Issue #4304: [Dawnguard] Dwemer/Dwarven Crossbows can't be used by NPCs

For whatever reason, the animation, action or something, required for an NPC to actually fire a Dwemer Crossbow is missing, or something is flagged on the weapons that prevents their firing by NPCs.

The NPCs will aim, and then relax as if they had just fired, and repeat this until an enemy is within their melee range, but they won't actually USE their crossbow.

They don't seem to have any problem using the default steal crossbows, but for whatever reason, any Dwarven/Dwemer crossbow can't be fired and reloaded.

This goes for the enchanted leveled list crossbows as well, any crossbow that uses that dwarven model seems to be unusable by NPCs.

Well at least I know it's not just me then :)

More specifically, I've observed this behavior repeatedly with the Dark Brotherhood female initiate. Perhaps its something more specific, as the Dawnguard NPCs at the fort can obviously wield their crossbows just fine.

Fixed for UDGP 2.0.

Thanks to amgepo for tracking this one down.

animations - actors\character\Behaviors\0_Master.hkx - ActionRightAttack - AttackRightRoot - NonMountedCombatRight - CrossBowAttack - CrossBowDwarvenAttackStart.

Adding a condition so this only runs on the player now allows NPCs to use dwarven crossbows properly since it will now fall through to the regular one below it.
