Precision Mode

Post by dancd » Mon Feb 13, 2006 3:10 am

Doing a bit of Hotkey switching. Bo problems with Centering or Pause which both have a visual active indication. By what means is one
aware that Precision Mode is active? If there is an obvious change OK. But so far I cannot observe a recognizable change when I use the hotkey.

Dont know if you found this bit in the manual Dan but here you are.

Precision
The Precision Hotkey enables Precision mode which temporarily makes the view steadier by increasing the amount of smoothing that is used, when Precision mode is disabled again the smoothing returns to the normal amount for the profile. This is commonly used in combat flight simulators when tracking an enemy in your sights to keep the view as stable as possible.

You should be able to see the effect in the preview window in the profile edit window. Just moves a little smoother.

Thanks for the comments Toady, yes I have read the manual many times to find an answer to my question, however I shall be looking for the slight change in effect when applied.

Hello Toady,
Your replys were very much appreciated and following your suggestion I can now detect a change. I was also interested in the comment made by Rick that Precision Mode would be most evident in sims
like CFS when zooming in.
