Does anyone else fail to get this to work in ArmA? Planck 00:23, 29 January 2009 (CET)

Yes.
Add W1(player),W2(ai),W3(ai),W4(ai) characters to a map, all grouped to the player character.
The leader is ofcourse the player and the formationLeader is the player.
Issue 'W4 doFollow W3;' and the leader of W4 is still W1 but the formationLeader of W4 is now W3.
If you then as the player via the command menu tell W3 to move fifty meters North W4 will trot off after W3.
doFollow is the silent version of commandFollow. Tested with ArmA v1.15 as above. -- Sy 08:23, 29 January 2009 (CET)
Ok, thanks, I was using a single unit not grouped with me. So, now I know both units need to be in the same group.
