The shoulder thing on the left is a luftfaust. Apparently it was some sort of late-war anti-air weapon, but I've never understood how it worked.

myrkul_8Okay now im getting pretty angry! YOU CANT SEE ANYTHING IN-GAME YET CUZ ITS NOT TRANSPARENT! Dont you even read my posts?

Yes I did read it and I was not talking to you I was just explaining why I said you couldn't see "jack shit" with it and thus it would not be worth it to get an action shot Count Nosferatu asked for. Jeez And I never said I could do it any better.

OhioanThere was no heat detection or color in WW2 IR scopes. It used only the IR signatures provided by the IR searchlight, usually only up to 100 meters worth of visibility. There were hanomag-mounted UR searchlights (Uhus) that would extend this to 700 meters.[/QUOTE]

and some panthers used these searchlights to kill russian tanks. then the ruskies figured it out, and blinded them with FLAK-searchlights IIRC :lol:

[QUOTE=lumpeh]Theres a screenshot of BF2 from within the gunner position of a chopper and its got a b&w screen effect applied :naughty:

what's the effect that DC (i've only played up to DC 0.7, so it's at least in that version) has on some of their C-130 positions? it's some sort of green-tint without colors (maybe the tint is so strong that it overrides any color)

Myrkul, instead of getting so mad at peoples complaints/suggestions maybe you should wait til you are more finished before posting anything.

Yeah, an unfortunate side effect of IR is that normal light spectrums appear as uber-bright, and can frag the system and your eyes if you're looking in one at the time.

They put a transperant sprite in front of the camera that you can only see within x distance. It makes it look like its through a scope but its actually just a picture projected in front of the gunner spot that you can see through, and they paint it green.

Go right up next to the Apache and go prone, then face the 30mm gun. You'll see it appear (its a bug lol) and know a little better what I'm talking about.
