[EVO] Guidance type 1 and 2

Is there any difference between guidance type 1 and 2 in EVO?

I have noticed that people complain about needle missiles and SAD/SAE modules spinning in circles and they have guidance type 2 while hunter missiles don't which have guidance type 1. Nonetheless, I couldn't find any definitive statements and these efects could just be because of the seeker flags.

Ta!

Guidance type 2 is obsolete in EV Override. In Escape Velocity, it allowed for smarter homing projectiles, but in EV Override, you're supposed to always use guidance type 1 and adjust the other fields to control its homing behaviour. Use of guidance type 2 in EV Override can produce unpredictable results. I don't know how it came about that some weapons in EV Override use guidance type 2, but I believe it is generally considered a bug.

Thanks for the info.
