Description

I installed this mod several days ago and enjoy it greatly. I can't go back to Vanilla now.

However, starting today, whenever I fire my weapon when ACE mod is enabled, my bullets go all over the place. Sometimes they seem to disappear, sometimes they are way off target, sometimes they hit the ground 3 feet in front of me, my friend witnessed one actually impacting behind me, and I've even managed to shoot myself a couple of times. Looking on YouTube and google, I have determined this is the FADE anti-pirating feature.

I have Combined Arms and shelled out a lot of money for them and do not pirate software.

I downloaded ACE via Six Updater and have even re-downloaded it just to make sure. Still getting the FADE-like problem. If I just run the game vanilla, everything's fine and the FADE problem goes away.

Again, I have been playing ACE for several days and know what the more realistic accuracy and wind look like. This is something different, I can actually have bullets go backwards out of my weapon and have even shot myself while sniping at a target 600m away.

I don't know what to do.

History

Updated by Militantsausage over 4 years ago

sounds like my recent problem with ballistics. Wasn't FADE related though

Updated by xtitan1 over 4 years ago

Yeah, I mean from what I read about FADE, it can only be activated via directly editing original game files (which of course SixUpdater doesn't do). The effects are extremely similar to it however. What issue are you talking about bro? Fill me in-

Also, there are like 5 users recently posting today in the ACE mod official thread on the BI forums that they are also experiencing this problem.

I am experiencing the problem. Cannot shoot correctly even when the target is 25 meters away.

Please find signed fix attached.
Btw, the issue only occurs in Single player and (non deddy) MP Hosts.

Updated by Sniperwolf572 over 4 years ago

Actually it also affects the host in a non-dedicated MP game, regardless of wind deflection on or off status. Happened here a few mins ago (Without the fix).
