  1. Hi, Been trying to find something similar to this so I could edit in a way it could work. Basically what I am after is a script which on a action it will teleport the user to a location via map click and insert them via a static parachute. Any help would be great! Thanks

    Static drop on map click

    So what I am doing is a WW2 mission and for scenario flow I want the players who die and respawn be able to go to for example a flag pole with an addAction option to drop into combat via a static parachute instead of me having to go into zeus and teleport them (I mean they could drive to the frontline but people are lazy). I would like to keep things semi-immersive and not have a HALO jump into combat as the HALO jump to my knowledge wasnt a method of delivering troops to the frontline/behind enemy lines in the 1940s. Sorry if I didnt explain myself clearly enough!
  3. Hey people I am doing a mission this Friday 03/05/19 1900BST!

    Static drop on map click

    Because a HALO jump and a static drop are not the same thing!

    From what I see the Halo jump scripts use the function and I dont know if I would be able to edit in a way for it to work but I should give it a try really.
  6. Hey guys, I rent a dedicated server from a company for me and my friends to play Co-Op/PvP missions on using mods. I am getting an issue with the server currently as I am getting the following error "Server cant transmit all data: some mods might be missing or their signatures can not be recognised" . Things I have tried: - Loading mods 1 by 1 to see if any of them are broken/outdated - Checked keys folder for any missing keys in relation to their mods - Checked mod line to see if there is any typos It seems to me that if I have a set number of mods it works but if I go over that number it seems to break the server and as far as I am aware my service provider is not imposing any restrictions on how many mods I can use (if its even possible). Could really do with some help with this one guys as I have been at it now for over a week its driving me insane! Thanks in advanced
  7. Hi all, Started designing a mission this morning and been at this issue for about two hours now. I have tried endless ways to try make these fire and also done endless searching to no avail. I am using the BM-21 Grads from the CUP mod and using this script on a trigger to activate the grads to fire at a specific target upon blufor being present in the trigger. _ammo = getArtilleryAmmo [bm1] select 0; _tgt = getMarkerPos "target1"; bm1 doArtilleryFire[_tgt,_ammo,10]; It is not working and is driving me insane. Can anyone help? Thanks
  8. @Grumpy Old Man I checked if it would fire with other artillery and it would fire using this script. Still no luck on the grad. Any ideas?
  9. I tried a few different distances from the GRAD nothing. Haven’t tried with other artillary yet will check soon.
  10. Hey there, Der Server a small community of friends are looking to expand our current roster of eight. We come from around the globe EU, US, and CN. With this being said our missions run around a time to suit a majority. We are a mature group but also all get along really well and can have some good banter. The community plays with an relaxed approach towards playing “realism missions” and being part of the “realism community”. We don’t expect you to call higher ranking members sir, ma’am, do rigorous training courses, or know everything out of a tactical handbook. Instead we use the available mods to develop missions which would be played in a fun manner whilst also trying to tactically play out the mission. Each week the mission changes unless it’s a campaign so there’s never any set faction or playstyle we would be playing for weeks on end it helps to keep things fresh! TL:DR: if you like to play realism missions but don’t want to have to go through the hassle of training etc with a community then this is the place for you! There are some slight rules that what we adhere to and would like future members to adhere to:- -Speak fluent English with a working microphone and headset -17 years + -Ability to follow orders from others (in-game command structure system) -Be respectful and mindful of others We have recently made a switch to discord to arrange missions and will be used as a hub for the community ongoing however we still use teamspeak for voice comms. If you are interested join and drop me a message I’m usually always available! Thanks and I hope to see you around!
  11. Thanks belbo will keep that in mind for when I create future missions!
  12. Hi all, I am semi-experienced with creating missions and theres one thing thats really bugging me. How do I move the slot positions in the lobby when you join? For example: I have four sections a command element and a pilot slot and currently they go in this order and I would rather the command slots be at the top of the screen followed by the section slots and then the pilot slot. I have been told that I need to move them round in the mission.sqm then make sure the class items go in sequence or it would break the mission. However I tried this and it just ended up duplicating slots which is not what I want. Any help would be greatly appriciated. Thanks!
  13. Thanks to both it got me what I wanted! Grimes thats what I wanted in the first place! haha...
  14. Hi guys newbie to coding here :confused: Just playing around trying to teach myself a few things and reading materials and what not and decided I would try to make a vehicle spawner with a simple addAction command on a AI unit. I have noticed when I click on the action to spawn in my vehicle it spawns it however say I wanted to spawn another one it would spawn it next to the previous vehicle I spawned. Essentially what I am trying to find out is how to stop say another vehicle spawning if one is already on the spawn point so when its moved another one can be spawned in the same position without being spawned next to it... Thanks in advanced for your help! Code so far:
  15. Hello :) I was wondering where yall coders learnt how to script using ArmA 2 GUI. I have played around with the mission editor and made VERY basic missions using that. However I know that the editor offers only a FRACTION of what you can do with ArmA when it comes to making missions. I have no idea how to write in C++ and wouldnt mind learning but I need to be pointed in the right direction IE by using resources you used when learning! I also understand its well enough knowing how to write in code but you also need to know how to write specifically for ArmA? So please if you HAVE anything which would help me get kick started it would be GREATLY appreciated as I have been playing this game from day one and consider myself a vet and I think its time I start producing something :) Thanks!

    ArmA 2 Editing Resources

    I want to make missions using scripts! :) I just thought GUI was the right term for the ArmA language branch of the code language. Edit: Thanks for the resources guys they look great cant wait to get into them!
  19. Hi, I want to install steam on my windows 2008 server. However im running into all kinds of problems and I am just wondering anyone who has successfully installed steam on a windows 2008 server could help me out. I first started out by downloading the client and running that however when I tried to run the program I was given the error message: So after some lengthy time browsing the internet I found a solution to this problem if I went into the steam folder located in the c/ and launched the steamtmp it would start to update success right? No. When the update reached 100% I received this error: Searched the internet again no viable fix for this error I could find so im hoping someone knows something or has encountered this problem and managed to fix it as im sure a lot of people are using Terox method of making a dedicated server using steam and someone must have come across this problem. Thanks.
  20. Welcome, and would like to say thank you for taking your time into reading this post. Imperious a community formed by a group of friends have come together to make a community for the ArmA games. We would like to announce the we are ready and capable of taking on new recruits for our realism unit within the community. Anyone is welcome to come and join us there is no specific requirements other than to have a working microphone and teamspeak to join the community and then join its realism unit. Please note if you are under 16 your trial period may be longer to determine your maturity. Oh and obviously ArmA 3 will be required. Just a little bit about Imperious. Imperious was set up a few months back within a small tight knit group of friends and wasnt really concerned with becoming a larger community at the time. We set the community up on the foundations of equality, fairness, and maturity. What I mean by this is that everybody is an equal and nobody should be treat different depending on community rank. Coming back to the realism unit just to share a bit more information. We currently only consist of an infantry core but will later expand into an armored core and air core division when we have the personal and someone with experience and skills to lead such divisions. We will hold training at least once every one to two weeks with operations within the same time frame. We are generally a relaxed laid back community however when it comes to the realism unit we take this more serious. If your interested or seeking more information then head onto our website or even join teamspeak which I will list below TS3: 85.236.100.188:13177 Website: http://imperiouscommunity.enjin.com/
  21. Thanks Hulk that solved my problem! However now I am getting ANOTHER error >.> jesus this really does not want to work with me. I now am getting the createDXGIfactory1 error when trying to launch the game obviously changing the target line to a server mode before. I have tried updating the system that has gave me nothing. Help!
  22. Terox managed to fix it using what you have told me. However now Im running into another problem. When trying to run arma on the server it gives me an error telling me that the d3d11.dll file is missing. No idea what to do tried googling the answer but its mainly all for suggested clients and not servers. If you have any information let me know.
  23. And how would I do this? I am not familiar with Windows server 2008 port forwarding. If you could tell me how to that would be great. Thanks.

    User mission requests!

    Hi, Im posting this thread for anyone out there who knows where I could get my hands on a very basic life mission. It doesnt have to be anything fancy it just needs to work. The reason I ask is because I want to see how one works and then from this using as reference make my own from scratch and obviously without reference it will be difficult. Im not looking to "steal" a mission or take anyones mission I just want something to use as a reference in my work to get me started. So yeah if anyone knows of a download link or something similar let me know. Thanks. *NOTE* Just realized I have made this thread in the wrong area. Sorry about that if a forum moderator would be kind enough to move it I would be grateful. Thanks again.
  25. Hey guys, So I have bought PMC and BAF from gamersgate.co.uk where I can download them to my pc as a digital copy. However when I fully download them and when the files extract themselves after that before even starting an instillation I get the error described below. Its extreamly annoying and I hope someone can resolve my problem ASAP. Thanks. Note*My antivirus is BitDefender. Error message Runtime Error! Program: C:\Users\Sams pc\AppData\Local\Temp\BAF\setup.exe This application has requested the runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for more information.
