My Weapon view "W" stopped working. I tried to unbind, bind, change keys but nothing works.

Please help.

Thanks.

Works fine here, nothing at all has changed in that code for a long time.

Maybe rebinding broke it. Check your WOFFkeys.xca file, maybe you have more than one entry in there for WeaponView.
Should only be ;

<Key ID="W" Action="WeaponView" FriendlyDesc="Weapon View" Category="ViewControl" P4Use="y"/>


File is in
C:\Users\<Your-Windows-User-Name>\AppData\Roaming\OBD_Games\OBDWW1 Over Flanders Fields

After a long absence, a couple of days ago, I finally installed v1.37 and started binding my HOTAS. The W function ("Weapon Camera" or Lean to sight) worked perfectly. But then, a day later, it suddenly stopped working. I had to reinstall the whole game, but to no avail. Of course, I can restore Windows 11 from backups and try again, but it's a drag to waste so much time. I always keep my gaming computer in order, where I also have DCS, FC, BMS installed. This is so inexplicable that it drives me crazy. Thanks, Polovski!

I use Windows 11 with no issues, I have never seen something like that. Only thing I can think of is as above, or you have another running /resident program that uses keyboard, OR another controller that is using "W" for something. BTW I think you may be confusing the key. Weapon View is the View from a falling bomb, not your gunsight. If you bound both to W then that may be the issue too.

Default Gunsight view is F6 (cycles Pilot views).

Not sure what you mean.
" ("Weapon Camera" or Lean to sight)"

There is no Weapon Camera that leans to a sight. As I say I am pointing out you may be mixing up the two. W is the view that switches to bomb view if you dropped a bomb - nothing to do with gunsights.
F6 cycles through cockpit views including viewing the gunsight.

Did you check the WOFFkeys.xca file as in the first post? You can send it to support email if you want me to look.

I was mixing up two games Polovski. F6 works good enough for me in WoFF. Sorry for the confusion earlier and thanks for all your pointers.

Cheers!
