    Issue with BIS_fnc_spawnGroup

    Thanks mate, I'll give it a go, though I think I've already done it like that before.
  2. Hi there, Using the following code I've been able to spawn groups of AI, easy enough. However, I want to remove the randomness and spawn specific groups, ie. HAF_InfSquad. I've never been able to get it to work, even though according to all the forum topics and BIS own wiki pages, I should be able to do it. if(!isServer) exitWith {}; //======== _groups = "True" configClasses (configFile >> "cfgGroups" >> "Indep" >> "IND_F" >> "Infantry"); //======== systemChat str "inf_script_3 working"; for [{_i=0}, {_i<1}, {_i=_i+1}] do { _randomgroup = selectRandom _groups; _grp = [getMarkerPos "spawn_marker_4", INDEPENDENT, _randomgroup] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup; { _x unassignItem "NVGoggles_INDEP"; _x removeItem "NVGoggles_INDEP"; _x removeWeapon "launch_I_Titan_F"; _x addPrimaryWeaponItem "acc_flashlight"; _x enableGunLights "forceOn"; } forEach units _grp; _grp addWaypoint [getpos REAPER, 150]; }; What I want to be able to do is this code, but whenever I use this the script runs, and no errors are thrown, but nothing happens: if(!isServer) exitWith {}; //======== systemChat str "inf_script_3 working"; for [{_i=0}, {_i<1}, {_i=_i+1}] do { _randomgroup = selectRandom _groups; _grp = [getMarkerPos "spawn_marker_4", INDEPENDENT, (configFile >> "cfgGroups" >> "Indep" >> "IND_F" >> "Infantry" >> "HAF_InfSquad")] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup; { _x unassignItem "NVGoggles_INDEP"; _x removeItem "NVGoggles_INDEP"; _x removeWeapon "launch_I_Titan_F"; _x addPrimaryWeaponItem "acc_flashlight"; _x enableGunLights "forceOn"; } forEach units _grp; _grp addWaypoint [getpos REAPER, 150]; };

    Unity Security Force is Recruiting

    UPDATE Mission 1 Debrief Bomb threat to the island was pacified - but at a cost. One bomb out of four was detonated, destroying the city. Intel received from captured enemy OPFOR officer suggests a large scale invasion of Altis at some point in the near future. From the Ashes: Second mission - 9th May 0900 Zulu. Situation Surprise strike! Enemy GREENFOR have captured the main Altis airbase and set up a strong defensive posture in preparation of their main invasion force. USEC and allied elements have fallen back to a derelict outpost in Pyrgos with no assets. OPFOR are hunting us down, and have arrived at Pyrgos docks by boat... Objectives 1. Eliminate the OPFOR presence in Pyrgos, and requisition their speedboats. 2. Travel to designated positions of interest on the map and recover assets in preparation of re-taking the airbase. 3. Eliminate any OPFOR outposts we come across. 4. Retake Altis airbase. Downfall: Final mission objectives - 16th May 0900 Zulu. 1. Coming Soon
  4. Hey, I'm getting huge problems for some reason when I try to access VAS while using vanilla Arma3. My main error is "No entry 'config.bin/VAS_Diag/controls/gundetailslist.ListScrollBar' I did a lot of digging and the only fix I could find was to go into the common.hpp file and edit anything that said "scrollbar" to "listscrollbar", but that didn't work - only came up with more errors. Also curious is, as I said, it only happens when playing vanilla. When I have my mods enabled, it is fine. Cheers Macca

    Editing Showcase

    hey mate, did you figure out anything more on this, I've opened the pbo files in a viewer but don't know how to put it into the editor so i can view it all
  7. Possibly looking for a firing range mission that has a script which is player activated through a scroll menu option and starts the firing range, targets pop up randomly, possibly some on rails moving side to side, and you get a score at the end. Or if someone could help me to make one that would be awesome.
  8. Hey JSF, I'll get hold of ChaddlesG. That mother error has something to do with the overall system we ran between our Arma servers and their mods, and our website. Basically what it did is record time spent on the servers, straight on to website statistics and if you completed a training exercise, it would tell the website to award a ribbon etc.
  9. Hey nKey, I've recently downloaded the updated version (0.8.3) and have been having trouble with it. When I die in game it "deactivates" TFAR. I have come to the conclusion that I have done something wrong in the update process as I've tested it with others and they haven't had the same issues.
  10. If you're looking for a well organised yet fun group to play Arma 3 with, then look no further. www.usecforce.com Unity Security Force is an international Milsim community founded in 2002 by Dean “Rocket†Hall, the creator of DayZ. We conduct simulated military operations, and our members achievements and statistics are recorded to provide a full virtual military career. Although we have ranks, command structure and we conduct our missions in an organized way, our main goal is always to have fun, and we welcome people from all around the globe. We have our own server where we create and play our own missions every week, using mods such as ACRE, XMed, Lifter and many more. Every few months we have force-wide operations, consisting of large scale missions connected by a narrative over a series of weeks. We are not based on any other units, but are our own force with our own doctrines, training procedures and history. For Arma 2 we also developed a pool of in house mods, which we released to the public on the release of Arma 3. http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?167440-USEC-arma-2-mods-by-Rocket-public-release&p=2542243#post2542243 http://i.imgur.com/iU37pQF.jpg Jump on our teamspeak to say hello and have a run around with us: (no password) (You can also connect by typing usecforce.com into the IP) Although USEC is a community based around ARMA, we do play many other games on a casual basis including Planetside 2, Mount and Blade, Company of Heroes, Payday 2, and Total War. Just jump on Teamspeak and suggest a game and someone will likely be interested! Within ARMA III we are comprised currently of 3 primary units: An infantry unit, the Unity Royal Lancers A rotary-wing aviation unit, the Little Angels Squadron An armoured unit, the Steel Riders http://cloud-2.steampowered.com/ugc/705107842989628896/8E74EDABD4671FB32E7CECA62EA042DD69095BE8/ http://i.imgur.com/jdjzPXk.jpg Note: Ages 16+ Come check us out!
  11. I'm new to coding and that, so where exactly do you change these values, and how do you access it? And I assume you guys didn't have the issue with radios switching out after death? Maybe it's a bug between TFR and Invade and Annex?
  12. [/color]Just small note - we conducted successful 136 players game with mod( http://arma3.swec.se/game/data/881268 ) I assume you didn't have any issues with the 152 switching to a 148 during these tests then? Could it possibly an issue between TFR and Invade and Annex?
  13. Hey nkey. Love the mod, so much smoother than ACRE. However a couple of issues. 1) When playing Invade and Annex, when we die (as Blufor) and get revived, the radio swaps out, even though we started off with the default radio. I know you've answered similar questions to this a couple times but this circumstance is slightly different. We're not running any extra mods or addons, just vanilla Arma 3 with TFR. 2) The 152 (haven't tested the 148 and FADAK) doesn't seem to have the range that it's supposed to. Only works properly within 600 metres or so. However, I am going to test this again ASAP. Future features: 1) Having the short range radios as an item would be really helpful, similar to the way the long range radios are backpacks. 2) The ability to have a radio set to right or left ear, and another radio to the other ear 3) A third radio for each faction for short range stuff (assuming I haven't tested the 152 correctly and its range is 3km) for inner squad use. Cheers
