Mouse will not turn switches. 747 QOTS 2

Recommended Posts

P3D V3. 

Can somebody please tell me why I can't get my mouse to hover over buttons and switch them with left or right clicks on the PMDG747. QOTS2?

I thought it might be EZDOC V2 so uninstalled that and purchased and installed Chaseplane and yet I still have the same results!  Even if Chaseplane is disabled. 

NGX and other aircraft work fine but everytime I load the 747 the mouse does not show the hovering hand. 

I am not within the headrest!

When I first installed 747 in February it was fine  

Thanks

Dean

Once this happened to me. It turned out to be the couatl module (part of FSDreamTeams' scenery)  had run amuck.

Since then, I don't run couatl as part of my DLL.XML. No FSDreamTeam scenery? No problem.

Check that your view is not inside the seat.  Sometimes this happens and you can see everything but not use the mouse.

I guess this could happen but I (and many others) run all kinds of their scenery and GSX without issue on many payware addons including the Queen.

To be sure. I had run with this enabled many times before without a problem.

...just a suggestion as to something to try.

Good luck, OP.

Thanks guys but I don't have anything from FS Dreamteam. And I'm not in the seat!

I had this problem aswell, with B737NGX.

My solution was an option inside FSUIPC (don't know if you use it).

In the "Misselanious"-tabs shows three radio-buttons for mouse-action.

After i disabled one of these option all was fine, don't remember wich one.

Hope this helps ;-)

Thanks William.

I have this evening heard from PMDG who suggested cause might be Malwarebytes or Antivirus.

I uninstalled Malwarebytes and reinstalled 747 and now knobs and switches are back working!

Cheers

Dean,

Try reloading Malwarebytes now that you have your mose working, because it has never caused me this problem.  The most frequent cause I have had for being unable to use the mouse to move switches, dials etc in the VC is because the eyepoint is too far away from the instrument panel.  All you have to do is move your eyepoint closer (Ctrl + backspace) until the mouse works.  Have a look at the six eyepoint commands under SETTINGS - CONTROLS IN FSX and play around with them as necessary.
