  1. Its been awhile since I messed with these but I was going through the library and the composition feature today. Using it seemed easy in the past as you only really had one call to use to activate it. That being; _newComp = [(getPos this), (getDir this), "FuelDump1_US"] call (compile (preprocessFileLineNumbers "ca\modules\dyno\data\scripts\objectMapper.sqf")); Of course that was for the US Fuel dump and when used in game, that works fine. But when you use another name in its place, for example. "vehicle_park_ru1" it comes back as "Script not found" I am using ACE 2. Could that be an issue?

    ACE for OA 1.13

    If I'm not using actual sounds/voices, is having the text appear on screen still considered a channel? By that I mean, setting a plane named plane1, that's airborne at the start of a mission and I also set a trigger that activates when said plane flies through it, In the "On activation" box of the trigger I type the following, Plane1 sidechat "This is your captain speaking, blah, blah, blah" the text for those words should appear, regardless whether of whether or not I have actual voices attached to them. But in ACE, they don't. In Vanilla A2 they appear, as well as OA, CO, etc. So if its not ACE what else could it be? If you change it to globalchat, it works. But sidechat, groupChat, and vehicleChat do not. Not sure how else to explain it.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    ACE disabling them is all I can think of since they work fine for vanilla A2 and CO. As for the description, no, there is very little in that at the moment. EDIT- Just to be more clear, all I am referring to is the actual text appearing onscreen and nothing else. I don't mean anything audio.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    IS there something that I need to re-enable in the aceclippi in order to get "Sidechats", "Groupchat" or "vehiclechat" working again? I've already re-enabled the radio feature, but that's mostly for chatter. Globalchat still works but that's it and that won't work for some of the missions I have made. Greatly appreciate any help. ☮

    ACE for OA 1.13

    LoL, I just wanted to know if anyone from ACE ever gave in and mentioned what the freakin banana is for? Endurance?
  6. Thanks a ton. Appreciate the answer, sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. But I got it going with one difference and that being I still had to create 2 separate HC/commander/Subordinate modules and still link them to to their respective groups. Regardless, who cares, exactly what I was looking for. Thx again!
  7. OK, maybe I put this thread in the wrong place before, so now its here. Multiple High Command Units For One Side During One Mission. Can it be done and how? I'm designing a mission that hopes to have two players controlling there own rifle companies, or at least parts of one, but I can't figure out how to do it or if it can even be done. I've tried assigning different names to each module, however, the first module always ends up controlling all EVERY BLUFOR unit on the map.A Different faction would work also if that's any easier. Thanks, Chris Feel free to delete this same thread on the Q&A page if need be. I thought that for some reason A2 Editing was closed because I couldn't find it at the time so I put it there. ✌
  8. Can it be done and how? I'm designing a mission that hopes to have two players controlling there very own rifle companies but I can't figure out how to do it or if it can even be done. A Different faction would work also if that's any easier. Thanks, Chris
  9. OK, so I am finishing up the last of my missions for a campaign I am creating and there are a couple of things I could use some advice/help on. The most important are, how do I carry over the same soldiers and their equipment from one mission to the next? For example, in the first mission, the player controls 15 men with assorted weapons. The mission itself is basically a "No win" situation as their parent unit is overrun and they themselves are trapped behind enemy lines, so to speak. I haven't gotten thru that first mission yet with everyone surviving, so, if the team meets their objectives and the mission ends and there are only 10 of them instead of 15, where do I need to adjust things so that at the start of Mission #2, those very same men AND the same amount of ammo/weapons are the same counts as they were at the end of mission #1? I'm assuming it is done in the Campaign Description file, however, so far, of the campaigns that I have unPBO'd and examined, I haven't seen this done. This can be done can it not? Any helpful input is greatly appreciated.:D

    SP Player Death

    Thanks guys. Yeah, I wasn't trying to respawn and the unit I was using was a "Playable" one. I'll use the allowdamage false now that I know it again. I just restarted on Arma 2 after 4 months so some of the syntaxes are slow in coming back to me. and I'm too lazy at times to look them up. But thank you. I just wanted too see if there was ever a larger fix for the issue, but no biggie. Peace!

    SP Player Death

    I just wanted to find out if anyone has had the same problem that I'm about to explain and if there is a remedy for it. Just now, I was testing an AI artillery script, I first watched the rounds launch and then teleported back near the target area. Apparently, I got a little to close and was schwacked by a 122mm round, killing me. Fine. No big deal. The problem is tho, that after I die, nothing happens for the longest time. The mission doesn't end, it just shows me lying on the ground dead. After about 5 minutes, the screen went its traditional red. Cool right? Nope. The screen stayed red without an option to either end mission or switch to another player. It just stayed red and finally, after ten minutes of waiting, I had to close the game as a whole and restart. This happened in the editor preview but has also happened in a regular saved mission. Has anyone had this happen to them and if so, can it be resolved in some way w/o having to kill the entire game? Thanks, Chris

    COWarMod Release

    Really quick question. What addon changes how your squad members Icons look at the bottom of the screen? Instead of the default vanilla green to being a little more detailed?

    JTK Weapon Suppressor Script

    Kempco, Hey, I have hopefully what's nothing more than a quick question. Is there a class name or some kind of parameter I can use in order to start a mission with the Suppressor already attached to whatever weapon I'm using? The reason I ask is b/c for one, I use ACE pretty much 100% of the time, however, as I mentioned on another topic, I've had an issue using certain functions of that MOD, in particular the "Self Interaction Menu." It just doesn't appear for me and I'm also unable to edit any of the settings, in this case, the key commands. I can go into the settings screen but not only can I not change any of the key settings, I don't even know what some of them are since NONE of them have anything listed. The box is empty. For example, the "Self Interaction Menu" is listed, but the box that's to its right, is empty and shows nothing. Its just a white box. So, I'm trying to a least find some shortcuts around the issue for right now. Hence, why I ask about a class name or start up parameter. Thank you.

    COWarMod Release

    Günter Thank you. Yes. The "L" key was it. As for using the mod in ACE, I am indeed using the ACE version of the COWarMod for it. The conflict with the interaction menu in ACE isn't related to the COWarMod tho. The issue exists even if the ACE Mod(s) are the only mods I am using. I'm not even able to see what keys are which in the settings let alone change any of them. They all appear as blank white boxes. Its beyond odd. But, at least this works so there is one small victory. =P

    JTK HALO Script by Kempco

    That's a negative. The chute deploys fine and at first all seems well. My rate of descent with the deployed chute decreases until I'm about 50 meters or so off of the ground and than I notice that I speed up slightly. Apparently, its enough to kill me. But I've tested this ONLY in SP and have done no switching. Just now, I actually went and made everyone but myself, the TL. non-playable and sure enough, I still die.

    JTK HALO Script by Kempco

    Ive got to have missed something, somewhere, I can't seem to land alive to well.....save my life. Ive deployed my chute at various altitudes and speeds and still I die. I've waiting until the AI in my stick deploy their chutes, I even manage to remain in relative formation with the rest of them, pop the chute and land as they are landing, still, I die they don't. What am I missing? Thanks

    COWarMod Release

    Ive got a quick question regarding the tactical flashlight. I tried the example mission that is given and that works all well in good for attaching it, but how do you turn it on? I'm also using it with ACE and currently have been having issues that i can't seem to get an answer too with getting the self interaction menu for ACE to work. Is it turned on through there? If so, than that makes sense but if not, I'd love to know. Thanks.

    Balkan war mod w.i.p

    Guys, just gotta say that I love your mod. its easily one of my top three. Just the variety of equipment alone gets an A+ so needless to say I am patiently awaiting your next release. I'll be the first too admit that I don't throw enough compliments out there in general towards any number of mods in the Armaverse, but having seen yours listed in the "Weekly Report" i had too. Keep it up!

    ACE for OA 1.13

    OK, I'll try this again. Is there a way to either replace whatever file controls the Self Interactive menu or just disable it all together? I can set up some triggers for my guys to plant satchel charges using the radio and action keys, but I myself have no way of planting them myself. Similar issue with fires. In the version I download yesterday that version engulfed the showed buildings that hit to catch fire and burn hard. However, Vanilla ACE does not do that either. Can't that be adjusted so the fires burn a little longer? instead o collapsing into dust.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    Agreed. I could go for an update myself. Too many isues with earlier versions.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    Hey guys, I just wanted to float this question out there in regards to some issues I've been having regarding both the Stable and non stable versions of ACE for OA/CO. I have a ticket in over at Dev-Hev but obviously those guys are undoubtedly busy so I just wanted to pose the question here and see if anyone knows a solution or has had a similar issue. The issue is this, I've been using the stable release of ACE 2 for sometime now. Obviously, the realism factor makes it desirable to have, especially for me. The CO version I currently use is 1.60 & not 1.62. (I used to use 1.62 but had a number of conflicts with other addons and mods so I went back to using 1.60. The ACE 2 Stable version I use is 1.3.0.252. The biggest problem I'd like to be able to fix is that I am unable to use the "Self Interaction Menu." By default it should be able to be accessed by the right Windows Key and right Alt or Ctrl Key. However, when pressed, none of them do anything. Which leads me to the 2nd part of the problem. I am also unable to go into either the Main menu or the IN GAME menu and change any of the ACE settings. While I can enter the in game menu and see the options, I am unable to elect any of them and change them. In fact, the windows for example, have just a blank, white box so if you're looking at the controls for the keyboard, you can see where it says "Self Interaction Menu" and to the right is that box that normally should say what key to use or allow you the option of changing the key, however, as I said, the box is empty white and I am unable to click on it to change it. I did get an initial response from Dev_Hev about going into the clippi file and making sure my profile name was listed, which it wasn't at the time but even after changing that, I still have the same issue. Also, I removed the stable version of the mod and reinstalled the latest version with Six Updater and tried that. It still did not work, in fact, it was actually worse as it was missing files that prohibited me from going into missions of mine. It also didn't even recognize certain items. In the stable version I could at least equip a unit with flashbangs and tear gas, but I could not use them. In the non stable version, it doesn't even recognize them nor did it add any of the ACE specific objects or equipment such as the M84, M7 or other flashbang. Also, since the self interaction menu does not work, I am also unable to deploy satchel charges, mines, gas mask, IED's etc. So, what I'd like to know is there any way in which I can disable the use of the SIM and instead use the same method of deploying those items as one can in the Non-ACE/Stock/vanilla Arma 2 menu version? Is there anything I can change in the config or other file that could allow me to do this, at least until I get the overall issue resolved? Any help or advice is greatly appreciated. EDIT- Also, one item that I am able to use is the 40mm CS round for the m203/320 GL's and while it does detonate. It has zero effect on anyone. Not the player nor the AI. Its basically just a smokeshell round.

    Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but regardless of whatever unit I use, at least so far, I always start the mission with an injured leg. BIS units, P '85, TF Knight, Tier One Ops and others all begin injured. Thankfully however, AI units do not. Just the player unit.
