JIP players can't ping Zeus unless they respawn
Need More Info, NormalPublic


When we are using our clan training base to train our members our instructors sometimes have difficulties pinging Zeus. The Zeus interface simply doesn't open for them. This started happening after the 1.56 update as far as I could look up. I also believe this has been tested without running any mods.

  1. When the instructors are present before the mission is started they can ping Zeus and the Zeus interface opens normally.
  1. If an instructor joins when the mission is already running Zeus can't be pinged and the Zeus interface doesn't open. He has to use the Respawn option from the menu before he is able to ping Zeus and use the Zeus interface.

The mission does make use of some mods but not that many, being MBG Killhouses and Boeing C-17. We are also sure we have correctly placed the Game Master modules for all the instructors. To see if it would fix anything we even synced the Game Master modules with the instructors.

The server itself runs mods too but we don't think these are involved with this odd behaviour. Mods running on there are CBA, ASDG JR, ASR AI3, C17A3, MBG Killhouses, RH Accessories pack, RH M4/M16 pack, RH Pistol pack, TPW AI Suppression System and sometimes ACE3. All mods are running their latest versions.

I just would like to inform Bohemia this issue still remains with version 1.64.

thank you for the feedback. Could you please tell me how you have the GM module set for the instructors? Are you using the Owner ID or are you syncing the GM module to the unit?

I placed two GM modules. One for each person who needs to be able to access Zeus.

I added the names of the units in the modules and synced each of them to the unit that needs to use it.
