Flying the new expansion online last night I could swear that the P-47 D-10 rolls a bit faster, is more stable at low speed and has more accurate guns now (vs. 1.22) Has anyone else noticed a change? Or I was just having a good night online?

Are you sure you're not thinking of the dream you had last night?

I think bullet trajectory has been extended for just about all. I'm certain that folks have had to adjust their convergences because anything less that 400=spray but 500 puts a needle of bullets at almost any useable range now.

Is that true? Have you tested it? Maybe that why I don't think the .50's are good on the P-51 are as effective as they should be. I have mine set to 200m. Does apply to the P-51, or are you just talking about the P-47?

Buzz,
If I can be allowed a brief "rant":

The P-47's guns have never been as effective as they "should" be. I believe this is due to greater dispersion designed into the Jugs armament in FB. Moreover, although I cannot "prove" it, I think it has something to do with the way the inboard .50's and outboard .50's must be assigned seperately in convergence and firing.

I don't think FB has ever handled planes with 8 wing guns well.

People complain about the 8 .303s in the Hurris that have them also- but most dismiss it as the weaknes of the small rounds. In real life they were PLENTY effective. Not in FB.

I may be wrong (been there done that) but I long ago concluded that something is "borked" with the jugs armament that no convergence adjustment is going to address. Period.

Thanks for letting me rant-
S!

I haven't tried with ALL the planes yet, but every plane I've tied that has wing mounted guns, I had to readjust convergence. 250 causes a wild spread and I think the extended trajectory makes it even more pronounced. My guess on .50's is that lack of tracers might make it a little bit harder to tell, but try setting convergence to 500 and see what happens.

Here is a picture of the dream I had last night... I'd show you the rest but after that Janet Jackson thing... you know...

as long as your dream didn't involve her, you and that cylindrical object in the bottom left, then it should be ok!

Now, if there were more pictures of Linda Carter squatting i'd visit UBI far more often.
