Forgot to mention it not only happens in the Eden editor itself but also once you hit Preview, switch to another application/window (I use notepadd++ for example) while the mission is still running in preview and go back to the A3 window. Bang, moving circle cursor, A3 won't accept any input anymore!

I hope you were already able to reproduce it. It's getting more and more frustrating. Not a single addon loaded and once you come back from scripting (focus back to A3 window) you only see the mouse cursor as a moving circle when you are hovering over the A3 window but A3 does not accept any input anymore. Still able to close A3 by clicking the Windows close button (red X upper right corner) but that's the only input A3 accepts.

@razazel
I can't provide exact repro steps, that's the problem. It mostly happens when I preview the mission and go back and the A3 window has lost focus for some time because I rewrite a script in an external editor for example. Again, I'm not running A3 fullscreen but for editing always windowed.

99,9% of the missions played in MP are community made missions. If they cause crashes then you should find out why your game crashes (it's still the game which crashes not the community made mission).

How should the mission maker find out what causes the crash without having access to the engine?

Xeno added a comment to T78543: Init event doesn't fire after createVehicle.

Xendance... think about it again.

You add a "Init" eventhandler to an already created object (with createVehicle), thus init most likely was already triggered before addEventhandler ["init" gets executed.

someobject addEventHandler ["init"... is pretty much the most useless addEventHandler event in the series and the init event is only usable in configs.

The only thing which would make at least some sense would be something like "someclassname" addEventHandler ["init"... which could be added before an object gets created.

Xeno added a comment to T77735: Expand the bodyDisposeManager system to work with ai units.

Well, if you make addons/mods and missions then you'll spawn quite a lot of various classes during a mission (sometimes ten thousands of objects and not only CfgVehicles).

So what's also needed, beside removing dead objects, is some kind of FIFO system and some kind of time limit system.

First one would be something like, if 200 objects of class x exist (doesn't matter if alive or not) then if object number 201 is spawned remove the first spawned object.
Second one would be something like object x will be deleted after 600 seconds, no matter if it is still alive or not (for alive vehicles some kind of check would be needed if the crew is still alive, if so, don't delete the vehicle yet).

What's not so nice about (non playable) AI disposal currently is that the weapons won't get deleted. Means, the dead AI unit vanishes but the weapon will remain and stay on the ground (and launchers are standing on the ground, bug). So a mission maker has to take care about removing those weapon holders again. A not wanted side effect.

That's how it always was. The mission maker has to make sure that the correct leader gets selected after respawn again.

Though this should finally get improved.

Edit: I guess it's related to rank and rating. If a second unit in the group has a higher rating and the same rank it'll be selected as leader when the leader dies. But like written, that's just a guess.

The BIKI is not always correct. Don't forget that it is not maintained by BI staff but mostly by normal users.

Anyway, this is only possible with the mentioned getInMan and getOutMan eventhandlers. But like so many things, we probably won't see them in the Arma series.

Xeno added a comment to T74590: EH "GetIn" & "GetOut" does not fire for the object "player".

You have to add the eventhandlers to vehicles not units. A vehicle is also an object.

What you are looking for is getInMan and getOutMan. Both eventhandler strings are in the A3 exe (since the Alpha was released) but were never implemented (they are available in VBS 2 for a long time).

Right, overall and diff are not the same (it's only the same if the overall damage of the object is zero, then both are obviously the same).

Currently it is not possible to create your own damage system.
Check other handleDamage tickets like for example the following one:
http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=13769

Often it also fires a null object for the object which caused the damage.

Furthermore using a FAK also triggers the handleDamage event and don't forget that the BIS feedback system always adds a handleDamage EH to the player object:

Xeno added a comment to T73848: Arma 3 not correctly working on the Windows 8.1 OS.

While I don't get an error message, Alpha 3 looks like this now:

Map is orange, static sounds coming out of my speakers, etc.
(The bad looking taxi and runway light orbs are not caused by the update, they look like this already for a long time)

It's the only game with problems after updating to 8.1

Edit: I didn't read Foremans post, disabling the stereoscopic 3D feature fixed it.

And as you can see, BL1P, this isn't such an important issue. Things like "Make "DayZ" items inventory item" are more important now.

Right!

Funny enough you can connect with multiple normal local game clients on a local dedicated server but not with a local headless client (local = everything is running on the same machine, dedicated server and clients, LAN mode with loopback on that is).

I would tell my gunner to waste all the tank ammunition, that's what tank commanders do IRL too.
Please use irony tags whereever you want.

It's a bug and like many other bugs it yet again takes ages to get it fixed.
