I just installed this on my 4.12 modact 5.11 install and it does the same thing.

I'm suffering from the same problem now, the same as epervier. I'm generating a new slot for the Catalina (so my additions don't foul up the existing mod); once i've done that, i'll get onto this.

Right;

I think i've solved the problem, and i've released the next update. See the original page. Please note, as stated in the OP, that i've released this as a standalone, so you may wish to re-install. You might get away with copying and pasting though.
I've edited the PBY classfile rather heavily, using what is for me some quite advanced code, but the others remain untouched. Keeping them together just reduces the chance of errors.

The aircraft should now be about as close to a black cat as you can get without making it amphibious; it features an all-new forward facing armament, reflector gunsight, new 3D models for the guns and (fictional) rocket rails.

If you're brave, you can dogfight in this thing. I've claimed a Fairey Fulmar, two B6N2's and a couple of MBR-2 so far.

A question, not a complaint... with the gunsight Im guessing I should be able to fire the cannons? If so I cannot fire them.

That depends - have you selected one of the gun options from the weapons menu? They won't show up in the QMB window, but they should be visible on the front of the aircraft after you start the mission. The aircraft only has the three .50 calibre guns in the turrets as a default.

I meant to ask you by the way, where did you get that skin from in the pic you posted on the previous page?

Edit: spitfire-MKIX, I heard rumours of another PBY-5A WIP elsewhere, so I won't be tackling that one.

The PBY has always been one of my top favorites so I have collected many skins for it. The one in the pic is named " Bombsaway " The man who made the skin also made a nose art of the girl for me so I could use it on other planes. I could send you the skins I have if you like. As far as the guns go, yes I have selected them, they show but I cant pull the trigger and make them shoot.

Mikoyan : yes, a PBY-5A was in progress, but the project has been cancelled.  :'( What a shame, it was almost completed and they managed to make the landing gear work perfectly!

I'd appreciate that; I only have the default skin and the black cat one I made so far.

With regards to the cannon problem:
1) Is this a fresh install or is it over the existing mod?
2) Do the cannon barrels show up in-game?
3) Which game version are you running?
4) In the 1923 German presidential election, which candidate secured less than 1% of the vote?

I reckon it's no.1 and the original PBY classfile is blocking my one. If not, I don't know - i've tried a fresh install with my version and I can't recreate the problem. Everything works as intended.

Lets see.. #4 was on Final Jeapordy last night.... Do I have to pose my answer in the form of a question? :) Actualy, its my fault. The button for those on my stick was a little sticky. :) They work. Sorry.
Would you like me to send you the skins?

I've tested this aircraft and it flies perfectly, but I can't manage to get the .50 cal guns and the reticle doesn't appear in the cockpit. I've installed it over the original PBY from Ranwers and I'm running DBW 1.71. Any ideas?
