Default Suicidal snipers on Assault - 02-09-2005

I haven't played enough to see how common this is but on Assault there are several sniper camping-spots. (I like the one next to allied spawn, which is often beeing used by the axis panzer. ) However, when the sniper is camping and sees a target he sometimes moves forward, jumping off the edge and gets killed by the fall. Is this a problem with the path file or the coding?

I'll take a look at it. Thanks for letting us know. If it's a waypoint problem, I'll have it fixed by the next waypoint updates.

They should never move from their camping spot, unless they're out of ammo. Was he out of ammo (did he have his pistol out when he fell)?

Some stupid mistakes are allowed for - I've coded many of them in to make them seem more human. If they're doing it all the time no matter what, THEN there is a problem.

I don't think it has to do with running out of ammo. I've seen them jump holding the mauser.

I recorded a demo of it happening. You can see the bot moving forward, jumping of the first tower and shooting in midair. An axis bot does it to but from the bottom of the tower. I've also seen it happen from where I'm standing, above the ladder just outside allied spawn.

Excellent demo. I'll take a look at the sniper code again, I may have changed something without knowing.
