Swarm Missiles Broken
Just reporting an issue introduced around the 9/16 nightly and that still exists in the 10/9 nightly where swarm missiles no longer work properly. When locking on and firing Tornadoes or Hornets, only 1 missile of the 4 fired go after the target (or in double-fire mode, 2 of 8 missiles). The rest of the missiles in the group go straight ahead in their typical wavy pattern like they were fired without locking on.

Is this a byproduct of the attempt to create multi-lock swarm missiles? (I happened to see this feature talked about in the code change description boxes of a few past Nightly executables)

Re: Swarm Missiles Broken
It's been reported and was the by-product of fixing another bug.
