I am completing a mission where you need to use catapults to destroy some towers, but after building the catapults, and manning them, they will not target the buildings??
This is frustrating to me as this is the only way to gain entrance....
Is there something special I need to do to get them to work??
Thanks in advance!!

Have you tried selecting a catapult then right click where you like it to shoot?

@ PCDania
Yes of course, that is how they all attack, but I never get an attack cursor with the catapults for some reason....
When I first loaded the saved game, they worked, but then my food ran out, and my entire population left, so I had to try again, but this time, all of a sudden, the catapults would not attack the towers anymore?? So, I tried restarting the entire mission from the beginning, but even then the catapults refused to target anything. I am starting to think that they are just for decoration or something. Either that, or there is some kind of bug involved.
On that note, it seem to be near impossible to feed these people, because they seem to want 10 meals a day. I have tons of bakeries(20) / mills(6), and wheat farms(8), but bread production still cannot keep up with how much they eat.
Back to my question though, is there some reason why the catapults will not attack anymore please??

Have you made ammunition for the catapults? You need to turn stones into rocks for the catapults else they will stop shooting after they have used the initial ammunition.

It's a long time since I played Stronghold so I can't remember if there is a bug related to the catapults.
