Thread: Can't Close Camera Menu after Selecting Freelook?????

  1. #1

    Default Can't Close Camera Menu after Selecting Freelook?????

    Anyone know how to get the mouse pointer back after selecting Free Look in the camera menu? It totally disappears, and I can't close the pop up menu screen, and this only started after this new "update". They gotta get their act together real fast. Its getting old with them breaking everything.

    Screenshot of the menu I can't close included. PC Specs in my signature.

    Johnny, have you tried the middle mouse button (wheel)?
    For me.. clicking the wheel alternates between fixed look and freelook.

    I not know if it’s relevant, but you might want to go into general settings..accessibility tab.. and make sure “cockpit interaction system” is on legacy, rather than lock.
    It certainly makes things clickable in the cockpit again (why did they change it??) but it may also fix your problem?

    By the way.. anyone else get two exclamation marks in the toolbar? I get one above the flight assistant and one above the controls icon.
    Clicking the icons removes the exclamation marks but the are back every time I start a flight. One of the many annoying things from this update.


    Edit: while typing this, I heard the usual chimes of my Reverb G2 going off / standby and MSFS locked up as a result! Couldn’t find the mouse, as if that had disconnected too.. was trying to open task manager to force it when the mouse came back on and flight sim was ok again.

    Regards
    Steve

    Good shout Steve, the Release Notes also mentions this in the Known Issues section:

    * User can get stuck in the Freelook view and be unable to bring the cursor back up
    * Workarounds:
    * Restart the flight, this will set the Cockpit Camera Type back to Fixed Look.
    * Use a mouse and press the scroll wheel in, this will change Camera Type back to Fixed Look.
    * Go to Options > General > Camera > Cockpit Camera > Toggle Home cockpit mode "OFF".

    Tim, thanks for the link to the release notes, and thanks for the info on that lock up. I knew it had to be some kind of bug going around with it. I'll also toggle home cockpit mode off. Thanks again for your help as well. I'll keep you all posted.

    Update: Got it going again everyone. Thanks for your help. Not sure what I did, but at least its back to the way it was before the update with the controls. Much appreciated.
