Hi! good day! Im pretty new on this game, and im studying the free mission editor.

i've been trying to create a LAN deathmatch with vehicles that can be played with my friends... and the thing that's been bothering me is respawning players... looked everywhere for it... but the normal way doesnt seem to work.

so i thought the reason for that maybe because the arma that im playing is free.

i only found scripts for AI respawns and vechicle respawns... those work... so i think that the player respawn might be still possible..
even though i downloaded a few scenarios that work without any addons,
i still want to know how to create missions on my own

anyhows... i hope someone can help me with this. many thanks!

I use this script in arma 2, is this the one your using?

btw. I don't know if you can run mods in Arma 2 free, but they say you can run scripts...

/* Respawn Values:
* 0 / NONE = No respawn
* 1 / BIRD = Respawn as seagull
* 2 / INSTANT = Respawn where you just died
* 3 / BASE = Respawn in base (markername should be "respawn_west" (_west/_east/_guerrila/_civilian)
* 4 / GROUP = If AI left in group, respawn in that
* 5 / SIDE = Not Working?
*/
respawn = BASE;
respawndelay = 15; // Time delay in seconds for respawn to occur (NEVER use 0)

thanks but i think this is the one that didnt work on me (or probably it just wasn't done right)...

is this the one you'll save it as "description.ext?" i dont really know where to put this file, since im using arma 2 free, file locations/folders are a bit different.

*yeap, arma 2 free cant use mods... but it does run scripts...

**in case you want to know what script worked for me: it was norris ai unit/vehicle respawns scripts

thanks thanks

You need to create a Description.ext script (shown in spoiler) and put it in the mission's folder your creating. Your PVP mission folder can be found under ""My documents","ArmA 2"", then look in the different folders that you'll see for your mission's folder that was created when you saved your mission in the editor.

# warris : can someone please help me, i don't have a clue at all how to create respawns nothing is working.

ok so what you need to do is on your desktop make a text document in notepad once you have done that save it as a description.ext then copy and paste this in there :
// Mission Header
class Header
{
gameType = COOP;
minPlayers = 2;
maxPlayers = 14;
};

ShowGPS = 1;
showCompass = 1;
showWatch = 1;
showMap = 1;

onLoadMission = "The Uprising";
OnLoadMissionTime = True;
OnLoadIntroTime = True;

respawn= "3"; //* 0 or NONE = No respawn,* 1 or BIRD = Respawn as seagull,* 2 or INSTANT = Respawn where you just died,* 3 / BASE = Respawn in base (markername should be "respawn_west" (_west/_east/_guerrila/_civilian),* 4 / GROUP = If AI left in group, respawn in that

respawndelay= 10; //Set the time of how long it takes to respawn
respawnDialog=true;

Then once you have done that save it again and put it in the folder where your missions is for example my one is in : C:\Users\Your Username\Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\[MTF]%20RCT1\missions\The Uprising.Chernarus

Then it should work if not then PM me and i will try to help oh and BTW if you try to test this in the sp editor it will not work so for this i normanlly leave untill last and test it in MP.
