Wrt the switches sometimes not clicking unless you scroll - think it may be same issue I had when first started - screen resolution in settings did not match my 'actual' screen resolution. I also found ticking the 'fullscreen' box in settings whacked a fair few FPS up.That's was certainly true. Having some issues with DCS. Dug out a HOTAS throttle and stick set I'd received as a gift some time back and plugged them in. Thought that would be me fixed on the controls side of things...oops! Anyhow, fired up the viper and discovered this sim thing needs some adjustment.
I have to admit the cockpit representation is good but some lights are about 1 pixel in size. Lowered the seat and some are now 2 pixels in size. Okay I can live with it just. Clearly need to do something about the screen. Some of the checks, post startup, are a bit tricky. I have to look to the side with the mouse to manipulate a switch but can't look at the eyebrow panel at the same time to see the results. One or two of the switches seem to miss the momentary function for self testing and I haven't worked out how to turn a knob with the turny icon. A few of the MFD screens seem to have been lost in delivery.
The main hat on the stick is associated with moving round the cockpit which begs the question as to where the trim function is. Probably need to learn some code or other for that. Some of the dials are also hidden behind the stick. Normally you'd just lean a bit and it would be ok. EPU fuel gauge is well hidden. Still have to find out if I can shout at the ground crew for pulling final pins and closing up.
Still, doesn't do to be too negative, mights well get this crate airborne, brakes off, bit of power, engage nose wheel steering and we're off.....nose wheel steering....engage....bollocks. Throttle isn't working either. Parks, gets out and decides to go back to the hotel.
Seems that switch and key assignment etc isn't automatic and my throttle isn't even visible. Looks like I have to RTFM on the sim itself before going up tidily up.
