Hi sorry if these are FAQs but I can't seem to get the search feature on this forum working.

Is there any way to make the compass on the yak visible?

Also, it seems that getting hit by machine guns causes my guns to jam even when I'm not firing. I would expect this to be caused by overheating or firing under high G load? Is there any way to disable gun jams?

Thanks!

There is no way to unjam guns, and it only seems to happen when hit by enemy (or friendly) fire. As far as I know, nothing else causes jams.

Can't help you with the Yak question though.

Well...technically your gun will jam when a bullet or ten have blown the control mechanism or the barrel to bits http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

The compass is porked on the Yaks. That's why most online wars leave the speedbar on. You can put the Yak in a steep dive to see the compass for a split second, but that's no way to fly.

The gun jamming is because it's being hit.Not getting hit is the only answer out of that one.

So far my last three missions in a row I have spent ten minutes flying out, get a few pings on me and my guns jam, then spend 10 minutes flying back. This aspect of the damage model seems a little overdone compared to the WW2 pilot biographies I've read or maybe I've just been unlucky. Anyways I guess there's no way to turn it off?

Don't do any headons. That seems to knock them out the quickest.

It just seems strange to me that I read so often of engines getting knocked out or pilots getting wounded, or fuel or oil or coolant leaks or even fires but I can't remember ever reading about someone having their guns shot out although I'm sure it must have happened.

Thanks for your help.
