Since the last patch, the 'Padlock' functions (Enemy A/C, Friendly A/C, Enemy Ground, etc) do not work in either SP or MP if the CUSTOM setting is used.

They do work in SP if NORMAL is used.

In CUSTOM, they work initially while on the ground, but shortly after T/O the function is lost and one is suddenly flying in Full Real Mode.

It would be interesting to know if any others have had the same experience, and if so, it could possibly be analyzed and corrected in the next patch.

Happens to me too.

Weird thing is, when in outside view it works fine.

No resolution/quality combination solved the problem.

This is forcing me to switch to outside view to track an enemy and then go back to cockpit view, since I don't like IR tracking devices or VR headsets, and I want to play without icons on the screen.

I don't know the game structure, but I'm wondering if there's some configuration file that can be tweaked as a workaround. Some way to trick the game into believing we're using NORMAL settings when it's actually CUSTOM, maybe.

Looks like this is not a new issue, btw:

Please, take a screenshot of the Custom settings where Padlock doesn't work.

No.

When in outside view, It works every time

In cockpit, almost never.

Sometimes I press the F8 key buy nothing happens, and after a minute or so it suddenly locks on an enemy plane.

Now:

What's in the cockpit view that Mr. Padlock doesn't like?

I initially thought my system couldn't handle the cockpit's complexity, misfiring the padlock function. But there's no stutter and the fps counter shows at least a reasonable 40.

Having started the topic, I found by accident that using the hat switch for views turns off the padlock.

In cockpit at beginning of mission, padlock works fine.

Once you use the hat switch to look around, you have lost padlock as seen from cockpit until restart

I have no idea why this happens.

just flew a mission in career mode and everything worked the way it's supposed to

 

accidentally used the hat switch to change view before padlocking on an enemy (habit) but everything still worked until end of mission

 

sorry can't be more helpful

I think it's not the hatswitch as such, but the two views, which are default I think: (1:  90 degrees) pilot looks right to wingtip and (2: 270 degrees), pilot looks left to wingtip, that may be the culprit.

I reset the HS to other, non-view functions, but have not yet been able to test in a Padlock server.

I'll know more in a day or two.

Thought i'd bump this as i'm also having some issues with the realism settings. I also find the padlock works inside the cockpit until I touch the hat switch, which is ok I now only use it to find an airfield to limp back to.  After fiddling about with the options though, the object markers or unlimited ammo won't reactivate with the check boxes.  Good training for dogfight servers maybe and quite immersive but i'm only a few hours in and need gunnery practice.
