Mod ground objects not shooting.

Recommended Posts

OK, I have WOV installed and patched up. I installed the Infantry Pack SP4 (1) and the Soviet Artillery (2) for the WOV Ground War Enhancement v2.1. (3)

Instructions with the infantry pack did not seem to correspond with what was included. But all the ground models are there in the game. They do not shoot however.

 

The infantry pack included just the object files and mentioned about some weapons pack. Someone forwarded me the gundata.ini so I put that in place and updated the .DAT file. Still nothing.

 

Consequently, under a different file directory I have the Falklands mod installed and the ground units put rounds down range as theyre supposed to.

 

any ideas/ hints/ tips/ help?

Hmmm... sorry about the confusion on the installation of the guns for the infantry pack with the ground war enhancement. Maybe I should update the readme with the necessary gundata.

 

I'm not sure why they aren't firing at each other if you have installed the gundata correctly. Can you attach your updated gundata file? And, you are using this with WOV, not SF2V, correct?

Yes its WOV, I'm not sure if its the ground campaign expansion, as the infantry mod should work on its own anyway right? I've checked the gundata.ini and it has the right entries for the weapons... quite perplexed.

Yes regardless of what campaigns/single missions you're using, if the infantry pack and weapons are installed correctly, they *should* be shooting at each other.

 

However, I've found that I usually don't even notice if they are or not. Hopefully it doesn't take away from the game play much (if at all)...

The BulletObject.INI is to the "Guns" as the MissileObject.INI is to the "Weapons". Check the Entry "EffectClassName" in the GunData's of the Weapons the Troopers have and see if they match up with the current BulletObject.INI in your Install.

Yeh, they match up.. odd. I might try n copy some of the data from the Falklands Mod that works n see what happens. Not exactly sure what to copy.

 

I do have other ground mods installed in my SE Asia version of WOV, such as the self propelled arty pieces, and the individual VC, NVA and 'vusa' soldiers. They use the same gun and bullet data entries as the squads that have probs and they shoot, so it must be with the addon squad unit themselves where the problem lies.
