Maybe restart your PC or re-download ksp.

Also you could get someone else to record.

This issue has been persisting for a few weeks now. I've restarted plenty of times and have even reinstalled it without luck. 

BoxOfStardust and Dundun92 are currently handling the recordings, but as I said, less people to record, so less videos.

Well can anyone record with mine

 

There are several aircraft ahead of yours in the queue. I'd record some, but my computer can't reliably handle a 3v3 battle with recording software running.

Gonna Replace the DV-7 with the Tiger 5

Also how do I use missiles

  1. attach a missile rail to your plane (technically optional, but recommended)
  2. attach a missile to the rail
  3. generally you should set missiles to deploy forward instead of lateral
  4. set the engage range to whatever you think is best (this is where testing against other planes comes into play)
  5. attach the appropriate targeting device needed for your missile (e.g. a radome or laser painter; Sidewinders don't need this)
  6. attach a weapon manager if you haven't already
  7. set the missiles per target to whatever you think is best (test this out also)

Thx

But @sturmhauke I want to know how to get the AI pilot to use them

The weapon manager is what makes the firing decisions, based on your range to the target compared to your weapon ranges. If you are in range for both guns and missiles, it tends to prefer guns.

Hey guys lets start this challenge for 1.7.x

Just modify the mods version files

You can also just modify the plane version files from 1.7.x back down to 1.6.1 and tadaaa, compatible most of the time. We're definitely gonna stick with 1.6.x for now, because bda in 1.7 has some issues. Hopefully those will get resolved and then we can talk about moving up.

@TheRandomGuy1029 Which planes are you entering into the competition? You can submit more than one if you want, but it seems you have withdrawn a couple and I'm not sure which ones you want in.

@sturmhauke I want to enter the Tiger 5 and the Benatard Fighter. The DV-7 had TONS of mistakes. Same thing with the DR-5.

 

BDAI seems to like the Benatard

@Joseph Kerman Im getting bored

As I said, I'm experiencing technical issues so I can't record anything properly. The others are exceptionally busy... We'll get there eventually but for now it's waiting time.

Analysis:

Welcome back to the land of Sidewinder Spam, and welcome back through the most egregious display of such.

Yes, I built the stupid thing to prove a point. 28 missiles inside this flying SAM launcher box thing.

Sidewinder spamming can be pretty random, but hey, statistics also exist, and you can skew luck by throwing more attempts at the problem.

The third match had an interesting conclusion, with two of the Missilebricks seemingly having their AI jam and not fire, allowing the last Du-11 to attack the one Missilebrick... which it somehow doesn't kill, and after running out of missiles and gun ammo, actually ends up getting killed back by the not-quite-dead Missilebrick.

Tough luck.

After being messily murdered in just three matches, the Du-11B-10 is relegated to the records section as Missilebrick takes the #5 spot.

Also, probably more important to note: the Elite Leaderboard now operates under new rules. 9 maximum aircraft reserve is now the new standard. Reinforcements are granted every 2/3 of a kill, meaning 1 kill = 0 reinforcements, 2 kills = 1 reinforcement, 3 kills = 2 reinforcements. And the calculator spreadsheet itself is now quick and easy to use, functions better, and looks better.
