A question that must have been asked over a 100 times already here and answered over 100 times. ;)

FAQ
Arma Edit (can make description.ext that you could use for respawn)

If you actually searched you would have got your answer. Now I wonder... If you couldn't work out search, how are you going to interperate how to make the script!? :lol

Good luck!

Hi and :welcome to armaholic.

First this is no tech support question but mission one, so i move it to where it belongs.

Second, the mission maker decides what kind of mission creates, so if u die and u become a bird it's cause he decided not to allow respawns in that mission. Some other mission have respawns dialog implemented and some just some certain # of respawns available.

There is nothing you can do in the mission to change it, if u wanna change it you would have to edit the mission yourself and add the respawns to it.

PS jamiedr, relax :D

Mission editing is all about reading. I suggest you first take the time to read. Than try again.


Check your respawn type!

As Foxhound already said: mission editing is all about reading. And he even provided a link where to read about. And specially for you, here's the link again:

ok i have read it its not so much only this:

Respawn Options
respawn = RespawnType;

respawnDelay = DelayInSeconds;

respawnVehicleDelay = DelayInSeconds;




RespawnType Description
0 or "NONE" No respawn
1 or "BIRD" Respawn as a seagull
2 or "INSTANT" Respawn just where you died.
3 or "BASE" Respawn in base. Requires a marker named:
respawn_west
respawn_east
respawn_guerrila
respawn_civilian
Vehicle respawn in base requires a marker named:

respawn_vehicle_west
respawn_vehicle_east
respawn_vehicle_guerrila
respawn_vehicle_civilian

4 or "GROUP" Respawn in your group (if there's no AI left, you'll become a seagull).
5 or "SIDE" Respawn into an AI unit on your side (if there's no AI left, you'll become a seagull) - implemented in ArmA 1.08: with this respawn type, team switch is also available to any AI controlled playable units.


but still i dont know how i can change the respawn..



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ok i found how i can change respawn i have did it but when i whanne create a game i get this: Data file to short MpMissions/mp01seizethecity.sara.pbo
