EVO's were pretty hard to find a few months ago. Dont know now. The word was that they were so good they were being used in all kinds of industrial/military applications. I watched a show about some kind of robotic machine used in the army and sure enough the guy was using the EVO.
You can set JoyToKey work without pressing the mouse look key. That tutorial explains how it's possible with two instances running, the other simulates pressing 'shift' and the other moving the mouse, while POV is moved. The minimal amount of memory the program uses shouldnt be a problem
I've yet to try that myself, but it should work as "expected", when POV button is released, it bounces back to forward view. Experimenting with the different values may be a good idea too, since I find 100 or even 40 too sensitive
It works, Ive tried it.

Oooh, gotta try that.
I dont mind having to still press the mouse-look button. Because when i let go, i know i have control over the aircraft again. If your POV ever sticks, even a little, it will stick in look mode. And it may cause you to crash unable to control the plane. Plus i like how it snaps the view back to perfectly dead center :) If i wasnt able to program this easily with my joysticks software, i would use joy2key for sure. So for all those who cant, this will allow you to use your hat-switch. You just need to figure out how to set it up, the instructions suck. :p
I've been using TrackIR for the Sturmovik series for the last couple of years, and it's a whole new ball game. Makes you feel like you're actually in the cockpit.
Most all the "full realism" servers don't allow any padlock or external views, so the program is a godsend compared to the hatswitch.
I know at least one simmer who used to tape a small trackball to his joystick, said it worked fairly well.

Meh perhaps the second post in this thread might help shed light on this :deal:
Yeah TrackIR would be great to have, its rather pricey though. 179$ U.S. plus taxes and shipping. Atleast thats the price on the website i found for it. Ive never seen TrackIR in a store anywhere.
Thanks for letting me know about software called joy2key. I didn't know it exist. :)
This program is for setting mouse moves to joystick button thingies? I'm a keyboard pilot and I wish I could use it for the Numpads to look around. Or perhaps the keyboard arrows would be better.
