When first looking at it through periscope you have to make sure the black horizontal line at the periscope view is exactly at the waterline of the ship.. Then you press the stadimeter to bring up the mirrorimage.
And of course - imoportant to choose the correct ship.
The mirror image should "touch" the top of the original periscope view image - that means top of the mast.
thanks for the reply, but how do you get the line, as your pscope is bobbing up and down.
so you don't bring the image right down over the top of the original one? I thought that's what I saw in the Attack video. So the bottom of the image you bring down should only touch the top of the originals masts, not come all the way down.
The important thing is that in order to calculate distance you first choose the ship class. The ship has a certain height - and it differs from the different ship classes. You have to put other one on top. That is because it is a way to calculate the mast height of the ship from a distance.
Look again in the video - checked. he puts it on top!
I saw that he didn't put the horizontal line exactly at waterline. Put you have to put it on top so it touches the mast of the ship. -sorry about that - my mistake
When this is entered the system will come up with a distance based on the ship in periscope view and the height of the mast of that particular ship class.
Yeah. I figured there was a problem there, ive been wining ever since... Can`t help it..
Even the school is hard as it is now. I tried Battle of midway and just fired a huge spread with all tubes, sunk a carrier of which I wasnt even aiming at :P And best thing is I hit it with all torps I fired within the first 2 mins of the game :P
I just hope the Chronometer bug is fixed relatively quick. Got so much cool ideas to test out.
Pick up a good method of calculating AOB. After that maybe figure out some good spread shooting techniques, then all the other methods like calculating a convoys heading and speed, then make an intercept course of exactly 90 degrees starboard of the convoy.
Feels like I am waiting for the game, when I in reality already have it :P
