Hi people,

 

I need a little help here;

Some good person can tell me what script would help me insert an image centered on an intro outro

Example:

Screenshot_2018-08-24-16-03-14_zpsmieb76

 

before starting the mission.

Hello there redburn !

 

I will add an example of my mission:

 

 

add in your Description.ext

class RscTitles
{
	#include "intro\intro_rscTitles.hpp"
};

 

add in your initPlayerLocal.sqf

[] execVM "intro\intro.sqf";

 

intro.sqf

Hi @GEORGE FLOROS GR,

 

I do not know if I'm wrong but, should the file be sqf format? or hpp? and in the script at the end there is an error for a quote here,

 

x = 0 * safezoneW + safezoneX"; 	// this is the error

 

I am testing the code and I know Hebrew, thank you very much for helping me.

I was doing the script test, but I want what I'm looking for is that it starts in black, it's for a competition where I show the logo first when the screen is dark like this example:

You can do it in SQF using ctrlCreate command.

https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ctrlCreate

 

The only drawback is that I'm still a Script apprentice and I still have a way to go and I do not understand much how the example that BIS uses to start from something concrete would be.

Hi redburn,

 

I've put together a simple intro example for you to try in the MP editor. I'm pretty sure its what your looking for to get you started on your own.

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/lpfo3vf4a8da961/Intro_Demo.Stratis.7z?dl=0

 

Just follow what I've done and edit it to suit your needs.

 

You can also use the same sort of code in an outro.sqf script and call the script from a trigger at the end of your mission.

 

Note: The intro example logo's are 256x256 and 512x512 in dimension, let me know if you have any trouble with other sized logo's.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Cheers.

@GEORGE FLOROS GR Can you give me permission to take a part of your Script? the part that shows the name of the map and that in colors, that would have the finished intro, I will thank you very much, thank you also for your help brother.

So, do the pictures have to be .paa format? 

 

Let me clarify, I'm not using logos, I want to have pictures, then text fade in, and out of the intro. Similar to the intros for the Tac Ops missions. 

 

Also, is there documentation on how to set up the safe zones?

Hi stburr91,

 

I always use .paa format but arma 3 does accept some other formats to.

 

SafeZones shouldn't be a problem because the image is being placed in the middle of the screen.

 

But if you have images greater then 512x512 in dimension then you may have to change the width and height of the RscTitles.

 

Here are some example sizes.

//dimension of bitmaps to be mapped 1:1 in 720p
#define w16                           0.0196078

	        style = 0x30;
	        x = SafeZoneX + SafeZoneW/2 - w512/2;
	        y = SafeZoneY + SafeZoneH/2 - h512/2;
	        w = w512; 
                h = h512;
	        font = "PuristaMedium";
	        sizeEx = 0;

You can use also .jpg format but .paa is generally prefered for some reasons.

Mostly PAA is used because of the size of JPG files. However, PAA compression reduces qualtiy a bit I believe.

Will generate faster and if i remember correcly from another conversation , it will lust for the whole period when it is applied to something in opposite with .jpg

Yes, also correct. I think JPG doesn't render until you get certain distance as well. It shows as black when viewed from distance.
