This problem is very evident in PMC scenario P02: Reaction. Rescued hostages have no weapons, and will not move when crouched. I first noticed this in a 1.60 beta, but am not sure if it existed earlier or not.

It would be nice if someone can verify the fix did not break AI going to crouch in some other situation (with some weapon or some special equipment).

Suma,

In 86122, playing Eagle Wing, in End Of The World mission, speznaz leader in red beret, who is holding a fancy Russian scoped automatic rifle, gets stuck in crouch just after the player accepts a similar fancy weapon from him. In previous beta, he, as leader, will quickly run off to next objective (find car in nearby town). In this beta, he is stuck in crouch with weapon, and will not move.

Edit:

However, just after that observation I suspended the game, quit game to write this post, and then restarted, loading the suspend save. The Speznaz leader got up and ran off as usual. But if I hadn't suspended and restarted, I would have had to revert from last autosave, as he would not move at all.

Cheers,
OMAC

I have played the mission upto this point, saved the game a few seconds before he crouches, and repeatedly tried to see the issue. What I saw always was:

- he crouched, told me to pick up the weapon
- once I picked up the VSS Vintorez (using the gear, or using the Take VSS action), he raised and ran off

The only situation he did not raise was when I opened the gear, but did not pick up the weapon offered.

Hmmm. I unfortunately did no manual saves, and now I am past that point, so will have to play mission again up to that point to test further. That gives me the opportunity to replay one of the best BIS missions ever designed. Karel Moricky is one talented designer!!!!! And your repairs to the AI damage levels make gameplay a little easier, more fluid, and more fun.

I think I did access Gear menu while he was crouched, but I did pick up the weapon, dropping an M240 MG. It doesn't look like there is a very severe problem, but in both our cases, there was a way for him to get stuck in crouch. I will re-test and report back.

I replayed End of the World, and got the same behavior as you. Totally normal. The crouched Speznaz leader will not move until you have taken the weapon, which I think is optimal. Must have been some glitch before, as he had crouched very near the house for some reason. Forget it.

This issue is also completely fixed in PMC 02:Reaction. Unarmed hostages move perfectly when in crouch. I'll keep looking, but I think this issue has been fixed. Good job!!! :)
