The shit skew gunsight makes me so angry that I go to forum to ask why designer dont put them on the center line. I know there are some gunsight are on center, but they are gunsight or telescope, german planes use collimators which is my love, but they are skew, and you have to tilt your head all the dogfight and even doing that, cos intense fight you barely can see a stable crosshair, in most case its invisible. It is said that skew gunsight is for single eye aim, does it really works? I am curious.

But not curious enough to find out how to centre your gunsight of choice....it's flexi, you make it how you want it, then you save it, then you use it.

 

S!

Get it where you want it, press F10.

 

But beware, if you screw up you may have to get your head into weird positions to fix it :icon_e_biggrin:

Or you may pause your trackir for the occasion - check your trackir profile for the keybinding or make there one that does not conflict with ROF settings.

Next adjust the view you want for saving with the Insert/home/pgUp//delete/end/pgDn or mouse.

Next save it with F10.

After which you may reengage your trackir and it will jump to the saved item if it was the pit view you just saved.

If it was off center it was usually to the right of center to line up with the right eye. You'll find that the Germans did it in WW 2 also.

If you are left eye dominant like me then you have to stand on your head to line up the sight.

Or, just map it to a key/button on your controller (like the Germans did in WW2  :icon_e_wink: )
