View Full Version : New mission But People get kicked when starting
09-13-2005, 09:06 AM
I have been working on a new mission alternate history NY Harbor and had it working fine but went back and complete redid it cause I didn't like some of the thing and the way the stupid DD's just run ashore with out following the path I provided ..added mnes....lots of mines in a dense area, possibly my undoing? any way..when people try to connect they all get bumped off when it finally starts..I hate to redo the the whole thing I tried removing the mines..no luck..any help appreciate.
also I read int one of the tutorials that every thing needs a waypoint Even stationary land object?? is this even necessary even for a docked ship??

Unfortunately yes, all platforms need a waypoint !! It's kind of
silly but its the way the game handles the info. Even mines need
a waypoint. Just create a straight line waypoint and give the
non-moving units a 0 speed. The editor is kinda touchy about
how the player sets it up so sometimes it's a trial & error sort

Mines I can understand because other wise there would not be and field and also radius area but a stationary gun on land ??
any way I have made a waypoint an all objects since and even tried removing mines (" I had a very dense field protecting some ships from torpedos...torps can go over subnets" ) and a few aother things , so what will make it so ather players are kicked off when they connect to the game??thanks

Are you trying to use your mission as multiplayer?
Or are the players getting kicked using just single mission by

Its a MP Mission, I'm getting in OK but not the other players,
I don;t have problems with other MP games, and I have checked out everything making sure it is set as MP number of players Way-points on all objects Etc,
I'm thinking that possibly it was the mines but cause I have a dense field protecting some Docked ships so that torpedo's have about a 50 50 chance of either hitting a mine or hitting a ship, I would use a subnet but torps go Right over them.,
I tried to remove them but it still didn't work?
I wish there was a better way to protect them
if I lower the mines as you suggested in an other post will the torpedo's still hit them ?
I have since restarted the mission but I'm still having problem
for the help!!

1 more thing I figures out is the the DD will take the straightest path to me coming in to the bay which happens to be LAND as because the bay is curved so I have to take a curve path to get in but the stupid DD's don;t see the land between me and them?
I thought that the AI was supposed to be smart enough to see things like DOCK, LAND, SUBNETS, ETC, the only thing I have seen them ovoid is other ships, I have tried setting them all to Elite but they are still Stupid?

Main problem with MP is that every player has different mods
installed. Some will not effect MP but some will. I expect that
all players will have to be modded exactly the same to get the
MP to work properly. Can't help you more then that because
I have never created a MP game to test this out....

Jim, just a thought, if you can add way-points to mines, can a single mine be made to look like it has broke loose it's mooring and drifting in the sea?
I know this did happen from time to time, it might be interesting if a ship struck a loose mine or worst still if the player sub hit it.

Don't rightly know, Col. but when in doubt, EXPERIMENT !!!
