reaction fire not working?
« on: March 29, 2006, 04:02:02 pm »
As some ppl mentioned, reaction fire doesn't work right now.

Bug Tracker:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=1459259&group_id=157793&atid=805242

Does anybody know if reaction fire did work at some time or is it not completly implemented?

Ah, ok. So it's 'just' a matter of finding the problem then ;)
If i find some time besides the research coding i might be able to located it.

I played a bit with the reactionfire code and found out two things:

* If i remove some conditional checks (especially the range check) reaction fire is working (more or less) (FYI: the checks get until the one where it checks for available weapons + range)

* But when it is working, it also fires when _you_ move your soldier -> enemy spots you and fires -> your moved soldier spots the alien and fires as well ;) -> So it needs a check foir the current team i think.

If i get some more time i'll try to find the exact reasons of both problems.

It works but, unlike UFO X-COM, the enemy has the time to fire at your soldier before start the reaction fire. It should be that an enemy spotted start the reaction fire before it can shoot at you.

Reaction fire works for both aliens and squads at the moment, I'm playing the latest nightly build and an alien just shot me while I tried to snipe him.
