Anyone else had this problem?
I have recently downloaded ACAH and it runs fine. On the first level I can get through the 3 TGT_LEAD aircraft and also use my 4AAM special weapons on the remaining aircraft. However, after taking down the first 4 aircraft using the 4AAM the sky clears and I end up sightseeing over miami! There are SU35s still engaging my allies but i can't target them. I just end up flying over miami enjoying the sights. I have turned off the steam overlay and sorted out the VCREDIST issue. Any help would be appreciated as I am on the verge of deleting the game..

i think i know what you mean i have beaten only objective planes(primary targets red on radar) and the other planes(green on radar) are removed from radar and targeting but are still flying about however they no longer enguage the player.

but it normally just takes a bit of scripted chatter on the radio for the next part of the mission to trigger.

so if the mission is not continuing it could be a broken script/corrupted or fragmented audio file segment that stoping the mission continuing.

First i would defrag your hard drive(s). And retest the issue.
Second thing i would try is deleting local content and manually deleting the game folder in your steam apps folder then redownloading the game and defraging again after install.

When downloading, installing or playing a game i allways ensure my anti virus is disabled the performance difference is significantly improved.

Dodge, thanks for that and will give it a go. Sounds pretty much like the problem i have. After I down the last aircraft that I can, I normally get some quip about ' the stories about you from iraq were true' and then nothing. As I ended up downloading the game over two sessions (work got in the way) it may be that one of the files didn't down load correctly.
Thanks for the advice and fingers crossed this will work.

Steam has a feature for checking the file integrity of the game files, without running any additional defrag programs or deleting the entire game. Right click the game in your library, select properties and in the same tab that has the "Delete Local Content", there should be a "Verify File Integrity" button, which will make Steam check of any files are damaged or missing.

fisk0 have checked the file integrity using the method you have mentioned (thanks). Worryingly the files are fine according to steam! May uninstall and reinstall just to see if that is the issue. If as Dodge says it is a missing audio file then that may help.

hey fisk0 thanks for your input but i too get issues with verify file integrity its not the fix all of steam games granted it has fixed a few problems but not all.

defraging is part of regular maintence (i do it once a week to once a month) and all sorts of problems will crop up over time if its not done.

Windows writes files in a very disorganised way and some large game files can be left scattered all over the hard drive that hits performance when reading that file especially on mechanial hard drives with some files failing to open.

Defraging is not a fix all either thats why i wish the guy luck

Other stuff that been known to fix game related problems is updating windows, manually updating game dependancys (like direct x and visuial c+),updating drivers, running on lower performance settings and the costly act of replacing old hardware.

As Dodge said " but it normally just takes a bit of scripted chatter on the radio for the next part of the mission to trigger.",,,further to that, you have to find and engage in DSM with The Shark, once you do, he will do a counter measure on you, damage you and then break off, at which point you have to land the jet and so ends that mission! I believe you fail the mission if you don't do a DSM with him,,ie: you somehow kill him with out doin a DSM.

Thanks guys have verified the files and taken off the steam overlay and after one or two freezes the game appears to be working, at least I have now got as far as the first Apache Mission although I gave that a rest last night as I got shredded a couple of times. Gotta keep movin'. :0)
