    BMR Insurgency

    by Jigsor Fully JIP, MP, Dedicated and Hosted Server compatible. Performance has been a big factor in developing this mission. It should play well on a modest server. What is the difference from this Insurgency compared to traditional Insurgency? The primary difference is that Intel is not dropped when killing certain Insurgents. Rather, it is spawned in random buildings. Small black markers indicate Intel Locations on the map. You can choose hide the markers with lobby parameter. Minimum Required Mods: None (Altis, Stratis Tanoa and Malden versions). Current supported Islands requiring components of Community Upgrade Project - Terrains Complete : Sarahni Takistan Zargabad Fata G.O.S. N'Ziwasogo Fallujah G.O.S. Al Rayak Napf Napf Winter Saint Kapaulio Lingor Dingor Xcam_taunus Clafghan Staszow Anizay Song Bin Tanh Rosche Germany Stand Alone Islands: Kunduz Afghanistan Bornholm Mogadishu Diyala Lythium I recommend trying default lobby parameters first then tweak from there if needed. Please report any problems on this thread.

  2. Situation: Team Death match Air to Air Combat. Fight Fixed wing battles or helicopter battles. Fly into the hoop to repair, ream, refuel and heal you and any crew members if they exist. The hoop repositions approximately every minute somewhere around the battle center. Side with the most points within set match time wins. Features: Play in multiplayer alone or with others in dedicated or player hosted server. Great for demoing aircraft from vanilla or any mod pack. Battle center is predefined usually around hilly, mountainous or skyscraper city areas or can be changed to a randomly generated sea battle position for better visibility and performance gain. Your aircraft is crewed with AI so you can switch to say belly or side gunner position if any or pilot at any time. Three lobby parameters which Affect AI scaling. The AI can also just be totally disabled. Scalable AI which is a settable count per player up until a settable number of players join and a hard cap which takes precedence of how many max aircraft can exist in total that includes players and AI aircraft. Auto detection of aircraft from mods which are added to Aircraft vehicle pool. Respawn in flight in random aircraft or predefined aircraft from template near battle area. Aircraft pools can be limited to corresponding native player slotting side or have no regard to side. Generates flak around battle center and periodically in service hoop. Incremental overcast options from 0 to 100. Higher settings will generate more random lightning strikes. Auto Counter Measure lobby option lessen the chance of being hit by lockon missiles and can make battle more challenging. This does not deplete manual fire supply. Black listing and whitelisting supported. Aircraft without weapons are automatically filtered from pool. Several aircraft have predefined loadouts. Loadouts can easily be edited or added into script. View Distance setting is saved into player profile each time its adjusted and recalled each time you play this mission. Simple porting instructions included. Three missions offered in the mission pack. Each is the same mission on a different terrain and a couple of default lobby parameters a changed. Includes: TDM_BMR_Air_Combat.Altis because vanilla / no mods required. TDM_BMR_Air_Combat.clafghan because great performance and best suited for Fixed wing combat of all available Arma terrains due to most massive and realistic mountains. (Can be a struggle to traverse with helis). TDM_BMR_Air_Combat.United_States_H The Seattle map has great performance and best suited for heli battles due to massive sky scrapers. Also provides a nice scenic battle ground for fixed wing battles. Best version overall really. Cons - terrain not compatible with CUP terrains core/maps.

    BMR Insurgency

    @Nozzle Hello Nozzle and welcome to the forums. "cannot load texture" error with "bmrflag.paa" This can be ignored. There may be a fix for this but i am unaware of it. To me this is an Arma engine design problem. Why this happens? This happens when a new player who is not the server joins a server running a mission or choosing a mission in mission selection screen wich uses loadScreen command (this mission does). The image is contained in the mission and the mission must first be downloaded successfully in to MPmissions cache in order for the picture to be accessible/viewable. So once the player has the mission this should no longer occur if they play the same mission again. "script vehrespawn.sqf not found" There is nothing actually wrong with this script or script path but probably rather a side affect of missing terrain wich can cause all sort of anomalies. Enoch/Livonia version requires Contact DLC Tanoa versions require APEX DLC The other versions do not require dlcs. At least they never have on our dedicated servers. Also have a look at you latest .rpt when this occurs and have your players look at their .rpt log as well. This will show wich mods and dlcs are actually loaded which may differ from not the ones you thought were loaded.

    @dunadrian This is the first I've heard about this particular issue. Have you tried to verify integrity of game files through steam? I recommend this first then try to connect to this server with no mods. If it happens again there might be something useful in your .rpt log file. You can send me a link to it and I'll have a look. https://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/arma3/2753090

    BMR Insurgency

    And another. 10/22/2019 Hot fix for v1_50 Fixed: Recruited AI would get stuck in Base Respawn fortification on Livonia and Rosche Germany. Fixed: Broke Capture and hold Objective in last hotfix (undefined variable). Change: Internal version number to 1.503

    BMR Insurgency

    Hot fix once again for v1.50. Internal version is now 1.502 Hopefully this will be the last edit for 1.50 and next update should be 1.51 which may not be anytime soon. 10/20/2019 Minor Hot fix for v1_50 Fixed: Progression Restoration race condition on dedicated server. Fixed: Progression Restoration on Headless client no longer requires headless clients to Join in progress. Fixed: Delivery Objective Error "waitUntil returned nil. True or false expected". Defaults values added to getvariable. Caused by previous Arma 3 engine update. Fixed: Opfor player's mission would not end if Blufor player count fell below "Playable Opfor" lobby parameter limits. Fixed: Classname typo on Opposing Army IFA3 Wehrmacht playable Bluefor slot's default uniform in Green versions. Fixed: Capture and hold timer could cease prematurely if server has high fps typically when headless clients present. Change: Mine field map markers created by server when player places a mine. Seems to not have affect on Dedicated server.. Change: Internal version number to 1.502

    Sorry kdjac, will not do. There are enough armaments to deal with any situation in existing UAVs. One of the UAVs even has an anti air missile in pilot seat/control. I've been able to take air out with the dagrs as well. Ive had numerous requests to add this feature in the non UAV fixed wings and helis too. In this case also existing non UAV Air assets have enough variation to cover all situations. Unexploded ordinance/bomblets scatered all across the map would be a nightmare. Creating such a UI in arma is also a nightmare which in my case would require insane effort to make compliance with all supported mod types and weapon pylons. There are a few third party public scripts offered in the forums that you are free to add to the mission if you like. Thanks for playing. Always good to hear positive feedback from long time Arma players.

Fixed: No Respawn mode would respawn player at base if revive timer expired. Now BIS spectate is initialized. Fixed: Potential undefined variable error of deprecated variable Jig_Y_Menu. 2 mission files along with readme/notes.txt updated. Mission pack updated on first page dropbox link. Github Altis build updated. File differences repository update will follow soon.

    Just a heads up, We are in the final testing phase of v1.50 and the mission pack should be out in maybe 2 to 3 days hopefully. It will include the new Livonia/Epoch version and new Rosche, Anizay and G.O.S. Song Bin Tanh versions. GM version did not make it into the update. After this update gets pushed I'll be releasing and new TDM Dog Fighter mission project I've been working on on the side In a separate release if anybody is interested. Good to hear Normal Norm, love your channel and the vids.

    So I assume its working then? I've seen no problems with saving since v1.49. Good edit of default option/behavior. My glow friend approves?

    BMR Insurgency

    Hello Genneo, this mission only supports saving gridzone marker status and nothing else between mission restarts. By default this is disabled . To enable set lobby parameter option 38. Enable Progression Saving and Restoration? options = No, clear progression if any is saved, Yes, save mission progression and restore if any is saved, Yes, save mission progression and clear progression if any is saved The options in lobby will not stat saving until one objective has been completed (succeeded or failed). Also manual save can be done at any time from briefing admin menu.

    No problem victor87. Linux dedicated server should not be a factor in this. If you could send me the dedicated server rpt with Debug lobby option disabled and "define _debug true" in scripts\ghst_PutinBuild.sqf when this problem occurs then I might be able to trace the problem.

    Definitely will be making this version. At this point its to early to start though. We need updates first. 100x100 map grid is missing. Tanks fall through the ground Aircraft not yet released and several other bugs. Vehicle wise there are 10x more locked/private scope vehicles available which are incomplete then there are unlocked/public scope. There are some private scope infantry which might be nice to have as well. All this will make mission makers job easier and not require some many do overs, fixes and amendments so I am not rushing this one.

    Thanks Victor, its good to hear you guys are still enjoying it. For the corpse clean up on server you can increase this delay and change this to 180 for three minute delay for example https://github.com/Jigsor/BMR_Insurgency.Altis/blob/5ac94121c35f8f731f6bae6f5b166586e1a812d2/INSfncs/server/server_fncs.sqf#L12 and there is some redundancy to corpse clean up here which will need to be increased aswell to 3*60 for 3 minute delay. https://github.com/Jigsor/BMR_Insurgency.Altis/blob/5ac94121c35f8f731f6bae6f5b166586e1a812d2/scripts/repetitive_cleanup.sqf#L21 For units created by headless client change here https://github.com/Jigsor/BMR_Insurgency.Altis/blob/5ac94121c35f8f731f6bae6f5b166586e1a812d2/INSfncs/hc/headless_client_fncs.sqf#L12 For intel. In v1.49 all intel related issues have been resolved. I've not seen any issues in this regard in this version. The intel location markers should be easy to spot with lobby settings "Show Intel Location Markers?" set to yes which is default. If you local host and turn on Debug in lobby then you should see a message when intel begins spawning and also when it completes spawning. debugging for intel is not switched on with debug lobby option. You must temporarily change this script here. https://github.com/Jigsor/BMR_Insurgency.Altis/blob/5ac94121c35f8f731f6bae6f5b166586e1a812d2/scripts/ghst_PutinBuildIntel.sqf#L48 It will log intel positions and problem positions if it fails. Increasing intel ratio can help produce any problems faster so problem area/marker can be adjusted. Maybe a structure over water or structure with interior positions but no entrances exist for example needs to be black listed in INS_definitions.sqf for that particular terrain. I believe I have already found these structures which need to be blacklisted and have done so for all supported terrains. Some thing to keep in mind if you edit and move or create additional grid zone markers. These markers which are used to spawn intel, ammo cache, are visible and used to and trigger mission ending are listed in variable all_eos_mkrs per terrain in INS_definitions.sqf. This has already been done in v1.49 and should be good in official release. You should be using the drop box release and not building with github because github mission differences is still not updated to 1.49. Only Altis vanilla is up to date on github atm. Debug lobby option should not be enabled in dedicated server environment. Many things could break. Its currently only designed for testing in local hosted environment. If this does not help then in private message you could send me your locally hosted rpt with edit #define _debug true in ghst_PutinBuildIntel.sqf and maybe dedicated server rpt with #define _debug false rpt as well. Are you using any sort of command black listing on your server?

    @TheOneBender, Ah, I see you found the problem.. hehe, user error or misunderstanding. I was just on my dedi trying to reproduce the error as you updated/changed your message and could not reproduce. I was hoping the hint and chat message was enough of a clue for players. Thanks for the kind words and I'm really glad you enjoy it. Welcome to the forums and if you have any other issues i will try to help the best I can.

    The Heli Crew Helmets on recruited AI is intended and double as Gas Masks. This way if recruited AI inadvertantly wonder into vanilla yellow hand grenade or yellow ugl smoke they will not die. If you turn off poison gas option in lobby then recruits will not have gas masks. Thanks for pointing out the spelling error. I've fired my secretary. I didn't feel a marker on USS Freedom was necessary as the Freedom's outline can be found on the map and can also be discovered through flag pole teleport options. Due to extra code and complications required to global hide it at mission start then player unhide it depending on side and depending if the freedom even exist on the map (on some map versions there is no sea and no carrier). I suppose I will try to create the marker and additional required code on next version which could be helpful and more obvious to new players. Access to admin tools panel is restricted to local server host player or logged in admins on dedicated only and not voted admins by design. This is to avoid trolling and abuse of tools by pubies / non trusted admin.

    Hello AWACS_Ghost_Eye and welcome to the forums. Yes, Rosche terrain is a good candidate for future port. This is planned as well as a Community Factions Project version for next BMR Insurgency release. I can't say when this will happen just yet as I am currently working on a completely new a different mission project which is mostly finished now.

    BMR Insurgency

    Mission pack updated once again with some very minor changes. Moved objects at base in Lingor versions for changes in Lingor v3.9.5 terrain. Fixes some more spelling errors in Admin Menu. Updated release notes. As these changes are very minor and the code base is the same as previous 1.49 release, the version number stays the same.
  23. Jigsor

    BMR Insurgency

    Thank you. By default there are no restrictions. You are probably playing an edited version. This is where restrictions for pilots is set. To make restrictions add playable unit type class names.

    I think I understand the question. Yes it is possible to change all text to Spanish. This must be done manually. The most commonly used text already supports Spanish translation in the stringtable.xml such as most scroll actions, objective descriptions and G.U.I. Lobby options have not been translated and probably a few other things such as some notifications. Feel free to translate/edit the mission as you need.
  25. Icebreaker, Thank you for the tremendous work you have done on the update. Its the best jungle map hands down! BMR Insurgency now supports the new Lingor update and Dingor mission version should be good to go hopefully if and when terrain gets updated. Mission pack info and download link
