    Had a look and the behaviour is the same for me, maybe chalk it up to battle adrenaline and hope BI also notice it...

    What's the mission you are playing in multiplayer? I can't imagine why this happened but fixing it should be possible by editing the mission's revive scripts, unless it's the built in revive system.

    Reinforcement help (Activate or Delete)

    You were almost there I think! Easiest thing to do is to add in another condition to check whether reinforcements have been called, so your triggers would look like this: Condition: !alive tower && !reinforcements On Activation can stay the same, the above means "If the tower is not alive (destroyed) and the reinforcements have not been called (reinforcements = false), then activate the trigger (delete the reinforcements)" To make this work, edit the trigger used to call the reinforcements so it includes the simple statement: [Your code to call the reinforcements]; reinforcements = true; and add in the "init" section of your reinforcements' vehicle: reinforcements = false; This works as follows: At the start of the mission, reinforcements = false If the player then destroys the tower without being detected, !alive tower = true and !reinforcements = true (as the ! is the opposite of the current value), so the reinforcements are deleted If the player is detected, reinforcements gets changed to true, so even if the tower is destroyed and !alive tower = true, !reinforcements will now be false, and the trigger will not delete the reinforcements. Hope that helps!
  5. Here's an odd one for you, I am using skipTime in an external script which is called via a trigger. For some reason the script seems to cause all enemy vehicles to explode?! Even when using "allowDamage false" on the vehicles, the crew still die?! The worst part, is that this is totally random - sometimes it works fine and other times everything dies! Has anyone experienced this before, or know how I can make the crew invincible during the script as well as the vehicles? Thanks in advance Its almost like time travel is dangerous or something...

    New Mission Featuring a Unique AI System - Last Stand Kavala

    Awesome, I will do! I'll also post when we release a new mission, with a link to the new thread - likely to be a few weeks after the upcoming Eden update.

    New Mission Featuring a Unique AI System - Last Stand Kavala

    Dammit Microsoft! According to their page on file sharing with OneDrive, you shouldn't need to sign in for a "Get a link -> View only" link: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Share-files-and-folders-and-change-permissions-9fcc2f7d-de0c-4cec-93b0-a82024800c07 Maybe there is a place you can click to not have to sign in - if I open the link in a browser that doesn't sign me in I can just see the file and nothing else? Sorry for the trouble. Edit: Thanks Richie, much obliged.

    AI Discussion (dev branch)

    I just wanted to stop by and say thanks for adding the Autocombat AI control feature, I may redesign an entire mission if it works as I expect; currently, the mission linked below uses AI with numerous modified behaviours in an attempt to produce similar responses to the behaviour this feature should produce. So thanks BIS, much appreciated! If anyone would like to check out and compare my now (possibly) outdated AI modification, here it is: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=603109334

    Extreme shadow bug in Arma 3

    Thanks for the replies, I am using a NVIDIA GTX 850, I'll try rolling back the drivers although I bet this will create issues with other games, might be a lose lose until updates just end up fixing this, if its driver related :P

    Extreme shadow bug in Arma 3

    http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=603876301 Hey all, Please see the above link/photo Put simply, my shadows are being drawn in an absolutely random manner, with lots of rapid spiking. I really can't think of anything more than updating my drivers and modifying my video settings, so has anyone got any other ideas? Note this is a vanilla install, no mods. Thank you far any and all suggestions, Ed

    Respawn type change?

    Hi yuval, As far as I am aware changing respawn type in game is impossible, but I'm sure there is a way around this, let me know if the following gets you anywhere. For some reason I am getting a "502 bad gateway" error trying to access the wiki right now, but its possible using an "onplayerkilled.sqf" script will allow you to accomplish this, for now though... Try using the "old" respawn system (markers named respawn_west, respawn_west_2 etc.) So you probably have this all set up already but the description.ext needs to contain: respawn = "BASE"; Place a marker named R1 on the base, where you want the respawn point to be once the base is captured. Then place a trigger in your mission that is activated when the Base is captured, with an OnActivation field of: createMarker [""respawn_west"", (getMarkerPos ""R1"")]; This will create a respawn point on R1, if this is the only respawn point units will always spawn on it from then on. Hope it helps, Ed
