  1. I do not think that I have reported the game crashing when using the HUD4, either. Currently, the predominant game problem encountered with the HUD4 is the fact that many, Many, MANY weapons fail to fire. This does not mean all of them. However, I have tried all the HUD4 scenarios and found only ONE scenario that could be completed. All the other scenarios were stopped once a database bug was encountered because database bugs are 100% reparable and 100% avoidable. The fact that the HUD4 manager tries to hide his incompetence is the reason why these HUD4 database bugs remain and are not fixed. Bugs are reported and ignored for years. The ASROC bug is just one of many such examples. They are fully correctable if the manager was knowledgeable about the database editor program. The fact that Guerin is unable to fix such simple errors just underlines his ineptitude. You openly admit that you know little about databases yet you try to pass HUD4 off as a functional database when it is not. I have taken the (fourth) time to show you and everyone else exactly where the bugs are in HUD4 and when they will be encountered. And, you beg for people to try your scenarios thus making them waste their time with silly avoidable database errors. If someone wants to spend his precious time hitting bugs, then that is their business. However, they should know up-front what problems they can expect to encounter when using the HUD4 database.
  2. As for the 737 being shot down, the game bug is that neutrals are being shot down when the AI should not be firing in the first place. As for weapons not firing, again I can only speak from my experience and that of others, there are many HUD4 database errors, and these include numerous weapons that do not fire. I would not encourage people to download the HUD-4 and some of the scenarios unless they have a surfeit of time to spend on dead ends.
  3. No, it is definitely a bug. In real life, incidents happen, but the mechanics in real life go about fixing them immediately instead of trying to deny their existence. You've now been shown three instances of your bugs and exactly how they manifest. Yet you cling to desperate denials as if they will make the problems disappear. The only way to fix a bug is to fix a bug. There is no small random chance built into the game for these bugs. This is not a function nor feature of the game. It is a game bug because other databases and scenarios such as CasoDB and the PlayersDB are not infected by this bug. It is a bug specific to the HUD4. These weapons fire without any problem in most databases except for the HUD4.
  4. Again, I can only report on the experiences of myself and others. HUD4 is a bug-infested mess. Anyone daring to try it should be prepared for their weapons not to fire. If they think that it is worthy of their time to start a scenario that ends with the units not firing their weapons, then that is their prerogative. Personally, my free time is too precious to be wasted on things that do not work. Note: this is your third attempt at denial of problems instead of just fixing them. Anyone contemplating use of the HUD4 can see just how far you are going to avoid fixing your problems.
  5. You may not have encountered the problem, but others have. It's a database error since since the weapon fires in other databases such as the PlayersDB because the PlayersDB does not suffer from such poor quality control in its entries as HUD4 does. The problem with MiG pilots shooting down neutral aircraft IS an ANW game bug and has already been reported AI engages neutral units AI deliberately engages neutral units even though they are not hostile towards the AI and are unarmed because it happens to all databases (including the PlayersDB). This is the quintessential definition of a game bug; that which affects all databases and players while the HUD4 database errors are limited to HUD4 users (thank goodness).
  6. You seem to be operating under the same delusion as the AGSI developers and its HUD4 cronies; that making the same denial twice somehow fixes the problems or bugs. Luckily, this is not how problems are handled in the real world. Unless the database and scenario are actually fixed, the problems will re-appear each and every time regardless of the number of denials. You've now been shown (twice) where the problems are. If you and HUD4 continue to refuse to fix them, that is certainly your prerogative. However, anyone who decides to try your scenario should be made fully aware of the problems so as not to be frustrated when they find weapons not firing from their platforms. When documented reports are accompanied with videos and pictures showing when and where a scenario will crash, it is just silly to try and claim otherwise. It didn't work for Lindsay Lohan's denials and it certainly doesn't work with HUD4 protestations over its bugginess.
  7. Tried this scenario and ran into the same weapons-will-not-fire problems as found in: Anyone running this scenario and finding that some of their weapons will not release, do not despair. You are not doing anything wrongly; it's a database error over which no player has any control.
  8. Sadly, this claim just isn't true. Here is a prime example of such mis-information: ASROC won't fire is a DATABASE bug (not a game engine problem) that was reported Nov 12, 2011. It was promptly ignored. ASROC error? Is the same bug re-reported one year later October 14, 2012. The database manager claimed (twice) that it was fixed, but the bug remains and prevents anyone using using ASROC in the HUD4. Anyone brave enough to try this database should be prepared for this weapon and others not firing. The player is doing nothing wrong; this is a DATABASE error that cannot be corrected by a player. Sadly, other players have encountered the same problems that prevent them from ever completing an HUD4 scenario such as: Personally, I have tried every HUD4 scenario ever written and have only been able to actually finish one without encountering a game-stopping database bug. I only wish it were not so since I wasted so much time trying to get them to run.

  17. The 45th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! Warhead The three most powerful men in the world are: The President of the United States, the Premier of the Soviet Union, and the Captain of a ballistic missile submarine. The Blue Crew of the SSBN Michigan won the annual Fleet Achievement Award. As a reward, the Navy paid for their family members to join them in Scotland. The homeward flight was hijacked enroute and diverted to Beida, Libya. A Marine Expeditionary Unit - Special Operations Capable - and elements of Detachment Delta is sitting offshore awaiting permission to enter Libya in order to liberate the aircraft and occupants. Meanwhile, negotiations continue and hostages are being shot every six hours. After the third hostage was murdered, an uncoded message was transmitted from the Michigan and recorded by several international agencies. "To the President of the United States Believing the Soviet demand that negotiations at Beida be conducted only by a United Nations team to be an inhuman and criminal political manoeuvre precluding swift and safe release of our families, we, the majority of the officers and crew of the USS Michigan do hereby serve warning upon the Soviet Union. Unless our families are released unharmed by 2400GMT 7 August, we will launch a Trident missile. Mike Dawson, Commanding" This scenario was inspired by the F. Robert Baker novel, "Warhead", Bantam Books, 1981.

  18. The 39th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 2.0 Test of Nerves "With the continuing escalation of skirmishing in the Baltic between Russia and Germany, tensions were rising worldwide. As long as the conflict remained in the Baltic, most other nations were willing to wait and watch. Once events turned against the Russians, reinforcements were brought in from the Russian Northern Fleet. This altered the situation and the NATO allies were compelled to assist the Germans, as required by the Treaty."

  20. The 37th NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! 06.0 Sitting Duck Station Sea of Dragons Battleset - Korean Standoff A period of rising tension, sparked by the U.S. announcement for withdrawal of the 2nd Division, has characterized relations between North and South Korea. Border incursions by North Korean special forces have increased and several acts of terrorism, carried out in strategic cities (e.g. the destruction of Pusan's main railway signaling centre), have been identified as occurring under North Korean instructions. The rhetoric issuing from both governments has become increasingly bellicose. In order to show commitment, the U.S. has moved the 7th Fleet to the East China Sea and has sent across both ground reinforcements and munitions. Although a number of U.N. resolutions have been passed, condemning the belligerent moves, only the U.K. and the Australians offer more than vocal support. A U.K. Marine Commando is flown to Twenty-Nine Palms and two frigates sent from the Gulf. Australia offers a battalion of troops, a DDG, and two frigates. 1.0 SitRep: The pride of the fleet, the Kilo-class submarine Dear Leader, has been given orders to deploy from the Yellow Sea. Any target deemed valuable enough is to be sunk without question. Enemy warships are a priority, especially those believed to be engaged in the anti-ballistic missile mission. The commander could not believe his luck when he got a strong ESM 'cut' on an AEgis radar.

  22. The 33rd NEW Harpoon scenario of the year! Haiphong or Bust This scenario is based upon an incident described in the book, Blind Man's Bluff, by Sontag and Drew. "Submarine spying had received a boost in Kissinger's and Nixon's eyes in mid-1972, when U.S. surveillance subs detected one of the rare overt Soviet moves to intervene in the Vietnam War. Shortly after Nixon announced the mining of Haiphong Harbour, the Soviet Navy sent three Echo II subs toward Vietnam. After they were detected by U.S. subs, Washington sent a message to Moscow, essentially saying, send them back home or they're history. The subs left."
