Hi!

I have problem... I can't see crosshair in any german plane! It's to much on the left side. How to get it in the center?

You need to bind a key to "Toggle Gunsight", and then of course press it in game to switch to the gunsight view.

Happy flying!

Default is SHIFT + F1 - this should do it even if you haven't set up a special key

SHIFT + F1 changes camera... I want view from cockpit...

Maybe it's handy to read the key reference card that came with the game.

Ice-fire lets make this a usefull topic so i dont need to start a new one. The Tempest should have a gyroaim just like the spitfire, yes? i got a movie called tempest at war, and a spitfire pilot says the tempest aim was better becouse you didnt have to think of the wings and directions, or something. whats you thought?

skabbe, don't be an ***. Go start your own topic. Maybe if these boards had either a FAQ or a functioning search feature questions like this wouldn't come up constantly. What's the best way to start a FAQ?

domenlovrec, I had forgotten the default key (I use a HOTAS and forget the key commands) - it should be SHIFT + F1. If that doesn't work, take a look at your control settings - I believe the command you are looking for is called "Toggle Gunsight" as I previously mentioned.

Good luck!

here is the trouble, then

If your
shift+F1
keystroke changes cameras, that means you custom bound those keys to do that

The default setting for gunsight view is Shift+F1, without a doubt. You have made the control for that feature nothing, because you took it away from the 'toggle gunsight' function, and made it change cameras

If you refer to your command reference card, you will plainly see that Shift+F1 toggles the gunsight, as a default control. You'll need to find another set of keystrokes for that function, or re-assign the one you have customised, and then re-assign Shift+F1 to 'toggle gunsight'

In flight, press 'esc', and select 'controls', then check your keystroke bindings

Maybe there should be a sticky pinned to the top of this board titled: "The Five Most Frequently Asked Questions, Answered Here."

In one easy shot new players could read about the mysterious Luftwaffe gunsight toggle; learn how to raise the Wildcat/I-16's landing gear; learn how to remove chocks to take off from a carrier; learn how to use the K-11 gunsight; and learn what the "High Gore" setting really means.

In addition, there are several topics that could be added:
1. What is the patching order for (pick a version of the sim)?
2. Do I need IL-2 to run FB, AEP, or PF?
3. Is PF an add-on or standalone?
4. Do I need AEP if I have FB and I want PF?
5. What is BoB?
6. What add-ons are available?
7. How do I add more flyable planes?

I dunno, its just a thought seeing as how we see the same questions over and over ...

The control you want is labelled Toggle Gunsight in the controls screen, NOT Gunsight View or No Cockpit

It's good to fly with the He 111 with the Shift F1 view off!

Oops, sorry for laughing. I thought you were trolling and could call up the view you wanted, I just noticed it's from the training section.

Okay, at your IL2 start up screen go to Controls, look down the list until you find Toggle Gunsight. Whatever key it says to press there is the one to press to centre your gunsight. If there's no key assigned to that command choose one. It's a useful function to have 'cause it also gives you (limited) movement of the pilots head in some other 'planes, very handy for seeing around the cockpit bars.

Pit off is Ctrl F1, not Shift F1.

And Shift F1 tightens every gunsight, not just the German planes. (P-47D-10 good example) It's the differnce between flying around, looking for bandits, and holding your head steady to aim with the gunsight. Try any plane, and manever with it toggled on and off. You'll see the difference. Hope this helps, good luck and

hey Bierhund! i really hope you read this, when i saw this thread and saw your answer i said to my self, this is a really good forum. because its nothing more annoying to see people spending time baching the questions insted of helping like you did, because its quite hard to find things when you try to searsh for answers. i was a bit clumsy, but i didnt want to start a smal thread for just that question. sorry. but i guess i have to start a new one then...

Interesting question.

To my knowledge, no the Tempest V did not have a gyro gunsight. But...it did have the unique feature of projecting the gunsight onto the windscreen itself so there are no bulky gunsights in the way to make aim difficult.

I think it's somewhat like the Corsair Mark IV for instance.

VW-IceFire

Here we go: http://www.429sqn.ca/acmgs.htm

Tempest V uses a Mark III reflector sight. As I said, it projects the sight onto the windscreen. Apparently just a dot and a graticle. Seems better suited for the ground attack and rocket firing options than specifically air combat - keep in mind that the Tempest was a tactical fighter so it would be call on for dual duty. I think it'll be just fine without the gyro.

Spitfire XIV will have one.

Set key for toggle gunsight. Hit it. Then you want to hit key for gunsight view. Thats it. Not that complicated.

Baching? What I find annoying is this person is arrogant enough to try to make us look stupid for suggesting Shift-F1.
