I have a problem that I do not know if it is with my computer or is a FB problem> I hate to admit it, but I do frequently get shot down. Not just winged, I mean completely dusted. When this happens My screen goes completely black, pauses a few seconds then returns with the image of my plane in a fire ball.

it was worse before they made that because you would be flying and your plane would top responding and it took me a sec to figure out my pilot was dead (i had to read it lol, reading hurts)

Death is only the beginning

There are a couple of psiible cause to this symptom:
1.The electicity at ur home went down
2.You accidentaly turn off your monitor
3.Your pilot get killed by the enemy. You need to press F2 keys for external to see your plane./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Once that happens, if you are on a server that allows external views you can switch to that to catch the last glimpse of your planes demise.

I don't really like the black thing tho. They just ought to make it black for a sec with a big message that you are dead and then switch it back on just so you could still see in those servers that dont allow external views.

it suck, I hope they add in a feature to disable it, especially in cockpit servers with no xternals people just hit refly right away and the plane disapears in the air.

When the screen goes black it means that you're dead!

Game over!

Is that so hard to understand?/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

This is one of those brilliant new ideas they put into FB. You can just see them getting all excited: "Yeah! Yeah, we'll make the screen turn black to show he's dead! Big realism, be sure!"

(To say nothing of the varying shades of red you get if you've been wounded. I thought at first it was going to say "Player has developed pinkeye." But I digress.)

Pretty dubious proposition philosophically if you ask me. I mean how does anybody KNOW everything goes black when you die? Judging from those clinical-death-experience stories there's at least as much reason to believe you see a blinding white light. (Not that I'm asking for that, I get enough eyestrain already.)

I think they should have taken it even farther. When you start a campaign you have to type in a full confession of everything you've done in your life and then if you get killed the program evaluates it and depending on the decision, either you see St. Peter and a couple of angels smiling and greeting you, or else Satan leering and beckoning you through a gate marked LASCIATE OGNI SPERANZA, VOI CH'ENTRATE.

It should also be able to read the rest of the contents of your hard drive and find out if you've been surfing those sites with the sinful pictures and figure that into your account.

Of course if you're flying VVS then you are presumably a good atheist so there's not much doubt which way you're going to go, is there? Black screen, ha! You should only be so lucky.

He may have blacked out Dave. /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

-- - He may have blacked out Dave

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. But I couldn't post that, because everybody said Pilot Kill, like, do I have a different version of FB 1.0 than yall's FB 1.0 ?
