Getting into mouse yoke mode

Postby Samgordon » Mon Apr 02, 2018 6:57 pm

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know how to get to mouse yoke mode? The only thing I can do is click on things in the cockpit using the left mouse button and moving the view by clicking on the right mouse button and moving the pointer.

Thanks.

Either: Click right mouse button once or twice.
Or: Press the "Tab"-key once or twice.

Thanks. The tab key works but the clicking the right mouse button doesn't work for some reason. All I can do is move the view by clicking the right mouse button and dragging the mouse.

Thanks.

the middle button/wheel also does things depending on the mode you're in...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.

Thanks about the middle button. The only thing I know to do with it is to adjust the throttle, which seems to be better during taxiing using the 3 and 9 keys though.

Best.

clicking the left button on knobs will rotate the knobs clockwise (turn them up)...
clicking the middle button/wheel on knobs will rotate the knobs counterclockwise (turn them down)...

there is simple built-in help as well as a fairly informative manual with some of these hints in them ;)
