# Warfare BE

## Recommended Posts

Hi,

first of all a big thx for this great mod, and sec, sry for my bad english.

I play this since a few Weeks and there are a few Problems which destroy the Game. Of Course Hackers but thats not ur Problem, Teamkiller, it would be nice if u can integrated a Anti Teamkill Option (enable/disable function) to get Server clean, a Auto Team Balance Function which balanced Teams before the Game starts, and the commander vote. The Commander vote is most Time useless because the Players dont want vote or they dont know and cant even learn that because they dont know any word of english maybe, whatever it is. So my Idea is, if the Team want to Vote commander it have to reactivate his own voice and this by every vote, until they got a commander. As example: u have 25 Players on Team A, and only 5 of them care about who is commander, so first they have to click on a button to reactivate their voice for vote, and now the game only counts the 5 voice for commander vote, so u need only 3 vocie to get a new commander.

I hope my explaining is good enough, i mean u did just great with that mod, but these Options would be very nice to make this Game more beautiful as it is. Thank you!

Regards

EDIT: Why is it possible for BLUEFOR to buy Repairtrucks with LF1 and OPFOR only by LF2. If they do Basehunting, has BLUEFORE a better Option, this should be balanced. Both LF1 or LF2 to get Repair Truck (CO Version)

Hey,

Anti Teamkill is planned :), i was thinking of a prison system where a song (anoying one ofc) would play in loop.

Regarding commander vote, I think i'll make a slot which will always be the default commander (if the parameter is enabled). Vote will remain in case of mutinery :)

~80 Vehicles availible in the Light factory, ~50 in the Aircraft Factory and ~40 in the Heavy Vehicles Factory on Blufor side alone. I am SLOWLY getting there :D

Im having a bit of a problem with bounty/salvaging/triggering towns with some vehicles though. Japanese vehicles dont want to trigger towns at all, getting bounty from the added vehicles seems to be random at best and most do not work with salvaging. Do i need to add them to different config files than core_x and units_x to make everything work, or is that a config problem within the mods?

I think that the problem is the config inheritance. Some mods do not inherit from the BIS default config tree (http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA_2:_CfgVehicles) So you have to add them in the detection scripts (grep for nearEntities).

This the the default detection array. So if a mod do not inherit from "Car" (Land >> LandVehicle >> Car) but inherits from a custom class (Land >> LandVehicle >> PimpCar) then you have to add it to the scope

_detected = (_location nearEntities [["Man","Car","Motorcycle","Tank","Air","Ship"]...
_detected = (_location nearEntities [["Man","Car","PimpCar","Motorcycle","Tank","Air","Ship"]...


Or you can do it the lazy way and use AllVehicles (hopefully the mod inherit from it!):

_detected = (_location nearEntities [["Man","Car","Motorcycle","Tank","Air","Ship"],   ...
_detected = (_location nearEntities ["AllVehicles",   ...


I will change those detection script to AllVehicles soon.

Hi Benny I'm back with more AI issues!

By the way sorry if me constantly reporting AI issues is getting annoying. I play a lot of coop with my friends (and sp sometimes also) so I really notice the AI. Anyway onto the bugs; these bugs are mostly regarding general weirdness of the AI that comes up after 1-2 hours of play:

Game info: (v0.73, INFANTRY ONLY)

1. Most importantly, getting stuck: This is different from the "all AI freezes after a while" issue that I reported before. This issue can even happen on a small 6v6 game on zargabad. Basically, after about 2 hours in AI squads will get stuck in place, mostly at base. Not all at once though. 2 hours in maybe one squad gets stuck, then another 30 min another two get stuck. They basically just stand in one spot and don't move, and even when you kill them to get them moving again, most of the time they will get stuck again shortly. I'm guessing it's due to an accumulation of errors that after 2 hours or so prevents the AI squads from functioning properly?

2. Heading in some random direction away from battle: Sometimes happens to 1 or 2 squad after 2 hours of play. They just suddenly decides to move towards the edge of the map (where they gets stuck).

3. AI ALWAYS in combat mode: yeah, even if the AI squad just respawned at base, and base is at least 2k away from any action, the still move in combat mode, which means they take forever to reach their objective. Again this only happens after about 2 hours into the game.

4. General glitchiness: Not sure if it's due to ArmA or warfare BE; but at around about two hours in the AI gets glitchy in general. You can no longer rely on them to capture towns, they take AGES to complete objectives, become unresponsive (if I am playing as commander) and in some cases jump on ATVs and start riding around aimlessly in circles until they are killed!

Where did you guys find 073-3 version? What are the biggest differences compared to 073-2?

Is AI commander suppose to work, or am I doing something wrong? When I choose AI as commander, they build some buildings, then do nothing.

##### Share on other sites

The AI commander in version 73 is bugged. You can try version 71 which runs fine.

Nope, just tried this.

When I start, every AI unit is rushing into a truck, everyone then drives at the same location. After a few minutes the AI commander builds a few building. After that the AI commander just keeps spawning men that rushes in the same direction. No cars, nothing.

The AI commander is definately bugged right now but ive never heard of that particular bug before. For me the ai commander builds everything but stops buying upgrades after 2barracks,2gear,2light and 1 supply. Must have something to do with the beta patches, although it doesnt work for me on non-beta anymore either.

We will all have to wait for Benny to rewrite the AI.

You should share that custom mission later on.

I will definately release it when im done but im far from being finished. I havent even started working on OPFOR yet... At least my rewrite of all BLUFOR AI Squads is now pretty much finished with some randomness to ensure they buy different stuff each time you play the mission, including mod content.

_detected = (_location nearEntities [["Man","Car","Motorcycle","Tank","Air","Ship"]...
_detected = (_location nearEntities [["Man","Car","PimpCar","Motorcycle","Tank","Air","Ship"]...


Or you can do it the lazy way and use AllVehicles (hopefully the mod inherit from it!):

_detected = (_location nearEntities [["Man","Car","Motorcycle","Tank","Air","Ship"],   ...
_detected = (_location nearEntities ["AllVehicles",   ...


I will change those detection script to AllVehicles soon.

Didnt help with the japanese vehicles unfortunately. Probably has something to do with the mod itself, ill investigate it further when ive got more time, thanks anyways.

Oooo! Nice! I like it.

Is there any way I can run this in SP just to test a few units?

##### Share on other sites

Well it is not an SP Mission, so you need to host it to make it work, but every slot plus commander can also be filled/done by AI. So yes, it can be played in SP, i do it all the time. The AI is a little bugged though and is being rewritten for the next version, so keep that in mind if the AI gets stuck on the map, or the AI commander stops building stuff.

Id suggest you use a dedicated server+client on your PC, as hosting it using just the client has way worse performance. If you just want to test some units set the money and supply parameters of the side you wanna play to the maximum value and set Upgrades to all.

##### Share on other sites

If anyone wants to test out the 071 version.

Ive fired up a server for people to try out.

Cherno / Taki / Zarg maps have been loaded on to it.

Thanks mate. I've used both the arma2oaserver.exe (with mod parameters) and Tophe's excellent TA2DST tool with success. The only thing is when I tried loading the CBA, BWMODS and RKSL addons I always get the message KPFS_BW requires addon CAWheeled2_VWGolf. Even though when I run the same mods in single player I don't get the same message. I've made sure the CBA mods go first but the problem remains. I'm not sure whether the server doesn't run in Combined Ops for some reason? Seeing as I'm using a OA dedicated server. I put every mod folder in my OA directory.

Weird. WFBE doesnt require any mods at all, so maybe youre better off deactivating the ones bugging out for you. On the other hand i have something around 60 mods activated on both my dedicated (beta version, started using TA2DST) and my client (beta version, started using Arma II launcher) and it works perfectly. What do you use to launch your Arma 2 Client? I did encounter weird problems with mods not being loaded in the past before i started using Arma II launcher. Apart from that id try redownloading and reinstalling the BWMODS as CAWheeled2_VWGolf is clearly a part of one of those.

I actually use SpiritedMachine's ArmA II Launcher for solo and online play. The BWMods work absolutely fine when I run them from it. It's only when I try to run them on the dedicated server that I experience problems. Do I need to include an additional path to the dedicated server exe/TA2DST for Combine Ops or something? Saying that I can't find CAWheeled2_VWGolf in ArmA 2 nor OA. Thing is I've installed the BWMod and BW Compilation addons from the threads here and then again from Six Updater (after it said my version didn't match theirs). The problem still remains.

Update - I've found this:

Well, im kinda lost then. All i can tell you is that you dont need an additional link to a CO server exe. All i do is select the arma2oaserver.exe from \Expansion\beta\ (While it is not required to run the beta version i do get better performance from it so thats what i use). Then i select the mods in the Mods tab and the mission in the Missions tab, switch reporting ip over to "private server" and save the profile.

Did you try placing the BWMod Golf in the editor? I think the client is a lot more accepting when it comes to mods with missing bits than a server checking the connecting client's mods... im not sure though.

You might want to check out the support section of the forum for this problem, my knowledge of hosting/mod problems is pretty limited, i bet people there can help you better than i can. All i can tell you is that it is definately not a WFBE problem.

##### Share on other sites

Thanks, yeah it has to be something to do with the mods somewhere. I'll post in the troubleshooting thread.

On a separate note I tried out Warefare BE on my machine last night and it ran like a charm. No slowdown until I got in the air but that's expected as it's Chernarus. The team A.I kicked arse and the enemy A.I commander built an impressive base. It even put walls around the buildings heh. Really enjoyed it so fair play Benny. :)

I'm guessing it's due to an accumulation of errors that after 2 hours or so prevents the AI squads from functioning properly?

2. Heading in some random direction away from battle: Sometimes happens to 1 or 2 squad after 2 hours of play. They just suddenly decides to move towards the edge of the map (where they gets stuck).

You can no longer rely on them to capture towns, they take AGES to complete objectives, become unresponsive (if I am playing as commander) and in some cases jump on ATVs and start riding around aimlessly in circles until they are killed!

UPDATE: ok I have playing/testing 0.71 a lot recently - and I have to say - most of the problems I mentioned in my last post do not apply. After a couple of 3 hour sessions, the AI did not slow down, or freeze, or go retarded. So it seems that most of these problems are only associated with 0.73 (except for the saving/loading problem). In general the AI in 0.71 seems a lot more reliable than the one in 0.73; they defend towns better, they capture objectives much more swiftly, etc. Does anyone know what change between 0.71 and 0.73 is causing these problems?

p.s. Unfortunately my attempts at locating the issue on my own have been futile. Benny's scripts are just way too complicated for my tiny little brain to comprehend :(

Kavoriken - if I want to try mods with Warfare BE, say ones that belong to the independent faction, would I need to open the mission up in the editor and attach them to the module or something? Or do they need to be written into the mission?

Its not so easy. You need to rewrite the hole units table, for each unit that is in the mod and each side.

Yes, as liukang168 said, its not that easy. That is why it has already taken me a couple of months to add just a handful of mods to WFBE. If you want to know more about the process of adding things to the mission, check out Bennys tutorial here: https://dev-heaven.net/projects/warfare-be/wiki/Editing

It does not require that much knowledge about modding or editing, but it is a lot of work. Finding out all the classnames of the units, putting them into the mission, calculating values to make sure there is SOME sort of balance and adding them to the squads to make sure the AI buys them... thats the basic process.

Ive said it before: A WFBE Editor with a classname database of all the mods out there would be so sweet. Just click whatever vehicle you want in your mission, add some values and let the editor compile the SQF for you. But unfortunately something like that does not exist... and i highly doubt that there is enough interest to justify the amount of work youd have with a project like that.

Maybe if BIS ever adds auto-mod-download on server connect for Arma 3, adding mod content to WFBE will actually make sense for more people than just SP players...

Yeah, i ported bewf to iron front. Lots of copy pasting. Units, gear, groups, buildings...to much

Would be nice to remove reloading in bunkers feature completely. This feature destroys the gameplay. One human player in town can stay against town siege for the long time. Constantly reloading at the bunker he can destroy incoming enemy vehicles and helicopters. He can buy AI infantry in town main camp and reload them in town bunkers forever until he has money. I would like to see better use of ammo boxes and ammo trucks instead or limit bunker reload capacity.

hmm...i just can't understand how to setup upgrades...

if i enable them,they will be ALL MAXED OUT from the start,if i disable them THEY CAN'T BE UPGRADED AT ALL wtf ?

start a new MP with max \$ and S and upgrades was available,but in the first game not. :\

What Version are you talking about here Markuz? Ive never seen upgrades not working... Im not sure what your knowledge is like about WFBE. You know that you need a command center to perform upgrades, yes?

The Parameter name is indeed a little misleading though, it should be called something like "Upgrades maxed out for faction:". "Disabled" means everyone has to research everything, "All" means everyone has all upgrades availible from the beginning. Selecting a faction will make all upgrades availible to that faction ONLY and everyone else will have to research them.
