HOW do i fly? please help

guest Guest

Im playing CFS3 and im trying to fly with the keyboard, the turning and the rudder and everything is so god damn delayed its impossible to do any manuvers , how do I fly good. There is no way a real plane handles this sluggishly and wins a war.

I never tried CFS3, but I did have the original CFS and CFS2. To be honest about them I wasn't impressed with either one of them and gave them to my son to play with. He isn't too fond of them either.

I have seen people who claim to be able to fly OK with the keyboard, but I'm not one of them. In my opinion you need at least a cheap stick to be able to fly, and you can get a joy stick with twist handle (for rudder control) for $30 or less.

WarHawk states the obvious... you need a joy stick. It's a fact, without a joy stick -- no joy.

But you too, are stating the obvious:

...or in other words: There is no way a real plane wins a war by being flown with a keyboard ➡ Idea

I agree, use a joy stick......where have I heard that before??????

It sounds like you may be suffering from low frame rate also. Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3 is very demanding on a computer system. Unless you have a good processor and video card, the game(yes, it is a game) is very difficult to control. What are the specifications of your system? 🙂
Scroll down to the bottom of the page for system requirements.

I would recommend a minimum of a 2 GHz processor, 128 MB video card and 512 MB RAM.

I don't have a joystick, but use a mouse for cfs 1 and 2, which works fine.

Enjoy the mouse but I would get a joy stick....good luck.
