Note that the function you provide as argument is *not* transferred to the remote client or server. You will have to use functions either a) defined in global namespace b) define functions both on server and client code if you separate it using conditions on isServer or local player c) pre-defined BIS functions You can also execute scripts remotely like this: ["myScript.sqf","BIS_fnc_execVM",true,true] spawn BIS_fnc_MP; Or transfer code as parameter (not recommended) like that: ["{hint "Hello World!";}","BIS_fnc_spawn",true,true] spawn BIS_fnc_MP;
