Hello, after not using RoF for a couple of months I now find that I cannot alter the view using the mouse, and it seems that it is stuck in Centered Snap view. I suspected a Windows 10 update problem, so removed the recent large update but this did not help. Any suggestions would be welcome since this makes RoF almost useless to me for my type of flying.

Chas.

Are you flying using mouse control or joystick control? (You might want to check your settings/options screen to make sure the right box is still ticked).

 

IIRC, with mouse control you have to press some key in order to look around with your mouse - otherwise, the game thinks you're trying to fly toward your mouse movement instead of look toward it.  If you're using joystick control, then perhaps you should cycle through the pan/snap modes (IIRC, the F9 key does that by default) and see if one of them works the way you want.

 

Good luck!

Thank you for your prompt response, and I hope I have not wasted your time -  since writing the above I re-loaded the sim from the DVD and was delighted to find that all was working as before!

For the record, I was using joystick control but the F9 key had no effect - I have not checked this out yet, but am happy with what I have.

Thank you again,

Chas

A further thought, in case it is helpful, I had previously been trying out a head tracking device, EDTracker with Opentrack, and did change my profile back to normal but perhaps the Sim thought  I still had it connected, Silly me!
