  1. @stanhope That did the trick! Thank you so much for the assist! Edit here is the final, In the player init call the script: [player] execVM "damage.sqf"; and then...
  2. Thanks @stanhope I honestly completely forgot about the .rpt files and was only squinting at the black debugger text. Here is the error being thrown and I can't seem to make sense of it... must be in reference to uiSleep 0.1;
  3. Thanks @stanhope, I now simply call the script in player inti: [player] execVM "damage.sqf"; remove extras: allunits removeAllEventHandlers 'HandleDamage'; allunits addEventHandler [ "HandleDamage", { and move on with the following but throwing a few errors...am I so far off below?: My thinking is that it is something to do with the lines near bis_fnc_reviveEhHandleDamage, to which is not really important to keep in there from the source code if causing an issue
  4. @stanhope very happy for your reply, as I noticed you commented in the source threads! To begin the mission there are about 30 groups at mission start and there are scripted triggers using BIS_fnc_spawnGroup for the rest that spawn in periodically throughout the mission. Is the answer to this perhaps to add: _loopHandle = spawn "damage.sqf"; (where my own script is called by the player's init line? and then add damage.sqf as follows: I tested that out but no luck thus far...
  5. Hello all, I've posted some sources that I have referenced below, which have helped me to further my own understanding of EventHandlers/HandleDamage and reducing damage to specific units. I am successfully able to use the scripts on individual units but I am struggling in my understanding as to how to apply these modifiers globally (to all units starting or spawned in later during a mission) via singleplayer init.sqf script or other mission start script. For instance, if I take one of the scripts like the one posted in the spoiler (removing the // of course) why can't I use instead of "player" use something like "allunits" to apply the damage modifier globally to... well... all units? Additionally, if I did get this working would the script cause more lag/latency by being applied to every unit on the map? Thanks for any advice! My main goal is to toughen up some of the infantry units in the global mobilization DLC which do not have body armor like their 2035 cousins.
  6. Thank you so much Pierre! Especially for your time and patience! Seeing it spelled out from your examples helps me so much. I am eager to continue learning via the pinned topics.
  7. @pierremgi, I hope to not monopolize your time, but would you be able to show me a little bit more on how to implement what you are saying in the code when you have the time? I have not been able to get the MGItest variables (neutral, red, blue) to work to set the value of last occupation just yet... I really appreciate your guidance thus far.
  8. @pierremgi, I really enjoyed learning from your code above! An obstacle that I am having is with the <=, >=, <, > statements for what I am trying to do. If I use <= or >= (less than, greater than or equal to) either the OPFOR or BLUFOR immediately controls the spawn area. In my tinkering with your code, I took out the equal to and left only the less than or greater than statement; however this then requires constant occupation of the area by BLUFOR or OPFOR. Is there any way around this by just having a “last to occupy statement?” I hope to be less vague in my intent: I am working on a capture the island like mission where BLUFOR and OPFOR are fighting over strategic objectives using Rydiger/NR6 excellent Hetman AI commander. When a neutral (not yet activated) or adversary objective area is taken (within the trigger area) it’s important for immediate detection to be visualized (marker color change) to indicate that the area has changed possession and then later for reinforcements to spawn every 30 minutes so long as the capture conditions continue to be met. (Testing every 60 seconds; it’s also okay if there is an immediate group to spawn but not preferred). This was my original thinking trying to experiment originally with multiple triggers. // I removed the waypoint order (HETMAN AI commander will handle; replaced <=/>= with < and > to stop immediate BLUFOR ownership and added the redundant if line after } else { for my visual learning.
  9. @pierremgi Thank you very much for your time and tutoring! I will give this a shot today and also check out your custom spawn group module, I believe that I stumbled on your YouTube channel during my initial research. 🙂
  10. Hello everyone, I've been watching and reading a few tutorials on triggers but I am not having much luck on the repeatability of my triggers based on met conditions. My intent is for a side to seize an area and for set AI Groups to repeatedly spawn every 60 seconds (for test purposes) until the other side seizes back the objective. So far I am able to get both west/east side's groups to initially spawn per the triggers below but I would like them to consistently spawn on my "marker" once the "seized" conditions are met by the first trigger. I can only get the repeatability to work when the first trigger is consistently tripped by the player, side ai, or using not present activation type due to the nature of a trigger... is there anyway around this to have the second trigger flip on regardless based on the first so long as the area has been seized? One thought that I had was to make the condition off of the marker, such as "marker" is colorblue/colorred and for that to activate the second trigger but I am unsure as to how to do this For reference I have these four triggers on the map: I'd be very appreciative of any help and hope that I am not overlooking something very simple 😅, thank you!
  11. Absolutely amazing modification Petrtlach! I'm really enjoying playing CSA38 with the Forgotten Fronts content and exploring several historical and alternate-history situations. Thank you very much for creating the mod, and keep up the great work!
  12. Hello all, Firstly, I wanted to say thank you to the ALIVE team for making such an awesome contribution to ARMA 3. ALIVE truly brought ARMA back to life for me! My question pertains to getting the Global Mobilization DLC to work with the ORBAT Creator. I have entry level knowledge in utilizing the ORBAT creator to create new factions/groups to success, but the GM DLC content groups (compatible and incompatible) won’t show despite displaying as a faction in the ORBAT overview. I’ve read on GITHUB about this issue: “Non uppercase faction names or inconsistent case for faction names lead to ALIVE not detecting them” https://github.com/ALiVEOS/ALiVE.OS/issues/651 From user senevoldsen: There is sometimes inconsistency in the addon for what the classname is for a faction and that of its units. For Global Mobilization there exists CfgFactionClasses faction gm_fc_DK, but some all units have lowercase faction = "gm_fc_dk", While GM does not seem "group-compatible" with the Orbat creator, the end result of this that even the unit editor is not, so groups cannot even be manually constructed. Questions: Is there any way to get around this, as I am rather desperate to get the GM DLC content I have been enjoying over to ALIVE? Can faction “gm_fc_DK” be overridden to a proper readable format to ALIVE? Or vis-versa can all of the “gm_fc_dk” unit names be changed? GM uniform content was showing up in the ORBAT Creator and part of me thought about reskinning CSAT troops as East Germans, etc…but not certain how to force vehicle content to do something similar. Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
  13. @Groove_C Thanks for the discussion on the RAM, that really helps me understand where I went wrong. I did even more reading about CAS latency. @oldbear Yep! My monitor is an old DELL from around 2008/2009 - 1080P Max Resolution. I currently have my computer set up to a new Sony Bavaria TV (Sony BRAVIA X720E) via HDMI and its working well enough. Ofcourse the old build doesn't make full use of the TV's capability. I might consider a new monitor soon but I currently don't have the space for a desk but I do for a 55" TV.
  14. Oldbear, Thank you very much for response! I have gone into this thread some more as well as elsewhere on reddit, PC forums, steam etc. Things that I now understand especially is that single core CPU performance is huge in ARMA and the AMD Ryzen chips are a good way to go. I was very impressed by the AMD Ryzen 7 3800x in terms of comparisons to INTEL (bang vs. buck) and I don't think that I want to mess around with overclocking. Before you responded, I had been playing around with the PC Part Picker Website... not sure if the link will work below but this is what I came up with. Am I completely off base here? If anything I feel like I am low price wise from my budget on the graphics card....

  15. Hi all, My question is very similar to that of "Just Eric" above, but more in terms of building components as my computer has aged a fair bit since my late OFP to early ARMA days. Does anyone have a recommended updated 2020 gaming rig build, almost exclusively to be used for ARMA 3? This is the most system demanding game I play. I'm probably looking to sink around $1500 and buying parts through NEWEGG/AMAZON. Try not to laugh... but I am currently playing ARMA 3 on my 2008 computer build and having some success on the lowest settings getting at an absolute maximum ~30 FPS. I enjoy playing single player with lots of AI units and even with the "ALiVE Mod" virtual profiling I understandably drop to very low FPS inside towns and around just a few AI squads.... time for an upgrade! Current Specs: OS: Windows 7 CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X3 720 Processor, 2.8GHz, 3 Core(s) GPU: ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series (2808MB total Memory), (Display Mode 1920 x 1080 (32 bit) (60Hz) DirectX Version: DirectX 11 RAM: 4GB DDR3 I'd greatly appreciate any input, Thank you!
