PlatformOSOS Version
Product Version0.44.08 
Target VersionFixed in Version0.44.09 
Summary0010682: Archery broken; even highly skilled crossbowmen cannot hit targets
DescriptionAs reported by BadCompany141 in the v0.44.08 release thread:

Something went horribly wrong with ranged attacks in this version; they do not hit the target in the cursor, same for hostiles firing stuff at you, I don't even get announcements of the opponents' ranged attack missing me. This is happening in adventure mode even with legendary skills, in which I'm certain that this could be transferred into fortress mode

I swapped versions on a save made in .07 to current one .08, that's where the problem becomes apparent. I made a fresh extract from current version's zip file to see if the problem was present in object testing arena. It turns out that it is, even with units that have grand master archer/bow skill and a hundred arrows. not a single shot was landed after a lengthy exchange

its not game breaking but the ranged mechanic doesn't even function at this point

tl;dr you cant hit anything with ranged in this version unless I am the only one to have this much !!fun!!

Steps To ReproduceCreate two opposing crossbowdwarves in the object testing arena and watch as bolts fly without producing any injuries or combat reports.

Is happening to me now in fortress mode. Ranged attacks were working previously. Noticed it stopped 9 years into the fort during a goblin siege. But it might have stopped earlier. I haven't been shooting many bolts until now and I wasn't paying much attention before. Also my weapon traps don't seem to be working on the goblins... Not sure why. [^]

According to Toady, this should be fixed in 44.09 but needs clarification.
