  1. I'm wondering if it is possible for Zeus to 'switch' to any playable unit in the mission from the Zeus interface? ---------- Post added at 04:30 PM ---------- Previous post was at 04:16 PM ---------- With Zeus open, goto modules/zeus/remote control, click the unit you want to control. Figured that out myself, could not find it ANYWHERE.
  2. Dear Arma community (& possibly arma3 developers), I'm developing an E-Sports website where users can challenge other members to a match/tournament on any online game title, where the entry fee of the match/tournament contributes towards the prize pool. As a huge fan of the BI games and the Arma series I would like to host a dedicated server to run these e-sports events. My question is; Do I require a license or specific permission from BI (or other games for that matter if anyone has the knowledge) to provide the above service; acting as an agent to facilitate users to compete for prizes. I have a letter from the Gambling Commission in the UK to state that I do not require a license from them as the result depends to a large degree on skill and knowledge, however, I am not sure if I will require permission/license that will allow our users to play the game which they have obtained from another party. I am hoping that this is not the case, as we in no way claim affiliation with the game developers/studios, but I think it would be mutually beneficial to have an agreement/permission in-place. Can anyone offer an opinion, point me in the right direction or forward my query to the appropriate persons at BI? Kind Regards, Rob
  3. Is there a contact or department anyone can provide so I can send a written request?
  4. Thanks for the reply. My site is slightly different to this. We act as an agent between users who wish to challenge each-other for cash. We have agreements in-place with various other game titles and it has been seen an mutually beneficial as our focus and interests are vested in the gamer; our goal is to make E-Sports accessible to every gamer and allow users the chance to be remunerated for their skill and dedication to competitive gaming. Would it be possible to forward my request to a developer, or other appropriate person? Many thanks.
  5. I have tried in MP and it works, however I changed: init:
  6. I am trying to create a script or trigger that removes all optics from each player (multiplayer player vs player scenario) and replaces it with a certain scope, which remains after respawn. I have tried 3 methods, all have failed: Method 1 Init.sqf _index = player addMPEventHandler ["mprespawn", {Null = _this execVM "loadout.sqf";}]; loadout.sqf if (side player == east) then { _unit = _this select 0; if (!local _unit) exitWith {}; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_Arco"; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_Aco"; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_Hamr"; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_holosight"; player addprimaryweaponitem "optic_Aco_grn"; }; if (side player == west) then { _unit = _this select 0; if (!local _unit) exitWith {}; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_Arco"; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_Hamr"; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_holosight"; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon "optic_Aco_grn"; player addprimaryweaponitem "optic_Aco"; }; This method does not work as when in Multiplayer, those who are killed and subsequently respawn have the standard optics loadout. Method 2 'Triggers' placed in the spawn area, activated by the class that spawns there From mission.sqm: class Item1 { position[]={5242.6787,163.64134,5972.6284}; a=35; b=35; angle=153; rectangular=1; activationBy="EAST"; repeating=1; interruptable=1; age="UNKNOWN"; name="triggeropfor"; expActiv="player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon ""optic_Arco""; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon ""optic_Aco""; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon ""optic_Hamr""; player removeItemFromPrimaryWeapon ""optic_holosight""; player addprimaryweaponitem ""optic_Aco_grn"";"; class Effects { }; I thought this had worked, and in a working MP server with 40 people it seems to be going well, though after a few kills, I observed people with standard optics again. Method 3 init line of player(s) _handle = [] execVM "SWRepsawn_SRU.sqf" SWRepsawn_SRU.sqf while {true} do { waitUntil {!alive player}; _weapons = weapons player; _magazines = magazines player; waitUntil {alive player}; _p = player; removeAllItems _p; removeAllWeapons _p; {_p addMagazine _x} forEach _magazines; {_p addWeapon _x} forEach _weapons; _primw = primaryWeapon _p; if (_primw != "") then { _p selectWeapon _primw; // for Grenades Launchers _muzzles = getArray(configFile>>"cfgWeapons" >> _primw >> "muzzles"); _p selectWeapon (_muzzles select 0); }; }; I don't think this script takes into account optics, and i don't have the expertise to add it. Thoroughly %$^$%ing worn out with trying to achieve this.
  7. Does not take into account optics or other attachments. Something I have tried and fail to do for the last 3 days.
  8. What exactly do you want to do? If you'd like to add them to a player, the process is as below: 1) find the item you want, for example, the silencer and holosight (use this great resource: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?147502-SIX-Config-Browser-Editing-resource-ARMA-3-Alpha-available) 2) Click on the init line of the player 3) write In arma3 you have to add/remove items from the primary weapon using the above commands. You could just add these items as cargo with the old additem. Hope this helped.
  9. Similar to a few threats here; we're struggling to find the correct way to edit loadouts. Specifically, i'd like to know how to add/remove the optics. Things suggested and tried (example used is the opfor marksman with ARCO optics on his weapon) this unassignitem "optic_Arco"; this removeweapon (or removeitem) "optic_Arco" Any suggestions?
  10. Your the man Tuliq! Works a treat!
  11. Ah, I believe those scripts are saving what the player has when first spawned, not just before death. Give me some time, I will try.
  12. Ill help you out. Paste in your scripts (and link me to that file you mentioned please) and what gear you want and I'll add the stuff and tell you how
  13. Still no joy with this. I don't have the technical expertise with scripting or php to tell if this is an issue with my script or something else.
  14. Of course! Still no joy though. Do I need something in the init line of each player? Or should the Init.sqf file do the business for me? Still stuck on this if anyone wants to offer a helping hand?
  15. Excellent. Thank you. So, it works (yey) however the weapon resets upon death, so a respawn does not allow it to work; I realise I will have to use scripts and event handlers to re-equip each player after death, but I have little idea how to do this. My efforts so far: Clearly i'm doing something wrong, and this IS my first attempt. Any help would be appreciated.
  16. Thanks! How would I find these things myself so I don't look like a lemon again in future.
  17. On a similar note: How to remove optics! this unassignitem "optic_Arco"; this removeweapon "optic_Arco" does not work
  18. Does anyone know a quick way to get the complete list? I have the basic classnames, units, vehicles etc. I'm having trouble however trying to establish where I find weapons/mag classnames. Any ideas? Thanks.
  19. I've had a look... It's for a DM. I'm doing TDM. I get players respawning all over the shop using thier verrrry drawn out respawn config. How hard can it be to get the player to respawn as the driver of a plane already in-air!? I'm completely stumped after hours and hours of scrolling through scpits that don't work and threads =*(
  20. I'm having a similar issue. I am creating a Dogfight mission. I want the planes (players) to respawn FLYING and pilot in the plane at the marker. I have description.etx; respawn=3; respawnVehicleDelay=10; and a marker named 'respawn_vehicle_west' on the map. However, I always seem to respawn without my plane, on the ground!
  21. Being a Brit, I'm paying particular attention to detail. After mission #1 of the campaign, I'm very impressed.
  22. I see many people are suffering from missing 'msvcp71.dll' messages when trying to open Sproketidea's download manager. Here is the solution. Windows 7: Download the 2 files needed If you are using Windows 7 64-bit then you need to put both dll files inside the Windows/SysWOW64 folder as shown in the screenshot below. If you are using Windows 7 32-bit then you need to put both dll files inside Windows/System32 folder as shown in the screenshot below. Windows XP: Copy 2 files into your C:\WINDOWS\system32 Goto Start, then 'Run'. Type: "regsvr32 C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcp71.dll" -without the quotation marks. Will update with any further issues. Happy gaming.
  23. Thread needs consolidating with this one opened in the 'General' section of the forums.
  24. I have noticed this. While I was running BAF content, I had AI in a vehicle behind me (KSK misc in an SUV), whilst me and another player (multiplayer) were in our vehicle 50 meters ahead. We eventually lost sight of the AI, and it had appeared they had disembarked their vehicle without orders (may have crashed, not sure). By this stage they were 400 meters away, and any move, return to formation or individual move orders did not make them get up off the ground and move whatsoever. 2 hours later I returned to that spot, to see the vehicle running, with no damage, and all AI lying on the floor. ---------- Post added at 11:37 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:33 AM ---------- Also, firing the NLAW (Anti-tank launcher) without a suitable lock on flat or sloping +/- ground causes the projectile to hit the ground 10 meters away. Even when firing/aiming considerably higher than horizon.
  25. After 10 minutes running in-and-out of triggers....
