Wingmen Comms Broken in Part B of the A-10C Tactical Training Qualification Campaign
It has come to our attention that Wingmen comms are broken in Part B of the Tactical Training Qualification Campaign (missions TAC18 - TAC25). It appears that a DCS Game Engine update has caused the problem. The Wingmen still respond but there is no radio comms for them to acknowledge the orders. This makes playing those missions extremely difficult especially since you can't hear the "UNABLE" or "REJOIN" responses and no text is displayed. If you still want to attempt the missions you can assume they are using EMCON 4 (Emission Control Level 4 which means no radio communication or emitter use). The Wingmen will follow your orders (given via the function key menus) they just won't acknowledge them so it is still possible to complete the missions (the success triggers are geared around targets destroyed not which aircraft does the destruction). We are investigating a workaround and trying to identify the Game Engine update that caused the problem. Part A of the Tactical Training Qualification Campaign (missions TAC11 - TAC17) is still playable as Wingmen are not required to complete those missions. We apologize for the frustration this has caused many of you. We will post an updated Part B when we determine a workaround that allows the missions to be completed successfully in the absence of working Wingmen comms.
