I was playing online co-op and I was using Varcolac, my partner was using Cariburn. I had LSWM (LWSM?) equipped, but what's odd is that my partner was firing them too.

But Cariburn doesn't have that weapon... only Fenrir and Varcolac do...
you know the saying.... "Chocolate ants don't crawl"

Was this player hacking, or is there just a trick to equip any weapon on a plane? Or maybe I was just mistaken? (It was Desert Gust, joint assault version, after all... so maybe it was a missile launch? seems really dumb of me if that was the case...)

On that note, I've seen users mention a "retry trick" so that you can equip the same weapon twice. How do you do this?

Fortunately, hackers are a rare sight in JA (I would say PSP games, but Dissidia is plagued by it). But they do exist.

I've seen a Varcolac hacker before in Multiplayer. I was following him, and when I fired at him, he fired off way too many IRCMs. There should've been only one ball, but there were at least 10.

IRCM's are actually visisble? I had no idea...

I don't think I even bother trying them yet. (thought about it though, just to test them) But it sucks that you can't even see them since you fire them backwards.

also, with weapons like IRCM (and the other one) I always thought they should fire automatically when you switch to it. (I.e. switching weapon doesn't switch weapon, instead it just fires one.)

ok I tried IRCM's while in Fregata and you can see it when you fire it, and when you look back.

Not sure on its effectiveness, or whether it can be used to help allies, but it looks kewl! You can only fire one at a time though.

JA doesn't have built-in cheats. He's referring to hacking.

by the way, about IRCMs,

ACX had a weapon like that (some anti-lockon weapon) and these are in ACJA too. (so ACJA has two "anti-missile" weapons)
But I always assumed they did was IRCM's are supposed to do.
So apparently they do something else entirely. (prevent a missile from being fired at you, rather than disrupting the lock on of an already fired missile?)
In any case I found them not very effective, and clunky to use. (you have to switch weapon, fire, then switch back, and it lasts like what, 5 seconds)

I swear I saw "infinite ammo"... That has to be built in, or else the game would not recognize that command...

Nah man. You just need to freeze the variable for the weapon count so it wouldn't go down after each shot.

In VS multiplayer, infinite ammo IS in fact an option you can use. I've used it before. When the only thing dependent on victory is how many lives you have left, it sets you up for a LONG battle ahead of you.

say can IRCM's damage enemies? After all they damage you when the Spiridus uses them.
It's chip damage and not likely to make a difference, but still hilarious.

Has anyone ever seen a Boeing 767
launching a LSWM ???

Yeah. For whatever reason, a 767 is equipped by default with LSWM, but it takes an Infinite Ammo cheat to figure this out.
