Scripts work in SP testing but not in MP testing

Recommended Posts

So i've been quite busy with a Zeus mission and already have multiple pieces of code inside of it. These pieces of code are all taken from submissions either on the forums or armaholic. I have no clue what it all means.
When I test my mission in Singleplayer all the code runs fine and everything does what it's supposed to do. But whenever I try to test it in Multiplayer some of the stuff stops working.
I'll just note the scripts that i'm using here:

Enigma Civilians: Works
Player keeps loadout on respawn: Works
Show/hide certain markers to certain logged players: Semi works. Markers will hide but not re-appear.
INCON Undercover: Does not work. Will only show a hint saying "Initializing Undercover"

 

I've been working on fixing this for days but have not had a single succes.
If anyone knows a solution or is willing to help would be awesome!

This community seems really helpfull with this stuff so I guess it'll turn out great! :D

The only point you could have a quick help is for markers. But without code... The jts_2009's answer is pertinent.

you probably need to modify the script that we cant see

Well That's why I noted down the scripts I used. I'm also obviously not a regular here so I do not know what people want if I ask a question or seek help, wich makes jts's comment quite trolly and unhelpfull.
But that aside. What is it that you would like to see?
People tell me a marker script is easy as pie so I thaught people could help me with that instantly. I can post the line of code if you want?
And INCON_undercover is a known script here on the forums wich is a copy/paste script according to the topic.I didn't even edit much. Only a few pieces of equipment the script is supposed see as civilian clothing. It has quite a lot of code thus would make one hell of a large topic if I post all the code but i'll try my best.



initPlayerLocal.sqf

This is the initPlayerLocal script in wich there is a line for initialising the INCON_undercover script and also the hide/show markers script.

Quote

if (player getVariable ["isSneaky",false]) then {
    [player] execVM "INC_undercover\Scripts\initUCR.sqf";
};


private _markersToHide = "roadie","stuntracer"];
_markersToHide select {
    _x setMarkerAlphaLocal 0;
};

if (player == Roadie) then {
    private _markersToShow = ["roadie"];
    _markersToShow select {
    _x setMarkerAlphaLocal 1;
};

if (player == Stuntracer) then {
    private _markersToShow = ["stuntracer"];
    _markersToShow select {
    _x setMarkerAlphaLocal 1;
};

 

initUCR.sqf

This script I do not really understand. After the init this is probably supposed to run and initialise the script ingame when players try to go undercover.

UCR_setup.sqf

This is the setup scrip of the INCON_undercover script. Here I can edit all the options there are and what additional items I want the script to remember.
This is also the only piece of scripting I edited in the entire script.

It's usually helpful to be as detailed as possible, saying you have problems with 3 scripts made by 3 different authors doesn't really go far, besides people suggesting to contact the original authors.

Also depends on how you test this stuff. Locally hosted MP is something different than a dedicated server, especially when calling script from initServer.sqf or from init.sqf with the all too famous "if (!isServer) exitWith {}" followed by various "player" commands paradoxon.

Yes when I googled testing in SP and MP I read that there was a difference but when the wiki starts explaining it, it just completely loses me, even with the examples they show.
I also already contacted the creator of the Undercover script but he's not been online in a month and is not answering. The marker script was given to me by someone whom is also not answering when I told him the markers didn't show.
I'll try to be more detailled next time if I have a problem.

Additionally to  Grumpy Old Man's comments, may I suggest you read into multiplayer/local/single player differences and the impact it has on scripting. You'll find various good information sources online, I can suggest:

 

  • GoKitty's tuts are more recent, give them a try as well: 

 

Understanding how SQF works, especially the differences between MP & LOCAL/SP will help you understand the issues you are facing with the scripts you mentioned.

Show/hide certain markers to certain logged players: Semi works. Markers will hide but not re-appear.
INCON Undercover: Does not work. Will only show a hint saying "Initializing Undercover"

 

 

So, if I'm right, the only script referring to markers (to hide or not) is the initPlayerLocal one... with if then conditions. That means they are initialized (with their alpha), but nothing is scripted to make them "re-appear". Your question has no sense if you don't tell us what event should make them re-appear. We are not supposed to guess what you want to obtain, when.

 

Perhaps few people could help with INCOM Undercover. Users if skilled, author. For what I can see, I'm not a user, in initPlayerLocal.sqf, you have:

 

if (player getVariable ["isSneaky",false]) then {
    [player] execVM "INC_undercover\Scripts\initUCR.sqf";
};

 

That means you have to add :

this getVariable ["isSneaky",true]; 

in all init field of the playable units in editor. If not, there is no reason to have this condition set to true, then run the initUCR.sqf.

Oh whoops. Sorry I thought I had the reason for reappear written down but that was in the other thread.
 

The markers are supposed to reappear when a player logs in. All players are able to play a certain character and every certain character has few markers specific to that character. However there are more characters than players so only the markers of the characters that are being played are supposed to be seen by everyone.

That little piece of code was all the code I had gotten when I asked if someone knew a good solution for this problem. It indeed hides the markers but if a player logs into the server and selects a character that character's specific markers do not pop up.


As far as the undercover script goes, I had done that to every character I want players be able to play. Even edited it down to every single clothing piece they are allowed to wear. When I test it in SP enviroment is also all works perfectly. The AI responds like it should. I can see my disguise status, I can see my AI squad members change from Independent to civilian when their undercover kicks in. But as soon as I test it in Multiplayer the only thing that works is the initial "Hint" telling me that the script is initialising, nothing happens after that.

This is the init.sqf but it has only code to a ambient civilian script

In all the stuff you gave, there is a code:

waitUntil { sleep 1;  (missionNamespace getVariable ["INC_ucrInitComplete",false]) };

 

but nowhere else to make this variable set to true...

So the question is, where, when do you have a :

missionNameSpace setVariable ["INC_ucrInitComplete",true];

 

Not found so far. And your script seems to be stuck here.

Hmmm the problem does seem to be in that area. I had true changed to false and suddenly the script started working again. I was again able to become undercover along with NPC squadmates. I tested it with some enemies and getting in and out of cover via picking up weapons and wrong clothing.

But it did seem like a temporary solution. I had a bombardment of error all pointing towards a variable called trespassmarker, and upon game restart I was no longer able to go undercover even though I didn't change anything.
Might it be a problem on my side like UPNP? I mostly test on LAN connection but also on via internet there is no change. But it still works in SP

Ok. I found out something. After poking around I got the idea to change up the spawn mechanic. Sometimes I noticed that clones would be floating in the water at the corner of the map. I once set my respawn timer to 0 second and I would not be spawned at the spawnpoint but instead be that guy in the water. So I tried to replicate the Singleplayer style spawning. I completely disabled respawning and instead activated singleplayer death screen but I still tested in MP and it seems to have fixed it. The entire script is working with no errors. But now I have to find out how to still enable respawn but without screwing up the script.

So turns out it was the respawn timer that screwed things up. I have to set the respawn timer to about 25 seconds to give the script time to initialize, otherwise it will not work.
Now I only need to tackle the issue with markers not re-appearing.

Yes when I googled testing in SP and MP I read that there was a difference but when the wiki starts explaining it, it just completely loses me, even with the examples they show.
I also already contacted the creator of the Undercover script but he's not been online in a month and is not answering. The marker script was given to me by someone whom is also not answering when I told him the markers didn't show.
I'll try to be more detailled next time if I have a problem.

i have not read the replies after this post, but a simple way to explain it is like this.

SP, you are the server, any script that runs PERIOD runs on your machine, you know everything.

MP(hosted through arma 3) you are the server, any script that runs PERIOD runs on your machine, you know everything again, so one thing may work differently for you than it does for example your friend who joined the server.

DEDICATED, its the same as if you join a random wasteland server, you are just another client because the server running the mission handles its own data separately from you and deals with critical information that you dont want clients to deal with generally. in this case the server is what you would think of, just a server and your just a client playing on it unlike MP.

Yeah thanks, I was already working through those tutorials and I knew a bit about the differences. But the undercover problem has been fixed, see my last reply, it got broken because of the respawn timer. Now I only have to fix the character specific markers that need to appear and dissapear when a player is logging in and out on a specific character. But this problem is active on both Singleplayer and Multiplayer.

are you trying to get those markers to appear on the map? can you share the script and explain how you want it to work.
