Awesome sauce!!!

I did have a thought though. When you encounter wounded enemy ai and you heal them, can they then be a prisoner of war and join your squad? and also give up information when questioned?

Ya I know, makin it difficult.

Excellent!

  Can I download it, or is it specific to Evolution 3?

Foxsch - I am back-porting it from my Arma 3 mission (Evolution 3) into the standalone Iron Front game. I have become a little stuck already though since some commands I have used are only available in Arma 3. I need some help with the "HandleDamage" function since getHit and similar commands are not available in Iron Front. If anyone knows a work-around or different method then let me know. I am trying to avoid the actual death of the units and then moving them back the where they died. Any help is much appreciated! [smile]

Edit:
This will also be included in the IFA3WarMod (Arma 3).

Hiya,

  That sounds like some complex scripting.
I'd like to be able to help; what similar calls are available in iron Front?
I hadn't realised that scripting differed that much from A3, but if it does,
then the A3 wiki is not going to be of any use.
Is there a similar scripting wiki for IF I could read through?

Most of the A2 commands are available in Iron Front except for the ones from the 1.63 patch which are profileNamespace, saveProfileNamespace, etc... I am stuck with the HandleDamage function as it is uses the getHit command. This is the only A3 only command I have used. The rest should be a piece of cake. [smile]

Off the top of my head: setHit seems similar?
And there is also setHitPointDamage
I
s the problem that you have tried all of the A2 and prior, scripting commands,
and they aren't doing the job that needs doing?
I would really need to see where this fits into the Revive System,
to fully understand what it is you need.

The problem is simply the getHit command. It does not exist in A2/IF so I need a different command or method to catch the unit's damage status, etc and make them go unconscious before they really die. I was looking into the damage/getDamage commands but not too sure... I would like them to really die if they get shot in the head or if they are shot too much while unconscious.

That seems to be the gold standard for revives.
Fatal shots or ridiculously large amounts of damage will finish a player/unit off completely, but moderate damage is open for the medic.
It seems the grey area is the damage calculation on the unit, rather than how players will get to experience their woundings?

Hey Haz,

Some more thoughts...

- option to give lives to other players that have a hard time staying alive...lookin at you Major [wink]

- option to respawn with original and what you died with loadout.

Kind of related to revive...

- add the option to have players join other player groups.
- add the option to round up stragglers and make them join your group. 

thinking of more things to add. I don't want you to have things too easy to make...

thanks

Update:
I have the main core (revive, camera and dialog) setup/done. Still quite a bit to do though.

I like this idea, will implement it once I have finished the more important stuff though, this would only work if a cetain amount of lives have been set.

This is definitely something that needs doing, I have added this to my list.

Maybe in the future.

I know it's very short notice BUT I am looking to arrange a test for this Sunday around 16:30 / 17:00 UK time. The test shouldn't take longer than 30 minutes. The test will have no mission other than us shooting each other and AI. Basically testing out all the features done/started so far.
Requirements:
- Must be a known member and not some random new guy. Why? I don't want people stealing/releasing/whatever... Haz = Paranoid? [biggrin]
- Must own a legit copy of Iron Front, the DLC is not required.
- Must be able to provide feedback.
Post here in this thread if you have any questions or if you would like to attend.
I've only got 8 spaces available and even this is quite a lot for just a revive test but thought some people would like to see what's done so far, etc. The test will be hosted on my private server (dedi box located in Paris, France).
