Note that the function you provide as argument is *not* transferred to the remote client or server. You will have to use either
  1. functions defined in global namespace
  2. functions defined depending on where you want to execute them; in server or/and client code if you separate it using conditions on isServer or local player
  3. 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;
