If you like to use the cursor as a gun sight, here's one modified with cross hairs.  The arrow in the upper left-hand corner is the hot spot for the cursor.  To use it, replace cursor.bmp in the HTC/Aces High directory with this one. Be sure to rename or back up the original cursor in case this doesn't work.

Cursor colors are availble only in black, white, gray and red.  If you want a custom one, PM me and I'll see what I can do.

Keep in mind, not all of us think using the mouse cursor as a gunsight is legit.

Anaxogoras, you've been here what, a year and a half or so?
And you think you've earned the right to tell other people what is legit?

Just because your not the only one doesn't make you right.

As in the other thread, Hitech himself mentioned one day back in 01  I believe "cursor is just a .bmp file, do what you want with it as long as you keep size the same"

If those were not his exact words, they were very close.



Not that I use it myself. Their is an easier way for those of us with CRT Glass Screens.

I'm going to flat out say there are things alot "gamier" in the game you could worry about Anax. Such as the constant use of late-war British and Russian point-interceptors for *everything*...

I'm also going say that if you can't make the shot without raising your head in most planes, you probably can't make it with raising your head.

I use a little red cross for a mouse cursor. Even in Fw-190s, where you can only raise your head position 2 millimeters or so, not so much to see over the nose but because the way the lighting is modeled on the reflector glass gives me the %@%$@%Y%@%$ angry just trying to SEE the other plane sometimes. I don't consider being able to see the other guy's fluff'ng wingline and whether he's inverted or not "cheating".

The tinted gunsight gives me fits in a lot of planes when I'm tracking a bandit over the water or over trees.

from the trainers website :

Quote
The picture to the right shows the sight picture from an Ostwind if it were shooting at ground targets. Note how much of your view is blocked by the turret. Even when the gun is elevated for air-to-air gunnery, much of your view is blocked by the sight itself. To optimize your view from this position, put the cursor on the crosshair as in the picture to the left below. Once you have done that, use the "Page Up" key to raise your head position to its maximum and hit "F10" to save it there.

Look at it from Anax's point of view. Its only "gamey" if it shoots him down.

Lately he's been on an IL-2 vendetta. Boy, a lot of drama for your cartoon tank getting whacked out a few times.

Eustace how do you use this cursor exactly? Thank you. Can you use it in the game in an IL-2 in leiu Of your regular cursor? Also could I get a white one?

Thanks again. salute

Looking through where plane should be isnt gamey, that's as bad as when you could turn off the wings of your plane in AW.
