In a mission I have a group leader which is "grouped" with 2 markers. This way the leaders group start position will be randomized and become one out of possible 3, original start position + 2 more represented by the markers. This as you know is a MP safe old school BIS function. You just have to put the leading unit's special on "None" and the rest of the group members on "In Formation".
However, depending on where the group actually starts (depending on the randomness with markers) I want the units to join a another group which is in the area of the groups actual start position (meaning after the randomness is set).
I have a trigger measuring "Any group Member Present" on all three locations (timeout 10 sec.), and if the trigger fires the leaders group joins the closest group. In SP this works perfectly, the group joins the group closest to their actual start position.
In MP however, it seems like the units always join the group closest to their original (before marker randomness) start position.
Do triggers measuring present/not present work safely in MP? Or is the only good solution to measure the groups actual position just on the server as in: "Any group Member Present", "this AND isServer"?
All the groups involved are AI, local to the server.
Thanks in advance,
