Something unusual happened today.
Whilst flying a Zero I suddenly noticed the ring and bead gunsight was in the upright position!It stayed there until I was shot down. It normally flops to one side at mission start.A cat had been in the vicinity of the keyboard just prior to me noticing the sight and so I spent the next 45 minutes trying to replicate the cats success in operating the sight by pressing every key combination I could think of. No Joy!
Anyone know how to operate the ring and bead sight? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

try the key you have mapped for toggle reticle dimmer.the key card says german aircraft only but this also opened the cover for a jap bombsight.

The same thing happened to me. I couldn't figure out what I did to activate it either.

I have always wanted to use the ring and bead ever since we got a zero....wish the ring and bead sights in ALL ac types could be used

would also be nice if we had random gunsight reticle bulb failures, as happened so often IRL, that would justify its use

and DOGTAIL, try smearing your keyboard with tuna and catnip, that may help lol

It happened to me as well, and I don't even use the keyboard (CH Pro throttle, Fighterstick an' Pedals).

So whaterver it is cats or other furry animals have got nothing at all to do with it.

I've got proof i tell ya! happened after i had been pummeled with some fire, maybe it was replacing the broken gunsite, which was not actually broken but should have been?

That's likely.

I noticed in AEP that the ring-and-bead gunsight would drop down from the vertical when the game loads.

If your gunsight is damaged or destroyed while flying the Zeke, the ring and bead sight flips up to replace it.
