Prepar3d V5 from Lockheed Martin

This is not a serious issue but I'm posting simply as a heads up.
Prepar3d V5 from Lockheed Martin.
With XMouse Button Control active it is not possible to use the mouse wheel to "turn" knobs.
When I disable XMouse Button Control, even after P3D has launched, the "turn" of knobs works.

Also, many thanks for a really useful program!

Thank You.

Actually that's not surprising. XMBC redirects the wheel messages to the window under the cursor by default and I'm not surprised this happens.
I don't have prepar3d (just X-Plane 11 and MS FS 2020 Alpha 4 - but I'm not allowed to talk bout that :lol:) I'll check in there but of course it will be different.

However, you should be able to "fix" this by setting up a profile for Prepare3D (the exe) and in that profile, turn ON the option setting "Disable scroll window under cursor"

Thanks for that advice.
X-Plane 11 and MSFS Alpha 4 don't have that problem!
Take Care!

On another note, how does Prepar3D compare in your opinion? Ive never really got into that one - I know it originated from the old MSFS but how it is graphically and physically (flight modelwise) these days?

I use X-Plane mostly for work (developing plugins for it for visualising real recorded flight data in the sim) so for that purpose, the graphics are more important than the model (which I'm overriding anyway!). Loving flyig around in X-Plane in VR mode right now but cant wait for MSFS2020 to support VR mode as its visually another level in comparison - although I hope with 11.50 its opening that up for future graphic improvements.
