Damage appears automatically
« on: July 20, 2021, 11:50:07 AM »
Is there a way to set the damage list to appear automatically? Right now I turn it on when I need it but it would be better if it auto appeared as a check-box option for gameplay options. In VR, it's a pain to turn it on.

I have it mapped to a button on my J/S.  Very quick with VR

agreed...if you have a spare button to map it to.  But I was thinking it would 'appear' automatically for like 10-20 seconds then disappear every time you're damaged.

+1 on this. Remembering to Ctrl-D every sortie is a minor annoyance. It should work like Ctrl-I (FPS?) and others that once you turn it on, it sticks.

For text to appear with each hit seems overboard and distracting for many to use..best use of limited programming?

A button on the throttle allows me to pop it up when I need to know

Compared to IL2 or DCS where you have no idea whats going on unless you switch to an external view, AH is light years ahead of them concerning this subject.

This seems like the best solution to me.  Doesn't effect people who don't need/want it, programming effort seems reasonable, and solves the problem of being able to see damage as it accrues, while in VR.
