Formations: GetClosestMember passes wrong entity to filter function

Summary

The function is meant to filter out members that don't meet the filter criteria using a function.
It should pass the current member entity to the filter function and not the entity in the function argument list.

There's currently only one place in the code where the function is used with a filter. In UnitAI, it uses the "CanAttack" function to filter out entities that can't be attacked.
It filters out all entities there because it checks if an entity can attack itself rather than checking if the entity can attack the member of the enemy formation.

I've discovered this when I was experimenting with formations in my git branch. I'm unsure what the impact in SVN currently is.
In SVN we disband the formation when attacking and rarely/never attack a formation controller entity. The code might only be used if "CanAttackAsFormation" is true in the FormationAttack component. It's currently set to false for all formations.

Test Plan

The code is obviously wrong, but fixing it might still have some negative side effects.
A testcase should be found where issues can actually be reproduced. On the other hand, it's probably unused at the moment because the associated code is unfinished anyway.

Simple change, which is correct so can be committed.

This revision is now accepted and ready to land.Jan 28 2019, 9:54 AM

The last time someone has worked on formations, it was @temple.

Determining the impact would allow us to determine whether there are formation tickets that we could close.
There are 4 calls to GetClosestMember:

  • two of them are supposed to get a member and they might receive the formation controller entity. The controller entity is invincible if I recall correctly? So the bug visible to the user would have been units attacking nothingness / invincible enemies.
  • the other two calls are 'MoveToTargetAttackRange` / CheckTargetAttackRange and would move to the controller entitys, position which is somewhere near the members, but possibly out of attack range (temple had a patch to display it with a flag D1447).

At least all formation tickets I recall were about formation members being stuck, doing backflips and saltos instead of moving or attacking, so maybe there wasn't a related ticket.
Thanks for the patch.

Yves added a comment.Feb 3 2019, 10:52 AM

From these 4 calls, only one passes a filter argument to the function. The other 3 can be ignored because of the check "if (filter ...". The condition after that has no impact when filter is undefined.

Yves added a comment.Feb 3 2019, 1:50 PM

I've looked at the code a bit more. There actually is a case when this function is called with a filter.
It happens in the "ATTACKING" timer function when a formation is ordered to attack another formation and only if the target formation is already in range.
The code incorrectly assumes that there are no more targets to find and calls FinishOrder() plus FindNewTargets().

In general the formation code is currently a mess because half of it implements the current behaviour and the other half is code to implement some unclear future behaviour. Someone had an idea how it could work in the future, committed parts of it and then stopped working on it.
For example, there are many cases where the code falls back from formation attack to individual attack. If the formation is not in range when ordered to attack, it calls MoveToTargetAttackRange() which resets the target to the member unit rather than the formation controller. This means that the code for picking new targets from the enemy formation doesn't work anymore and the unit picks any target instead. Something similar happens here, too. GetClosestMember() returns INVALID_ENDITY and then by calling FindNewTargets(), we revert to general attack behaviour.

So basically it's just another case where a fallback to individual unit attack behaviour happens and since that's common anyway and hard to notice, it probably wasn't perceived as a bug.

In general, I wouldn't want to start changing the formation code in SVN before we have a working prototype of a new formation system. This case is special because it's a relatively simple change and clearly a bug.
What do you think? Commit or not?

In general there's the reason I tried to avoid looking into formations :P To determine how to fix one feature one has to determine how 10 related features should be fixed, for that we might have to know about a total 100 indirectly related features, .... If the features are not implemented and not properly predesigned, one has to design these in order to decide on the original fix. If one arrives at that point, one might just as well finish typing it out and compiling it for few months to implement all of that, even though one just wanted to fix one little bug.

This case is special because it's a relatively simple change and clearly a bug.
What do you think? Commit or not?

"Stakeholders":

  • Devs: Where one has to work with unknown future constraints, making the current behavior more consistent can make it easier to implement the unforeseen constraint in the future.
  • Author: Might have to revisit the patch months later in case there's a bug discovered.
  • Players: Making the formation behavior more consistent while fixing bugs sound good to the player in principle. Sometimes simulation changes can also break the gameplay in unexpected ways or trigger unexpected infinite loops (UnitAI). If one did a code walkthrough like you did, one can try to determine the exact consequences to the player.

So I can't speak about the diff in specific. I have insufficient knowledge to decide on the implementation or feature design, you will know better (and if there was a bugreport spammed next release, we will even know more for the release after that. Though usually the formation bugreports never make it into the reproductive debugging stage, at least for the time when temple is not involved).

(TLDR: good faith and empty phrases)

Angen added a comment.Feb 3 2019, 3:17 PM

We should realise that current behaviour returns only INVALID ENTITY if filter is passed what is cmpAttack. CanAttack and there is check if target is enemy esle returns false. So clearly unit cannot attack itself as is not enemy of itself.

Angen added a comment.Mar 19 2019, 7:54 PM

Uses of Formation.prototype.GetClosestMember
UnitAI.js
Line 184 - called without filter
Line 1920 - called with filter UnitAi.CanAttack(entity)
Line 4303 - called without filter
Line 4405 - called without fiter

Only case which actually matters for this change is on line 1920.
If attacker is formation controller, answer is always true.

Real filter function which makes decision is located in Attack component.
Current implementation with passing attacker entity into filter makes filter return false because of this checks looping attack types of attacker where in current state targetOwner is attackerOwner so player is not enemy and also not capturable so both
conditions force continue therefore final result is return false

if (type != "Capture" && (!cmpEntityPlayer.IsEnemy(targetOwner) || !cmpHealth || !cmpHealth.GetHitpoints()))
continue;

if (type == "Capture" && (!cmpCapturable || !cmpCapturable.CanCapture(entityOwner)))
continue;

which means that current filter usage with !filter(ent) means continue for every one member of this.members therefor return of GetClosestMember is INVALID_ENTITY

with this patch, filter returns closest member of this formation as intended.

Now
What does it mean for ATTACKING.Timer
This is called in case unit gets formation entity as target so target is switched to formation member which can be attacked and because it is valid entity, there is no harm to other parts of code.
(next command makes this canAttack check again anyway so double check on entity, I think it is safe)

But in case GetClosestMember returns INVALID_ENTITY (what is doing right now so no reason to worry because it cannot brake it by returning sometimes value which is returning every time now) is called cmpAttack.CanAttack what means
check against cmpPostion which does not exists on INVALID_ENTITY therefor return false

Well target is set to 0 = INVALID_ENTITY what means code if (target && cmpTargetFormation) which resets this.order.data.target back to formation entity is not executed, that means next order is to find new targets and
do not attack given formation controller again and proceeds as in any other case.

All things considered this patch can be committed without breaking anything.

@elexis could you commit this change?

Once someone starts doing anything with formations, having such a big around can only be annoying, so rather fix it beforehand.
