This is a really nice touch. Also acts as a visual indicator you’re talking on the radio.

 

Looking forward to playing with this.

This is a super cool concept for a mod! How does it work when you've got your weapon up? How does it work while firing?

While having your weapon up, the animation is still played, only the left hand is animated. You can still fire, but you can't aim. 

 

You can disable the animation in the menu, if you want to aim while transmitting over the radio.

Awesome! This looks and sounds really interesting - Great little immersive addition, good job!

Would you ever consider making a version of this for the ACRE mod?

Is it a local animation or can everyone see the animation?

Will this still work with the 1.0 beta version of TFAR?

I don't know if the EventHandler that I use is already in that Version, you can try :) But I'd guess yes.

I did not execute the animations on every machine, but as far as my testing went, Gestures are always executed globally, so it should work but it's not tested on servers

Looks great! Going to give this a try. 

 

OT:

We seem the have the same ideas. I already had pretty much exact this minus the UI already as WIP.

I know this probably does not help, but for some reason with this mod loaded, our server hangs on the loading screen for people.

 

I tried checking server rpt. logs and found nothing that stands out.

 

Mods include RHS, CUP, CBA, ACRE.

 

Edit: I noticed even if the server does not have it loaded, if people individually have it loaded then it too causing the load screen to freeze.

Thanks for this information. 

I will look into this, I'm pretty sure that my code cannot cause this issues, but I'll make sure! 

I did not have a single issue with the mod so far and the tfar mod seems to work fine for more than 1000 people.

 

So I know where to look, as the basic code works just fine and it's probably just the Acre specific stuff. If only some people have this loaded, does this cause their loading screen to crash or for everyone? 

 

Also there is no need to load this mod on the server. It's client-side only atm.

Believe the problem with the acre stuck loading screen is the

waitUntil{!isNull (findDisplay 46)};

line in fn_postInit.sqf.

Long suspension during postInit block the game from loading, according to CfgFunctions wiki page.

A diag_log after this line is never reached for me.

@Keithen Yep, that's where the problem seems to be. I'm currently working together with the ACRE Team who are adding an EventHandler, in the next update, that I can use. This is probably the most performance friendly way possible.
I've also been asked by the ACRE Team if they could integrate this into their own mod, this will be done once my Mod is done (new Animations and bug fixes).

I've noticed the animations aren't looped. Not telling you how to do your mod but right now you look epileptic when using radio because your hand keeps switching.
