random weirdness -- command problems.
I have an AI chopper in my squad that flies with me (im in a tank) for about 5 minutes then lands seemingly randomly and won't respond to any commands. It also appears to be totally random as to when you officially "conquer" an enemy base. Sometimes I get the progress bar, sometimes not. I have killed all the enemies surrounding a base and gone inside, only to sit there for 5 minutes and I don't gain control. I don't know if these are glitches or I'm doing something wrong.
UPDATE: When I relaunched the game yesterday, I immediately captured the town I was in and the game did an autosave. So some process must have been preventing the capture that was cleared upon reboot.
Still having problems getting choppers to follow me though.
