Hi

I'm probably very late to the party with this but I'm trying to get a IFA2 SP mission to work.

I've got all the requirements apart from one.

The mission is Destroy marine kustemann battery by Vandevoorde.pa & Foxsch.

The requirement I'm missing is an addon called @Alper_Scharnhorst.

I can't seem to locate it anywhere and I can't play the mission without it it seems.

Please could someone here help me out with this?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Ravenmorheus Welcome to IF Fan forums!
Did you download the mission from my website the MissionRepository?

I dont have that file your asking and i see it in the mission's SQM
I sent Vandevoorde a e-mail and maybe he has the file, idk what that file is for.

What you can do if you want to try the mission while we wait for Vandevoorde if he replies and has the file i cant guarantee anything
so its a wait and see but you can open the mission.SQM with a notepad and remove that line for that file (addon)  and the mission should work.
If you want to try that, then you will need to open the pbo of the mission basically this file---> coastal-battery-IF-Alper.Colleville.pbo
and then locate the mission.sqm which is towards the bottom of the files there.

Open the mission.sqm with notepad and look for the following code (which is at the top):
Code:

addOns[]=
  {
    "LIB_US_Characters",
    "colleville_island",
    "LIB_guer",
    "LIB_US_Rangers_Characters",
    "LIB_ger_characters",
    "camisc3",
    "Alper_Scharnhorst",
    "lib_wheeled",
    "lib_houses",
    "lib_weapons",
    "lib_core",
    "lib_improved_explosions_effects",
    "lib_fnc",
    "ca_modules_functions",
    "map_eu",
    "camisc_e",
    "lib_buildings2",
    "castructures_pmc_buildings_bunker",
    "castructures_e_misc_misc_interier",
    "lib_misc1",
    "castructures_rail",
    "LIB_Flakvierling_38",
    "lnrd_luftwaffe",
    "LIB_P47",
    "lib_coredata",
    "lib_wreck",
    "warship",
    "lib_trenches",
    "LIB_Pak40",
    "SG_sturmpanzer",
    "cadata",
    "LIB_Ju87",
    "LIB_FW190F8",
    "lib_mines",
    "SG_sturmtroopers",
    "lib_gercamp_scripts",
    "LIB_LCVP",
    "lib_core_eventhandlers",
    "ca_missions_battlefieldclearance",
    "ca_missions_firstaidsystem",
    "ca_missions_alternativeinjurysimulation",
    "sc9_ger_infantry",
    "LIB_FlaK_38"
  };
  addOnsAuto[]=
  {
    "LIB_US_Characters",
    "LIB_ger_characters",
    "lib_improved_explosions_effects",
    "lib_fnc",
    "ca_modules_functions",
    "lnrd_luftwaffe",
    "LIB_US_Rangers_Characters",
    "SG_sturmpanzer",
    "LIB_Ju87",
    "LIB_FW190F8",
    "LIB_P47",
    "SG_sturmtroopers",
    "ca_missions_battlefieldclearance",
    "ca_missions_firstaidsystem",
    "ca_missions_alternativeinjurysimulation",
    "sc9_ger_infantry",
    "LIB_FlaK_38",
    "LIB_Flakvierling_38",
    "lib_houses",
    "lib_weapons",
    "camisc3",
    "Alper_Scharnhorst",
    "map_eu",
    "lib_wheeled",
    "camisc_e",
    "lib_buildings2",
    "castructures_pmc_buildings_bunker",
    "castructures_e_misc_misc_interier",
    "lib_misc1",
    "castructures_rail",
    "lib_coredata",
    "lib_wreck",
    "lib_trenches",
    "LIB_Pak40",
    "cadata",
    "lib_mines",
    "colleville_island"

Where it says ---> "Alper_Scharnhorst",  in both top and bottom lists, you delete that, and fill the space in, save and then try the mission.
Or i can do it for you if you, it very easy, or we can wait for Vandevoorde and see if he will respond and has the file.
Your thoughts.

Lastly i want to point out a listing for some soldiers seen in the list, which is this --->  "sc9_ger_infantry",
this is from the new weapons pack that my IFR team developed back in 2013, are you using that pack?

Thanks.  Yes I downloaded the mission from MissionRepository.

The link in the readme to the @Alper_Scharnhorst addon goes to Armaholic for another mission (risky battery or something), where there's a dead link to the file under the list of requirements.

I tried opening and modifying the mission.sqm prior to joining up here.
isted further down the mission.sqm with a name starting with Alper.

I also tried removing that entry (as well as the other two entries you have pointed out) and whilst the mission will load I get a "cannot play mission" error.  Although I still get into the mission in-game, but only one of the objectives appears to work - the fuel dump objective (plus it's 1am in the game and I can't see a thing!!).


I did initially get an error regarding  sc9_ger_infantry (and the other sc9 files), but I had already downloaded that addon, it just required the .pbo files to be put into the @IF_other_addons folder for it to work (didn't seem to want to work in it's own folder) - I actually stumbled upon the resolution of that error message after quite a while this afternoon, as I didn't know what addon the sc9_ger_infantry (or the other sc9 files I was getting errors for) were from...




EDIT - I believe I may have located the Alper Scharnhorst mod (via many searches on google and on Armaholic and the BIS forms), within another mod, the 31st Normandy mod.  I'm downloading it now to try it.


EDIT2 - yep that worked.  Thanks all the same though Gunther. [thumb]

hello kju...I was always present, but camouflaged!!!![biggrin].
I work on Arma 3 with templates and also some missions.I do a lot of work on my templates but it lacks a lot of ww2 addons to do a job close to the real historical missions and movies...

You have news of the German tanks and addons of Invasion44.
