Is that still happening in the current dev? I can't see any state where it could get permanently stuck like that (unless it's targeting something else) but I've added one more check.

Are the sights supposed to be this far off when aiming at an angle now? They're pretty much completely unusable at the extreme end.

Thanks for that example.

Yes, it is. The only thing the recent commit to the commando changed was that they now immediately scan turn on spawn, unprovoked, sort of making them a kind of sentry now. Which, admittedly, I think is a good change.

The problem that still persists is that once they're in the scan turn state, they explicitly only leave this state when they have LoS with their target, or get hurt and/or acquire a new target. While normally fine when out in the normal confines of a map, this pretty much always breaks (especially now with the recent commit) teleport trap rooms that are only meant to have linked sound sectors and nothing more. It breaks teleport traps in that the spinning commando itself never moves from its pivot point, causing at the very least the commando itself to be absent from the ambush and not teleport in, but more often than not, it additionally causes a jam in the teleport closet because the commando body blocks other monsters from reaching the teleport linedef. If there was some random duration to scan turning so that it's not indefinite, or alternatively, the commando only scan turns when it gains LoS with a target, then the issue should be solved.

So there are situations where that happens! -_- I'll fix it when I get home.

Thanks for that.

Somewhere along these crosshair changes, some visual oddities popped up, mainly massive Y drops in the view sprites: the hunter shotgun has a highly exaggerated recoil when fired, causing the view sprite to drop by around 25 pixels/units of offset. Slayer is unaffected. Revolver has a large view sprite drop as well, along with the thunder buster while firing, ZM66 when chambering a round, and the boss rifle when racking the bolt, but not while firing.

Another visual error is that the ZM66 now shifts to the left slightly when you chamber a round, and it stays there, out of alignment.

Everything else -seems- like they're unaffected from these changes. Visually, anyway.

For recoil, the new A_OverlayScale would be quite nice to make the sprites appear to push slightly toward the player's eyes.

First part was a mistaken assumption where I thought WEAPONTOP added to the offset, but second I'm not getting. EDIT: got it, it's like 2 sprite pixels and it persists for all weapons across maps.


EDIT: why the hell is (1>>1) 0 while (-1>>1) -1!??!?

When is HD 4.8 coming out approximately? Or is it better to wait for the update for gzdoom 4.9?

HERPs when wielded with zoom seem to have the sprite bob in the opposite direction as the weapon itself, and when strafing with 3 loaded mags the weapon seems to drift far beyond a reasonable distance from center. The second issue seems to go away when the HERP is loaded with 2 or fewer mags.
Blooper sprite offsets seem to end up way too high if you sprint and then queue up a reload/unload.

The inverted bobbing is actually a universal problem, it was caused by this commit. The crossbob.x logic just needs to be made negative like it was before the commit.

Apparently I'd somehow left the X offset in the simplified UpdateCrossBob backwards for over 24 hours, playing multiple maps in the time between, and never noticed until now. :shock:

Everything should more or less be working now.

Speaking of Blooper offsets, the pickup sprite is way off to the right.

All the weapon bobbing seems pretty aligned and smooth now, thankfully. Only thing I noticed is that some unload animations have slight jitter to them but IMO, they still have a good, fairly believable feel to them. All, except the BFG. There's a fair amount of jank in it's unload animation currently.
