View Full Version : Gun fire
04-30-2010, 01:39 PM
Hey, I've been having some trouble with the machine guns and cannons firing properly. I have been playing in simulator mode and whenever i fire the bullets cross right in front of my nose, the right guns fire sharply to the left and the left guns to the right, instead of following the cross hairs. Can anyone help?

The cross hair is only a guide, not a fps sight.. I think your seeing the convergence/divergence effect.

no i think there is something actually wrong, because when change to and external view and check the fire it crosses about a foot in front of my nose. When i have a bandit in my sights and its wingtips are at both ends of the sight i cant hit it. the bullets fire at to much of an angle.
Try changing your "Guns Targeting Distance" setting and set it around 300m. Test it until you find a distance that you feel comfortable with.
Keep in mind that the lower the number is the closer the bullets will cross in front of your plane's nose, so don't set it to anything lower than 200m unless you plan very close plane to plane attacks.
The option is the Options\General window.

thanks, that worked. For whatever reason it was set to 50.

This was bugging the hell out of me too until I figured out where to fix it. The default 50m convergence is way too close for even early WW1 style dog-fighting and just straight up suicide against bombers.
