If it didn't work then you obviously didn't do it correctly, and you give no explanation as to what you did and didn't do,
Im sorry but it didn't work and it was really dissaponting. I just want a simple script that i can put in the init field of a soldier and be able to edit its respawn time AFTER death.
i tried the methods you gave but they didn't work.
I know the tutorial works, as this is the basic setup for a base respawn for a marker, if that not what you wanted,
it doesn't mean that it doesn't work, it dont work for what you are trying to do.
A base respawn is one of many ways to setup a respawn, and by default in the game a base respawn is nuts and bolts basic.
A base respawn requires but 3 things:
1. A marker named after the faction of your choice placed on the map somewhere you wish to respawn
2. A description.ext with the basic respawn codes:
3. Final is to put the description.ext into your mission folder.
respawn = base; (base is the marker you put down, the faction is indicated by the marker name, that decides who respawns there)
respawndelay = 3; (respawndelay is the amount of time before a unit respawns, in this case 3, which is 3 seconds)
If something isn't working for you then ask, and be specific about what you want, as said theres many ways to respawn.
I wouldn't waste my time building a tutorial on something if I knew it didn't work, I know it works, I have used it many times
in missions over the years, as well as many others have.
