Close Combat Mode radar lock issues

Hi all !

I have been lately enjoying this fabulous module in on-line, close air to air dogfights.

 

I am unable to have decent control of what the radar is locking onto.

Typical procedure :

- Select special modes - bore mode and Magic2 missiles.

- Lock an aircraft that is inside the bore circle of the HUD.

- Unlock/release lock (with backspace).

- Let the aircraft go way outside the bore sensitive area.

- Activate bore mode again : The same aircraft is automatically locked again !!

 

I have similar issues with all special modes (horizontal and vertical), where I am mainly unable to release lock from the last aircraft and select a new one. I have to turn my aircraft way off the last target before a new one is selected/locked.

Imagine the frustration of having a friendly locked and a swarm of enemies running around you...

 

Please note that the missile's tracker lock/release is working fine, but without radar I have no distance information.

 

I have also noticed that any target above mine, is not shown in the radar when I start a climb with this target on the center of my HUD (with plenty of time for all scan lines to complete several cycles). Is the pitch of the aircraft ignored in the radar modelling ?

 

Many thanks for the help,

I would Love to be corrected as this is by far my best loved module.

 

Cheers !

Jep it's a long standing problem, nothing you can do about it right now (except moving the first locked target out of your radar gimbals by turning away). Maybe this issue could be revisited by the devs once the module gets fine tuned.

This is normal behaviour and works as intended. The radar is fixed to the horizon, not your aircrafts pitch or roll (within the gimbal limits of course). Pointing the nose doesn't move the radar cone. If you want to look up, use radar elevation.

Any news about this special modes locking issue? In a furball this gets hairy (harhar).

 

For the moment the workaround seems to be to turn your radar off and back on, from my experience it will then lock aircrafts inside the scan area.

Yeah, a status update on this one would be nice. This, to me at least, is a big ticket item

Folks a fix is now being tested.

 

The problem was that the autolock filter is using a fixed radar aperture, but the aperture changes with CCM mode. If the fix works it will be available on next update.

I remember when you first tried to fix it and said you would leave it until later since finding a solution was slowing you down in other areas, and I could not be happier to hear that there might be a fix on the horizon!

Great job Zeus, your work is much appreciated.
