Default Gunsight Disappearing Workaround

For everyone who is suffering from the gunsight disappearing bug in both the OB and Stable Release, the workaround is to use the last 2.5.4 build of the Stable Release.
Works fine in that.

Bug is not fixed. Took the Spitfire out today, gunsight puked 10 seconds after takeoff. Wiggled the switch, nothing.

Over 3 hours of flight in the Spitfire today, no loss of the gunsight. Seemed to work for me. /shrug

Nineline thought it could be linked to random system failures. I have that checked. I'll uncheck it and see if that changes anything.

I mentioned I did NOT have random failures set in as post #5 in the bug thread 5 weeks ago... I also hinted at it having something to do with repair.

Just happened to me as well. About 5 min after takeoff (Caucasus, Hoggit map).

Interestingly it came back after doing repair. I just checked that "random failures" wasn't checked and came here to post: "gun sight disappearing".

I wonder if they found it or just disabled Gun Sight failure (fine with that as long as it gets really fixed eventually).
