I love the top attack, but I've seen this several times now, both in our MP gameplay, and in SP mission testing in the editor.

TAB simply does nothing. Ctr-TAB switches between direct and top. Pulling the trigger in either mode does nothing. Yes, it's loaded. :-) Tonight in a mission they worked for a few shots, then stopped. Not every player has the issue at the same time. For instance, one guy had the issue at one point tonight, I took his firing position and confirmed that I could seek and lock on the target, we decided I would take the shot, but when I sighted in again from the exact same place, TAB didn't work any more. Poof, just like that.

Is there a known-fix for this? If not, Vanilla is just fine.... out goes the javelin pbo.

Thanks,

-Doc

You have the thermals on and are zoomed in all the way too right? I don't use ACE's AT often but that's what the documentation says.

Sometimes I like to think as I started the whole "earplugs" thing.

We had the same issue for a while, but it seems to have disappeared since the last update of ACE, don't really know why. Don't forget, as Wak said, to be in thermal view with full zoom, otherwise the lock don't work as expected.

But I think ACE has some troubles with launchers... AT are acting weird sometimes, but AA are even worse : since the last update our AA instructor is completely lost, he says that the lock seems to be fully random. And even with the lock, once the trigger pulled, the missile is going everywhere but to the target.

Went to the GitHub and checked javelin's history, this change happened with v3.8.3, so that migth have broken things.

That change shouldn't matter for too long though. With v3.9.0, javelin is getting an overhaul:
