Sorry all I Am new of course. I cant get panning to work at all yet. Before I dive into this with both teeth may I ask for a wee bit o help with this Q.

How do I get the panning keys (as they are in the CFS2 defaults ) to work?
ALso anyone else annoyed at the fact that cfs2 doesnt seem to support sticky views?
Big battle and cant get foreward view to come on line except by pressing f4 2 or 3 times? Is this how its done?


Thanks in advance.

If your joystick has a throttle, or you have a stand alone throttle, remap the keyboard. Delete all the key commands for throttle input, and remap the panning views to them. This way you will only have to hit 1 key.
If you have multi keypress problems in general, you may want to click the keyboard icon in control panel and make some adjustments to the keystroke generation and repeat rates.

Havnt tried our ideas yet but its a start and I thank you for that
The remapping to the throttle keys seems s good idea Perhaps that will work too.

I'm addicted to using the mouse to pan in EAW, JWW2F, and Mig Alley....mouse in the left hand, stick in the right. It gives the best SA, especially in a turn fight. I was disappointed that CFS2 doesn't allow it (at least I can't figure it out). Anybody know how?
