Me and a buddy are playing the PMC campaign, and when I host it, the thermal scope either switches to Asano's weapon, or disappears all-together. In Single Player, I always have it on my AS50.

This makes this mission very very difficult to play without it.

gday Anticept,

two questions:
  1. Do you use PMC 1.01?
  2. Is the issue from the start or when loading a savegame?

More precise repro steps would help. Ty.

Apologize; it happens on a fresh start of the mission. The thermal will jump to Asano's gun if he is under AI control, and will disappear altogether if both are player controlled at mission start.

I am uncertain of the PMC version, I have it on steam and have verified cache for OA and PMC with the automatically keep up to date setting on, and it's still occurring.

I can confirm this behavior but I haven't rechecked it after the latest patch.

i'm not sure if this is not 'by design' issue for MP coop...

Problem is, Dwarden, it makes the mission nearly impossible to complete. You have to disable the tanks with the rifle, and because you have no AT or thermal scope, you have to guess at where to shoot. Combined with limited ammo, that makes this a very difficult to complete mission.

Using OA 1.60 RC and PMC 1.02, this issue still exists. The thermal scope shifts to Asano's weapon when hosting, at least when Asano is AI-controlled. Dwarden should confirm if this issue is by design or not. The behavior seems undesirable to me.
