how do you control the rocking forward and backward while you try to aim at the target?
Its driving me nuts http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
I tried trimming but I have to repeat it for each pass since trim have to be removed while turning otherwise I wont turn fast enough.
Also, trim control is on my joystick (a knob that can be turned). Due to the response curve that I set up, the joystick becomes oversensitive when trim is on.
Any ideas anyone ?
thanks

I'd suggest some deadband on your joystick settings. You're adding in "pilot induced oscillations" with the way you handle the stick.

Exactly. It`s what I do to cure my horizontal and vertical `jumpimg`.

Yeah I have the same problem. Is there anyways to stop or at least dampen the oscillation when you shoot? Obviously the gun vibrates but I find I'm all over the place. How can I hold my guns on a target as I shoot? What is deadband? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I did two things recently to cure this problem.. I increased my "deadband" and decreased the sensitivity of my stick overall... I had to tweak around with the settings to finally find something that gave me a more stable shooting platform....

The easy answer is to disable "headshake" in the difficulty settings.

It works fine but ruins your gunnery skills when you get on a server with even 1/2 real settings.

Best advice, learn to shoot that way and adjust for the condition. Much more realistic that way.

This sounds just like what I used to do when I fired the guns. I would unknowingly pull hard on the trigger and this would cause me to jerk the stick backwards or forwards depending on the case. What I did was forced my self to squeese the trigger and it worked for me. Wether this will help you or not I can't say just my 2 cents.

Agree. Certainly stick settings and condition make a difference. But if these are on specs, simply squeezing off bursts reduces this problem. The a/c, after all, is a gun platform. Move the platform by gripping the stick too tight or jerking the trigger...and shots are likely spray around.

Two good things happen when I get it right: 1) it improves my aim; 2) concentrates the fire.

Now, if I can only remember all that when I'm jinking to avoid gunner fire and closing way too fast to avoid a collision!

Winning isn't everything;
It's the only thing!

Hi

A simple remedy if you have the hand co-ordination and a Hotas is to configure a button on the throttle as the trigger, strange at first but you get used too it. Also remember when you do use the trigger on a stick to squeeze it and not snatch at it, basic marksmanship principles.
