This is only for players and not AI? 

I don't understand why boheima never put in the ability for the AI to put weapons on there backs or carry weapons across chest like the animation coming down a the ladder.

 

It would be really nice to have patrols walking around with weapons on back or across chest.

 

Bohemia should hire some of you guys to help put basic functionality in the game. Thank you for what you guys do. Avibird

Thank you avibird 1 !

 

This script is only for players.

 

It would be nice to have theese features that you are saying , as for the AI , i think there are already some codes for this.

I will check and i'll tell you.!

There is something similar in Ace that my unit uses, but that doesn't prohibit the throwing of grenades. Does your script prevents grenades being thrown?

Hello there Hastyace !

 

While you have your weapons holstered , you can also throw grenades .

 

Tell me something , just for the question , if i remember , in the ace you have to hit the key 9 to holster , right?

Generally , is it possible to change the key binding there ?

Ah, too bad, ACE3 will also let you throw a grenade with holstered weapons.

Nope, its 0 (zero) but I believe that binding can be changed. I never did BTW.

 

The idea is have visual conformation that a certain soldier with holstered weapons will not be able to misfire of throw a grenade. That has happened many times while I stood on parade with my digital comrades.

This part is for laughs :f: ,  because ,

 

Hastyace , this is what i said also .

 

You can also throw everything , with your weapons holstered.

To understand better , you mean that you want a display in your screen , when you holster - unholster  ,

because i have also this feature available in my script . 

 

There is no misfire , << bug >> trowing the grenade with your weapon holster.

 

Generally , if you want ,  i would like you to write down , your opinions and ideas , to make possible change ,

that would get this script better.

 

Thanks Hastyace !

Erm, I was describing the way ACE3 handles the visual conformation, because when zero is pressed, the soldier will holster its weapon (carry it on his back). The conformation lies in the fact that everyone can see this particular soldier in no way can use his guns. But ACE3 lets the soldier still use grenades and that is something I would like to see being addressed.

 

So, my idea is that Arma would be a lot safer when a soldier holsters his weapon, he is not able to throw a grenade. The animation that goes with it (the visual conformation) can be the one ACE3 uses (carry the gun on back) or something else. I don't mean a conformation on the players screen.

Ok now i understand what  you were saying about ace , ( I haven't play much with this addon ) .

But still why not to be able to throw  something ?

In real actual life holstering your weapon , leaves your hand free to do anything , so why not to be able?

From my view , i would like to see a real simulation of grabing a grenade , pulling out the pin , keep the arming switch pressed and finally throw , with a certain strengh , on a certain distance and all this in a time equal to reallity.

 

Thanks again  Hastyace !

@Hastyace - Isn't that standard A3 behaviour as well? Here is a quick solution (work-around) - if I have understood correctly.

player setVariable ["weaponHolstered", true];
player addMagazine "HandGrenade";
[] spawn
{
	throwKeyEH = (findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown",
	{
		if (param [1] == (actionKeys "Throw" select 0) && player getVariable "weaponHolstered") then // change getVariable to whatever condition you need
		{
			hintSilent "Throw is blocked when your weapon is holstered.";
			true
		} else
		{
			false
		};
	}];
};

NOTE: Keep in mind that this will only block the first set key. You can tweak to loop through all though, pretty easy.

@GEORGE FLOROS GR - Maybe because the grenade is thrown in some kind of set position if nothing is in hand. Just guessing but this is one annoying thing imo.

Maybe I haven't been clear enough. Picture the situation where a group of soldiers is standing on parade. How bad would it be if one of the soldiers - by accident! - is throwing a grenade (it doesn't matter if the grenade is lethal or non-lethal, it is de interruption that breaks), killing all his comrades?

It is not my intention to stop the throwing of grenades, only in this particular situation.

To look and see that no one is able to throw grenades in that situation, it would be handy to have some sort of visual conformation, while looking at this group of soldiers. One conformation could be the carrying of the weapon on the back. Alas, Ace caters for this but Ace also allows the throwing of grenades, even if the soldiers are not able to shoot. Their weapons are on their back, after al.

 

@HazJ I will pass your code to our missions makers to see if that can be implemented on our missions. Thanks for your work!

Return false in the KeyDown EH.

... displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown",
{
	// code
	// code
	// code
	false // This will stop default behaviour
}];

    _Holster_Weapon_ctrl = (_this select 0) displayCtrl 9001;
    if(isNull(_Holster_Weapon_ctrl)) then {
    _Holster_Weapon_ctrl = (_this select 0) ctrlCreate ["RscText", 9001];
    _Holster_Weapon_ctrl ctrlShow false;

any way to turn off the default keybind (Open Menu (Status)) from key 5?

 

Hello there brunohxcx !

 

Just in order to understand better,

 

do you want just to change the key bind interaction for holstering ?

or you want to disable the game default menu?

 

( when pressing key 5 )

Do you mean the command menu?

 

You could disable the key interaction ,

 

but have you checked here first?
