  • Briefing problems.

    I am having difficulty getting a briefing to work within one of my missions. Adept seems to have come across this issue as well.

    Basically, I have my init file with the correct code in it, pointing to the "briefing.sql" but no matter how I save it, this way or that, it does not work.

    Am I missing something? Has something changed from 1.60 to 1.62.

    Anyone else having issues with briefings?

    I've copied working briefings to the current mission for testing purposes and still not been able to get it to work.

    Briefing is an sqf file as far as I know.
    init should read
    Code:
    execVM "briefing.sqf";
    Briefings are working fine since the last patch for me with no changes as to how I was using them before.

      I am using

      if (!(isNull player)) then //non-JIP player
      {

      [] execVM "briefing.sqf";

      };

      if (!isServer && isNull player) then //JIP player
      {
      waitUntil {!isNull player};

      [] execVM "briefing.sqf";

      };

        JIP briefing bug was fixed in the second or third A2 patch I think, unless they broke it again. Try the one I posted and see if it works.

        The other issue could be a misplaced semi-colon or bracket or something similar in the brefing.sqf. That will make the entire thing not show up and can be a real pain to find.

          Try opening the briefing in a script editing software (SQF Editor, Squint2(this one might be broken), etc). Programs like these tend to have formatting tools that help you make sure that you didn't miss a bracket or semicolon.

            Also, make sure you didnt by accident place another quote mark somewhere within the text of your briefing. That breaks stuff too...

              I have learned the hard way about using two apostrophes inplace of quotes in the briefing, sadly, that is not what caused this issue.

              Thanks everyone for the advice.

                _nul = [] execVM "briefing.sqf";

                  I'm sorry BLIP, just try that, or within some other syntax? I am not at my gaming rig at the moment so I cannot test.

                  Thanks.

                    I know I keep using the ampersand character in place of the word "and" and that breaks the briefing. But it's easy to debug, because it stops at the first time you use that character.

                      After what seemed like an eternity, I figured it out. LEA strikes again.
