Hi Everyone, I am a newcomer to flightsim. I am using Vista and keyboard controls. Since installing Acceleration, I have encountered a problem. To scroll through views, I use w. Now, I am unable to see the clear screen (no panel view). It's OK looking straight ahead, but left, right or backwards continues to be blocked/obscured by the aircraft. Can anyone suggest a solution please? Thanks Mikey88

A keyboard reference is available by pressing Shift F10 enough times till you get to the appropriate page on the little 'kneeboard' window. The "S" key is normally used for switching view modes and "a" for cycling through the camera positions for the mode you're in. (If you're unlucky enough to get a faulty Saitek Pro Flight Yoke it will switch views for you on a random basis -big cheesy grin-) I remember coming to FSX from ealier editions and having similar confusion. That "w" key assignment was used way back in the Sublogic days of FS as I recall. Ahhhh...the vintage years of flight simulation when everything was held together by wires (wireframe). Shift F10, the kneeboard is your friend. /You have control
