Bug OP Filter

Is OP Filter works in last patch ?
I instaled it twice - second time about 3 or 4.04.2014 and looks like it doesnt work
I can select values, then aply to unit or entire formation, then I see range "Filtered" then send turn to opponent and ... when i got turn back all values are set to default, noone units is filtered all range is max ...

Are you sure you are using the purchased/"CD" version of the game?

as what you describe is IIRC the behaviour of the free version.

So, did something fire at you?

If so, the target unit set filtering off, or at least (with the free game version - Y key range) - sets range to that of the firing unit +1 hex.

In other words - if somebody shoots at your troops, they will want to shoot back. They don't care about your orders then.

Are you talking op filter (0) or range (Y) ?

As Andy says they will ignore range settings if fired at that becomes the new max range

@ Andy thought you guys were taking a break go enjoy it.

I'm talking about both situations

1) OP fire is RESET after turn is back from opponent

2) Range is reset nevermind somebody shots or not

3) I'm not a camel ...

I'm just trying to gather all the information I can

You are saying in a PBEM game ( secure ?? or not ?? ) you have set up opfire for your units but when you get the turn back from him all of your settings are back to zero ?

Do you know if he is using opfire as well and is he running the CD version or the DL version ?

AFAIK this is the first report we have had like this and this is another situation like we have had recently where a bit of code we thought was solid and haven't touched in the last year appears to be misbehaving.

This could be a new flaw in the opfire routine but it might also be a corrupted PBEM file so we will have to run some tests ourselves.

Has anyone else who uses Opfire in PBEM noticed anything like this ?

OK, here's what we know

1/ Opfire worked in secure PBEM up to this latest patch, now it does not

2/ This bug does not affect the Opfire routine in regular games or scenarios or campaigns and it does not affect basic security PBEM games ( including PBEM campaigns ) so ONLY secure PBEM games are affected.

3/ The issue affects both winSPWW2 and winSPMBT

4/ At this time we have NO IDEA why this may have occurred.

5/ Don't expect a resolution anytime soon but there is no doubt that at some point we will resolve the problem and issue a correction. For now, Opfire is not functional in secure PBEM games
