Not sure if bug or working as intended with squid [RESOLVED]

Postby Mchief » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:46 pm

So the squid has been out now for a while so I have got to tango with it a few times in stealth, one thing that it seems to be doing that I'm not sure if it's a bug or working as intended is "ghost scanning" or applinging it's vis boost on programs when it's not on the node but thinking of going to that node( ie has not started the purple scanning thing) .

A few times I will see the squid scanning away and be accessing/wraithing my way through a network only for the vis bar to double in size as the squid now decides to move to the node I was on.

This should be a bug, considering both Hawk and Beetle's effects only applied when their projectile/laser connects to the targeted node.

You sure the vis doubling is not from Scanner tho..?

This sounds more like bug potential. As Dread correctly mentions, AIs don't apply their effects until their "projectile" reaches the node in question.

If this is not a hidden Scanner issue, could you post details of both the hack in question from the replayer, and your network details, and someone will take a closer look at it.

Ok so finally managed to get a good replay that shows this bug, hack is against a network named "Preacher" by myself "The_Plague" you can clearly see me install a wraith on a gate only for the vis speed to spike before the squid gets there.
