Hello fellow Sturmovikers!

A few months ago, I bought the saitek X45 joystick and ive been happily flying to my death over and over using the ingame key mapping. A few days ago, I read a post talking about how some people use the little thumb mouse...aka "magic mouse" on the side of the joystick to look around the cockpit instead of the hat switch. I'de love to be able to utilize this feature because the hat switch seems very impresice to me, and the regular hand mouse is to far away to reach for in the heat of a dogfight. I was just wondering if anyone could explain how I can go about setting this up.

If your using the Saitek drivers, just open the profile manager, and choose the hat that you want to have as the mouse. Then click the little arrow and select "Mouse" for that hat.

I have a Saitek profile for download at my webpage, you can use if you need any starting points for customizing your own profile.
