After 3.7.0 release: 80 Issues reported
After 3.8.0 Patch: (080 Issues - 34 Fixed + 88 New) = 134 Issues
After 3.9.0 Patch: (134 Issues - 31 Fixed + 68 New) = 171 Issues
After 3.9.2 Patch: (171 Issues - 15 Fixed + 35 New) = 191 Issues
After 3.9.3 Patch: (191 Issues - 19 Fixed + 15 New) = 187 Issues
After 3.9.4 Patch: (187 Issues - 42 Fixed + 69 New) = 214 Issues

A comprehensive third-party list of 214 * Known Harpoon [ANW] Issues has been exhaustively collected on HarPlonkHQ since the release of Harpoon ANW 3.7.0 Now that the 3.9.4 patch has been released, the list has been checked to see what has changed. While it is by no means definitive, it is believed that:

These 42 behaviours appear to have been resolved by the 3.9.4 patch:
  1. Cannot meet for UnRep
    Ships are unable to plot a path for UnRep when ordered to do so.
  2. Cannot rescind re-fuel order
    It is not possible to rescind air-to-air re-fueling order once it is issued.
  3. CTD on re-load
    CTD while attempting to re-load same scenario file previously opened.
  4. Delayed On-Station ViCond Faulty
    Delayed On-Station ViCond does not wait for delay time to expire before evaluating.
  5. F6 Key will not attack
    F6 Key will not attack target.
  6. Ferry Mission fails to launch
    Ferry Mission that executed properly in 3.9.0 fails to launch in 3.9.3
  7. HAWKs fire into ground
    HAWKs fire directly into the ground
  8. Helo Intercepts sub at Med Alt
    Helo Intercepts sub at Med Alt when F6 command given.
  9. Incorrect re-load count
    Planes have high number of re-loads assigned, but there are insufficient AAMs to justify this number.(Originally reported by Bart Gauvin)
  10. Multiple Edit windows opened
    Multiple Edit windows can be opened but they can't be closed.
  11. Nav Zones re-set by mission editor
    Nav Zones are re-set by mission editor every time a mission is edited.
  12. On-Station ViCond non-functional
    On-Station ViCond non-functional in GE but functional in SE.
  13. Planes cannot re-load
    Planes show zero re-loads available when AirOps [F6] button depressed. However, re-loads are available when AirOps is selected for individual hangars and runway.
  14. Planes refuse to launch
    Planes requiring Small/Med runway refuse to launch from a base equipped with Medium runways. (From Petterr)
  15. Ready display always visible
    Aircraft ready display shows all planes available at a base regardless of the Base's ability to launch them. Previously, when a base was damaged, those aircraft not able to launch (i.e. Large/VLarge planes) no longer showed up in the Ready menu until the runway was repaired.
  16. Sonobuoy mission cancels
    Sonobuoy mission cancels on its own due to inability to deploy active sonobuoy and causes all other helo sonobuoy formation patrols to revert to Minimal loadout. (Originally reported by Vincenzo Beretta)
  17. SSMs ignore delayed strike mission
    Land-based SSMs ignore delay time for Strike missions.
  18. Sub goes active on ASuW
    Sub goes active on ASuW area patrol mission even though mission setting is for EmCon.

  21. Unarmed units not engaged
    Unarmed units will not be engaged by AI units (sub or ship) on Plotted mission. This is due to the fact that the targets pose no 'threat' to the AI unit thus elicits no response. Once weapons are added to the targets, they are immediately attacked.
  22. ViCond triggers in SP but not MP
    Damage ViCond triggers in SP but not MP.
  23. Sub stops when surfacing
    Sub rises to surface and stops. (Originally reported by Freek Schepers)
  24. Full speed over 140kts
    Ship group shows full speed of 15+131kts.
  25. Submarine control lost
    Submarine control lost when sole ship is sunk.
  26. Group speed differs from plane speed
    Air groups have different speed from individual plane speed in MP.
  27. Wrong loadout descriptions
    Helix helos are show the wrong loadout descriptions. Display is Mk44 torp, but they revert to Minimal when launched.
  28. Torpedo dives past max depth
    Target at -1200m cannot be engaged directly, but torpedoes fired on BOL will still dive below the maximum depth of their propulsion system (-500m) to kill target
  29. Torpedo dives 1000M instantly
    Torpedoes will instantly dive 1200m to hit target
  30. CTD when altitude changed
    CTD when altitude changed
  31. Torpedoes ignore cruise depth
    Torpedoes ignore cruise depth set by the database even when the "Level Cruise Flight" flag has been set and a value has been entered in the "Cruise Altitude" field. They stay at the depth at which they were fired.
  32. Active sonobuoys do not deploy
    CASS Active Sonar Sonobuoys carried by S-2 Trackers do not deploy when the "Drop Active Sonobuoy (])" hotkey is depressed. However, they do deploy with "Drop Passive Sonobuoy ([)". "," and "." hotkeys seem to work properly.
  33. Ferry mission fails to launch
    Ferry mission fails to launch unless manually ordered to do so.
  34. Passive sonobuoys will not deploy
    Passive sonobuoys will not deploy with "[" hotkey. Active sonobuoys will deploy.
  35. AI subs will not stop re-charging
    Sub never stops re-charging.
  36. CTD running new scen in SE
    CTD occurs when new scenarios are written and immediately run in SE.
  37. Unable to Pause game in MP
    Unable to Pause game in MP. Game starts immediately and cannot stop. Also causes problems with ghost sessions on some servers.
  38. MP Unpause malfunction
    After pause button has been depressed in MP, the game does not respond when user hits F12 to continue unless player uses [+] [-] keys to change the compression selection, first.
  39. False Weapons Free status
    Tutorial 6 starts with Weapons Free status already enabled, but aircraft do not recognize it. [Originally reported by Eugene Smith]
  40. Unable to delete aircraft
    Only some aircraft can be deleted from a base
  41. Indestructible units in new scen
    Unit from the other side cannot be destroyed in newly created scen
  42. Player loses control
    Player loses control of all units in the middle of a game.

These 145 behaviours do not appear to have been resolved by the 3.9.4 patch:
  1. AAA fire
    AAA guns are not limited by the altitude of the target and can even shoot down satellites.
  2. Automatic contact classification
    The true type classification of a contact is automatically revealed when it is designated hostile by the hotkey.
  3. Group Nav Zone Settings
    The Nav Zone settings for a Group are not adopted by the individual units forming that Group. i.e. If you order a TF to avoid Ship Threat Zone [A], the Group icon will avoid the Threat Zone but the individual ships of the Group will sail into the Threat Zone.

    Work-around solution: Set the Nav Zone parameters for each unit individually.
  4. Subs in groups
    Subs joined with groups are automatically assigned a formation patrol zone on the ASW axis that cannot be changed or modified.
  5. Hangar overload
    It is possible to land many more aircraft than the hangar capacity allows.
  6. AI inside Minimum Launch Range
    If an AI unit finds itself inside the Minimum Launch Range of its weapons, it is unable to move away in order to fire its weapons.
  7. MAD contact for ground facilities
    The MAD detector is able to detect ground facilities.
  8. ARMs cause planes to hang
    Aircraft armed with Anti-Radiation Missiles and bombs will continue to hang over a target once the bombs are released if they have not fired their ARMs. This will occur even if ARMs cannot be fired at the target in question.
  9. Opening 3.6.3 scen causes crash
    Opening this scenario in ANW causes Crash. Scenario opens and runs fine in H3.6.3
  10. Ready times go wild when AI Formation Air Patrols activated
    Ready times go wild when AI Formation Air Patrols activated. This does not appear when the AI option is not enabled.
  11. All ammo not available
    300 rounds of ammo are shown, but only 44 are offered for fire allocation.
  12. Plane ignores Nav Zone
    Plane totally ignores Nav Zone
  13. Mission ignores target list
    Targets not restricted to target list for mission.
  14. Weapon ignores range limitation
    Weapon sometimes ignores range limitation and fires on targets outside of the range set by the Database. This can sometimes result in guns hitting targets 100s of miles away. Often, it occurs when the target is vaguely detected.
  15. Hidden units can be destroyed without detection
    When hidden units are part of a group, attacks on the Group Icon can destroy the hidden units without the need to ever detect them.
  16. Units out of range can be destroyed
    Units out of range can be destroyed if they are part of a group.
  17. Sonobuoy deployment altitude
    Sonobuoys can be deployed at any altitude.
  18. Ground units attacked by Ship Strike mission
    Units assigned to Ship Strike missions will attack ground facilities.
  19. Ships attacked by Ground Strike mission
    Units assigned to Ground Strike missions will attack ships.
  20. Active sonobuoys dropped passively
    Sonobuoys with active-only sonar systems are dropped in passive mode even when the "Drop Active Sonobuoy" hotkey is depressed.
  21. Max launch speed restriction
    When a unit is travelling faster than the Maximum Allowable Launch Speed of the weapons it is carrying and tries to fire them, the weapon allocation table appears and the player is mistakenly given the choice of firing the weapon. The window no longer displays a warning message and restricts player from attempts to fire.
  22. Hellfire do not launch in ODb
    Hellfire missiles will not launch even though they appear in the weapons allocation window.
  23. CTD when Database button is depressed
    When playing Multi-player games, scenarios will sometimes crash to the desktop when the Database button has been depressed.

    [Edit] With the Patch 3.9.0 release, this issue no longer results in CTD. However, it is still erroneous.
  24. Mission fails to navigate without Full throttle setting
    Aircraft without a "Full speed" throttle setting in the database are fully functional under manual control, but are unable to calculate a path to their targets under AI control.
  25. Planes directly inserted ignore target list
    Planes directly inserted ignore targets listed in strike missions. However, planes that launch on those same strike missions will obey the target strike list and not attack any target not on the list.
  26. All strikers fail to launch
    All aircraft assigned to a strike mission fail to launch.
  27. Protect ViCond doesn't evaluate properly
    Protect ship Victory Condition does not evaluate properly.
  28. Game ends abruptly
    When playing Multi-player games, scenarios will end at incorrect times. One side gets a message that it has not fulfilled the ViConds and has lost. He is then kicked from the game even though there is plenty of time remaining. This occurs more often during "high" time compression rate (1:60+).
  29. Altitude mis-match between Group and units
    Units and Group icons show different altitude values in SE.
  30. ASW/WH torps tracking wrong targets
    WH/ASW torps tracking targets they cannot hit.
  31. Min engine altitude ignored
    Min engine altitude ignored for Trident SLBM. Missile can be launched from a depth deeper that allowed by the engine parameters.
  32. SSM Altitude crash
    Land-based SSMs appear to crash into the surface after launch and ignore their cruise altitude.
  33. TALD materialize at wrong point
    When firing lots of missiles i.e. TALD, the missiles all originate from the same point even when the plane moves away.
  34. Time compression causes miss
    Higher time compression creates automatic miss.
  35. Weapon Max Launch Speed ignored
    Weapons ignore Maximum Launch Speed set in database.
  36. Phantom air group
    Phantom air group.
  37. Re-Charge at Int depth
    Subs are reported to be re-charging batteries at Intermediate depth, but it is not known if charge levels actually increase.
  38. Ammo dumps emptied
    Ammo dumps in all ODb scenarios have been emptied of weapons for aircraft.
  39. Ground targets re-engaged prematurely
    Targets are being re-engaged prematurely. Missiles are still in flight when successive attacks are launched thus wasting weapons.
  40. Map Scale inaccurate
    Map scale is erroneous.
  41. Max altitude for planes is 32,767m
    The Max altitude for planes is now 32,767m. Previously, it was unlimited and could simulate satellite platforms.

    MP Saved game titles often use portions of the orders in lieu of the Session name.
  43. SSK rises early
    Diesel subs rise to Periscope depth long before their batteries are exhausted.
  44. Unassign command sound missing
    Use of the Unassign Hotkey command on groups will elicit an audible "ping". However, this audible cue is missing when the same command is issued to individual units.
  45. AAW patrol motionless
    AAW patrol motionless instead of flying between assigned reference points.
  46. Accuracy slider changes combat II

  52. Generic strikes seek additional targets
    Generic strikes seek additional targets after initial target is destroyed even if secondary targets have no relation to original target.
  53. Indexation status false
    ANW Launcher claim that "most community-databases do not support" indexation by Time and Country is false.
  54. Missiles drawn to wrong targets

  58. Ready Times shortened
    Aircraft with long ready times can have them shortened to the default 30 minutes.
  59. Sanity check fails for multiple weapons records
    Sanity check reports an error when a Quantity value >1 is entered beside a Weapons Record in either the Loadout tabel or the Magazine table even though this causes no problem for the game, itself.
  60. Sanity check fails for propulsion alt bands
    Sanity check reports an error if altitude bands for propulsion entries are not in sequential order.
  61. Sanity check fails for propulsion max alt
    Sanity check fails to report an error if the max altitude for the propulsion system is greater than the allowable altitude for aircraft. Maximum altitude for aircraft is 32,767m but maximum engine operational altitude value can be set higher.
  62. Sanity check fails for Ready Times
    Sanity check fails to account for different Ready Times in loadout table. Loadouts that have identical weapons with only differ in Ready Times are identified as 'duplicate' entries by the Sanity Check.
  63. Sensor default values are zero
    When Sensor menu [F9] is activated for individual units or groups, all default values are Zero. Previously, the default values were 1 min Active followed by 5 minutes Passive for all types of sensors. Proper default values of 1min/5min appear if a group of separate units are "drag-selected" and then the F9 hotkey is depressed.
  64. Sonar detects facility
    Land facility detected by sonar.
  65. Strike Mission fails to cancel

  98. Focused strike not firing
    Artillery does not fire on a Focused Land Strike mission even when Weapons Free.
  99. Formation patrols ignore axis
    Formation patrols ignore axis when assigned patrol zones in the Formation editor. Most often, the patrols appear offset from the actual Threat Axis. i.e. if the Threat Zone is pointing North and a Patrol zone is assigned to it, the ship may take up a patrol zone 90 degrees off the intended placement. This occurs primarily in multi-player games, but has been reported in SP (by Shemar), too.
