View Full Version : Non--functional bombsight

Whatever I try to do, the bombsight controls will not want to work. I've tried assigning them to the numpad, the keyboard, and even to my X45 in game, to no avail. What am I doing wrong? (and yes, I'm sure they're set because I click "apply" after assigning the controls, and I successfully assigned other controls such as Engine Selection)

key mapping to stick has to match exactly to what's in the controls setup in game or no joy

they work perfectly fine for me... Can you explain exactly what plane you're in, what are your actions?

Silly question but are you looking thru the bombsight? If not hit SHIFT + F1. If you are looking through the sight, then disregard.

no advice to offer, only that that happened to me a long time ago, then i never flew a bomber on a bombing run and actually used the sight again

Yeah, I do use the Shift + F1 to "look" into the bombsight. I also try it while looking outside of the bombsight. And, I know that the controls must be the same for both the profile and the game. This happens in both the He-111 and TP-3, and all variants of those. The bombsight simply doesn't respond, ever. Really puzzling. Should I post this in tech support?

The only thing I can suggest is to try mapping them to the same keys I have mine mapped to, and it probably won't work... Maybe the bombsight is picky about what keys you map its controls to though...

velocity mapped to: numpad 7 and 1
altitude mapped to: numpad 9 and 3
vertical angle mapped to: numpad 8 and 2
side to side angle mapped to: numpad 4 and 6
automation mapped to: spacebar

Go into the Users folder and look at the settings.ini file,or post it to see what do you have assigned to the bombsight.Default user is doe,if you use other profile,look then in the appropriate directory.

Bombsights work fine for me. I use the numberpad for controlling it. 9 and 3 for bombsight altitude, 1 and 7 for bombsight velocity, 0 for auto bombsight, + and - for bombsight elevation, 4 and 6 for side slip (I have never used that control though). Can you describe the problem in more detail, what exactly is it that is giving you trouble. I think what you have been saying is that the keyboard isn't responding in game, I suggest turning number lock on/off and seeing if that helps. If not then go into word or something and test the keyboard to see if it actually works.

It is probably autopilot. Turn off auto, else you can look but you can't touch.

That's what I have in my settings.ini file. I've tried both turning the "autopilot" off (there is no auto for the bombsight) and using the numlock to no avail.

The keyboard obviously works, as I use it for other commands. The number pad works. Everything works fine; the game simply won't recognize my commands for the bombsight, no matter where they are mapped.
