* Known Harpoon [ANW] Issues

PostPosted: Sun Jul 08, 2007 8:22 am
by Herman Hum
These are behaviours acknowledged by AGSI, but they will not be 'fixed' as they are not deemed 'Bugs'. They have been listed here for the edification of players.

Aircraft destroyed

Aircraft destroyed on the ground/ship often do not get counted into Victory Conditions. This only occurs in the Scenario Editor. The function works properly in the Game Engine.

Initial sub depths

Sub units inserted with the SE start at -100m regardless of the local conditions. Once the game starts, the Game Engine enforces Depth constraints.

Ships sail over land

Ships are sometimes able to sail over land. Scenarios constructed with the SE 3.6.3 can exhibit this anomaly when run in the ANW engine.

Planes directly inserted

Icons for planes directly inserted into a scenario may not re-build properly. A unit that was previously a helicopter but is changed to a plane in the database will still appear as a helicopter.

Firing arcs ignored

Weapon arcs are ignored and all weapons may be brought to bear.

Heat-seeking AAMs engage from front aspect; Stern-Chase flag ignored

Heat-seeking AAMs will engage from the forward aspect. The "Stern-Chase" flag in the database is ignored

Identification failure

Sometimes, when you hit the Database button for a unit, only one possible identity is shown but the unit display will still describe it as Unknown.

Previous issues regarded as fixed by Patch 3.8.0

  1. Aircraft ignore Nav Zones

    Some aircraft on missions are able to fly through Nav Zones.

    Work-around solution: Draw a double-thick Nav zone or draw an additional Nav Zone just inside another Nav Zone.
  2. Circling torpedoes

    Torpedoes destroy their launching platform. Sometimes this causes a problem for the Victory Condition manager.
  3. LongMathError

    GE crashes when doing complex calculations involving units moving at high speed. This is due to the integer math system. Problem appears to be most often encountered when SLBMs launched. ICBMs seem to be okay.
  4. Time Zones

    Night and day are reversed so that daytime is actually 1801 to 0559. The H3 world revolves in the opposite direction to real life when calculating Time Zones. Game time is listed in terms of Zulu (GMT). If the scenario is one time zone East of GMT, you would normally ADD one hour to Zulu time to find the local time. However, H3 SUBTRACTS one hour instead.
  5. Fixed ranges for bombs

    Maximum range for bombs is fixed at 2nm regardless of the range a database editor may assign.
  6. Plane revert to cruise speed

    Individual planes always return to cruise speed after they are given new paths. This does not occur for groups.
  7. Orders disappear

    Orders for remaining side disappear when other sides are deleted
  8. Protect Station ViCond reverts to On Station ViCond

    "Protect Station" ViCond switches to "On Station" ViCond
  9. SSK do not snort

    When a diesel submarine runs out of battery charge, it does not automatically rise to periscope depth to begin re-charging its batteries. Instead, it just sits at the last known depth. Also, even if a player manually orders it to periscope depth, the re-charge process does not work unless the submarine is moving.
  10. Edit Aircraft function does not respect Time / Country restrictions

    When Time / Country restrictions are activated by the Launcher, Edit Aircraft function does not respect them when used to add aircraft to facilities. Aircraft directly inserted into a scenario function properly.
  11. Akula at Flank gets passive contact

    Akula at Flank is able to get passive contact
  12. E-3 lands and goes to 1092min ready

    E-3 lands and goes to 1092min ready time.
  13. CTD when torpedo fired

    CTD experienced when BOL torpedo fired from SSN Spartan in Power Sweep scenario run from a server.
  14. Ferry mission fails to execute

    Ferry mission fails to execute. If user runs in ScenEdit and orders planes to launch, they mission executes properly.
  15. CTD when Air Station destroyed

    CTD when Air Station is destroyed by ALCM.
  16. Sensors won't turn off Intermittent

    After sensors have been turned on Intermittent setting, it is not possible to change their setting in the future. Even if a player turns them either on or off, the Intermittent setting returns. Apparently, this is only problematic for multi-player games and does not present itself in solitaire games.
  17. Jamming detected underwater

    Submerged units can detect ships emitting ECM.
  18. ViCond polygons don't appear

    Only the polygon for the first ViCond appears even when other ViConds are selected.
  19. Missiles ignore cruise altitude

    Missiles fired at ground targets ignore the cruise altitude specified in the Database. These same missiles will fly at the proper cruise altitude when fired at ships.
  20. Accuracy / Speed slider affects game execution

    Different settings for the game speed / accuracy slider will cause scenarios to execute in a wholly different manner. Missions may execute on one setting but will fail on another speed setting.
  21. Accuracy / Speed slider crashes game

    Different settings for the game speed / accuracy slider will cause some scenarios to crash.
  22. Planes disappear from base

    After launching and landing, planes disappear from the base.
  23. Recon mission does not work for AI

    Recon Mission works for player, but does not work under AI control.
  24. Postures incorrectly re-built

    Postures are incorrectly re-estabilished once a unit has been destroyed.
  25. Weapon ranges less than one ignored

    Any weapon that has a range less than 1.0 nm, cannot be fired by the AI. However, the player is able to utilize these weapons manually and they appear to operate at the correct range. I do not know if missions created by the player will suffer this restriction, but I suspect that they will since Missions are under AI control.
  26. Strike mission fails to execute

    Enemy Unit appears not to be able to plot an intercept path.
  27. ESM at 1800nm

    Radar can be detected by ESM at a range of 1800nm. Radar in Europe (Spain) can nearly be detected in N. America.
  28. AC Stuck on Plotted mission

    Aircraft on Plotted mission cannot be removed from this mission in Mission Editor
  29. Multi-Player Chat Window appears in solitaire game

    After victory has been awarded to a player in solitaire mode, if the player elects to continue, a Multi-Player Chat Window opens when he selects "Yes".
  30. EmCon at Waypoints

    Aircraft will obey waypoint EmCon commands if the plane is currently either ACTIVE or PASSIVE (not intermittent). Once the aircraft receives a command to radiate Intermittently, either at the start or at a waypoint, no other EmCon commands will be accepted at future waypoints.
  31. Naval Ground Strike Mission

    Ships that are grouped together and on a ground strike mission will fire missiles, but will not close on the target to engage with naval gunfire.

    Work-around solution: This only applies to ASuW Area Patrol missions. Missiles will launch on strike missions.
  32. Non-radiating units show as being jammed.

    Units that turn off their radar can still show up as being jammed with the "X" next to their icon.
  33. NAV zone ignored II

    Aircraft on strike mission flies right through an Aircraft NAV restriction zone. This is not the same as the NAV zone bug reported here.
  34. Unit cannot plot course

    Unit is unable to plot a course that enables it to leave port and proceed to Formation patrol zone.

  23. Ferry mission crash

    If you set up a delayed Ferry mission and the receiving/landing facility (revetment/airfield) is destroyed (or deleted by the designer) before the mission is activated, the game will crash when the AI tries to launch the Ferry mission.

  24. Formation air patrols cancelled by Edit A/C function

    Formation air patrols cancelled by use Edit A/C function on the launching platform or hangar.
  25. Subs re-charge at Creep

    Subs are able to re-charge batteries without running throttles at Flank speed.

  26. Unlimited ammo dumps

Missiles not releasing

Missiles not releasing even though they are assigned in Weapons allocation window [Originally reported by KlubMarcus].

1. Run [HUD] Missiles not releasing (3.9.2).SAV in GE
2. Order Flankers to fire on enemy fighters
3. Weapons allocation screen will appear ([HUD] Missiles not releasing 1 (3.9.2).gif)
4. Assign 4 Alamo C and 2 Alamo D to first target
5. Unpause game.
6. No missiles appear.
7. Process must be repeated over, and over, again until missiles finally release at approximately 18nm
8. If weapons appear in the weapons allocation window, they should fire right away when assigned. If they cannot fire due to lack of fuel, weapon sensor not detecting target, altitude restriction, etc, then the weapon should not present itself as ready for allocation. This is misleading and requires the player to re-attack over, and over, again, until weapons are actually seen to launch.

Torpedo knows target depth

Torpedo becomes de facto depth finder.

1. Run [HUD] Torpedo knows target depth (3.9.0).scn in GE
2. SeaKing cannot fire at target since it is at -1200m depth. Torpedo becomes depth finder since sonar states that depth is unknown. Player knows that sub must be below-500m (max depth of Mk46 propulsion)
