|0000318||AI War||[All Projects] Bug - Other||Oct 4, 2010 10:37 pm||Oct 13, 2010 10:34 pm|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0000318: Heavy Beam Cannon not doing damage.|
|Description||In my current game I have a single enemy bomber in a tractor beam and 3 heavy beam cannons in range that are not doing any damage to it.|
The graphic for firing is drawn, the mouseover says "100% chance for 250,000 damage" but the bomber doesn't take any damage.
See my attached save game.
Note that there are a few basic turrets in range also, but I've powered them down so the only things that should fire on loading the game are the heavy beams.
Will attempt to test other enemy units.

Can confirm fighters also take no damage from Heavy Beams so I suspect they are broken all around.

|out of curiosity - have you tested zenith beam frigates? If they suffer from a similar issue...|

hm weird - it seems to work sometimes and not work other times. I certainly have seen a HBC completely miss a target, although ive also seen a HBC hit 3-4 targets that were completely not in a line together.
This leads me to think some positioning stuff is totally out of sync with the graphics engine

I suppose that could be part of it, however in my initial post, the only hostile ship in the system is that single bomber.
Although having no clue how Heavy Beam targeting works I don't know.
And no, I haven't tested Beam Frigates and out of time to do so tonight.
Someone else have 15 minutes to do so?

|Yeah, lemme try again (tried zbeams, seemed to work ok, but i did not test them in similar conditions to HBC, against a singletarget tractored. )|

I can not reproduce the issue with zbeams, it seems they work fine from any angle (just to be sure), including ones where the draw is offset completely.
But i can reproduce with HBC, so there is certainly some issue.

|Ok, to test I sent a lot of bombers against a bunch of HBCs, and judging by the sheer volume of next-of-kin letters we're having to send out I think the HBCs are working again :)|
This issue is already marked as resolved.
If you feel that is not the case, please reopen it and explain why.
