Fair demo mission. One can select two towns/locations and it generates the WP and convoy on the fly.

  1. Launch as SP / editor mission
  2. Go to the map
  3. Launch the action (search route)
  4. Select two towns/locations
  5. Click search
  6. Wait for the pathing to be done
  7. Click close
  8. Watch the convoy drive the route

More details about the mission and its options.

There was an error on line 317 in init.sqf, which should read:

while {(!(alive (THE_CONVOY_VEHICLES select MOVEIN_CURRENT)) || (_free == 0))} do

I've updated the version found here: http://non.sense.ch/shared/RUBE_convoyTester.Takistan.pbo or just correct that line by yourself unless you don't fancy to die on teleporting to a vehicle that hasn't any free cargo space left.

Fair demo mission

I am sorry, while this may be an interesting tool, this is not a good repro for a programmer. Good repro must never give any free will, or require any decision. The repro needs to show one particular situation where bug happens. If there are more situations, more repros are needed.

Well so far we are still gathering.

The mission from ruebe can be used to repro a particular route all the time.
So in case someone finds a problematic one, he can specific clearly how to repro it.

In other words the idea is NOT to randomly select routes and hope for issues.
