Two issues
  1. The crew disembarks too - while commander and gunner get back at least, the driver does not.
  2. The crew counting is buggy. It counts the crew already in the vehicle to the units to get in, while also counting their seats as taken.
  1. Load attached mission.
  2. The player is commanding a BTR-90 squad and an infantry squad.
  3. The crew is in the BTR-90.
  4. Select the entire squad (crew and infantry) ("select all" key action).
  5. Point at the BTR and use the quick command menu to tell them get in the BTR.
    (same is true if you order them in via the complex command though)

a) Notice how the crew gets out and then back in - however the (former and to be again) driver remains outside with state "ready".
b) The infantry squad gets in, but not all of them. The last of them stays outside as the free seat counting is done wrong.

If you only command the infantry squad to get in, all works fine.

a) The crew should not disembark when told to get in.
b) All troops should get as long as there is enough room to.

Here is an example mission with lots of different types of vehicles and helicopters all with the same Get In problem.

Extra points to make this description more complete for games play:

  • Any troops embarked on the target vehicle should not disembark when there.
  • GET IN should not cause any disembarks because, that should be done manually, otherwise it will cause confusion.
  • With squads with more than one vehicle automatic disembarks create confusion for Squad commander!
  • The current routines for GET IN cause some automatic disembarks.

Point restated lots sorry!
