    Now 21 pages in total; errors corrected, one chart slightly altered and some usefull things added.

    Get it here:
    WORD ver. - 8MB, high res pictures.

    PDF ver. - 1.2MB, low res pictures.

    Big thanks to Chatanooga for hosting it again, I really owe you a beer m8.

    Few notes:
    - Link in the old thread points to v1.1 now.
    - At the and of the manual in the links area, you'll find link to a part of Crash Moses bombing guide which covers how to use your defensive guns. (red color link)
    - This manual covers MANUAL, not AUTO bombsight operations.

    Thor.

    I fixed my font size problem with BsT2.

    It was just font resolution in my display set-up.

    I'm starting to get good results with the "manual" technique.

    - Glad you solved the problem Von_Bladebender.

    Thnx Fusek. Hehe, well it just might be so...

    You can't use level bombing on all maps though...

    My manual describes level bombing with planes that are fliable -> have working bombsight. If you want to learn how to level bomb with non-fliable planes like B-17, I suggest that you look HERE.

    EDIT: And HERE

    Small update to Happy's "Quick reference navigation and bombing sheet" has been made to accomodate for new bomber pilots.

    DL link is the same as in the manual.

    Make sure, in your conf.ini file, that you don't have a line under the [HotKey game] section like this:

    [HotKey game]
    Pause=pause

    If you do, change it to this:

    P=pause

    Hi Optopopit,

    yes, the table is supposed to run as overlay, you can call it on and off the screen whenever you press shif+pause. There is one trick tho - start BT2 before entering the game or it will bring you to desktop first time you press shit+pause.

    It shouldn't pause your game. Try creating new pilot/account with default key settings and try it again.

    Hi to all pilots!!!

    I have a rather annoying problem: the Bomb Sight Table2 screen, regularly visible before IL2 launch, disappear after starting the sim, even pressing SHIFT + Pause, making the program unusable. Did it happen to someone else (Vista users, obviously)? How did you solve the problem?

    Another question.: as the White Tigers (who realized the program) site is no more on line, did someone try to analyze the program's files to understand how it has been realized and to improve it? Unfortunately I don't have the competence needed.
    Thank you for your answers.
