View Full Version : Is it possible to switch off the view rotation by the mouse ?

I was thinking about assigning a function to the mouse wheel, but noticed that moving the mouse itself rotates the view. To me that seems very annoying, because as soon as you grab the mouse to use the wheel, you have a complete different view view. So I would like to know if there is a solution for this, e.g. switching of the view rotation function of the mouse. I couldn't find anything on this subject in the manual.

I'm not sure, but there is an option in the cnfg.ini - file:

"MouseUse = 2"

I'd guess setting it to "0" would disable mouse-view, but I'm not sure in this, cause I never actually tried it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Isn't the mouse required to scroll the map though? I don't think you can scroll the map any other way except for 'click and grab' with the mouse. Also, aren't the turret gunner positions only controlled by the mouse? I seem to remember in the dim, distant past I tried turrets with a hatswitch and it didn't work(?) I can't remember if that is an accurate memory though. Anyway, point is, you probably wouldn't want to disable mouse movement completely, because it does other stuff.
But, if your other hand isn't on the mouse, where is it?? I ask this because you should be altering your throttle constantly, especially in a dogfight. So if you haven't got your hand on the mouse constantly to change the view, I'm wondering if it is such a good idea to put the throttle there?

Thanks for replying.
I use a joystick and have the throttle assigned to the slider there. But I was thinking to assign elevator trim to the mousewheel.

If you have optical mouse, put small piece of white or black tape on bottom--cover the red light. Don't use clear tape. This stops the mouse from detecting mouse movement. Works every time without fail.
