Hello gentlemen!
I've been flying this sim since early Il-2 days, but I've always been a terrible marksman. Ridiculously I always find it very difficult to hit fighters when I'm on their 5 or 7 o'clock, 100 yrds distance http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif Well, I guess I'm on of these "aiming-handicapped" men and I'll never be a good shooter. But at least I want to be better one http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif So here's my question for experienced "aces": Do you think that messing with input values for joystick in game settings can improve gunnery skills a bit? I'm not asking about "filtering" (I've set it all the way right in order to be more "sensitive" with my stick http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ). Just these numbers. Now I have them set in linear way (10, 20, 30, 40 and so on). What are Your settings and do they give You better A/C control during linin'up for a precise shot?
Any tips appreciated...

Regards

I'm no ACE and no great shot but git rid of those settings they are too twitchy. Do something like this maybey

1X1=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0 it makes for a more finite response when just off the center of the stick. My aim has improved since I did it, but I am still struggling like a fool even so.

Since I fly FW 190 mostly, I set my roll to something like this...

5, 8, 16, 27, 36, 47, 59, 71, 85, 100

The important thing is to find that area that suits your flying style best AND remember that you will need your last number to be 100 to get maximum travel from your input. I found that having a low value in the number 9 position then 100 is not a good idea as it will cause you to snap stall quite a bit. Just my .02.

TURN OFF FILTERING. It's only there to iron out spiky off center response from cheap or worn out joysticks. If your joystick is performing well and responding smoothly throughout its range of motion, filtering is slowing your joystick inputs for no good reason, and probably encouraging bad flying and aiming habits.
