Adding picture in briefing

Recommended Posts

I am aware that you could use a script in the briefing.sqf in ARMA II. In arma 3, however, you can use the modules for briefing.

My question is how do I add a briefing picture in arma 3?

So far I know you can add this

<img image='somePic.jpg' width='200' height='200'/>

into together with your text to the module.

However, I would suggest you to use a briefing sqf. Makes alignment of the pictures and overall editing easier.

Thank you! :cool:

That was easy. It took me some time to find the right size though! These modules are amazing.

I love these modules too and it's pretty much what got me into the mission editing.

Yeah. I have been editing missions since early 2010 and I have to say that these modules really makes thing a lot more smooth.

Are we talking about the sort of "diary" entries?

I believe this are persistent past the briefing?

Or would it in this case, just appear for the briefing and then disappear on the in game part?

class CfgDebriefing
{  

	class End3
	{
		title = "Mission Failed";
		subtitle = "";
		description = "Your team has been killed";
		pictureBackground = "";
		picture = "b_inf";
		pictureColor[] = {0.0,0.3,0.6,1};
	};
};

This is in the description.ext file and in particular you want to have an image defined in the picturebackground section.

 

So for example:

picturebackground = "armaisawesome.paa";

Hello, guys. How can I add a picture in the diary record? I know I must put a script in init.sqf, but it won't work for me. I receive some errors on the screen. I think I can't add the script directly to the diary module init field... Thanks in advance and cheers! 🙂

Yes, some error in the .sqf file. It won't load the Briefing at all. When I try to open it in game, it doesn't show up. Would you send me a ready file with an example? And tell me if I need to put it in the init.sqf file or try it in a different way? Because I've already tried within the init.sqf file. Cheers.

Have you DL the init file that is with the video from his dropbox. It tells you what to put inside the init file. Instead of calling it player local init.sqf just call it init.sqf..

Yes, I tried this, too. I put only the createDiaryRecord script there, but nothing happens. There was only one code working, but but the pictures didn't show up. I received this error message when I opened the diary in game. Only the text was there, but not mine. It was the text from the example I used. When I use the example itself, it would work correctly. I will paste the code in a while.

 

player createDiaryRecord ["Diary",     ["Surveillance Pictures",     "Picture No.1<br/><br/>     Time: 6.41 UTC<br/><br/>     Date: 13.11.2009<br/><br/>     Location: Altis<br/><br/>     <img image='images\nikos_1.paa' width='367' height='256'/><br/><br/>     Picture No.2<br/><br/>     Time: 6.44 UTC<br/><br/>     Date: 13.11.2009<br/><br/>     Location: Altis<br/><br/>     <img image='images\nikos_2.paa' width='367' height='256'/><br/>"] ];

 

 This is where I found the script. The correct lines and structure can be found there.
