I have a strange problem that just started last night with KA-52 TA. After hitting Ctrl-M to arm my weapons, I do not get weapon info in my HUD. I can fire weapons, but I don't know which one I am using and cannot see my targets. My WO seems to be locking up targets, and my shots hit home but I cannot see any weapon info (ie what weapons I have selected or any target queue information) but can fire. Any ideas?

Good one, Sparrow, although I disagree about returning Ka-52 TA.

IvanHoe, are you saying that you used to have weapons info in the HUD and it has mysteriously disappeared, and the key command to bring it up does not now work, although it did formerly? That is bizarre, but may be related to the Ka-52 memory leak . (Just a guess - I don't know what kind of problems, beside a general slowdown, that a memory leak would be likely to cause.) If so, I don't know what to do about it, except maybe reinstall if a reboot does not fix it...

Sparrow, I DO intend on purchasing CH when it is out in the US. With THAT said, KA-52 is still pretty damn nice.

Anyway, I will try to uninstall/re-install tonight. Ctrl-M does give me the ability to fire, I just don't know what weapon I have currently selected or what target my WO has picked.

Ivanhoe, are you still able to change HUD modes from Nav to none to Combat?

I can that way. I swear that it automatically changed the HUD mode to weapons when I hit Ctrl-M. Guess I'm smokin something funny. Guess it must be the fumes from smoking BMP hulls.

Ivanhoe, I sometimes suffer from erratic controls after flying for awhile, I think this may have to do with a reported memory leak problem.

You must manually change to the combat hud by hitting the ; key. You will then see the weapons hud change based upon weapon selection. Weapons selection is cycled by either the backspace key or the joystick. Good hunting.
