Repaired AAA not firing - what have I done wrong?

Recommended Posts

Hey folks. I'm trying to repair a AAA unit after it is destroyed by enemy fire. I have a test mission with two AAA guns and two AI attacking aircraft. The AAA is wired up using the standard checkzone activation group. After the Flak38 gun is killed, I wait 30 seconds then activate and repair the gun. The two AI aircraft are still circling and see the gun, but it doesn't fire at them. It just sits there waiting for them to kill it.

 

I've tried using force complete "high" and then attack area to convince the repaired AAA unit to target the bad guys, but no joy. Unsure if I'm doing something wrong or this kind of scenario is just not supported. Or maybe those aircraft need to go away and come back for the gun to see them again? Seems weird.

 

Mission attached. Can anyone see what I've done wrong?

I tested AA deactivate-repair-activate long ago and could not get the guns to fire. You could try AA delete-spawn and see if it works.

Aha! That seems to work. Delete, respawn, onspawned -> forcecomplete -> attackarea is a recipe that seems to work. Thanks!

A repaired gun that does not work anymore, has not been repaired. So repair is bugged.

I wonder if the devs keep a list of all ME bugs sofar.

Repair is a feature that is known to be non-functional. It’s not bugged, it just isn’t there despite what the settings might indicate.
