While flying the Corsair in the "stand alone" version, the "change seat position" does not activate the function. The F2 (external view) clearly shows the canopy opening, and the pilot clearly rising to an elevated position. In F1 (cockpit view), the canopy opens, but there is no change in the seat position. The binding of canopy o/c and change seat position in the controls menue was done. Any ideas? Thanks....

Ok, so you open the cockpit with a command

and then you raise the seat with a command

and your viewpoint doesn't change?

It does in my PF, and the merged install should have nothing to do with it

Try changing your bound commands

To change seat height:

Make sure you're in an aircraft that has an adjustable seat.

Open the cockpit.

Adjust your posture using the "Toggle Gunsight" control (default key is Shift-F1) so you're not leaned forward to look through the gunsight.

Press the key you assigned for "Toggle Seat Position". You did assign one didn't you? There's no default control for this one.

Tully, as always, is right http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Also the external animation of showing the seat raising as the canopy opens is misleading as you don't actually raise in your seat just by opening the canopy.

Thanks, Chuck, Tully and Wte_Dukayn. We live and learn, even at my age. All systems are go...
