http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gifIt may be the fact that you were killed by the AI.If you had external views on you should have been able to watch your plane crash from f2 view,but pilot view f1 you would just see a black screen.
Did it allow you start another mission or are you referring to a computer problem,good luck.

thats pretty much it if you die or do stuff to yourself youll go blind http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif if this is a real post from a new gamer it means you were killed and you must start the mission over

Don't forget if you are wounded you will get a red screen as well,the more injured you are the redder the screen and your ability to operate the controls becomes very restricted.I see all them alot LOL http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I love the black screen. You hear "thump", it goes black, you go "damn!". I swear I still jump a bit in my seat when it happens. Very simple and effective.

I always find the question funny: 1st time it happened to me it was a surprise, but it seemed pretty clear that the pilot had been killed... the plane was going down, all controls lost, etc.

Of course all sound should be blocked as well and just as you die therer should be a slow, "ugh..." as your pilot expires. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif At least it would give a little more indication that you`re dead...

Still I like it.

SeaFire,

It's funny you mention how you thought it was obvious what had happened, because the first time it happened to me, I was in a high g turn. I thought I had just blacked out. Praising how realistic this was, I waited patiently for my pilot to regain consiousness... waited right into the ground.

Screen goes black when you get PK'd .. yes ... but after your plane crashes ... the picture will come back ... that of a big explosion and hole in the ground.

If you don't get that .. then maybe something wrong http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If you get PK'd when you're trimmed up for level flight you won't crash...

I got PK'd in an I-16 one day in QMB. I had full throttle on and the plane would climb until it stalled and then dive and climb back up again on and on. I quit the mission after 10 minutes of waiting for the silly thing to crash. I guess it would have continued those antics until it ran out of fuel. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif

Well they say if you touch yourself in the wrong way you'll also go blind.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif
Seriously.... once you get the black screen thats it. I have actually watched my plane on occasion fly straight and level till it ran out of gas and crashed. Another time it just went around in circles. Then other times of course it just continued down into the ground...

and HEY!! Welcome to the community kieth.... check out the Sturmovik Essentials link in my sig. It will lead you to most of what you will need to get yourself started in the sim.
