Gaming Mouse? Help!

  • I got a frozen screen in FS2 and smoke came out of my wired (mouse-socket) red light mouse. I think I'd be better off going for a USB mouse replacement.

    Do gaming mice work properly in FS2? I have an ordinary 2D display and my interests are principally navigation and using the instrument panel equipment. Another eight or so instant access switches would be desirable.

    I'd be grateful for any advice and pointers as I want my FS2 working again ASAP.

    Thanks in Advance!

  • That is actually a good idea. Have never thought about assigning my mouse buttons to something.

    I just tried it and assigned my mouse X buttons successfully in aerofly and I can confirm that they work for switching camera views for example.
