1. as seen here http://forums.mechcommander.co.uk/topic/6945718/1/#new i can choose where to attack my pilots...but, when I select an option they don't atack :| just stand still...
if are close to the enemy, shoot one or two shots, then do not attack unless i give another command. why? is this normaly?

2. any solution for "right hand" bug? :D
i looked a little in OBJECT2.pak ...I do not know programming but it seems doubtful thousand :

"ul Weapon0 = 3 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 3 = Right Arm
ul Weapon1 = 2 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 2 = Left Arm
ul Weapon2 = 1 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 1 = Torso
ul Weapon3 = 1 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 1 = Torso
ul Weapon4 = 1 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 1 = Torso
ul Weapon5 = 1 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 1 = Torso
ul Weapon6 = 1 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 1 = Torso
ul Weapon7 = 0 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 0 = Bottom
ul Weapon8 = 0 // Which part is this weapon attached to. 0 = Bottom"

all mechs show about the same...on first line :
weapon0=3 Which part is this weapon attached to. 3 = Right Arm
can this be the cause? :-??

They stand still, but after you move your mechs they target the desired location.

No, they wont....we tested it if you remember :)

They target desired location only in very close range and only if they stand still, and with a signifiant penalty on accuracy. If i remember corectly is 75% penalty for targeting Head, 50% torso and 25% arms/legs.
But as soon as you move mechs, they target enemy randomly, like in standard atack.

Maybe its a bug, maybe not...but anyway will be nice to rework it.
Should i post it in Bugs section?


And about R.Arm bug....you all know this...
will be very nice to see weapons asigned on both sides of a mech...not all in Right Arm...(just like on emeny Bot mechs).
