1) What is a "Speed Bar"
2) What is the best way to slow down in a dive?
3) How do i rewind a replay while it's playing?
4) Is there a free camera option in replay mode?
5) Does recording slow anything down when playing online, how much of an effect does it have on your connection with the server or system preformance?
6) How do i turn off all HUD icons in replay mode? (For taking awesome screenshots)
7) The Spitfire MK VIII feels faster and more agile then the Spitfire IX, is this correct?
8) Which Spitfire do you fly and why?

1.Thing in your left low corner of monitor. In red showing you useful info. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Not entirely present in 'realistic' mode, just heading is presented then.
2.Obviously throttle to 0, deploy combat flaps, and *circle* a bit instead of direct dive.(in Spitfire try to assign flaps on wheel, so instead of raised/landing position you can have more flaps positions. Useful.) You can also open radiator (on later Mk. Spits you do not have that option).
3.No way
4.No. If you think of already built in cameras in mission, or external a/c views, yes.
5.No. Just initially you can experience slow down for a moment. Set connection speed to LAN (highest). Badsight. suggested so, I believe him (for most correct recording of .nrtk's).
6.Toggle between pit on/off. You will figure it out. If you set pit on, there are no HUD and arrows. Speedbar remains.
7.Many says that Mk.8 is better, so I supose, yes.
8.I do not fly Spit much. But I prefer Mk.8 if I fly one. Also Mk.9 for high alt. Or maybe 4 cannon version which will be in 4.0. For obvious reasons.

Thanks man http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

Ive been using the Spit VIII all along and i've had some awesome luck with it.

I've only been playing for a week and I shot down 4 aircraft online last night all in one sortie.

Blew the tail of a BF 109 completely off, Shot the wing off a Stuka, Shot the wing off a Yak, and shot up another Spit untill it caught fire and exploded. All of these were deflection shots (i was trying to lead "More than normal"). Unfortunatly i didn't make it back to land because the explosion from the other spit tore my wing off!

What server was this ?

Any server I fly where you can get a 109, a Stuka, A Yak and a Spit means you got 2 enemy and 2 friendlies !! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I don't know that I'd brag about a 50/50 ratio of TK's ! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
