View Full Version : no ship aa?

10-30-2004, 04:05 PM
i just got my campaigns up and running and iv attacked a enemy carrier force and had mine atacked and in both times no ship ever fired any AA of any kind? any thing that i need to set or change to make this work.or is it a known problem.

any ideas?

You are obviously one of the stealth fighters.

(which means, no, I don't have a clue.)

10-30-2004, 04:44 PM
I've read it's possible to turn ship AA on or off, I haven't figured out how though...

By adjusting the sleep time on the ships aaa you can control how long before it starts firing.

You can make ships 'sleep', i.e. not fire, for a certain amount of time after the mission starts, when you are making missions in the Full Mission Builder, but he's talking about a campaign.

well in the quick mission battle when ever i attack the japanese carrier it or its escorts dont start fireing untill well after iv made my first pass then thay start fireing. but yes in the campaign no ship fires a shot. wich hurts becouse ill have me and maby 5 or 6 others tring to defend our carrier who doesnt fire any aa aginst 20 enemy fighters.iv only attacked one enemy carrier in campaign and it to did not fire a shot at me

i have the same problem as you i can shoot down british planes on there carrier and nothing came from them.

sucks hu? i hope this is a problem the devs are aware of.i tried to report it as a bug to the web address 1c gave in the read me but all i got was a page can not be displayed msg.

Iv even tried enableing 3dgunners in the config. and while i can see sailors maning the aa guns thay dont seem to know how to shot them.
by the way if it makes a deffernce, i am useing the FB+AEP+PF install i would try to uninstall and then reinstall the game but between the 3 of them i dont have an extra week to kill lol.

if any one knows any thing Please clue me into it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. its much more than an small nag it really takes away from the game alot.

I think it has to do with friendlies in the area. If there are any, they hold fire, but as soon as
you're all shot up, frames come down as the AAA lights up!

Had an Iwo Jima mission where 30+ Japanese fighters and torp bombers roll in. Once our
measly 8 defenders were in our `chutes, the fireworks began! 8 or so of them were in range,
and were all trailing smoke and going down inside of 30 seconds...

could be.i will test on mine to see if that works for me or not. thank you for the advice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

On our last COOP (something like 8vs8), all 3 red human pilots (taking off from red carriers) got shot from red AAA while still chasing blue aircrafts.
Very stupid, I hope the stupid AAA-gunners get court-martialed one day (Patch #1?) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

ok i just tried it in campaign.i followed a few zeros back to there carriers by my self seeing as the enemy carriers were not wear thay were supossed to be and my flight of bombers AI's turned back after geting to the way point.once I got to the enemy carrier i waited for the zeros to land and disapere. i then made a few pass's over the enemy ships blazzing away with my lil .50s after 2 min i had not been shot at once. i then land on the enemy carrier. no kiding. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

just did a full uninstall & reinstall.tried both aep+fb+pf and just PF. installed the beta patch as well.still NO aa suport in campaign. ground AA and aircraft AA both work well just not on the ships.I cany figure out what is wrong.also plane is still blowing up at the start of some missions ...go figure.never had any of these types of problems with FB or AEP.

Well I`m playing the Seafire campaign and I`ve had to turn the detail right down because of the frame rate hit of all the AA fire.
Last mission I was just coming in to land and the big guns on the carrier and all the light stuff lit off and a few seconds later two zeros splashed down next to the carrier.
