128 Theater Radar Threat Ring Fix

Post by ranger822 » 2007-03-17 04:04:09

Here is a fix from Baldeagle:

In ordert to avoid a CTD in 128 theaters, comment out the Threat Circle options in the theater map popup menu (right-click).  To put them back into the menu, remove all the "#" in the

art<theater>\art\planner\map.pop file.

I don't expect that I will be able to fix any ATO mission creation problems resulting from the 128 theater's long range to target.  I would guess the effects of this problem can be decreased by not placing squadrons on distant airbases.

CCC also provided some ideas for fixing issues with 128 Theaters

"the long range bug- can also be compensated by increasing drop tank capacity, or ac internal fuel capacity. I think both are acceptable cheat...if ac can take off properly.  if not,  edit the weapon loadout to load FEWER store on ac, to reduce total TO weight."
