I seem to have the same issue as Automatic Weights Different on one side than the other which doesn't seem to have a solution.

I've tried removing and reapplying the automatic weights on both sides and consistently the Right (mirrored) side doesn't add the weights properly while the Left (original) side does.

here's a gif showing the hind legs of the model on both sides hind legs gif

Is there a solution to this bug yet? (assuming that it is a bug of some sort) I'm using 2.79, I think it has something to do with the mirroring process or the bone roll but I really can't say for sure.

If i have to manually assign weights to the meshes is there any way to make the them act the same on both sides?

If your mesh is strictly symmetrical, there's one easy solution to this. Just delete one half, apply the weight-painting, then add the mirror modifier (and apply it, if needed). Now both halves are identical, weight painting included.
