this is going to sound like a dumb question but why is it that i cant see the rearview mirrior in plane like the spit, in external view i can see a mirrior but when i go into the cockpit its mysteriously not there.

ah not a dumb question at all mate.

you have to go into the controls set up in the options and assign a button to Mirror and then when your in the game just press the button and it should appear.

Now there are 2 options with it,the first time you press the button you get a low res reflection and hittin it again gives you a high res reflection but obviously this takes a bit more CPU power and could chugg your computer down a bit depending on what your specs.

Hope this helps. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Maybe you have mirrors disabled. You need to go into controls and assign a button to it. It's in Misc. near the bottom. Otherwise, if you fly with Shift-F1, you will have a slightly zoomed in view and this sometimes hides the mirror from view behind a canopy support.

Also, not all planes have an internal mirror. It's one of those extra features like opening/closing canopies. The Spits should though.

It is a relatively small fps hit now.But it is useless all the same.Good for seeing your slayer`s face anyway.
