Recently my X-plane 10 3D cockpit stop working. It doesnt matter which aircraft I choose, I cant click anything in the 3D cockpit. Also only some of the animation work. For example, I have the Airfoil labs C172, and the throttle and mixture knob will move if I use my throttle quadrant, but I cant manipulate it with the mouse. Also the yoke animation doesn't show in the cockpit, but if I go outside the aircraft, I can see the animations of the flight controls working. I also tried the Jardesign Airbus, and its the same thing, the joystick moves, but I cant click any button or turn a knob with the mouse.

I'm currently using the steam version, and I already tried validating my files three times, and it didn't help.

Make sure your view is set to the 3d cockpit and not the 2d one by accident. Further troubleshooting help can be found here or through the Aerosoft forums.

My view is set to 3D view by default, I even double checked the rendering settings to make sure. I can look around in the 3D cockpit, I just can't click anything.

I think I figured where the problem is with the 3D cockpits. I tested the Airfoil labs C172 3D cockpit, and it still didn't work, so I loaded the default C172, and I was able to see the buttons and yoke move in the 3D cockpit. So I can confirm that 3D cockpits aren't working in payware airplanes. So I think a common plugin among the payware airplanes is the culprit. Can anyone help me figure out why I can't use 3D cockpits in payware airplanes?
