    I recently installed this version of New View, & really like it ...except... It has a maddening way of not always functioning...I can play one mission or two or three & then on the next one it simply doesn't work with the hat... turn game off start again & chances are it will work..What's the problem & is there any solution??

    I have the same problem. I accidentally hit F1 once and that fixed it. So when I see it happen, I hit F1.

    There are several controls that can switch off NewView. Or some bits of what the program does. Check your configuration under buttons > assignments and make sure you know which keys are bound to what. Things like 'toggle view mode' 'urgear helmet emulation' 'bind joystick to views' and other controls will switch off or alternate the current NewView view mode.

    However the most useful suggestion, I think, would be to download and use NewView build 27. You can get it from:

    http://home.iprimus.com.au/djgwen/fb...v27english.zip - this version also includes the translated original helpfile by Jetstream100.

    The NewView 27 interface is a little clearer about how it displays the keybindings to things.

    I've been having the same problem but with version 27 and FB 1.21. At times the view tends to lock up when turning or climbing with the joystick movement enabled. I have also noticed slowdowns on longer online missions.

    I haven't nailed the cause yet, but for now I've switched back to the old version (26) of the DLL.

    Not 100% certain if it is NewView.

    This actually used to happen to me in NewView 25 but I haven't had it in 26 or 27. I don't know why that is.

    If you like give the options 'mouse control' and 'alternate mode for f2/f8' under the Additional Settings menu a try.
