Perhaps I missed it for 13000 games BUT- I just noticed that with planes, such as SU-9, that have a combination of guns (2x23mm + 1x45mm) the cannon disappears during the game.  This only, but always, seems to happen if destroyed.  Upon respawn- no 45mm.  I have seen it with other 'combo' gun planes.  Has it always been that way and I am just coming to?  Or is it just me--in which case I need to talk to admin.

I just tried it with Ki102  -- same thing... played 3/4 game, shot down, respawn with no 57mm.

File a ticket, include the replay file and any screen shots you can grab of that being the case if possible.

I've never had that happen, but that would... really tick me off.

Visually not there or it doesn't shoot?

Never had it not shoot except if overheated, not really checked for the barrels ingame.


C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

When I hit left alt to show guns the cannons have disappeared and when shooting they do not appear to be there... quite a bit of dif between 20mm and 57mm.   And it only happens after being killed.  Doesn't happen on a single sortie game.

I have been noticing this lately.  I suspect the guns are still firing, they are just not showing up in the GUI when you hit left-alt.  

 

I was in a plane with something like two 15mm and two 37mm and the 37mm did not show up in left-alt view.  But, when I fired, I did see four tracers and vaporized some planes quickly.  

 

So I suspect the guns still work but the GUI loses the guns and is a bug.  Someone else want to confirm this?  Thanks.

I'll try my Ki-102 with cowling 57mm and wing mounted 20s.  Might be able to see.

Ok, that really sounds awkward. As White_Widow18 says, it will be great if you could record this issue somehow (a video, replay or screenshots) and submit a ticket to the Customer Care with logs of your battles attached.

"Big gun" planes have always had wonky hit reg. the i 215 was my most played tier 10 at one time and i only kinda got the guns figured out.

 

as for planes with mixed armaments bind gun group 1 to another key to fire the big gun only. that help you to get the feel for the big gun then open up with all.
