I'm beginning to think that I may invest in a TrackIR Pro myself. Does it function only with VC mode, or also with 2D mode?

I was only guessing when I wrote that but I think Frank is right with the
FS9.cfg file line.

However, if you do have PAN_IN_COCKPIT_MODE=1 set then this would be a
universal setting for all aircraft.

I might turn mine off now as I don't really need it any more - the TrackIR
Pro is so good that I'm mostly operating in VC mode since installing
it.(shock, horror) It just makes life so much easier.

There may indeed be a misunderstanding, John, but it's probably my inadequate description of the problem!

Using the RealAir C172 in FS2004, 2D mode, I tried using the hat switch
to snatch a glance to left and right - as is my practice with FS2002.
Instead of getting a quick view through the side windows, no instrument
panel, which reverts to normal forward view with instruments when I
released the hat switch, the whole 'windshield' 2D view complete with
instruments 'scrolled' to the side - so that I ended up seeing lateral
scenery as if through the windshield.  This view sticks when I release
the hat switch, and I either have to scroll back to the proper position
for forward view or try to remember what the keyboard command is to
achieve this.  Now whether I should start tinkering with the FS9
panel.cfg for the RealAir C172 is debatable ...
