Cannot look around in cockpit view in X3:AP

Post by apzjxkmaam » Tue, 25. Oct 16, 13:16

I can use the numpad to look around in external and target view modes but not in cockpit view.

In X3:TC, I could look around by using the numpad.

But, I can't do it in X3:AP.

I cleaninstalled x3, but it didn't solved.

Suggestions?

I know I should post this in tech suppport but, I think it takes some time to be permitted to post there so I posted here first.

No, you can post there straight away. I've moved your thread over for you.

It works OK for me in fully-updated vanilla X3AP, both with and without keypad Num Lock on.

Have you installed any mods (especially cockpit ones) and have you tried it in a different ship type? Some ship models allow very limited cockpit view angles.

Have you checked your in-game control key bindings to see if you moved the look around controls in your X3AP profile?

Yes.
I deleted whole file and reinstalled x3:AP and TC, removed registry of egosoft.
And the situation didn't changed.
The same argon elite in TC, I can look around in cockpit using numpad.
But, not in AP. The camera doesn't respond at all.

I finally found out what was wrong.
X3:AP supports headtracking.

But, It somehow receives the signals of facetracknoIR in high priority and overrides every view controls in cockpit.

Therefore, anyone installed facetracknoIR or freetrack will suffer this problem even if they're not executing facetracknoIR program while playing.

Uninstalling facetracknoIR worked me fine that I can now use trackIR or numpad to look around.

No other games causing problem like this so, I think this should be fixed.

Good to know and we will pass this information on to the devs. This really illustrates why we ask for hardware, software and system details right at the start of Tech Sp request threads. :wink:

Hey guys, problem is still here!
In X3:AP you can't look around with POV hat or num keys until you don't put FreeTrackClient.dll into game directory.
Many people even think that this feature is absent in game.
Fix it already!

X3:TC works fine.
