R1 bugs and workarounds (initial release)


Recommended Posts

On mission 3, prior to 2.7 update I was able to refuel with the tanker and continue on with the mission as planned. Even AAR the second time. Unfortunately I never got to finish the mission as the whole area lost power as I was 20 miles out from Mother. Got around to playing the mission again finally post 2.7 update, however my wingman Nail 4-2 will connect with the tanker alongside me, but he will not disconnect from the tanker at all. I restarted the mission, same thing happened.

 

Also, some radio messages do not come through as before, or they will come through several seconds after Flip has replied.

Experienced this with mission 4, wingman connected first to the S3 and wouldn’t disco.

Thanks, I will check. It may be the AI refuel bug ver 2 - as it has been fixed before. Thanks for reporting!

Hi,

 

has this already been fixed?

I got this refuel bug once in Mission 2 and get it now again in Mission 3 during the first AAR with Exxon. Smoke refuels forever.

 

The campaign is great from what i have seen until now. But i don't like to play the campaign with this happening all the time. It's quite frustrating. :(

Is there a fix incoming or some kind of workaround?

 

Thanks.

 

Sile

This is weird as I cannot reproduce it. For me they refuel normally, I also tried to build a new simple mission to try to see if this happens - but so far wasn’t able to. I’ll keep trying. 

 

Thanks for your answer and tests. DCS is a complex beast so probably weird stuff is happening.

And i shouldn't complain too much, since i'm flying in open beta. But who doesn't want to enjoy the clouds... 😉

I saw something about AI never ending the AAR as being worked on, so perhaps this will be solved soon. I will check.

On mission 10, the SA-15 isn't being destroyed. Then others say "missile launch" and say it doesn't appear to be tracking, but it actually is tracking. Kills me even when I go defensive because it actually launches two missiles at me when I'm right above the sight. Not much I can do to pass this mission, so this seems like a bug?

I've edited the logbook.lua file for Mission 3 in an attempt to skip the refueling as shown:

 

                 [3] =
                        {
                            ["stage"] = 3,
                            ["mission"] = "R1 M03 ALT A.miz",
                        }, -- end of [3]

 

When I launch the mission from the main menu, it replaces the ["mission"] = "R1 M03 ALT A.miz", with ["mission"] = "R1 M03miz". I can't seem to figure out how to make it launch the mission from the Alt A.miz version.

 

Any tips?

On my to-do list for the next update, thanks!

I also have problems in mission 3.

 

First time i got shot down so i played again skipping to the first refuel part. On the way back after the mission my wingman ejected after running out of fuel before we got to the tanker. Then i played again skipping to the rtb part, this time my wingman went back to the tanker just before landing and endlessly refueled there. Many planes stuck on the deck so i almost crashed to them landing, got only 90% score and no "mission complete" text.

 

My wingman also refused to shoot the escaping car, he just continued to fly forward.

Unfortunately I am afraid the AAR bug for the AI is back (having been fixed several times before)… at this stage i would advise to just skip M3 and move on, unfortunately I have very limited options when it comes to controlling the AI and saving them from running out of fuel…

It worked perfectly on the way to the mission area, but problems on the return trip. One failsafe could be that everything keeps working OK even if the wingman ejects or gets stuck on the refuel plane, so that the mission script keeps going if AI gets stuck for too long or dies.

 

Is player getting shot at in mission 3 intentional? Second time he shot my wingman and it missed even he didnt try to evade at all. I assumed im supposed to fly over the town at low altitude on that point and honestly had absolutely no chance to react because the missile came out of nowhere. It felt like a trap tbh. Flying higher up it worked fine. Needless to say it is very frustrating after being 2 hours in to the mission.

 

But overall no complaints, so far this campaign is the best thing i've ever played in DCS!

Im stuck in mission 6. I get the radio call for the tower telling them we are coming, but after that nothing happens. No matter how much i keep pressing spacebar next to the carrier it doesnt kiss clam off, im exactly at 8:00 about 100 meters left of the carrier. Any ideas?
