AH-99, when starting in gunner seat, cannot access the FLIR camera.
Assigned, WishlistPublic


In the editor, when you are placing an empty AH-99 and you climb in it as the gunner, you can access the FLIR Cam with the right mouse button.

But if you start the mission IN the AH-99 as "Player as gunner", when you right click the mouse button, your view is just zooming in. I am not able to pop the FLIR cam in any way.

Unless I am missing something... {F22432}

Steps To Reproduce

Damn, just wanted to report this bug...

Actually, you stop being able to access optics not when switching to "player as gunner", but after a certain number of previews (may be 1).

My repro is as follows: place an AH-99 (player as gunner), place preview, try to access optics, exit back to editor. Repeat preview. At some point optics will stop to be accessible.
Restarting the game fixes it.

Confirmed, happens in all vehicles that have 3D cockpits and optics for me, such as the MRAPs

It happens in multiplayer only.

In singleplayer also. I have a ticket with speedboats saying the same. I dint know that was for all.

@alef: It happens in multiplayer only.

Not true, I've reproduced it multiple times in the editor.

It doens't care if multiplayer or singleplayer: I've realized now that it happens the first time since the game process has been started. Uninitialized variable?

This means:

  1. start the game
  2. enter the SP editor, add the heli and set player as gunner
  3. preview the mission, right click
  4. right click just zoom in. Sometimes, 1 on three attempts.
  5. esc, restart
  6. right click now switches to camera. Everytime.

Exactly the opposite for me - works great first few times, then breaks. Agree, definitely looks like something uninitialized or undefined behavior.

Figured out the repro - you need to die before restarting preview.

One more repro case: when switching between gunner and pilot multiple times via Team Switch, optics also stop to be accessible. Also, may be related to #15701
