What is your usual setting for convergence? Do you set it differently if you're flying missions against bombers or dogfighting fighters? I usually set it at about 200 for bomber missions and 100-150 for dogfighting.

Depends on what I'm packing, and what I expect to face. If I've got MG 151/20 gun pods and I'm going after Pe-2s or Il-2s with rear gunners, the cannon are going to be set to converge at 3-500m, depending on how sharp I feel, and I approach from an angle behind and below, if possible.

Going in 'Default,' I keep the cannon at 150m max, same as the MGs. In the P-39, it doesn't matter where the cannon is converged, I can't hit anything with it more than 100m away anyway.

With the 190, I set the outer wing cannon in the same way the pods are set according to expected opponent and how lucky I feel. The inner guns are set for dogfighting; 150m max.

Cheers

150m, always.

You can go higher for bombers but, bare in mind that bullets will get less effective when they must travel greater distances also, your aim gets worse.

150, unless I am in a tankbusting mission, then I set the cannons to 250-300

What happens if you set mg and cannon convergence differently?

in all seriousness it really depends on the settings that you play. if you play "full noob" or "arcade" i suggest anywhere from 200-500, reason being the planes are a lot bigger targets than with cockpit on and you can fire from much farther away.

if you have facial hair and play "full real" or "full difficulty" or "full switch", i almost always use around 150, 100 with the emils. oh and if i fly a p40 or p51 i use 180.
goodday.
