disabling mouse wheel in xp11

Recommended Posts

Does anyone how to disable the wheel. When turning knobs and wheels, a small deviation of the mouse and the panel view increases or decreases. It's not my idea of using the mouse wheel.

I wouldn't want the mouse wheel to be disabled: I do however want the zoom option with the mouse disabled when in VC view. I asked about this before but it seems it is not possible to do so. Oddly enough. I also hate it when I suddenly zoom in or out because I moved the mouse or viewpoint a little: that happens a lot with those tiny clickspots and specially when you use TrackIR. (Yes, I know you can pause TrackIR but I don't want to paise it everytime I need to change a setting in the VC...)

That's one of the reasons why i prefer click+drag (like it's done in the IXEG or FlyJSim planes) over mouse wheel for knobs anytime. When I switched from FSX/P3D to X-Plane, i thought that mouse wheel support for turning knobs was essential, and it took me a few days getting used to the "new" concept.

 

Turns out, I now always turn off mouse wheel for buttons in planes that support this (e.g. FF 767/757), because I just find it uncomfortable and prefer the other methods.

The Quest Kodiak has a menu option to disable the zoom wheel, so it is possible.  Maybe someone could write a universal plug in for that.

It should be clear to the developers that in a "shaking cockpit", the mouse wheel controlling definite location switches is not practical.

I hope they address this.

Well, they fought against this feature for more than 3 years, with exactly these arguments, but many users claimed to know it better...

They finally gave in in X-Plane 10.50. And I don´t think that they will take it back. It is one of several control options, so it is the jobof the designer of the aircraft, to choose, which control works best.
