I can't aim with mortars or artillery.
« on: 13-09-2020, 19:09:35 »
Hey lads,

I've always been wondering how people were so accurate with mortars and artillery guns.
I saw a video of a lad playing FH2 on youtube and saw he had a 2nd wheel in the aiming screen to see the aim direction. Unfortunatly i never see the bottom wheel.

Is it something i have to do, or is it my weird screen resolution? I've got an LG ultrawide screen with a 2560 x 1080 ratio. If there's no fix i'll buy a new screen, because then i might miss more then i realise.

Watch the screenshot below, this is how i see it :

Thanks in advance :D

From what I know someone has to spot a target first and only then you'll be able to see it from the mortar and aim at it. But I ain't sure.

Yeah it looks like your resolution is the cause.

Any 16:9 screen will do fine. I had a strange 21:9 screen which scretches the screen. That's why my buttom wheel didn't appear for me.

I don't think there's anything the dev's can do about it, its just that BF2 is an old game/engine. 21:9 screens came allot later. Gameplay overall was fine, i just missed out on artillery.

I've bought myself a new screen (not just for the artillery view ofcourse) because my old screen only had 75hz and 5ms. I got annoyed by the stretched screen as i mainly play older games, most of them didn't support that resolution/ratio :) also the response time and hz were bad for playing FPS.
