Hey,

 

I want to be able to zoom in and zoom out using both left and right mouse button and move the HUB menu to the middle button (the mouse roller, which also doubles as a button).

I can't seem to figure how to do that.

Maybe it's one of the axis

A little more info would be helpful - for example, are you talking about trying to do this while you're in the cockpit flying, or while you're in external views? and what "HUB" are you talking about (or what part of the HUD are you talking about)?  And are you using mouse control or joystick control?

Sorry, 

I thought you knew my set up  :icon_lol:

 

I have a stick. I use the Mouse to look around (I do not have any IR yet)

 

When I right click, this comes up

I thought I could change it here

Options_Mouse_HUD.jpg

 

There isn't anything currently assigned to the Mouse Right Button. The "Look around mouse control" was the only thing with Mouse Right button assigned. 

 

Like I said, my instincts are to left and right click to zoom in and out, so it gets annoying. My right hand is on the stick (my better-coordinated hand*), so it is doubly hard to train the left hand for such fine movements. 

 

* Just an FYI- I have an oddity. I write with my right, but I throw with my left. I was also left side dominated with my foot, though I trained myself to use the right pretty well.  :icon_e_smile:  Anway, the left is power, while the right is finesse. 

 

I hope this helps.... Thanks for your help!

The HUD toggle is under Controls / Service / Show.hide.hud.

I just tried mouse wheel click and it works for me.

 

You don't have a switch your thumb sits on for zooming ?

I always think that's the logical assignment for that.

Thanks, I will try that! 

 

The mouse is on my left hand. It is a right-hand mouse.

IIRC, there is no way to reprogram the right mouse key not to bring up the little widget menu - that seems to have been hard coded by the devs for some reason.  Maybe someone has figured out a way though, and I just don't remember seeing it (couldn't figure it out in my brief testing this morning, either).  I have zoom assigned to my PoV hat switch on my joystick, which works great, so you may want to try that if you can't get used to zooming with your mouse wheel.

Oh I see, I had a feeling it was a hardcoded thing. You can't actually zoom in/out with the wheel itself. You can use it for the external view, but not from the cockpit. This is why I use the mouse wheel button as a temporary alternative.

Actually, yes you can - I was doing it on my test run this morning.

 

I'll post a screenshot of my settings shortly.

OK, I accidentally found a head zoom in which I can zoom in and out with the Mouse wheel. I no longer need to change the Mouse right button. Yeah  :icon_e_biggrin:

 

Thanks for the help gentleman!
