So I have recently been experimenting with bombers.

I have not bothered to screen record my flight time instead was relying on the replays.

Much to my dismay the WOWP replay files do not incorporate the bomb sight nor the turret.

I switched through all 7 camera angles and not one of them offered a turret or bomb view.

 

For most of you this is not a problem or a bother but having 2 additional camera angles would be great.

I have had some awesome turret kills while flying my GA inverted above an enemy.

Even had a really good turret kill in the bomber.  The bomber one is not as exciting in the normal replay.

So yeah kicking myself in the but for that one.

 

Any chance that WG could add 2 more camera angles with the replays.

A turret camera for number 8 and if no turret then just rear view.

and number 9 could be bomb sight mode or just looking down.

The replay feature is the bare bones of what it needs to be.

They gave us the minimum, I don't think it's on their list of things to improve anytime soon.


Be sure to check your logic privileges before posting on the forum.

Agreed.  And if anyone were to ask (and they won't), this particular request would end up at the bottom of the stack, probably.

 

A third party recording suite is the answer here.  And the only one that will make sense for the foreseeable future, I'm afraid.

I have a really bad feeling you are going to let us down on your next vid

you NEED those angles

the blood splatter must seem to evaporate

.

the shadows must lead into the next frame

good lord we can't have uneven horizons in that shot...

:rolleyes:

losty,

I appreciate your efforts

if the pilot's good, see, I mean, if he's really..sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low [he spreads his arms like wings and laughs],

you oughtta see it sometime, it's a sight. A big plane like a '52. VRROOM! There's jet exhaust, fryin' chickens in the barnyard.

Nope, that spot is reserved for the request to make the player backward compatible, so it can play recordings from previous version ...

Trying to understand replays...can they be viewed as was instead of replays forced views?

Yes I'd really like to have replays default to player camera and it be the proper player camera angle, with appropriate free look & switches to tail-gunner and/or bomb sight.
C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.
