Windows 7 Pro 64 BitI have this problem too .
Logitech Extreme 3D Pro (Not the best controller to use not my preferred choice of controllers).
Started a post under General and discovered posted in the wrong section of the forums. Please don't thrash me for doing a double post.
Game controller is working and Key Board works untill you enter campaign/Training/Number 4 or change airplanes to fly?
When you enter the air plane for take off controller and key board works. Move your head left, right, up, down, zoom in & out, fire the weapon reload works. Key board F keys are working.
When you cross the first circle on the map the flak starts you cannot move your head left, right, up, down, zoom in or out, fire the weapon or reload. Key board F keys do not work. F-1 or F-2? The green indicator cone is missing.
You can turn the airplane, use the throttle, increase or decrease altitude. That's it.
Tried to set the key board back to Default settings. Missing something, the key board will not reset to Default settings only minus the flight controller. The reason I want to start over from default so I can properly map the controller.
How do I get the default settings back on the Key Board? I followed instructions in the manual? The settings for the flight controller is Single Engine Fighter.
Do I need to uninstall the game and reinstall the game? I hope not.
Why are some of the controller settings in column one where the key board settings are and other settings are in column 2? Mapped every thing for the controller in Colum 2.
Pretty frustrated with setting up a controller after 12 hours for ROF sim and still not having it work properly in game. Read the manual and forum post concerning controllers.
Someone please look into this .
I also have had this problem with the F keys during flight. If I am forced down, I can at least check on the status of my mates while I wait for mission end. The F keys will work in replay so I know that it is not a keyboard problem. I have had this problem since a fresh install on a new machine a week ago. For some reason there is an icon on the upper right screen that seems to indicate that I have dual monitors…. must rtfm and check that. I also cannot return to defaults in the control section.
I flew last night and had several successful quick missions. When I flew this morning (same quick mission) and had success in flight, however,the stats at the end indicated that I was wounded, crashed and was a prisoner of war. I seem to recall that this same problem occurred some months ago. I tested this same mission on another computer and had the same (erroneous) result.
Hope that there is a fix soon.
Never seen this sort of problem, but I'll be glad to try to check into it. Need more info, though, to make sure I'm testing apples to apples. If you're having this problem, please post a screenshot of (1) your controls/key command assignments screen(s) for the functions that you're having problems with not working, and (2) your game settings screens (realism settings etc.) for the mission(s) that you're seeing the problems in.
In the meantime, a couple of things pop out at me from the message above:Key board F keys do not work. F-1 or F-2?
- this usually means that "Allow Spectators" is not checked on the mission settings page. Might be worth checking to be sure it didn't get turned off by mistake.Tried to set the key board back to Default settings.

Not sure I understand - are you using some sort of special keyboard/controller software (your comment about "Single Engine Fighter" sounds like some special software profile), or are you just talking about resetting to defaults inside the RoF options screens? If the former, ditch that stuff and just use the RoF options screens, at least until you get things working without problems - once you get it working, if you want to try adding in some special software for some reason then give it a try.
As far as I can tell, there's only one "reset to default" mechanism in the RoF options screen, and it will reset all commands to defaults (I don't believe there's an automatic way to reset only the keyboard-assigned commands to default without also assigning the joystick-assigned commands to defaults as well, if that's what you're asking). It doesn't really take that long to assign your keyboard and joystick commands the way you want them, so why not just go ahead and reset to defaults and start over again from scratch? If you export/save your current settings down under a custom file name before you hit the reset button, you can always load/import them back in if the re-assignment process doesn't go well for some reason.Why are some of the controller settings in column one where the key board settings are and other settings are in column 2?

I don't know why they give you 3 choices of things you can assign to the same command - personally, I don't want to try to remember that much stuff so I never assign more than one key or controller function to any one command. As far as I can tell, it doesn't matter which column you use to assign the function to the command - if you want to use the columns to organize things (like all keyboard stuff in column 1, all joystick stuff in column 2), go ahead, but you don't need to do so and you can put any assignment in any column you like. The key thing is to avoid, whenever possible, having the same key/controller function assigned to more than one RoF command (and watch out for RoF keys also being assigned for things like TIR, Teamspeak, etc.) - it's always best to avoid any such conflicts, although apparently there are a couple of things in the RoF screens that don't seem to mind having duplicate assignments (e.g., some of the camera controls and the pilot head controls seem to co-exist OK, at least in my set-up, but that may just be because I don't really use the camera commands, at least when I'm also trying to move my pilot head).For some reason there is an icon on the upper right screen that seems to indicate that I have dual monitors
I believe that's telling you that there's a problem with your connection with the master server.
