sqm(2D Editor) to biedi(3D Editor) converter

Recommended Posts

I made an sqm to biedi converter. The code is available here: https://github.com/mmavipc/SQM2BIEdi If someone would like to, it could easily be ported to an operating system different from windows, because it uses nothing windows specific(except for the #pragma once header guards, I was lazy).

Pre-built binary: https://mega.co.nz/#!mMUlEDbZ!XGOa8gZF1GQ5C4AMhHCRWQoytq0JK4G5EGs9KOZ90AQ

Virus scan of binary: https://www.virustotal.com/file/27aa6879c739ba584ab67c3a8c6c087bfa55a3e499727c479ebd182df68bd2e1/analysis/1355596836/

How to use:

  1. Put SQM2BIEdi.exe and your mission.sqf in the same directiory
  2. Run SQM2BIEdi.exe
  3. A mission.biedi has been generated
  4. Put it in Documents/Arma 2 Profiles/profilename/missions/mission_name.world_name
  5. Load it up in the 3D editor

There are still some things that it is missing, the ones I know of are listed here: https://github.com/mmavipc/SQM2BIEdi/issues?state=open

If you find something that isn't listed there, make a new issue if you already have a GitHub account, or post in this thread if you don't.

Hello this will be a very useful tool for converting your previously built 2d editor mission into the 3d editor.

I have a problem with the download link i get

Reported Attack Page!

Could you possibly use another download location such as mediafire or dropbox?

Do not use that, it screws the z axis (height). Instead save the Mission SQM in your saved mission made in 3D editor as something.sqf (forexample fortress.sqf) Then open it in Notepad ++ or similar, delete everithing on the top, until the placed objects (objects code is starting with

_vehicle_number= objNull;

Replace the deleted part with

if (isServer) then
and also delete the last 3 lines of the code and replace with
Then make a mission in norma arma 2D editor, save it, make init.sqf in the folder of that mission, and it the init.sqf type
[]execVM "something.sqf";
Run the mission and enjoy.

Note: in some tutorials they suggest deleting alos all playable units from your something.sqf, but i often forget to do it, and it still works ok so it probably isnt that important, but just to be sure do it!

There is a youtube tutorial for it somewhere, but iam at work, and we have blocked all sites as youtube facebook twitter and things like that here so i kant give you the link right now.

Oh and if you allready have init.sqf and some code in it, put the []execVM thing to the bottom.
