Maybe its a stupid question, but when you ever fired a gun, you find it is not.
when i look through my gun sight to shoot at a plane, what is the combatdistance of that gunsight? At what range is it adjusted, since the bullets fly realistic, you must know where to aim at 100 meters or 500 meters or any other distance.
Otherwhise you shoot over your target or under your target.
Its also helpful when you strafing ground targets, so you won't waste so much ammo that hits the ground in front of the target./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
OW another one here. I fly mostly offline,but when i fly online i have trouble in taking off, feels like the plane has much more torque, iow im al over the airfield,/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif the same settings in offline and i can take of perfect. Is this caused by lag? or is it something else? Ps my connection is fast, i'm behand a firewall and a virusscanner.
About onlinelandings i don't have to worry, i have two ways to land, got shot down /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif or just dart into the lawn /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif coused by lag or that funny XP pro /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif (hit a wrong key and you got a different screen not FB)/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-mad.gif

your gunsight will be accurate for whatever distance you set your guns convergence at - i think - ie if it's set to 500 meters then when a targetis 500 meters away you should hit it bang on if it is in the centre of the sight.

as for online i have never noticed this and cannot offer an explanation

Try turning the firewall off when online.
It may help.

If i remember correctly the "convergence" is where the bullets cross eachother (left to right). I think he's asking about the sight markings. As in, if the target is 1000m away and my sight is converged at 1000m, theyre still going to fly below the target.

I noticed in the manual something about adjusting the sight, and on the russian planes there is a knob that looks like it indicates the distance. I think this is the answer youre looking for... (sorry still a newb to this game)
