Joystick Hatswitch Panning

Recommended Posts

Good day simmers. Just wondering how I can get my hat switch on my joystick to pan around the VC cockpit with Chaseplane closed. It seems when I close Chase plane I can't pan around the aircraft with my hat switch anyone tell me how to fix this? I've checked my controls in the sim and the hat switch is set to pan in the sim but it's not working. Thanks

Mmm... weird. FSX or P3D? Regardless the sim you're using, the only thing that comes to my mind to fix that is to click on "Reset defaults" button in "Controls" menu and the re-configure your hardware again.

If you have set your controls correctly, then the only place they should be defined is in CP, which means the pan won't work when CP isn't active.

However, if I'm interpreting your message correctly it looks like you also have your pan switch active in the sim's controls panel.  

If that's the case then the pan will work outside of the aircraft, but not in the VC.  The reason being that upon installation, CP replaced the default VC view with it's own."On-Board (Chaseplane)" view.

To pan in VC when CP is closed you would need to restore the default camera.cfg, which CP saved.  However, as soon as you open CP, it will change the settings back.

In FSX it should be in the AppData folder Roaming\MIcrosoft\FSX\.   Mine is named  camera.cfg.fsxp.bkp.

I would assume something similar in P3D, but I don't have it to verify.
