  1. Nope. Just have the IR laser sitting somewhere as in a laser defense system.
  2. I want to use a laser pointer for a visual effect, how do I set to be on/off based on triggers? I've found the other posts about turning streetlights on or off, but it's not quite the same. if I use: object setHit [part, damage, useEffects] What's the part for the object "IR Laser Pointer"?
  3. Thanks... I should have been more explicit. By humanoid.. I meant human... just a giant person
  4. How hard would it be to make a giant humanoid figure? Would it just be as simple as taking a current model and scaling? Would the current animations still work? Nothing too extravagant, maybe the equivalent of 8-9ft tall.

    Bump... would also like to set up a similar scenario as per option 2...
  7. hooF!@#nrah. it works. When the appropriate trigger is tripped, dofollow gets them all moving again and shenanigans ensue. thanks for your help
  8. OK.. this is driving me nuts. I've tried dostop, disableAI "move", forcespeed, none work. Where should the command go? In: Comoposition init? Object init? On the a hold waypoint referencing the group? oh, but wait.. that doesn't work, it generates an error "type group, object expected". How the F do you reference an entire group then? Read the wiki.. commands don't work.
  9. Thanks David Where does this code go?
  10. How do I address the entire group? Every command I'm trying (forcespeed, enablesimulation etc) keeps giving me the error "Type group, object expected" when testing the scenario. Where is this command supposed to go? Object init? Composition init? In other words, how do I reference the entire group?
  11. I'm attempting to set up an ambush in an urban environment and don't want the group to be standing in any the usual formations as they arrange themselves outside the building or in the next compound. In the editor, I need the units to remain in the location they've been placed, not return to formation. I've tried using dostop this and thislist on the group to get them to remain in the location I've dragged them, but they just ignore any commands and stroll back to formation. How do I get them to stick? domove doesn't seem to work... unless I'm getting the syntax wrong.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    I can load without any of the @ACE mods. As soon as I add @ACE, the problem returns. It appears to be automatically ending the mission. If I create a local server and attempt to play a Takistan mission (I know it's not an ACE mission, but it plays with CBA), on entering the game, it immediately gives me the "you failed the mission" summary message and the time is 0mins. Picking any ACE mission gives the same result, but i'm playing the test ones, so there's no actual mission to fail therefore no "failed" message. If i join my friend's server, it tells me the mission time was the exact time he's had his mission running for, in this case 2hrs 33min, but he's still in the game.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    Thanks for the reply. I've tried using Six and just the exe, doesn't matter which way I fire it up. The servers have exactly the same number of mods loaded and same versions (the admin is a friend, we're on teamspeak trying to work through this). The error happens even when I create my own server. I'll try bringing each of the ACE mods in, one-by-one. I was under the impression that they were all required to function.

    ACE for OA 1.13

    Attempting to load up ACE for the first time. Every time I enter a game, I immediately get kicked back to the screen as if i'd just been killed. It displays the list of players, deaths, vehicle count etc as if the "I" key was pressed in game. Even with Domination, it shows the long zoom into my character and then boots me. comman line being used is: "%_STEAMPATH%\steam.exe" -applaunch 33930 "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;ca;@ACE;@ACEX;@acex_usnavy;@CBA;@CBA_OA;@CBA_A2". Removing the ACE mods loads fine, I can get into games. I've tried updating with both Six and Armarize with no joy. Any ideas?
