Incinvible AI in the Kuban Campaign

Post by Bayern » Sun Feb 07, 2021 10:59 pm

So this is a problem that has happened a couple of times. I got behind a yak, put upwards of 15 kannons into him, he has no damage, no smoke, no nothing. Of course, I'm distracted and trying to kill him. Some human players show up and kill me. My fault for following the AI low, but this is a real problem in the current campaign. There have been a few times that the AI yaks have been invincible. Can I have my pilot's life back now :cry:

Edit: After all of those cannon hits, the ai Yak joined the conga line of death behind me as well. Something is off with the ai damage.

Nope, there are some AI as well. Not sure if its some kind of bug...
I will upload the film, the flight style of AI fighters is unmistakable.

I will upload the video and link when it is done, probably tomorrow. Just raw footage to youtube. I suppose it could have been human. Just some very strange server behavior this mission for me at least.

It could have been a de-sync issue with a real pilot. We had a couple of those in the early missions but only linked to one individual pilot. Not aware of any since, but an ID would be useful so we can check it out.

I only have the raw footage, no pilot ids sadly. But I suspect that Kildren was the one who shot me afterwards. In any case, my frustration with all of my many hits doing literally nothing led to me following him way too far east, and being jumped as well.

In a previous sortie, my wingman had the same issue. This was like 2 or three weeks ago. His was an invincible yak that took no damage for also 15-20 cannon hits over 30-40 seconds, and then suddenly despawned. I don't think there is footage of that one unfortunately.

this happened to me against a 190 like 6 missions ago... when someone has connection issues and rejoins the server, their plane gets all screwed up, and becomes de-synced and consequently appear to be invincible.

its a known issue and something that has no fix.

I think from now on, when someone is struggling to join the server/spawn in, they should sit out the mission, otherwise this will occur.

Yes it was glorious netcode. Or minengeschoss with 11 minute fuses. Take your pick.

I experienced this Thursday just gone in the ACG server. Emptied the entire ammo load of my 190 into a human Yak and nothing happened for a good 60-90 odd seconds. Then loads of outdated hit messages appeared.
