Infinite loading screen - Script Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Im making a script for a milsim unit i play with, and the script i made causes infinite loading screens, so far i havent been able to uncover the issue. So i hope someone here on A3 forum is able to help.

 

Here is the ammobox init:

this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Recruit</t>", "loadouts\Recruit.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Rifleman UCP</t>", "loadouts\RiflemanUCP.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Rifleman</t>", "loadouts\Rifleman.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Anti Tank</t>", "loadouts\AntiTank.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Combat Engineer</t>", "loadouts\CombatEngineer.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Combat Medic</t>", "loadouts\CombatMedic.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Fire Team Leader</t>", "loadouts\FireTeamLeader.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Squad Leader</t>", "loadouts\SquadLeader.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Platoon Leader / 2IC</t>", "loadouts\PlatoonLeader.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>MG M249</t>", "loadouts\MGM249.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>MG M240</t>", "loadouts\MGM240.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Marksman</t>", "loadouts\Marksman.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Flight Medic</t>", "loadouts\FlightMedic.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Heli Pilot</t>", "loadouts\Pilot.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Jet Pilot</t>", "loadouts\JetPilot.sqf"];

The pupose is to make a box will all loadouts preset so a new player just have to mousewheel select class then boom all the required equipment to survive an operation.

 

Here is the script for RiflemanUCP.sqf

clearAllItemsFromBackpack player;
clearBackpackCargo player;
removeAllWeapons player;
removeAllItems player;
removeAllAssignedItems player;
removeUniform player;
removeVest player;
removeBackpack player;
removeHeadgear player;
removeGoggles player;
{player unassignItem _x;player removeItem _x} forEach assignedItems player;

It's works correctly in singleplayer, and if i test it as a multiplayer scenario through the 3D Editor.

 

As soon as the mission is uploaded to a dedicated server it causes the infinite loading screen.

if i run the mission on the dedicated server without these two scripts there is no issue at all.

maybe you made your mission with some mods and you don't have those mods on the dedicated server.

I already checked that. unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case, but thx anyway  :)

Issue got partially fixed, instead of using "this" i named all the assets in my mission.

that seems to have done the job.

Now it looks like 25% of the players get a corrupt mission file.

Addactions have to be added locally for each connecting client, so put

this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Recruit</t>", "loadouts\Recruit.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Rifleman UCP</t>", "loadouts\RiflemanUCP.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Rifleman</t>", "loadouts\Rifleman.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Anti Tank</t>", "loadouts\AntiTank.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Combat Engineer</t>", "loadouts\CombatEngineer.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Combat Medic</t>", "loadouts\CombatMedic.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Fire Team Leader</t>", "loadouts\FireTeamLeader.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Squad Leader</t>", "loadouts\SquadLeader.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Platoon Leader / 2IC</t>", "loadouts\PlatoonLeader.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>MG M249</t>", "loadouts\MGM249.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>MG M240</t>", "loadouts\MGM240.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Marksman</t>", "loadouts\Marksman.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Flight Medic</t>", "loadouts\FlightMedic.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Heli Pilot</t>", "loadouts\Pilot.sqf"]; 
this addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Jet Pilot</t>", "loadouts\JetPilot.sqf"];

in the  initPlayerLocal.sqf  and replace this with the name of your ammo box.

No, everyone runs init fields. Including JIP

 

@OP  I suggest you upload your server .rpt to pastebin and share it here

I know, but he is executed the code from the initbox of the ammobox, not the init.sqf. That could be the issue.

I've been doing quite the amount of troubleshooting. and it looks like that if I order the client mods in the same order as the server/mission you can join.

But as soon as a single mod not loaded in the same order as the server/mission you get the infinite loading screen.

 

a very strange issue, but at least I found a workaround.

I named all the assets used in the mission so the init of the AmmoBox looks like this:

LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Recruit</t>", "loadouts\Recruit.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Rifleman UCP</t>", "loadouts\RiflemanUCP.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Rifleman</t>", "loadouts\Rifleman.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Anti Tank</t>", "loadouts\AntiTank.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Combat Engineer</t>", "loadouts\CombatEngineer.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Combat Medic</t>", "loadouts\CombatMedic.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Fire Team Leader</t>", "loadouts\FireTeamLeader.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Squad Leader</t>", "loadouts\SquadLeader.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Platoon Leader / 2IC</t>", "loadouts\PlatoonLeader.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>MG M249</t>", "loadouts\MGM249.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>MG M240</t>", "loadouts\MGM240.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Marksman</t>", "loadouts\Marksman.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Flight Medic</t>", "loadouts\FlightMedic.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Heli Pilot</t>", "loadouts\Pilot.sqf"]; 
LoadoutBox addAction ["<t color='#FF7722'>Jet Pilot</t>", "loadouts\JetPilot.sqf"];
