Cessna 172 with G1000: some VC-buttons not working?

Recommended Posts

After flying a lot with the (great) FSX default Cessna 172 I wanted to give the version with the G1000 a try. Now I have a Track IR 4 Pro and I never ever use a popup screen to get things done (only, which I regret a lot, the GPS, which I use to search for ILS-frequencies). I like and want to do everything from within the VC! (Is it possible to cram the GPS into the VC somewhere...? Probably not...)Now the only problem I had with the 172 was that the handbrake couldn't be handled with the mouse. So I had to use the keyboard for that one. But to my surprise the G1000 version of the 172 has more (identical) buttons/levers/knobs that don't work! Like the flap, bat and alt.Is everyone having these same none-working buttons or is there something wrong with my install? It's very strange that the EXACT same buttons don't work in another version of the plane...

I was still talking about the GPS-popup in the normal 172. ;) Could have made that more clear, yes... I know everything about the G1000 (well, almost): I think I was one of the first people who posted stuff about how to use it last year. ;) (In fact, YOU pointed out to me that - XML syntax changes aside - the FSX G500 GPS and the FS9 G500 GPS are line for line identical code! Which was a real eye-opener for me... ;) )Anyway, anyone knows if it is possible to get flaps and bat and alt working in the VC? (Apart from assigning keyboard commands to them, of course!)
