getInAction only played where target vehicle is local
New, NormalPublic


The vehicle entry and exit animations configured via manActions in a vehicle config (getInAction, getOutAction) are only played where the vehicle is local before the unit entered it.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Home, 10.0, Build 16299
Steps To Reproduce
  • Place a Quadbike
  • Place two Playable units
  • Preview the mission as local hosted MP server with one additional instance of Arma3 as client
  • With the localhost instance enter the Quadbike as driver
  • Observe the getin animation is played correctly on both instances
  • Exit the Quadbike
  • With the client instance enter the Quadbike
  • Observe you are instantly inside the vehicle
  • Observe that the remote client as seen from the localhost is playing the get in animations correctly.

Additional Information

I presume the error lies within changed behaviour in switchAction/switchMove:

It used to be that performing a ManAction via the switchAction scriptcommand broadcasted the effect to the entire network: Everyone would see the unit performing this manaction's animation state. Currently switchAction does not broadcast the effect across MP anymore.

Thank you for the report. I tested your steps to reproduce and I was able to see both host and client use the animation.
