You could release part 5 for example. Since Smeagol has links to all the old threads in his opening post it's not necessary to keep the old ones fixed.

Fixed the trigger group merges.

Those work now as follows (works for regular and modified version):

Trigger Group 2 + Copper Wire = T.G. 3 + Pack of Gum
Trigger Group 4 + Copper Wire = T.G. 3 + Rubber Band

Trigger Group 2 + Rubber Band = T.G. 4 + Pack of Gum
Trigger Group 3 + Rubber Band = T.G. 4 + Copper Wire

Trigger Group 3 + Pack of Gum = T.G. 2 + Copper Wire
Trigger Group 4 + Pack of Gum = T.G. 2 + Rubber Band


(yeah, I know, the merges are a bit far fetched... it's all for the sake of having the merges...)

After playing a little I must say that I'm impressed! There are so many new things to discover. Smile

I've got some questions though - why are there several ammo donkeys for the same ammo type? Why do they have to be two-handed and so big that they don't fit in any pocket?

Might want to try my variant instead? I 'cycle' through the trigger groups using a utility knife (use type merge). This represents 'adjusting some internal component' and only requires 3 merges:
TG 4 -> TG 3
TG 3 -> TG 2
TG 2 -> TG 4

I don't think it's worse than stuffing bubblegum into your trigger group, could also use a toolkit instead if you feel this is to complex to do with a utility knife.

@ DepressivesBrot: Nice suggestion, I agree. The toolkit option is even better. It would also be nice if the toolkit would be used up a bit for this merge.

Possible exploit: Repair a damaged trigger group using a 100% toolkit to merge. Merge toolkits and repeat until status of the trigger group reaches 99%

That's why I said 'use type merge', it doesn't change anything about the condition of the items.

Hey, this actually makes much more sense than these "gum/wire/band" variants. Trigger groups are complex mechanical devices, not some playtoys that can be tweaked with just any piece of garbage you happen to have at hand.

Thumbs waaaay up, DB Smile

Two new ammo donkeys have some wrong data. They fit in small pockets.

Item 2369 and 2371:

add "34"
remove "8"

Thanks for reporting... I might change that when I remember... currently working on the AIM-NCTH conversion (which will make the xml editor useless until it gets updated...).

Therefore, I won't be adding any completely new stuff in the next time... just updating all the items for NCTH will take quite some time anyways.

Is there a folding foregip in the game? I was just wondering since I haven't seen any so far...

And Smeagol could you pleease release a minor fix, at least for the MP5SD RAS and other stuff mentioned before you move to NCTH project?

I've just conquered Cambria and these new additions have been so sweet. Thanks.

I think the MP5 fix is in V9.

Folding Foregrips can probably be ordered from Bobby Rays. Finding them in-game could be a bit difficult I guess...

I haven't downloaded the latest version, but in a previous version I had to add a line to Items.xml since Bobby Rays didn't carry them, which was probably an oversight.

Small issue, but it would be nice to get it work.

There are two values which define what Bobby Ray should have in stock.

1
1


You need to add them to the attachment that you want in his stock. The number between the tags defines the amount that BR has.

If you would want to buy the folding foregrip in new and used condition you would do this for example:


	2407
	Foregrip, folding
	A. - Foregrip, folding
	This small folding foregrip fits certain submachineguns.
	A. - Foregrip, folding
	This small folding foregrip fits certain submachineguns.
	268435456
	1
	1057
	1
	2
	20
	100
	2
	1
	1
	1
	1
	2
	1
	4
	4
	8



He could have 2 new ones and 1 used one.

For the NCTH version I fixed the two ammo donkeys and the Folding Foregrip not showing up in BR inventory.

I will also add more than one default attachment to some guns.

But remember: As I said before, the files won't be compatible with the XML Editor, if you try to use the editor on them, it will either not load at all or overwrite the file and thus deleting the new changes.


Anyways... back to work...

Found new bugs. The heat rocket overtakes the properties of the napalm rocket. This only happens if you have a heat (or a HEDP) rocket and a napalm rocket attached at the rocketlauncher.
A single rocket works fine.

Hi m8s, found this:
Assertion failure [Line 1368 in file Map Edgepoints.cpp]
Sector A9 level 0 doesn't have any isolated south mapedgepoints KM:1

it occurred when I tried to go to A9 (Omerta) from B9 in tactical. Its map bug or something more serious?

Hmm... Gorro reported a similar thing... I could not reproduce it. Don't know what's going on there...



I uplaoded the first test version of files for NCTH.

You'll find the necessary data on my skydrive.

Make sure you have Headrocks test exe to go along with it. Otherwise this stuff won't work.

Also, make sure [color:#FF0000]NOT TO USE THE XML EDITOR!!![/color]

It will screw up all data.


There are also some additional minor fixes in it (like 43mm are now repairable, removed some wrong tags from some items, the two ammo donkeys silfersurfer mentioned above are fixed, the AG36 can no longer be attached to an G36K... ).

Have fun and make sure to report all strange stuff. :happybear:




Edit:
Be prepared for a really frustrating game experience though... your guys won't hit anything... enemies will hit very often...


Edit:
Okay... it really takes some time to get used to NCTH... it plays a lot different than regular 1.13.



Also reproduced the assertion failure on the B9 to A9 travel. Yeah... this is related to the fence that is next to the road in B9. stinks, but I probably won't fix it any time soon... but then again... you never know... After I reworked all that stuff already I might be eager to give Big Maps another go... ah well...

Smeagol, I'm using the "SHOW_TACTICAL_FACE_GEAR" and "SHOW_TACTICAL_FACE_ICONS" in my game.
Now I found that the pictures/icons don't show ingame when I use your new face gear.

They don't show because the item IDs are hard coded in the exe. I thought about taking item bonuses for a check but that wouldn't work well because items might have bonuses for several light conditions.

So I'm planning to change that code and implement a few new tags for "Items.xml".

These tags will be:

0
0

Regarding extended ear I can check for "0" but I could add another tag "0" as well.

What do you think about that?

if you can also make the smart goggle switch code make use of the tags because we've had it switch sunglasses for a gasmask..

Are you talking about the SAS gas mask? Gorro already told me about that. In the end he had two gas masks on. Very Happy

I already opened a bug report on JaggZilla about that.

We could probably use the flags for smart goggle swap as well. I have to think about that a little and maybe I'll fix it.

The only problem I see at the moment is that an item could have a bonus for day- and nighttime. It would need to belong to a category (either sun goggles or NV goggles). You might set both to "1" but only one will be shown as icon.

Item idea: Reversible helmet covers and camo clothing. Using the armor it is attached to to merge with them changes from woodland to desert (or more usefully, woodland+desert to urban).

well, i guess you deserve it after all the great work you have done so far smeagol!

i am sure there will be more rebalancing work waiting for you once HAM4 with the new CTH calculation and other features get released and have to be implemented. it sure aint easy to keep up with all the new features and developements getting done lately with such a mod.

but so far, your AIM is a great success and a quite solid piece of work.
