AV-8B N/A Harrier Zoom Problem


Recommended Posts

Greetings pilots.


I'm new to DCS and the lovely Harrier.

I have found that I cannot fire my weapons when I am in zoom. :wassat: I have it, whether I use the standard buttons or an axis on my stick. Has anyone else noticed the same thing?


Is that wanted or a bug?

I'm grateful for any clarification.

It might be because of how you activate zoom.


I've fired --guns especially-- hundreds of times in zoom without issue.


I have a Thrustmaster Warthog Throttle & Stick. I use the throttle <thumb-hat-forward> for VR-Zoom (forward = zoom, release = return to non-zoomed). When I was using TrackIR it was about the same.


If you use something like the <pinky-button> or <paddle> as a modifier and then use something like <paddle><thumb-hat-forward> for zoom, then when you press the trigger while zoomed, your controller is actually sending <paddle><trigger>, which is not fire the gun.


BTW, there's an own AV-8B-NA Harrier subforum above for specific Harrier questions like this one ;)
