Unit changed PlayerEH not called when leaving Zeus RemoteControl #615

Arma 3 Version: 1.66 (stable / rc / dev)
CBA Version: 3.2.1 (stable / dev + commit hash)


- CBA_A3

When leaving a Zeus Remote Control by Pressing the Z button the currentUnit changed Event is not executed. It only runs after the Zeus Interface was completly closed by Pressing Z again and going back into the Zeus Players eyeCamera

This is probably because the Arma PlayerViewChanged EH doesn't trigger when Zeus leaves Remote Control and goes back into Zeus Interface Camera

Reference: michail-nikolaev/task-force-arma-3-radio#1211

Steps to reproduce:

  • Use this:
["unit", {
    systemChat str ["playerChanged",_this];
},true] call CBA_fnc_addPlayerEventHandler;
  • Go Into Zeus Interface and Remote Control a unit
  • Press Z to go back into Zeus Interface
  • Press Z again to close Zeus Interface
  • You'll see that the Eventhandler is only called after you exit the Zeus Interface. Although after you quit remote Control and went back into Zeus Interface CBA_fnc_currentUnit report's player already.

Where did the issue occur?

  • Dedicated / Self-Hosted Multiplayer

This could also be a Arma bug because technically the PlayerView changed.. But I'd rather not wait months for BI to fix it

Doesn't even fire consistently when using selectPlayer. It was a nice idea, but the CBA eventhandlers were specifically made to have a reliable solution. Sometimes things fail and one has to accept that.
