  • Constant charged weapons bug

    Sorry if this has come up before folks, but there is a bug in the game that lets you charge up your sword or blackjack and then keep it charged without holding down the attack button on the mouse. You can then attack with a fully charged blow by pressing attack again. The weapon then usually returns to its "normal" status. This might seem only a minor bug and maybe even isn't an advantage, but I'll let the developers and the community decide.

    People probably know what I'm talking about, but I don't want to post it here. i would like to let the developers know if they don't already (again excuse my ignorance if it's already been discussed).

    cheers

    It's a known issue, probably fixed in 1.3.

      It's a known issue, that many people use, and that I never saw fixed in 1.3. :twisted:

        I think it should be as in Thief: Can't hold it for long, well, ya know

          I like that idea. In theif you could only hold the bow drawn for so long, then it would quiver and then it would just be let down slowly. I would also like the zoom feature to be added to the bow after it has been drawn completely like in Thief. I can sometimes hit a running target now with the bow (ask Gerb about Nostalgia), but I think the zoom would be nice to add. Could probably be added to the xbow for balance too.

            Actually, if held to long, the bow would go off in T. Or the BJ/Sword would "go off", often causing a noise DOH! :grin:

              The bow didnt go off in thief 1 if you held it too long it went down (after a shake on the aim)

              But i think bringing it up even if it is "Known" to players is till a good idea (since dalai hadnt know about loot bug) its best to have it out.

                Yep, another Thief feature that I miss. It encouraged players to improve upon both their accuracy & timing (which can't be bad).

                  Hmm...ok, this might be the reason for a problem I have been having. Sometimes when I have my bow drawn and ready to fire a crack arrow as soon as I open a door, I notice that the silly bow doesn't fire! I thought I was just lagging or something before, but now I guess I was using this bug without knowing it.

                  So is that the bug? Weapon charged, then you frob something, and it sticks until you hit fire again? Or is it something else?

                  I will have to try to re-create it tonight.

                    Charge weapon then go into another screen (say press escape, or right click an ai) not too sure if chatting does it, and i didnt think frobbing did it..... bu hey checking it more aint gonna do any harm that i can see.

                      Tried it out last night. The only problem is that you can't frob anything while holding the charged weapon. Sounds kinda balanced to me.

                      I declare it a feature, not a bug.

                        I'm almost positive I've opened doors and such while holding a charged weapon with this bug. However, if you switch to any kind of bolt while your weapon is held charged this way, your crossbow will fire about 3-4 times uncontrollably.

                          I tried frobing several times. No dice. Could be a lag issue though, I had a lot of those last night. I didn't try changing weapons, maybe I will try that in solo later on.

                            It happened to me several times last night on Korman. I wasted 3 tags and a para because of this.

                              Do they fire in rapid succession, or is it fire, load, fire again, ect? Firing 4 times in a row would be VERY powerful if you are facing the right way.
