Thanks mate!

This came in very handy for some video recording i had to do.

its a great set of scripts!

Here's my current list of favorite tools, which i use for video recording:

Gcam

Director

multitool

RTE

Lost key

Mando missile

proving ground

With some modifications ( i made addon out of some scripts ) i use these to record live battles and other video snippets.

Proving ground has been very usefull for some airplaine bombrun shots.

i got loads of usable material in minimal time, thanks to the reload/respawn of the targets.

Hi conKORD, thanks for this great training mission. Is it possible to add a couple more rifles to the next version of the mission? In particular, I'm looking for the L85s with the SUSAT sights. Here are the versions in question:

L85A2 SUSAT BAF_L85A2_RIS_SUSAT

L85A2 SUSAT GL BAF_L85A2_UGL_SUSAT

I would try to add them myself but wouldn't have a clue where to start!

Thanks again.

Hi. Weapon creator parses CfgWeapons and automatically adds to list every existing weapon. L85A2 SUSAT and L85A2 SUSAT GL is in "scoped rifles" section.

Thanks conKORD.

ANy Chance you can get armaholic to host the new update?

I would prefer not to use Sendspace as it forces one to have to install the iLivid download manager. I'm worried that its spyware/malware....
