I've just started flying the biplanes armed with peashooters & not sure what convergence to use. For most fighters I use 180 m unless htey are all nose guns.
But I was wondering if I should drop it down to 100m for the J8 etc. with thoe weak little .303s
So what do you all use?
S!

With the biplanes I have the guns removed.

I go up buck naked, painted blue, and carry a knife in my teeth...

In all seriousness I use the same conv. as with any other plane which is about 225. I just try to hit in the "soft bits"- engines etc...

I use 183 in any aircraft that turn and burns. 183 is equivelent to 200yards.

You can go into your User/Settings.ini and set it below 100 as well if you like.

[cover]
mashinegun=80.0
cannon=80.0
rocket=500.0
rocketdelay=1.8
bombdelay=3.0
fuel=100.0

But once you change it in game to 100 or more again it won't go below 100 unless you change the config again.

I have use 80 before, but the explosions at that range can kill you too.

With the machine guns' Id go for 150. I find that a pretty good range for rather slow speed turnfights.

Just make sure you can hit the ones that flash on past close enough for you to turn and shoot.

Just fight in the Slovakia mountain valleys ... the AI does not seem to realise the mountains are there till the last minute and then attempts to zoom climb over the ridges and hangs at the top waiting for you to pick them off http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just keep good SA and be careful you do not CFIT, its not hard to get stuck with nowhere to go except into the trees in a biplane in a mountain valley.
