In arma2CO my controls are fine, I noticed that when in a humvee and in the gunners position, I was unable to look behind the ironsights of the gun, just the top of the gun, same goes for a humvee with a tow, and a Russian insurgent offroad truck with a dshkm, havent checked any others out but those dont seem to work.
Had a friend complaining about the same thing.

This is with Arma2:CO Patched to 1.59

Thing is, that the "scope" key double binding on RMB does (for whatever reason) not work with every vehicle gun, but when you hit the default keyboard binding, it always works, i.e. NumPad 0 - try it out.

The correct thing would be to report that the RMB scope binding does not work for all weapons...

According to the arma2 manual, it says the NumPad 0 is weaponview, problem is I dont use default keys, and theres no such key in the controls that say "weapon view" what key is it?

Updated by gunter about 6 years ago

Alright, I set all my controls to default and weapon view is the optics button, and i got it to work.
I guess this was just a confusion on my part on the controls, as there are a few controls that do some of the same things.
You can close this.

Alright, thanks.

Well, for me the problem named in the ticket is actual - with another vehicle, though.

  1. Open editor
  2. Put Independent->Takistani->Pickup (PK) with player as gunner
  3. Try switching to optics (Num 0, default config).

Result: screen blinks black (as with normal optics switch), but the view is still "hip-shooting". Pressing Num Enter results in one-time "blink".

Darkwanderer: Please open your own ticket; comparing descriptions it's a different issue - also I can see the problem with that Pickup (PK), but the sights do change slightly; only the ironsight isn't done well.
