  1. If I may share my College opinion, he is most likely trying to force you to make a campaign and release it so as for everyone to stop complaining. Naturally speaking even if you do that you will be proven to be a liar. So the guy will get his campaign and you will be in some sort of social trouble. So either he just wants you to make a campaign without being mentally able to take the second part in consideration or he wants to have a two in one scenario. As for solving the whole thing I can think of a solution that will however mean spending time for this guy and showing a character that is ehm debatable? or you can simply ignore them all and blame them for not trusting you but a kinda complete stranger. Most times the best solution. Otherwise there might be a domino of destruction. College life...
  2. Well not even the simple MOVE waypoint works at times.. Sadly BI has yet to fix basic issues. And I doubt they will ever be fixed. I mean I use simple move waypoints for vehicles and they get stuck going back and forth or they just stop moving for no reason. That is when they are not on roads but on valleys with no trees whatsoever. Or they work nicely but when you host a server they don't. Really irritating : \ Due to that I would have stopped creating Arma missions if it wasn't for the testing groups and whoever downloads our missions having fun and all.

    Tasks Order Assigment

    Thanks and yep it is one of my favorite scripts. Especially because when playing not even the editor can know where the hostile units are exactly

    Tasks Order Assigment

    As for triggers sometimes placing another trigger and writing by hand while NOT copy pasting the same condition makes the new trigger work. As for the CQB script we got a really cool one. If you know how to un-pbo a mission just download the latest mission of the Campaign indicated in my signature. It is in the Scripts folder, the House Patrol one.
  5. Maybe you can use an animation where the AI walks? Because as stated above it is true that the AI goes crazy when walking on objects. By crazy I mean let's try jumping off a cliff or a rooftop. 30 meters? Pfff ... piece of cake. P.S. It might sound shocking but yes ... they died in both cases.

    GF Building Replacement Script - Mod

    Although to be honest I cannot see how editors will use the above script the WIP Script you mentioned will be really nice if a winter add-on free vanilla map was made available Hmm there must be an editing idea that I have missed..

    Mission Objectives

    The condition can be a: NameOfPlayer distance nameOfRadio < 5; for the message there are many ways like simple hint or sideChat or play a sound.

    GF Auto Loot Road Crash Script - Mod

    Well if this script production continues all left for the editors will be to create the tasks and the briefings. The mission environment will be ready 👍

    HAFM NAVY (Ships) - v2.0

    Hmm ... maybe for as long as there is a chopper with players on board near the ship. If there is no pilot in the chopper there will be no chance of the chopper taking off. Or with an engine on condition too. Logically speaking who lets a chopper with an engine on while the ship travels? Chances for a ship being hit right when the chopper is with a crew and an engine on might be next to zero but yeah your argument has got a basis.

    Tasks Order Assigment

    If needed the task script we use is mp and sp supported and you can find it here: My post is post number 3.

    Tasks Order Assigment

    Have you named the tasks differently? First thing that comes to mind is that two tasks have the same name. If not, try de-syncing and re-syncing everything.

    Video Formats Implementation

    Well until something changes I will have the .ogv videos in place while keeping the high quality ones waiting. Although I doubt anything will change soon if it is about money too. BI developers seem to be caught up with building their new engine. It should take months or years and if a new game does not come out BI might have an income issue.
  16. So in my WIP campaign there are videos I use in a variety of places. For those of you who do not know only .ogv formats are permitted in Arma. When it comes to showing videos on in-game screens such as tvs there is no problem but when it comes to showing videos as intros the quality is not good. It is watchable but not good. So as far as I can understand the reason why only .ogv formats are used is due to size? but maybe that should be up to the editor. If his mission is big in size or not. So why not let mp4 video formats be used? Much better quality and the format people tend to use for videos.

    ASR AI 3

    While in ASR all works awesomelly I would like to ask, Does the presence or absence of scopes on weapons affect the AI accuracy? Because one could argue that AI armed with non scoped Apex AK-47s were too accurate although quite far.

    Video Formats Implementation

    Did not know that to be honest. Seeing free software like AVC offer multiple video formats I never thought there would be extra fees. Hmm.. wonder what other companies use for their high quality videos.

    AUSTAL HSSV Mod

    Well maybe you can ask other Ship add-on developers how they made their ships work. Cooperation can be very profitable at times.
  20. JohnKalo

    AUSTAL HSSV Mod

    This looks like a really nice addition to Arma already. Since you will continue working on it for months it should turn out to be great. I can already think of many mission implementations if all ship features work nicely

    VCOM vs ASR

    Have not tested VCOM but ASR I use in all missions. The AI is really good and I especially like how groups work together so as to defeat us players. The way they flank and all. Adrenaline levels go high when you cannot know from where the AI will attack. Before ASR it was a simple head on attack. Nothing much to that. Oh and how they use smoke and grenades too. EDIT: I use ASR in MP primarily.
  22. Defying the Odds Brought to you by HelicopterEnthusiast and zigTtzag(zTt) After testing a mission a few months back zTt was like why not create a campaign? I refused saying it was too hard. We can make more missions in the same amount of time. A few weeks back however the campaign started being constructed! Now the campaign being constructed was revealed to our website subscribers alone but the download links and such will be available to all! Story: In Afghanistan there was a leader called Dahid Kazat. Kazat was a patriot. He loved his country and his people. He wanted his country to prosper by taking advantage of the oil reserves located at Lythium. It was a clever idea and it would surely result in his country prospering and his people forgetting about the immense difficulties they face due to being poor. There was an issue however. Oil attracts the Strong Countries of the world. Especially when in 2035 oil reserves get more and more scarce. Because of the above, NATO decided that Kazat had not what it takes to deal with the power that oil reserves would provide him. Due to that NATO demanded all oil reserves from Kazat while providing no help to the people of Afghanistan. Kazat did not agree! They tried to bribe him, they threatened his family and yet he said no. So NATO found a nice way to get rid of Kazat. They chose to fund rebel organization Al Shilak. They gave them weapons, ammunition and all needed in order to bring down Kazat and they succeeded. Kazat was killed and propaganda made the people of Afghanistan to agree about the homicide. Yet again an issue arose. The people of Afghanistan did not only agree with the murder. They also agreed with whatever Al Shilak supports. That is that NATO is to blame for everything. That now that Al Shilak controls the country they should be the ones dealing with the oil reserves. That the people of Afghanistan should rebel! From that point on, Lythium has turned into a battlefield. NATO was unable to deal with the locals and after many casualties they lost control of Lythium and they are now dealing with a force that wants to expand Afghanistan borders! Here is when you guys arrive. Although no country offered to help in fear of casualties, Greece is sending their best Green Berets force! Four men from Greece Special Forces have been dispatched to Lythium to help NATO regain control. NATO agreed to support them. If they commenced all too dangerous operations… Greece agreed. Why? Nobody knows if anybody knows. Units: Task Force: Blue Lighting Team Leader – Chiefly Alexandros Petraklos He has been through everything! Graduating from multiple Military Academies and becoming an expert in a variety of sectors was a torment. Actually it was not. Petraklos was born for such operations. What tormented him was the bureaucracy and the needed encounters with officialdom in order to become a Green Berets Team Leader. Marksman – Sergeant Ioannis Kalinos A graduate from the Basic Sniper Training for Special Operations Academy. The time needed to read that equals with the time Kalinos needs for 3 headshots at a 1,5 km distance! That is exactly why the Green Berets recruited him. Disregarding his tension to remain silent, a Blue Lightning slot is surely his. Explosive Specialist – Sergeant Konstantinos Koromilas His graduation certificate comes from the Evelpidon Military Academy. Apart from that, he does not talk much. All we know is that he likes explosives and whatever causes mayhem. Welcome aboard Koromila! You are just the person we need for the Blue Lighting Green Berets team. Medic - Corporal Lambros Katechakis Coming from 7 yearlong studies he graduated from the Army Officers Military Academy. AOMA, which he finds boring, trained him to become a Medic and be an expert in Emergency Medicine. After his graduation, he was assigned to the Green Berets Blue Lightning team and has since found out that the real military is by no means boring. Head Quarters – Lieutenant Tasos Balaoritis Also a graduate of the Army Officers Military Academy but not a Medic. Balaoritis was trained to become a Military Psychologist. Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder or any sort of disorder has no chance in front of his skills. Calm as anyone can be he provides support to all Green Berets operations. Pilot – Corporal Antonis Fidelis Only typically did he need to graduate from the Air Force Academy. Piloted his first chopper at the age of 15 and his first plane when he was 17. That is what happens when your father owns a Flight School. Due to his amazing skills in Army Aviation vehicles, the Green Berets Blue Lightning team immediately recruited him. Important details: a)In SP you should be the THE GROUP LEADER of the BLUE LIGHTNING team. b)In MP all players who will participate in the mission should be READY before the opperation begins. c)It is important to read the STRATEGY section of the briefing. d)The campaign is FULLY VOICED in Greek and there are ENGLISH subtitles. Although ... who does not speak Greek? e)At the Lythium map some doors do not open. It has been fixed via a script. You can open those doors with the ALT key. f)All testings have taken place in a HOSTED server. g)Respawn:Instant Requirements: a)Arma 3 Apex b)Marksmen DLC c)HAFM: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=20288 d)Lythium: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=32694 e)ASR AI3: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24080 f)CBA: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 Bugs: Minor: None Serious: None Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

Episode 07 - Golden Paint : Still Early Alpha University Exams have arrived hence no time hence no testing group availability hence new releases not until Easter Vacations. Yep it is nothing but studying when in a university. Nothing else Changelog: Chapter-01 ... v1.0 to v2.0 ... 29/12/2018 Added a Campaign Intro. Added extra media files. Added extra audio files. Added effects to the intros. Added the necessary Credits. Fixed the infoText lag. Fixed a spelling mistake. Fixed the modules lag. Fixed the Scripts lag. Fixed the tasks lag. Fixed the Episode 05 serious task lag. Fixed the possibility of players not getting into the needed vehicles. Enhanced the FPS of every mission. Enhanced how players await the start of each mission. Removed hundreds of unnecessary trigger conditions. Removed dozens of unnecessary modules. Replaced the Loading Screen. Replaced how intro text is shown. Replaced the way chats are shown. Updated all needed scripts. Please note, after the testing of a mission it may take time for the release. That is because enhancements recommended by the testing group need to be implemented and details fixes need to be done too sometimes. Feedback is always welcome but since this is our first campaign feedback is very important. All missions have and will be tested but if any sort of glitch or bug appears please report it here in the forums or more directly here. Also recommendations or describing things you like will also be very helpful. Making a campaign is really hard hence your assistance will surely help. This is the one and only Greek Voiced Campaign so enjoy

    [SP/COOP-(1-4)] Defying the Odds

    Was hoping there would be two mission releases in Christmas but I had to update some missions due to add-on updates and reach the final stage of all Chapter 1 missions. Due to that: Naturally if you have any recommendations about the Campaign creation feel free to share them. The story is pretty much set but it may change if we cannot implement it in the Arma engine.
  24. Seems like a good part of an intro when someone wants to include a detailed description of the situation ^^^

    Bored:/

    @DanielMurphy Dude you serious? I used to log in once a day for like 3 minutes total. And if I did not attack I spent about 20 seconds daily. Nowadays I log in like once every 2 or 3 days for a total of 3 minutes. There is nothing to do in the game. Who spends more time in AMO?
