Certain stationary tanks don't fire
« on: September 25, 2019, 05:33:34 PM »

Another bug I found. There are quite a few stationary tanks that don't fire at anything. Their mobile counterparts are properly aggressive, but these are the tanks that I know of who's stationary variants don't fire:

- M4 Sherman 76mm
- Puma
- Panther
- Panther II
- Aufkl. Panther
- Maus
- T-44
- IS-3
- KV-3

And I suspect a lot more. I haven't tested every tank, but I know the M36 Jackson and the stock tanks work fine.

Is this an actual bug or some sort of file derp on my end?

Tanks designed as stationary objects don't fire, only tanks set as stationary armour fire.
Some exist as both and that can be confusing.

Ah, okay.

… In that case, I found a different bug.

The stationary non-firing M36 Jackson... well... fires.  :-|

I don't know in which rules B.A.T.'s stationary.ini is written about tanks (armors), it looks many "No Fire stationary object" and "Firing stationary armor" are mixed in Stat_Tanks_XXXX sections.

... are mixed in No-Fire sections even being firing "Artillery" classes in #WAW3.

In other eras' stationary.ini .... similar bugs existing ?  I've not checked them.

yeah, that's an organically grown mess... largely untouched since the beginning of BAT
But as a mission builder, I don't think it's a big problem. Frankly, I am too lazy to sort through these files myself unless I find something that bothers me.

Simple "missing" might be not so serious problem, I think, but....
"mixed" is troublesome ..... bringing big confusing.

So, once group name rules are shown, I'll be able to help about only to rewrite stationary.ini .

that's the first question on the matter in some 3 years. I would not call that big confusion.

But thanks for the offer to help, I'll get back to you once the next expansion rolls along.
