  1. I must admit that things are not very clear but in general to make a video compatible with Arma 3 so as to play as it should: 


    1. You create a video,
    2. you download, install and open Any Video Converter
    3. and you convert your video to a .ogv one [without changing the default resolution of the video provided by AVC].


    Maybe other programs exist too but as far as I am aware only the above works.

  2. Ok that is weird  :scratchchin:

    So the video plays as it should including sound and image and only skips some parts of the video scenes? All other video scenes are shown as they should? Sorry for repeating myself. When I say black screens I mean when the video plays normally and black screens is the effect of the video closing. Maybe however I am translating it wrong.

  3. @7erra The trick was to use 4 actions for which you need 4 different variables. Each player had one of those 4 variables. That way all had the action and once the one was activated all were erased!


    @pierremgi I placed the code in an objects init. The object was a  vanilla table. Actually the action applies to an object on that table but in order to make the action more visible I added it to the table. And yes we are talking about a hosted server. No copy paste here anywhere. 

  4. Well first off:

    • can INDFOR units get in a BLUFOR vehicle? Because sometimes some factions cannot get in vehicles where other factions are in. Even when the latter factions are only in as passengers. That one I learned the hard way. Also, 
    • is the sync between the get in nearest and the hold waypoint needed? Have no experience with the hold waypoint so I would just use a move one for the boat and as a condition in a trigger simply put:
    nameOfUnit1 in nameOfBoat && nameOfUnit2 in nameOfBoat && nameOfUnit3 in nameOfBoat

    the getInNearest waypoint is really nice if activated once the boat is near.

    • To do that you can have a move waypoint for the units before the getInNearest waypoint. That move waypoint will  be activated once the boat is near with something like:
    nameOfBoat distance aMarkerName < 15 

    That should work.

  5. It has been some time but here we are with yet another update! For starters however I would like to wish you all a:




    From then on we have Mission 09 having its tasks ready and awaiting the voice recording while Mission 10 has started being developed. Mission 07 was tested but due to some details the mission could not end! That sadly means that the mission might have to be tested again making its release date unknown. Mission 06 however was tested and after some fixes took place it is ready for release! Feedback however will be greatly appreciated especially with the mission below!!!




    Episode 06 - Cave Invaders RELEASE!




    In this mission there were weird tasks that players however did manage to overcome! Will you be able to do so as well? It remains to be seen....


    Also there are more news to the picture. The final release date of the campaign is scheduled to be before August of 2020. Last but not least the credits have been updated. More are to come when the needed missions are released.

  6. Hey guys just tested a mission and came up with an issue. I am using this code:


    ["init", [y, "images\spoilers.jpg", "Spoilers"]] call BIS_fnc_initLeaflet;

    ["init", [x, "images\spoilers.jpg", "Spoilers"]] call BIS_fnc_initLeaflet;


    in an MP mission. All worked fine but one thing. The action to see the leaflet both times was only visible to the host. Clients could not even see the action. How can I make the above action visible to all in MP please?

  7. Got a bit confused. Do you want to transfer everything in a script or to solve the LOAD waypoint issue?


    In any sort of case the LOAD waypoint you mentioned is a risk. You can indeed use a MOVE waypoint for the boat and then sync a trigger to it so that the boat continues to move only when the HVIs are inside. Now as for the module you use to hide and unhide the boat you can simply use the:



    hideObjectGlobal nameOfObject;

    so as to avoid the use of the module. Modules sometimes lag the game. Another thing is that maybe the waypoint method you mentioned will not work. Waypoints on moving objects can also cause problems. Had tried to but a slingload waypoint on a moving object once and the chopper went to the initial place of the crate and then to the new position. If that happens with the GET IN waypoint in your case we will have to spawn a waypoint after the boat has arrived to pick them up. But maybe using a MOVE waypoint for the HVIs and having a trigger to activate the next GET IN waypoint only after the boat has arrived will work. Finally yes with the: 


    deleteVehicle nameOfUnit; 


    you can erase all units and vehicles   :thumbsup:

  8. Thanks! It worked!!!

    The audio did not but I just replaced it with a custom audio file. Oh and I could not select the particular building on the map. For some reason:


    nearestBuilding player setHit ["glass_1", 1]; 


    did not work. Due to that I had to hide the building and place the same on as an object. Would be better if the above worked however :scratchchin:

  9. This should have been easy to find but strangely I could not find anything. What I would like is to make the windows of a building break at a specific time.

    We are not talking about a vanilla building but for a building located at the Lythium map. Think it is a Jbad building too. And if possible have them break with the needed sound. If the later is not possible I will just play a sound for the players.

    Thanks guys! So judging from the above in the init field of the units I place:


    if (isServer) then {[this,"enemy"] call BIS_fnc_setUnitInsignia};


    That way it will run once even if it is in the init field of the units.


    Now, "enemy" is not a common Vanilla Arma insignia. All PCs must know this mod (and find the insignia!). Good luck with that.

    I suggest you test with a standard insignia before trying a custom one.



    It is an image located in the mission folder. Enemy is just the name given in the description.txt.
