[REPORTED] BUG 1.2.9. - AI Ka-50 fails to attack with gun


Flagrum

Recommended Posts

An AI Ka-50 fails to attack targets with the gun. Instead it does the run in but when it should start shooting, the gun barrel moves around in circles as if it tries to make scrambled eggs but doesn't fire a single shot.

 

To replicate: set up a waypoint "PERFORM TASK: 'Attack Group" with Weapon "Cannon".

 

This error is new in 1.2.9 - re-tested it under 1.2.8 and everything worked as expected (i.e. all enemy targets dead). AI skill seems to make no difference, tested with "Average" and "Excellent"

 

Maybe there are other attack types affected by this bug? And/or other aircrafts? Can someone else check this perhaps?

I can confirm this - and the same goes for Mi-24V - it also only moves barrel in circles and does not shoot. On the other hand the Mi-28N works well. I haven't tested others.

If the devs are reading - maybe it is helpful, but the problem seems to lie in the file \bin\WeaponsBase.dll, I have replaced it with a file from an older 1.2.8 version and AIs fire their guns from KA-50 and Mi-24V just fine, once I put back the 1.2.9 WeaponBase.dll they are not able to shoot.

I can also confirm this.

 

EDIT: This should be moved to the bugs subforum.

I can confirm this too.

 

One of the SEAD missions I created lately involves 4 Ka-50 tasked to take out the remains of a SAM site once the Su-25T's did their job.

 

The Ka's do attack with Vikhrs from far away and then close in, flying over the last few remains while moving the barrel.

 

On one occasion their was 1 Infantry Soldier with a heavy machine-gun left alive after all those stand-off attacks. He almost downed 4 Kamovs himself, each and every Chopper got hit over and over again, voiding the option for soldiers to be taken out by gun runs.

 

 

The mission is attached, it mainly focuses on SEAD and is fully automatic, no player slot.

I wanted to closely watch and count how many ARMs you need to spam a Patriot.

 

Use time shift to accelerate until the Kamovs are close to Batumi.
