View Full Version : Battle of Somato TOW accuracy
Apr 7 2007, 05:11
I gave up on getting the AI to fire (although wonder of wonders, the gunner in the other HMMWV actually took one out once out of 20 bazillion tries), so I've been trying to take out the BMP-2s myself. I consistently miss at all ranges. I'm talking less than 50 meters all the way out to 1,000 meters. I just can't hit anything.
What's the trick to aiming the TOWs? Low? High? Doesn't matter, you can't ever hit? http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/huh.gif
Can you tell I'm getting frustrated with this mission?

I spent some time in the editor, and I think I figured out how to fire the TOW successfully. It's not the most obvious thing in the planet until you remember how OpFlash handles guided missiles in general. http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/banghead.gif
Yep, that's right. I had forgotten to target the BMPs first. Once I did that, I was able to successfully take out targets up to about 275 to 300 meters. Accuracy drops way off after that. I was unable to successfully hit a stationary BMP at about 500 meters. Maybe if we get the appropriate level of optical zoom in the targeting mechanism?
BTW, I noticed another example of the infamous "no reload if empty" bug while I was playing around in the editor. I had parked an ammo truck in my test mission. I fired off all 6 missiles at targets, then drove over to re-arm. Wonder of wonders, the automatic reload wouldn't happen. Tried again after firing off 5 missiles, and I was able to reload just fine.

You have to get a target lock? Just press the space bar.

I know how to get my AI to get a lock on a target. http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/icon_rolleyes.gif
He then fires two rockets qwning two mobile armour. http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/smile_o.gif
After that he keeps saying "cannot fire". http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/crazy_o.gif
Is there an ammo limit in these TOW's?.. That I or we don't know of. http://forums.bistudio.com/oldsmileys/confused_o.gif
Also I have an AT specialist in my crew, when i succeed the 1st waypoint there's a group of enemy armour coming towards you.
He'll target the Tank and BMP, but also won't fire.
