  1. Thanks a lot, man. Just thought, maybe a long term solution for this issue might be in your interest. Who knows, if we are lucky, maybe the Revive system will, someday, finally, be compatible with AI team mates too. The ragdoll workaround with old Physx and animated falls is certainly a tenable compromise, but it just isn't the full thing. I have the impression that many hits, especially by explosives, won't feel as forceful (though I experienced AI flying 50m from an RGO with it once) and a hit unit often won't fall over in the proper direction. This is just what I noticed when playing around with it for a few minutes on my own, I will test the compatibility with the MP Revive later and share the results, once my mate is online and available. UPDATE: Tested, Coop with BI Revive works fine as long as tpw_fall_ragdoll is set to "1". :) Thanks a lot.
  2. Hey TPW, love your mods, especially the "Fall" module of the pack - I always have it active, since it is so much more immersive. Just finished the whole East Wind campaign with it doing its magic - amazing. However, I felt like jumping over to Tanoa with a friend of mine trying the new coop campaign and I noticed some issues that might be related to the "Fall" module when it is active alongside the new revive system introduced and implemented by BI. In detail, a player that has been hit and will fall from the bullet hit also gets incapacitated by the revive system - but he won't stay that way, because your fall module will let him regain control and start to get on his feet again, only to then die instantly without other players being able to revive him. Can you or somebody confirm this? Also, when turning the tpw_fall_player setting in the userconfig hpp to "0", players will actually still get knocked over by bullets, at least thats what I noticed in test runs in the editor. Now I know your mod is strictly focused on SP gameplay and not intended to work with revive systems and that stuff, but since it is an official BI system, and the new campaign is meant to be played in coop, I thought I'd give it a try and ask for a solution to this, or at least clarification. Thanks again for your modset, keep up the good work.
  3. So, with the APEX release imminent - any word on an updated installation of this? Honestly I need this. ArmA just looks too dull by default if you got used to Real Light once.
  4. Any updates on this? I have to agree with pawelkpl, even after hours of playing around with the buildt in sliders and even the ReColor Addon, I was not able to find a setup that was suitable for RealLight+Any Map+Any Time of Day. This is rather unfortunate. Since Tanoa is out on DevBranch, could a new version of Real Light be configured now? Even with the latest improvements to the ArmA 3 Lighting Engine, ReShade does offer quite an improvement and I really can't play without it anymore to be honest.
  5. :) This was actually the first way I tried it, and yes, first of all I installed the Python plugin. But since it seemed "too simple" and also did absolutely nothing, I thought it couldn't possibly be the solution. The script in the python plugion menu is there, but when I edit the mission.sqm with N++ and try to run the .py from the menu, nothing at all happens. I guess I have to try again. But thanks for the clarification.
  6. This thread is great. Now that CUP is in a pretty far stage, I'm looking forward to convert some old A2 missions. However, bardosy, could you further elaborate how to run your python script in Notepad so that it replaces the lines in the mission.sqm? I tried to run it via Notepad++ > loaded the "A2toCUP.py" > F5 (Run) > C:\Python27\python.exe $(FULL_CURRENT_PATH) > Save and executed the saved action on the mission.sqm but it had no effect. This is my first attempt at doing such in N++ and tbh the instructions to running python on Notepad++ that one can find on the Internet are as numerous as they are confusing.
  7. Now I have, thanks for the hint and the link. I have no idea how to run a python script in N++ yet, but I hope I'll figure it out somehow.
  8. This project is simply amazing and has come quite a long way already. Last time I checked you guys had just released the USMC, now we are nearly at 100% ArmA 2 CO content plus all those amazing additions and features like FFV implementation and the British MRAPs. Considering how far this has come, are there still plans for a conversion tool for ArmA 2 missions that replace old classnames with the CUP version?

    ACE for OA 1.13

    It appears to me that some patch destroyed some more stuff than the wounding system with AI (which was never really useful since AI gave no response on being injured/knocked out and you basically weren't able to lead your squad as you are supposed to, but then again, ACE never supported friendly AI in the first place unfortunatly). I don't know if that is just me - but since recently I noticed that the M15 mine became useless, not even doing any damage to tanks even when laid in pairs and only slightly scratching an APCs left track (its always the left one) when driving directly over it. But the crew gets knocked out by indirect damage almost all the time. Which leads me to another annoying state / feature? of ACE that I never really found a fix for. On 99% of the occasions I drive in something like a Bradley or Stryker and it gets hit by an SPG-9 or RPG - the vehicle almost takes zero damage, but all my crewmen, me and 50% of the men in cargo get killed or knocked out immediatly. This makes driving vehicles a deathtrap, especially since the AI can for some reason spamfire precise SPGs like its a laser guided rapid fire weapon.
  10. Hello comunity, Another day, another question. I tried nearly everything I can do with this command: "SetFriend" - I don't get any further on my own, so I had to ask. I have a BLUFOR unit, from which I am the leader. I have an OPFOR unit. I have civilians around. From mission start, all should be friends. This is part of my INIT sleep1; WEST setFriend [EAST, 1]; EAST setFriend [WEST, 1]; CIVILIAN setFriend [EAST, 1]; EAST setFriend [CIVILIAN, 1]; That works. Now at a specific time, I want the OPFOR unit to rampage and kill everything and everyone, including civilians. I run this script via trigger(on activation: _nul = execVM "ENEMY.sqf"): WEST setFriend [EAST, 0]; EAST setFriend [WEST, 0]; CIVILIAN setFriend [EAST, 0]; EAST setFriend [CIVILIAN, 0]; I don't care if they also shoot civilian objects. I appreciate it more. But this is what happens: On that trigger, everybody will shout around, take cover, hit the dirt, raise thier guns, spot enemys (they are also tagged as enemys, I can give orders to target etc) and - do NOTHING else. They don't attack. Don't shoot. Just behave like in combat and stare at each other, standing literatly nose to nose or better, flash hider to flash hider. Thats it. In 2/10 test runs one of them "accidentialy" fires a few shots. No more than that. I can dance around in front of them and nothing will happen. Its like they are hostile again, but the AI intelligence/skill/spotting range was just set to minus 1Mio and thier guns are all jammed. What is wrong here? Is there a better way (I hope there is) to accomplish that?

    Warlords

    That is because (last time I checked) the Warlords Spawn Module (or at least the Response Team Module) will search for groups that are defined for a faction, and the independent guerillas have no groups defined by default. However, I am using the faction as local garrisons, because luckily Axyl/Axek has created a small addon that will bring those groups and factions back. Find it HERE. Anyway, same topic, playing an independent faction is still impossible. Getting to play as AAF for example was a little bit trickier, for that I had to port the entire IND_F faction to Blufor (by creating an addon) myself.

    Warlords

    Very nice, thanks a lot, the Scenario just became a lot more versatile, and thanks especially for adding some features that I were suggesting.

    Warlords

    @Aztec: I can totally feel your pain, fatigue ist one of the most annoying features of ArmA. To tackle this, create a custom Warlords mission or use a custom addon (I'm using parts of Dj Otacons Ultimate Soldier mod to "fix" this issue) that utilizes the "enable fatigue" command. For example if you want to disable fatigue for players + player groups use: player enableFatigue false; { _x enableFatigue false; } forEach (units group player);

    Warlords

    I absolutely love this mission. Finally a reason to play ArmA 3 again. But is it possible to edit the factions and replace them with custom ones? For example lets say I want to create a custom Warlords mission based on your sample - but on Isla Duala with custom GUER militia being your "Default"-faction. I found the entrys for OPFOR and BLUFOR units that can be spawned/requested but I couldn't figure out how the Defaults (GUER) are being deployed apart from the few vehicles patroling around that are on the map from the start. So I don't quite get how the AAF soldiers are spawned and how I might be able to change them to another green faction. Any Intel on that?
  15. /////////////////////////////////EDIT///////////////////////////////// Obsolete. Weird error that was mod related. Remove thread if needed. My apologies. /////////////////////////////////EDIT/////////////////////////////////
  16. I was playing around in the editor for a while and couldn't really get it working. Does that mean it will only work when running the mission on a server (though I tried that) AND when playing with other players? I must admit when I first saw it I was hoping for the good old First Aid Module to make a return but now that this isn't the case, does that mean the revive function will only work for players and not AI? Because during my test runs, it didn't work with the AI. Which is very unfortunate.
  17. Hey Savage, sorry to hear that, seems like more and more of the "old" Devs are leaving since ArmA 3 isn't really what most had hoped for and BI shifted their focus away from working with the community devs. As for ArmA 3, I have the same trouble warming up with it though I spent a lot of time on it, I always return to A2 for all the modern, not 2035style stuff. As long as that stuff doesn't make it into the game, it just isn't the full experience. Unfortunatly though, when following .kjus struggle for some official support on his AiA project, BI seems to have little interest in making that happen. I wish you success for whatever your doing next, may it be gaming related or not and may thank you for your extraordinary work on the UNSUNG mod. Now, Regarding the UNSUNG mod for ArmA 2. I don't know if there are still people out there playing it but I recently digged up some SP/COOP missions I created a while ago. I thought I might as well share them. They feature full briefings and some generated Voice Acting, as well as the UNSUNG radio support system. I've only played/tested them a few times in SP. If someone is interested, click HERE for the dropbox link.
  18. Icebreakr, you continue to amaze me. I loved this map in A2, love it in A3 and am looking forward to more of your, as usual, BI-Quality professional stuff. Me and my friends already enjoyed numerous matches on Duala in A3, its just a blast with the right assets. I might suggest though that you release the Units as a seperate mod. The AKs and PKMs from dozents of mods are already stockpiling in my Armory :P Anyway, great work on these, looking forward to fitting vehicles maybe.
  19. That sounds great! I'll try it asap. I thought about creating an IFA3 version myself (I did a bunch of DUWS conversions for different scenarios already for personal use) but had trouble with the zone prefabs. Anyway, a question on the DUWS system in general: Is there a way to prevent Zones from being generated outside the maps borders/at the border? Very often the script will search for and find "flat areas" to place enemy zones outside the original map borders. On Takistan for example. Can I define the map borders somehow or alter a script so that there are no zones being spawned there? Its really annoying if that happens. Most maps don't have a nice looking transition at the borders and I try to stay away from these.
  20. I am using the latest version available on SIX. Aww, such a shame. It fits perfectly for my modified DUWS against the IS. Guess I'll have to look for other middle eastern maps then.
  21. O.O amazing Please release them as predefined units to place in the editor!
  22. Hey, I know this mod is no longer officially supported by .kju, but I just wanted to ask for a qualified statement on a problem I encountered. I experienced several CTDs while using the map "Faysh Khabur" in combination with AiA TP that seem to be related to the map itself. You can reproduce it by driving on the road leading north on the east side of the river. Is this just something I have to deal with (that would be unfortunate as it would make the map useless in A3) or is there something I can do about it?
  23. Hey Teryaki, first of all thank you for all the amazing stuff you produced there that made me spend hours in the VA just experimenting with awesome gear combination. But I had an idea. You supplied us with some great Special Forces accessories. Unfortunatly, for Arma 3, there are very few good special forces mods that are doing it right. You created all the parts needed for this. How about you put some uniforms, vests, headgear and tactical sets together and create SF units with that gear, that you can place in the Editor? For me at least that would be a big help.
  24. Hey Drongo69, I really enjoy this awesome mod, it helps coordinating the AI a lot. But I wondered if it would be possible for you to add an option that lets the player decide wether he wants to use the Icons or the Text version. I personally found the text version to be more appealing and easier to use, thats why I still use an old build, but I would love to enjoy the new features as well, just without the icons.
  25. Yesss. I'm excited! Hopefully when this is released RobJ will create a scenario for it and I can fly my Huey on random missions over the jungle :D Or maybe I'll do one. Will you start from scratch again or port the old stuff? You know that was one thing the old Unsung lacked somehow. Flying on mission is only so much fun with your render distance set to 500 :P
