I know right! I'm doing the same thing.

Hi Miles,

This is a long shot, and I believe it is not possible as of yet (please correct me if I’m wrong): Would it be possible in the future to add two pointers so as to use both hands simultaneously on two buttons/knobs in cockpit? I.e. let go of the HOTAS and quickly tune two things at once in the cockpit?

Miles can correct me if I’m wrong but PointCTRL is just a mouse as far as the computer is concerned. The DCS UI for clickable cockpit is just a single mouse cursor, so that’s the current limit. If PointCTRL ends up getting its own discrete support as a interface and not just as a mouse then it might be possible, although I’d argue what the advantage would be as I can’t really see a need for interfacing with two things at the same time.

There’s only one instance I can think of... the FCS bit on the Hornet. I have a HOTAS switch set for that right now.

Yep, FCS in the Hornet is the first instance I can think of, but it would be nice to be able to use two hands on the UFC to type quicker, or one on the UFC and the other cycling through OSBs, say for example when setting up profiles in the A-10C. Or configure gears, lights, flaps etc whilst at the same time configuring the radio and TACAN on the approach. Yeah you guessed it, I'm good at using both hands for multitasking.

That said, I was expecting this not to be possible due to the regular mouse interface in DCS, but one can only hope of this changing in the future! Thanks anyway Dino, much appreciated that you share your inputs.
