  1. Yeah I kind of wondered that but now I am wondering does that only work on MP scenarios then? Since even when I would add that command to the missions description.ext and then export it to single player still I had no access to the debug console. i remember though before I think I used like a single player cheat mod (don’t think that allowed the console, but it allowed you to enable like god mode and stuff so maybe that could help.
  2. I read that, I put the one in my description.ext with my GUID and yet when I launch my mission campaign I don’t gain access to the debug console. did I do the wrong command, or do you need more than one GUID?
  3. I am not sure if this is possible, but I am asking here if there is a way to allow me as the creator of my missions/campaigns to use the debug console so that would allow me to easily skip certain things to make sure certain tasks are working as intended. When looking at the wiki description.ext I seen there is the enabled debug command: enableDebugConsole[] = { "76561198XXXXXXXXX", "76561198YYYYYYYYY", }; // admins and players with their UID in this list have access But when I did the above (obviously using my ID) the dev console would never show up for me in the campaign when I am playing it and I even decided for the heck of it to just export a single mission from my campaign to see if that made any difference and still nothing. enableDebugConsole = 1; // Enables for Admins, SP? Otherwise if I don't do the way for the GUID that was listed, I could use the above - but if I am reading correctly wouldn't that just enabled it for everyone who plays the mission/campaign?

    Setting up a convoy ambush?

    Yeah maybe I might have to do that, but my main issue still is that after doing the various testing that the vehicles are too spaced out so even if do the script method it seems I would have almost some how erase the convoy, then recreate the abandoned vehicles on like the road where the ambush takes place to sort of visualize that you ambushed it and then the passengers would disembark to defend it.

    Setting up a convoy ambush?

    First things first its been almost two months and I am still struggling with this and been busy IRL to respond to this. My main issue was that the lead vehicle would be somewhat damaged or destroyed, but then the next vehicle was like 3 car lengths behind and so were the other vehicles so it isn't much of an ambush when the rest of the vehicles in the 4-5 man convoy is like 3 car lengths away it is kind of hard as a player to deal with the remaining convoys and enemy combatants. I am getting so sick of these convoy missions, and like I said in OP this is probably going to be my last I ever do (if I remember to not make anymore) I am almost thinking of just scrapping this mission entirely and maybe just setting up a mission where the convoy is already stopped/parked at the location refueling and maybe the player is tasked with sneaking in at night and planting charges on the parked convoy? and maybe that will solve the issue of actually having the convoy being ambushed by the player I think that is what I might have to do, or just scrap this whole campaign mission completely.

    Setting up a convoy ambush?

    Yeah well I don't need them that close, but when using norrins/devestators scripts I noticed the vehicles in the convoy are like almost 20m away from each other and that just doesn't seem to work the greatest when I am setting an ambush where you plant charges to ambush the convoy. I will maybe have to check that one out then, since I noticed the route my convoy is taking there is like a really bad turn/bend and I noticed that was a issue I had where the convoy will kind of get stuck/hung up on that bend, I did move the convoy a bit closer to a straighter road and that seemed to help a bit more but the main issue I am having is the convoy being really far apart so as a player when you touch off the bombs they will only destroy the first ifrit (well unless you plant the charges like 15ms away). I think after I figure this out, this might be my last convoy ambush or convoy type mission, since it's almost causing me to pull my hair out.
  7. I am currently working on a mission that is part of my campaign I've been working on and this mission entails the player to ambush a enemy supply convoy that is passing through a town and for the life of me I cannot figure how to have the convoy run through the ambushing place with all the vehicles sort of close by so the explosive charges planted by the player would destroy a few of the vehicles. I tired using Norrins/Devestators scripts and that doesn't seem to work the greatest because the vehicles behind the armed ifrit seem to be like really far away so when the ifrit is destroyed the other vehicles in the convoy are too far away to be effected after blowing all my charges, I am kind of stomped on this particular part, and I think this might be my first time setting up like a convoy ambush like this.
  8. I just tried that and same thing nothing happens. But if I would put: p1 action ["getOut", vehicle p1]; Then it somewhat works where the player actually like gets out of the plane (but looks like what would happen if you would get out of a parked aircraft) but then the player has no parachute and stuff. edit: after looking at the functions I found what works. BIS_fnc_PlaneEjection So I use this code: BIS_fnc_PlaneEjection [neo_1] spawn BIS_fnc_PlaneEjection; This basically works as if the player hit "V" twice to eject and it even does the whole seat ejection and the auto deploy of the parachute.
  9. I tried googling this and I came up with this code here: p1 action["eject", neo_1]; But when I do that nothing happens, the player doesn't eject out of the plane, I then was looking at the wiki and found a getOut action, but when I did that, it caused the player to actually like climb out of the plane and not be ejected from the ejection seat? So I am asking here how to do this, since all the things I've found online were the code similar to above but that doesn't seem to work, maybe some things changed with the new jets update DLC thing? since when I found this code that was back like a year ago?
  10. I am not sure how to word this correctly, but I on a mission I am working on I have it where the player is in a aircraft and is tasked with destroying a convoy and I would want to have it where when the player strikes first, or is spotted by the convoy... the convoy would say call in an aircraft to help defend them. I would call this aircraft in via a trigger, but because the convoy is on the move it is hard to use a trigger, so I am wondering if there is a way to make a trigger that moves along with a target so I can maybe easily have it be where when the convoy sees the player in his aircraft it will then trigger and then trigger the aircraft reinforcements? Or will I have to do some other type scripting to get the results that I want?
  11. It has been years, since Lucas Bari has been back home – he first left Tanoa (his homeland) several years ago… in 2028 to be exact. After learning his pilot’s license back on Tanoa he was able to acquire a job that landed him in the Mediterranean, on the island of Altis. He has been working at that job which was a flight charter company for several years, and with how successful he has been he never looked back. In 2035, there was a big natural disaster. A tsunami to be exact and this disaster caused the government to fall on Tanoa, and without a government a militia or force took the government’s place. This militia was known as Syndicat, a paramilitary and drug running faction – they became the acting government after the disaster happened. Most of the former government of Tanoa fled the island, or they were killed off in the Syndicat coup for the island, some say that the Syndicat must have gotten outside help in order to pull it off, but others think they just took advantage of the the situation at hand while the government was in shambles to take control. It is now 2036, a year after the Tsunami rocked the Tanoan shores. As Lucas Bari was enjoying it long deserved vacation he gotten a letter from his brother Caleb Bari: This letter detailed that their mother passed recently and he should come to Tanoa as soon as possible and figures he should help his brother out since he wasn’t there for when she died. Follow the story of Lucas Bari, who has been away for 7 long years. He is now heading back to Tanoa after hearing about the loss of his mother, but he will soon find out that his homeland is not what it once was. Please Note: Even though this campaign is by itself, it is in the same universe as my others... so unless you played the previous ones some certain events/people may be unfamiliar to those that haven't played them, but the previous campaigns are not required to be played to enjoy this one (you will just miss some easter eggs and stuff) Also this is very WIP, there could be bugs and fixes which may or may not get fixed till closer to release. Change-log Version 0.35: Added two new missions to the campaign, so there is now a total of 6 missions. Did some fixes on some missions, making sure there is no hiccups. I also updated Missions "Shooting Practice" & "Loss" because of feedback from a person who played my campaign that was saying the player should have been given a launcher to make things more even. So now in "Shooting Practice" you will get access to the RPG and then come "Loss" you will get that same RPG at the start of the mission.

    Create MP Campaign

    I am not sure how you can make it work like how the Apex Protocol works, what I think what you may just have to do is convert every single mission in the campaign to work via multiplayer (like add more playable units if you say you only had the 1 unit as the player and or convert the ai partners to be playable?) I've made SP campaigns but never once messed with converting my campaigns to become multiplayer, but I did convert a few of my singleplayer oriented missions to multiplayer. What you will want to do when you convert a singleplayer mission to mutliplayer you will need to add some sort of respawn or download like a reviving script; otherwise, what can happen is when all plays die the mission fails. Here is the description.ext of my mission that was singleplayer and then converted to a co-op mp mission. respawn = 5; respawnDelay = 1; author="Panicsferd"; OnLoadName = "Operation Buzzard"; OnLoadMission = "Parachute in. Plant Charges on A-143 Buzzards. Get Extracted."; loadScreen = "images\loadscreen.jpg"; overviewPicture = "images\overview.jpg"; overviewText = "Our NATO Forces station on Altis are being torn to shreads by AAF fastmovers that are in the area. Satalite imagery shows that this airport is the source of the fastmovers and we need you to parachute in then plant charges on the planes, and then we will extract you out of there."; overviewTextLocked = "Our NATO Forces station on Altis are being torn to shreads by AAF fastmovers that are in the area. Satalite imagery shows that this airport is the source of the fastmovers and we need you to parachute in then plant charges on the planes, and then we will extract you out of there."; disabledAI = 1; class CfgDebriefing { class End1 { title = "Mission Completed"; subtitle = ""; description = "You have successfully destroyed the AAF fastmovers that were tearing our NATO forces to pieces. On behalf of all NATO forces station in Altis we thank you."; pictureBackground = ""; picture = "images\debriefing.jpg"; pictureColor[] = {0.0,0.3,0.6,1}; }; }; class Header { gameType = COOP; minPlayers = 1; maxPlayers = 6; }; And here is what that same description.ext was on the singleplayer mission. respawn = 5; respawnDelay = 1; author="Panicsferd"; OnLoadName = "Operation Buzzard"; OnLoadMission = "Parachute in. Plant Charges on A-143 Buzzards. Get Extracted."; loadScreen = "images\loadscreen.jpg"; overviewPicture = "images\overview.jpg"; overviewText = "Our NATO Forces station on Altis are being torn to shreads by AAF fastmovers that are in the area. Satalite imagery shows that this airport is the source of the fastmovers and we need you to parachute in then plant charges on the planes, and then we will extract you out of there."; overviewTextLocked = "Our NATO Forces station on Altis are being torn to shreads by AAF fastmovers that are in the area. Satalite imagery shows that this airport is the source of the fastmovers and we need you to parachute in then plant charges on the planes, and then we will extract you out of there."; disabledAI = 1; class CfgDebriefing { class End1 { title = "Mission Completed"; subtitle = ""; description = "You have successfully destroyed the AAF fastmovers that were tearing our NATO forces to pieces.

The DisableAI makes it so that there is no AI on the playable slots while in the Mutliplayer lobby, but depending how your mission/campaign is setup maybe you might not want that option - since if you don't get enough people you may still want your playable squadmates to be filled with ai? The last part works on the loadscreen thing where it will say it is Coop Mission or something. I hope this was of some help, but I have no Idea how to make it where when you chose the campaign it automatically opens up the server browser like how the Apex Protocol campaign was, maybe we cannot do something like that since maybe the apex protocol system is built-in to arma itself.

  14. Thanks, this is what I was looking for... but I did find some heads but at least with this will allow me to know how many heads there are and for the heads for the asian CSAT forces.
  15. K, I will check that out. Thanks. edit: That doesn't really help after looking through it the only apex related head I found was the syndikat boss head which wouldn't really work. edit2: I found it looking through the cfgHeads in the config browser for tanoa heads it's: TanoanHead_A3_01 not sure how many heads, now ill just have to play around till I get the head I want and for speaker it's: MALE01FRE
