for use in IL2/FB/AEP/PF
uses the TrackIR coding in IL2 Sturmovik™ to make any hat switch
into what some call "mouse look". It is much smoother
than either of the two default views.
this is how I set up Newview for use in full real flight.
off, download the current version of Newview which is free.
View Ignore the Cam2pan... it is not needed. You will find
the zip file halfway down the page. (il2_newview.zip)
newview into it's own folder where it it will reside. Execute the
Config.exe and hit the "Create/update
INI file" button. It will save the INI file.
top... got to the Joystick tab. In the POV drop
down menu, choose POV1. Now check your hat switch...
move it around and you should see that newview recognizes the movement.
tab is the Button tab. I use the Center
without Return for aiming when firing. Choose a button
for this. I use Button 3 on my stick so i will use it as an example.
Highlight Center without Return and in the top
section to the right, go ahead and hit Clear.
That clears out any previous settings if there is any. Select Joystick
1 and in the drop down box, choose 3. At the bottom, hit
Save INI file.
Additional Settings tab...raise start speed
to 6 and end speed to 30 and hit Apply.
the Additional Settings tab, you will see three
tabs... go to Miscellaneous tab. Make sure that
Enable Mouse Control and Bind View to Joystick
on Startup are both unchecked. Hit Apply.
ahead and close newview amking sure all settings were saved.
to fix IL2 controls so they do not clash with newview. Under Controls
remove all Pan and Snap
view hatswitch assignments. What I do is use the mouse right click
since it is not assigned by default in IL2. If you assign everything
to the right mouse button the previous assignment will be removed.
Again... remove all hatswitch assignments in IL2 the game.
should be it... go fly and enjoy!
