What you could do is run the code generator only server-side, then when the players find the laptop send the code over as a public variable. Then when a player inputs the code, is returned back in a bis_fnc_mp call to the server. If correct, disable the bomb and whatnot, if incorrect, KABOOM!

In the dialog file (common.hpp) you are using the base class names instead of your own. This causes conflict with other scripts doing the same thing. Please update :)

Edit: But I realise this might be a consequens on how dialogs are created in the game?

If using in MP each player can find a different code as a code is randomly placed for each player. The player that is defusing the bomb can not use a code another person has located he must use the one set up for them. It works great, but make sure someone else gets their own code in case you die. They wont be able to use yours as the bomb will explode.

Sorry to revamp an old post...but how do I remove the addAction from the bomb once defused?

 

I put the addAction code on a object(device)..defused..task done..but I want the mission to continue, and I have removed the "endmission" part...but the object still show the "defuse the bomb2 prompt.

Any help to this old fart?

If you want to remove the object's action menu (pump), I did so.

 

Name of the object (where to enter a password)

 

Casebomb

 

Within the INIT space of the object.

 

Bomb = Casebomb addAction [("<t color='#06FF94'>" + ("Defuse the Bomb") + "</t>"),"DEFUSE\defuseAction.sqf","",1,true,true,"","(_target distance _this) < 3"];

 

On the trigger(on Act) that removes the menu 

 

Casebomb removeAction Bomb

Hello, I open an old post.
@cobra4v320, is it possible to no longer have the code, to cut the threads in a specific order?
I know it's been a long time, but maybe since you changed / modified your basic script (still for the MP of course).
thanks, and great script I like it.

*Out of the depths of the forum underworld, I summon thee!*

No but somewhat seriously, I am aware that the designer hasn't logged in since 2018.
I want to state the this script still works as advertised, in multiplayer and dedicated servers. 

But I am about to modify the script to make it slightly more interesting, and was wondering if others could help me, seeing as I have next to zero experience in scripting. 

My aim: I would like the bomb to require both the correct code, and the correct wire, in order to disarm. 

As it stands now, the bomb disarms if you get either correct. I have been digging around in the script files, and I am pretty sure this can be easily fixed by inserting an extra global variable, with a check.

The only two files that change the DEFUSE variable set up by init.sqf are fn_codeCompare:

//Parameters
private ["_code", "_inputCode"];
_code      = [_this, 0, [], [[]]] call BIS_fnc_param;
_inputCode = [_this, 1, [], [[]]] call BIS_fnc_param;

//compare codes
private "_compare";
_compare = [_code, _inputCode] call BIS_fnc_areEqual;

if (_compare) then {
	cutText ["BOMB DEFUSED", "PLAIN DOWN"];
	DEFUSED = true;
	playSound "button_close";
} else {
	cutText ["BOMB ARMED", "PLAIN DOWN"];
	ARMED = true;
	playSound "button_wrong";
};

CODEINPUT = [];

//Return Value
_code

-and fn_wireCompare:

//Parameters
private ["_wire","_cutWire", "_compare"];
_wire    = [_this,0,"",[""]] call BIS_fnc_param;
_cutWire = [_this,1,"",[""]] call BIS_fnc_param;

//compare wires
_compare = [_wire, _cutWire] call BIS_fnc_areEqual;

if (_compare) then {
	cutText ["BOMB DEFUSED", "PLAIN DOWN"];
	DEFUSED = true;
	playSound "button_close";
} else {
	cutText ["BOMB ARMED", "PLAIN DOWN"];
	ARMED = true;
	playSound "button_wrong";
};

//Return Value
_wire

It's pretty straightforward: they make a comparison and set either the DEFUSED or ARMED variable to true.

Obviously I could change their variables to DEFUSED_code and DEFUSED_wire, but where would I make the AND check to set DEFUSE = true? 
An Eden Editor trigger? An IF statement in initserver.sqf? Remember that this has to work in dedicated multiplayer, and I don't have spare players to test this. 

Appreciate you taking the time to read this.

With this principle in mind, look at fn_bombtimer.sqf:

while {_time > 0 && !DEFUSED} do {

And init.sqf:

DEFUSED = false;
ARMED = false;
<snip>
waitUntil {DEFUSED};

Might still not be enough though...

Hey bub,

Thanks for the hints! With a few alterations, I got the mission to work, and have successfully tested it in multiplayer (dedicated). The bomb now only disarms when both the code and wire are correctly clicked. 

I have had to make minor changes to the init and the three functions. They're pretty short scripts. Should I just paste all the code here @RCA3 ? What's this forum's policy on sharing tweaks of other people's work?

The same disclaimer as the previous author. Feel free to tweak the scripts to your needs, or make a better version. Just share with our community.

Glad you got it working (especially with just a few hints 😉).

Cheers.

 

edit: @Melody_Mike maybe just post the affected files in spoilers with a note of its effects (since it's still a bit of files). (Or a zip with the full script 🤩).

Okay, here goes.

The altered bits are notated with MeM (any way I can set this in bold or colored type?). 

init.sqf:
 

CODEINPUT = [];

DEFUSED_WIRE = false;

DEFUSED = false;
ARMED = false;


codeHolder = [lAPTOP1, LAPTOP2, LAPTOP3, LAPTOP4] call BIS_fnc_selectRandom;

//Return Value
_wire

Replace the contents of the script files with the above, and you are set. 
This was a fun first exercise in Arma scripting.

Enjoy!
