hi, i just wanted to know why sometimes the simulator encounters a problem and is forced to close when i hit the F10 key (which is the map key) while im flying? i use that once in a while to locate some long range targets when the Radar Warning System doesnt pic them up... saves me a little fuel. thanks for the help guys
This link has some cool maps (and airbase diagrams) you can print out.
It is a known bug that overuse of F10 can crash Lockon for some folks. Best advice - stop using F10, after all, it is not realistic to see a map with all the bad guys marked on it. What some folks do is print out a copy of the maps (link above), laminate them and then before flying a mission, they read the mission briefing and map then use a marker pen to show known enemy/friend positions. Makes it more realistic.....
If there is an AWACS in your mission, then use your radio commands to ask the AWACS the BRAA of the nearest bandit.
