ACE for OA 1.11

Recommended Posts

Hi, are there some known issues with the SLAM mines in the current release?

Was using them today and they seemed completely incapable of any sort of armour penetration. Firstly a BTR70 drove over one aiming upwards and continued on without suffering any apparent damage to the vehicle or the occupants, despite the mine going off right under the center of the vehicle.

I then experimented myself with me driving a BMP2 past roadside planted SLAMS, and didn't suffer any damage to the vehicle or myself after triggering 2 that hit me in the side, and 1 directly in the front.

It did knock out the engine on an SUV I drove headon into one, but again no damage to myself.

Are they supposed to be that weak or is there something wrong with them?

I've been looking for a way to properly make units invulnerable in ACE when not using ACE wounds.

Currently, adding "HandleDamage" event handlers doesn't work, so ACE has a variable you can set which will make the unit invulnerable, however it only works with ACE wounds enabled. See: http://dev-heaven.net/issues/22738

Anyone knows of a way to make units invulnerable in ACE with ACE wounds disabled?

I would use allowDamage but that command seems to not work correctly unless it's run on all machines, and since I need to activate/deactivate invulnerability often for many units at different times it's a really dirty solution.

Check the documentation on the wounding system.

Specifically

[b]ace_w_allow_dam[/b]
ACE-aware equivalent of allowDamage. Controls whether a unit can take damage or not. 
Boolean. Default true - unit can be damaged.
false - unit cannot be damaged by normal means.

Like I said, it seems to only work with ACE wounds enabled. In my mission wounds is disabled and this variable seems to do nothing, while the EH is still not working either.

Test if the 'normal' method works without ACE loaded. If it does, make a ticket on the ACE tracker, if it doesn't, create a ticket on the CIT.

E: Can't you just run the allowDamage script using CBA_fnc_globalExecute?

I already made a ticket (though it was about the EH not working): http://dev-heaven.net/issues/22738

EH works without ACE. With ACE I understand it cannot work but the alternative ACE provides doesn't work either unless ACE wounds is loaded.

Fix up, and Xeno added more workarounds too; http://dev-heaven.net/issues/22738#change-102074

Make sure you're syncing with the official network and not with a custom repository which might be hosting older versions.

Also make sure you have actually synced with the SU portal. If you disabled autosync in the Options, you might want to re-enable it :)

Latest software version is v2.6pre(4);

I downloaded ACE through SU and I notice that in the userconfig folder there are 3 files:

ace_clientside_config.hpp

ace_serverconfig.hpp

settings.ace

The settings.ace is an archive file but Winrar is telling me that this archive is either an unknown format or is damage. Well, Winrar does read .ace format so it's probably damage or something else.

What kind of issue?
Unable to complete sync operations with the SU portal, so hence stuck at ACE 484 :)

Hey guys, just wanted to ask whether the lost key function is enabled with ACE mod? If so how do I disable it? via config?

That's no archive but a serialized settings file, used by the game and written by clippi :)

Oh, I see. Thanks. I got confused because usually archive files that needs to be "unpacked" are represented by the Winrar icon(three little books stacked together)

Anyways, I'm totally new to ACE and ACEX and I must say they are amazing. I'm testing each feature one by one today so I yet to discover most of the features. I alter the userconfig to enable gas mask, earplugs, etc. Btw, I noticed in the game some text telling me that I can check my Diary menu or something like that. Where is the Diary?
