deanosbeano added a comment to T83176: Cant select object with bulldozer.

Make sure you have the correct layer selected in the objects tab
If you dont have the right layer selected , it can cause this problem

Good practice to name a layer houses or village A etc so you know what layer the object is on.

It can be also sheer lag caused by map detail or roads script being used

deanosbeano added a comment to T83164: Terrain Builder Crashes when working with 8192 Height Maps.

Never had a problem using that Size other than the sheer wait for processing.

Obviously its the cell size that is usually the issue in most cases , whilst the number of Faces never changes with cell size , The amount Viewable on the screen does if the cell size is small . A 1.5 gb Greyscale Heightmap seems very exxcessive so i must assume its either very very detailed or maybe its got something wrong.
If its detailed and your suing a small cell size then you need to be giving things around 5- 12 hours to crunch in my experience , whilst its not acceptable it is possible .

Its best to reduce View distances etc in Bulldozer and Game before loading too .

Hi
I'm sampling 20000 files not sure 53 is a good measure for how the programme will use page file , memory , cpu if the process you sample is so small

Maybe try a bigger sample from altis or so

In addition I can't rember if the last iteration was also poor , dos it also have this GUI checklist ?

Thanks for helping

You see insults
I see frustration ,
Is it really too much to test before release even if its DEV version ?, Lets just think for one moment what we are seeing here on many many occasions .

  Is the final release full of Major flaw and bugs ? Nope 
  Is the final release full of silly little flaws that would be caught by one simple test ? yes.

Please understand this is not disrepect it is shear disolusion for people who spend many hours to give the Engine more longevity and Shelf life if we didnt do this , the Vanilla games would long be gone.
In summary i only ask for one simple thing : Please test at least once the final update before release , it is beyond all dispute that this error shows , it cannot have been tested because the PBO would bot have been in the folder.
This simple flaw once again cost me 6 hours + of my own precious time , i hope you undertsand.

Thanks

Deleted Temp folder and copied necessary Folder structure to Temp \a3 \required folder structures containing p3ds

And in addition
http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=24187

Whilst you have fixed james problem , he uses pboproject , this has an intelligent understanding to copy p3d to temp folder that are used on a terrain so when the terrain is binarised it understands class from proprties .

However whatever fix you did to make pbo project work has now broken your own tools when using bis workflow .

deanosbeano added a comment to T81863: Mounting P :Drive.

That is not the case on win 8 pro x64 and never has been

  There is a complexity of  tools exe's starting viewers and second line exe's that simply allowing p drive to bypass UAC does not fix , pdrive as you know is only a subst , creating it does not then allow uac to be bypassed on the exe's contained within .

For example start steam as user then mount p , then start TB and launch bulldozer annd you will recieve viewer not found .
However if you start steam as admin then do the same all will be ok ,
however as a user you will not physically see the p: drive as a drive label because your a user not admin .therefore you have to go direct to the armawork folder or go via the open file in the tool UI.

I have started p drive via the bat as both user and admin since day 1 and still do if I do it through tools ui it will only show to the authority that started the steam exe .

May 10 2016, 10:44 AM · Arma 3
deanosbeano added a comment to T81863: Mounting P :Drive.

Solved (ish)

The P:drive is created but only attributed to the User authority that steam was satrted with :

If you start steam as Admin : then P:drive is only visible to the Admin
you must then start as user manually by double click the mapdisk in tools folder to access it via the Windows UI.

Obviously because you have started steam as Admin then you can reach P:drive via the Steam tools UI and tools you start from there.

Disabling UAC on windows 8 so User has admin rights is not possible as Arma 3 is an App that suffers serious stutters if this is done.

Starting steam as user is also not an option because then tools do not work properly becuase the exe`s that are required during there use like only admin authority

Nightmare cant see a way past it other than persevere but thats Windows fault , fingers crosssed for 10 :)

Hi all those files are in the white list i can in the UI and in regedit adress

second i am aware what exclude list does (it was me who point out to copy p3d to get image on terrain of house and trees ) thats my problem Source folder is in exclude yet it still tries to sync that folder , so i have to leave these in the options or then it means take out source folder and put elsewhere and its not good for me or it break the terrain build process.

CHeers

BTW here is my exact files to copy from UI and Regedit

*.paa;*.rtm;*.sqf;*.wss;* .ogg;*.wav;*.fxy;*.csv;*.html;*.txt;*.wrp;*. bisurf;*.rvmat;*.cfg;*.hpp;*.shp,*.shx,*.prj,*.dbf ; if i leave these out from options then there will be no roads or rvmat or anything in the pbo ;)even if i do copy to the temp\ARMAAddons\nameof pbo folder.

Now i narrow it dow to make it work , Start from Steam > addon builder work first time , try to repack second time no work > open Steam > arma 3 tools addonbuilder > works first time will not repack > vicious circle open with different shortcut for 1 time only work .

Thanks for efforts much apreciated however now its finally time i give up on official tools and succomb to 3rd party package .

Im sure you know Addon builder makes 2 logs now , one in the tool folder as a User.rot and a Log in the Generic tool folder , i uploaded both .
of course still exists this problem of Addon builder looking through non consequential files for whatever reason it was decided to do it , however it doesnt error on these any more thankfully ( well as far as i am aware but i dont have config errors there so cant say too accurately ).

these are the required addons in the config that is Binarised from a fresh start and New logs from scatch

requiredAddons[] = {"dbo_weapons"};
Dbo_weapons has a required addons of
requiredAddons[] = {"A3_Data_f","A3_Characters_F"};
i dont know whay it even look dbo_trex base but thats another problem for you :)

i also attach my exclude.lst (N>B I renamed to .log to breach void filetype as .lst not allowed here)
I notice also the list is mentioned in two locations (I have tired also put list in BOth addon folder and filebank) but same results LONG SYCH

  • [Arguments]=-targetBonesInterval=56 -addon="P:" -exclude="P:\dbo\dbo_prehistoric\exclude.lst"

Got it : you need Launcher from Bis and Subscribe from there as Admin , it opens web page not steam app and then subscribe and when Dl check the Addon > addon you dl

Fixed
make your own batfile for pdrive
subst p: "path to your armawork folder"
Download Mikeros tools and install
Download Bis tools and install via steam
Run once Via steam
setttings.ini write your own paths and untick default in the options (this is linked to a majorly flawed operation that is present in every bat file and registry process in the arma3 tools installaion process (basically its Borked beyond belief))

Never ever use armatools.exe directly again use the individual exe as admin
Never ever click ok if you ever get a pop saying Buldozer maynot perform , always click cancel
Never ever Mount P: drive using Devp or Mapdisk in any form via A3tool UI or direct from Bat.

In Summary avoid Arma3tools Ui and Bat files like the Plague they are fundamentally flawed in every concievalble manner

deanosbeano added a comment to T78452: Addon builder not binarizing rtm animation properly.

it would Binarise as normal ,
it seemed in early itterations the need for a model.cfg in the anim folder (or where the .rtm file was) was negated by a diff inhertiance by the AB .exe and config.bin so no errors were produced .

In addition i also in my namespace root i always put the model.cfg , as you see on a P :drve root ther is a model.cfg with only default skeleton and model , maybe because in my root i put the full model.cfg this allowed for the binarisation.

like i say its not a fix but there have been 4 or 5 occasions from A2 to A3 where the placing of the model.cfg in the anim folder broke the anim due to changes in the binarise.exe , the temp fix for me during these periods was to remove the model.cfg from the anim folder.

it may ork again , however given the complexity of the new development team and A3 , iwould assume this break is different , however still worth a try if the hotfix takes time.

unfortunately i no longer mess with it so cant test , i will say that permissions were 80% of the troubles with A3 development for me and especially on windows 8.1 , the rewards no longer became > than the outcome.

I would also check the roots of the tolls and see if Bis have now placed a Model.cfg as well as the config.bin /.cpp maybe they Borked this as it wont be the first time .

It is evident from the tracker alone that the guy writing the .xml and registry files is not talking to or understanding what the guy who edits the binaries is doing , the whole tools package has been running on a Silo system of development since day 1 , nobody needs to look further than the tracker to see this.

deanosbeano added a comment to T78374: Terrain Builder object placement corruption.

TB is a rudementary version ofa vbs product and has legacy

The zone for a3 is totally irelevant because all your weather sky etc is done via config.cpp

Whats important is 0, 0 is bottom left and the game can handle floatpoint from it and to achieve this in TB you need 200000 , 0 for every layer or be prepared for any wiki or tutorial to be of no use to any troubleshooting

Now back toy your problem , if you had this problem on a map inTB with recommended properties then my advice is no longer valid to that but is apropiate for successful in game map

I no longer develop but after 14 years I still like to pass info .

May 10 2016, 8:50 AM · Arma 3
deanosbeano added a comment to T78374: Terrain Builder object placement corruption.

You cant use a diff zone
The game uses left bottom for 0, 0 and this ties to development 0, 0 which is stated in the wiki /tutes as 200000 , 0 for the area of development .
Using diff zone means your objects will be borked floatpoint

Best to delete any co ord info from your source file and use the default co ords in TB when defining the layer .

deanosbeano added a comment to T78374: Terrain Builder object placement corruption.

Your map properties are completely wrong and so are your easting northing for the layerr
Your floatpoints for the objects will be messed thus you get errors

Try on a tute sample map like jakerods or similar

Sorry I cant type correct properties im on tablet

But the layer is normally 4* the cell so 20 not 40
Pixel of 2.5 is also bad its preferably 1.0
Easting and northing are to be 200000 and 0

as per the video there is a freeze when selecting the viewport 2D area for anything between 10 and 60 seconds , the amount of data on the map or size of the map does not seem to reflect any linear reason

Lets see when 1.99 for addons :)
I dont like this FUll Screen Splash its not nice i think for such a cheap addon that a lot of people cannot add money to steam to purchase its not so good idea , hopefully BIS will Make a paperCar "lite" and "roflcopter" lite for future DLC and those who cannot put money to steam and now Join there friends who have it because of Full Screen splash and other such annoyance comes when you dont have it :(.

If you saying the exclude.lst is not activated Via AddonBuilder then i uNderstand but im not sure what FileBank GUI is sorry i have never used filebank direct or command line its only access through AddonBuilder for me.

please try as described and Source Folder is in PBO , it shouldnt be nor Files inside it as its designated for Ignore in the exclude.lst and thats how it always worked.

Hi Cooper
This is an old rant and no longer applicable in its entirety
The only outstanding issue is the p3d files are no longer copied to temp for ID of class in the geometry Losds and. so icons not are applied to terrains for trees Et al and oxygen no longer has the FBX import via arma 3 tools gui route

I would love too but logs are nolonger created past the start up and if you try to use namespace on win 8.1 it will delete the sourcefiles of the p drive

The bat files are written by a hobbyist
The log.xml was goodbut now broke
The buldozer nolonger goes to the pdrive

Dev p should be banned and the code writer sent to IT school or satelite painting duties.
Mapdisk is patheticly overwritten and pedantic

Setting.ini is not authorised to access paths and its irrelevant because the Default setting is Default and by Default there is no paths because devp and map disk are pathetic.
its only funny because the guy messing up the code every update and causing so many problems is now making even more .exe`s to verify registry and paths and those exe are even less use than the registry and batfiles that they are designed to check (apart from image.paa gui which was already done by another ).

Is it true all this incredulous keystone copesque breaking of oyr workflow is an actual known procedure ?
If the crit seems harsh , I believe after spending 2 evenings of spare time trying to fix the tools and P:drive after every update and the changelog representative of no actual justification for the break to my workflow and not withstanding the guy whos writing the code thats breaking the pipeline spending his time on tools for updating community tools rather than replying here on feedback , I earned the right to be slightly peed off.

That wouldnt help anybody at all with windows 8.1 im afraid as it will cause 3 FPS in Bulldozer and game , as stated at MS "some Apps may freeze by disabling UAC" , Arma3 is one of those apps.

Anyway for the record its fixed now for me now i got a rollback thanks to BIS , for anyone else who wants a dirty fix : Always run all tools via steam , its a pain in the ass and your whitelist will be reset if you start any tool before P: . and always steam as Admin.

As for RTMS , sorry but if a prefix of o: is there and not in config or Binary p3d it is the same cause as i stated in 18842

My terrain Config was formulated on from Dev in tools v0:58 and the core config didnt spit any errors ;
however after update of tools Version 0.62
Problem was due to :
Version 0.62

Updated: New versions of core config files

mapfile: .map (empty 1)

SO my congif was now spitting too many errors and so wrp just not binned but copy direct unbinned

deanosbeano added a comment to T76760: Objects (buildings & trees) are not represented on ingame map.

It does read the Model ok the problem is because of two reaons :
A: you havent binarised the Mlod house etc first ( addon builder will move this to the temp folder)
B: Addon Builder will not move a binarised P3d to the temp folder becuase its on a map , you have to do it manually before Binarisng the map.

Log report Using Unbinned A3 Sample Houseexample and Binarised Gate reports as follows without moving the Binned p3ds and not Binarising the Mlod sample house before Binarising the map :

A3 Binarised P3d
using non-binarized object a3\structures_f\walls\city_gate_f.p3d
Cannot open object a3\structures_f\walls\city_gate_f.p3d

A3 Samples Unbinarised P3d
using non-binarized object samples_f\Test_House_01\Test_House_01_F.p3d
Cannot open object samples_f\test_house_01\test_house_01_f.p3d

THE TEMP FIX : http://i.imgur.com/5ddoKZD.jpg
It seems the FIX is to manually copy the Folders of the Binarised objects your map uses and configs to Local\temp\ or whatever the TEMP folder is defined as in your addon builder GUI.
The Models that are used and unbinarised must be Binarised Before the map is Binarised.

this will then fix it , you will still get the unrelatedd error of the Walls not having a Class in the Geo LOD but it will now work and show in the m,ap :)

deanosbeano added a comment to T76760: Objects (buildings & trees) are not represented on ingame map.

Well its obviously a mixture of incoherent rant and Facts
The strange thing is Binpbo used to copy every Texture p3d and config that was related in the Reqired addons in cfgpatches / and cfgvehicle dependancy over to the Temp file during binarising , The CLEAR TEMP was never what it depicted itself to be because it has nor never should clear the Temp files unless the current file or part there of has changed , or it would recopy every file to TEMP every Binarise session and that would be rificulous.

I have wondered if the Bin config in the Binarizefolder was kep uptodate it would also help as its simply a very low version of the heirarchy and is never updated , never actually knew what the exe pulls from the Addon to be binarised and pits against the Binarize version but there is always clashes and arguments with the two .

Anway hope the TEMP fix helps some

Depends if you trust Bis to automate the process and completely ruin the whole shebang or worse trust them to read from your actual pdrive and files and completely misubdrstand UAC registries ,xml , Et Al and ruin everything again and delete your sources :)

For me its a Fix because it works it involves Ctrl C and Ctrl V and thats it just once .
For others as always its a world of choice , wait for bis and cross fingers or take matters into your own hands

Personally I dont think your arma3p is a fix but a work around because I have pbos full of binned models and configs in the game folder but now I have 3 , but I welcome yoyr Fix with open arms and woukdnt trust bis to alliw buldozer and tb to read straight from the pbo :) like the game already does and use psuedo p3d for binarising made up of geo lod for class properties

To put into perspective, ive lost over 200 hours of valuable spare time and what I find incredulous is im forced to use your environment to be able to use BIS tools and BIS refuse to accept there Instalation is flawed beyond contempt .
Take this guy for instance , I dont know whos telling him that using the launcher will give you a pdruve with physx and a buldozer exe , but ill tell him to his face im in windows 8.1 and hes talkung shite and to me that's been the problem , they simply have a monoculture of it works on the devs pc so it works .

Since this was disabled without changelog notification , any chance of putting s nonpropriety channel in there ?

Seems it does work despite the error but very very slow to create the networks, seems good practice to export a single road that you need to work on to allow faster road creation HOWEVER the roads in bulldozer wont change instantly and you will have to re export then shut down and reopen bulldozer :(
and then export all the road shapes before finalising for completion.

  I will e-mail about WRP but first i will check its not my config calling a Call Stack, because i am now on Stable due to trying to get tools to work an my config was wrote for Dev branch.
  Edit it is my fault the WRP , i will ammend the Bug i put for it  ( half my fault lol as i will explain in apropiate Bug issue 0018805 )

Hi ,
I dont think my explanation is clear but i try last time

Tools ver.58 work fine for you(techrep 0000005) but ver.60(0000006) don't? I agree that I have changed many things in TerrainBuilder P3D logic(both

They work perfect and then subsequent changes :" I have changed many things in TerrainBuilder P3D logic" and specifically in combination with P-Drive update

The above has broken my Pipeline in windows 8.1 , what i say to you is i have and shown video that in ver 0.58 100+ hours on DBo Afghanistan v4 using Binarised P3d from Arma 3 PBO and in addition used arma2 sample data Mlod and when in game using Arm3MP a working pipeline .
Whatever you did i dont know , whatever this guy did to Bat files in ver.60 i dont know , however i can tell you without shadow of a doubt my terrain that i worked on is not only unable to load the p3d in TB i cannot view the Mlods with Bulldozer of sample data due to crashes.

I think now we spend enough time and i appreciate your time here, however if there is as you say no link to version0.58 , i will succombe to use Community tools such as Mikero and create a working pipleline as this works for others and is well documented.
I am totally dissapointed to do this because all susequent fixes you make are based on BIS pipeline un assumption DEV:P is used or BIS mapdisk.
Thanks for your assitance.

Hi
I suppose your Files are different , usually WRP only ever fails when the Configs in Binpbo (addonbuilder) have too much outdated Heirarchy and Binarize.exw simply gives up in my experience before A3 , however this time although yes The tool set was out dated ( and some changes made around or just after April 10th in itteration 3 , this made worse .

Howver i would be danicng amongst the strs if you can let me have v 1.0 tool set :) , whether its my own fault for setting a working pipeline and doing 100+ hours with V1.0 is debatable but right now my 100 hors work is unusable with current tool set :).
so yes Tool set likage ( steam accepted or if i need workaround ok) for before April is my Desire

Hi Japapa
First , no arma2 binned or unbinned work at all in current version since April 10th for me on my system., i started new map in interim with only A3 but wish to return to my one map i have so many hours invested.
The programme no longer Binarises WRP
UAC is now completely messed up with Dev:P
Simple fix , please give rollback link so i may continue with previous terrain
If its not a possibility then ok

The guy i refer too is the guy who changed the Bat files for MapDisk, there is now no corellations with UAC between Hkey registraions / P:drive /Executable of tools / Bulldozer , i cannot tell why because i simply have headache with testing Start Staem Admin , Start addon/terrain builder as Admin / no Bulldozer
Start as user as above cant see P:drive but can use bulldozer new file so must have P: as user and Admin
Disable UAC on windows 8.1 Arma3 is now one of the APPS affected and so FPS is now 5FPS in game and Bulldozer .
In essence , i personally had no problems and many i know ,which i should get to register but hey, its a hobby and do they care as a I ?.
Given the problems i respect your DEV team is samll and as such its too much to satisfy many differing PC owners with varying specs.
I ask for one easy ( unless there is a problem with your end) please give link to first itteration of tools .
I respect others may have differing views as this is PC not console world.

Hi I saw your rhetorical question .
The tools in V0.58 are never broken , the fixes and feedback here are based on 3rd party tools used to set up working pipeline .
As you see here on 31 /3/14 i was making map with A2 sample Data and A3 Binarised in Terrain builder set 1.0
since the date 10/4/14 i have no longer able to work on it. I think there are two sets of people here both trying to create a working set of tools and pipeline.

I use BIS pipeline and now because of fix to tools to accomodate previosuly mentione , all work on that is stopped. Please can we have LInk to v1.0 tool set so we can continue. If there was changes for Legal reasons due to VBS or so then i understand but i wait in hope. P.S for the love of god  keep that guy away from the original Bat files too please if you do create a link to v1.0

many thanks

Please roll back to V1.0 itteration
this Map with 100+ hours can no longer be worked on with current itteration.
There is a difference between View Scene Objects and View Textured Objects , in V1.0 itteration the View Scen and View texrured worked but now only View Scene gives refference and view textured is broken with both Mlod and Odol p3ds.
