You adjust the magnetic compass heading (as indicated on the backup course indicator, right side of front panel) until it matches the gyrocompass heading (as indicated on the ring on the Central Indicator, surrounding the radar display).

No don’t touch it, the previous pilot has already set the correct declination.

Will this be changed and/or will the knob be animated?

Do you want me to set a incorrect deviation at mission start? I think it wouldn’t be very realistic as the declination changes very slowly and most of the times the machine wouldn’t be just ferried from a far-away airbase (with a different declination).

Not really, I was more wondering whether something about the implementation would change (such as the knob being animated) so people don't get confused by it again.

We only want the knob animated, we're fine with the previous pilot leaving the aircraft properly set (so kind!)

Yes, I would appreaciate this. That's how you guys did it in the Tomcat, so why not here?

But yeah, it would be great if the knob would actually work properly in the first place (animations, usable with keybinds, usable with mouse).
