Haywire Protocol bug fix for turret control

Bugfix to get turrets to remain hacked permanently the way Haywire Protocol describes them in ability details.
Also fixes the actual hack interface UI to show this correctly as well.

v1.1 Update: Removed the excess class files that were increasing the size of the mod. Size decreased by 99% :D

Feb 19th, 2016: Now on NexusMods per request as well! Here's the link! http://www.nexusmods.com/xcom2/mods/299/?

does this mod work with TLP?
Have not tested, but I'd like to know

hi can you also make a mod that if you hack a robot it remains hacked PLZ

Made me think that the fix for the basegame would've been to change the localisation text, as that's where the error was: it hadn't been updated from pre-release behaviour.

Yep @Dragon32 that was what this mod was about. Well config file change more than a mod really I guess, but it does "mod-ify" the game I suppose. I just changed the config to work according to the ingame description of the ability.

I guess they changed/updated it for WOTC. Not sure what that WOTC mod is supposed to do but it seems to go way beyond this mod and buff the hack?

TBH I have no clue if this even works in WOTC, I still haven't bought it. Waiting for it to go way down in price.

Interesting. Just seen this mod: [WOTC] Hacking Proficiency

Made me check the localisation files for WotC:
[HaywireProtocol X2AbilityTemplate]
LocPromotionPopupText=[...] Hacked robotic enemies can only be controlled for a short time."

Versus base game:
[HaywireProtocol X2AbilityTemplate]
LocPromotionPopupText="[...] Hacked turrets will remain under your control for the duration of the mission, while other robotic enemies can only be controlled for a short time."

Could someone make a version where it makes all haywire control permanent for WOTC?

Works for me in WoTC.

I have no idea xNaquada, give it a whirl and let us know.

I don't have WoTC.

WoTC Compatible?
