So, I have Arma 3 up and running in my simpit and have been just LOVING all of the rotary wing flying I've been able to do! I use Gadroc's amazing Helios touch screen software as part of my pit, and it really does make flying some of the more complicated aircraft a lot easier, allowing me to put switch commands as buttons on the touch screen rather than remembering which key combinations do what, especially when trying to hover, sling load cargo, etc. I use it successfully in DCS, IL-2 series, FSX, etc with no issues. My issue is (okay... this particular issue... I have lots! ) is that when using Helios, every time I use the touch screen, it shifts my view and issues the 'fire/hold fire' command in addition to generating the programmed keystroke. I use IR tracker, so having my view all of a sudden get shifted around is annoying. I've double checked calibration of the touch screen to ensure it is only registering on that screen, and that Helios is only sending the single intended keystroke, so something else is going on... I just can't figure out what. Example: I have two simple push buttons set up on the screen for sling loading... ctrl-b for the sling load assistant, and b for attaching/detaching the rope. When I touch the sling load assistant button, Helios does send ctrl-b to the game as the sling load assistant opens in game, but also my view spins around to a random location AND my pilot says 'Fire' or 'Cease Fire' depending on what command was given last. So for some reason, it is sensing the ctrl-b command, plus a left mouse click and a mouse movement?? I could understand if the touch screen was my primary monitor, but for some reason ARMA is sensing the touch on the secondary touch screen even though it doesn't 'own' that secondary monitor. Being that Helios is working fine in all of my other sims, I'm thinking it is something to do with ARMA. If anyone else is using Helios successfully please clue me in to the setup secret so I can stop this ever-so-frustrating issue. Thanks! Dud
