Problem with Obj Icons

09-21-2003, 06:16 AM
Hi, im doing a jadg type map (objectives for both sides) and i cant seem to get all the obj icons to show up on the hud, either i can gat the allies obj to show up, or the axis one, but not both.

there are 3 objectives for the allies, (3 dod_control_point, 3 dod_point_relay) and 1 dod_control_point_master

there is 1 axis obj, but whenever i add in the dod_control_point, relay or master, it overides the allied icons, takes them away, and only displays the axis one, pls help me.

make sure all the flags and their master are in the same group. This seems like a strange 1.

I'm possitive it's two flag group names your trying to use, I've messed around with this and had a similar problem. Sounds like you might be trying to use two dod_control_point_masters ... yea?

I've always stick with one set of flags and a single control_point_master for them all.

Keep both Allied and Axis flag group the same one. Either that or do what everyone else does and don't use a flag group :D

I guess you are using the dod_point_relay to target a Flag from something like a dod_capture_area.

Let us know if you find anything.

There is 1 axis obj.Okay.

1. use 2 dod_score_ent, and no dod_control_point_master (and no Group Name for the control_points of course)
Name: allies_win
for team: allies

Name: axis_win
for team: axis

2. For the axis, it will be simple:
"Target when axis capture": axis_win
I guess you will trigger this flag via a dod_point_relay.

3. For the allies, each objective will trigger the control_point in order to show the right flag on HUD; and will trigger a game_counter:

dod_point_relay: you know how to use them ;)

"Target when axis capture": obj_counter

Name: obj_counter
Target: allies_win
Limit Value: 3

It works. I want you to try this instead of giving you the map all-done. Create a small test map with ONLY the objectives.

Still not too sure about leaving out the dod_control_point_master but if it works who cares :D

Yea Mythic_Kruger as I remember I wasn't much help to you :o
