Hi Guys,

I am running ARMA 2 OA ver. 1.63 through steam installed after ARMA 2 CD addition that has been patched to 1.11.
When flying attack helicopters I use tab to select target and the AI selects the target with hellfire missiles. I don't get target lock and when I order fire the missile it just flies strait.

When switching on manual fire the missile will fly correctly and hit the target.

Is my AI falling asleep or am I doing something wrong. This is highly annoying as I would like to play the game properly and not using the Manual fire.

I have no mods active.

How do I fix this short of reinstalling the game through steam. ( I am not sure this will fix things and secondly my internet wont allow a second download this month.)

This happens to me at times but maybe the AI is not functioning correctly due the way the game was made. Most of the time you should try targeting it twice or if your in a group just use the group command to target it.
