Mouselook function has stopped working
Posted 28 December 2012 - 05:24 PM
I have the latest FSUIPC release and I have not installed any addon recently on FSX. I have tried to disable and re-enable the function and to replace the FSUIPC.dll (also with a different release), but no success.
The mouselook function is working well if activated via FSX menu, but not via FSUIPC. The mouse is OK, as I have tried with a different one with no effect...
Any idea of what happened and how to restore it ?

I have read that the use of loader.dll included in the 4.858 full install release may inhibit the mouselook function, but the point is I have not used loader.dll during install....

By "reinstalled", could you explain, please, exactly what you did? What version did you reinstall? Did you delete any files first -- for instance, the INI file?
I really cannot understand how a working feature can simply stop working with no other change anywhere in the system, but i need more information so I can investigate. For example, is this always only with Win 8? Does it happen during an actual session, or only on a restart?

- I did not installed any addon
- mouse trim/move do work
FSUIPC version: 4.859n
I've tried running windowed vs full-screen, disabled OPUS, unticked and ticked mouselook again but to no avail.

I'm thinking this is another Windows8 problem, like the disappearing controllers. I'll need confirmation from the others in this thread. i.e. answers to this question:
"Is this always only with Win 8? Does it happen during an actual session, or only on a restart?"
If it is Win8 only, then I doubt I can fix it because it would mean a standard Windows API function is not working correctly. Win8 updates may be the only solution. There's nothing complicated about the mouselook. The only crucial part is the receipt of Mouse messages in subclassed window procedures. Why that would vary from one time to another I don't know, but so far no one has told me whether it's the same throughout a session, or can disappear during a session. If it's a loading time difference it may be some sort of subclass timing difference afftecting the order of things, in which case it may be related to the similar problem when using the FSUIPC Loader.
When I have received sufficient information I'll investigate further.

Okay. Thanks. As i said in the other thread, I'm looking to see if I can fix it for the FSUIPC loader. If I can manage that I think it will fix other occasions. But it isn't easy. Got nowhere so far. But that's just Day 1.

If anyone still has a problem with FSUIPC4's MouseLook facility not working, or working inconsistently, please download this interim version and try it. Let me know, please:
It's taken two days solid to find a work-around which seems to fix the issue when the FSUIPC loader is used. I'm hoping that the issue experienced by some even without the Loader is similar so that the same fix works for that too.
Let me know.

Thank you for your 2 days of hard work.

Good. That's a relief!
