spawn cannot call other local functions on the same scope as itself.
It can, however, call other global functions: _addOne = {TST=TST+1}; TST_addOne = {TST=TST+1}; _add = { TST=TST+1; player sidechat format["added: %1",TST]; [] call _addOne; player sidechat format["called local: %1",TST]; [] call TST_addOne; player sidechat format["called global: %1",TST]; }; TST=0; [] call _add; [] spawn _add; (The call of _addOne from the spawned function does not do anything.)
