[Updated] Storage Invasion DMS Static Mission (Altis) v2.1

17 posts in this topic

Updated v2.1 30/07/16 - my newer template with better code structure.

Also moved mission to GiThub for ease.

Has a nice cargo box maze in the centre and not too many new objects.

It was requested to add some extra functionality to the static missions like I did to my Bandit package, well here is the 2nd of the 2 reworks (so far):

1. You can now get 4 difficulties of the mission.
2. You get to choose Ai levels independantly for each mission difficulty.
3. Vary reinforcement times and amounts, static gun amounts and also loot and vehicle settings.
4. Configurable for endless combinations with full instructions on how to change it up.


V2.1 Install instructions and how to configure in download from https://github.com/redned70/DMSStaticMissions

 V1.0 & V2.0 Install instruction (set Ai and difficulty) and images in download from above link as zips inside v2.1.

After following instructions, DMS does not start.

I double checked install and cant see a problem with install.

@Pistashio check the altis_config file to make sure you don't have a comma missing or extra in there.

errors calling the main files tend to be from that file or if someone has decided to add things into the main config.sqf to balance static missions in there (I never got it working in there but works fine in the map config) and lastly if you changed the mission text make sure the lines finish correctly and aren't missing the semi-colon

@red_ned Going to give it another go today. I never changed anything on the install. DMS would not even start but I think I could be at fault here, FTP issues. Ill try again today and let you know.

Ha i was just noticing this last night. I was sure i uploaded a pbo after i stopped the server then tested it out yet it was like the server did not even red the pbo and just read a old version of the pbo. i restarted the server again and this time it read the pbo correctly. Sadly I do not think ill get to this tonight but will keep you updated.

6. Repack altis_config.sqf into PBO
7.  Put a3_dms.pbo into /@ExileServer/addons/ on server and start.

In 6. this is not the altis_config.sqf file need to be repack into PBO but the a3_dms folder and then                  in 7. you don't need to put the a3_dms.pbo into  ...\@exileServer\addons because it's in there.

I wait and Nothing append !

 @M-RYS when you edit the file you then need to put it back in and replace your old PBO with the new one, personally I take one file out at a time and repack then overwrite the existing pbo on the server.

Do it however you want with the PBO file manager but you must upload to server replacing old one or nothing will ever happen
