Thanks for the feedback on this "issue".

I gave it a try yesterday and here's my findings:
1) You can destroy any ship without zooming at all (ship has to be visible). Just point directly at the ship and shoot.
2) You can use zoom factor x1 and x2 without any problems. Same conditions apply - the ship should be visible and you just have to have your ship in the middle of the zoomed view. Point and shoot.
3) While zoomed the range doesn't really matter (because of the shell speed as CaptainHaplo said).
4) There are some big motherf*cker ships like Fuso (+34000 tons) which can't be sinked just with the Deck Gun. I've spent over 3000 HE shells at her and she was still on the water (not moving tho'). At least 1 torpedo is needed to sink these ships.

I cannot reproduce the bug you was talking about, sorry...

WE WERE TALKING ABOUT SHOOTING AIRPLANES WITH THE DECK GUN, NOT SHIPS...
Try to shoot to kill a plane with your deck gun that is above you....
For ships, it runs like a charm!!!

Default Hmmmm

Problem is, that I don't even get to that screen before it lockes up on me buddy? I am still 'outside' the Deck Gun' on the deck and I can move it about to begin with, then, when I hit the mouse wheel the screen locks, but I am still OUTSIDE, if you get me here! I am not at the screen that shows the calibrations! I am still on the deck with the gun barrel beside me???

It is as if the game will not alow me to get there!

Ok, now I've understood you guys. And I've tried it myself.

1) The game does lock up when you try to shoot the aircraft with the zoomed (or at least when you try to zoom with it while pointing at the aircraft) Deck Gun, I do confirm it.

2) The game does lock up if you try to zoom with your Deck Gun in the area from about -90 degrees to +90 degrees while the aircraft is near the boat...

3) The game does not lock up if you turn your Deck Gun at the direct opposite direction of where the aircraft is coming from, zoom, turn the Deck Gun back 180 degrees and shoot (but you won't be able to hit the aircraft while zoomed).

4) It is possible to shoot the aircraft with Deck Gun without zooming . In this case the aircraft "dies" in the normal way as if you shoot it with the AA gun (no extra explosions, no Hollywood style effects etc).

The conclusion:
Use Deck Gun for the ships and AA guns for the Aircraft and you'll be ok.

As said earlier... If you zoom the Deck Gun while pointing it at the aircraft, then the game locks up... Otherwise it does not. And it does not do so for the others. The logical conclusions is that there's something up with your PC/SH4 installations/Some other mods...

Hmmmm

Well I can't get the deckgun to openup for me here, so I guess I'd better look for another MOD.

It looks a GREAT mod as well just can't figure out why it just siezes up? My gear is all good stuff. I stripped all my desk stuff off and Icons and all that but still no joy??????

Poopeye - you can use the gun - but you cannot use the gunsite/zoom feature. Just point and shoot - good thing is the mod is made for exactly that - there is no having to arc your shells - the speed is set so that the trajectory is entirely flat.

What are you talking about? The zoom feature works perfect, I've tried it on 3 different PCs now... It just locks up when you try to zoom the Deck Gun on the aircraft, but you shouldn't use Deck Gun on the aircraft, you have AA gun for that!

Oh well... You're the only one who seems to have that problem, I guess it's something with your PC, drivers, or there are some other MODs that prevent you from zooming...

HMMMmmm

Thanks Guys! You are all a good team here..these MODS really add 'spice' to the game and I am rally 'Hissed Off' at not beaing able to use TK's mod fully, however I am going to give it a try as it is anyway. :hmm:

My gear is OK as far as I know, but I have been sat here long enough to know that when you really want somthing to work it never will. If you are not bothered either way things work fine.

Thanks again guys and please keep up the good work.
