The release of BoB2 WoV has just let me appreciate this IL2 series even more. It is the best $100+ I spent on software.

Anyway maybe somebody can help me with this. I dont know if it is a bug or what, but my gunsight circle on German aircraft is not visible. I mean it is visible, but only the right side of it. Cener and left side come into view only when i am sideslipping to the left.

The cockpits are realistic by having the gunsight offset to right as they were in real aircraft. But how can we aim accurately when we cannot see the centre aiming dot?

Somebody please help.....

shift + f1

This is the key for "gunsight view" shifts your head a little to the right or left so you can use the ReVi http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Now your gunnery is going to be exceptional that's for sure. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Also be sure to take a look at the manual that is located in your root IL-2 folder. It is .PDF file, you will need Adobe Reader (http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html) in order to view it properly.
