Tougher than I thought

Tougher than I thought

Wow, I'm glad I decided to go through all the tutorials before starting the actual campaign. Controlling an aircraft with a mouse is really, really difficult. I can't even hit 3 passive targets that don't shoot back! I must be doing something wrong. an
Any helpful hints anyone? Off to practice....

Re: Tougher than I thought

Shoot before target. Bullet is a object in BSM (it has his own way and time to fly). You just need practice to learn that. Watch my movies (if you want) you will see some examples, where you need to shot.

There is a category with Battlestations Midway movies recorded by me : CLICK Take a look for right column and you will see these movies.

Re: Tougher than I thought

Erm EST he said he has trouble controlling his plane and shooting and he is shooting passive and probably stationary target not a moving one.

But anywho EST's tip is nether the less useful. Id suggest watching some of my Let's plays as I actually play the campagin directly so you can draw some basic idea how to control and attack with a plane, here is a perfect section of it catered to you ae, Start from 2:00 to about 4:00.



Note
-----
-Whenever I try to circle around to another plane I zip the acceleration down to 0, this allows you to quickly turn but be careful not to stall

-Like EST said, notice how I lead the target when they try to move, its key in hitting a moving plane.

-its a bit harder to hit a non turning plane with no nose guns, yet its easy to hit them while they turn.

Re: Tougher than I thought

Ahh. Thanks for the tips guys. The real difficulty I was having was I wasn't using my views correctly and I was losing where the targets were. Once I learned to use my views properly (and slow down to attack as you suggested) I did OK. Thanks for your tips.

  • N_Trainz : What game and mod are you dealing with?
  • Runsva : Can someone PLEASE help me i can't install anything on my game it just keeps crashing!!
  • N_Trainz : Legendary Da: Its now live on Moddb and here is the link, requires a Batlestations Midway game to be installed to work «link» - midway - skinpack/addons/international - bsm - collection - light - version Enjoy
  • Runsva : are we still talikg about the zyy modding pack??
  • N_Trainz : Yeah I wanted to do this, but the installers were being a pain giving me errors about something. I finally got it working, and just figured out how to make the updater now since it'll be two parts with one containing the misc files and the other mostly the mpak files. It'll be a stand - alone DLC mod just like the Bismarck Mission Pack was. Like I said I plan to have it all completed and uploaded by this weekend
  • Legendary Da : No, no, not problem at all; I am already grateful that you were thinking about this subject, I can wait as long as you need to. Thanks for the help (again), and feel no need to rush this subject; we all know that the life comes first. :)
  • N_Trainz : Hope you won't mind the wait, it'll be worth it if you ask me, and yes I do understand that you can't download due to that cap Mege has. I heard the PM was down, but haven't tried it as I been busy helping the BSmodHQ team with things and then those that are life - in - general.
  • N_Trainz : To Legendary Da: I been trying to work on that actually, what I'm experiencing is the pack size> I already made it a light version of the mod, so hopefully this weekend maybe, might be sooner
  • Legendary Da : To N_Trainz: So, um... I can't exactly download from Mega for some reason; so could u upload that mod to Moddb? I am sorry for making extra work for you, and I TOTALLY understand if u can't upload it again; so, do as you want; I just wanted to say somehow I couldn't dl the mod (btw, why isn't the PM working?). U don't have to post the link either; I'll find it from the site if u upload it. Thanks whatever u do, and so sorry for the extra wish. :/
  • Runsva : Anyone there??
  • Runsva : That is on the zyy modding pack v1.0.3 forum.
  • Runsva : If that hepls...
  • Runsva : The link that I donloaded from is the one message before the last one on page 4 on this forum because all the others are for some reason down.
  • YamatoFavor : Zyy eh... doubt I installed successfully and seems like I lost the build
  • Axis_Crusher : Well I am aware of that mod, but I've never installed it. I'll ask around if I can find someone that successfully installed it.
  • Runsva : The zyy modding pack v1.0.3
  • Axis_Crusher : Just so we're on the same page which mod are you trying to install?
  • Runsva : Game*
  • Runsva : Do i need to make a copy of my gamr folder like Battlestations Midway?
  • Runsva : No I didn't install it into a separate directory, it is in steamapps - - > common like any other steam game.
