How do you adjust how far Pan moves


Recommended Posts

I have FSX and am running in VC mode. I have Pan (Up,Down,etc.) assigned to the hat switch with repeat off (using FSUIPC paid version). When I click the hat switch the pan moves a certain amount. Let's say 1/4 inch. Each click moves another 1/4 inch. Is there a way I can adjust (fine-tune) how far the pan click travels each time the hat switch is pressed? Maybe I want 1/8 inch, or maybe 1/2. inch.

I use this when I adjust by multiple monitor configuration to line up the screens.

Thanks,

Arnie

I don't really know, but i don't think so. Why not assign the hat to the PAN VIEW control via the axis assignments tab instead? That's continuous I think.

I use this when I adjust by multiple monitor configuration to line up the screens.

Are these undocked views? I think you should be able to configure those more permanently by editing view windows in the PANEL.CFG.

Hi Pete,

I'm not using panels on the multi monitors. I use full screen VC views, so that's why things have to be lined up right. But,it looks like I found a solution. In the cameras.cfg (the one that's with fsx.cfg not the one in microsoft/games/fsx), there are 3 parameters:

PitchPanRate=

HeadingPanRate=

PanAcceleratorTime=

By adjusting these in the VC section (or any other pan section), I can accomplish exactly what I need. These actually change the angle rate of change and the acceleration. So now I can use the hat switch with repeat on and finely adjust these parameters to move a little or a lot and at the speed I want. Works great. This may help some others as well.

Here is the website for the field definitions with appropriate values:

As usual, thanks for your great input.
