Jerky Animations
Assigned, WishlistPublic


See this video:

Every sitting animation I place on the guy in that chair, he is Jerky. I have not tried this anywhere else, with any other animations except the sitting ones.

I used the attachTo command, the setDir command and the switchMove command.

What is rather strange is that there is a cutscene before the part in the video. It shows both guys sitting down, the player and G1.

The player is attached to his chair, with setDir as normal, and also using a switchMove sitting animation.

The player's animation is smooth, the AI's is not.

I am unsure if this is a problem that exists elsewhere. {F20252}

I've added a repro mission that's slightly different than your repro but seems to be the same issue. It looks like attached objects get simulated at reduced speed now.
