Mouse wheel control rudder

Postby namkhai » Thu Dec 28, 2017 10:54 pm

Hi, I am new on FlightGear, and I would use my mouse wheel for controlling the rudder.

I have searched in DuckDuckGo, but I finded nothing, I know that I need edit the flightgear/data/mice.xml, but I no have idea of how I can do this.

Thanks :D

Hello namkhai

Just press TAB in order to get controls over mouse mode. Left click before moving mouse Left-Right. That''s the standard way.

For the wheel mouse, no idea, I'm just writing to rush your unanswer post if maybe some dev is available during Hollidays.


Welcome aboard, hope you enjoy FG.

Have a nice flight.

Try in editing mice.xml
Make a back up first. These are two approaches.

Code: Select all
   <!-- extra buttons control [s]elevator trim[/s] for rudder-->
   <!-- these are [s]often[/s] assigned to mouse-wheel motion in Linux -->
   
   
<!--First method-->
<!-- With factor offset -->

<button n="3">
  <desc>Rudder</desc>
  <binding>
   <command>property-scale</command>
   <property>/controls/flight/rudder</property>
   <factor>1.0</factor>
   <offset>0.0</offset>
  </binding>
 </axis>   

<button n="4">
  <desc>Rudder</desc>
  <binding>
   <command>property-scale</command>
   <property>/controls/flight/rudder</property>
   <factor>1.0</factor>
   <offset>0.0</offset>
  </binding>
 </axis>   
   
<!--Second method-->

<!--With step type -->

 <button n="3">
  <desc>Rudder</desc>
  <binding>
   <command>property-scale</command>
   <property>/controls/flight/rudder</property>
 <step type="double">0.01</step>
  </binding>
 </axis>   


<button n="4">
  <desc>Rudder</desc>
  <binding>
   <command>property-scale</command>
   <property>/controls/flight/rudder</property>
 <step type="double">0.01</step>
  </binding>
 </axis>
