Cannot use included mission params in MP
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The included mission params cannot be used outside of the SP editor

Every time I try to host a mission to test it I get
"ErrorMessage: Include file a3\functions_f\Params\paramWeather.hpp not found."


Legacy ID
Operating System
Windows 7
Steps To Reproduce

Create a basic mission with a description.ext containing:

class Params
#include "\a3\functions_f\Params\paramWeather.hpp"

#include "\a3\functions_f\Params\paramRespawnTickets.hpp"

Watch it crash on anything other than the SP editor

I've tried this in lates dev, it looks like

#include "\a3\functions_f\Params\paramWeather.hpp"

works now.

@sms for me with the repo above, 1.27.126636 produces "ErrorMessage: Include file a3\functions_f\Params\paramWeather.hpp not found."
Same as before

You're right. I've tried it incorrectly (in SP).

Can confirm. In my experience the issue is only present when hosting missions on dedicated server. Client hosted MP missions are able to use the predefined mission parameters. I assumed it was due to the idiosyncrasies of setting up a dedicated server. Our dedicated server uses arma3server.exe.

hi whenever i try to host the mission on both (lan and internet) my game crashes to desktop and getting the error: "Include file a3\functions_f\Params\paramWeather.hpp not found", i'm running latest version to-date also its the first time i experience such problem.

any solution would be appreciated.

I have the same problem in Win 10. Just reinstalled Arma 3 and crash with the same msg every time I attempt to start my server (non-dedicated, both LAN and Internet). I have ticket# 25701

I had the same problem. Try to remove the folder "MPMissions" in ...\...\steamapps\common\Arma 3\. Or just your latest Missions
It worked for me.

Hi dedmen, I do not feel that adding this to the dev branch counts as resolving the issue as there is no Linux dev branch. Would you please release a new Linux dev build?

Then maybe wait till release, or maybe performance profiling branch. But the underlying issue is fixed, even if not available to you yet.

Fixed: #include in description.ext was failing on files outside of a scenario's PBO - FT-T77179

The 2.0 linux server release continues to report that #include "\a3\functions_f\Params\paramWeather.hpp" is missing for malden defense.

@Lyme please make a new report
