PP3Dv4 DC-6 many keyboard and mouse commands not working

Recommended Posts

I first downloaded the DC-6 last week and had a small number of successful flights. It is a great aircraft! However, as of today when I load the aircraft and enter the VC, I am not able to activate some of the controls. I can put the mouse on the parking brake and set and unset the brake, and I can get the yoke to go down (the "disappear" mode), can get the arm rests to go up/down, and perhaps a few more. But most of the other controls I attempt to activate seem to be "dead". For example, I am unable to unlock the flight controls, move the throttles, mixture, propeller pitch controls, and unable to move most of the controls on the overhead panels for starting the engines, lights, etc. Help would be appreciated, thanks.

After two or three more attempts yesterday to run P3Dv4, when the problem described was still there with the DC-6 (but the other planes I tried worked perfectly well), then I just started the sim earlier today, and the DC-6 now works as it should. Not sure what the problem was, but whatever it was, it seems to have "fixed itself."

If you are using a camera addon that moves your view point for you, it might be that the view point was in the headrest blocking the click spots.
