ACE3 - A collaborative merger between AGM, CSE, and ACE

Recommended Posts

Hi.

First, I want to ask here if this is a bug. Than I can write a bug report on Git.

Is it possible to interact with explosives under water?

I placed a Satchel Charge via self-ineract menu, but couldn't interact with the explosive to put a fuse on it.

Greetings

After you set the explosive with "Self" Interact, you then need to open your "other" interaction as i call it, in order to place a trigger on it. Think of it like this. Once you set that explosive down, you need to interact with it like anything else that is not your "self". Also make sure you have an M57 trigger or something on you, otherwise you will only be able to set a timer on the explosive. Hope that helps.

Ah. I have to be more precise...

1) go under water

2) place satchel via self-interact

3) try to ace-interact with satchel (not self-interect, I mean other-interact)

You can't even find an interaction point on the satchel under water. Is this right? Can someone confirm this?

Hey ACE3 guys! How hard would it be to add an attatchable compass to the ruck straps or upper carrier area, so instead of fumbling around for the 'k' button in the middle of a gunfight one could simply free-look downwards and read their compass? just a bright idea curious to hear your thoughts on. Thank You.

KNOWN ISSUES

We have noticed that when using ACE with 3rd-Party mods that do not fully support CBA Extended Eventhandlers (XEH) that some units do not work with Interaction fully. You may see the cursor but no menus.

WORKAROUND: The latest CBA RC7 Hotfix 2, v1.1.23 has an optional PBO that you can activate to help resolve these situations.

1. Move the cba_enable_auto_xeh.pbo and its signature file from the CBA optional folder to the CBA Addons folder

2. Restart Arma.

If you have identified the 3rd-Party mod that causes ACE Interaction to break, contact the developer and ask them to support the CBA XEH. They can contact CBA Devs for help.

Developers can update their mods by one of the following methods to work with ACE.

Reference: Two guides to help developers get started with the CBA extended event handler system

Is the "not being able to walk even when it says you aren't injured" in the advanced system a feature or a bug? If it's a feature how do I treat it?

Oh boy oh boy oh boy.

We held a 3h test with 3.0.1 a week ago, we now know what we need to test so we'll try to repeat it during the weekend and then report our results.

Thanks, guys!

Thanks for your hard work!

There is a new setting to heal hitpoints after bandaging. I believe it's called remove bloodstains? Enable it and it is how works like before the 3.1.1 update. You can find it in the advanced medical settings module.

Hey quick question...please for give if this has already been answered. Did a search but couldn't find anything in results.

Is ACE AI/Medical designed to cause other AI units in your squad to respond to other units or yourself being injured? Under AGM this was a fairly common occurrence that when shot and unconscious one of the other AI would be "johnny on the spot" and use my medical kit to provide assistance. It was a pretty immersive feature...that the AI would immediately try to assist their buddy.

Now I get hit knock out and it seems to be sh!t outta luck pal, your on your own ;-)

Has there been a design change on the scope of medical or is it something not implemented yet?

I even tried it with just Vanilla +CBA/ACE and found the same problem. They wouldn't respond to any kind of injury on a fellow squad ai or myself...even when ordered to do so. Seemed weird.

I had an old Drongo's Command Enhancement addon that allows for quick forced med patch up either on a unit by unit or entire squad basis...The important thing is that the AI give feedback.

I think I may have figured out why the AI doesn't respond to medical problems with other teammates. It appears the AI doesn't recognize any of the ACE3 medical items. I could order a Combat Medic with full ACE3 medical kit to heal either myself or another injured unit...the response was always "I don't have a FAK or Medkit." I guess that would derail the process.

It's weird because AGM had this fully squared away. They would heal each other with no problem using the AGM med items either with the vanilla commands or Drongo's Command Enhance, but most of the time it was on their own. They would only give the "I dont have" feedback when they were bone dry on equipment.

Ahhhhh good to know -thats why the AI medics wont help. #1 reason I disable the whole medical pbo until some AI support is added.

Also +1 on Drongos Command Enhancement, great under recognized tool that everyone should try.
