  1. yes, its related with JIP. for example if i enter the server first and then my friends, they get the right position of all the units. How can this be achieved on initserver.sqf? what i did is on the init _root = parsingNamespace getVariable "MISSION_ROOT"; [this,[0, _root + "texture.paa"]] remoteExec ["setObjectTexture"]; but i dont know how to do it without remoteExec. it worked and my friends can see the billboards, but i think for complex missions with more players will cause issues.
  2. thank you. i looked around and found some alternatives: for the billboards, i placed this on the init field: [this,[0,"texture.paa"]] remoteExec ["setObjectTexture"]; and the flag, on the init.sqf: if (isServer) then { flag1 setFlagTexture "flag.paa"; flag2 setFlagTexture "flag.paa"; auc setFlagTexture "auc.paa"; }; seems to work, but haven't tested yet. i'm on it and i will tell you.
  3. Hi. I'm new to Arma 3 scripting and mission editing. I have problems when I try to play my MP mission with some friends: 1. I have some custom textures on billboards and flags on my scenario: for billboards on their init: this setObjectTextureGlobal [0,"texture.paa"]; and for flag: this setFlagTexture "Flag.paa"; I tried the scenario on eden as SP and MP myself and was working as intended. Unfortunately when me and my friends try to load the real game with me as a host/server, we have some texture missing warnings. The strange thing is that not all the textures are missing, some of them are loading, and others don't. All off them are placed on the mission root folder. Seems that is related with a path Issue because they get on the warning my local path "D:/users/me/..blablabla.../mp_missions/misionname/" I double checked and all my textures are relative like the one you can see above. tried to re-save the mission without binary option and they told me got a script missing warning also. I learned that setFlagTexture is not MP compatible: "In MP this command has to be executed where Flag Pole is local. If you add Flag Pole in the editor, it will be local to the server, so executing setFlagTexture on the server will change flag texture on all clients. The command is also persistent and is synchronised for JIP clients." I dont understand this at all. Where I should do this. Should I add a line on the init.sqf that says something like: if (server) then { private myflag setFlagTexture "Flag.paa"; } about the missing path issues, i found this post: http://killzonekid.com/arma-scripting-tutorials-mission-root/ is this related with my issue? which one of this approaches mentioned there should i use? or should I load the setObjectTextureGlobal of each texture in the initPlayerLocal.sqf file instead? or Load them with a remoteExec? can someone provide me a snippet of how to do this correctly? Please advice.!! 2. I placed some units: all of them are with BIS_fnc_ambientanim: [this, "LISTEN_BRIEFING", "MEDIUM"] call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim; 0 = this spawn {waitUntil {behaviour _this == "combat"}; _this call BIS_fnc_ambientAnim__terminate;} and the same as the other problem. When i test it myself works fine. when I'm with friends the position and altitude of all the units are messy, they sometimes are far away, and some do others don't. som do the anim, others don`t. some are trapped in between the first and second floor. What can i do? 3. I would like to know how to test the mission like if I was one of the clients. how can i achieve this? Thank you so much. i really appreciate any help or advice you could give me. thanks.
