Spawning a function the right way.....

Question

Hi Folks,

I'm trying to modify the _ambient Overfly script to use "GOM Carpet Bombing" script/function to attack an player randomly.

GOMs Carpet bombing on Armaholic

As GOM said I can call the function on the Server with following line over infistar (F3):
 

_bomb = ["",[0.5,0.5],270,20,100] spawn GOM_fnc_carpetbombing;

//first parameter gives the bomb type, empty string will make the script use a random bomb, mod bombs will also be used
//second parameter holds the position that should be bombed
//third parameter holds the direction
//fourth parameter defines the amount of bombs to be dropped
//fifth parameter defines the average distance for the bombs to spread

 

the given one in theScript:

_bomb = ["",screenToWorld [0.5,0.5],270,20,100] spawn GOM_fnc_carpetbombing;

doesnt work for me.

 

Now I'm trying to call this in the 

ExileServer_system_event_ambientFlyOver_start.sqf

at the following position with this altered line (_bomb is a private variable):

...
//_waypoint setWaypointStatements ["true", "'Ambient Fly Over - Reached player...' call ExileServer_util_log;"];

_waypoint setWaypointStatements ["true", '_bomb = ["",[(_targetPosition select 0),(_targetPosition select 1)],270,48,250] spawn GOM_fnc_carpetbombing;'];
...

I tried a lot of kombinations of () {} [] '' "" ... but I'm not able to get a call that is functioning.

The script throws errors os doesnt start when called.

when it starts and calls the function I got an error:

from here the error in line 88 is repeating constantly...

It would be nice, if anyone can help me get this thing running.

PS: spent two days for this little line, trying to get it running :-(

@TheFarFlash You have the files download from armaholic correct? I see that it's calling for a custom function (GOM_fnc_carpetbombing). If you could show some of the errors as well.

Hi,

the files are downloaded and "installed" correct.

When I call the function over the console in Infistar, and use manually given coordinates like

_bomb = ["",[26415.2,6314.5],270,20,100] spawn GOM_fnc_carpetbombing;

the call is functioning without any errors.

The thing is, that I dont know how to alter the line / part ini the 

ExileServer_system_event_ambientFlyOver_start.sqf

...
//_waypoint setWaypointStatements ["true", "'Ambient Fly Over - Reached player...' call ExileServer_util_log;"];

_waypoint setWaypointStatements ["true", '_bomb = ["",[(_targetPosition select 0),(_targetPosition select 1)],270,48,250] spawn GOM_fnc_carpetbombing;'];
...

so the script calls the function, when the jet arrives the given waypoint.

;-)

Can anyone help me to correct this so that the script will spawn the carpetbombing ?

Thx

Hello @TheFarFlash,

You might be better off asking 'Grumpy Old Man' aka GOM about this script.  Also, there are at least 2 versions of this script, BOTH from him.

You never stated which version you have as well.

 

I would also set a trigger point on  the GROUND and when you walk in this area, have it 'fire off' this script.  You MUST NOT BE AN ADMIN when testing this!  Something tells me it works when you run it via IS console as you're an admin and no where else.

 

LOGGING OUT and trying via the ground trigger will tell you if this an IS problem or a scripting problem.

I do KNOW that some types of bombs/stuff (by default) are 'blacklisted' for regular players and some scripts also block bombs as well.

 

Try it as a 'regular player' and I think you will see that it does NOT work, thus indicating you need to adjust your IS settings.  If it does work, then it is a scripting issue.

 

:)
