missile trouble

Hi again - started a new game w/ PU, although I had the same issue w/ just PR. When I start out by default I have 4 heatseeker missiles, correct? But they don't launch. If I sell them and buy dumb fires, they fire fine. Am I stupid? Or is it because I need to have a target locked before using the heat seekers? I was just trying to blast them into space w/ no target. You can do that w/ dumbfires. :roll:

Hmm... I don't think I ever tried that; but you're probably right; I think you do need to have lock. Either that, or maybe the missiles weren't selected; I think with W you scroll weapon firing configurations.

Strange. I can do that, fire missiles into space.

It could be that they have tweaked making it that you requie a longer lock now.

Michael, can you fire both heatseekers and dumbfires into space? I can only do dumbfires.
