A and D Rudder Lock

Hello,

 

Whilst using A and D I notice that quite often the rudder locks in the direction I am turning - I have to then press either A or D again to unlock.  Sticky keys are turned off, I have even moved the Q and E keys so I know I am not hitting those keys instead.  I have recently reinstalled the game from scratch to see if it goes away but it hasn't.  Any ideas?  Oddly, it used to do it on my main PC but seemingly stopped - this is my second, lower spec PC.  Both Windows 10.

Nah there are different sets of controls: one for steering and one for rudder lock. I have my A and D set for steering and I have Q and E set to rudder lock

if you are positive it is not hardware (i.e. used a different keyboard).

Then reset your customisations by:

a.  shut down client.

b. delete preferences.xml

c. restart client

d.  test things are working BEFORE making any changes to your settings.

I'll try a different keyboard - swap over the one from the PC that works so that's a good (and obvious I should have thought of that) suggestion.

 

So yes, it's the steering that is effected - it just locks if you steer for a period of time in one direction - so the behaviour I would almost expect with Q and E.

 

If still no good, I'll delete the xml file and see.

 

Thanks for the help :)
