flak and SAM hell in the Gulf of Aqaba - my Mig29 just took out a load of enemy aircraft over the wide expanse of desert, then got engaged by AAA and SAMs on its way home.

Some pics - British forces trying to cross a bridge into the Presidential Palace district of Al Aqabah, Jordan, last night (must be his beach house)

scout squadron of CVRT's reached the river bank, and started assessing crossing points

IS fighters guarding the riverbank

so we started leathering them, and reporting targets

and brought up a Warthog

artillery support smacked up the zone a little bit

that, and our constant tracer (i used 3000 rounds of coax and 300+ rounds of 30mm) blasted the riverbank to hell

blew the turret off an old T34, note fighters riding in on T54 to the right

hey no problem - we love the map you made!

I would like to make a patch config for your IS units (e.g. EB_Isis.pbo which patches MIS_Terrorists.pbo), and include both patch and your original pbo in the Rangemaster mod pack v2.6:

a) to add more weapon variations (molotovs, IED's, grenades RKG3, RGD5, RG33, Type 67, disposable RPG18, SVD ironsight, DP28, RPG7 variants, etc) to your units

b) to add them as crew to a range of vehicles, with your IS badge added to their doors as decals (BTR40 (7 types), BTR60, Landrovers, new pickups, statics (zpu4, zu23, S60 AAA etc)

e.g. see examples of potential IS vehicles we have in the pack here

would this be ok?

HeyHo Eggbeast,

I now had time to look at your mission.

First, I realized that the mission folder was packed into a second mission folder * .takistan bore the End Name. Only by manually exchanging the names a user can start the mission.

Furthermore, almost all PBO files in BAFX & Rangemaster-Mod have no bisgn files and no server key files. Some addons are not binarized. This is not good. When you start the mission were equal errors because missing textures at BRDM2imp. But worst of all the performence of the mission. After 4 minutes my RPT had grown about 6 MB and it continued to grow rapidly. This has by no means alone reason of Arma2 Patch 1.63. That explained the lag because extremely many script errors. The mission was not playable for me. There is also in the RPT an entire list on "Updating Base Classes". This is also very worrying. The RPT-entries "config class missing" on the other hand are not serious, but preventable.

Sorry That I can not write anything better.

And sorry for my bad english.

Hi mate

I am not sure which file you were using.

This mission is a pbo with the correct gulf of aqaba suffix.

http://server.elite-warriors.co.uk/eggbeast/missions/CO_22_EvolutionV2UK.mis_gulfofaqaba.pbo

the addons are binarized. but i never bother with keys and signs.

the brdm2imp error i am aware of and trying to hunt it down. it's a minor thing, as you say.

the base class updates are normal as rangemaster makes REPLACEMENTS of many base classes as it's a complete conversion for arma 2.

when you run our mod (rangemaster) or my mission (evolution) or the other mod i was part of (unsung) you must always play with the parameter -nologs and this will prevent the RPT spam caused by the patch 1.63 repeatedly reporting undefined variables. these occur in my mission, in all mods, and even in BIS' own code.

the scripts do not have errors as such, they just don't all have

PRIVATE ["_myvar1","_myvar2"];

at the top of each script. it's no big deal, and you will not experience lag if you use -nologs

cheers

EB
