Revive script for ACE2 Wounding system


First of all, most of the code that uses this revive script it's inside ACE2, so most of the credits goes to ACE team and specially to Xeno for his great wounding module.

This script only controls the number of lives, the messages and the markers, everything else it's controlled by ACE wounding system, so read ACE manual for more info about healing carrying wounded and all that stuff.

It has a lot of configurable options, read the readme for more info. Still it tries to use the less resources possible, there is no loops server-side and only one globalvariable used, so it's a really light revive script.

Addon version:
This also contains an addon version which is still undocumented.
Please use the advanced modules addon( only required to load it for editing the mission) for now, as it includes ingame documentation that can help you. The only module that needs syncronization its the medevac one, sincronice with it any IA medic or heli that you want. Apart from that the addon version its pretty much undocumented till i have some free time to finish it.

- Fully compatible with ACE wounding system, to be precise it doesn't work without it.
- Persistent lifes stored server side. So if you leave with X lives even if you reconnect you will have the same amount of lifes. Also other info like player position and gear can be saved on disconect.
- PvP ready, you can limit the messages, death markers, ... by side
- Mesages and map markers for wounded(configurable)
- Tested sucesfully in a lot of coop missions up to 40 players, and pvp misions up to 60 players.
- Integrated IA medevac. IA hospital zone, and medevac by heli.

Installation / Usage:
For detailed info check the included readme!

Known issues:
There is a 0.01% chance that when you heal a uncons player he will be healed but stuck on death animation, if that
hapens you can use the fixheadbug under ACE options to workaround it. Its a ACE bug, but i can’t find a way to
reproduce it. It also hapens without using this script ^^.

Author notes:
As always use at your own risk! . Any feedback would be welcome, sorry if the used english isn't totally correct, but as you can imagine it's not my language.
Edit: if anybody wonders about version number... well all previous version where Spanish only that's why i haven't post it.

Credits & Thanks:
Thanks to CHS comunity for using it on all his missions and Arma2LA for all that feedback.
