Hello, I decided to make a thread & video about the most common version of the ZiS bug and explain how exactly it gets triggered, so that people can try to avoid it in their games.
At the end of the barrage, the crew steps away from the gun for 0.5 sec as you may have noticed. If you issue an order in that exact moment, the gun bugs out. So make sure you don't spam click when you come close to the 4th shell, try to make sure the animation gets finished completely. Giving orders before the 4th round has been fired is not a problem

This is very helpful, now I can finally test some changes!
So I changed the 'use_accessory_weapon' action to an 'artillery_attack' action which has no functional differences as far as I know, but the crew doesn't re-setup the weapon now.
Could you help me test it? I haven't been able to reproduce it yet with these changes:
You need to save it in: C:\Users\NAME\Documents\my games\company of heroes 2\mods\tuning.
Consistent reproduction of a bug does wonders when it comes to game (software) development. Excellent work!
