Has anyone else lost the A-20 bombsight? Went for a flight in TAW earlier and when pressing LShift+V remained in the pilot's seat.. Tried in quick mission,  same result. Tried Pe-2, He-111H-6&16 and Ju-88 and  got a black screen with "waiting for data", when  I pressed Esc the sight appeared under the quit options. Any ideas?

No, just tested. All fine

I had other issues yesterday. Check your settings and reboot. That helped me 

flew a. Ju 88 sortie to check my issues earlier today and all fine there too

Most of us fiddle with that game.  But we only talk about it in a specific topic. ED is much more strict that way.

Did you program [LShift] + [V] in your key mapping? I left it as simply [V] and it works fine. Just checked after today's hot fix.

No joy. I removed and reinstated the stock keybind just to make sure, restarted Windows and still got the same problem. Keybind just gives black screen and "waiting for data". Pressed Esc with no response then had to go to task manager to shut down. Not very computer savvy so completely baffled!

I experienced the black screen and "waiting for data" IF I unpaused a QMB sortie then immediately pressed [V]. If however I unpaused and allowed the text "You are good to go" to leave the screen THEN pressed [V] it worked normally.

 

I'll test some more.

 

[edit] With another Hot Fix, played missions in Havoc Over the Kuban and another A-20 project in the works by Gambit21. The bomb sight is working normally, except for the quick attempt in QMB (before "You are good to go" times out).

I have many HOURS of flying from Florennes at night during Christmas 1944, around Bastogne and along the Rhine.

Gambit sure found a great tester. I am a huge fan of Havocs over kuban. I long for the P 47 campaign and now a new Havoc campaign. I really enjoy the A 20

This is weird! I did what you said and yes, if you wait until "taxi to the runway" fades and then press V it works OK on Heinkels, Ju-88 and Pe2s but not the A-20. I still can't get the bombsight on the Boston. I can't figure why it works all right on the others but not the A-20. ( I've reset all the key strokes to default by the way).

A-20's does not work on the ground that I have seen.  Works fine once airborne.

Operator error!! I usually set up the sight en route but I thought I'd do it on the ground before T/O and could see why the sight wouldn't come up. Works OK in all the others on the ground and OK in the A-20 in the air. Anyway, problem solved. Thanks for the tip. Cheers!
