Thread: Cockpit views set-up

  1. #1

    Question Cockpit views set-up

    I use numpad 1-9 to navigate views round the cockpit in FS9 - 7 forward left & 9 forward right, for example. Will some kind person remind me how to set this up, please.
    I was going to help a new simmer I know to do this but I did this so long ago, I simply cannot remember now.......

    Many thanks.

    Yes, but do the numpad 1-9 buttons pick it up automatically or are they assigned to do it ?

    Those are all the default numpad assignments, except the VIEW_AUX ones which are clickspot activated in my FS9 Tiger Moth 2D panel only.

    Yes, it's automatic if you do not change them to something else.

    The key assignments to the various view commands are changed by:

    1. Options/Controls/Assignments
    2. View Commands from the drop down box.
    3. Scroll down to the Look assignments.
    4. Click on an assignment.
    5. Click Change Assignment
    6. Follow the instructions.

    The angle and zoom of those views are set in the panel.cfg file as listed in the post above.

    For keypad view changes make sure NUM LOCK is not lit up ('On'). That MAY be what 'gives'?
