Revive Script


I've had a couple of people request this so the old dinosaur is back. Its essentially the old Arma 2 Revive v05 ported to work in Arma 3.

This package of scripts creates playable units that fall unconscious when killed, which can then be revived. Enabling the ability to revive and heal other players, along with the combination of revive and respawn can really enrich your mission. The scripts can be used to enforce co-operation between players as you'll need to stick together and help one another to successfully complete a mission and they can also be used to limit the number of lives given to each player in respawn missions. These canned scripts take the guess work out of building respawn and revive into your mission and be used with the AI-enabled or disabled in the description.ext or at the mission briefing screen.

SP compatible
MP compatible
JIP compatible
AI enabled/AI disabled compatible

Known issues:
- If you spawn into an unconscious unit that carries a pistol when you are revived you may be armed with your secondary weapon. However, when you shoot the rifle on your back fires. The only way I've found to resolve this bug is to respawn and be revived.
- There are some standard Titles and other standard sections added in the included files in the description.ext so integration of your own scripts that uses dialogs, titles or sounds with norrin revive may generate a lot of errors.
