[Release] Auto Run Script

Recommended Posts

So I noticed that I haven't seen many missions use any sort of auto-run feature, so I decided to write my own script for it which I thought some people might want to use. I've put it into a KeyDown event handler to demonstrate how it could be implemented, but feel free to use it however you like.

(findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown", {
	params ["_control", "_dikCode", "_shift", "_ctrl", "_alt"];

	private _handled = false;

	switch (_dikCode) do {
		// Key 0
		case 11: {
			if (isNil "AR_active") then {AR_active = false;};
			if (AR_active) exitWith {AR_active = false; _handled = true;};

			if (!isNull objectParent player) exitWith {};
			if (surfaceIsWater (getPos player)) exitWith {};

			AR_active = true;
			AR_weapon = currentWeapon player;
			AR_animation = switch (true) do {
				case (AR_weapon isEqualTo ""): {"AmovPercMevaSnonWnonDf"};
				case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (primaryWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWrflDf"};
				case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (secondaryWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWrflDf"};
				case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (handgunWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWpstDf"};
			};

			player playMoveNow AR_animation;

			player addEventHandler ["AnimChanged", {
				if ((!AR_active) || {!((currentWeapon player) isEqualTo AR_weapon)} || {!isNull objectParent player} || {surfaceIsWater (getPos player)}) exitWith {
					player removeEventHandler ["AnimChanged", _thisEventHandler];

					AR_weapon = currentWeapon player;
					AR_animation = switch (true) do {
						case (AR_weapon isEqualTo ""): {"AmovPercMstpSnonWnonDnon"};
						case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (primaryWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMstpSlowWrflDnon"};
						case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (secondaryWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWlnrDf"};
						case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (handgunWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMstpSlowWpstDnon"};
					};

					player playMoveNow AR_animation;

					AR_active = false;
					AR_weapon = nil;
					AR_animation = nil;
				};

				player playMoveNow AR_animation;
			}];

			_handled = true;
		};
	};

	_handled
}];

There is only one caveat to this script that I've noticed, which is that when running up hills it doesn't slow you down like it would if you were to run up one normally.

 

Updated (21/06/2017):

- Auto run now automatically disables when the player runs into water or gets into a vehicle

- Auto run can no longer be started if in water or a vehicle

- Changed an occurrence of playMove to playMoveNow

If you can run up hills without penalty it needs to be renamed IRONMAN or HERCULES script :)

player addEventHandler ["KeyDown",...

what's that? is this pseudo code? or did i miss something?

 

interesting approach though. although i'd personally think about designign the mission in a way that something liek auto run is not needed. but i understand the need for it for dayZ like modes.

You shouldn't be seeing it like that? For me it's like this:

player addEventHandler ["KeyDown", {

what i'm saying is that you need this

 

(findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["Keydown",...

maybe i just missed a few too many changelogs but what you did there i have never seen before. meaning: an eventhandler applied to an object that is of the type "keyDown". by my knowledge that type does only exist for display eventhandlers. i'm assuming you just confused yourself since your params look spot on for a display eventhandler.

 

basically difference between https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3:_Event_Handlers

and https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/User_Interface_Event_Handlers

Oh wow I'm a goose completely didn't notice. I had this code implemented differently in my mission so I extracted it out and wasn't thinking when I put it in this thread. I've corrected it. Thanks for pointing that out.

It's always a good idea to test a snippet before posting it on the forums. This holds true especially when extracting it out of your own framework.

Just a quick paste into the debug console does suffice.

For beginners scripting can be confusing enough without non working examples floating around in the forums.

:yay:

 

Cheers

Yeah I definitely will for future. This is my first script release so haven't done it many times before. Cheers for the advice though.

Great job! Works fine so far. 

 

Im trying to make it beeing disabled when entering a vehicle, running up hills or entering water but no success yet. Maybe anyone else can help out :)

I updated the code to prevent auto run in water or in a vehicle and to automatically disable it if the player does so. Just gotta work on the running up hills part now.

to check slope you can frequently check the player's positions height and the height of a position infront of him/her.

I have been toying around with this but cannot seem to get it to work. Where do I place the dik code for the key I want to use? I'm assuming this script is just going into an sqf and being executed on init.sqf?

@Donnie_Plays If your still using Ravage these days, why not use it's autowalk/run feature...

I actually figured out a solution already. I thought Ravage had an autowalk feature. There is an autorun with it?

Hi everybody,
it's an old version but still very useful,

I give you my own version of this script

- different animation added
- stop when blocked
- stop on any key

I use a different addEventHandler (at the end of the animation) that makes the code smaller and the animation more fluid

I add another EH binded on any key to stop running.

I hope it's help,

anyway thank you very much for your post!

 

the example below uses the custom user action key # 2

 

// Alway run
// from https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/205916-release-auto-run-script/
// revisited by pSiKO
(findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown", {
    if (_this select 1 == (actionKeys 'User2') select 0) then {
		if (isNil "AR_active") then {AR_active = false};
 		if (AR_active) exitWith {AR_active = false};
		if (!isNull objectParent player) exitWith {};
		if (surfaceIsWater (getPos player)) exitWith {};

		AR_active = true;
		AR_weapon = currentWeapon player;
		AR_animation = switch (true) do {
			case (AR_weapon isEqualTo ""): {"AmovPercMevaSnonWnonDf"};
			case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (handgunWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWpstDf"};
			case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (primaryWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWrflDf"};
			case (AR_weapon isEqualTo (secondaryWeapon player)): {"AmovPercMevaSlowWlnrDf"};
		};
		player addEventHandler ["AnimDone", {
			if ((!AR_active) || {!((currentWeapon player) isEqualTo AR_weapon)} ||
			{!isNull objectParent player} || {surfaceIsWater (getPos player)} ||
			{_this select 1 == AR_animation && speed (vehicle player) <= 0}) exitWith {
				player removeEventHandler ["AnimDone", _thisEventHandler];
				AR_active = false;
				AR_weapon = nil;
				AR_animation = nil;
			};
			player playMoveNow AR_animation;
		}];
		player playMoveNow AR_animation;
	};
}];

// Stop running
(findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown", {
	if (_this select 1 != (actionKeys 'User2') select 0) then {
		if (AR_active) then {AR_active = false};
	};
}];
