Is there anything on the Internet that explains what all of the control keys do? For instance, I do not know what FOV 85 does? What does Gunsight View do?

Thanks

Apparently, your copy of the game did not come with the Control Menu card. There is a copy of it on one of your game disks, along with the manuals, in .pdf format.

FOV stands for Field of View, so FOV85 gives you an 85 degree field of vision. Gunsight view gives you a magnified view of whatever you have in the gunsight.

Best way to learn all this is to print out the menu card and go into one of the single missions and just play with the various buttons and key commands before taking off (you won't achieve a high score on that particular mission, but Michael Jordan didn't dunk the first time he picked up a basketball either).

It's not realy explained anywhere http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif but as you play the game / fly the simulator (your choise) it will dawn on you...

It could help to look at the no. 2 cd of FB - that has a digital scan of the Control Menu card http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
It shows most of the dials in diff planes too http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
And it's got the extended manual on it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
