View Full Version : Bombs & Gear

10-26-2004, 04:36 PM
Even though I believe I have correctly programmed the commands in the control section to use buttons on my joystick(CH FS USB) to drop bombs and lower/raise my gear(manually for the aircraft requiring it) I can't seem to get them to work. The bombs don't seem to drop even with the default keys. The gear works except w/ the F4F, wildcat variants. Any help would be appreciated. Don't remember this problem in any of the other IL2 variations.

For the gear thing, the F4F has manual gear. You will have to use the "raise gear manually" and "lower gear manually" keys for it.

I don't know about the bomb one. You are binding "weapon 4"?

Bound keys for the manually raise and lower, they simply don't work>. I even held them down for a while to simulate the cranking up/down of the gear and nada. fixed the bomb thing though.

Not holding down, you have to press the keys again and again.....
Check the crank on the right side in the cockpit.

you have to press the lower-gear-manually button alot of times in succession, I estimate maybe 20-30 times or something to fully deploy the gear
