Asobo, please, give us back the old keyboard configuration!

Recommended Posts

I don't know if these considerations of mine may be of interest to anyone but I propose them anyway hoping they can open a fruitful discussion.

I want to talk about keyboard commands. I don't understand why, after P3D had also adopted the same keyboard commands as FSX, Asobo has revolutionized everything, creating not a little confusion.
I would like to propose to you to ask Asobo to introduce the option of being able to import all the keyboard commands of FSX (or P3d). 
In this way, anyone who wanted would be able to adopt the well-known classic FSX (or P3d) shortkey configuration by manually configuring those new functions not provided by the old simulators (for example the free video camera).

What do you think about it?

Yes, this also could be a very good solution! 😄

You can already purchase P3D from Lockheed if you want an obsolete sim.

I don't mind having new key commands, some I already reassigned. But I do wish they provided us with a list of all the key commands that we could quickly reference.

This!

There are a lot of keyboard references on the web, and many I've seen have errors (F4 = full throttle?  I wish).  Probably because they were made from earlier versions of the sim.

You know FS has a "database" in it of what key is mapped to what... it should be a simple matter to compile that info and present it as a printable PDF or whatever.  Then you'd have a reference which by definition is correct, and includes any customizations you've made.  Win-win.

And while we're at it, what the heck is up with the "basic controls" window?  All it does is show my joystick with the buttons numbered, not what they do.  What's the point?

Could you imagine if they came out with their own version, would make things interesting...

Your posts usually give the impression you work for the Microsoft marketing department.

The OP made a valid point. Change for the sake of change may appeal to you, but is not always an improvement, particularly when combined with poor or obscure documentation.
