Im new here but i greatly need assistance with a problem i'm having in a mission i am working on. The mission starts with 12 choppers flying over the desert loaded up with troops. 2 chinooks, 4 Blackhawks, 6 Hueys (map is the middle east one with the big city, starts with Z, cant remember the name, its included with OA). This part of the mission works just as i intended, they fly towards the air strip, a few are shot down, they land troops and take off. This is where the problem is. In stead of moving towards their way points across the city and fighting, they kinda sit around on the air strip and a few squads actually just run off in the exact opposite direction. A few guys do go into the city but only a little ways and instead of the entire unit going in theres maybe 1 or 2 from each unit and the others don't advance. Even the ones who do go in only go a little ways and then don't really fight or move up, they just kinda hang around. Sometimes a few go deep into the city but no one shoots each other, even when their 5 feet away. I have tried different waypoints with different behaviors, orders, etc. nothing fixes it. The enemy does engage the choppers though and a few rounds are fired between infantry in the beginning but then it stops.
What i want them to do is all the storm the city in their groups, not one at a time then not fight. Does unit size affect these things? I tried a similar setup on cherno, same thing, helis worked fine but troops derped out on me. If i break the guys into smaller units will that help? I have 2 units of 12. Theres about 90-130 enemies in the city and anywhere from 70-100 americans land (depending on how many choppers go down). My computers pretty good, I5, 760 graphics card, 8GB RAM, win 7, msi motherboard. Would RAM perhaps allow the AI to use more memory and function better? If all else fails of anyone knows some good AI improvement mods, please leave a link (only armaholic ones). If i can get the mission to work i will upload it. I promise it will be epic, sometimes hit choppers smash into another one and some crush buildings. That part is epic just to watch from your blackhawk. The city combat WILL be epic if i fix it, all the guys will storm into the city and fight T-stan army. I was thinking maybe they counter attack with mechanized/motorized infantry and push back the assault to the airfield. Then in a second mission you could roll onto the airfield which was barley holding ob with a handle full of delta force left defending it, then attack the city again.
thanks alot for any help you can offer and sorry for my wall of text
monkey,

It sounds like CPU bottle neck, the game only uses two cores.

A cache script may help.
