No shells spent ejected when firing
« on: April 03, 2013, 08:54:50 AM »

Hello friends, Happy to meet you, I am a new member on your forum. I was redirected here by M4T friends, because I have some trouble with DBW 1.71.
I play with DBW 1.71 and I playing a default campaign with Me.109G-6.
I wish to know why do not seen ejected shells spent when I firing weapons. When I played with IL-2FB+PF+AEP they saw.
Anyone could help me, please?

hi Marco
as i remember, there was some fx mod which replaced the casings with smoke trails.
( i don't remember which :-[ )
have you checked your fx packages, perhaps something is interfering...?

As Malone said....

Have you installed some effects mods?

Did you see smoke from wings when firing?

Empty shells are an effect , in some mods (don't remember if also in DBW) them are changed into gun smokes....I feel it more realistic on long distances while empty shells are better for closer screenshoots....

Hangman, yes, there is some effects options that gives both, but there are also others which use one or the other - which is what we are trying to determine here.
can you also let us/the poster know which fx you use, as it always helps in the forum, to make it easier for anyone to find  ;)

I installed DBW 1.71, no other mods...

Yes, only smoke.....

Empty shells are an effect , in some mods (don't remember if also in DBW) them are changed into gun smokes....I feel it more realistic on long distances while empty shells are better for closer screenshoots....

So, wich kind of effect could I download and install to have empty shells?

Many many thanks for your help, guys!!! :) :)

Ciao.

The Mod that has Smoke instead of Shells is in DBW  JSGMEmods Folder called:  #DBW_FX_Small Collection, you can disable it with JSGME.exe

Hi guys, well, de-activating "DBW-FX Small Collection" works to have shells spent out from the wing, but not for Me-109...?!?!? DBW's mysteries....
For all other planes the de-acctivation works properly...
I think now it is ok but if you have other suggestions they will be much appreciated....

Ciao!
