Hrm. Any idea what you were over? Did others stop in the air too?

Gophur,

This happened before this patch was uploaded also.

Right at the end of the last campaign there was an allied para drop over Ramsgate, was a Dubane mission if you need clarification.

Cut a long story short....was a high drop and about 50 paras all froze in the air unable to move.

I could post screenshots but I doubt they would tell you much, let me know though.

a .report can be found from almost a month ago whereby a large troop of Axis paratroopers were stuck above ANTWERP and did a lot of reports about it.

Since then - I have flown in paratroops and jumped paratroop with no problem.

No idea if I passed through clouds or not - but I doubt it. This may be a HIGH JUMP issue.

There is also another series of reports from I believe Kamperland or somewhere in the north where a plane full of axis troopers got stuck in the clouds. Paras only seem to get stuck at high altitude.

OK so rare but it happens. Third person sees all of them stuck in the air.

Do all of the paras also report struck?

Just to clarify.

Now for the big one, I need to replicate it.

Experienced one of these events with some allied paras on Saturday night. We were jumping on Tongeren (sp?) I believe and after exiting the bird the entire stick was suspended (parachutes deployed for all paras) in line one right after another.

I've got screenies, but I'm not sure what good they are. I will post or pass them along if needed.

We were French paras; flew out of Gilze; about 15 on the jump; Altitude unknown but we were definitely in the soup up there.

I am thinking if this should be rated with 3 more parameters:

1)
Did any of the "stuck" paras make a quick switch between brigades just before? <- should be the update bug again, or the issues where we earlier (dec-11) had CTDs... today that shows itself as LONG waits before comin into mission

2)
What did the plane do? Instant despawn? Made a quick turn? Historically (for me 1,5 years ago) there was often a bug where paras shute did not open (or vanished) when using steering (Q and E). But if staying around with plane so paras still render for plane pilot I managed to have less paras dying on me as pilot.

3)
I have not had so many para drops lately, but the one where I had a stuck para was made when para door did not open. Was about to give green light with key "o" and it would not open. Probably because of high speed. So maybe this has to do with "allowing" paras to j out of the plane at to high speed.


Own details of the problem: I saw this as late of friday 30th march, where I made a low altitude drop (700m) and one of 16 paras got stuck in mid-air, and of course a recruit which was most excited about the whole thing. His first jump... and stuck...

I had this happen to me today dropping north of Liege in the open near Vise FB. As soon as I left the plane I was stuck.

Free look showed my chute as not open but 3rd person when I despawned showed me hanging from the harness.

I wonder if this is also related to the change of state bug plaguing other parts of the game. Perhaps something to do with the plane and not properly communicating the change from IN to OUT.


It also gave me an RTB to no specific flag, isn't this what happens when you try to despawn as a passenger in a plane?

I think this has to be a collider bug with infantry.

I'd bet it has to do with jump altitude or what you jump over.

I can replicate something odd on beta but not sure that's it. I'll ticket for a look anyway.
