Area 51 / Re: Area 51 - General Feedback thread
« on: October 27, 2016, 04:58:30 pm »
Just received this message while entering ship mission.

OpenXcom has crashed: MAPS/CARGOSHIP00.MAP  not found.
I've renamed CARGOSHIP.MAP to CARGOSHIP00.MAP

Then I received this :

OpenXcom has crashed: Routes/CARGOSHIP00.RMP  not found.
Again, I've renamed CARGOSHIP.RMP to CARGOSHIP00.RMP

It worked.

Hit ratio shows chance to hit particular "central" voxel, not unit itself.
Last time I did uninstall C++ 10+ years ago, but I presume OpenXCOM uses pixel model, not voxel? Or volume measurements was implemented especially for OpenXCOM? UFO 1993 is too old for voxel algorythms. Maybe :)
If hit ratio is shown for a central voxel, then it must be harder to hit a whole body. But what I see now, it's working vice versa.  :-[

It can't be truth. At least, for the nightly.
Well, this is my own observations based on hundreds of reloads. Sure I can be wrong, since stats science can't even rely on millons sampling.  :)

and you can miss with 110%.
That's right, sometimes it happens. :)

With this option enabled, it now shows hit %, but accuracy works in some "magic" way.
1. I've noticed that for hit ratios below 50%, a real probability to hit a target is far less than 50%.
2. But if my soldier standing right before an alien, hit ratio is about 100%, even if indicator states 33%.  :)
3. Closer to the end of game, aimed shots shown with 100+% hit ratios. ;) I've tried to reload game tens of times, and it's really hard to miss with 110% hit probability. :)
Should this be considered as game defect, or such a change must be released as game patch?
I do have some shooting experience, and understand that such effects as derivation, or "bullet likes the sun" won't work in XCOM, but I could modestly advise to change shooting accuracy coefficients. ::)

Troubleshooting / Re: Do I have to open new account with BugTracker?

post the saved game here and i'll take a look.
It seems I forgot an ancient IT wisdom - "Have You Tried Turning It Off And On Again?". This is a citation from "IT Crowd" movie, and it's about shutting down PC. Now just tried to reload game about 20 times, and game did not crash even once.

P.S. Just opened a BugTracker account. Phew. :)

I finally found "Save scumming" ingame, I think I turned this trigger already using hex editor. )
I also encounter constant collision form glitches, when firing from behind wall corner. A shooter much likely will hit a wall corner, rather than its target.

I already registered here, and do not endorse registering a new account on same forum.
Additionally I failed to pass security check.  :(
I've made a savegame, where game always crashes.

2015 will be year of TFTD.

This would be most appreciated! If I can help as tester, please PM. I don't have much time, but I have experience with commercial game projects. :)

Hi,
  I've changed random numbers generator seed creation in .ini file, so new seed is generated every time I reload. Just encountered several cases when reloading doesn't help. :) It's not much a problem, since it is easy to solve it by moving my soldier closer to an alien. :)

Sometimes I encounter situations, where my troop always misses. Just for fun, I've reload more than hundred times. Tested with snap or sniper shots, and 32% hit probability. I'm not sure if there will be a miss with next reload, so I just came closer to an alien. )))
