  1. Hey All, straight forward question. I loaded up a mission I had started back in April, and all of a sudden, everything from conditions, activations, gamelogics, etc are now all wrapped in calls. Example below. Anyone able to tell me what might have caused this all? Did something change since I last made missions and this is the new weird norm?
  2. That method does make a lot more sense. thank you.
  3. Hey All, Right now I have a series of variables that are booleans. terminal_1_hacked = false, terminal_2_hacked = false, etc etc. With that, I am creating a script to addaction. I want to make it so when the script gets it, it changes it to true, but it doesn't seem to work. However, this doesn't seem to work as intended, and I sort of see why, but I am not sure how to pass the variable to the script, and making sure I only change terminal_1_hacker when passed as a variable, rather than building a series of if statement to see which of the variables it is.
  4. Ok, I am still confused. Because this does not change the boolean value of my variable does it? Or am I missing something? The point of the boolean variable (terminal_1_hacked = false/true) is because I have a trigger places that once all three variables switch from false to true, it triggers a new event. That is why I am trying to figure out how to convert a global variable from false to true, so that it can set off another trigger elsewhere.
  5. Thank you, I will test this when I get home in a few hours.
  6. Here is what you set me But the problem for me, with this, is it does not run a script for me. I don't want it to go instantly to true. I want it to switch to true at the end of the script because I want a player animation that looks like the player is using the terminal to run before its "hacked". So is there a way for the script to run and then change the variable? And the reason I was passing it as a parameter is so I could use the same script for all 3 terminals the player has to hack. Is there a way around this? This is also used for online, does that change it at all?
  7. I attached my entire script and I explained the premise above. I have a boolean variable set to false. I then went to pass it, as a variable, into my .sqf script via addaction parameter, to change the boolean value after the rest of the script runs, because I have a total of 3 matching variables, and once all three of them switch from false to true, a trigger will set off. How else can I have a script execute and run, and then change the global variable from within the script without writing within the script the global variable? Because then I would need to write some if statement "if paramter == hacked_terminal then do this, else do this, else do this"
  8. Yeah... I am not really sure whats going on in what you wrote :S It seems like you execute the script for addaction entirely different?
  9. Theres more going on because I want to play animation so I can have a sleep before the termina_1_hacked = true. Here is what I have as a rough draft so far. Essentially, I don't want the trigger variable to switch from FALSE till TRUE until the animation and everything has been completed.

    EDIT: Never mind, issue resolved itself, must have been a one time bug.

    Boeing/SOAR MH-47E ArmA III

    I know this is an old mod, and Konyo is busy, but has anyone figured a way to get these to spawn in air? For some reason, whenever I spawn it in air, the engines are off, only aircraft I seem to have this issue with.

    EricJ Release thread

    Hey EricJ, super stoked to see you back. Your UH-60 mod is, to my, the best mod in all of ArmA, so I am super glad to see you back in action. Also, was not aware you also modded DCS stuff, I will have to check that out as well!
  13. Yep, that seems to have been the fix. Thanks all.
  14. Hey All, This is a script I used for a stealth mission where "sleeping" enemies were considered civilians until they woke up and armed themselves. The script worked about 6 months ago, but as of today, it stopped working. When I disable the script on the units that had it, my mission loads, so there is something specific in this script that is freezing my loading now, and wondering if anyone has any ideas. Here is me launching it in the unit. _nul = [this] execVM "testing.sqf" I have it running on only 10 units. _unit = _this select 0; _knows = False; _knowsabout = 0; _active = False; if (captive _unit) then { _EHkilledIdx = _unit addEventHandler ["killed", "execVM 'civilian_killed.sqf'"] }; while {!_knows} do {{ if ((side _unit) == East AND (_unit knowsabout _x) > 3.5) then { _active = True; _knows = true; } } foreach units squad1; {if ((_unit knowsabout _x) > 3.5 AND (captive _unit) AND (_unit distance _x) <= 3) then { _unit setcaptive false; _active = True; _knows = True; _unit removeEventHandler ["killed", 0]; _unit switchmove "AidlPercMstpSrasWrflDnon_AI"; sleep 1; _unit enableai "ANIM"; _unit enableai "TARGET"; }; } foreach units squad1; }; if (_active) then { sleep 5; if (alive _unit) then {alarm = True} }; Civilians killed is also on civlians, but here it is, just in case. if (isServer) then { civilian_count = civilian_count + 1; officer1 sidechat "Stop killing civilians!"; }
  15. No error, the loader just, freezes. Here is a sample end of an RPT when it starts to hang.

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Hey All, I am not sure how to work around this. I noticed that your units on the US side all have a specific pair of NVGs in their inventory, even when I clear out the inventory, they end up there. When a night time mission starts, they are auto placed into the slot it looks like. So this prohibits me from equipping other NVGs onto RHS units, because when the mission starts, they get over written by the RHS NVGs. Is there a way around this? So far, I have to place the NVGs I want into the inventory, and ask the players to switch... My other workaround has been to use BIS default units and put them in RHS gear, and this solves the problem.
  17. Hey All, I am running into this issue where I am placing, in the Arsenal, a very specific pair of NGVs on my RHS US Unit. Specifically, I am trying to use the ACE Gen 4 NVGs, but when I spawn into a nighttime mission, RHS seems to auto replace them with the RHS AN/PVS 15. This seems like something fairly new since I last played. And I have a bunch of missions I would rather not have to entirely redo my unit placement/gearing up, because of this. So I am hoping there is some way to prevent it from doing this. I checked addon settings and I don't see anything for RHS to disable this. EDIT: Confirmed it only happens with RHS units, so seems to be RHS mod specific.

    POOK SAM PACK (May 2022)

    Hey Pook, Loving the pack. Been great for some of my missions. First, how do I go about making my own site? When I place my own HAWK, Radar, EWR, control station, etc, they dont seem to track. Is placing a "site" require or is there a way to make my own? Second, I am running into an error whenever a HAWK site shoots, I seem to get this popup.
  19. Hey All, Super simple I am hoping, I am trying to make it so that all units on side EAST are captive and passive. Once an event triggers, they go not captive and COMBAT. But my string does not seem to work. {if (side _x == EAST) then {_x setcaptive true; (group _x) setBehaviour "CARELESS"}} foreach allunits I get no errors, but if I walk infront of a redfor, they shoot at me. So not sure where I am wrong on this. I assume its somewhere around the group part but I havent been able to resolve it so far.

    Foreach side not working

    So my original version had it spelled right, and corrected it, but issue persists. {if (side _x == EAST) then {_x setcaptive true; (group _x) setBehaviour "CARELESS"}} foreach allunits EDIT: If I do just this, it works for all units, so the if part of the statement might not be working right? Am I not declaring side properly? {_x setcaptive true; (group _x) setBehaviour "CARELESS"} foreach allunits

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Hey guys, It seems like your FTP server might be down? I am trying to check for updates using the bat file and its timing out,a nd if I go to your website, I cant download anything from there either.
  22. As the title says. I am using the new F/A-181, I am connecting it to the Support Requester CAS (Bombing Run). When I call it in for a laser designated bomb run, it drops the bomb and says 'RTB'. But, if I keep the laser going, the plane will keep circling around and dropping its bombs. I know I can use the virtual to avoid this, but I like having an actual fighter loitering. If I set a waypoint to do not fire, it will circle around the laser and not fire. So am I doing something wrong? How do I get it to actually ignore the laser after its dropped a bomb for its call.
  23. An update on how I got around it. The module allows you to give an 'init' the the spawned aircraft of virtual aircraft module. So I added EH Fired to remove all weapons, disable AI, set to careless, and delete the vehicle after 45 seconds (usually it has flown away by then). So, that is a work around for now.
  24. I mean, it is pretty disapointing. I make shifted my own version where it uses eventhandlers fired to disable the planes ability to find and send it into passive, and then come when radioed and become active again, not sure why BIS seems to struggle doing the same, or what the support module even does really.
  25. The laser can also be used as a range finder, so it sort of makes it useless if I can only use it for that. Plus, it sort of defeats the purpose of limiting how many times the player can call support if the fighter will just loiter forever.
