Author Topic: Another CH question...

In the Comanche, I've noticed that the
waypoint lines and markers in the scrolling map MFD display sometimes are there and sometimes aren't... what is causing this? I thought it might have had to do with weapons arming but even if I hit weapons safe the line will not come back...

Don't have CH yet (counting the days) but this sounds similar to a problem I had in AH. What was happening was that the ASE MFD page was automatically coming up and overriding the TSD when a threat was detected. The TSD and ASE look somewhat similar, but the ASE doesn't display waypoints.

If this is the problem, you should step through the MSD pages until the TSD is displayed, and hopefully the waypoints will be visible.

The only other thing I can think of is that you may have the TSD declutter level set such that nav info is supressed.

Hope this helped.

hmmm that doesn't seem to work... any other

I also had a funny thing happen just now...
I was reconning a FARP and generally ripping
into it destroying Hind after Hind when a
quick sweep over it in the FLIR revealed
no real threats so I moved in to finish it
off with my rocket pods...

As I pop over the hill I notice 2 blackhawks
flying into the same FARP and rocketing a
few things, hover awhile, then take off.

Well, I get over the airfield and suddenly
I lock up some infantry. I begin to pound
them with rockets, but they're taking the
damage in stride so I switch to guns... Right
when my first gun round hits I get a 'You're
hitting a friendly unit!' and low and behold
the infantry had been dropped off by the
blackhawks to take the base. My rocket attack
had killed all but one of the poor bastards
but he luckily took the base. I love this

Make sure you havn't selected target declutter level on the TSD. This will remove the nav info and only display targets, alternativley you can display only the nav info and no targets or everything.
D and SHIFT + D switches declutter modes.
