Post your game version and patch history. This sort of problem is often a result of incorrect patching.

i have 4.04m. im sure ive patched it correctly. i patched the game as the patches came out. but i'll re-install. hopefully that will fix it.

thanks!

Did the problem start only after applying that last patch, 4.04m?

To be honest, I only ever play online so I didnt really notice. The only plane is couldnt play online was the H-81.

It was only the other day when I decided to try a single mission and it didnt work.

I haven't had time to re-install all 3 games just yet. But I'll be sure to give this thread some closure once I know the re-install fixed it.

It shows no exterior rendering of the aircraft (unlimited forward view) and has a few round instruments displayed on the lower sides of the screen.

Called wonderwoman view as it makes it look like your plane is invisible with a few handy pop up instuments for total loss of immersion.

ahhhhh I see. Yeah I know the one you mean...where you press Ctrl+F1 to get that?

Thats not it...my default view is full cockpit graphics. Standard F1 view.

Absolutely a patching issue IMO

Everyone who sees this phenomenon swears they have patched correctly. Most come back and mention they found their mistake

im sure it was just my lack of patching skills.

i hope it doesn't sound too geeky to say that i cant wait till its fixed...i REALLY wanna play that single mission where you only have the tail-gunner for the SBD against the Japanese. alas, im away for the weekend so i gotta wait. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif lol
