This is the continuation of this topic. There U can find the early beta version of my simple bombsight calculator program. Here(link out-of-date, download below) is the newest version. Feel free to download and try it. I still didn't manage to make it "Always on top" application. This feature is new to me and I just didn't figure out yet how to do this. If someone has any suggestions please post them here.
This program was wrote in Java. After downloading simply double click it and it should run.
There are two tabs - "Wind" and "Speed/Height". With first you can calculate the wind which you put in bombsight "wind circle". First, set plane heading in left slider, then the direction from which wind is blowing. On the bottom there will be rotation direction (left or right) and number of degrees to set on "wind circle". Left means rotate couterclockwise, right - clockwise.
Aircraft is heading 220
Wind is blowing from 160
Set left slider to 220 and right slider to 160. On the bottom will be: value 60 and left in green. That means that you should rotate "wind circle" counterclockwise to set 60 on the top. That's it, no calculations required.
On the second tab you can convert speed from mph to km/h and m/s; and height from feet to meters. There is also little field on the bottom where you can set your target altitude in feet, which will substract from the total value of meters.
If anyone have any questions please post them here. When new version will come I'll update this topic.
I'd like to thank SYN_Flashman for his level bombing guide. Whithout it I would never done this little program.
I haven't got much time to work on my program because of Christmas but i've manage to implement "always on top" feature, well… sort of. It works only with RoF's fullscreen mode switched to OFF. I'm aware that not all of U will like it but it works. When U set in RoF your display's native res, then RoF looks basically like in fullscreen mode.
Here's short clip which shows how it works and how to set everything. I hope U will have more luck in bombing runs, i've missed my target this time … Have fun.
