Description

Ok I know this is intended but the bug here is that when you choose primary and secondary weapons both MP40 or Thompson, it says that but you only get 1 MP40/Thompson. Maybe restrict to be able to choose them from both primary and secondary weapons.

I fixed the double Thomson/MP40 message in b4138e41b0edb32b2b26e54a6389a89b29e30219.

I am however not sure about restricting the choice in the menu: In fact, this might prove to be annoying. By selecting Thomson as primary, you would not be able to choose it as secondary weapon before selecting another primary weapon (and vice versa).

Suggestions are welcome here. The message now shows that only 1 weapon will be selected, and if people think this is enough, I’d consider this bug fixed.

I think it is disadvantageous for a soldier to have only one weapon to shoot with. I think the best solution would be that telecting two MP40s/Thompsons would be restricted and you would be just able to pick MP40 as primary and pistol or two as secondary.

Otherwise the message is now fixed but I don’t keep this as a permanent solution.

No. The purpose of HW lvl 4 skill is to have MP40/Thomson in addition to the main HW weapon (instead of having HW + pistol).
Restricting it to primary is a no go. Any other suggestion?

#7 Updated by Saukko about 5 years ago

I might have explained myself unclearly here. What I meant was that when you slect MP40/Thompson as primary, then limbomenu restricts the MP40/Thompson possibility and forces you to pick a pistol or akimbo. So you won’t end up having only MP40/Thompson which literally makes no sense.

Have you read what I wrote above restricting it in the menu? What are your thought about it?

As a workaround, we could also change the message to "You will spawn as a soldier with a Thomson/MP40 ONLY".

#9 Updated by Saukko about 5 years ago

Yeah that’s something I might have missed. I don’t really find it annoying myself. And in my opinion it looks the most logical way to solve this issue. When you have chosed that primary MP40/Thompson, then you can’t get it as secondary. But why would one choose secondary first anyway? Well then it works the other way around.

I got an update to this. When you choose your class by console commands it gives the messages shown on the new screenshot.

As a sidenote I would like to consider changing some of the class selection texts. Here’s an example of it’s faultiness: "... with a MP40 and a Akimbo Lugers.
It’s not "a Akimbo Lugers" anyway.

Also considerable feature to replace the weapon texts with icons possibly.
