Bug? Jester refusing to switch to P-STT


Recommended Posts

Bug: Jester refusing to attempt to switch to P-STT when commanded. Jester will not switch even after responding with "Roger that" or similar phrases.

 

Can I reproduce it 100%: 75-80%, someimes he does it once and it will work, sometimes it never works. Most of the time I am able to (or attempt to) lock 1 single target with P-STT when I tell jester, but he will never be able to do it again, with the same target or another one at futher, similar, or closer range. (NOTE: This seems to mostly be happening in MP, but it has been happening to me in SP aswell).

 

NOTE, I know that P-STT is not supposed to be used at long range, but the point is I atleast want jester to attempt a P-STT lock even if it will fail. This due to the fact that a human rio can try as many times as he wants, why cant jester do the same?

(HOWEVER; jester autoswitches to P-STT in close ranges 80% of the time)

 

 

How to reproduce/ description:

 

Step1: When having a target on TWS or RWS, tell tester to attempt a PD-STT lock on said target.

 

Step2: Tell jester to switch to P-STT

 

Step 3: Jester should just say "roger that", but never attempt said P-STT lock (What he will do most of the time is listen and carry our your order once, but never do it again)

 

Result: Jester will tell you "roger that" but will never attempt a P-STT lock, even if conditions are favourable or not. In practice, he ignores your request.

Can confirm. Iron Mike acknowledged it back in December as well. Hopefully it gets addressed at some point.
 

 

Damn, that was a long time ago they acknowledged it. And yeah that post pretty much sums up my experience here too, hopefully this gets fixed soon...

BTW, how does one prevent Jester from switching to P-STT automatically when close to 10NM? It usually ends in a loss of lock 😕

Current modules:

FC3, Mirage 2000C, Harrier AV-8B NA, F-5, AJS-37 Viggen, F-14B, F-14A, Combined Arms, F/A-18C, F-16C, MiG-19P, F-86, FW-190A, Spitfire Mk IX, UH-1 Huey, Su-25, P-51PD, Caucasus map, Nevada map, Persian Gulf map, Marianas map, Syria Map......ah yes, forgot the Super Carrier! Shows you how often i fly these days....

Modules in waiting: MiG-23, A-6, F-4U, F-8, Falklands Map

Wish list: South East Asia map, F-4J/N, F-15A/C, Su-27, Sea Harrier FRS.1, Mirage III, MiG-17.

There is a tickbox in the special options for the F14.
