[RESOLVED] Mouse Wheel not turning knobs in VC

Postby Flyboyaz » Thu May 21, 2020 1:56 pm

Hi all! I'm hoping someone can help with this as I've tried just about everything to fix it and it's not working. I am unable to turn and knobs or switches using my mouse wheel. I'm in V5 HF1. I thought at first my mouse was bad, but after switching to another mouse, it does the same thing. I am able to turn knobs in the 2D panels however, which is weird. The mouse wheel works for zooming no problem. I had EZDOK installed and I changed to ChasePlane so I wasn't sure if something got messed up with that? I deleted my Controls folder and had the sim generate a new one, but that also didn't work. Is there something else I should do to see if this will work?

Thank you!

Hello,

Does unchecking the "Enable Advanced Mouse Controls" option in the "Other Controls" menu fix this? There could potentially be a conflict with mouse controls and an add-on.

Hi Rob,

It still doesn't work with that unchecked. I've looked at everything I can think of in the add ons I have. FSUIPC I don't have the mouse options selected. I realize that add ons can be a bit tricky to figure out, but I wanted to start here since you guys know the sim the best :)

Just for giggles, the cfg setting Fullscreen= ... I think I set it to "True", would that be a problem? I'm not sure what it does and I just remembered that I did that. I can't test it now because I'm "mid flight" haha.

Well that wasn't it either so I'm at a loss now, not sure where else to check. Also did the DPI compatibility thing too. :(

@ Flyboyaz,

You mentioned:
"I am unable to turn and knobs or switches using my mouse wheel."

Can you use a default aircraft to show your problem?
If so, I will do the same test.

I just used the F35 and it doesn't work with that either.

Turning any knobs. The left/right clicks work but not the mouse wheel

I edited it. I don't use image hosting so I had to setup an account and got a security email after I posted here. Hopefully that works. Otherwise I can just tell you what's selected or not on the options
