F-15E V1.3 Radar Problem

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody,

 

I've installed the new F-15E Version 1.3 from the website and the radar lock will not actually lock. I can highlight a target but it will not engage an actual radar lock.

 

The F-15C and D MSIP versions work just fine but this is the only aircraft I'm having issues with.

 

Thanks for the help

Not having checked the download myself. I'm assuming this is in the avionics file. Some Modders designers make the radar on they're aircraft so that they can only use the lock function only works when you have the distance setting of the radar for example (and usually right) set to half the maximum radar range so if the radar has a max range of 160 miles you will only be able to use lock target when operating in 80 mile range setting. So the short answeer it's most likely not broken but working has design. If you don't like it edit the avionics file it's not very hard to figure out what things mean in this regard.

The radar works fine. You have something messed up on your end.

 

Here is me getting a kill with an AMRAAM in the Mudhen, in WOI.

Yes I see what you mean dave. I downloaded the Aircraft to check the avionics and STT is set to work on all 5 range modes.

So your problem shawnfergie must be something else.

Not sure if replacing the avionics file for the F-15C is the cleanest way to go about this.

Hummm... actually I think the avionics file is broken after all but easily fixed. Maybe you you overlooked this before uploading Dave.

 

[RadarData]

AvailableModes=SEARCH,TWS,ACM,GM

 

I think it should be:

 

[RadarData]

AvailableModes=SEARCH,TWS,STT,ACM,GM

 

(haven't tested it ingame)

my issue is that search and air combat would not actually lock onto a target more than .5 a second then lose lock. Aircombat would just shoot back and forth between lock and "no joy". All the radar mode would operate and show bandits, or anyhting else but I just couldn't lock to fire an AMRAAM or Sparrow

Maybe it's the WOE vs WOI thing. It say's in the read me it's ready for both but maybe being ready for one is causing problems in the other? I never messed with the WOI file structure of the avionics and just a bit in WOE. I'm preaty sure that correction I posted above should be needed for present WOE, WOV, SFP1 standards. but I could be wrong, and no Idea about WOI.

Ok don't know if anyone still following this but after testing my findings were this. The download works fine with WOI but not the other games at their present state. For it work you need to do change mentioned above to the avionic file. Having done that it will work in both WOI and the other games.
