What Is MSO?
Multi Session Operations is a modular mission framework. Essentially it is a collection of scripts that create a persistent, living scenario in which the player operates. Unlike regular missions that have pre-scripted objectives, MSO procedurally generates enemy forces that are unpredictable and (semi) random. Players have to think beyond the mere tactical level and build up the intelligence picture, carrying out recce patrols to identify enemy locations and conduct deliberate attacks to neutralise them. Everything is persistent, including equipment, ammo, vehicles and even player lives. MSO is designed specifically for Dedicated Server use.

Recommended Settings / Peformance
Due to the dynamic nature of MSO and its reliance on scripting to generate ambience and dynamic enemy, it can be resource intensive. The default settings are the recommended ones for most maps (although I would recommend All Factions for ambient air if used). If you have a large map with lots of locations (Chernarus) or a large number of players you will want to consider disabling or dialling down ambience or enemy.

If you enable ALL the modules, please do not ask us why it performs so poorly.

Kudos to the guys who released this one - I had little to do with it, so well done to all. Welcome to all the new team members helping us out with testing, etc/

From what I understand, this release is mainly bugfixes. v4.4 will be all about performance improvements and rearchitecting code in preparation for A3.

Yes, reproduced this. Will post a fix in the next 24 hours. Thanks for the feedback, I suspect it maybe the units used in the linger mission, as this functionality works for other missions.

Krem

I personally tested this and it worked fine for me. Can you post a ticket if you can repro? Are you using Mando?

No tup. Thats the wierd thing. It is POSSIBLY associated with lag, but no mando running.

Wasn't even running mods (apart from newest CBA). Will test some more.

What was your server FPS? could be related.

Hey team,

I tried the CAS Predator again, and have found the same problem. Other missiles (including hellfires from Apaches) work fine and hit the target, but the predator ones have real problems. The FPS was 20-25 on the server and 35ish on my client.

I am running the latest beta, and haven't seen any problems with the 4.1 MSO.

I will re-run the test on 4.1 and do a like for like. It is possible that it is the rest of my mission that is causing it, and that MSO on it's own is fine. If this is the case I will just comment out the CAS.

LOVING the new AirOps.

Hi great mission ....

One thing Ive noticed is that the Trigger men for the IEDs while using EOD mod will sometimes get stuck in the pulling out a weapon animation and keep looping that animation until shot in the foot...
at which point they go prone and will pull the gun but they will never shoot you even if you stand in front of them...

any suggestions ?

Okies guys I think it IS something to do with how 4.3 is ...... I tried MSO4.1 predator (its still lurchi's latest) and it is fine. Even at lower FPS the missiles hit. I noticed that with the 4.1 the missiles fly straight to target but in 4.3 it is like they are trying to hit topdown.

Contact Reezo! ;) Or you can disable EOD in the mission params. TUP_IED gives you similar immersion for IED etc.

Dingbat reported that the hellfires were not causing damage (when not using Mando) so we only changed the round used by UAV - switching shell for Hellfire.

OLD > [LDL_logic_object,[0,0,0],_pos,1,"Sh_125_HE",0.1]spawn LDL_hellfire;	
NEW > [LDL_logic_object,[0,0,0],_pos,1,"M_Hellfire_AT",0.1]spawn LDL_hellfire;

Not sure how that changes the guidance?
