    AlanSA reacted to c3k in [bug] US infantry don't know when (not) to use AT4?   
    @nikolai,
    Yeah, I figured out the stripping away of the assault team leaves the remaining team with the AT4s and the Javs.
    There are a few things seeming to be going on here. Like I hinted, I've tested this for years, and I thought it had been resolved. I'll go back behind the closed Beta doors and work on it there.
    The AT4 shows a range of 0 to 300 meters (point target) and the Javelin's is 75 to 2,500 meters. Their ranges overlap from 75m to 300m. This is the problem area. (Inside of 75m, only the AT4 should be usable...and used.) The desired behavior would be for NO AT4s to be used outside ~75m, if a Javelin is present in the team/squad. Fudging that ~75m up to ~100m would be fine to me (so it's not such a hard cutoff). So, enemy armor (IFV or MBT) inside ~100m, use the AT4s and anything else (absent a restrictive cover arc). Outside that ~100m, with a Javelin, no one should fire until AFTER the Javelin(s) engages the targets.
    ^^^
    That is what _I_ would like to see. I'm not sure if it's possible to code it that way. But, as I said, I'm ducking behind the Beta curtain.
    Thanks.

    I've been having numerous hardware issues these past few weeks but I did manage to scrape together the first draft of another H&E conversion...
    ... no prizes for guessing who made the original.
    The patch seems to be working well with the less than crack troops & various types of strange terrain features*... I will have to update the scripts text file again though (anybody using 0.96 will have to delete the scripts file if they've patched up).
     
     
    *We speculated that the flooded ditches effect might have been a bug however you only seem to get that effect if the underlying terrain is particuarly damp (muddy or marshy)... so it does seem to be a terrain design feature.

    For me, it is Fortress Italy with all the addons. It has the longest date range, from July 43 to May 45. It has the most number of different nations and the widest TO&E within the nations as well. The game also features the most diverse range of terrain of any of the games; desert, mountains, rural farms with wide open fields to tight vineyards, villages, cities, about the only thing missing is bocage. The game also has every possible weather condition to fight in; from scorching heat to freezing cold blizzards. 
    The best advice I can give tho is to pick the theatre you are most interested in and start there. Odds are, you will end with them all, so start with the one you are most excited about.

    Excellent thanks. Always interesting to see how other players tackled a scenario once you yourself have completed it. 
     
    In this case rather depressing given how few casualties you suffered in comparison to my effort. Although in my defence it was only my 3rd CMFI scenario.

    The bug has been patched and fix. The patches are being tested now to ensure nothing else is broken. 
    As one of the original people who pointed out the 4.0 HE bug (anyone remember the video?) I know that it can be frustrating waiting for a patch. But, I also know that the bug is 100% fixed, having played the patch that addresses the issues. The bug is squashed, and the patch is coming.

    AlanSA reacted to zmoney in is this the hedgrow bug v4????   
    I recently had a rage quit associated with the infantry movement bug. I had a squad of inf move into a building 30 ft away that was occupied by friendly troops. Instead of running straight through the back door they decided to run around the building to the front, and since this wasn’t enough to take casualties they decided to keep running in a big circular pattern before trying to run back towards the front door and all got mowed down. Also in just about every mission I play regardless of which CM title I am playing there is the odd bug where one member of the team becomes detached and just sits in one spot not following the rest of the squad.
     
    I seem to remember reading in one of these many infantry bug threads that this issue was resolved like a year ago but BFC doesn’t release small patches. I’d be willing to pay $10 for the patch so BFC if you’re listening hit me up because this is a very annoying bug especially if there is already a fix for it.

    AlanSA reacted to Vanir Ausf B in CMFI intel sharing bug?   
    I have to be careful because of the NDA. But essentially it's that units in real combat during WW2 did not provide a continuous play-by-play on the position and status of every single enemy unit they can see to every friendly unit they are in contact with. If they can actually see an enemy the enemy can at least potentially see them back, so getting on the radio to tell Lt. Scrub "you know that Panther that was parked next to the barn? It drove 120 meters to the southwest, stopped and killed 3 of my men. Thought you'd like to know" would usually not be a priority.
    If course that doesn't mean that sort of information was never shared in the heat of battle. A dismounted squad of Soviet tank riders that was just in LOS of a German tank is certainly going to tell the T-34 crew all about it when they mount back up. But the game doesn't do that. Personally I think the current model is too conservative to be of much use but that's just me.

    This must be a very difficult and scary time for this man, his family and friends.  I hope for all of them he is able to make a full and speedy recovery. 
    It has become common to attack people, both verbally and physically, who hold a different opinion.  As a result some think nothing of insulting a man suffering from a life threatening virus during a world wide pandemic.   This is probably also an example of why politics are discouraged on this forum.  People just can't be trusted to be kind (or at least not un-kind) to each other.  Even during a pandemic that could take any of us, our family, or friends.

    It is indeed present in all the titles but it affects all troops not just those that are panicked. Here's an example of Nervous troops running off after a grenade thrown by their own side explodes.
    I notice it fairly regularly with devastating results as an entire team usually gets wiped out as they run into the teeth of the enemy. Again not panicked or green troops. 
    I'm hopeful though it will be addressed with Fire and Rubble with it's focus on urban warfare which is where I find this bug appears most often.

    One element that has genuinely changed for the worse is the loss of ChrisND, and his twitch streams. Those were superb content, both in terms of engaging with the player base and highlighting upcoming releases. I can't make a claim that that kind of presentation is cost effective, but it's certainly missed.
