    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    Nope no joy. First I tried tweaking it in my mission (i.e. moving it away from everything, ensure I had set the trigger properly, etc). First I got script not found: rearm.sqf So I changed this: Activation: {[_x] execVM "rearm.sqf"} foreach thislist; to this: Activation: {[_x] execVM "C:\Documents and Settings\User 1\My Documents\ArmA 2 OA Demo Other Profiles\<name>\missions\first.TakistanLite\rearm.sqf"} foreach thislist; As before & again no joy. I then followed your example to the letter &......[wait for it!]......script not found: rearm.sqf So I extended the path again & predictably enough NO JOY! lol. Nothing, nada, zip! :j: I just don't understand where I'm going wrong!

    I'll have another go in a bit (about to eat). Thanks for your help. I will report back as to how I get on (I'll move the trigger out away from everything else to see if that makes a difference). Cheers EDIT: I am trying these out using preview in the editor. Would that matter?

    yep, I put it here: C:\Documents and Settings\User 1\My Documents\ArmA 2 OA Demo Other Profiles\RomeoSierra\missions\first.TakistanLite\rearm.sqf I take it you only have the demo? & not a full version? :confused: This post refers to my problem in earlier post #102

    Thanks, OK cool so that could be an option if someone could help me get them to work in singleplayer then I'll export to MP. :o EDIT: This post refers to my problem in earlier post #102

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    Thanks for the tip but the game won't send "description.ext" to the other players soo.....what do I do? Erm I was thinking (usually my first mistake!:p). How does the game know where "BASE" or "3" actually is on the map? Or is BASE/3 where I put the respawn marker? Cheers EDIT: Please note I need to solve these problems just using the editor & mission.sqm (if possible). Demo only remember. ;) For now. ANOTHER EDIT: Is there some way to add the data from rearm.sqf, description.ext & init.sqf into mission.sqm? This post refers to my problem in earlier post #102

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    Hi all:bounce3:, I've been making a COOP mission with the OA demo editor. I had intended to use the singleplayer editor until it was finished & then copy it over to \My Documents\ArmA 2 OA Demo Other Profiles\RomeoSierra\MPMissions. But I've hit a few snags: Problem 1) Problem 2) Problem 3) I haven't started problem 3 because I saw this: So has that rendered all of the above unworkable? :butbut: (at least in the above fashion) as rearm.sqf, description.ext & init.sqf wouldn't be sent to the client? (not that I can get them to work yet anyway!) How would I need to adjust these scripts 'accordingly'? How would I do this with just mission.sqm? So any ideas folks or am I too limited by the demo? (which is fine btw), I've already had more out of this demo than I thought I'd get. Every time I poke at something new you go 'ahhhhh it works!' or 'ummmm don't work but if....' I would love to get this working so I can hit the ground running when I get Combined Ops! Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers :D

    Force X35 in to forward flight?

    I imagine it would be computer assisted. The pilot may have manual control but if he makes a mistake, for example vectoring in such a way as to send the airframe into a spin or stall, the computer would 'auto-correct' to stop the fatal manoeuvre.

    Install RIGHT now - 1 question -

    How to combine Arma 2 & OA You may wanna have a look at this. I only have the demos at the moment so I can't help you!

    Editor upgrade / additions

    +1. While you may not need scripting it would be nice to have the features made available in a non-techy easy to use way. Cheers

    Force X35 in to forward flight?

    Yeah & flying a heli takes a lot of skill, training, etc. You have to use the cylic, the collective & the pedals all in concert. So if you push the cylic (joystick) forward you have to increase the collective (throttle, to stop you dropping like a stone) & in turn then have to push on one the pedals more (rudder, to stop the airframe spinning as you increase torque. I LOVE realism but you have to draw the line somewhere. Otherwise people would have to go to flight school just to play a game!

    ARMA 2 (OA) : DLC discussion thread

    Nah, I reckon a 50.cal would ruin a helicopters whole day but I do agree with you would have to be a bloody good shot & have a firing position to aim at said chopper without being knocked on your ass when you shoot. I was speaking to a british squadie about 50.cals (MG not sniper) & they call it the pink mist (you can guess why! ew). He reckoned if a 50.cal round passed within 6ins of you the inertia & air pressure would rip chunks off you! OUCH!

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    Well I managed to get onto some servers, without black-screening, after I logged off this forum last night. BIG mistake! lol I've been up all night & I'm wired with adrenaline! It gets sooooo tense. love it love it love it! Well apart from the odd muppet here & there shooting friendlies etc. I suppose I had better get a lil shut eye...oh just one more round. :D

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    thanks for the reply. hmmm well I must admit I only tried two or three :o So it's the same mission that does it to you then? (hmph I didn't take note of the missions either! do'h(pe) lol)

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    Hi all, as you may have gathered from my previous posts I've recently dl'ed both demo's. They seem to run fine (apart from a bit of lag but then my system blows) in single player. But in the OA demo when I join a multiplayer game it allows me to choose sides. Then when I click on proceed (or whatever it is) it comes up with a loading bar & then the screen goes black. I can hear gunfire, 1 is down, etc. I tried a quick search for 'OA demo black screen' & it returned plenty of results but none that I saw seemed to match my case. So any ideas? :confused: AMD Athlon x2 dual core 3800+ (2ghz) 2gb RAM 9600 gt 512mb (driver ver 197.45) (I haven't looked at the a2 demo in multiplayer yet but I will report back on that tomorrow) Help greatly appreciated...thanks ;)

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    I'm just trying to get used to flying helicopters in the demo's. I find myself fighting with the chopper to bring my cross-hairs onto target! You see I used to rip around in the lil bird from bf2 (bunny hop that mother f**ker!:mad:(WOW I won't need to say that any more!:D)). Obviously this being a sim-ish type game; I'm not so much ripping about as smashing n crashing about! I can't hit infantry to well either: I hover about 700-1000m away zoom in & open up missing them completely! :rolleyes: So I was just wondering if anyone has any hot tips other than practise, practise (because I'll be doing that too!). I love flying about in heli's even if it's just air-taxi but I suck at the moment so any hints will be greatly appreciated! Cheers ;)
  16. Cmon guys it's a game! Art imitating life maybe but for BIS to bring RL scenarios & politics into the game (IMO) would be almost suicidal. Many people don't buy the whole war on 'terror' deal (there are many shades of grey & history that people don't take into account). Also many wholeheartedly believe in the war on 'terror' & is clearly a VERY sensitive issue (especially considering the events that triggered all this). EDIT: Let's leave real life at the virtual door & let's carry out massive digitised wars guilt free!

    3 Different IR Strobes, whats the difference?

    Ha ha. You think the military is bothered about wasting money! The bomb that they will drop on the IR strobe probably costs about £50,000 - £100,000. Not to mention the cost of the aviation fuel to get the plane over its target & back home.

    ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead - DEMO!

    Yes I was surprised at how much you can do with the demo's. I was expecting a couple of small missions not the editor too! I have both demo's but I intend to pick up CO as soon as my cash flow allows. If this game was made by (insert big faceless developer) that doesn't care as much as BIS do; I would have dinned out on these demo's for as long as possible but these guys seem different. They actually pay attention to the community & care about the product. For those reasons I'm going to get CO (& British forces) as soon as I can! Keep up the good work BIS!!

    I am, PERMANENTLY! Well that's kids for you! lol

    Look mate he didn't say he was poor (he just might be careful with money, nothing wrong with that). Even if he is poor, what he shouldn't try & have any fun in his life!?! Sometimes us poor types NEED to escape into a fantasy to get a bit of R&R because not all of us can rush off to a sunny relaxing climate to chill. Spread love not hate (just make sure to use protection :p )
  22. Thankyou! EDIT: would this limit my gameplay (apart from cosmetics) for example draw distance of hostiles?
  23. Hi, I've just been playing on the demo & I thought 'gotta have this!' but then I checked the minimum specs. Unfortunately for me, my ageing rig doesn't quite cut the mustard! But the demo seems to run fairly well (a little stutter now & again), so will I get away with it? (please say yes! lol).
