What have I missed?

First, FB is gorgeous!!! I'm running excellent settings and it's as smooth as IL-2 was!

Anyway...I can't seem to change views with the 'F' keys. I can pan my view w/the numpad, throttle works w/keyboard number keys, assigned keys on the keyboard seem to do as assigned, (default at this point only) and the mouse pans my view around.
But when I try to use Crtl+F1 I can't get to the "Wonder Woman" view, F2 doesn't let me get an external view, Ctrl+F2 doesn't show enemy a/c.

I tried going to the Controls menu and resetting them, no change.
/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
I couldn't find anything about this in the manual or in the ReadMe. Mudmovers doesn't seem to cover it.

Any suggestions? Links to threads that discuss the issues?

A virtual slap in the face for obvious stupidity?

I don't mind flying Full Real, but I would like to gawk at all the cool new aircraft available, especially the non-flyable AI craft.
(btw, do the numbers in "user defind FOV" relate to degrees of view?)

Your help is (as always) greatly appreciated.

Sounds kind of weird. Are you sure you have only F2 for external in controls. Nothing else is with it? Same for all the other views?

F1..Cockpit
F2 .External
Ctrl+F1..no cockpit

You should have nothing else assinged for these controls. Also, to get no cockpit, You have to be in the cockpit. You can't go from external to no cockpit unless you were in no cockpit when you went to external. How about chase view (F8)? Does that work?

Hi there,

You should check your difficulty settings - FB has two whole pages of them...If you have selected realistic as a general difficulty theme, you've likely disabled the external views and no-cockpit features.

Hope that can help!
