Component: Affected Version:487
Close Reason:


I have created a mission on the Panthera2 island included with the @UOMODS mod, updated with Six Updater from the United Operations repository as at the date of this issue. This island is listed here [[http://dev-heaven.net/issues/10121]] as being fully supported with the DAGR. the mission is based on the latest F2 framework.

Launched A2OA (+BAF +PMC) with Six Updater with the following string: c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\arma2oa.exe -noSplash -noPause -showScriptErrors -skipIntro -cpuCount=4 -maxMem=2048 -world=empty -window -mod="c:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\arma 2;Expansion;uomods\@JayArma2Lib;uomods\@CBA;uomods\@ACRE;uomods\@UOMods;uomods\@ACEX_USNavy;uomods\@ACEX;uomods\@ACE;uomods\@ACEX_RU". This is the standard UO modfolder setup.


Launched my mission as Preview from Multiplayer Editor, continued through briefing. Gear is set by script to include a DAGR.
Player is positioned at grid 01840672 (western end of the southwest airstrip). GPS reads 018067. DAGR reads 00180067. Error can be verified by manually entering a go-to waypoint 01840672, which the DAGR reads as being 6273m away bearing 164. This is consistent with the DAGR actually thinking it is at the 8 figure grid 00180067, which is in the top left of the map in the sea.


DAGR appears to be using the 6-figure grid as an 8-figure grid and appending a leading zero to each of the x and y coords. This is not simply a loss of precision, it is fundamentally placing the player at a wrong grid. it is also possible that Panthera has reverted and has broken 8-figure grids in the current release on the UO repository.


DAGR should read 01840672, and read 0 distance to 01840672 waypoint, as Panthera is supported for DAGR.

Have we send the author of the island in question the config fix or is this obsolete in the meanwhile?

Updated by Robalo about 4 years ago

Nope, never got around doing it, mainly because I don't use that island and it seems abandoned by the author.

Attached addon that fixes the grids for Panthera.
