When I try and use the artillery computer for the heavy artillery pieces, the "Fire" button is always disabled, and says "warning" on it no matter how far away from the gun I aim. I can still manually fire it, and mortar artillery computers still function properly.

Can anybody tell me how to fix it?

Make sure you're using the proper MODE. Each mode will draw a donut shape around your gun. Inside the inner circle you can't fire because the range is too short. Outside the outer circle you can't fire because the range is too far. However between the inner circle and outer circle you can fire at that particular MODE.

Semi (Close), Semi (Medium) and Semi (Far) are the MODES.

For the US M119 Howitzer:

Semi (Close) can hit between 4028-6266 meters.
Semi (Medium) can hit between 5887-9159 meters.
Semi (Far) can hit between 8973-13959 meters.

You can see this displayed at the top right corner as DIST MIN and MAX.

So make sure your guns are at least 4km away from your target zone in order to be able to hit.

Works now... must have been because I was on maps that were so small only the minimum range circle showed up (Takistan, and Desert). I did Chernarus, and I see both circles. I didn't know that the minimum range for them was THAT far. Thanks.
