Is there any way to adjust the scroll speed of looking around? When I use my flight stick to look around, it moves slower than what I'd like. Can it be sped up?

Thanks.

I've copied and pasted this from my thread in 2017 Jake..not to sure if it still helps it should do..the 1st part is for smaller Tac display the 2nd..for faster view in VC mode.



Found a older thread regarding making the TAC display a bit smaller on screen Thanks Pol(for those who use the Tac you lightweights biggrin haha)

1...Go to c:\users\(your username)\Appdata\Roaming\OBD_Games\OBDWW1\Over Flanders Fields...
Open ViewUI.xml (notepad woks fine) find
B
</HUDVsiMetric>
<TacticalDisplay BGIMage="tactical_display.dds" BGPos="0 0" BGSize="512 512" BGScale="0.30" BackColor="0x1f0000FF" Mode="0"/>
<TacticalDisplayMetric BGIMage="tactical_display.dds" BGPos="0 0" BGSize="512 512" BGScale="0.30"
BackColor="0x1f0000FF" Mode="0"/>

And CHANGE the BGscale 0.30 to 0.25 or even 0.20 if you like..it still keeps the TAC but it only takes up a small corner of your screen. Works great for me guys

2...Also anyone not using Trackir but wanting your view to move a bit quicker (VC mode) find

<ViewUI Default="VirtualCockpitView">
<VirtualCockpitView FovScale="1.0" RotationRate="0.9"

And Change the rotation rate from 0.9 to 1.5 or higher for a faster view rate

I believe the SCROLL LOCK key changes view rate from snap views to smooth viewing


There is of course the option of using mouse look Jake.



BTW When you save with notepad, make sure you do not save as ".txt" or it will save as viewUI.xml.txt
which won't work.

save as the original extension .xml.

Thanks, Adger. I changed - <ViewUI Default="VirtualCockpitView"> <VirtualCockpitView FovScale="1.0" RotationRate="0.9"

to - <ViewUI Default="VirtualCockpitView"> <VirtualCockpitView FovScale="1.0" RotationRate="1.5"

Much better. I'll increase the 1.5 to 2.0. I can just about look around now as well as if I were really in cockpit.

Thanks again.

If you left click the mouse then you can scroll around that way. Left click again to get out of that mode. Then... there is the TrackIR software/hardware!

I didn't know that. I'll try that, too. Thank you.
