GLT Respawn Template Fix
[GLT] Legislator & sxp2high
Since ArmA 3 1.16 the Bohemia Interactive Respawn Template is killing the player by default thus breaking all missions. Check: http://feedback.arma3.com/view.php?id=18359
Until this is officially fixed, sxp2high and I created a fix for that! It will also be included in the next GLT Mod patch.
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.
You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.
And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!
When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods
In order to get it working, the mission must have the value respawnOnStart = 0; in the description.ext file.
It wont work automatically fix all previously created missions but it will help missiondesigners to avoid the instant kill.
