Isn't Nogova 2 for OFP? If it is, you can do it with object command like this:
CODE
(object [object ID]) animate ["animation", number]

The animation name should be in the readme, IIRC the gates on mapfact Nogova were part of their barracks pack, so check the readme for that.

Otherwise, if you're working with ArmA, you need to do it with the nearestobject command, which is a PITA, since you have to use triggers and such. Basically stick a trigger by the gate and use this:
CODE
(nearestobject getpos this) animate ["animation", number]

In the on activation field. This also works for OFP if you're having trouble getting the object command working (It says on BIKI that it works in OFP, but I seem to recall it didn't work too well)

(you might be able to use nearestobject with a gamelogic instead of a trigger. I don't think nearestobject can call the object it's using as a reference, but this might not be the case. Also, you can apparently use the nearestobject command in the same way as the object command, but I don't know what version this was introduced.)

Yes it's for OFP / Arma CWA.

I tested but nothin works.

With : (object [167362]) animate ["animation",0] = Error message when entering -> object: Type Array, expected Number

With : (nearestobject getpos this) animate ["animation", 1 or 0 tested] = no action

Or am i stupid how to use?

pleas help me

Dove? That's... a new one ohnoo.gif Obviously "animation" isn't actually the name of the animation - like I said, you'll need to look it up addon's documentation.

As for the array expected number, you've put square brackets around the object ID. Admittedly, I did accidentally tell you to that (sorry), just get rid of them and the command should work.
