Mission Script Error

Recommended Posts



Can someone please help me. I am about to pull my hair out. I keep getting a Mission script error - [string "C:\User\MyName\AppData\Local\Temp\DCSV~mis000******"]:1 unexpected symbol near 'i'


So just to give a quick example of what I did. This is a very simple example and wanted to break it down just for show.


I used the CTTS script for transport. I changed the pickzone1 color to blue and made 2 dropzones (dropzone1 and dropzone2). Making dropzone1 red and dropzone2 none.


Added the script in Triggers - Initialization Script. Created a huey client with pilot name helicargo1.


Here is the mission and the CTTS file I edited

Check your DCS.log from username/savedgames/DCS/Logs. Whenever you get a script error it should provide a more detailed location of the error in your code, allowing you to pinpoint the specific line causing the problem.

The right man in the wrong place makes all the difference in the world.

I have been getting the same message what I did was just load the training/tutorial and deleted the triggers and everything except the Huey and extraction group and moved them around and duplicated or what have you and that seems to work for me. I noticed it happens when you try to create a mission from scratch and you load the CTTS.lua in the Initialization file. I do NOT know how to fix it. but that is the walk around I used
