View Full Version : MY LASER WAS WORKIN FINE
Nov 17 2001, 14:41
Ok i had the laser workin fine .........i could see the red dot and my bombs were dead on target.........i came to my map today got out the laser designator targeted a tank but i see no red dot now and it boots me back to desktop no error message ....
i cant understand because i havent installed any unofficial addons or changed any of my settings
its just my laser blackop all of a sudden this problem
has come from nowhere.........ive reinstalled 3 times [correctly] by using the right order of patches 1.20 then 1.30 WHAT THE #### IS GOIN ON
this is a pic what i took before this myserious bug got me
as u can see my red dot was working[btw it looks bright cos i altered it for easier viewing]

This seems like a new problem,
Because you have uninstalled 3 times it might be the patch you downloaded..... re download see if it still happens

Yep i just had the same idea ......settings /control panel /here i come[again]
Nov 17 2001, 15:59
aagggggggh i just redownloaded both patches .........applied them succesully but still when i
left click on a target with the designator i can count to 3 then boom back to destop..........also my kiowa laser is also doin the same thing now
yesterday i thought it was this ......i downloaded devils unofficial breaching charge [which also uses the day blackop] and i was convinced that his blackop had overwrote my laser blackops code [or whatever]
so i deleted the addon but i still have this problem
thats what brought me to reinstalling again im back to square one and i want my f&%ing laser dot back

RIGHT ..........i even tryed this ...........i deleted my LASER GUIDED.PBO from addons and i got my brother to send me his a copy of his LASER GUIDED PBO i put it in my addons and i still have this problem

Any of you try a FULL reinstall? Uninstall OFP then delete EVERYTHING from the dir, install OFP and get everything again?

Whoa! Hold! Stop!
Without going into details with explaining my whole procedure install/uninstall/reinstall, i went from 1.20 to 1.30, and NEVER had any reddot in the laser sight, just the white diamond designator icon.
Naturally, they LGBs, Hellfires and all the other taxpayers missiles are on a random killing spree, killing all sorts of local Malden, Everon and Kolgujev plant species.....very sad indeed.
