[Flightgear-devel] [PATCH] switching views (trivial)

2003-02-03 Thread Geoff Reidy
Hi all, I always wanted to be able to hit shift v to be able to cycle through views the other way. That way you can toggle between 2 views without having to go through them all, which can be uncomfortable if you're about to run into a mountain or something. It looked like the code was all

[Flightgear-devel] DAFIFT progress

Okay, so I have FG working with the DAFIFT NAV and WPT data (replaces default.fix and default.nav). Now, I need some advice: - What things to test that may have broken. I've extended 'testnavs' quite a bit and everything in there works, but this is a minute sample compared to what's out there.
