TrackBall Mouse issues with New Build

Postby SimForLife » Mon Jun 10, 2019 1:49 am

Hey Guys:

I'm having problems with my Kenningston Wireless trackball mouse, it has worked without any problems for the past 2x years with P3D & FSLabs but now it does not want to work properly after the download of the new P3DV4.5 Hotfix 1 build. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers, I've check the Kenningston website to see if there was an update but it's the same driver version 1.3.1. The issue I'm having is when I turn the setings knob on the FCU for instance altitude, or heading or speed it scrolls past 5K, then 10K, then 25K and I'm just scrolling the wheel one click. I've doubled checked the scroll settings in both windows 10 mouse settings and the trackball settings and still. I've tried so many things and can't seem to get it to scroll just one click at a time. When I uninstall the trackball driver and just use windows 10 mouse driver it works but I can't reverse the scrolling wheel to turn clockwise or counter-clockwise when turning the knobs to the right or left. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Try hitting Esc to stop the scrolling? Kind of sounds like the device is switching from point and click mode to scroll mode. Look to Kensington documentation for help. I doubt that it is anything in P3D but I'm not looking over your shoulder.

I found the Kensington products to be okay for my office desktop but not good enough for flight simulation. I found a trackball made in the USA that is of very high quality and I love it. The name of the company is Clearly Superior Technologies in El Cajon CA.

Ok Downscc: thanks for the response I'll give it a try and look into that other trackball company.
