Question: Space Shooter (Shoot 'em up)

Greetings all. ^^

I have a bit of a problem in which I hope you guys can maybe help, it is most probably something simple, but I’m not quite sure how to go about in getting it to work.:confused:

First off, I’m currently working on a space shooter, that requires the mouse to be used to control the spaceship’s movement, on top of that I’ve added 2 simple animations that I’m looking at playing when the ship goes left or right directions.

It is a top down shooter, however the spaceship I’m trying to get to move according to the mouse’s movement. The idea I wanted with the mouse, I got easily done with the keyboard.

Here is an example of what I’m aiming at doing. I’m not quite sure if this will require a python script or if this can be done with the logic bricks.

The weapons and all I’ve got that done with the ship and what-not, but the mouse is now my main concern, the keyboard was easy to mount the controls to but the mouse isn’t, for me. :confused:

I’m currently using Blender 2.49b

Does anyone maybe know how to get the ship to be controlled by the mouse?
