View Full Version : Help releasing bombs (noob)

02-20-2005, 12:04 PM
Hi all!
(I usually would have searched the forum before asking but the search feature doesn't seem to be working http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif )
I played IL2 (base) a lot and just bought Pacific Fichters. (sssssoooooooooooooooooo beautiful it is!!!)
In the first mission to Pearl Harbour, the task is to bomb ships. I just cant release the bombs!
In the controller setup, the keys are well assigned (i'm assuming bombs are at position "weapons 2,3 or 4"), which is assigned to joystick btns 2-3-4 and backspace and space. I tried both keyboard keys and joystick buttons. Nothing happens! The machine gun (weapon 1) is working just fine but i cant imagine taking down a battleship with this weapon!!). I'm I missing something?????? Everything in the game runs perfectly.
Thanks in advance for any help!

Are you sure there are bombs on board?
Are you sure you need to take bombs?
Could be the mission is for you to escort the bombers?

In the Pearl Harbor mission (Wave2) you fly an A6M2-21 ... loaded with a Droptank..
You can change this into bombs.... but you won't get too far then I guess http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Better re-read the briefing screen, and see what truly is your mission goal!

Have fun!
