  1. Is it able to read? Do you have any error logs?
  2. Hmz.... sounds interesting. Is it for ArmA 3? And would you only appreciate Dutch members?

    For Devs and "Script Kiddies"

    I do not think you can make security holes with SQF, LOL.
  4. Posting here does not get it fixed either. Place a bug report on the feedback tracker or reply on an existing bug report that describes the problem you described.
  5. Does it happen always at the same time? Does it say "no message received for x seconds" before you get kicked? Are you sure it's not the server crashing? Have you tried other servers? If so, how many?
  6. It is true that createAgent saves on fps. It's because createAgent creates AI that is "frozen". So, no calculations have to be done for that particular agent. You can not have the same thing with createAgent as with createUnit.

    Objects affect performance?

    Yes and no. It depends on your system but not completely either. There is a certain limit in the ArmA 3 engine that makes it so it does not fully utilise the power of hardware. For example: if you have a very good rig and a sick rig; the difference will be small because the engine has it's limits. Which means that if you get 50fps on a good system, there is no guarantee that you would get 100 on a sick system. One other thing arma does not like: objects really close to each other. For example: 200 objects in 50m is worse than 40 objects in 50m. So, many objects within a certain radius will drop your fps a lot. But, it also depends on which objects were used. Some have more poly's than others. It's just a matter of trying it out :)
  8. Script hooks in ArmA are usually hacks. In ArmA, you put code in the mission that you are making. Have you checked these links? https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Category:Scripting_Commands_Arma_3 https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ Also, just a tip: do not start something new in ArmA 2. It is old (not forgotten though). Try starting with ArmA 3 :) A good tip would be to find a mission or script which has the thing in it you want to make and then study it. Good luck!
  9. this should work: if (driver _nameOfVehicle == Player) then { hint"you are the driver"; };
  10. So let me get this straight: You want a script that tells you what positions are taken of a certain vehicle? If so, what purpose do you have for that? Remote check or a check if you are standing next to a vehicle and execute the check?
  11. So you want to show a hint when a position is taken? Then what are you going to use to give that hint? The option to get in as driver is disabled anyway if there is someone in the driver seat. (unless it's an AI)

    People auto disconnecting

    Back in the day when I had my own server I saw it happening a lot. But not as often as you describe though... In this case, it is either the client or the host who changed something in versions of ArmA2/Mod

    People auto disconnecting

    It can be people joining without the required mods or a newer/older ArmA 2 build?
  14. Yes you can :) you can do whatever you want: fudge with scripts, call variables connected to tasks and all that stuff.
  15. http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18955 If you know where to find the files for the mission you are playing, then you can put in the script I linked above :)
  16. It is not available because the missions do not have the debug console enabled. I think it is possible to enable it by putting this inside the mission's description.ext: enableDebugConsole = 1; Then, you can use the debug console to open the splendid camera :)
  17. Try this: if ("nameOfRadio" in backpackItems Player) then { //put stuff here that needs to happen when player has the item }; In this case, the player needs to put the radio in the backpack.
  18. if you have a windows server running, why not use Remote Desktop Connection? Installing Tcadmin is a lot of trouble just for access to the server.
  19. Do you mean the player has to pick up a radio? Or do you mean that the task will complete if the player has heard a radio transmission?
  20. I might add that your init.sqf was called init.sqf.txt when I opened it.

    Squad logo not shown!

    Ok sounds like it has been solved! Kind of. :)
  22. NEVER put waitUntil in the init.sqf :) It will probably not solve your problem but it will improve you mission. And I have a question about line 47: waitUntil {!isnull tio1 && tio1 == tio1 && !isnull tio2 && tio2 == tio2 && !isnull tio3 && tio3 == tio3 && !isnull tio4 && tio4 == tio4 && !isnull tio5 && tio5 == tio5}; What the hack are you trying to achieve with that line? It does not make sense to me. But you are the one that made it probably so maybe you could shed me some light?
  23. Are you kidding me? That script returns the amount of BLUFOR units..... has nothing to do with that the OP wants???? @chillroy: You should put the code I gave you in the trigger condition :) Sorry for the confusion.
  24. I should help you out a little bit more: Let's say you have 3 spawn points that are randomly selected, and after the player is spawned on one of them, you want to delete the rest Here's how you do it: Create 3 triggers and build the spawn place and whatever you want to be at the spawn place. Give all of those objects a name. (make the names really obvious, it will save you a lot of brainwork, I promise) Then you need to make sure that it (whatever selects the random spawnpoint) can run a little script for each spawn point. It should be able to run this little script if player spawns on place 1: playerSpawnedOnOne = true; Do the same for the other spawn point scripts: // for spawn place 2 playerSpawnedOnTwo = true; // for spawn place 3 playerSpawnedOnThree = true; Now you can setup the triggers: for trigger 1, use this condition: playerSpawnedOnOne; (this will check if playerSpawnedOnOne is true) Do this for the other triggers too. (playerSpawnedOnTwo for trigger 2 and so on.....) What we currently have is 3 triggers that will activate when a player spawns on the spawn point that belongs to that trigger :) Now we only have to do the last part of scripting: make sure that if trigger 1 becomes active, it will delete all of the objects that belong to spawn point 2 and 3. And of course, same counts for the other triggers. (2 deletes objects for 1 and 3, 3 deletes objects for 2 and 1) For this, you can do the following: put all of the names for the objects belonging to each point in an array and attach a variable to it: objectsForOne = ["someFireplace", "aTent", "canOfBeans", "emptyMag", "someOtherCrap"]; (put the above in some script that runs as early as possible. (preferably in a script being loaded with preproccessfilelinenumbers) Do the same thing for the other points. (you can put the rest one line below the others) Then, for trigger 1, put this in it's ON ACT field: deleteVehicle objectsForTwo; deleteVehicle objectsForThree; This will keep the on act field very clean instead of putting all of the object names in the on act field :) Do the correct thing for the other triggers as well. Now you should have a solid system running like it should :) You might need to test it though. all of the above code is out of the top of my head so there might be something in there you know ;) Anyways, I hope this was clear enough to you. Good luck!
