=TSS= SLOVETIR - Scopes Love TrackIR

Version

0.3

Motivation

With the new 3D-Scopes in Arma3 TrackIR-users can look around with a magnified view. This addon is supposed to tackle this problem by unzooming the player when looks around. It also enables the TrackIR-user to watch around in the 2D-Scopes. Furthermore it disables the possibility to use nightvision with zoomed scopes. I know that some might disagree on this topic but it doesn't work with most scopes.

So far the addon was only tested by a couple of people, so please give a feedback if you find any kind of bug or like to see some other features.

I will add some images and video soon.

So far it doesn't work if you play on a difficulty level different from elite, because using the 3rd-person mode messes up the addon and your game experience.

Features

Implemented Features

  • Disable abbility to look around zoomed in magnified 3D-Scopes
  • Look around unzoomed in 2D-Scopes
  • No nightvision in zoomed 3D-Scopes

Planed Features

  • So far non

I'm disappointed that I haven't noticed this mod earlier. Thanks for the release, very useful for infantry manoeuvres.

Hey brainslush,

unfortunately =TSS= SLOVETIR doesn't work for me at all. Also the menu button is being displayed in the menu but has no function either.

Works fine here, make sure you are in ELITE difficulty. Are you using any other mods? Have you checked your .rpt files? Are you using showScriptErrors?

Made sure it's elite difficulty. Every mod turned off/not loaded except cba and TSS, basic test environment understanding. Show ScriptErrors enabled now and RPT logs shows this:

[2577,63.366,0,"XEH: PreInit Started. v1.0.8.140725. MISSINIT: missionName=Arsenal, worldName=VR, isMultiplayer=false, isServer=true, isDedicated=false"]

I checked the PBO myself and all the missing files are definitely within the PBO.

New full log after I put the "cba_cache_disable.pbo" and "cba_cache_disable.pbo.cba_a3_rc3_hotfix.bisign" within the cba addons folder;

edit 3;

Went from tss_slovetir_05.zip back to tss_slovetir_03.zip.

03 just worked fine after re-initialize via ingame menu.

Went back to 05 and it stopped working again.

So either something is wrong with the 05 version or something else is fishy.

Harzach, thanks for replying and trying to help, much appreciated :)

Cheers

Aha! The config in v0.5 has file path errors on lines 26, 34, and 46. A simple fix. I figured I was using the latest version, but Six is pushing v0.3.

*edit* - I can't be bothered to create yet another account right now, so consider this the bug report.

Oh sorry, I never pushed the correct version up to the server since I never imagined that people are using that mod. Actually not the path is wrong but I packed it with the BIS-Addonmaker which is unable to read the $PBOPREFIX$ files properly.

I will be redoing this mod in the next few days, since I came up with an idea to make it more effective and reliable

The reson that it doesn't work in any other gamemode than elite was because I didn't see any point in fixing that when third person is enabled.

Nice to see you are working on an update :)

If you don't mind me making a suggestion;

It would be nice to have an ability that disables TrackIR for the time being when looking through zoomed in scopes, for instance the red dot sight of the RCO and also zoomed in scope.

But TrackIR should be enabled again immediately when being out of weapon scopes.

Would be a nice feature if that could be implemented :)

I'm not completely sure what you're suggesting but do you mean that the TrackIR (or any other headtracking) movement should be disabled when looking through any scope? I guess this won't be possible since you can't alter the inputs of the client, at least not for controllers and TrackIR. I guess there even is a ticket suggesting to enable the feature to alter the client inputs.

[...]movement should be disabled when looking through any scope?

That's exactly what I meant :)

Well I wrote in the TrackIR forums now and we will see if they can come up with a solution together with BI, would be awesome :)
