One thing I've been sorely hoping would be added is a dedicated gun camera. I know the track recorder and viewer is availible, but when you just want to go back and study your shooting, it's really cumbersome to constantly record / stop / rewind / position / playback each sortie.

Pretty simple, really--a togglable system that, when set to 'armed' and you fire, spits out low-res tracks or .mpgs (or a choice between the two!) with the view pre-positioned? Started when you pulled the trigger, stopped after a user-set length of time has passed after the last shot.

I'd *love* it, and I KNOW lots of other people here would too.

Stenciled on the side of my Dora:

"Lasst das H√¬∂llentor √¬∂ffen, es friert hier oben!"
("Leave the gates to Hell open, it's FREEZING up here!")

Use tyhe track in narrow view and you get the gun camera. But it is color.
If you like to see it in Black and white , then you need to replace intro by this track (rename track in the name of intro, like original).
