    I know how they work, they just work only like 2 out of 10 times. I hook the rope up, it has the locks engaged, but spinning it does nothing to load catapults, open gates, etc. It's no fault of mine, as they don't even work on default blueprints.

    Also adding to the problem, I can't press F to place stones in weapons. I know how to do it, it just doesn't work.

    The handle orientation dictates the rope drum spin, have you tried holding 'shift'+ the turn button to reverse the spin? Sometimes ropes need to be reset (detach, reattach), but this is usually after the machinery has had some physical changes made to it. As for loading the catapult spoon, make sure you are close and there are no objects which could be obstructing; ie negative space corner of a diagonal timber hit box; where there is no wood. Hope it helps.
