SUPPORT waypoint does not work.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The SUPPORT waypoint in the mission editor does not work. Every time support is requested there is a "Negative" reply with no name beside it.

Im not sure if this is something that just hasnt been implemented yet or weather it is a bug. {F18919}

Syncing the player and medic doesnt work either. Also the support option only appears if you have squad members. If you are solo the option will not be there.

Try 5 - 1 - 1.

Doesnt work with any number, all you get is a "negative" reply no matter what support option you choose. In Arma 3 Ambulance is listed as support option 2 when a medic is given a support waypoint.

Tried this right now. Placed a 2-man team (I am the leader) on the northern edge of the airfield, a medic on the southern edge and added a Support waypoint right in front of him. Preview, 5-1-1, he responds "Oscar mike" and runs towards me.

The reason you see only "Ambulance" in the support request menu is that the other strings are missing (we're adding them back right now). You should see all of them there after the fix, regardless of the units available for support.

Thanks chose, let me give it another try then.

EDIT: It is definitely working with 5-1-1 right now, sorry astaroth not sure why it did not work last time I tried it, I must have done something wrong in the editor. Keep up the good work jolly old chaps.

So this ticket can be closed?

Yes I think so MadDogX. The only problem now is the missing strings chose mentioned but thats another matter which he said are being added back now.

I had a look at closing this myself but I cant find an option under resolution, only "open".

Perhaps reporters are unable to pick a resolution when they close their ticket. I'll ask Astaroth about it.

In any case, I'll go ahead a close this one. :)
