Hi all,

I would like to make an enquiry here regarding the Jagdpanzer IV, since we haven't figured this out ourselves yet.

Basically I noticed that since the patch, the Jagdpanzer IV will not automatically rotate to engage targets within its range while it is in camouflage mode.


Now we're actually not sure whether or not this has always been the case or that it's a bug that was introduced with the new patch. I'd swear this is new behaviour. But at least one other member of the team thinks it never auto rotated while in camo.


So, does anyone happen to know for sure whether or not it it would automatically rotate to target enemy vehicles while in camouflaged mode before the Winter Balance Patch?

This is not a new issue. I have same problem before. Sometimes, JP4 decides not to attack nearby vehicles in camo and I have to manually target them.

There was always a problem I had pointed out in several occasions before the patch.

Old problem imho which led to me turning off camo on the thing, inconsistent turning. I think it would turn some of the time in camo, but not always.(Perhaps related to the angular speed of the target? Fast moving vehicles seemed to be more problematic in the past) Could not afford the risk that a med would speed past and the resulting bad position.

Disclaimer: Have not tried it in the new patch.

It has behaved this way off and on for as long as I can remember.

Since the mod tools haven't been updated, this could be tested by copying all of the JP4 files from the AE and seeing if the behavior is different.
