===============================================================
A. PROBLEM SOLVING
===============================================================
1. View panning up
Remove the line JOY1_HATUP=CAM_ROTATE_UP from the f18keys.ini file. The change must be made for each mapping that is used in-game.

2. CTD upon exiting mission
This may be the result of a "bloated pilot file". Occasionally a pilot file can increase grossly in size, from 40-70KB to over 1MB. If this pilot flies in a mission, not just as a human but as any member of any flight, then the mission may CTD after the debrief. Although you can avoid using this pilot, it can be difficult to police or remember, so the recommended solution is to delete the pilot file.

FAQ for graphics issues

4. Crash to desktop when pressing the PB (pre-briefed) button on the HARM MDI page.
- Click on your Start button.
- Select "Run..."
- Type "regedit" and press enter.
- Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Jane's Combat Simulations\F18\Config
- Select the entry "AvionicSaveData" and press the Delete key.
- Press the "Yes" button.
- Close the registry editor.
- Start the sim and reprogram your AGARM program settings if you wish.

5. Nonfunctioning keyboard commands for TDC pushbuttons 7, 8, 11, and 12
These buttons do not work when the UFC is in CNI mode. Switch the UFC to MDI mode.

6. Backing up and Re-flying Campaign Missions
- Fly a campaign mission.
- Exit the sim and navigate to /FA-18/Resource.
- Sort the files according to "Modified".
- Select all of the files that were modified at the time you exited the campaign mission and copy them.
- Paste the files into a backup folder.
- If you wish to restore your campaign to this point, copy the files from the backup folder and overwrite the files in /FA-18/Resource.
