No copters in Mission Tipping Point
New, NormalPublic

Description

After we seized the range, we came to the town, and shot down some AAF soldiers, my squad-mates just went all the way to the north, and finally stopped at location 032068 (in game coordinates), not moving any longer, no matter what I did.

I checked out some videos online, a normal copy should trigger some helicopters overhead when the team takes the town but this is not happening in my game.

Hello.

Thank you for the report. Have you tried restarting the mission?

Hello.

Thank you for the report. Have you tried restarting the mission?

To restart the Tipping Point is just awful. However, I did try to restart the last part of it (The part that we strike back, taking range, town and airport) and it worked like described above.

That is odd, because I tried to recreate the issue with our internal and public build and it only happened once after that the mission proceeded as usual. From the tests that I did it seems that restarting or reverting the mission seems to fix the issue. We are still looking into it.

By "restart" you mean restart the Tipping Point mission thoroughly, and by "revert" you mean restart from the last part of Tipping Point, am I correct?

If so, I did try revert, but NO restart.

If you loaded the mission via saves then you just loaded the game.

You can either "restart" the game via Pause Menu > Load > Restart mission (Your difficulty)

or

You can "revert" the game which is in the campaign menu. Meaning from the games Main Menu go Singleplayer > Campaigns > East Wind > Tipping Point - When you open Tipping Point you should see in the lower right two buttons REVERT and RESUME, use revert.

Revert or Restart seems not acceptable to me, although my problem was solved by this way, plz fix this.

I have the same problem, exactly same situation and I do agree that restarting is not a "bug fix".

It has pretty much been confirmed that this bug is caused by having your original TeamLeader killed before the shooting range is secured. The next-in-line TL managed to inherit the waypoints leading to the final extraction point but only the original TL can trigger the AAF reinforcement event.

So reverting is not the solution, revert the mission then keep your TL alive is the solution.

Of course the more important part is for BI to fix this trigger logic.
