I've recently installed the sim and have set up my joystick controls, the way I like them. Since I cannot use a TrakIR setup I use padlock view to help with situational awareness, then switch to cockpit view when in firing position. I have assigned a joystick button for each separate view to switch back and forth, for the single and quick missions this works fine. However, when I enter into a campaign or career mode, the padlock view no longer works. I have checked each and every time before I begin a mission in both the mission settings and the main game settings that my controls are set properly and checked in the list of settings for the mission. I have also tried to assign different buttons on the joystick thinking it could be a hardware bug, although the calibration program shows the stick in perfect working order. I have searched through this forum for similar issues and fixes but have not found any related topics to my problem.
Other than this problem, everything else works fine, I have also searched through the manual without finding anything meaningful to help explain why it only affects the career and campaign modes. If there is a setting somewhere for these particular mission modes other than the settings on each mission page and the main settings I cannot seem to locate it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
