Proportional Falloff in vrs. 2.45?

Hi, I just downloaded Blender 2.45 and haven’t been able to use the falloff mode. It worked fine with previous versions, but does nothing now.

I have it on, but when I move it, they don’t get dragged along:

It won’t even give me the circle to allow me to control the strength of the falloff. Using the mouse scroll wheel and page up/page down does bubkis.

Anyone got any advice?

dunno what to say dude, works fine for me. you sure you don’t have it on constant falloff or something?

works for me to. maybe your scroll wheel is broken or somthing.

Works fine for me, but I can adjust the sphere after hitting G or whatever, and I don’t use the on screen widget thing.
