Summary0003153: Wing wave threshold error checking incorrect
DescriptionWhen editing a wing in FRED(tested with FRED2_Open 3.7.2 RC5), the wing editor has a settable Wave Threshold that makes sense, that is it's always 1 less than the size of the wave. However, when the editor is closed it can object to the setting and reset. This happens for wave sizes of 4 or higher. With experimentation I identified what values are settable and what values the error checking will allow for each wave size.

Wave size : Settable : Allowed
1 : 0 : 0
2 : 1 : 1
3 : 2 : 2
4 : 3 : 2
5 : 4 : 1
6 : 5 : 0
Steps To Reproduce1) Make a wing of size >= 4 in fred
2) open the wing editor
3) set the wave threshold as high as possible
4) close the wave editor.

Behavior is correct: the game allows only 6 ships per wing at any given time. With wing size 4, that means there can be only 2 ships already in the field before the 4 new ones jump in, as this then will total 6 active ships in the wing.

Clarified the warning message in PR569
