I just started playing again after quite a while of leaving it be.  I found a small town (three buildings) with a fire station.  Whenever I try to use the winch it just says nothing happens.  Is this a glitch or working as intended?

Never happened to me.
Usually the fire station has a small room in which you can operate the winch  and a metal door beside it opens (not the rolling shutters, but a small door).

I'll keep an eye on it and maybe test it manually later.  It's what the debug tools are for.

Did a fireman start and am unable to enter the firestation again.  Going to report this as a bug.

usually it implies that the type of wench used does not match the explicit wall its trying to operate through.  There is a wench for each type of wall that the game reasonably expects to have to 'wench through'.

Hardcoded object is hardcoded.

what version?  the newest expie?

Newest.  I used the launcher.  It's why I haven't filed a report yet so I can make sure of the details. :P

Damn wenches... so picky about what doors they'll open and what doors they won't open.  You know what?  Someone should invent a tool that will open the door for you instead of needing to train and feed wenches all the time...  we could call it a winch.

Which lets you have winch-wenches, which are wenches which winch winches.

I'm going to have to check into this again.  I just realized my CCDDA launcher was pointing at the wrong directory for some reason.  Sorry for the confusion.
