SBD 3 sight
« on: September 01, 2019, 10:34:52 AM »

Somehow, cockpitDim Ctrl D command no longer opens the tube sight.I have 5 separate versions of IL 2, SAS 4.12, Il 2 BAT, Il 2 4131m, IL2 DBW, and a Steam version updated to 4131m which I have never done more than open, and none of them respond to the Ctrl D command. All of the User/default.ini show cockpitDim=Ctrl D. All of the Control panels show Tinted Reticle Dimmer=Ctrl D. Yet, several days ago, they all seemed to work. I've searched both here and M4T and found information, but none of their problems seem to fit. I admit, I probably did something. All I can think of had to do with up dating Straight from the Farm campaign.
Anyone have any ideas? All help gratefully appreciated.

That's weird!
The cockpit I use for the SBD-3 does not have a sight tube cover.
Just do "Shift+F1" to be in the viewfinder.

I see the same as Epervier using BAT and VP Modpack. I don't recall the SBD ever having a cover on the sight. Shift-F1 (or a more convenient mapped key) puts me in sight mode.

SAS~Epervier, vonofterdingen,
Thanks for your replies. I figured out how to get around the problem. Sorry it took so long to reply. I left on a trip before I saw your responses and just returned.
