Hello All:

Quite some tima ago I saw a video that someone had created in IL-2. The video featured still images of bullet trajectories through the aircraft marked with arrows (kinda like a pin cushion).

Does anyone know if this is a downloadable utility, and if so, does it work in PF?

Thanks!

In the PF directory, find conf.ini.

Open it, and find the line 'arcade=0' change to 1.

Yes, that works offline and in .trk's. In online and .nrtk that feature do not work, because online it would be cheating. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

This ARCADE mode is actually quite educational. You can see the entrypoints of each bullet and shrapnel from cannons shown as arrows of various length. It is quite depressing to see how few that actually hit the target.

Also, try a big bomb (e.g. Pe 8 with the "nuclear" one) and force it to drop it say 1000m above ground. You can do it by setting it up in the QMB and chase it with a fighter.
The Pe8 will be perforated by shrapnel from the bomb.

Thanks for the info everyone.

I made the change to the .ini file last night.

I had so much fun with this I flew until 4AM!

I won't be worth a **** at work today!!!

At any rate, it seems like a useful training tool. I found myself trying to make each gun burst count and I realized I was over-killing quite a bit.

Cool feature.

It's AI only and not in PF standalone, you need the "modified" DF mission file and IL2 Sturmovik, FB, FB/AEP or FB/AEP/PF if you actually want to fly it.

If you just want to see it in action, Quick Mission Builder and one of the above mentioned installs.
