    All I'm seeing is 'Rat-on-a-Stick' franchise opportunities! And thanks as always to halek for another great update to the best -- IMHO -- survival MOD for ArmA ever!

    Hi haleks, Great MOD. Though it was about time I said that! Sorry about the 'accident' with the OP. It's still available via Google Chache ATM if you need to grab a copy: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:jHVSxc3XKkMJ:https://forums.bistudio.com/topic/183264-ravage-mod/+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=nz&client=firefox-b-ab Not sure if that will make your job of redoing it easier or harder. EDIT: Just a small bug report... Trying out the new Tanoa map with 0.1.38: While in the Briefing, clicking on the Inventory link in the Players section brought up 'The instruction at 0x0000000001048976 referenced at memory at 0x0000000000000054. The memory could not be read. Click on OK to terminate the program.' Only MODs loaded are CBA, Ravage and Ravage APEX in that order. PS: This might be a Dev build issue as I forgot I was still out there. Will try on Stable. Same on Stable. Memory location changes but still crashes when clicking the inventory link. Everything seems to work fine in game though, so not a show stopper.

    Visual Upgrade – Feedback

    ShackTac's Map Autobrightness Mod helps with this problem.

    VON Improvements - Feedback

    Are there any plans to allow access to some of the other parameters to the codec other than the current single quality control, or at least is it possible to document what these are hard coded to in the implementation, please. F.e.: comp (Encod Complexity), framesize, expect-loss, max-delay, etc.
  5. I'm not sure how that would be that different from the existing Roadmap that they have already released. Also, if they started doing that they would have to deal with the multitude of feedback along the lines of "You said you were doing this, but you did that!!'. Existing system seems to be working as it should.
  6. One quick thing I noticed this morning, the mod icon doesn't appear for me in the Virtual Arsenal or the Edit Loadout with current dev build. The one I mean is that shown in the video https://youtu.be/B1Zz7xHlAO8?t=2m17s

    EDEN - Questions

    Don't have a specific link on hand ATM, but there was an official response to this question where they have specifically said that the feature was being removed as they couldn't ensure that IDs would remain the same from build to build and therefore any code that relied on hard coded ID would break. Currently the functionality is still available in the 2D editor, but it will never be added back to the 3D Eden editor. With the 2D editor scheduled to go away soonâ„¢, you should treat it as depricated and try to find an alternative. For removing grass you can use the grass cutter found in the helper objects catagory. For removing buildings you can place an object (i.e. invisible helipad) over the building and use init code: hideObjectGlobal nearestBuilding this; For removing othe objects that have class names you can use the same as buildings. I haven't found an alternative for removing objects that don't have a class name (i.e. shrubs and trees, etc.).

    Eden Editor object placement not accurate

    As austin_medic suggests, you're trying to pack the vehicles too tightly together. You can see in the video the vehicles spawning in and being (safely) destroyed where their bounding boxes are touching. Only fix is to increase the spacing between them.
  9. Spent a heap of time looking for a list of the official MP mission names for use on our dedicated server and was unable to find a complete list of these in one post. After compiling this list I thought others might find it helpful. missionWhitelist[] = { "MP_Bootcamp_01.Altis", // ZGM 4+1 Bootcamp "MP_COOP_m01.Stratis", // COOP 10 Escape From Stratis "MP_COOP_m02.Stratis", // COOP 07 Headhunters "MP_COOP_m03.Altis", // COOP 10 Escape From Altis "MP_COOP_m04.Stratis", // ZvP 10+1 Defend Kamino "MP_COOP_m05.Altis", // ZvP 10+1 Defend Syrta "MP_COOP_m06.Altis", // ZvP 10+1 Seize Edoris "MP_COOP_m07.Altis", // ZvP 10+1 Seize Feres "MP_COOP_m08.Altis", // COOP 12 Tanks "MP_End_Game_02.Altis", // CTF 32 End Game Feres "MP_End_Game_03.Altis", // CTF 16 End Game Zaros "MP_GroundSupport01.Altis", // SC 06 Support Katalaki "MP_GroundSupport02.Altis", // SC 08 Support Sofia "MP_GroundSupport03.Altis", // SC 08 Support Pyrgos "MP_GroundSupport04.Altis", // COOP 04 Support Rodopoli "MP_GroundSupport05.Stratis", // COOP 05 Support Stratis "MP_Marksmen_01.Altis", // CTF 16 End Game Kavala "MP_ZGM_m11.Altis", // ZGM 48+2 Master Altis "MP_ZGM_m11_EAST.Altis", // ZGM 16+2 Master Altis (CSAT) "MP_ZGM_m11_GUER.Altis", // ZGM 16+2 Master Altis (AAF) "MP_ZGM_m11_WEST.Altis", // ZGM 16+2 Master Altis (NATO) "MP_ZGM_m12.Stratis", // ZGM 48+2 Master Stratis "MP_ZGM_m12_EAST.Stratis", // ZGM 16+2 Master Stratis (CSAT) "MP_ZGM_m12_GUER.Stratis", // ZGM 16+2 Master Stratis (AAF) "MP_ZGM_m12_WEST.Stratis", // ZGM 16+2 Master Stratis (NATO) "MP_ZGM_m13.VR", // ZGM 48+2 Master Virtual Reality "MP_ZGM_m13_EAST.VR", // ZGM 16+2 Master Virtual Reality (CSAT) "MP_ZGM_m13_GUER.VR", // ZGM 16+2 Master Virtual Reality (AAF) "MP_ZGM_m13_WEST.VR", // ZGM 16+2 Master Virtual Reality (NATO) "MP_ZR_8_Karts01.Altis", // ZR 8+1 Race on Altis (Karts) "MP_ZR_8_Karts02.Stratis", // ZR 8+1 Race on Stratis (Karts) "MP_ZSC_m10.Altis", // ZSC 32+2 Control Edessa "Showcase_Combined_arms.Stratis", // COOP 08 Combined Arms "Showcase_FiringFromVehicles.Altis", // COOP 04 Firing From Vehicles };
  10. As a general rule of thumb you can usually accommodate a number of servers equal to the number of physical cores on your CPU divided by four with a minimum of hassle. So on my current 16 core setup I can manage 4 servers or two servers and two headless clients or combinations of the two depending on the mission needs. A bigger consideration WRT server capability is the incoming/outgoing internet bandwidth. Here again you need to be looking at around a peak of 10kbps per player connected, so for 40 players you're looking at a peak of 400kbps to keep everything in sync. Most of the time you will be well below this threshold but when the action gets hot and heavy it is very easy to swamp you connection and introduce horrible effects in-game. This usually isn't a problem for wired connections, but any sort of wifi is to be avoided like the plague.
  11. I would assume the answer to be yes. I haven't been able to find any conclusive answer on the net anywhere yet but don't see why they'd change their winning strategy now. EDIT: Just did some more research through the Steam forums and yes indeedy, if you have an existing BattlEye ban from DayZ/ArmA then the ban extends to H1Z1 and vice versa. So once again, yes, a Global BattlEye ban is indeed a Global ban. Don't cheat, don't do drugs and stay in school!

    Fatigue Feedback (dev branch)

    Test_LegacyFatigue has now appeared in the Arma 3 Samples package.

    Fatigue Feedback (dev branch)

    Taken directly from SITREP #00133: So it indeed looks like we will have the best of both worlds available to us. This goes a long way to mitigating almost all of the criticisms that have been posted... almost ;-)

    Dev Branch Server ?

    Yes I do read the forum. I realise that there is no Dev branch server package available, but nothing that I have read here or elsewhere explicitly states that the arma3server.exe that is distributed along with the Dev branch client is not or is intended to be non-functional. The arma3server.exe distributed in the Stable branch definately works in this manner, with the caveat that it also requires Steam to be running and logged in. It is not too much of a stretch to assume that the Dev branch would work in the same way. So my question still stands (with modified wording to avoid ANY misunderstanding!): Is it possible to run a Dev branch (i.e. 1.55) Dedicated server via the arma3server.exe distributed with the Dev branch client? Addendum: Appears that the problem may be on my end as the MP Server Browser is showing at least four Dev branch (i.e. 1.55) dedicated servers ATM.

    Dev Branch Server ?

    Has anyone managed to get a Dev branch Dedicated Server to run? I've been trying to get anything to work but even with the simplest missions no players are able to join the server.
