When I play online it seems that auto bombing is not working (He 111)!? Is it me, or could it be that on some servers it is only posible to do manual bombing!?
Also, can someone point me to the precize bombing charts ...

Are you sure you have the auto bombsight key mapped and on?

Are you sure you have all the correct settings entered into the sight for manual bombing and are flying correctly?

Unless you provide a bit more about what you do and what doesn't happen, there could be many reasons why it isn't working.

Failing all that. Try manual bombing. It is easy to learn. You can become adequate in half an hour. And the only thing you need to adjust on the bombsight is the sight angle.

There are plenty of charts describing bomb release angles for manual bombing at a given height and speed.

(if you can fly a plane stright and true, you can bomb manually)

For manual bombing there is no other (better) utility than Bombisght Table 2

Created by our squadron memebers, it provides our lovely community with precise manual bombing data for more than two years. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

It is to be D/L'ed here (http://www.wtigers.org/dwne_1.htm)

Enjoy your bomber duty! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

It really is not that difficult. I was doing well after about 20 minutes with it online. Make sure you have level stabilizer mapped to a key.

Hitting targets with the Betty at 5000 to 6000 meters is a piece of cake.

I routinely do automatic high-level bombing in dogfight servers (Zeke vs Wildcat, GreaterGreen and the new Bomb-vt-Dedicated server) without problems (well, actually, only problem is that I get shot down often! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ).

The same setting, keys, etc. you use offline should work online without modifications.

About bombing charts, I found that using the "German" sight (not the "Russian" one) actually tracking the target gives much more accuracy than sticking to table values. Anyway some of my mates made a simplified bombsight table that can be found here:

I have now a new problem (not realy a problem) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
How can I obtain hi altitude in short time? It takes me a great deal of time to go up to 4000m +
That is why I get shoot down to often!

I usually circle the base until I have an alt I can live with before heading toward the target.
That way I have the cover of AA and any fighters who may spawn.
