Default No Aiming Sight

Hi,

Not a bug (I hope).

New to CA.

How do you get the aiming sight to show up?

All I can see is the view below.

Doesn't make a difference if I zoom in or out.

Sort of makes it hard to judge elevation and hit things.

The Cromwell and Tiger I & II seem to be the only ones that have the aiming sights.

Is this normal or a bug?

Or is there something that I need to enable?

Are you playing at 4K, if so that might be an issue. I personally have not encountered this issue

Same problem here.
In full HD and in 4K.
The issue is the multi monitor.
Helles Belle have you multi monitor?

Multi-monitor, yes.

I’ll start by checking that, then move on to 4K & HD.

Hopefully they can fix it to work with a multi setup, pain in the rear if you want to fly and do CA in a game.

Thanks for the info guys.

Armed with the above suggestions I did some more invetigating.

After reading through some posts that I didn't previously find. I decided to change the lua file for monitors.
I am using two monitors side by side. Main screen (cockpit etc) on left monitor, left & right MFCD's on the right monitor.

I used LMFCD+Camera+RMFCD selection on the settings screen & (after saving the orignal lua) modified the one in the game folder to what is below.

_ = function(p) return p; end;
name = _('LMFCD+Camera+RMFCD');
Description = 'Left MFCD on the left monitor,Right MFCD on the right and camera on the center'
Viewports =
{
Center =
{
x = 0;
y = 0;
width = screen.width / 2;
height = screen.height;
viewDx = 0;
viewDy = 0;
aspect = screen.aspect / 2;
}
}

LEFT_MFCD =
{
x = screen.width / 2;
y = 0;
width = screen.width / 4;
height = screen.height;
}

RIGHT_MFCD =
{
x = screen.width *(3 / 4);
y = 0;
width = screen.width / 4;
height = screen.height;
}

UIMainView = Viewports.Center

--///////////////////////////////////////
--Combined Arms
--///////////////////////////////////////

GU_MAIN_VIEWPORT =
{
x = 0;
y = 0;
width = screen.width / 2;
height = screen.height;
}


These threads helped towards finding the fianl solution (for me anyway)

You'll notice from the first two screenshots that I posted, there is a black square in the top left corner with a hole.
This is the aiming scope with the reticle inside (it can be seen in game when magnified )
This has now been expanded to the full size of the screen and appears to work normally.

Hopefully this can be of use to some one out there.
