EventHandler "Loaded" not firing
New, NormalPublic

Description

I am talking about https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3:_Event_Handlers/addMissionEventHandler#Loaded

I have added this to a mods init.sqf:
handle1 = addMissionEventHandler ["Loaded",{systemchat "BLAH"}];

After savegame load, the systemchat entry is not displaying. The event is not triggered, code is not starting. I think, the eventhandler is 100% broken.

I have seen some people reporting it.
Eg. https://forums.bistudio.com/forums/topic/157192-missioneventhandlerloaded-never-fired/

You would make modders/missionmakers lives way easier - because survival of savegames without that eventhandler is a tricky thing.

The EH works fine, I have just tested it. What you have to realise that no event handler will fire if you add it after event it supposed to monitor. This EH monitors loading of the game from save and you are adding it after the game loaded.

I suggest you create a function with preInit = 1; which will execute in pre init, so that when the game is loaded from save the EH exists.

It's working from preinit, thx.
