U have to change to: text="\ui\data\splash1_co.paaâ€; Also the startup parameter –nosplash makes the error disappear

    How do i reinstall the download version?

    The download links are personal,no chance Wolle can give them to you. Contact the customer support department: support.vente@metaboli.com with your order number,and the e-mail adress you used when you first purchased your game.

    This is definately the work of Mandoble. He can be contacted on OFPEC

    I cannot answer your questions because I havent got the time nor the passion anymore (like I had in OFP)to desperately find out how things work.Also the use of SQF and Displays requires U almost to be a programmer or equal (education i never had). Somehow its hard to understand why there isnt more info from official sources. Anyway,I had the same intrest like U have,as Displays seems more "userfriendly" then Dialogs as they dont interrupt the game,seems to have more options in shape/color..etc If its any good to you,"The Armory" uses alot of Displays,open up these missions and try to understand.

    That's not true from what I can tell. I think UNN is right. U just explained the difference between Dialog and Display.

    You know when you have played too much ArmA

    If you check the dead bodies around a traffic accident to find out if someone maybe has a RPG.

    Respawn available, but not to ONE side?

    I did it like this: -Placed respawn_west on a small island. -Added killed EH to west that executes Kegetys Spectating script.

    Group engaged?

    Just did a very small test with CurrentCommand while AI was moving the return was "MOVE",as soon he spotted me it changed to "ATTACK" Donno if that can help ya

    Count dead civilians

    You only offered a part of the solution Kylesarnik: Your second trigger will fire and do what? So Fer was actually answering the whole question,and not at all trying to make u look bad. Anyway,IMHO that "thing" (BAS_f) is avoiding more trouble then it creates.

    Spawning A Bird aka seagull

    Put a player on the map,write in his init: <table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">bird = "hawk"createvehicle getpos player You will see a dead hawk on your feet. If you put this code in the initline of a GameLogic,you can then set your GL wherever U want,the bird will slowly fall to the ground. I tried with this code; <table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">bird = createVehicle ["hawk", getpos player, [], 0, "FLY"] but this crashes ArmA

    Eventhandler issue

    Thats an option Synide,but I am afraid it wont work on respawning vehicles... Mp,respawning vehicles and eventhandlers...,not simple. Nothing to test on here,so what happens: --1--:_vcl addEventHandler ["getin",{setViewDistance 3000;setTerrainGrid 25}]; Does this only run for he who got in or for everybody? --2--:_vcl addEventHandler ["getin",{_this exec "script.sqs"}]; script.sqs: _enterer = _this select 2 ?(player != _enterer):exit setViewDistance 3000;setTerrainGrid 25 exit Does this runs everywhere,alltho executed within server only scope?Or write this line above the ""if (!local Server) exitWith {};"" --3--:_vcl setVehicleInit "EH stuff here" Does this make your EH work on a respawned vehicle?

    Eventhandler issue

    <table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">if (!local Server) exitWith {}; Means it runs on the server only.Donno,what is the return for "player" on a server? <table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><tr><td>Code Sample </td></tr><tr><td id="CODE">_vcl addEventHandler ["getin",{if(player==_this select 2) then {setViewDistance 3000;setTerrainGrid 25;}}]; Maybe try to run this code local?

    Flag Return

    Yes Jack, Thats one option,hard to explain as I dont have a clue how u set up your map,what scripts are already running,etc You might also consider another delay before u return the flag when your flagrunner is dead,so your friends can take it over... A good advice,grab a template (BAS_f or ECL MP) and learn, it will save U a lot of time.
