Player death respawn at body




Im trying to add a custom death screen to my server as shown here: http://opendayz.net/threads/death-screen-and-sound.18718/

However. When i die i get this error in the console:



In my custom compile.sqf:

player_death = compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "custom\player_death.sqf";

This gives the error, allthough i do not edit server_playerdied.sqf


player_death = compile preprocessFileLineNumbers "\z\addons\dayz_code\compile\player_death.sqf";

This works, however no death screen now :(


Custom player_death.sqf copied directly from dayz epoch github:


Soo this is the code i have (copied from my file)



My server_playerDied.sqf:


Directly from the denizio linux epoch installer:




Soooo as far as i know, all my files are normal and the _playerID should exist.

Im not really sure how the death event works, as in what is called first. I tried logging the id in the server_playerDied.sqf, which just brought the error to that line. I tried logging the playerid in player_death.sqf file, but the log never showed up (presumably because of the error cancellign it.


HOWEVER, the deathscreen shows up when i add it. Its jsut that i dont respawn fresh. Instead i respawn with my gear at my body...


If you need any more files shown, just ask!

I really want this death screen :3

1 cutRsc ["DeathScreen","BLACK OUT",3];

Change it to 

100 cutRsc ["DeathScreen","BLACK OUT",3];



Hmm i tired that, no success.

This is my new custom player_died.sqf



In my init.sqf i have a link to the custom compile.sqf after loadign the normal one.

This is how my custom compile looks:



my init.ssqf:



I tried all day, no use :(


(appreciate the help)

      Our server is running however when someone gets killed it looks like it's using the standard revive with the defibrillator and you can only revive once per spawn. How do you change that to unlimited revives or to use the multigun with the heal player attachment?

      The loot spawning on my server will respawn or cycle right infrnt of you if you move more than 5m away or if someone else near you moves 5ft away. I check player_spawncheck.sqf and it looks fine.

I have been playing around with it just trying to see if i can figure it out but if anyone knows what i should do or can at least point me in the right direction it would be a huge help.

      I know a few servers and myself have noticed the time the loot respawn is pretty fast after being looted. Anyway to slow the time down?

      Death messages script?
    • By Birgitte
      Players and myself have been having trouble looting our corpse in We are using the group system and sometimes when we load in there is no corpse, other times, you can see it on the map and when you get there it disappears or disappears in the middle of looting yourself. Is there a time limit on how long you can take to get back to your corpse? If so, how do I adjust?
