He can already set the distance from the player and his units at which the module can delete the not alive units (BIS_GC setVariable ["distanceObject", metersFromThePlayers, true]) and last, he can set if a unit doesn't have to be deleted by the Garbage Collector Module by putting this "this setVariable ["dontDelete", true, true]" inside the init box of the unit to not be deleted.

Hi OMAC!

It was at 1200m..but, for example, for the M230, according to this, the practical range is about 1500m..btw I've only changed the zeroing max distance, not the range of the weapon itself ;)

A2OA and A2 beta were updated with data for latest corepatch

I'm experiencing something weird with A2 Multiplayer CTI Warfare missions. It appears as if the server does not recognize a JIP as being a player. It was first experienced yesterday during a mission test using beta (but should admit I haven't done a JIP in A2 for a long while, if ever), then switched both machines over to current release and the same issue continued to occur there.

- I figure it's not the mission. I had a custom mission, then I ran one of the game's MP missions, then laid down a simple editor MP Warfare mission, and the same occurred in all three.

- I figure it's not the machine. I have two machines on LAN and regardless which machine was used for server or JIP player, the same occurred.

- The JIP player was the one experiencing the problems, the host was not affected.

- This is experienced in A2 (not OA), in beta and in "reverted-back-to" release version.

To reproduce, go into A2 and launch a multiplayer CTI Warfare mission, like "When Diplomacy Fails". Vote for commander AI and wait for missions to be assigned. Then have a JIP player join in on the opposing side.

The observations:

1) Stuttering movement of units and objects. Like two sessions in one occuring with a very slight desynch. The units fluctuate back and forth a few inches or a foot.

2) JIP player automatically receives units from the barracks, and calls them out to join (AI reinforce action)

3) If one of the units is mounted, JIP player cannot board or order them to disembark (response is "No can do", indicating belongs to server)

3) After all units appear, JIP player automatically teleports to nearby location, if available (AI fast travel).

For #'s 2), 3) and 4), I'm sure it results from the server running the AI Team_Update.sqf, which in a number of places is suspended when the leader becomes a player. The script continues to run, as though the server doesn't recognize the JIP player is a player. It's also supposed to run the OldSupportUpdate every few seconds when the leader is a player, and in my custom mission the OldSupportUpdate did not run, again supporting the thought that the server is not recognizing JIP player as a player.

I'm hoping someone can post back saying they don't experience it, though it would leave me clueless as to a cause.

---EDIT --------

Reverted back to beta.

Found it doesn't happen for player joining at start, only for JIP, so I can at least continue the mission testing using join at start. I'm positive the server is reading the JIP player as an AI.

I did one run using "disable AI." Upon JIP there was no base, on map there were no markers. Approaching a town held by Resistance, the outer camp signboard showed West flag (<Host side... JIP was East).

Also, the custom mission had SOM synched to each playable unit with SecOps in the pools, but is scripted so that only players get SecOp assignments, not AI. The support function is scripted to run only for players, not AI.

For host and joined player the Secops and supports occurred. For a JIP player, they did not. This appears to affirm the server considers the JIP player to be an AI.

One odd thing about the M249 series of weapons in game is that some (all?) of the ammo boxes don't have any tracers. As far as I know standard practice in real life is to have one tracer round (M856) for every four standard rounds (M855) in a belt. Would this be an easy thing to fix? Would help with longer range shooting for sure.

@OpusFmSPol: does it happens only on Warfare missions? Or even on other kind of MP missions?

It definitely has an effect outside Warfare. Tested using an editor mission. Interesting results.

Placed two units, Host1 (player) and JIP1 (playable). Also placed two repeating radio triggers, to create units to join each caller.

- Radio Alpha: "Create Unit (Host1)"

- Condition: this && isPlayer Host1
if (isNil "grp") then {grp = createGroup west};
unit = grp createUnit ["USMC_Soldier", getMarkerPos "JIPmarker", [], 0, "FORM"];
[unit] join group Host1;
unit move position Host1;

- Radio Bravo: "Create Unit (JIP1)"

- Condition: this && isPlayer JIP1
if (isNil "grp") then {grp = createGroup west};
unit = grp createUnit ["USMC_Soldier", getMarkerPos "JIPmarker", [], 0, "FORM"];
[unit] join group JIP1;
unit move position JIP1;

Observations:

- JIP could not join after Host created a unit. JIP went straight from unit selection to debriefing.

- JIP could join so long as Host hadn't created a unit. That's where it was interesting....

Host1
-----
Calling a teammate performed as expected:
- Unit spawned.
- Host called out "2 join 1".
- unit joined.
- unit took up a formation position.
- unit moved with Host.
- unit obeyed commands.

JIP1:
-----
- Two units spawned. (should have been one)
- JIP called out "2 join 1" and "1 join 1" (1 being the JIP player - ???)
- One unit joined; the other stood still and did not.  The other unit was entirely unresponsive.
- Joined unit took up a formation position.
- Joined unit moved with JIP.
- Joined unit obeyed commands.
- Host shot joined unit, and was told to "Check Fire!" by unit 1:1:B 2.
- JIP soon got fed up with the unresponsive unit, shot and killed him. "Cease fire!" message came from unit 1:1:D 1.
- JIP shot and killed the joined unit.  "Cease fire!" message came from unit 2.
- JIP wanted more units to play with and called the trigger four more times.  One unit spawned with each call.
- JIP called out "1 join 1" for each unit.
- Each unit called "ready" but never moved.
- Each unit was entirely unresponsive.
- JIP began shooting each of the unresponsive units.
- Each unit gave a "Cease Fire" message from unit 1:1:D 1.
- Host called the JIP trigger: one of the unresponsive units 1:1:D 1 respawned.

new test:
---------
- JIP called Host trigger: two units appeared, one joined host and the other unresponsive.
- JIP called JIP trigger: unresponsive unit respawned and another unit appeared which joined JIP.
- After each had a unit, Host and JIP calling triggers did not work.
- JIP shot unresponsive unit.  No "Cease Fire!" message appeared though unit was still alive.

Thank you Opus for this very interesting and detailed report! Does this happens only on A2 and not on A2:OA and A2:CO?

Does this happens only on beta or even on stable branch?

The WF issue is happening in A2 beta and A2 stable. It does not happen in OA at all, stable or beta.

I run CO, so when OA runs the A2 content is included.

The JIPtest was hasty and flawed, and I don't know if it was a worthless test or not:

- Forgot triggers run on all machines,

- Failed to add isServer and !isServer checks, and

- Was unaware when a group is created it will only exist until added units are removed. Once made empty, it becomes grpNull.

(Wiki said in A1 empty groups remained, and in A3 they are removed. It didn't say about A2)

I had to revise the JIP test to be much more reliable. Once I got it working correctly I found that empty groups in game do not carry to a JIP player. An empty group created by the server in game was nil for the JIP player joining the mission. It happened in A2, A2 beta, OA and OA beta, so I figure it must be a known issue. The only apparent value of it was that the test showed the server did recognize JIP as a player, which again left me wondering what's happening in A2 WF JIP, why the team update acts like JIP is not a player.

I'm thinking about doing an uninstall and reinstall this weekend, just to see if that changes anything.

Couldn't get an error for it, but all the people i play with are reporting a loss of about half of muzzle sounds, players and AI. (headless client or not) You would think it would be a mod conflict, but two things convince me it is simply a netcode problem: a) This never occurs in singleplayer, at all. 2) The same people reporting the error, which is everyone playing on the server, hear the sounds every once and a while. It happens intermittently. Impact and dust effects from the rounds are always counted and played, so I am not sure if it is a cut off from the maximum sound samples setting, which has not changed.

Is anyone else getting this error? We switched back to 1.62 and every sound is played as intended.

The A2 WF JIP problem might be associated with group being null.

In a bare-bones editor WF mission I used a custom Server_PlayerConnected.sqf and ran "diag_log format" commands in it. Running the mission in A2 and in OA, these are the results from the .rpt logs that appear relevant:

arma2.rpt:

"Custom onPlayerConnected is running"

"onPlayerConnected: _team = B 1-1-A"
"onPlayerConnected: _data = []"

"onPlayerConnected: _data = []"

"onPlayerConnected: _team = O 1-1-A"

Client: Remote object 9:11 not found

I'm still chasing down when or where the "Remote object not found" originates. It's seems persistent in OA's .rpt, but not always in A2. A2's .rpt tends to throw different results at times.

I looked closely at Garbage Collector, couldn't find anything there that appeared to be a cause.

I can't test the MPF because it uses a hard path ("\ca") rather than soft ("ca\"). I have no addon experience to try running a custom. I do have an oddball question about it though:

MPframework.sqf used to set path using this:

BIS_MP_Path = "\ca\Modules\MP\"; //"
BIS_PathMPscriptCommands = BIS_MP_Path + "data\scriptCommands\"; //"
BIS_PathMPscriptCommandsCustom = BIS_MP_Path + "data\scriptCommandsCustom\"; //"
BIS_PATH_SQF = "data\scripts\"; //"

The meaningless hash comments at the end ( // " ) confused me when I first came across them, until I saw this in the SOM's init.sqf:

BIS_SOM_stdPath = "ca\missions\som\data\";

//"// - Comment to ensure the escape sequence above doesn not destroy syntax highlighting.

I couldn't understand what it meant, but it left me the impression there was a purpose for a hash comment to follow setting a path.

Now MPframework.sqf uses this:

BIS_MP_Path = "\ca\Modules\MP\";
BIS_PathMPscriptCommands = BIS_MP_Path + "data\scriptCommands\";
BIS_PathMPscriptCommandsCustom = BIS_MP_Path + "data\scriptCommandsCustom\";
BIS_PATH_SQF = "data\scripts\";

Can anyone inform me please what the SOM comment means? I'm not familiar with "escape sequence" or "destroy syntax highlighting", What does that refer to? Is a hash comment important when setting a path?

The "Object not found" .rpt message is frequently spawned on OA when in MP environment. I'n not sure if those can be the culprit of the errors of A2 WF MP. Are you sure that the JIP error is only on warfare module of A2? Is it present even on A2 stable or only on beta?

Thank you for your support OpusFmSPol!

Hi PiZZADOX! Are you using some kind of sound mod? Does it happens only on a specific server or in every server you've played?

Thank you!

Are you sure that the JIP error is only on warfare module of A2?

No, digging through the WF scripts I've come up empty (but still digging). It might be something else, and Warfare just makes it noticeable.

Of the four observations:

1 - Choppy AI movement (like continuous desynch)

2 - Units auto-joining

3 - Joined unit vehicles belonging to server

4 - AI fast travel

Items# 2, 3 and 4 are observed due to a Warfare script, but item# 1 - the choppy movement - occurs outside Warfare. It's not script-related. It occurs with ping of 2 or 3, and there's no desynch chain.

I placed three large groups, about 30 guys, running around an airfield in circular waypoints. Host and JIP stood by on the side watching. in OA stable they ran smoothly for host and JIP. In A2 stable they were observed on JIP machine making the same choppy movements seen in WF. It was not observed on host.

The logs again showed "remote object not found" every time the JIP player joined. Each time joined, the object ID indexed up by one.

Is it present even on A2 stable or only on beta?

It's present in both, A2 stable and beta.

The prior logs were from beta, and here are logs from a run in stable:

A2:

"Custom onPlayerConnected is running"

"onPlayerConnected: _team = O 1-1-A"
"onPlayerConnected: _data = []"

OA:

"Custom onPlayerConnected is running"
"onPlayerConnected: _name = Opus"
"onPlayerConnected: _team = B 1-1-A"
"onPlayerConnected: _data = []"

"Custom onPlayerConnected is running"
"onPlayerConnected: _name = Guest"
"onPlayerConnected: _team = O 1-1-A"
"onPlayerConnected: _data = []"
Client: Remote object 7:11 not found

"Custom onPlayerConnected is running"
"onPlayerConnected: _name = Guest"
"onPlayerConnected: _team = O 1-1-A"

Client: Remote object 9:11 not found

- For whatever reason, OA always finds the JIP player's group, but in A2 the group is never found.

- In every instance when the JIP player joins, a "remote object not found" occurs and the ID indexes up by one for each time joined.

- While the same indexing "not found" occurs in A2 and OA, no problem occurs in OA, but in A2 the problem occurs.

I tell you, the way it effects A2 stable and beta, and does not effect OA, leaves me wondering if it isn't somehow related to "GameSpy" shutdown?

(As I said before, I hadn't JIP'd in A2 in a really long time. The SOM-WF compatibility testing brought me back to it.)

Thank you for your support OpusFmSPol!

And again, we thank you goliath86, you and Dwarden both, for your support! As in :ok:"Awesome!!":respekt:

Just my 2 cents.

Actually this visual behavior of moving units (stuttering/sliding/teleporting) in A2 is like this since day one.

In OA since 1.60 there are 2 different commands in basic.cfg for syncing units close to you and fare from you, those reducing load and improving visual experience.

MinErrorToSend=<limit>;

Minimal error to send updates across network.

Using a smaller value can make units observed by binoculars or sniper rifle to move smoother at the trade off of

increased network traffic.

Default: 0.001 (was 0.01 until ARMA 2:OA version 1.60, ARMA 2 version 1.11 uses 0.01)

MinErrorToSendNear=<limit>;

Minimal error to send updates across network for near units.

Using larger value can reduce traffic sent for near units. Used to control client to server traffic as well.

Introduced in ArmA 2 1.60, Default: 0.01

In A2 there is just one command in basic.cfg for syncing units close to you and fare from you, making both appear stuttering/sliding/teleporting.

MinErrorToSend=<limit>;

Minimal error to send updates across network.

Using a smaller value can make units observed by binoculars or sniper rifle to move smoother at the trade off of

increased network traffic.

Default: 0.01

Since feature #69249 was added, headlights in both daytime and night time have become incredibly bright (to the point of effectively blinding players even during the middle of the day).

It would be great if the brightness could be toned done a bit.
