Just an idea that crossed my mind. I think it would be pretty neat to see a track from the wings of a fighter as in real life. Maybe an option to record as a guncam or full ntrck. It would make for some awsome shots at times. What do you fellow community members think?

it would be nice if after each mission you could review your gun camera footage, and choose whether to keep any of it. i agree with this idea! would also increase the immersion factor.

You can turn the reticle off in nocockpit view. Isn't that like guncam?

Turning cockpit off is not what I mean. You couldnt do that in real life, or in full switch servers. But to get that black and white look like the IL2 movies, and just the footage of battle, similiar with recording when you want to.

Well, many of us refuse to fly offline and online in this manner. So, in my case at least, this no cockpit idea would not work at all http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Always wanted a guncam view. If we ever would get this,or even if we don't,at least have a Black And White switch so you can play records in black and white http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm not at home to test it. But I beleive you can record your track at any difficulty and then replay it with manual views to any view you want. The hit your quicksave button (has to be programed by you in controls screen) and record it without the reticle. I know you can record it again that way just not sure if you can get to the no reticle screen. I know you can get to any of the outside views, so go give it a try and let us know.

If you have a new ATI I found out you can just set the effect to black and white or antiquie and several other options then play the track and record it with fraps to get the effect on your avi file. Of course there are other programs you can get to do that too and they are the place to asked.

Pleased to of gotten ya on track so to speak http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

This would be a great idea.

Use the actual gun camera location on the wing of the plane in question and let the game review guncamera footage and save it if you want to, from the perspective of the gun camera (just like the real ones).

That'd be far in above of what you can do by just turning off the reticle.

Would be cool to be able to review my kills via the gun cam after a mission.
Not just watching a track, but the game recording a track from the perspective of the gun camera only when you press the trigger, and being able to view it in B&W like the real deal.

I'm drooling now... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif
