Mouse Click issues suddenly

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone

I have been using fsx for years now with no really problematic issues until today. I am not too sure what I have done but trying to adjust heading bugs or altitude bugs etc the value is skiping every second one.

For example radio frequencies jump from 118.50 to 120.50 then 122.50 and decimal points go 118.70 to 118.90 without being able to get 118.75, 118.80, 118.85... etc. Altitudes seem to be jumping 300 ft at a time.

Can anyone give me any advice on what i have done and how to fix it. Have tried backup FSX.cfgs but to no avail.

Can someone help me please.

Cheers Barra

Seen this before but only with certain aircraft, usually some freeware. I use registered FSUIPC "Fix Control acceleration" to resolve it.

Hi Rendi

Thanks for your input. I just tried your suggestion to no avail. I am getting pretty scared about this considering the work getting FSX running where I have it!!

Does anyone else have any ideas?

I have no idea what causes it or how to fix it, but I've got one aircraft where I experience it occasionally. For example, the heading bug will start jumping by 10 with every movement of the scroll wheel. I can usually get it back to 1 degree by left click and drag on the control, which usually fixes the problem.

 

Sometimes the mouse wheel is the problem. Try a different mouse.

 

I've found that I sometimes have to scroll back and forwards a bit to get the value I want because the change either doesn't happen, or it jumps by 2 or more. I usually rotate the mouse wheel a bit before using it on a control.

 

The "click" feel you get with a mouse wheel doesn't always correspond with the signal the mouse sends to the computer. This can happen on a new mouse as well. Not much to be done about that. Note: I use a Microsoft brand mouse exclusively.

Hi Larry

Would you believe after days of mucking around with it, I seem to have it working. I actually went to my devices and mouse settings and did a reset to default and now everything appears to be working ok.

Many thanks for you help and advice and hopefully this will work with anybody that has a similar problem in the future.

I dont know why I didnt think of it before!!

Cheers

Yay! \o/

 

I had a quick look at my mouse settings, but I didn't see anything useful there. Glad you got it working.
