As posted on Maplantis:

In all of my previous mods ( my first, NovaCraft, with Tempest Replay, and a bunch of unfinished/testbed mods ) , I've had troubles with the Firebat.
When I tell it to attack, it'll shoot once, and then just do nothing. He'll stand there with his arms raised, refusing to rptattk. Depending on just how I change it, he'll even freeze there, ignoring any subsequent commands I give him.
If you look at any of my mods, I've modified plenty, plenty of other attack scripts. I've tried completely replacing the Firebat iscript ( including header information ) with the Ghost's, and then changing appropriate values ( ID, imgul pointers, etc. ) , but still no luck.

Anyone know why? Hardcoded, some obscure *.dat value I've overlooked?

I'm not sure, but sometimes you need to add an "ignorerest" (IceCC 1.3) at the end of the attack script.

Ghosts ( and almost all units, for that matter ) include that opcode. So that's not the problem.

It's solved now ( for those interested, the Maplantis thread has more replies and information ) . Apparently, Firebats want to have a Goto FirebatWalkingToIdle opcode before the next animation header ( i.e., InitialGroundAttkToIdle ) , whereas most units just need it to be in the sequence
