Red crosshair, "no targets found", mousewheel zooms


Recommended Posts

I have a weird problem with my mouse in DCS flying the A10C


When I right click anything, a red crosshair appears in the middle of my screen.


When I left click the red crosshair goes away and I get the message "no targets found" in the top left of screen.


When I use the scroll wheel on appropriate controls (eg uncaging the SAI) the view zooms in and out instead of adjusting the cockpit control.


This obviously makes flying a bit difficult.


It is only happening on one particular mission, on one particular server. I have been able to fly this mission on this server previously. If, when I get the problem, I exit and go to my usual mutliplayer hangout it does not happen, everything works as it should.


Not sure if this is a bug, or a glitch in the mission. My guess is that it thinks I'm not in an A-10... maybe it thinks I'm ground commander or something? Having said that, when I left or right click on controls they DO toggle (although the cross and weird message show up).


Anyone have any idea what's going on here?

I had the same problem a few weeks ago on a multiplayer server. I don't think it was the particular mission on the server because I've never had problems on it before or since. The only way I found to fix this was to exit out of DCS and reopen.


I can confirm it wasn't an issue with the mouse as I also tried using my X52 mouse thing and a touch pad and nothing worked. It just seems like the cursor was stuck in the middle of the display but worked when I alt+tabbed to the desktop. I just kept going and managed to finish the mission without using my mouse :)


I don't think it was game mode because all of my A-10C mapped commands worked, I've never mapped any commands to the game mode and I would have noticed that.
