Yes it is hard to see, the size is ok but I think any dark color will be hard to see.....yellow or white or even a florecent green would be awesome. Having different sight options would be awesome too, even if they had to be purchased to upgrade different colors and styles because each player is going to have their own prefference.

I agree. A couple options that could be purchased is a great idea

Not a bad idea

On the twitter feed it says that an auto translate has been added to all comms in the game. Does that mean the in game voice?

I second grandpappy regarding target color. It mixes with red bracket of enemy plane. Kindly chage color of either one and nake target color more bolder.


Zup I'm adding three screenshots of target circle merging with players name or color. Try to locate the target circle and if you can't try to enlarge the view to see it.

Imagine the condition in full motion game, especially with speedster(s) WWII planes, as there are only screenshots. It's really make me like colorblind and it will be going more tough for players above 50+. Most of the time I was shooting elsewhere in close combat fights as I'm unable to locate aiming area.

Please do consider this is next update if you think it's genuine request.

Secondly, sometimes speaker icon doesn't appear at all. Not always but around 40% times.

I'm on Windows 10 PC, using windows Store and on latest DF elite update

I play on a windows tablet with the fire button on the right.
Now the throttle and brake swap sides. No problem, except that the touch point for the brake didn't move with the button, its still where it use to be on the left.

Windows 10 Toshiba Sat Laptop.

If you try and open a practice mission to practice with new scope, game locks up and needs to be closed and reopened to play.

The Windows store app has extremely smooth fluent flight and movements. That said hits are not registering accurate or consistant. Head on shots wont register till close enough that crash is inevitable. Leading planes seems fine when shooting from a higher elevation then opponent. But when in a cross fire situation, seems varied when you will register hits. Could be lag but not sure.

Steam has not updated sites as yet. Still red scope. Plane and screen rate is far more jumpy. Plane seems faster as well in turn fight. This is the strange part. Kill rate is much higher then windows even though the play much more jumpy and ragged. Kills as in taking down the opponent.

Biggest bug seems to be chasing a german plane into your base. German Plane is not registering hits even if you have hiim dead to rights. I have seen other players have the same experience.

All in all great work Zup. I thought I should bring these issues concerning different platforms as accurately and unbiased as possible.

Yup Cypher, I experienced the same thing today when chasing a german plane into base and I too saw others having issues. I almost have to put the blame on lag though because there are a few certain players who lag, skip and disapear every single day and they know that no one can hit them because evryday the blue team informs them. I also want to say lag because the very same players were next in allied planes and the same thing happened with same players......anyone else other than the laggers I have no problem with bullets registering. Guess there isnt much anyone can do bout someone elses connection or lag issues so I just take it for what it is. .If anyone tells me im skipping i exit the game and reboot my device and router, clear the cache or make sure there are no background apps constantly runnin then i return to the game, i see many others do the same or they just quit and come back later. There are also features that you can turn on or off in your developer options on phones and tablets to maximize gaming, i kno every and every android has these options and to unlock them open the system settings, then scroll down to where it says about phone and open it, then go down to where it says Build Number and tap it as fast as you can for a couple seconds and you will get a notification that your developer options are unlocked.

no, no automatic translation inline voice but that's easy to solve on mobile: instead of speaking, press like you are going to type, then use the microphone on the phone keyboard. The phone will automatically convert to text your voice... send it. The server will translate that text to everyone.

Lag is not solved by a reboot unless your machine is downloading some stuff or has a virus and the reboot somehow kills it. Lag is just connection speed BETWEEN 2 points. When people complain that people is lagging and the other person knows it and taking advantage of it, they fail to understand the basic concept of what lag is. To the other person YOU are lagging and YOU are taking advantage of it. You see, if you see the other guy jumping like crazy, 99% chances he sees you the same way.
Lag is like if you are in USA and the other guy is in Australia. And then you tell the guy in Australia: I'm closer to you than you to me! Stop taking advantage! The guy in Australia will reply: I'm fine, why are you so far away from me? I'm so much closer!

On the latest release there was a bug that would lock the game if you play the practice mission. It's fixed and sent to android/kindle. I'm sending it to Windows Store and then i'm uploading to all other platforms.

Agree on that cypher


It seems to be something with the hitting points like bullets dont register when hitting the plane... and if shooting on distance in an angle its impossible to calculate were to aim infront of the plane... its more like aim directly at the plane not need to calculate the time bullet have to travel true the space before impact... its like the distance between planes dont excist.
The bullet trace are more stright dont bend anymore and seems to fade away its like to have a long stick infront of the plane and try to hit the target with the top...

Feels like you are trying to lance your opponent ... or catch a fly buzzing around with a tweezer

Ah ok....I understamd, I kinda knew what is behind the cause of lag....I was just mentioning things that seemed to help or make a difference in game play whether it be connection issue or a device issue. Maybe no one actualy takes advantage of having the ability to be invisible and bullet proof, it just seems to be in the laggers favor especialy when im behind them and in good position to shoot and they disapear, 5 sec. later they reapear behind me and shoot mw down, its also easy to assume theyve crashed when they diapear so after looking around and not seeing them I move on to their base or carrier and the next thing ya kno they won the game because theyve manage to get by the enemy unseen - . And he may see me the same way i see him but that is also is in their favor because they know that when they cant see any other players that they are invisible and as long as the lagger can stiil see the map he can stil bomb hangers and carriers and can stil pick up a flag.
Realy isnt an issue with me , i experience the bare minimum of lag. I just know that lag is everyones worst enemy right now and I see alot of posts asking exaxty what causes or whatcan be done to help. Thanx for expalining a little bit bout what to deos cause it.

Well I never said that rebooting a device will fix lag, but if there are background apps and processes running rebooting a device can be brought back up to speed by rebooting which will help reduce lag....Im not a PC player but lag isnt limited to just connection, though you are right about the lagger seeing me as I see them. However, the lagger would be a fool to think I was taking advantage when he is the one that bullet proof and disapears for half the distance between bases, only a fool would think im taking advantage when 10 hits register on screen and they thrn around and stil shoot me down! Lol.. It is what it is, i have fun regardless and as long as there are little things i can do to my device to help minimize lag then thats fine, the game play is smooth on my end ,its just the enemy disapearing act that is annoying. For any Android users, i heard that an app in the play store called LagFix that is a good place to start with getting your device up to speed for online gaming.

Hey Zup, been in 3 train missions today that had no train. There were several players that searched up and down the track and forsure wasnt there. Everybody continued on in a dogfight and when one person reached 10 kills it said we won....the other two times there was only a couple players and we exited so didnt get to try the 10 kill thing again...
