Hi all, 1sat post and some noob questions...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Good game so far! flying quite well, died many many many times ;) had problems with the eindekker and the early German planes, but finally managed to fly the nieuport well.... until it requires reloading!

 

I can seem to find out how to reload the lewis gun. I sorted out CTRL C to bring the gun down, but cant seem to reload it....

 

Any help would be great.!

 

Additionally, I cant seem to find any help posting kill claims... i've genuinely killed about 30 aircraft now, but only had 2 claims actually confirmed :(

 

Wonder if anyone could enlighten me...

 

Thanks all in avance

Welcome,

 

I'm not 100%sure, but I believe that I read somewhere that you fly with three magazines for the lewis and it is reloaded automatically. You just use the Ctrl C for a reload animation. It doesn't actually give you additional rounds.

yes, that's correct. Just pressing the Ctrl C drops the Lewis and auto loads it. And yes.. only 3 mags... better to hold back than take pot shots with the Lewis.

Hi VF101_KurtStudent

 

You have ALL your ammo already loaded at the start!

shift+c simulates the reload.. so you could fire 1 drum worth (97 rounds in later Nieups, and then shift+C pretend you reloaded..)

 

N11 had smaller capacity drums so has very few total ammo

N16-17 have 97 round mags so total is higher.

 

If you want loads of ammo none historical, put unlimited ammo on in the workshop.

 

Note guns can jam - short bursts

Pray, keep firing it. I press U too to make me feel better but it won't make much difference.

If you don't like jams turn it off in workshops.

Ahhh... so there is no key stroke for 'unjamming'? I take it that you have a 'die roll' chance that your gun will 'unjam' if you keep pulling the trigger?

 

And yes Pol... I finally got OFF phase 3. Quite good work you, Winding Man, and company have done. Well done!
