Is there even a "look up" view on the hat switch in Wowp ??

In other (read real) sims you can look up through the cockpit roof to see where your target is, but here you would have to use the mouse for camera view.

There is a 'snap to target' but that only works for a target that has been in your sights, not planes you're following.

 

No, not on the hat by default.  The hat switch normally is set to look 8 directions in the horizontal plane (forward, ,forward-left, left, aft-left, aft ....r) but leaves you on your own to assign a key (or use the keypad defaul "5" for up) for up and down - at least on the Logitech Extreme Pro as it only rocks toward the eight directions.

 

I often use the hat switch to momentarily check my 6, which is quite useful but will also use the other views to see if a human or bot is approaching (alt-view).

 

Using the mouse to "slew" the viewpoint/steer-to point is disabled in joystick mode.

I use a mouse but use Target Closest Enemy and then Snap to Target. 

 

With Target Closest Enemy, they don’t have to be in your sights. Those 2 keys get a lot of action in a fur ball.

lf you right click (hold) the mouse you can view with the mouse  with a joystick as main control.

The forward hat switch is default to...:) "forward". You can map it to either up or down but you stilll have to look through the plane.

 

I use closest enemy and target center on my thumb buttons. There is also "target dangerous" never tried that one...??? Anyone know what that does?

That's a good idea.  Originally thought I needed the "front" hat position to restore the forward view but it seems to do that when not commanding anything else. 

 

Looking thru the plane is a pain.  None of the other views do that, correct?  Suspect this is a "feature" that someone thought would help orient the pilot. 

 

12 battles last night without a joystick incident - first time in quite a while.   I was apparently one of the last to encounter the problem (and complain about it on the forum).  Are there any joystick users that have not been affected by it yet?  What make/model do you use?

Don't have enough hands :).  Right hand on the joystick, left hand on the joystick buttons for flaps, communcations, etc.  I can't imagine how awkward it would feel to mouse with the left hand and don't dare don't take my right hand off the joystick.

That's what HOTAS is for.  Plus rudder pedals.
