View Full Version : This would be a great idea for BoB......

....I like to watch some of the tracks I make in IL2/PF, but there are times I just want to look at the last 15 seconds.

I like to analyze my timing. Should I have shot a second before or after I did? I don't want to watch a half hour track to see a few certain seconds.

It would be great to press 'R' for replay (while flying in a mission or in QMB)of the last 15 or so seconds. If we could have the replay with the control of the camera like in the TRK files this would be a great tool to improve flying, and shooting skills.

Bit like the good ol' Cool Cam in European Air War but more controllable, eh? This sort of thing could actually be handy. Even better with a sort of a slide rule of the clip where one could choose the segment(s) to play with a couple of mouse clicks. Perhaps this is allready doable with a software like Fraps, I dunno.
A Cool Cam type of thing could actually be really impressive if there was a big strategic air battle going on on a huge map (which is something I hope BoB will be...).

Also, a rewind feature would be nice. Sometimes the moment you want to view is 10 minutes into a 20 minute long track and you just want to see the same shot again and again from different angles.

What gave me idea of mentioning it was GTR. (Grand Touring Racing by Sim Bin.) I watch the replay DURING my race...or practice. I just completed an chicane, but I want to see my line so I can either break sooner or to come closer to one corner or not.....etc etc.

In BoB it could be a useful tool to look a 15 second clip OF the last 15 seconds you flew.

Why did I miss that shot? What did the AI do to CAUSE me to miss? Should I be shooting a fraction sooner or later? What did I do that bled soo much enery? It would help me in mudmoving I'll tell ya that.......

Or dang! that was a great move I did. I NEED the instant gratification of seeing it again?

This obviously couldn't be used online...... but the majority of people play offline anyway. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/mockface.gif

If you are in a mission and review via trk. file you have to go through the whole mission to get to the pertinant part.

Agree, and hope one day this feature will be at disposal for all .ntrk files of Fb to make easy the hard work of creating Fb movie too! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif..-Falco

great ideas, and what about a free camera, i mean we effectivly have it in fmb already, would be a great addition to watching tracks.
