I have just tried playing Afghan War Diary: TF Bushmaster:
http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=12117&highlight=TF+BUSHMASTER

but I am having issues with the Map. It does not seem to be working correctly. No targets show up on the map (no yellow indicator of the objective in the map), but there are the litte yellow symbols marking the location of the next task in the regular 3d gameworld view just not on the map. Also when I get to the part of the mission where I am suppose to call in an Airstrike, and the task says to "call in an air strike against the target indicated on the map" there is nothing indicated on the map. And I don't see a very strong enemy presence anywhere so I couldn't figure out where to drop the bomb, and had to give up.

I like the mission though, and the huge onslaught of enemies but it is unplayable without a working map. If anyone else experiences this problem please let me know so I can verify that it is not just my setup. Thanks.

Not all the objectives are marked on the map.Reason being to make it a little more realistic.I only added markers where I felt they needed to be to keep it flowing.When you have to call in airstrike on the mortar position use your lazer designator and look to the northeast for the sandbags,you'll then see the mortar.Hope this helps.

Okay, I will try it again, but I am a little skeptical, because:

TF Bushmaster was an excellent mission mate.
I didn't bother to read the wikileak article but you've done a great job making this immersive and seem true to what a real life engagement would consist of. The enemies were well placed, firefights long and stressfull, an all round great mission.

One bug though

@Component Actual

Looking forward to any other missions you release. :)
