Do you have a Google login ? You have to be logged to open an issue.

Ignore all the other bits and pieces and just type in what the issue is and hit submit. Like this ...

Start @ Project Home ... then goto ... Issues (top menu)... then ... New issue (to the left of search)... type in a Summary ... add a Description ... hit Submit issue. That's it.

You don't have to worry about labels and that kinda thing. I can add those.

Add to list: mg tripods.
Bots dont like them. And if they do get on them, they just point and never fire, then they bail (they shouldnt bail or should see enemy bots out of firing range, so they only bail when the coast is clear).

Now german tripod mgs. Wth! Now they NEVER use them. And when they did, they couldnt turn the whole damn thing.
I think tripod ai is similar to bipod mgs. It should really be similar to 6pdrs so bots can use short-range traversal AND full gun traversal.

Will add this when i put them all on tracker

I have been trying to figure out the 'firing from the hip' issue for a while. Djinn's right that the G43 is the only weapon in FH2 that the bots will switch from firing from the hip to aiming down the sights when engaging. But I can't, for the life of me, figure out what is different about G43's files (animations or otherwise) that cause this. I even gave the G43's files to other weapons to test and didn't notice any bots aiming down the sights. There are still other things I can try, but I've been side tracked by other projects. Still, I'm determined to figure it out, because the shooting from the hip is something that bothers me.

Its times like this I really hope Drawde would come out of hiding.

No one found solution to weird issues like Drawde - some that had been there since 2.0.

Or maybe if we can contact a pr AI dev...

Maybe because its in the Sniper slot or something like that?

Where does it go? All guns, rifles or the g43?


EDIT: Did you modify the .tweak file for the G43 from the weapons_server.zip for other rifles, or just tweaked the g43.tweak from that file further?

Don't worry, it's just my crap attempt at being witty. Nothing directed @ you.

I adjusted a few labels and changed priorities a little. Made a few comments myself. Looking good !

I also found CSV database export for all the issues so they can be backed up regularly.

Ok, people. Roll up your sleeves. We are going BACK in!

2.4 is out - and it cries for us. Game is great - Solid AI, improved tanking, everyone's doing what they need to.

But defending is too easy, tanks still reverse more than they move forward, you get CTDs from certain vehicles, some AT guns need to hammered down, spawns need repositioning and more static defenses need spawns.

Consult the Tracker to add bugs as you see them, and the AI suggestion section to add suggestions for AI improvement and report progress here. For changes in Spawn, drop a picture of the minimap on photobucket or somesuch and circle the suggested spawn points with the probability bots will spawn there, and circle static positions that need to be spawn, locked to one side, or need to respawn after base is capped by enemy.

Remick04, great job man! Thanks for not leaving us after 2.3 - It couldn't have been easy to juggle work and this, and to add 2 excellent new maps, each with nevmeshed buildings included. You are the man!

Just keep the 20,000 foot view to get situational awareness so you don't have to randomly test your own maps to know what needs fixing. Chek out tracker and the suggestion sub-forum and you'd know where to look. We are here to help, so use us :)

Now everyone else - Clock's a-ticking and work needs doing. Now scat!

Djinn, the links in your last post have some extra characters...

EDIT: And by the way, you can close issue #28 (Double countdown to respawn on Singleplayer mode). Developers fixed it in 2.4

Thanks man. DJBarney, Issue #28.

Thanks, gavrant - I've made those changes. The links should now work :)
