Thread: Dino's MB362 weapons selection switch?

  1. #1

    Dino's MB362 weapons selection switch?

    I'm eager to use TacPack in Dino's MB362 (I'm using the E model). No problems loading the weapons I want in the TacPack Configurator for the MB362 (e.g. gun and rocket pods). However when I go to select the weapon in the MB362, using my mouse with the rotary switch for FWD ARMT all I can select is either OFF or MSL, nothing in between. For instance, I want to have a go with the guns, but can't select them.

    I have the same problem with the STORES rotary switch (i.e. only OFF or JETT are selectable).

    Is anyone else suffering the same problem? Does anyone know a fix... or am I simply doing something wrong?

    I'm using v1.10 in Prepar3D v2.5

    BTW, I checked and rotary switches are working in other aircraft for me.

    I'm not having any trouble with this.

    I'll have another go.

    ...actually, as far as I can remember, the rotary selection switch does nothing in the sim.

    To select and fire a weapon, you just:

    -> enable the trigger (ARMT & CAM) - ON (ARMT&CAM)

    -> enable the Mastre ARM - ON READY

    -> enable GUN PWR - ON (if you want to fire any gun)

    -> ...and then select the station, which (if correctly loaded and armed) turns GREEN

    BTW, could you provide some instructions for using the weapons sight please? Many thanks.

    OK, so I got the sight switched on using the unmarked knob to the right side of it! Zero MILS seems to work fine for guns. What setting are best for bombs and for rockets? Also could this dial be changed to be rotary, rather than clickable, so as to making it quicker to change?

    Thanks again

    Oh and can we have a reflective rear view mirror option please?!

    Many thanks

    At the moment, I am struggling to find the time for flight simulation...
    I am quite happy with the 326... but it could be improved in some areas.
