  1. Hi, I just tried it out in the vanilla game (ie Iron Front Liberation 1944 plus the D-Day DLC), placed a player unit, then an AI manned landing craft, named it boat and copied and pasted the exact line into the on act. field of the waypoint, then pressed preview and it worked. Are you using Vanilla IFL or the A2 or A3 port? The method above works in the Vanilla version, but since I do not use the ported versions I cannot vouch for those. Regards, Sander
  2. Hi, It takes these steps to get an AI controlled boat to drop the ramp: (1) Place a LCVP and name it boat (2) Provide the LCVP with a waypoint and put into the On activation field: Regards, Sander

    CWR2 coop pack

    That will not happen. CWR2 is not to be ported over to A3 nor am I going to sign up to a botnet like Steam while I still have my wits. Regards, Sander

    CWR2 coop pack

    For OFP I made only a handful of missions, some of which were in the Lowlands Warrior pack. Mission making only started off proper in Armed Assault, in part because the default content was quite poor, with the coop pack. Although some coops are intended to be played together as part of an overarching setting (most of the Sahrani ones are supposed to be part of one and the same conflict, as were those on Schmalfelden, most of the Takistani missions, including the BAF ones, are indeed intended as related content) many are just stand alone scenario's, the result of looking at terrain and imaging how missions could make use of it. For OFP, Armed Assault or A2/CO I never made any dedicated SP content such as campaigns. Regards, Sander

  17. Hi, There are two ways to accomplish that. (1) Create individually named tasks for each named playable unit rather than a generic task created for player (2) On the check for the event happening, set a variable to a value and broadcast that value to all participants using a publicVariable statement and update each individually named task Or (1) Check for the event, then set a variable to a value and broadcast that value to all participants using a publicVariable statement (2) Check for the variable being set to that particular value and have the tasks completed The topmost method has my preference due to its reliability.

    Game spy end - what will we do?

    Introducing a privilege escalation vulnerability by adding a 3rd party dependency provides a good argument for not making it mandatory. Direct IP connection would work fine for those who made a conscious choice to avoid Steam. Regards, Sander

    USA vs rest of the world

    Actually the Romans did do so continuously, though at varying pace and with to varying degrees (in various cases a subset rather than full rights) till the Constitutio Antoniniana granted these rights to the freeborn provincial populations. A province as a whole was an administrative division and not a community as such, generally subdivided into various communities which could be dealt with separatively with regard to extension of civic rights. Some entities received block grants before others and local elites tended to be coopted with preferential grants of such rights. Regards, Sander

  22. An order to disembark to AI under your command in an aircraft or helicopter requires that aircraft or vehicle to be on the ground before the AI will comply. In case you wish them to jump out while flying you will need to issue them a command to eject. One needs to have sufficient altitude when ordering the AI to do so because if that order is issued when flying too low the parachute jump can result in injury or death of the AI. Regards, Sander
  23. This is a known bug for Arma2 with custom campaign pbo files placed directly into a ...\ArmA 2\Campaigns folder. To ensure no duplicates are shown the campaigns overview one has to place custom campaign pbo files in a ...\ArmA 2\Expansion\Campaigns folder. This affects all SP campaigns and is an undocumented feature of the default game. Regards, Sander
  24. Another trick is to use markers on an identical position and use the setMarkerSize statement in the trigger to alter the size of the markers. For example one might wish to alternate between the flags of two warring parties: (1) Place a marker named flag1 on the map. (2) Place a second marker named flag2 on the map and move it so it covers the first one, then set the size of the marker to 0 and 0. (3) Place a trigger including in the on activation field: This will ensure that the flag displayed on the map will change from the one to the other. BIS Wiki entry on setMarkerSize Regards, Sander
