  1. New to the forum, played since Operation Flashpoint. I want an ammo box to be placed in the jungle with a 100 placement radius(which I know how to do) and have an IR grenade or IR strobe of some sort, be attached to or follow the placement of the ammo box. Im not into scripts yet so preferably in the Init field. Currently I tried placing the ammo box and put the "IR module" next to it and synced it to the box. This works and I see the IR Grenade but once I have a random placement of the ammo box, the IR grenade stays where it is and doesn't move to it. Thanks
  2. How do I make a flare fire every 30 seconds in specific areas? Thanks
  3. thank you ill try it
  4. Can you show me an example please? Thanks
  5. How do I make each flare random within a 100m radius?
  6. Can you explain how these parts work? ["_area", [0,100,200]]]; and _flr setVelocity [0,0,-10]; Thanks
  7. 40mm is much better. Thanks
  8. Thats awsome thanks. Only problem is the flare isnt as bright as the one shot from the grenade launcher. Any idea why? Thanks
  9. Does this get put in a trigger?
  10. Under barrel. Parachute flares

    Tactical Ping issues

    Ok this issue seems to only happen for my friend not seeing my ping and I am the leader. I cant even give him move commands when this happens. Just played a game and it happened 3 times where the ping would work again then shut off. Always after my death and revive.
  12. Does anyone else have issues with the tactical ping not working in multiplayer? It works 80% of the time but i think when it fails it occurs after a respawn. Possibly looking at the map while dead?
  13. Seems to work with men and vehicles only but I cant get it to work with supply and cargo objects. What I had to do was attach a dirt object to the bottom of the Taru container then that works.
  14. What is the best way to activate a trigger when a parachute drop or chopper, touches ground or hits a certain altitude? Right now im using a flat trigger but it doesnt follow the contours of the map. Thanks

    Tactical Ping issues

    This is a much easier to see white circle which will disappear after a few seconds but if marking close objects the circle is huge.
  16. Cant seem to make it work with a Taru cargo pod
  17. Does that go in the Init field of the object? Thanks
  18. Is it possible that when downloading a mod, it could have a virus or malware?
  19. I only get mods from steam but just curious. Probably an inventive way for a hacker to get you to download it. Hopefully steam takes care of protecting from that.

    Just tried it and it seems to just replace the yellow marker with a red circle and the circle seems to stay there until you ping the sky, maybe good or bad feature. The red is harder to see. Ill try it in multiplayer when I have a chance. Thanks

    Does that ping in game or only the map?

    Tactical Ping issues

    I am hosting the mission. Only a couple scripts in the folder mostly triggers. Tactical ping works most of the time. I used to think it stopped working if we looked at the map while waiting for the other to revive us but thats proven wrong. I am now wondering if it is while calling in artillery or heli support while dead, trying to do more testing. If I ever were to save a game then reload, the tactical ping reliably fails but i almost never save games.

    I saw you're video on that but i dont just want to reveal enemies I want to be able for both me and my friend to point things out to each other like "lets go over there" or "hide behind that rock. Exactly like the tactical ping but more reliable. Thanks for the reply

    Alright if no one else has this problem, is there an alternative tagging mod that is similar?
