Reset View doesn't work in FS2004 via PFC.DLL


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I am just concerting some of my flight simming from FS2002 to FS9.

I had "Reset View" assigned to the Right Front Button of my PFC Jetliner Yoke. In FS2002 this command did reset zoom level and view direction to the default.

In FS9 with the same button assignment nothing happens.

I have this command assigned to the Shift-Spacebar on the keyboard.

Using the keystroke command it seems to work.

Any ideas?

Is the actual name of the FS control "View reset"? There's isn't one named the other way round.

In FS9 with the same button assignment nothing happens.

If it is "View Reset" you are talking about, yes, that is true. It seems to have lost its function in FS9.

I have this command assigned to the Shift-Spacebar on the keyboard. Using the keystroke command it seems to work.

Using what? FSUIPC or FS assignments? The "View Reset" control certainly doesn't work here no matter where or how I assign it.

Wherever it may be assigned, it is still the same control and the action would still be simply to send the View Reset control to FS. The default use of the spacebar in FS (without the shift) is an "eyepoint reset" which sets the eyepoint back after it's been raised, lowered or twisted. But that doesn't restore forward view nor restore a default Zoom level.

In FS2002 and before the View Reset control did work, and operated on view direction and zoom level. It was, by default, assigned to the space bar in FS2002, and would work through PFC.DLL or FSUIPC.DLL or any other way. It even appeared in the FS Assignments List.

I don't know whether MS removed it deliberately or just broke it accidentally, but it no longer appears in their assignments list and, as I say, the space bar is by default now an Eyepoint Reset, which doesn't do the same thing.

All I can suggest is to program the button in FSUIPC to give View Forward, then edit the FSUIPC.INI file to add another line to make it also send a Zoom 1x control. maybe another line for an Eyepoint Reset too, for good measure.

Regards,

Pete
