weird rudder problem only in multiplayer mode

Postby pjfleet » Mon Dec 27, 2010 4:16 am

so I finally was able to get into multiplayer mode. great.

only problem is, I only have left rudder, which kinda makes flying difficult.

normally, I press the Enter key on the keypad to turn the rudder to the right.

has anyone else had the misfortune to suffer this fate, or is it just lucky old me getting stuffed around again for no good reason?

to increase the weirdness factor of this problem, I changed a few settings in FGRun, tried going into multiplayer again, and right rudder worked - for a short time, before locking up again and only having left rudder.

note i dont have this problem at all playing offline.

the aircraft is the 737-300. i will see if this is an aircraft related problem.

ok kiddies here is the solution!!!

you cant have the chat window on AND use the right rudder at the same time!!! so kinda bad luck if you want to fly and see what people are talking about, using keyboard controls.

You can work around this by pressing - to bring up the ATC menu and then pressing 1 for custom message- this is a lot faster and more convenient than using the chat dialog IMO.

Instead of the chat dialog, just press shift + - and type in your message that way. :)
