I really want 1.09 guided arrow back ;)

Post by OrganizedChaos » Thu May 17, 2012 1:41 pm

Hi there,
I have tried editing the hell out of missiles.txt, and the option of setting pierce column to 1 does not bring the old skill behavior back at all. What it does is enables GA to pierce once for a grand total of 2 hits. After EXTENSIVE testing I have seen some GA's that pierced twice and once or twice did I see it pierce 3 times. Generally on a target that moves towards you it will do one pierce total. I am using 1.13 and the rumored maximum of 4 pierces eludes me. If anyone has this figured out please share, I am making PVM only mod, and its rather important for me to have genuine old GA.

Thanks.

Remove the 13/10 in pCltHitFunc/pSrvHitFunc and set pierce to 1.

I'm not sure if it will work, but as far as I know the 13/10 hit functions change the missile's piercing abilities and override the value in the pierce column.

Code: Select all

Missiles.txt
Functions: 7|13|7|10|Retarget: 5|15| CltPar1: 5| Pierce: 1|
This works for me ^ like a charm

I believe the rumor I was once told is that pierce is 1/3 on each attempt. I set mine to 100% just now to test before saying anything. It pierced 3 times almost every time.
One day I'll put my humpty dumpty back together again...
