Falcon 4 bms 4.33 U2 Upgrade

Generic Information & Known issues:
– The build number string in the Falcon UI will read “4.33.2 Build 15754” after the update

* Client: added new command line/config option “noblock”(B), if set, the blocking tone will not play if you PTT and there is already someone talking on the same channel (just a convenience option for ppl who can’t stand the blocking tone)
– Fixed for CTD in “PackageClass::RemoveChild()”
– Fixed wingman AI (Human wingman/flight, not happening to pure AI flights) dropping munitions that dropped in sets (e.g a set of JDAMs) on exactly the same target when they are expected to pick targets randomly
– Small fix for AI climbing to JDAM drop altitude too late in the pass
– Fixed CTD on AWACS Check-in
– Added a config variable “g_bDisableIRObjectTexturing” that will allow disabling texturing of objects in an IR MFD view. When the ground is relatively bright (e.g yellow desert, like seen a lot in ITO) the BHOT/WHOT of the ground/objects rendering doesn’t work so well when the object’s texturing is enabled, i.e objects are dark when ground is dark and bright when ground is as well, thus creating color blindness. This config variable will help disabling the texturing which is causing this. The texturing is OK for most of time so it should only be used if necessary:
* set g_bDisableIRObjectTexturing 1
* Default is 0/false
– Fixed MANPADs not launching in the correct direction
– Fixed the missileClass KillGroundSpot crash (AKA VuHashTable::Remove CTD).
– Fixed a bug when firing the last HARM not in POS mode caused the WPN page to go totally blank, now it’ll go to OFF mode as expected
– Fixed anti-collision light stuck in ON when toggled at the “correct” time
– Fixed uncaged IR missiles occasionally “jumping” to another target
– ALE-47, VMS: only play “Chaff-Flare” when CMs really leave the AC, and not at program initiation
– Fixed wind direction error of 180 deg when reading/saving a map
– Fixed SimAPOverride setting Fuel Flow to 0 while on ground
– Weapons will now be moved back to squadron stores if a flight is deleted from ATO
– New supply code (can be disabled via “set g_bNewSupplyCode 0” in *.cfg):
* We now use sorted lists with high priority recipients first
* Supply bonus received by a team when going into offensive now is dependent on available (not yet destroyed) production sources
* When a flight uses a weapon which is no longer available in squadron stores, all other weapons will be reduced by 5%
* Supply code can be made “verbose” (MonoPrints) for via *.cfg variable (set g_nSupplyDebug_Team, -1 = off, 0 = team 0, 1 = team 1, …, 8 = all teams)
– Battalions now will lose supplies depending on the ground action (when battalion is moving) and also while doing nothing (can be adjusted via variable “BattalionSupplyAttritionTime” in *.aii, default is 6 hours)
– New challenge rating code, we’ll adjust supply time instead of unit vehicle slots (for disabling add “set g_bNewChallengeRatingCode 0” to the *.cfg)
– Supply code will not fill-up more weapons to the stores than we had originally anymore
– Fixed CTD in case of: select a radar with your HAD/HTS; bring the HAD target indicator symbol into the HUD; hit ICP7/MARK – select HUD mark mode; slew HUD mark circle over the HAD target indicator and press TMS up; hit DCS-return to reset to the CNI page – game crashes at this point
– Fixed a bug that caused Laser JDAM at Release moment to override the laser code that was entered in the SMS control page, with the default laser code that came from munitions page
– Better management of IDM addresses, fixes for IDM inconsistencies when a flight in the package was destroyed
– Fixed SMS page being removed from preset when performing an Emergency Jettison
– Fixed VLS missile skyrocketting when fired on NOE target
– Better management of BORE/SLAV setting for AA missiles:
* BORE/SLAV “main” setting will be common to all missiles and specific for each master mode, and changed only via OSB
* Cursor/enable in “deadman” will apply opposite of current “main” MM setting as long as it is pressed, regardless of missile changes or MM changes
* cursor/enable in “toggle” will act exactly as OSBs
– Fixes and general work for ARH SLAV launches without bugged target as well as BORE launches, a missile fired in BORE with a bugged target will no longer go after said bugged target+couple of fixes/adjustments for radio calls
– Fixed MFD ownship bullseye symbol (bullseye coords were affected by SPI offset)
– Fixed rocket CCIP pipper jumping all over the place
– Fixed bug in TE Victory Conditions screen when Engagement Type doesn’t reflect real loaded mission type and is always set to last value used in TE Editor, training missions are set as Sortie there (Training type is missing from dropdown because TRNs are not editable in Falcon UI)
– Fixed bug where Change Skin Button on Munition screen was always in effect after user pressed it once, now selected skin resets every time you open mission or campaign
