  1. I've been now for a few months having an issue with my x-56 joystick (no throttle ie. dual setup). All my inputs are not being, in effect, pushed fully for a input/control direction. Here is the kicker... in the controller setup screen while 'show'ing the input values all controls are showing a input of 0 thru 100 so the issue isnt on the controller or how Arma 3 is sourcing the input values. Likely at this point one might be asking. Okay well whats the problem then? Here is the issue. in the game itself even though the controller and the game sees full movement and input its not applying them to the vehicle.. How do I know this? Simple example take off in a Neophron full flaps and throttle take off via controller is 210+ and far much longer runway distance then doing the exact same takeoff but using the keyboard or mouse to pull back on the stick. There other examples but basically its very obvious that even though the game in the setup config screen is seeing proper inputs they are not being applied fully either. Has anyone else experienced this?
  2. Can either you Gunther or Anzacsas drop a mission whole, Nothing special basic no mods vanilla mission with a intentionally broken description.ext for debugging? Yas sparked some interest. See https://discordapp.com/channels/105462288051380224/115333379133669382/694270058926440630 (ARMA discord #editor_arma3 channel)
  3. All good now thanks I figured out why... and I'll make a public apology for being so hot under the collar other night on discord, wasnt your fault it was all on winblowz getting me triggered. I sworn I unblocked the x64 dll and that was the issue. Saved the blank entries that it couldn't find?, just in case. put that into a separate file for reference. Own all DLCs except Global mobilization, not sure if that is relative also or not. Anyway here is what I got. AiO.1.96.146114 Contact Disabled: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EUaHaapj1vEzvpAiWyYTi_-e4Jnj6nuH/view?usp=sharing AiO.1.96.146114 Contact Enabled: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1JCnFMZyvtlGmv64bfbz3ATGmp_sofspP/view?usp=sharing
  4. anyone get this working lately. keep getting CallExtension 'ConfigDumpFileIO' could not be found. Its unblocked and in the root folder of arma3 so not sure whats up trying to do a dump for Livonia. B.E. is off, File Patching is on. A/V isnt blocking it and deems it safe. So honestly Im at a loss now.
  5. Long story short... and please only comment if you have experience in this OR work for BI. Scope: Contact Campaign Ep1, 2 there is a sinkhole crater created where the alien root network breaks thru and a bobcat crashes into it, then in Ep2 you go do some recon on the same factory area. Question: Is recreating these scene(s) in any way shape or form legal to do so? The objects in question can not be found in the Eden editor BUT they can be called from a script and placed out. So before I share this info with the world I would like to get a legal stance yes/no if its okay to do so. Its not doing anything special just spawning a simple object by model name (which after tons and tons of digging figured out on my own and with some help of others) changes placement etc and makes the sinkhole scene again that mission creators can then employ in both SP and MP missions. I know it might seem kinda anal to be asking this but honestly Im not in the mood to get in a legal fight or banned for sharing this info to the public with everyone, so for now only I know how to do it but something this big for anyone who is working with Livonia and want to preserve what happened in Contact, this is a big thing... More then likely at least in my honest opinion it would be. This script does not work unless you own contact AND have the DLC loaded (with or without mods) and the mission file wont load otherwise either so its not one of the global assets either. But to cover my arse, I had to post and ask this.
  6. Yeah I seen on Reddit someone's post guessing it was yours. btw thats backwards dont forget to rotate it 180. originally when I started I asked about no-one had a clue nor ever said it can be done a few people even asked me to tell them if I figured it out when I was digging about. Both ways work. guess its a matter of pref Im only using it as basically a static prop and reproducing what it looked like after they started building the dome over it. But its more completed (60% cover vs 30% in the campaign) just part of the flow for what Im trying to plan out as a long term Alive campaign on Livonia. Do appreciate the feedback. Big thing was I thought this was hidden somehow inside contact's containers but could been real late for me and I was looking at the wrong thing. basically didnt see A3 anywhere seen it pointing at somewhere in 'contact' folder why I was really hesitant to explain how. but then someone pointed out it wasnt but sitting hidden in A3.
  7. nevermind, apparently what I was playing with was infact in the A3 public folder and not directly in contact only. so script dropped... enjoy mission makers re-creating exactly the alien root scene @ the factory.

    Apex Framework

    yeah the thing is like I said people unloading them too far away 30m isnt that much esp if you putting the huron down. Simple solution is just load them into a quad or any vic near the fence then unload them again. I only brought it up because the marked helo pads that people should land at are not even close. (maybe add a pad next to it in that open spot? just an idea)

    Apex Framework

    its hard to say cuz Ive noticed it being seeminly randomish?. def noticed that vics like to despawn after towing them and then try to move out just one example I personally know of. like take take a rewards cheetah and try and tow the ammo truck behind it would just randomly despawn it soon as I start moving out. also re: unloading prisoners The range of the unloading from a vic seems too strict? you litteraly have to land the helo or drive a vehicle right next to the fence prison for the mission to transport the POW not to fail. example: if you like land on a landing pad and unload the prisoner then escort him into the prison and release the POW, the escort mission fails unless you unload the POW like I said very close to the prison.

    White Phosphor NODs (NVGs)

    just for shits and giggles how are you handling the turning on and off. Ive had whitephoshor NVG code for over 2 years now out there I just never could figure a way to hook into its activation without creating 'yet another..' suspending script loop that.. Q_S thought that maybe editing the RSC layer for NVG (if I remember correctly?) would be the only way around it but thats way over my head anyway cheers def gonna check it out.
  11. bumping a very very old post because its happening again as of latest updated and been happening alot with very little mods loaded (like 5...) ie. the problem has been revived had to stop using the default memory manager and use window's version now.
  12. This is mainly for the developers or anyone who actually knows for fact the inner workings of arma physics.... Which model is arma using for calculating ballistic calculations for bullet flight? ASM or ICAO? I see people making mods trying to give 'realism' and they using apparently two different standards according to the ammo data given.Vanilla says ICAO (g7) but also ASM (G1) I just want to make sure that arma can tell the difference.
  13. yeah I just wanted to make sure this wasnt something that happened in vanilla but typically wasnt publicly accessable. thanks for all the info.
  14. Interesting. Im guessing then the mods added this I'll have to ask there then since one of them is dependent on the other. thanks for the info I wasnt sure how indepth arma was with physics calculations with projectile flights. thanks for the info.
  15. contact him again and get permission to opensource it all with attribution or whatever permissions wished cuz alot of people still use this and other MAS mods but no-one around to maintain anymore it seems. Really wanna hit this push to github and go public with them all.... its 2018 now and there hasnt been nothing maintained in a long time now it seems.
  16. Well what is the point of assigning extra threads then? for me it seems its loaded across 4 cores 40% and 1 at 90-100ish. but this kinda got off topic I was just wondering if the HT option had any factor with multithreading AMDs and if so it has some issues....
  17. Not sure if anyone has tried or reported this. Apparently when I apply the 'hyperthreading' (aka multi-threading option) start to get blinking/artifacts dealing with shadows with my 1950x TR. Should I be using this option for a non Intel or not? if not, am I multithreading still? Given I got 16cores/32threads to use, brings up a important question as to if arma can even effectively use my CPU to it's fullest or does the game need to be updated for even this possiblity? Any feedback would be appreciated.
  18. I have it all the way down to 8 currently and it still barely loads up those cores so Im happy with it... if its actually multi threading, that I cant tell.

    Invade & Annex: Apex Edition

    Cant wait!
  20. Unfortunately its not the source nor cause of the bug, so back to the drawing board on locating it... and start adding in diag_log's....
  21. Just wondering but I'm from mainly from java so seeing this message spammed 1700+ times over the course of a few hours clientside. Could this be the possible source or using this method of assignment? if (cfg_foo == 1) then {cfg_foo = true} else {cfg_foo = false}; foo is already a number or integer/float(cfg datatype and that is the case in this situation). And that just made it a bool now... Would it not be safer to do this and possibly less spammy, and log bloating... (using -nolog should not be a solution) if (cfg_foo == 1) then {foo_bool = true} else {foo_bool = false};
  22. That is the issue it doesn't say at all where its happening. the log file repeats nothing but "Bad conversion: bool" it doesn't name where, or what or anything... to even remotely indicate where its happening
  23. Well to me that is common sense to me at least. right now I am mainly wondering if arma might be crying over using the above method for the most part.
  24. Simple, if you are grouped with anyone while flying the blackfish it mucks your throttle up completely unless you make a seperate team and make it private. not to mention opening chat, your map. and many numerous ways (which happens to all fixed wing aircraft) to make it just magically change randomly to something you did not leave the throttle at...
  25. " The update applies to the Shikra, Black Wasp II, Sentinel, Gryphon and Buzzard. We welcome your feedback on our forums. Thanks! " So you ignored the one plane that cant even take off from Tanoa without smacking the landing gear at the end of the runways.... The Neophron. Nor any mention of finally fixing the throttle problem when grouped in MP with other players flying the VTOL which requires one to be alone in a private one. And I hope you put them stall changes in opposite for VTOLs. They drop like rocks too easy right now...... they need the opposite effect.
