Grats on new version!

Added by Woodstock over 6 years ago

Only had time for a quick look but the new version looks great. Those hinds are awesome.

Will get down to some serious testing tomorrow!!

Thanks again for all your hard work on this.

Thanks :-) I'm especially happy with the new AI script, which is so much better than the previous goto-ridden one.

I just found out I forgot to add the Mi24's to the AI air team, but it's fixed now.

New version is giving me problems with the 1.08 of ACE. It gives an error with ace_config_men ace_config_Vehicle and ace_sys_crewserved.

I figured by "on the same day as the ACE release this time ;-) " it was compatible, but I guess not.

Well, I don't get errors with ACE 1.08. What errors do you get exactly (and where and when)?

RE: Grats on new version! - Added by Lap over 6 years ago

It's the standard error on loading a map when you don't have an addon. It specifically said those three files I mentioned. I went to make sure those files were all there and they were definitely with the rest of the ACE files as they should be.

Any you're sure you're running with ACE 1.08? Because some stuff from ACE 1.08 was added (like Hinds) and thus required by the mission. Over here it's all working fine.

Anyone else experiencing these problems?

Newly installed bad ram looks to be the problem. All extracted files from the 1.08 update were the correct size, but were filled with almost all "1"'s. Same as many other files since I recently installed them. Sucks to be me, but not you since your latest version was not to blame. Thanks for quickly getting back to me and trying to help out.

I'm guessing there's no way to play it singleplayer and save it, is there? I keep getting about an hour in and then something comes up and I need to shut down the server.

RE: Grats on new version! - Added by Woodstock over 6 years ago

There's no way to save unfortunately, however if you can run it as a dedicated server you can run in persistant mode which means the mission keeps running even when you're not logged in. You can log in and out as needs be, I've had games running 24 hours and more this way.

/edit: and no problems encountered yet btw Doomguy. Running very smooth and stable for around 6 hours in total so far on my server.

Only thing I've noticed so far is that the Opfor are still recruiting the BIS SLA guys as specops. I know this is an ACE issue, I'm guessing they're planning on just using the proper spetznaz units coming in Arma 2.

If you want a temporary fix you could use the 2 ACE Russian infantry guys labelled 'Sniper' and 'Spotter' as they wear the soft jungle hats which would distinguish them, not sure how their loadout is though. Or you could use VDV recon guys instead of spetznaz I guess. Not exactly the same thing I know but it would do as a temporary solution and you'd have a good excuse to build an AI team around the BMD-1Ps!
