recently installed janes wwii fighters on my old system with the saitek cyborg 3d gold usb joystick, i have been wondering the pov doesnt move in 8short views in wwii fighters it moves as smooth as mouselook on my siatek x45 on my good comp. Is there any editing of the config.ini that can change a pov to move as smooth as mouse cursor control? Or is it something in the way the game is designed? Any help would be appreciated

Hit F9. That enables smooth scroling.

For smooth moves, I use my mouse. I have seen small thumb size track balls. It would be cool to mount one of those on my stick.

thats the thing gibbage on my good comp p4 3.06 i use the saitek x45 with the mouse cursor control. On my amd 1800 i use the saitek cyborg gold and the pov works as smooth as the mouse in wwii fighters but in fb it it jumps to left view top view etc with f9 it auto centers. If a stoneage game like janes wwii fighters can use the pov as smooth as the mouse there has to be a way oleg can do it in the sim also, but who knows maybe he has a deal with track ir not to to promote thier 150 dollar product.

I bought one of those thumb-sized track-ball mice. It was made by fellowes, and only cost me about 12 dollars. My problem was figuring out a way to use it . . . until my wife said: "Duct-tape it to the keyboard". So that's what I did. It lives on the left side, next to the caplock, and tab keys. It lets me track with my left hand while using the stick with my right. I also mapped a button on it to center my view. I also sometimes use Cam2Pan which turns my cheap webcam into a head-tracker. I use a capmark, and turn the brightness and color of the cam down till all I see on the display is a white mark. It then tracks very well! Oh, yeah, the other thing I do: I use padlock, and mapped the "center with padlock" (Ins) key to joy button 5 on my Cyborg FF stick. In case you haven't figured it out yet, I am a cheap bastard. Or was that a poor bastard?

I dont understand why IL-2 doesnt support smooth hatswithch panning out of the box...most other sims do.

I'm using this program for it:

There was a smooth pan mouse emulator if you will that some russian created from the track ir .dll. I used it on the saitek mini stick for sometime and it was as smooth as a mouse. Check Sim Hq for the post. It was probably a month or so ago.

The only way to get the smooth panning in IL2 Sturmovik/Forgotten Battles is mouse or mouse emulation (emulation includes TrackIR and the little mouse hats on several of the better joysticks).
