  • Fix for The Great Battle SP campaign mission? (minor spoilers)

    Hi all,

    I posted this over at the BIS forums, too.

    If anyone here is playing the SP campaign, and can't get the Great Battle mission to complete:

    I disliked not being able to finish the Great Battle mission without using endmission, so I un-pbo'd the campaign, and poked around in this mission. I noticed that the trigger for switching to the counter-attack on the east base is:

    Code:
    expCond="(((count units e1)+(count units e2)+(count units e3)+(count units e4)) < 5) && hlaskajsoutu==1";

    I believe the problem is that there is no group e4. e1 and e3 are groups of T-72s; e2 is a group of BMPs; but if you search the mission.sqm for e4, the condition above is the only reference.

    I changed the condition to:

    Code:
    expCond="(((count units e1)+(count units e2)+(count units e3)) < 5) && hlaskajsoutu==1";

    and the mission worked fine. After I destroyed the last BMP, I got a radio message to attack the east base. I went over there, blew up the armor, and got the mission complete.

    If you want to fix your own campaign:
    1. Get a pbo utility (e.g. download Kegety's ArmA Tools in the download section at Armed Assault Zone)
    2. Go to \ArmA\Campaigns\
    3. Back up your ca.pbo! Make a copy, call it ca.orig.pbo
    4. Un-pbo ca.pbo
    5. Open the file \ArmA\Campaigns\ca\Missions\08Gryphons.Sara\missio n.sqm in a text editor
    6. Search for "e4" -- you should see the first line of code above. Replace with the second line of code.
    7. Re-pbo the ca directory.

    I'm running the Sprocket CZ 1.02 version. The usual disclaimers apply: try this at your own risk. Be sure to back up ca.pbo!

    If this was the problem, it doesn't say much for the playtesting. Next up -- poking around in Armored Fist...

    Please try this out and let me know if it works.

    Thanks,
    LR

          I just cheated my way through that one.

          Hit shift plus "-" on your numpad at the same time then type "endmission"

          I've completed the campaign and can safely say it was comically bad. There were a few decent missions but scripting bugs galore.

            thanks for all, but "shift"+"-" do nothing.
            what name is, on the controls options?

            I try all the button and i can't tape "endmission" somewhere.

            In fifteen days we get the european version and i hope the game will be right with no bugs..
