  1. Hello, my question is : Is it possible to delete a respawn point OPFOR when a BLUFOR go into a trigger, I know how to create a respawn point with a trigger but I don't know if it's possible to do the reverse Thx for your help, And sorry if my English isn't good :/ PS: A second question : How to reserve a radio to the BLUFOR et an other to the OPFOR (For example; Alpha for BLUFOR et Beta for OPFOR) In other words I don't want that the Opfor use the radio of the Blufor ^^
  2. I just loaded up the 3D editor, and have been experimenting with the new objects. One of them is a Respawn Position object, which can be found under Systems > Modules > Multiplayer on the right side tab. I thought that maybe finally i'd be able to set up unit respawns without having to manually edit the description.ext. I placed one down, and synced it to the player unit, but there was no option to respawn when I killed myself in the mission. Even if I launched it into multiplayer from the editor. What are the purpose of these objects, and can I use them to make unit respawn locations?
  3. hello! i have a situation where i need to create a respawn marker, make all players and A.I. respawn, then delete the marker, so no more respawn are allowed. it works on players, but A.I. bots (all playable units) keep respawning also without a marker!! please help me stop this madness !! thanks !
  4. hello guys ! i searched all the forums and googled a lot, but still cannot find a solution to a very simple problem: i need to respawn players and A.I. on command (trigger or script). the goal is to have a sort of 1-life round (where if you die you go spectator), but when objective is achieved, all must respawn (both friendly and enemys, both players and A.I.) ...i tried "respawn in waves" but its not working like this.....any idea how achieve this ? thanks guys !!
  5. I've made an addon that adds a texture to the texture list in "edit Vehicle Appearance" on the gryphon, but I can't figure out a way to keep the vehicle appearance and the pylon settings for the jet after respawn. Any ideas?
  6. Hello. I have following problem: I made mission. It should be without respawn. In Description.ext I tried respawn = 0 and even to not define respawn. The problem is that I don't want that Init.sqf executes if someone joins in progress. He should be a seagull if he joins in progress (respawn = "BIRD" not worked, init.sqf executes anyway) and Init.sqf should not be executed on his machine. Is there some way to prevent this?
  7. I'm not sure if this is where this goes but Iv been searching for the past two days and I cannot seem to find an answer. Is there a way to make weapons respawn on the position they were placed after they have been picked up? Either with a timer or event or something, anything at all? Thanks in advance.
  8. Hey all. Perhaps you can help me with a problem. I've used the setObjectTexture command to great success on vehicles placed in EDEN, placing them and then putting something like setObjectTexture [0, "textures\police_heli.paa"]; in their init field. Bingo, the (in this case) helicopter is there, and it is wearing it's appropriate skin/texture. The problem is respawning. When the vehicle is destroyed, it respawns just fine (I am using the BIS respawn module in EDEN, linked to the vehicle in question). The problem is, that when the vehicle respawns, it respawns with a random skin/texture. Sometimes it's black, sometimes it's tiger-stripe, etc. I've searched the forums and google to no avail to try to fix this. All I want, is for when the vehicle is respawned, to have the same (custom) textures it started with.

  10. Hey first time posting on here so please forgive me if I don't supply all the information needed! Recently I've been making a team vs team mission that is based on the rush gamemode from battlefield games, but I've come across an issue when testing it on a dedicated server that has pretty much made it impossible to resume without having to restart everytime somebody joins. I'm using the RespawnTemplates: Menuposition and MenuInventory, I've set the inventory in the description and I've got revive working, but whenever somebody joins in progress they get stuck on the map screen with no menu to allow them to choose a position or a loadout. Either i'm doing something silly for this to occur or I've came across a bug but I've tried Reddit with no replies and I've tried searching on google for countless hours with no success of a solution. The only thing I've really got that would interfere with it I guess would be the InitPlayerLocal.sqf and OnPlayerRespawn.sqf but I'm not 100% sure on how to fix this which is why I'm here Map = 1; saving = 0; disabledAI = 1; joinUnassigned = 1; enableSentences = false; disableChannels[]={0,4,5}; OnLoadName = "WW2: Battle For Szydlow"; loadScreen = "pictures\background.jpg"; Author = "J. Doddsy (RaptorSKA)"; // Respawn respawn = 3; respawnDelay = 10; respawnDialog = 1; respawnOnStart = 1; respawnTemplatesWest[] = {"MenuInventory","MenuPosition"}; respawnTemplatesEast[] = {"MenuInventory","MenuPosition","Tickets"}; // Revive ReviveMode = 1; ReviveUnconsciousStateMode = 0; ReviveRequiredTrait = 0; ReviveRequiredItems = 2; ReviveRequiredItemsFakConsumed = 1; ReviveDelay = 10; ReviveMedicSpeedMultiplier = 2; ReviveForceRespawnDelay = 3; ReviveBleedOutDelay = 40; // Misc showCompass = 1; showGPS = 1; showWatch = 1; showNotePad = 1; // Optimisation: wreckLimit = 4; wreckRemovalMinTime = 60; wreckRemovalMaxTime = 120; Ingame when the player joins after launching the session, he'll sometimes get the menu but It's just a slight chance. The players I've had join say they can only see the map screen, they have physically spawned at the respawn location - once killed they are able to actually see the menu.. I'm sorry if this has already been solved, I only took a quick look at the forums to see if anything resembled my error but it's something I've been trying to fix now for about 2 weeks and I'm still having no luck with Reddit or Google. I've tried looking at respawnonstart -1; I've even removed respawnonstart and it actually started working slightly.
  11. Good Morning, for my SP/MP Mission i modified the script from Evo Dan's vehicle respawn script for vehilce respawn and made a new script for respawn AI Soldier-units. When the Chopper and the AI gets killed, the Chopper and pilot gets spawned at the Base, then the Pilot shall get in his specific vehicle. I have some more Pilots for CAS/EVAC/Halo/Support. My scripts are working, but my new Pilot doesnt know anymore where his old vehicle is, because the old vehicle got deleted and he didnt got the reference to the new vehicle. Here are my scripts, Vehicle Respawn Script: /* [EVO] Dan's vehicle respawn script modified by Steam-User immerfestedruv In the Unit Init Field insert <0 = [this,5] execVM "vehicle_respawn.sqf";> for example.

And is it useful to use the command setVehicleVarName/vehicleVarName in a Multiplayer/Internet/Singleplayer Mission? Another idea would be to not delete the vehicle but to repair it and move it to origin position. How to? regards EDIT: Link to my working but not finished and optimized script, unit_respawn.sqf vehicle_respawn.sqf
  12. PLEASE I am searching how to respawn with a choice of classes, for example when the player die he can choose one of the multiple classes (Sniper, Rifleman ..) But the problem is that I can't make a choice I have just the sniper... Sorry for my English I am french :/ I hope that my screens are going to better explain my problem ^^
  13. In the two different missions I made, players spawn either in the water, or floating underneath their spawn point. I'm using the respawn on location of death setting, in case that matters. One of the maps is Altis, the other is Winter Chernarus. Any way to fix this?
  14. Hello, Ive been trying to disable the role selection in the arma 3 respawn menu. Using this function : BIS_fnc_showRespawnMenuDisableitem I wanted to get something to work and then customize it from there. But i cant even get the example to work: ["disable",uiNamespace getVariable "BIS_RscRespawnControlsMap_ctrlRoleList",2,"Restricted for this part of mission!"] call BIS_fnc_showRespawnMenuDisableItem;
  15. I'm trying to get a vehicle that has three objects attached to it to respawn with the objects attached to it. In this case its a UGV Stomper that has an ammo crate and two fuel pods attached with the attachto command. I have the drone synced to a vehicle spawn point and it respawns correctly. The objects that are attached do NOT respawn at all even after syncing them to the vehicle respawn point. So, how do I get those objects to respawn and reattach themselves to the drone after the drone is destroyed and respawns?
  16. since patch 1.68 users of my CTI mission Cold War do claim errors with revive/respawn. If they use my mission on a dedicated server and enter admin command #missions the server crashes with an error message "a3/fuctions/param_revive" ... yadda, yadda I do use parameters/settings for revive/respawn following the official wiki. I really loose soon my temper with a3 and BI developers, literally every patch they manage to fuck something up that previous did work flaweless.
  17. Hey all, Is there a way to hide the marker created by the "Respawn Position" module and "BIS_fnc_addRespawnPosition"? I've searched around a bit and could only find how to hide a normal marker using setMarkerAlpha. Thanks in advanced.
  18. Hello one more time chaps, The reason I'm disturbing you today is that I can't make respawn place. Every time I die the mission fails and I have to start it from the beginning but I'm peaty sure I made everything right. 1. Placed the playable characters 2. Made the empty marker and named it respawn_west ("west" - because I'm playing with NATO forces) 3. Opened the attributes > multiplayer and configured the "Respawn on Custom Position" It still doesn't work. Can anyone advise me something?
  19. I want to attach my units with dark blue lines to a respawn position module (f5), however I cannot get get it to work. To give you an example of what I mean: Here you can see the units are grouped and attached to one unit leader (light blue lines), but are also attached to the respawn position module (dark blue lines). If I add more units, which I need to do, I cannot add them to the respawn position module. I have tried holding CTRL whilst trying to drag a line between a unit to the respawn module, like I would to attatch them to a squad leader, but nothing. I have also tried holding ALT and doing the same, moving them ontop, etc, nothing. Can someone please tell me how I can attach new units to the respawn position module? Thank You.
  20. Hey guys, I am using the vehicle respawn script by Quicksilver and though its working fine for me I would like to get it to show a notification upon respawning the vehicle like the default BIS spawner does. This is the script: /* @filename: fn_vMonitor.sqf Credit: Tophe for earlier monitor script Author: Quiksilver Last modified: 23/10/2014 ArmA 1.32 Description: Vehicle monitor.

I have gone over it and tried various ways to get it to show a notification but to no avail. 0 = [this,30,FALSE,QS_fnc_vSetup02] spawn QS_fnc_vMonitor; Please, any help? thanks :)
  21. When i start creating an scenario and export to multiplayer. I can't change the attributes -> multiplayer so in other words. Can't place down a respawn point (interface also), can't toggle on the revive. the checkboxes are greyed out. Things that i do: - I verified allready. - Reinstall the game. - I send my mission file to a friend and he can change the attributes.
  22. Hello all. I'm trying to set up a simple Zeus template mission using the Nimitz as a base. I'm having issues with player and vehicle respawn. Player Respawn: I'm using the respawn module and have set the following parameters. My problem is players respawn under the carrier at ocean level. If I sync the players to the respawn module, they respawn where they die despite having the "respawn on custom position" selected. I've also tried setting an invisible heli pad as a respawn point but to no avail. What am I doing wrong? Vehicle Respawn: Vehicles respawn on their original position as they are supposed to however they start with their engine on as if I spawned them in the air even thought they are empty. Settings and screencap of the problem below. Any help is appreciated. Thanks. :)
  23. Hi all. I'm a total noob to Arma scripting (or scripting at all). I've read some tutorials, but still, nothing better than expirience. But, back to the point. I've been creating a MULTIPLAYER mission with Mobile HQ. I've done some testing with my friends, and generally most of things work, but there's this one issue I can't solve. Here's the code of the script I'm going to reference (the file name is mhq1.sqf and it is executed by execVM in init.sqf): MHQ1 is obviously a name of a marker I have set. mhq1 is the variable, name of object - SUV I have spawned in the editor. mhq1SpawnMarker is another marker I've put down in the base. The marker moving works fine. Now, when I am alone on the server and destroy the MHQ only one MHQ respawns. But then, when a friend of mine joins and we do the same, 2 of them spawn. If another friend join there are 3 vehicles spawning and so on. I've tried multiple variations of this code, including using remoteExec function, but no luck. I can't understand what's the issue, why this isn't working. I am aware that I could use a ready script from the net, but I'd like to learn scripting the way I'm doing it now instead of using other's work. Anyway, thans in advance for helping me out.

    How to set respawn tickets in Zeus

    So we r using Zeus for some Realtime coop missions while i m the editor, when i played offical mission,i found that "respawn tickets"stuff is a perfect way to enhance experience and substitution for the Zeus Coop mission. so how can i add the "respawn tickets"for every player while i already set a spawn point ? And if its done,will someone who used all his tickets get a "Freelook" status? Sorry for my poor eng :)
  25. I am creating a multiplayer mission where I want the players to choose from multiple respawn positions when they die. And I want the respawn positions to have custom names. This question was asked in 2015 but no answer was given (just a link to a now empty page). How do I use the MenuPosition feature to display custom names to the respawn positions? Any help is appreciated - thanx. So far I am using a trigger to complete a task and when activated the trigger has this code: [West, Medical_1] call BIS_fnc_addRespawnPosition; FYI - Medical_1 is the Building that will become available to respawn inside after the task is complete.
