Can I control roll and pitch by mouse in Aerofly FS4?

  • I don't have the game yet and I don't have game controller, but recently I discoverd on other games that mouse control is also nice to fly.

    Such as:

    • Mouse moves forward and back on table, means pitch down and up,
    • Mouse moves left and right, means roll left and right.
    • Use the whole screen as mouse control area.
    • keyboard controls power and yaw.

    Can I have these in Aerofly FS4?

  • With my FS4 on the Mac, it does not work to set up a mouse as a control device

  • Yes, in Windows it is possible to fly with mouse and keyboard if no joystick is connected.

    At the bottom right corner is a square icon you can grab with the mouse and use it like a joystick for pitch and roll.

    Also there is a slider on the left side for throttle and an icon for flaps.

    But ist is also possible to configure freely any keyboard-key for flaps, throttle and other stuff.

    I can´t imagine why it should be different in Mac-OS, but ok, maybe it is?!

    Grab anywhere else on the screen with the mouse is for look around.

    Works very well.

    Hope that helps.

    Greetings!

  • Of course it works that way on a Mac too. :)

    I understood that the mouse should be integrated and configured as a control device, and that doesn't work, at least for me on the Mac. :/
