How to control plane mode?

Whenever I transform, the plane can only go downwards. Is there any way to control the plane so it doesn't automatically dive-bomb?

Since I couldn't resist people who are in need :roll: ... I decided to do this :o . I did this just for you (how great is that :o )

Well, good luck on maneuvering the jet or plane :wink: .

Thanks for showing me how to control the Rube Goldberg plane. :roll: Why not just control it with up/down? That makes more sense to me.

Because those buttons are already mapped to controls - namely, going forwards and backwards.

Planes go backwards? Isn't that physically impossible? (well, at least impossible to do that and not make it drop like a rock)

As in, moving towards or away from the screen.

Forward and Back

Here's the picture if you can't test it in the game. :?

Going forward...

And by going "back," he means this...

at that same time, you dont have to hold z or v as long as you are holding one or more of the direction buttons.

Yep. Here's a simple but detailed way to do it: 8)

1. Do a Boost Dash (TAP "Z" twice).
:arrow: No need to hold "Z" if you hold the directional buttons.

2. While boosting, transform (TAP "V" button)
:!: Holding Z after transformation will immediately move your plane UP
:!: Holding V after transformation will immediately move your plane down
:arrow: So if you want a steady flight, just hold on to any of the directional buttons

3. Control with the directional buttons (Moves forward/backward/left/right) and Z/V buttons (Moves up/down)
:arrow: Yes, pressing back will make the plane move backwards. It takes a short "delay time" to turn though.

NOTE: You can maintain transformed boost AS LONG AS
:arrow: One of the controls involved in BOOST DASHING/TRANSFORMING is held (directional buttons/Z button/V button)
:arrow: You have enough Generator gauge to fly. Obviously.
:arrow: You are not hit by any enemy fire. Pretty Obvious!

Understand? :?:

Plane mode in bootfighter is merely your unit going faster in the direction you are holding while holding an altitude that you set yourself. The controls arent like that of a plane, but more of you telling your unit to go in a certain direction from your point of view using the arrow keys and using the JUMP/BOOST button to raise altitude and using the SHIELD button to go down.

also ryujin can you set that large image up there as a thumbnail, the size screws up the boards...

Now the real question is, "were you able to do it?" :?:
