rogerx added a comment to T72673: Jets - Afterburners, orange glow around the engine and wing stress simulation .

The Jets DLC is bringing engine flame and can only be seen internally from the rear of the aircraft (eg. using 3D view), but not the afterburner thrusters glow which extends beyond the frame of the aircraft during afterburner usage.

From memory after the previously mentioned incident and after restarting the mission scenario, I pushed the F/A-181 to around 51,000-59,000m, but flight control surfaces became inoperable. You mean there's a limited height, or adequate height, or content heighth a pilot should want to fly? ;-)

WORKAROUND: Use one of the BlastCore Explosion Effects mods/modules providing more realistic explosions as well as significantly increasing flare brightness to realistic levels as well as increasing chemical/glow stick brightness. (eg. extensions.) Most servers ban though any 3rd party mod, regardless of the 3rd party modifications intentions or usefulness. Server administrators are paranoid of hackers or are just lazy.

I agree. And I think the situation is two fold here. 1) Helicopters always explode on tip-over, when they should not with most being survivable and, 2) aircraft should have different non-explosive damage models.

The two videos show explicitly what should occur when entering the water, as long as no major electrical components acquire any moisture. I would imagine the landing gear contain all water proof parts, and all wiring is run elsewhere instead of within the bottom of the craft.

rogerx added a comment to T76284: We need a military transport aircraft..

Using and getting experienced with Tanoa/Apex here on developer snapshots, the VTOL (vortex) aircraft still do not transport vehicles larger than common ordinary vehicles. (With the possible exception the NATO VTOL can carry a Marshall vehicle.) As such, all heavy armored vehicles still need to be driven to area of operations. And as such, the heavy armored vehicles remain at the base or around the base. So with Tanoa, would be nice to have a hovercraft or other boating solution. Similar could be stated for Stratis & Altis islands, as they are surrounded by water, and with a faster boat, could be much faster than driving.

rogerx added a comment to T86227: Arma3Update156RC: Extremely Unstable.

Thank you. I happened to catch a similar response of yours within another bug report elsewhere, but not before I attempted to download the daily developer snapshots for several days using ADSL.

Returning to downloading RC still ran about six hours, but unlike the impossible 6-24 hour download times of the Developer snapshots.

I thought the ARMA 3 Tools GameUpdater was an incremental update program, similar to RSync or Git? Anyways, we can close this bug as I'm sure everybody his on the right track, or (for all I know) I think the right track.

Thanks for your attention concerning the quality, although a multi-platform game is almost just as important. (An unrelated note, I'm literally pulling my hair out after working with a software tuner within Windows, even while trying to desperately utilize the software tuner tools within Cygwin.)

Suggest closing this bug, as it's too general, and the purpose was to highlight quality issues.

May 10 2016, 1:00 PM · Arma 3
rogerx updated subscribers of T86227: Arma3Update156RC: Extremely Unstable.

One, if not all of these bugs have already been posted at one time or another. (ie. "Error compiling shader PSSpecularAlpha" for using old mods from older ARMA 3 versions.) So since my download took a long time over DSL, a lot of these bugs are already going to be already in processing.

The mods were all disabled within the stable version, but starting the new version experienced some Workshop mods still being enabled. (ie. @Nam) This required using the RC snapshot arma3launcher.exe to further ensure that all Workshop mods were further deactivated. (ie. @Nam)

My main point was, I encountered numerous bugs or stability issues with this RC version within a very short period of time. (No need to apologize, as I'm volunteering. ;-) Since I experienced so many bugs, and not being able to really spend much time at all for further bug searching within the 3D world, felt it was important to report this aspect.

My question was, is the RC snapshot going to see any incremental updates, or should those of us testing just move onto the daily development snapshots.

On the flip, although I was only able to spend 20 seconds within the 3D editor, I'm impressed with the engineering and direction of this 3D editor. And what coding style I have seen, albeit most is proprietary, I am also somewhat impressed with the clean coding style and the direction of a multi-platform environment.

I have a gut feeling with the bugs I've witnessed so far, I should definitely migrated to daily development snapshots, as most are likely going to be fixed.

rogerx added a comment to T85056: Helicopters Always Explode when Tipping Over!.

Slept on this and realized the slope of the center of gravity is similar to the center of gravity during take-off. When thrust is applied or removed, the slope or the speed rate the center of gravity is raised or lowered is applicable to the rate the thrust is applied or removed.

When landing, the slope of the center of gravity is likely not being lowered fast enough. Likely the slope just needs to be inverted to the slope of the center of gravity during taken-off. Hence, the model is apt to always tip-over during landings as the center of gravity is not lowered fast enough.

Also during rough landings, the gear is likely integral to the framing of most vehicles, as for the past 20-30 years vehicles have been designed to collapse around the passengers. However 3D model designing of the gear collapsing might be more tedious then adjusting, or even inverting the slope of center of gravity as mentioned above.

Bottom line, there may not be any slope of raising or lowering the center of gravity of the model, and these values might just be statically assigned. In which case, would be easier to just assign a strength of impact or collision equation or limit value until an explosion is caused. (ie. hardness of landing) Also, delaying an explosion can also be easily integrated alongside further simulating realism. Randomness can also be included, as we cannot account for every factor, even in real life.

It really kills me (even further than being dead after the explosion) to see all my passengers dead every time I execute the auto-rotation maneuver almost flawlessly.

My last *.mdmp file I have was arma3_2015-09-06_23-41-36.mdmp.7z. I see no other *.mdmp files, and I do not know why. (ie. If I have a arma3_2015-09-06_23-41-36.mdmp.7z, where is the original I ask myself.)

Oh wait, I replaced the Windows system debugger, and now they're being handed to Windbg, per the Additional Information. But then there is nothing within my /mnt/windows7/Windows/Minidump/ folder. (Performing a more extensive search for the Mini Dump files.)

UPDATED 2015.11.24 0032: I went back and restarted ARMA 3 developement version and I am not getting handed a Mini Dump file via WinDbg.exe. I am guessing at this point ARMA 3 is not loading far enough or executing far enough to generate a Minidump file. I'm guessing the answer to this bug already lies within the attached files already.

UPDATED 2015.11.24 0037: Examing the .rpt file a little further, I see a "error X3501: 'PSPostProcessGlowNewFinalNightNone': entrypoint not found" and seems to be a subsection of the DirectX 11 Engine initialization.

JustinK: I was getting this error with apparently 1.54 RC. (Forgive me for apparently forgetting to further state within the description, as I do not think the version slots have a further list of possible versions to file against.)

Odd little error as I no longer see this with the current 1.54 version. I was almost ready to speculate this was related to the memory run being seen within the server application, but now remember I wasn't even starting to run the client. I'm currently starting & running the now stable 1.54 release without this error. Wonder if it's something localized to the ARMA Tools I used to download this version with?

Vitdom: Yea this is probably off-topic, but probably no better topic title then something concerning the Opposition Nymph! And the fact that I enjoy open source seem to go hand in hand.

From what I've seen so far and I've only written some random small snippets of the SQF syntax scripting, compared to C and Unix/Linux SH/Bash scripting; the SQF scripting language utilized by the ARMA series of games is called SQF, or a scripting language having a SQF syntax. (When using text editors, you'll want to use the SQF syntax for coloring your text or script within the editor.)

It does not appear that there is an all in one inclusive source of information concerning the language and functions used within each game version, but spread about Bohemia's domains.

If you have questions, people usually point you towards Bohemia Interactive's forums. Usually most developers are grateful and willing to help most people. And if you have an "Oh my God" great idea, you may see the idea readily employed. Just be advised some people you might come across do get hostile within the forums, and probably best to just avoid them.

http://forums.bistudio.com/topic/151099-scripting-discussion-dev-branch/#post2530202 (ie. The Developer Changelog may include function naming conversions, and maybe needed to update your scripts.)

After reading quite a bit of the already written scripting, I would suggest having some experience at writing SH/Bash and even C programs, as the scripting language is reminiscent of a stripped-down Sh or C shell. Be consistent with your spacing and know how the computer reads code. Use good variable naming and please please make sure you comment your code well! I would suggest ignoring the people claiming too many comments or statements not needing comments, as comments will not or should not slow the computer any. (I guess some people enjoy unreadable code, as it keeps them employed or fear becoming unemployed.)

Also within the 3D game editor, I think press ESC and you'll be given a menu for finding functions and/or classes. I've found this method difficult to use and maybe better streamlined when they deploy the Eden editor. But this method of finding the most current functions or classes to be the most accurate, but lacks the documentation similar to the above URL's.

Oh, and do not forget to make back-ups of your scripts. Use of a version system (ie. CVS, SVN, Git, ...) or simply backup your scripts be using a date suffix such as script-20151125.sqf. (On Unix/Linux, we just do script.sqf.20151125.) When packaging, make sure your file are contained within a version or dated suffixed sub-folder. (ie. MyScript-20151125/)

I included a few Windows related solutions to some hiccups I've seen within past Windows related packages.

Good luck!
