Respawn Menu Loadouts

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, i'm working on a mission. 

But i want to have multiple types of roles and types of loadouts that you can choose within the roles.

I am using the standard Arma 3 Respawn Menu. 

Anyone knows how to do this?

 

Thanks!

Everything u need is here. Define roles & respawn inventories in description.ext and you're done. Add to units/sides/groups with this. It's pretty simple.

edit: wrong link xd

Can't really get it to work. 

I have multiple respawns and i want players to be able to select them not to random respawn on them.

The info on how to do this is on the wiki page linked by @Floof.

If you can't get it to work post a snippet of what doesn't work.

You built that mission yet have no idea what to do?

 

Well he's execVMing empty .sqf files from the init.sqf and doing stuff like "for '_i' from 0 to 1 step 0 do", so there's that.

Most likely in way over his head, heh.

 

@Violt

Does your mission absolutely need this kind of functionality?

If you're new to arma scripting it's better to take small, simple steps to reach your goal.

Nothing wrong with loadout selection during mission runtime.

The reason why i need the respawn menu with the loadout is for the player to select their rank. And if you are an let say an lt you are able to call in attilery strikes. You won’t as a recruit. The code to select a rank depending on the loadout role you select is already made and should work. If this doesn’t work i need to find another wat for the player to be able to select their rank.

So it doesn't work but you haven't implemented it yet?

And this selection absolutely has to happen during respawn?

Again if I understood this right, you made the code and it should work but you only state what to you're doing if it doesn't work.

How about stating what exactly doesn't work?

Does it work from debug console?

Does it work in SP but not in MP/dedicated?

 

The mission you linked to has no single file pointing to something like a custom reload script, initPlayerLocal.sqf and onPlayerRespawn.sqf are both empty.

If you need someone to make the script for you you'll better post in a more appropriate forum.

 

Cheers

With not implemented yet i mean not working yet. So that feature is not in the mission yet. 

I just need to know step by step what i need to do. As the link you sended me isn't giving me enough help.

Well the mission you posted might as well be a default mission template with most of the files being empty.

@Floof already posted the wiki containing all needed info on how to implement a respawn system with multiple selectable positions.

If this is over your head you can ask someone to script it for you, hence my link to the find or offer editing forum.

 

Maybe I misunderstood but what exactly was the purpose of uploading the mission, if the stuff you need help with isn't even in the mission?

 

Cheers

Others HAVE been offering help. What they will NOT do is make your mission for you. Please take the time to read through the Wiki and resources like Gunter's  .

Additionally, please take advantage of the 17 or so years of combined knowledge here on the forums. Read the posts, frequently refer to the wiki and suitable for most questions, use your favourite search engine. All of this is preferable to making multiple posts/threads. 

Thanks

Found out for this to work. 

It took me about 1 hour searching on google and it finally worked. 

I'm pretty new to scripting so i do not understand everything.

For anyone who stumbles accross this thread and wonders, jesus... Will anyone just throw up an easy simple answer and move on. Here it is:

 

in your description.ext copy and paste the section under "CfgRespawnInventory"

 

via this page: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Description.ext

 

ALSO

 

copy and paste this into your init.sqf

 

[west, "Blufor1"] call BIS_fnc_addRespawnInventory;

 

found here: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/BIS_fnc_addRespawnInventory

 

*Notice that the [west, "Blufor1"] call BIS_fnc_addRespawnInventory;

 

class CfgRespawnInventory {

 

                class Blufor1 {

 

in the description.ext

 

... you are defining the class Bulfor1 in the inti.sqf and calling it via the description.ext

 

-Happing coding everyone
