  1. Hello, I am looking for a solution for spawning a flashbang effect, possibly on a marker, invisible helipad or possibly using any other way that works best and can be customized for future use. So far I was trying to spawn the grenade using the createVehicle command and getting a position of a marker. Two problems I have are: - Flash/stun grenades do not explode on spawn, they appear for a few seconds and then disappear entirely (I've checked smoke as well as frag grenades and those two do work fine) - The command spawns a literal grenade which can be seen physically, whereas I am looking for it to either explode on spawn (for the grenade itself not to be seen) or for it to trigger only the effect instead. The command is supposed to be a supplement to door breaching on action and is supposed to affect AI as well. I believe that the effects of the ACE M84 grenades do, so that would be the ideal solution. Thanks for any suggestions! Adam
  2. Hello I want to spawn a icon on map after a trigger is fired i want to spawn the markers -> standard draw -> pickup (hd_pickup) i have looked thru the WIKI but have not found anything that helps me. any one who can give me the solution..
  3. Hi!, sry for my bad english, i am looking for a script to do : A training camp, with a Addaction start the training, then spawn "X" IA unit in random location inside, also a addaction where you can restart training or delete training,. I have the training camp , and the random location with marks, but idk how to spawn unit inside and how delete. anyone know a script or something for this pls?, Thanks you very muchS!!
  4. Hello, I'll try to make this as simple as possible: I'm wondering if there's a way to have a trigger disabled at first, and later enabled by another trigger. In other words, "spawn" a trigger. Imagine you're going through a corridor, nothing happens when you go to the end of the corridor. Then you head back and something happens on the way back. Example: Thanks in advance! :)
  5. Hello mates, I hope this is the right place to come to, cause I'm about to get chronical headaches from trying to solve this problem by myself. The last couple of days I'm spending some of my time overhaulin' a version of DUWS (Dynamic Universal War System), and most of the time everything worked like a charm. But right now I'm not able to find a solution for this problem I've ran into. To make my issue more clear, I'd like to be a little bit more specific, so maybe my helping hand is able to fully understand. In DUWS - I guess many of you know this mission - you are able to buy vehicles, units, squads etc. Since I'm reworking some parts of DUWS Unofficial from scratch - esspecially the units, vehicles and squads -, the one who made it in the first place delivered a very nice template for the things I wanted to do. The unofficial version of DUWS has build in mod support, like for RHS Escalation, etc. I have expanded this, by adding in support for some other mods like "Global Mobilization", "BWMod" and "FFAA" . You can play it vanilla, or with those mods. If you have the mods, you can buy the units and vehicles of those factions, if not, a little hint will pop up, telling you that the mod is missing - this is done by checking if the requested unit is available in the first place. Here is a little insight of how it looks for requested foot soldiers: The same goes for vehicles, of course... BUT... here comes my problem: I'm not able to get it to work for requested mod squads - like a fireteam, or a tank platoon. I mean I'm able to get the mod squads working of course, I can buy them and they are fully functional, but I want the game to check if this squad is available in the first place. Otherwise you will pay credits for nothing if the needed mod isn't installed. And since I'm planning to release this version someday, I really want to get this fixed and implemented. And here is a little insight of how it is defined for squads: (Original, only changed the squad and the faction) It's really driving me crazy. I'm no professional programmer, sure, I've learned and catched many things by myself, and I already tried to solve it by myself, but after many failed attempts I can't think of anything else then asking for help, cause I'm running out of ideas. If some mighty coding paladin would be so kind to point me in the right direction, or even take this template above me and make it functioning, I'd really, really appreciate it. I just want it to work like it works for units and vehicles, and I'm sure this is possible. But I can't figure it out. Well, enough said. Have a nice day folks, hope to hear from you! Regards, MajorBlunderbuss.
  6. Hello, i've come along some problems with my missions in multiplayer and now i'm wondering, if there are some workarounds for them. 1. sometimes players can't pick up items from dead bodys. this is a arma classic by now. any ideas how i can minimize the change of it happening? 2. sometimes a mobile spawnpoint (tent) is not available for certain players, while it is for others. also disconnecting and rejoining does not help for the client, who cannot see the spawn point. repacking and resetting the tent does not help either. any ideas? 3. animals (from the animals modules) either don't spawn in MP, or they do spawn but are completely static. i noticed that there are different animal modules, but i haven't had success with either of them. any ideas? i really need some sheep in my missions! 4. the first shot fired from the new VLS on the liberty destroyer doesnt't work. there is a sound and VLS reloads, but the missile does not actually show. the second shot and following shot seem fine. it's not a game-breaker but a bit of an imemrsion killer... 5. not a real issue, but i will add this here, instead of making a seperate thread: a player that entered ZEUS mode, will still have some UI on his screen, even when he leaves ZEUS (i think it is the ticket counter on the right, if i remember correctly). is there a way to limit ZEUS UI to the time actually being in ZEUS mode? thanks for you help:)
  7. Currently using createVehicle to spawn an object under certain conditions. I'm wondering how to create a variable name once it has spawned.
  8. Problem is that even though players can select the respawn position (using Respawn Position module) upon entering the server, they are are spawning on map edge instead. I've used this method successfully in other ops and cannot see what could be causing this. Respawn Position settings Type: Infantry Side: Blufor Show to: Only the side Notification: Disabled //Description.ext respawn = "BASE"; respawnButton = 1; respawnDelay = 5; disabledAI = 1; respawnTemplates[] = {"MenuPosition","Spectator"};
  9. EDIT: Solved. Add waitUntil {triggerActivated StartSpawn}; for "_i" from 1 To 4 do { to the start of the .sqf to limit the number of loops and add sleep 600; to the end, like so: Trying to make an AI group spawn at 1 of 4 locations every 10 minutes when Opfor is present. Currently, Opfor enters condition area, a group spawns correctly, but it seems Opfor has to leave and re-enter the area to trigger another spawn. I want the trigger to loop continuously every 10 minutes so long as Opfor remains present. //Trigger //EnemyWest01.sqf
  10. hello guys, i've run into a strange problem and really have no idea where start to look for a solution! i've my big function container (its a big read, i post it just for the records...): ...it contains all my functions for this mission, but...when i launch mission, it start say that FUNCTION_NAME is not defined (where "FUNCTION_NAME" is the name of one of my functions, that as you can see are defined. i pre-load the file containing the functions in my initServer.sqf : call compile preprocessFile "DDscripts\DWARfunctions.sqf"; null = [] spawn SPAWNERconvoyB; null = [] spawn SPAWNERconvoyR; null = [] spawn SPAWNERciv; null = [] spawn SPAWNERind; null = [] spawn SPAWNERmine; even more strange, i noticed adding >> uiSleep 10; between a function spawn and another, some start to work!! i even started to think its like the functions are not pre-loaded, and server dont recognize them ! but isnt supposed to do this the >> calling compile preProcessFile ... ?? i'm seriously confused....any light on this? thanks !
  11. So I'm making a kind of "shooting range"-scenario with live targets. On one place, I want the players to have the possibility to spawn enemy units. Per now I have a laptop with Init -> I have a SpawnAI-module with VariableName "spawn1", synced with a trigger with condition ->"Spawned" - that starts spawning of 1 enemy AI. When he dies, a new one spawns after 15 seconds. But I can't figure out a 'temporary disable' function. Help?
  12. Hi! I'm having issues spawning in ACE3 IED's with pressure plate activation on. Currently there's 50 IED's that spawn in, they're simulated objects and should (?) work with pressure plate, yet they don't. Here's the faulty script: if (!isserver) exitwith {}; //Theres a marker called center in the middle of the map _centerMrk = "center"; _dist = 25000; _center = getmarkerpos _centerMrk; _counter = 0; _rDist = 5.75; // Objects used as IEDs _iedList = [ "ACE_IEDLandBig_Range", "ACE_IEDLandSmall_Range", "ACE_IEDUrbanBig_Range", "ACE_IEDUrbanSmall_Range" ]; while {_counter < 50} do { //Create position on map for IED _list = _center nearRoads _dist; _iedType = _iedList select (floor random (count _iedList)); _road = _list select (round random (count _list)); _roadDir = getDir _road; _newDir = _roadDir; _dir = _newDir; _pos = getpos _road; _posx = _pos select 0; _posy = _pos select 1; _tx = (_posx + (_rDist * sin(_dir))); _ty = (_posy + (_rDist * cos(_dir))); _iedPos = [_tx,_ty,0]; //Create IED _trgMan = createVehicle ["I_C_Pilot_F", _center, [], 0, ""]; _ied = createVehicle [_iedType, _iedPos, [], 0, ""]; _ied setDir (random 360); _ied setPos getPos _ied; //So far so good, this is where I have to add some type of way to trigger them because they dont work by themselves like if you place them with zeus [_trgMan, _ied, "PressurePlate"] call ace_explosives_fnc_connectExplosive; deleteVehicle _trgMan; //Add IED to list _counter = _counter + 1; }; If anyone with knowledge about ACE3 could help me out that'd be highly appreciated. //Green
  13. Hey everyone, I was recently thinking of some kind of ending cinematic to my mission. What I thought about was: 1. Wait until we're all done with the flow of the mission. Usually when the mission is done we gather up in a group to do a quick photo and a small debriefing, so we're technically still in the scenario. 2. When Zeus decides so, the mission would be switched to a cutscene. 3. If possible, a script would grab all the players who survived and put them in predefined places, for example next to some kind of building which was the last objective. 4. Those players would then play certain animations (lying on the ground, sitting, resting after a mission, waving, whatever stuff there is to choose from). 5. During those animations the camera would move a tiny bit here and there and probably show some kind of jet formation flying by. 6. Mission officially ends with the "Mission Complete" screen, some music plays in the background and bang, we're done. Do you think this is possible by any means? I think I would be able to figure out how to teleport the alive players to specific places and have them switchMove to animations, but not sure how to make the camera moving effect as well as how to make it work just after the mission, so to make it seem relatively smooth. If I recall correctly, there is an option in the Editor to choose Scenario, Intro and Outro so I think there's gotta be a way to make them transition between each other and achieve the aforementioned effect but I have no clue how to do that. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Eden_Editor:_Scenario_Phases I will be grateful for any kind of help in that regard. Thanks! Adam
  14. Hi , i am looking for a script to building a bunker in few minutes, i wanna do a place where you use a addaction "build defense", than you wait few minutes and spawn a bunker in a specific position,. If posible, also create a task at beginning building and suceedees task at end of the time. Can anyone help me pls¿?¿¿ Thanks you very much!!
  15. hello guys, i made a script to spawn/de-spawn AI in a bubble around players, but on long run times (my aim is to make it run at least 24h) server crash with this error : 0xC0000005 - STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION after investigating, appears that is a generic error, there is no solution, and probably linked to memory leaks. i tried 100% vanilla server and 100% vanilla client, and server crash in few hours. considering that the server does not crash (24h+) if noone enters....and that the only script difference is that "AI bubble" around players does not spawn any units if there are no players, i take a wild guess and suppose its the "AI bubble" script causing this. here is the script: in init.sqf: call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "DDscripts\Dbubble.sqf"; null = [] execVM "DDscripts\DambientSPAWN.sqf"; and here is the DambientSPAWN.sqf: this actually works perfectly for few hours (from 1h to 4h usually), then the crash... So i'm doing something "wrong"...and i mean unefficient or causing leaks ? the goal (if possible) it to leave no trace in the memory or in the game itself of the units created and then deleted, or at least minimize the impact on the system to make it run as long as possible. really thansk for any help!
  16. I'm having trouble checking if a player has fully loaded in before exec my script. Using this is working but runs before player has fully loaded in: if not(hasInterface) exitWith {}; waitUntil {!isNull Player}; waitUntil {player == player}; [] spawn { disableSerialization; waitUntil {! (isNull (findDisplay 46))}; if (player nearObjects["Debug_static_F", 25] isEqualTo[]) then // If player not in debug box { _useCinemaBorders = true; showCinemaBorder _useCinemaBorders; _fg = ppEffectCreate ["FilmGrain", 2000]; _fg ppEffectEnable true; _fg ppEffectAdjust [1,20,8,50,50,true]; Camrunning = true; // set to false to stop the camera _radius = 5; // circle radius _angle = 180; // starting angle _altitude = 5; // camera altitude _dir = 0; //Direction of camera movement 0: anti-clockwise, 1: clockwise _speed = 0.04; //lower is faster _duration = 15; // In seconds. Higher number = intro takes longer _cameratarget = position player; private ["_nvg"]; call { if (dayTime > 17 or daytime < 6) exitWith { _nvg = true; }; // If above does not exit, set _nvg true _nvg = false; }; camUseNVG _nvg; _coords = [_cameratarget, _radius, _angle] call BIS_fnc_relPos; _coords set [2, _altitude]; _camera = "camera" camCreate _coords; _camera cameraEffect ["INTERNAL","BACK"]; _camera camPrepareFOV 0.700; _camera camPrepareTarget _cameratarget; _camera camCommitPrepared 0; while {Camrunning} do { _coords = [_cameratarget, _radius, _angle] call BIS_fnc_relPos; _coords set [2, _altitude]; _camera camPreparePos _coords; _camera camCommitPrepared _speed; waitUntil {camCommitted _camera || !(Camrunning)}; _camera camPreparePos _coords; _camera camCommitPrepared 0; _angle = if (_dir == 0) then {_angle - 1} else {_angle + 1}; [_duration, _camera, _fg] spawn { _duration = _this select 0; _camera = _this select 1; _fg = _this select 2; uiSleep (_duration - 0.3); _camera cameraEffect ["terminate","back"]; camDestroy _camera; ppEffectDestroy _fg; }; }; }; }; Need the script to run once the player is visual and has a true position. Its circling around an invisible object and in an location thats not true. Script was made in editor then transfered to a dedicated server. All is work apart from the script runs before the player is created. The devs at desolationredux gave me a hint I need these conditions checked first but now script wont run at all ? while {true} do { if (!isNull player) then { isPlaying = player getVariable ["DS_var_isPlaying", false]; if (isPlaying) exitWith { MY CODE }; }; sleep 1; }; This is what was used when the script wouldn't run at all : if not(hasInterface) exitWith {}; [] spawn { disableSerialization; waitUntil {! (isNull (findDisplay 46))}; while {true} do { if (!isNull player) then { isPlaying = player getVariable ["DS_var_isPlaying", false]; if (isPlaying) exitWith { { _useCinemaBorders = true; showCinemaBorder _useCinemaBorders; _fg = ppEffectCreate ["FilmGrain", 2000]; _fg ppEffectEnable true; _fg ppEffectAdjust [1,20,8,50,50,true]; Camrunning = true; // set to false to stop the camera _radius = 5; // circle radius _angle = 180; // starting angle _altitude = 5; // camera altitude _dir = 0; //Direction of camera movement 0: anti-clockwise, 1: clockwise _speed = 0.04; //lower is faster _duration = 15; // In seconds. Higher number = intro takes longer _cameratarget = position player; private ["_nvg"]; call { if (dayTime > 17 or daytime < 6) exitWith { _nvg = true; }; // If above does not exit, set _nvg true _nvg = false; }; camUseNVG _nvg; _coords = [_cameratarget, _radius, _angle] call BIS_fnc_relPos; _coords set [2, _altitude]; _camera = "camera" camCreate _coords; _camera cameraEffect ["INTERNAL","BACK"]; _camera camPrepareFOV 0.700; _camera camPrepareTarget _cameratarget; _camera camCommitPrepared 0; while {Camrunning} do { _coords = [_cameratarget, _radius, _angle] call BIS_fnc_relPos; _coords set [2, _altitude]; _camera camPreparePos _coords; _camera camCommitPrepared _speed; waitUntil {camCommitted _camera || !(Camrunning)}; _camera camPreparePos _coords; _camera camCommitPrepared 0; _angle = if (_dir == 0) then {_angle - 1} else {_angle + 1}; [_duration, _camera, _fg] spawn { _duration = _this select 0; _camera = _this select 1; _fg = _this select 2; uiSleep (_duration - 0.3); _camera cameraEffect ["terminate","back"]; camDestroy _camera; ppEffectDestroy _fg; }; }; }; }; }; }; sleep 1; }; Any help to what I doing wrong would be amazing ! Cheers
  17. I have a mission where you have to backtrack where you came from and I would like more enemies to spawn along the path with a saved Arsenal loadout that I have when you complete a specific task. Is there a way to do this? I do have the Eden Enhanced mod
  18. Hello, I have seen numerous post about this issue, but can't seem to find a solution that actually works. So here is my problem. I have a classic sector game which I play alone or with a friend, against or with each other. Each side (Bluefor and Opfor) have a squad a player can take over and control. Rest of the forces come from an AI spawn module. It all works perfectly except all the ai's spawned from the modules doesn't bleed any tickets on both sides when they are killed in action. It is only players and ai squad members that I know how to use bleed tickets with. But the Ai's from the module does not work, so it is sort of unbalanced. Please do anyone knows how to bleed tickets form ai spawn module? Script I use for the ai squad mebmers in unit init: this addEventHandler ["killed",{[_this select 0,-1,true] call bis_fnc_respawnTickets;}];
  19. Disclaimer** I do not post on forums often so I apologize if this is in the wrong spot. I have looked everywhere for something that will spawn missions automatically, like the missions spawn in most exile servers randomly. I have looked into MCC and I really love the mission setups, unfortunately there is no way (to my knowledge) to script this, it has to be done in person while in the gamel. I am looking for this to happen automatically while you are in the game. Any ideas?
  20. Hi, I searching for a way to spawn units randomly in a marker. I've tried something with radius etc but it seems that units spawn even out of the marker and even on water... I'd like to spawn those units only on ground and in the definided marker. And I have another problem, The units I try to spawn are zombies... And when I choose to spawn 2000 of them with a debug marker to know where each zombies are, I don't find any zombies at the markers positions... is there any units limit on Arma 3 ?
  21. Hello, I'm using this _costTable = compile preProcessFileLineNumbers "folder\costTable.sqf"; [[],_costTable] remoteExec ["spawn",zeusUnit,true]; (from initServer.sqf) to "send" a cost table from dedicated server to the player playing as Zeus. That little script works nicely at mission start: only units and other "Zeus assets" that are declared in the costTable.sqf are available to the Zeus (player). But for some reason the JIP functionality (which is declared with true) doesn't work. This leads to the point where a reconnecting Zeus player will have all the vanilla Arma 3 Zeus units and assets available since the server doesn't issue the cost table to this "JIP player" like it should. Or should it even? Any thoughts of a way to get the server to send the cost table to JIP Zeus player?
  22. Is there a way to randomly spawn the premade item groups in Eden? Example: I would like to be able to define a radius in which object groups will be randomly pulled from the list and randomly placed. ALIVE does some of this already, but with only a few items. If this is not possible, my follow up question would be: is it possible to set a spawn radius for a premade object group as if the group were a single object? Normally, Eden will set a spawn radius for each object in the group while not maintaining the objects relative position to each other.
  23. Hey guys, I am working on a training site for my group which will feature, among other things, an explosive specialist/mine defusal training. In order to do so I would like to create a kind of a course which has to be finished without the mines exploding. The help that I'm looking for concerns a script, obviously. I would like to have the option to spawn random(?) mines and explosives in random(?) areas within the designated course. Let's say it will be a fenced-out passage through a few buildings + a bit of grassy terrain. I would like to have the option to spawn, respawn randomly or at the very least restart the placed explosives within that course with probably a simple addAction command that would be attached to some object at the beginning of the course. I can handle the addAction button but I am almost completely unaware how to write the script which would respawn the explosives if the participant died and wanted to retry the course. That respawn option would also be used by the next person in the queue who would want to complete the course. I appreciate your help a lot. Cheers! Adam
  24. I have a function that i need to call when all the opfor is dead in a dynamically created trigger area. This function contains a sleep. I have tried all sorts of diff delays, all caused issues because i was using call in the dynamically created trigger statements. I have tried using a dynamically created trigger to create another trigger but for some reason it just kept creating triggers on load rather than after the opfor were dead. I have tried using spawn in both the int and the dynamically created trigger to fire the function for the first time. In the statement for the dynamically created trigger i used spawn to call the function that inevitably dynamically creates a new trigger. but for some reason like in my previous tests the trigger statement is getting activated on creation. i have been at this Arma 3 scripting for a week now and i keep running in to issues like this. I really could use some help on this.
  25. I'm hoping someone can help me with this. It's been a long time since I have worked on some missions in ARMA 3 and have never been that great with scripting. I couldn't find what I was looking for through searching the forums so... I am creating a mission where the players must repel an attack on their FOB (Vietnam era, so not a lot of night vision.). I want to create a regular interval of illumination flares to be spawned above the FOB as if a nearby FSB is supporting the base with illumination during the fight. I'm not quite sure how to go about doing this however.
