Well usually I would find this mission fairly easy, but now that I started playing the campaign again, this mission has been really nagging me. Two things:
1- When I approach the town, a BMP shows up right in the middle of town and I cant rescue the hostages without blowing up the bmp.
2- I never got this before, but now when I approach the town, I get an objective failed alert saying I was detected and now all the hostages were dead.
Well those two things have halted my progress in the campaign but now I am also curious what these odd "cheats" that appear in the campaign missions are. (You have to unPBO the resistance campaign to see them)
On Hostages, I found a trigger called (cheat2), it had no axis, but it said in the on activation field: Setdammage 1 foreach units in (1list), or something similar... I think it kills all the East guys on the map, although I have no idea how to activate it. There are other triggers labled CHEAT in various other missions but their purpose is less obvious. Can these "cheats" be activated somehow? I would like to know, but just for the fun of knowing
Oh heres what I found in the Init.sqs in the 08hostages.noe folder:
? CheatsEnabled : Hint "DEBUG:\nNot defined - initializing"
