  1. I found this thread of Arma2 from 2009 which asks the very same question. Now I must say I haven't tried this yet but, I wonder upon the release of Eden update if there are better alternatives given sync seems to have been sort of discontinued (I'm a Mission Editor amateur so I don't know if sync still actually exists.) or if simply there are better methods as of 2016's Arma 3 capabilities unlike A2 from 2009. Assurance of A2's method and possible alternatives are welcome. Thanks in advance.
  2. Anyone had similar issues? OB suddenly stopped loading textures. Bulldozer preview was configured 100% fine and working and then just stopped loading model textures on all models. I tried re-installing , verifying , double checking textures paths , double checking the default texture folder P:\ is set, as it was when it was working and then just this: sometimes this , with some visual artifacts No textures, strange lines instead of smooth gray mesh (if textures are not set). The only things I've noticed in the logs that it has some error logged: Invalid module. Missing link to InitPluginModule function (127) Have no idea if it was there before, never checked since everything was working. That's it. ObjectBuilder.log - https://pastebin.com/i33X5FKQ
  3. Is there any good way to imitate arrays with action on dialogs? I have this right now: action = "player addMagazine ""20Rnd_762x51_Mag"";"; It works 'n' all, but I was trying to make it add more than just one magazine to the player. Is this possible without using execVM to execute a script elsewhere?
  4. SPOILERS INCOMING FOR THE FIRING FROM VEHICLES SCENARIO!!! Is there an easy way to add hostages to your mission in the same way as the firing from vehicles hostages? Where they had the nice animation and you had to use the BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd action to release them? If not, how do I tie the animations together so nicely like they did there? Currently struggling with getting the animations nice n smooth. Thanks!

    I was searching up how to set up a custom bind that would execute some code. I was able to find code which did exactly what I want it to do with some editing, but I have no idea how any of it works. The code is this: waitUntil {!isNull(findDisplay 46)}; (findDisplay 46) displaySetEventHandler ["KeyDown","_this call keyspressed"]; keyspressed = { _shift =_this select 2; _handled = false; switch (_this select 1) do { case 35: {//H key if (_shift) then { player action ["SwitchWeapon", player, player, 100]; }; }; }; _handled; }; I generally can read this and understand what it is doing. This makes it so that when I click shift+h it executes the player action, I can understand the case 35 is the H key with DIK KeyCodes, but how does this script know that you need to press the shift key as well?
  6. I have created a script an assigned arma 3 weapon classnames to different variables, like this: _sg_mk1 = "srifle_DMR_03_F"; _sg_mk1Mags = "20Rnd_762x51_Mag"; I have then made an addAction and put it on an ammo crate so that when you click mk-I you will get the weapon in the variable above. Like this: _crate = sg_classes; _crate addAction ["MK-I", _sg_mk1, _sg_mk1Mags]; I have made it like this for flexibility, instead of changing everything I can change one classname in a variable to edit the outcome of your option. There is an issue though when I go in-game and scroll down on the crate I see MK-I, but when I click it I get the following error: '|#|srifle_DMR_03_F' Error Undefined Variable in expression: srifle_dmr_03_f So my question is how would I properly go about assigning classnames to variables and then have the variables be put in an addAction to give players the items.
  7. I have set up a dialog with some buttons. With one of the button I have made an Action like this: action = [] execVM "sg_places\sg_og.sqf"; I have checked so many times and that is definitely the correct directory to reach that sqf. Directory: teleport.hpp (the dialog with buttons) >> sg_places (folder) >> sg_og.sqf Is there anything else that can cause this error, because it should find the file it is definitely pointing in the right direction.
  8. Hello, I'm trying to remove vegetation in an area for a composition loaded with the debug console. I can only execute the script from my client since I don't have access to the server files. { _x hideObject true } foreach (nearestTerrainObjects [_newObject,["BUSH"],50]); This code works for my client but the rest of the server can still see the vegetation. Also if I reconnect the vegetation would reappear. { waitUntil {!isNull _newObject}; { _x hideObject true } foreach (nearestTerrainObjects [_newObject,["BUSH"],50]); } remoteExec ["spawn", 0, True]; DarleneWhale on /r/armadev wrote me this which should've executed the code on all clients with JIP set to true. Unfortunately, I've hit a bump since the vegetation still doesn't disappear for the players nor me with this code. Does anybody know how I can execute the HideObject command locally so the vegetation disappears for all players on the server including the players that join/reconnect? Any help would be much appreciated.
  9. Hi guys, I need a little script that makes hat or helmet fly off when unit shot in head. I know I saw a video of this once, so somebody has scripted it. But I just did a search and can't find anything. I can write one, but if one exists already that will save me an hour or so (and I'm putting all my time into polishing up new Razing Cane mission).
  10. Does anyone have the ArmA 2: OA colour corrections? I want to have the same lighting in CUP terrains as you did in Operation Arrowhead with the module. Someone saw the post and sent me a substitue: "colorCorrections"ppEffectEnable true; "colorCorrections"ppEffectAdjust[0.9,1,0,[0.1,0.1,0.1,-0.1],[1,1,0.85,0.4],[1,0.1,0,0]]; "colorCorrections"ppEffectCommit 0;
  11. I'm trying to write a script that involves setting the colour of the praetorian CIWS turret to the "sand" paint-job available in the garage menu. I understand how setObjectTexture works but can't figure out how to use getObjectTextures. I have a sand coloured CIWS placed down in zeus; what command would I use to see what the name of the texture is so I can incorporate it into my script? the example on the wiki runs fins but doesn't return a hint or anything. EDIT: Problem solved. In the eden editor, when changing a vehicles appearance, there is an "export" button which provides a script which spawns a vehicle of the selected colour.
  12. hello guys, its with immense happiness, that after YEARS of problems, i can finally mark as solved a problem that was plaguing me (and my unit, my friends, and many other people), the infamous "SESSION LOST" error, and relative disconnection! in years (and i mean YEARS) of research, of asking BIS support (thay tried to help, but without luck) and even Battleye support (they never answered, shame on them), i finally found (for pure luck) what seems to be one of the causes (because there are many causes for the same error, yes), probably the most unknown one. on my server i was using LAN cable, so attached to onboard nework adapter integrated on motherboard, but had also a wifi usb antenna to access server also from wireless... seems that having 2 network systems caused the problems, was not relevant if i used cable or wifi , the simple fact of having 2 was the problem! disabling one of the two (i tried both way) solved the problem!! for future reference , other causes , way more common, are : -mods not matched on server-client -an error in the arma3 cache. so all the working solutions i found (each for its own cause of the problem) are: 1) disabling one of the (more than one) real network adapter cards in the network settings probably problem with win10 is that as of update 1603 the network-order has been removed and you cannot priorize a card anymore you will have to manually disable all of the adapters that are not in use. 2) Reboot your PC, when it boots up, don't open anything copy this into a text file, save, then rename WipeArma3cache.bat rmdir "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Arma 3\" /s /q ...and run it. 3) match EXACTLY the server mods, so that client and server run ALL the same mod, same versions. hope this saves people years of problems, losing community around servers, and many ARMA3 friends (gone to other games for this problem). this is the maniphest ticket of this problem: https://feedback.bistudio.com/T128085
  13. I am currently in the process of making a GUI that allows you to customize the pylons of a plane. Everything works up until this one part. (This is not the only thing in the GUI, just one function). params["_indexWeapon"]; _weaponToEquip = currentWeapons select (_indexWeapon + 2); _planeToEquip = currentObject; _pylonToEquipIndex = currentPylonNum + 1; systemChat str _pylonToEquipIndex; systemChat str _planeToEquip; systemChat _weaponToEquip; (_planeToEquip) setPylonLoadOut [_pylonToEquipIndex, _weaponToEquip, true, []]; For some reason, in the setPylonLoadOut, the _weaponToEquip does not work. So say it equals "PylonRack_1Rnd_AAA_missiles". I get the error in game, "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgMagazines."PylonRack_1Rnd_AAA_missiles"'. But if I change the code to, (_planeToEquip) setPylonLoadOut [_pylonToEquipIndex, "PylonRack_1Rnd_AAA_missiles", true, []]; It works if I use that code. I can't seem to figure out why this is and what a fix for it might be. If anyone has any ideas why this is and what a fix might be, I will be extremely grateful for your input. Thanks in advance!
  14. Hey all, I need some help with creating a trigger which produces an image on the players screen for a few seconds and plays some sound affects. Trying to produce a hallucination or flashback affect. What I think needs to happen is have in the trigger (on activation) null = [] execVM "images\flashback.sqf"; playmusic "example1"; or playsound "example1"; But I am not sure what to put in the flashback.sqf to make the image display. I am new to scripting so any help would be awesome. Peace TPM
  15. I'm trying to count everyplayer that's playing as OPFOR. My counting script does not throw any errors, however the hint script doesn't recognizes _AllPrisoner. Obviously i'm doing something wrong and i hope someone can help me. _allplayers = allPlayers; _allPrisoner = {if (side _x == east) then {_allPrisoner = _allPrisoner + _x};} forEach _allplayers; hint format ["Test%1",_allPrisoner ];
  16. Hello, I am looking for a SIMPLE score system that I could use in my Deathmatch maps. I wan't no "kill streak", no "best player" of what so ever, just a simple score system that could collect the amount of kills that a player is getting and that will stop the game when limit it reached. I guess you can do this with "eventhandlers" but I'm clearly not an expert in Deathmatchs so ... Please help me :)
  17. Hello everyone i'm trying to create a unit that spawns in a vehicle and goes to a random location. But when i spawn the unit with createvehicle it won't move... *I tried waypoints and domove* I've done a lot of trial and error and can't figure it out. It's probably something very stupid since i'm not that familiar with scripTing in general. this is my code that is being called with an addaction: _Location = [] call BIS_fnc_randomPos; _Road = [_Location, 1000, []] call BIS_fnc_nearestRoad; _Destination = getPos _Road; _group = createGroup civilian; _AI = nil; _AI2 = nil; _AI3 = nil; _Pass = selectrandom [1,2,3]; _AIChoose = selectRandom ["C_man_1","C_man_polo_1_F_euro","C_man_polo_6_F_euro","C_Nikos_aged","C_Nikos_aged","C_man_sport_1_F_afro"]; _VEHChoose = selectRandom ["C_Offroad_01_F","C_Offroad_01_repair_F","C_Truck_02_covered_F","C_Truck_02_transport_F","C_Hatchback_01_F","C_Hatchback_01_sport_F","C_SUV_01_F","C_Van_01_transport_F","C_Van_01_box_F","C_Van_01_fuel_F","C_Offroad_02_unarmed_F"]; _veh = createVehicle [_VEHChoose, position Pris1, [], 0,""]; //Add passengers _AI = createVehicle [_AIChoose, position Pris1, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE"]; _AI setBehaviour "Aware"; _AI doMove (_Destination); _AI enableSimulation true; if (_Pass > 1) then { _AIChoose = selectRandom ["C_man_1","C_man_polo_1_F_euro","C_man_polo_6_F_euro","C_Nikos_aged","C_Nikos_aged","C_man_sport_1_F_afro"]; _AI2 = createVehicle [_AIChoose, position Pris1, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE"]; _AI2 setBehaviour "Aware"; _AI2 enableSimulation true; }; if (_Pass > 2) then { _AIChoose = selectRandom ["C_man_1","C_man_polo_1_F_euro","C_man_polo_6_F_euro","C_Nikos_aged","C_Nikos_aged","C_man_sport_1_F_afro"]; _AI3 = createVehicle [_AIChoose, position Pris1, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE"]; _AI3 setBehaviour "Aware"; _AI3 enableSimulation true; }; //Add Movein _AI moveInAny _veh; if (_Pass > 1) then { _AI2 moveInAny _veh; }; if (_Pass > 2) then { _AI3 moveInAny _veh; }; I hope someone can help me with this rookie problem.

  18. Hey Guys, So im trying to setup a dedicated server also to play on with my group. I use Ubuntu server and get the following problem when i load the mission: Even tho the mods are loaded: I made all files small letters already (removed capitals) and this is my startup line: ./arma3server -mod="mods\@cba_a3;mods\@cupterrainscore;mods\@cupterrainscwa;mods\@cupterrainsmaps;mods\@lingordingorisland;mods\@rhsafrf;mods\@rhsgref;mods\@rhssaf;mods\@rhsusaf;mods\@task_force_radio;" -port=2302 -name="FisherServer" -config="server.cfg" The folders contain the PBO files that are in the error, I tried to fix it for 5 hours already :/ Anyone have an idea where this is going wrong?
  19. Hi all. I am currently trying to make use of the parameters to dynamically add tickets to the Respawn Tickets Module so that players can adjust the number of tickets for their own session to control their overall time-frame. Currently, how the game works is based on sector Bleeding rather than actual respawn. Basically when sectors are taken to a certain percentage, the tickets will start bleeding. So player respawn isn't taken into account for the reduction in tickets. Module is set to 250 each per side, WEST, EAST. I used: // get the number from parameters // somehow get the difference, e.g. 500 - 250 = 250 if (isServer) then { [WEST, _difference] call BIS_fnc_respawnTickets; [EAST, _difference] call BIS_fnc_respawnTickets; }; But it seems that under a dedicated Server, the above command doesn't seem to reflect on all players, and most likely only on the server..... though I thought the command is supposed to work on a global level. And testing it out of the isServer if else statements, it resulted in additional of more tickets every time a player joins..... So I was wondering if anyone is able to explain how that function works or if I have used the wrong combinations... or I should have used either just the module or the function command. Thanks.
  20. I have been trying to remove the group information from the caller part of '_this ' e.g. "B Alpha 1-1:1". I am trying to use splitString to split the string when it gets to a bracket as the whole string returned is "B Alpha 1-1:1 (Username)" The code I have so far is _caller = (_this select 1); _caller splitString "("; Hint format["%1 is an absolute idiot!",_caller select 1]; The error I get is about splitString expecting a string but receiving an object. I tried looking up a way to change an object to a string but had no luck. I'm extremely new to SQF (I started learning today) and any help with this would be appreciated.
  21. Im a guy comming from mission-scripting and have been there for a while. I have now made a simple client-side gui controls script. The actual purpose of this script was coded with the "mission-file" context in mind. Now people asked me if i couldnt upload it to the steam workshop for easier installation and convenient use. I did some research on this but i cant fint anything relevant anywhere. Is is possible to pack a single script in an workshop-addon and expect it to load on every mission that it is executed with? When yes, how do i perform this?
  22. If I post what I currently have for my description.ext and init.sqf, can someone rewrite them to actually work? I can't get the loadouts to show up when I go to spawn in on my mission. I am losing my mind trying to figure this out.
  23. Hey all, I'm trying to create a mission where the independent faction is treated as captive until they pick up a weapon, and then treated as an enemy until they drop the weapon again. I'm pretty new to the scripting side of the mission editor entirely, but this is the basic line I'm working with (which currently makes the AI not shoot you on sight). But I'm putting the following into the player's init. if (player hasweapon null) then (player setcaptive true); That line actually works when I have the default in-editor setcaptive option off, the problems start when I try to tack anything else onto it. if (player hasweapon null) then (player setcaptive true) else (player setcaptive false); Main example: this line doesn't work, and the AI always shoots on sight, regardless of what the player spawns with. { sleep 5; while {alive player} do { if (player hasweapon null) then (player setcaptive true) else (player setcaptive false); }; }; Ideally, I'd want something like this to continuously check if the player is armed or not, but it has the same effect as the above.
  24. Hello As the title might suggest, i am trying to find a elevated position near the objectiv. I am creating a function that will place waypoint the highest point close to the objectiv, so that i can have AI sniper group/ recon group overwatch on higher ground. The way i intended to do it was to get some locations around the position, but i dont know how i would sort the array by height. The script: _reconSort = []; for "_i" from 1 to 360 do { _testpos = [_pos, random [100,200,500], _i] call BIS_fnc_relPos; _reconSort pushBack _testpos; }; _reconSort apply {[_x distance _grp, _x] }; Any help would be appreciated.
  25. Hello, For some reason, my Healing system is not working when the player's legs are hit .......... Can someone help ? While {True} Do { WaitUntil {Alive Player;}; Sleep 1; While {(damage player) < 0.1} Do { Sleep 1; }; Heal_Act = Player AddAction ["<img size='1.0' color='#FFFFFF' image='Images\heal_ca.paa'/>","Heal_System\Action.sqf",[],-100,False,True,"",""]; Player SetDamage 0.26; While {(Damage Player != 0.25) And Alive Player} Do { Sleep 0.1; }; Player SetDamage 0; Player RemoveAction Heal_Act; };
