I've been playing this game (franchise really) since it came out, so why I should have a question about it is beyond me. Namely, there are rear-view mirrors in this game, right? How do you turn them on/off? I'd really appreciate a simple answer.

Thanks in advance.

go to the controls menu and see if there is a key mapped for mirrors. If not assign a key to it. I have it as ALT M.

Alt-M is the default
Press it twice ! (1st = low detail - 2nd = hi detail)
On first press you won't see the runway e.g. (you'll allways see a reflection of a grass strip)

It will cost you FPS - but if cockpit is locked and the plane has a mirror http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Question: Did you back-up your files?
Answer: I didn't know they had a reverse...

About the FPS thing, anyone know why it hits on that so bad? I tried it and it really took a toll on my system. Would be really nice to have it on all the time.

It's a secondary viewport-render http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
meaning the situation has to be calculated from 2 viewpoints - then mapped to the primary view (the mirror lol) what did you expect?

ofcause it downs FPS http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif lol especialy if the situation is tense with one on yur tail - laag - HE CHEATED ! - hehehe - nonono --- ya got ya mirror on :P lol

having trackir .. i map mirror to one of my joystick hat axis

unfortunately i also have icon toggle and zoom in out on the hat as well so in combat i occasionally find myself flipping the mirrors on and off by mistake http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

is that a Mustang with nose cannons, or a bf-109 with wing cannons?
