B.A.T. BOMBSIGHTS - Let's fix'em all!
« on: September 26, 2018, 06:41:42 AM »


UPDATE 13 April 2019:

DOF, TGA and WAW Bombers were taken to the hangar for B.A.T. v3.6 THE BLITZ. Some fixes worked better than others but absolutely all bombers have now working bombsights and usable bombardier stations (where applicable). Fixes were applied directly to the B.A.T. core and files cannot be provided separately because of the sheer amount of code changes between B.A.T. v3.6 THE BLITZ and standalone mods and because of non-documented interdependencies with other mods.

This project is complete but there always is room for improvement. Some bombers will be revisited and improved in the future and you can use this topic to report bombardier-related issues.

Get B.A.T. v3.6 THE BLITZ





OLD TOPIC:

4.12 broke many old mods and bombsight fixes have been surfacing slowly but steadily. For one reason or another some fixes went unnoticed to the B.A.T. crew. A bomber with a broken bombsight is pretty much useless and we won't see these heavies featuring in any missions. So much potential wasted!



How can you help?
  • Identify aircraft with broken bombsights
  • Help finding already available fixes
  • Test the fixes in your B.A.T. and report conflicts
  • Fix a broken bombsight if you dare! (we don't need historical accuracy at this point, a working crosshair is better than nothing)
I just got started with this so I ask a little patience. Many aircraft must be yet reviewed. I intend to maintain this post and update it often but I have little time.

Fixes below are already included in B.A.T. v3.5 Musketeer. The download is still available but it may get removed anytime...

All fixes below are ready to go to your B.A.T. LINEBACKER in one JSGME-ready download:

Cheers Henky, accepted as 'the researcher' ;D let's however thank the modders that took the time to re-code the bombsights for 4.12. I cannot fix broken sights myself, I tried and failed, but will keep trying.

Anyone can help and participate here

Dear Whistler,
congratulations.
as we say in French a bomber without a bombsight is like " a beautiful girl with a missing tooth"" une jolie fille à qui il manque une dent"
Could you please explain how to introduce the mods in BAT WAW3:
the complete folder thru JSGME or
each plane thru JSGME
or?
Best regards.

[...] a bomber without a bombsight is like " a beautiful girl with a missing tooth" [...]

Precisely! :D

Dear Tart,

Unzip the download and move it to your BATMODS folder. You should have:

BATMODS > !#BAT_BOMBSIGHT_FIXES_27-Sep-2018 > #WAW3 ...

Activate !#BAT_BOMBSIGHT_FIXES_27-Sep-2018 with JSGME.

In Ju 388K, Ju 88A-4 Late and Ju 88A-5 the position of the bomber can be used, but the bombsight does not appear with the corresponding key, at least in my B.A.T. V3.5 Musketeer.

The Ju 388K is easy to fix loading the original cockpit mod, but for the other two I have not found any solution.

Surely someone with more knowledge can fix it.

Many thanks for the report sturmbock.

I confirm the Junkers 388K Bombsight gets fixed by applying western's update. Good catch! Thanks western!

Unfortunately the Ju 88A-4 Late and Ju 88A-5 remain unfixed.

Project complete. First post updated. You can use this topic to report bombardier-related issues or create a new topic in the tech section.

Cheers!
