View Full Version : Anti-Aircraft

Whenever I am attacked by Aircraft, the only one who can use the ack-ack is me. Why is this? It will not work through AI, ie, I can order the watch officer to fire at will etc, he responds with the usual yes sir but nothing happens, even if I go to manually assign a crew and use a specialised anti-aircraft gunner, it doesn't work. I have to go there myself. The deck gun does not have this problem. Does anyone know what this could be? Oh yes, even going through crew on deck, or, air attack mode doesn't seem to help either.

At least sometimes...
I have the IUB mod installed.

I'll take it you've set the type of a/c (receding/approaching - bombers/fighters) to shoot at. The game is pretty doff inthat if these are not right, the gunners will 'wave' at an attacking plane instead of having a go at anything that looks dangerous.
Also the Range settings are modified with the type of weather. For example Long Range on a clear day might be 4000m, but on a very 'muggy' day it might be 2000m, and at night 500m.

Wow, you guys were really fast with your replies, thank you all. The flak gunner bug link helped and has solved the problem, although i have to do this each game/mission, it is a small price to pay considering how bad a shot i am on the flak guns. Got any ideas on evading the armed trawlers? The destroyers can be evaded but the trawlers seem to stick like glue to me, even if i back-track my course and slowly reverse away, so do they
