Damn, again with this..
 :P

Is there any dangers in skipping missions (ENDMISSION), or does something break down if I do?

EDIT:
Got the following error message in 'Into Obscurity' when choked WOLF 2 and started driving around in the car looking a way to Costa or whomever:
Code: [Select]
Error in expression <awn DAC_fShowRadio;
_searcharea  = call compile ((_zskill select 10) select 0);
>Error position: <compile ((_zskill select 10) select 0);

Manos:
There's a chance for trouble when you find Costa; you can order him to some combat mode and stuff but if you then OK him to show his idea he will be stuck in them.
So if you set him on combat for example it gets really annoying to wait for the guy lay down somewhere being afraid of contact, and as you know it can take a while for the AI to wake from these combat slumbers it goes into.. Probably wise to snap him back to whatever modes Costa was prior joining player's group if the player OKs him to show his idea.

There's also these in the rpt
Code: [Select]
23:47:03 String STR_manos2305 not found
23:47:03 String STR_quadtipp3 not found

Then, if Costa is wounded you can waste your FAKs healing him even though it requires the custom healing thingy to be used. You can 'remove' default actions with uiEventHandler, dunno if there's other ways too.

EDIT 2:
Ok, now I see what you did there :P

Too bad Arma's user action system is absolute horror show.. Almost 20 years and they haven't realized to fix that (well, they don't seem to care to fix the absolutely idiotic way doors etc are opened either..). >:(
Really fun to go hunting for the pixel to point at to get some god damn action showing.  :dry:

Still at a loss as what to do next after collecting all sorts of crap  :scratch:

EDIT3:
Almost forgot to mention:
Found the guy with the smoke nades so went with those.

Cool, didn't expect you testing it again! Much appreciated! :good:

That script error comes out of the DAC... No way I can fix that I think.

Will do, thanks for the idea!


I created a small "walkthrough" for the Manos mission. If you're interested, check the "additional info" section in the first BIF post.

I suppose you found the powder sugar and the heatpacks in Manos' shack but didn't find the workshop or realize you can create the bomb in there? There's a trigger inside "Create smoke bomb" (if you found the main ingredients) and if something is missing, the player character will tell what it is.

When the player first finds the sugar and the heatpacks he says that maybe he could create a smoke bomb. I will add the sentence: "But I'll probably need a workbench or something like that." So that the player keeps his eyes open for the workshop too. Then he will know what's missing.

Hey undeceived,

I just retried this campaign and I am already stuck with the first mission. Even when I boot up the PC with a pulled monitor cable to avoid the monitor's brightness to alert the guard, he always finds me. What am I doing wrong?

Hi mathias, if you're not lying on the ground or crouching, he will always catch you. Booting up with the monitor cable doesn't make him catch you, he only will say something about the company and that's it.
He'll catch you depending your stance or if you leave the back door open (then he'll check out what's going on).

I suppose you're playing with the latest version found here?

I am playing version 1.4 which can also be found on Steam.
I am unhappy to report there is a new bug in here. I paid attention to my stance and closed the door, and suddenly, a few seconds before the USB stick pinging to signal that the copy is complete the door busts open and the guard arrives. I loaded my savegame twice to make sure I did not accidentally hit the action menu.

I'll check this out. Thanks a lot!

Normally it should go like this:
Pick lock, enter building, close the entrance door, crouch, pick office door lock, boot up PC and copy stuff, pull stick/shut down PC, leave.

The guard will catch you if:
He has a line of sight on you outside, if he sees you standing in the office.

He'll go inside the building and check out the office if:
You leave the first (entrance) door open and he sees it open. But, if you're ready and finished copying, you can hide between the cars so that he passes you while going to the office.

Hi Undeceived,

sorry for getting back a bit late to you, but the key was the open first (outer) door of the Garage. Now it worked and I can see if I can do the next mission.

I did not find much time for playing, but Into Obscurity is as impossible as always. Never mind which door I choose, I am always met with quick death. Will I break the campaign if I cheat-endmission?
