That's a great tip, thanks! The drift adjustment is super touchy.

I think I was scanning through the controls when I found out that you can also make fine adjustments by holding the [N] key and moving the joystick left or right. That's the method I've been using. But I'm glad you told me about this because it will make it much easier to center the pointer if necessary.

BTW, I just discovered all the mods still available at Taff's website. Here's a pic of one of them which I've modified/improved a little:

Cool, glad that it worked! The Mouse POINTER + HOLD CNTRL (maybe a better way to say it) also allows fine adjustments to the Norden Altitude setting. Yeah, I remember it being super touch and ruining good setups if you tried anything close to the target.
This helped me a lot with practice bombing and getting faster setups on the Norden so if possible I could adjust a missions IP away from FLAK zones and also hopefully find shorter bomb runs.
Being faster and more flexible I remember now also trying last minute 100 - 200 ft. altitude changes just before the bomb run, hoping to dodge some of those 88's !

Your B-17 mod looks sharp:up: I prefer the green over silver for sure.

I still have my B-17 disc. It has been a while since I played. Overall I really enjoyed the game and wish it was built upon for a great sim. I see another is in the works and looking forward to it!
