Well, I do have to admit, in 5+ years of flying LOMAC, they've only saved me 2 times, but they're still cool... Once I knew the fight was down to 1v1 a Flanker, I was totally blind, then I saw some tracers flash by in my mirror, hard bunted over and popped the brake, pulled up and got him with a heater. Then just last week same background, saw him in my top mirror and got away to reverse and gun him... at about 14 fps.
So I killed the mirrors, dropped the rez down a notch, but got to crank up the texturing and kick out the visual distance to max... now I get rates of 25-40 which makes for better, smoother guns kills. Only dips to the teens when I et within, like 100 ft of another jet. I got Jumper's cockpit mod so the mirrors still show. I needed that since I've sat in an F-15 cockpit and seen how big and prominent they are in the real thing.
So thanks, MFlyer- your suggestion worked and I'm enjoying flying much more now.
