cannot intercept UFOs
« on: June 25, 2008, 08:06:30 pm »
Im running version 2.2.1 or 2.2 for win in my laptop. I equip my ships (both carrier and interceptors) with weapons and ammo. It all seems alright, but when I try to intercept an UFO a message pops up stating that I have not equipped weapons, ammo, or defense system is not operative... or somthing like that...

I know this has happened to a guy using MAC, but the problem was solved. I tried everything: reequip weapons, unload ammo and load it again, used different types of ammo, assigned and unassigned soldiers...  but it was useless...

I just cannot intercept UFOs neither shoot missiles from the base...it is so frustrating.
What can I do? Anybody with the same problem?

Could you post your 2.2.1 save game?

maybe we could see from there what your problem is.

I would do it gladly but there is a little problem: do not know where the saved games are stocked...  there is no "save" directory neither a ".sav" archive...  it is kind of weird.
Plus i have no idea on how to post an archive...  hehe that is even more weird ...

Little help if you are so kind?

The saved games are in your docset directory. I've never liked that arrangement, but oh well.

And by the way... I have to say that this game is just gorgeous!. It kicks the hack out of XCOM or any other similar game. Congratulations to everyone involved in this wonderful project!.

Im so happy for having the opportunity to play this game. And will be even happier when Spain wins the Eurocup.  Heehe.
Arriba Espana. Viva San Iker!

hmm

I loaded your save game using 2.2.1.
I'm on a mac.  But i was able to intercept a ufo with your interceptor.

I just double clicked on the ufo and selected the interceptor.

Hey, I tried again. Now it works! The saracen now shoots a single missile, although the message saying "no defense system or no weapon or ammo" still appears...but i managed to intercept the UFO. Alright!

Believe me, it wasnt happening before! I could clearly see the UFOs missiles, but my saracen wasnt shooting at all. There must be something wrong with it.

But this leads to another question: How come he shoots 3 and I shoot 1?

But, still.. its fine now.
Thank you for your help, anyway.

depends on the weapon you assigned to the craft

and the defense stuff is for the missile building in your base - there you have to assign a weapon, too (first buid that building of course ;) )
