I am looking for a small 'mod' or even a texture file or something(?) which allows iron sights of all weapons to be used when right click zoomed. I also want it to be compatable with FH0.7 i.e. so that its just for looks. IMHO it seems dumb to raise a rifle a little like it is currently and it zooms in anyway...
There was a mod called Forgotten Hope Extended which included iron sights (amonst other junk) and its now dead so if anyone has a solution or a file enabling iron sights as well as allowing normal online play (like the Historical textures pack, it changes the skins and sounds and you can still play online) please post here
I don't even care if the iron sights sway when moving, as long as the crosshair is removed when using them, and they steady when standing still or prone
Cheers for your help

Well there isn't a magical thing that you can turn on to have iron sights, as far as I know, your only bet is to find Forgotten Hope Extended. To start, you can do a search on these forums.

If you're a good modder you could try porting the XWWII ironsights code (with their permission) to FH and see how it works...But what do I know about modding
I know nothing of coding...
I have seen a few other mods with these features as well, put it would seem right to ask them to port them... I don't know it just seems that the only thing FH really lacked was iron sights, but its good that there in FH2
iron sights in FH, could it be done?

I remember The Sharpest Point had ironsights...but then seeing as people on the forums bashed their work, they discontinued the project and created a new mod instead. I might still have some old files. Or you could send a PM to Mackan, he was one of the devs in the mod.

I´ve heard theres a FHE 0.87, I´ve only tryed 0.85. Ok, to the ironsights now XWW2 mod made 2D ironsights, I was shocked when I first saw them, they are pretty good but... in 2D. When I found FHE... I drooled. Animated ironsights. What they did is move the camera from the chest to the gun, in fact when u use the ironsights, the camera is alligned with the gun´s sights, so u actually get a super accurate shot, even more than in vanilla BF, aka with ironsights. The trick to make these ironsights is to allign the camera with the sights of the gun, and that can be very tricky because if u don´t allign it correctly, the ´center point´is not in the tip of the gun´s aim, and you have to guess where it is. FHE made some weapons, not all. For example, they didn´t make ironsights for jap weapons. Moving the camera is easy, the question is... how the hell did they allign it with the gun´s sight?? I´ve been looking for the answer since a few months... If I ever discover it, I´ll start adding ironsights to all FH guns, slowly and with patience. In fact my St. Mere-Eglise (which is currently in progress) was supposed to use these ironsights, the ones that FHE made already.
This notice is important.

That'd be great, And I assue that it would be a client side mod, ie it wouldn't cause errors for online play?
Perhaps you could contact the makers of FHE and ask how they found the centre of each gun? That would speed up things quickly
I personally looked for FHE (any version) every link ive found is dead and the home page is gone... But tbh, I only wanted ironsights (or the camera angle you've suggested) I never wanted the extras they shipped with the mod (ie vehicle hulks that stayed there, altho good idea it'd kill my CPU)
If you were able to make this simple ironsights minimod, with nothing else thrown in, I personally think it'd be a huge hit with the comunity
