F9 gives Glareshield instead of VC

Recommended Posts

After many years of purchasing the product, I am finally trying to invest some time into it.

I thought it was awesome to bind the F9-F10-F11-F12 keys to the most common panel viewpoints, until i discovered that F9 is bound to GLARESHIELD instead of VC (which has the Spacebar-mouse look around disabled).

Is there a separate keyboard shortcut for returning to the Virtual Cockpit view?

Thanks!

Does key 'A' cycle the views?

A and S keys are standard view cycle.

Thanks I figured it out.

In the aircraft.cfg file, Aerosoft is rebinding the default HotKeyselect = 1 (F9) to their Glareshield View instead of the default Virtual Cockpit. This would be OK, except that their Glareshield view also has AllowZoom = 0. Which would ALSO be OK IMHO, if I could be able to quickly go back to the Virtual Cockpit (which I cant, again, because the F9 view no longer points to the default VC)!

As a workaround, I commented out ( prepend ";") the HotKeyselct line under their [CAMERADEFINITION.000] section on all Aerosoft aircraft.cfg files, which restores the default P3D assignment of F9 to the default VC view.

I figured I am on the VC a whole lot more often than on the glareshield, thank you.
