View Full Version : Gunsights...yeah, I'm a Newbie

09-03-2005, 07:11 PM
Greetings all,

I have just installed PF+IL2fb Goldpack merge, and patched with 3.03m and 4.01m.

When flying some of the aircraft, in particular the 109, the gunsight ring/reticule is way off to the left....I've tried assigning keys so that I can shift it to left or right, but nothing seems to happen.

Any suggestions?

Also, I've added some period marking correct skins that I downloaded for various Luftwaffe aircraft. When I do the quick mission builder - just so I can do a quick flight - only the umarked tails of the German fighters are there for selection. Is there a way to change this?

The skins I downloaded I installed as per the instructions included with the files...which is basically just putting the .bmp files in the proper type aircraft skins folder.

All of that is explained in manual.pdf file located in root folder. You got to have Adobe Reader to view it properly. Actually it is interesting read. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now download that and read the README in .zip file. That is 'a must' utility for all FB fans, it allows you to apply enormous number of markings on your unmarked skins.(it can enable swastikas on German tails too)

The links for best skins
CanonUK skins (http://www.canons-skins.com/)
Hammerd skins (http://members.cox.net/hammerd/Main.html)
vpmedia skins (http://www.vpmedia.hu/il2/)
FlyingLegends (http://flying-legends.net/php/downloads/downloads.php?cat_id=20)
Kamikuza skins (http://skinz.dojak.com/)

I know more good artists but some of them don't have their pages, or I simply don't know about them.

You have to use only PF skins since you have only PF planes. Once (if) you get yourself FB+AEP you can have merged install and have all planes available in this series.
