new FORCE_CHANCE_TO_HIT might be buggy

Post by vghetto »

Hi,

The new implementation of FORCE_CHANCE_TO_HIT might be buggy in 1.15 when the other side has magical attacks.
To test set the cth to 0 against a silver mage for example.

Are you saying that when attacking a silver mage, and you use FORCE_CHANCE_TO_HIT on the unit that's attacking, something isn't working? It'd be really strange for the defender's weapon special to affect a macro used to affect the attacker's weapon.

Hi,
For illustration, try attached scenario in 1.14 and 1.15. Use ranged attacks.
In 1.14 none of the silver mage ranged attacks will land.
In 1.15 they will hit.

Code: Select all

{FORCE_CHANCE_TO_HIT (side=2) (side=1) 0 ()}

Alright, that's a known issue, with a fix proposed in #5213. So hopefully it'll be resolved in 1.15.8 (since there isn't enough time before 1.15.7).

edit-
Apparently the [pr] tag doesn't want the leading # between the tags.
