[Ombra] Simple HALO with map click Script/function

Recommended Posts

Hello,

this is a simple script to halo jump a player.

 

Does it work in Multiplayer?

Yes, MultiPlayer and SinglePlayer.

 

What does this script do?

This script allows a player to HALO on a given point on a map. 

 

How do I use this script?

Place the script in 

Select an object on the editor and place the following line into its init to allow HALO from the action menu:

(remove <t color='#37A9E7'></t> to show it as plain white like any other action)

//If script is in scenario root directory
this addAction["<t color='#37A9E7'>H.A.L.O. Jump</t>","[player] execVM 'halo.sqf';"];

//If script is in other scenario directory
this addAction["<t color='#37A9E7'>H.A.L.O. Jump</t>","[player] execVM 'yourFolder\halo.sqf';"];

 

halo.sqf

//Uncomment following line if used as function
//_unit = param[0];
//Uncomment following line if used as script
_unit = _this select 0;

_haloAltitude = 1000;
//Opening map and handling click
openMap true;
mapclick = false;
onMapSingleClick "clickpos = _pos; mapclick = true; onMapSingleClick """";true;";
waituntil {mapclick};

_haloLocation = clickpos;
_unitLoadout = getUnitLoadout _unit;
cutText ["H.A.L.O. in progress...", "BLACK OUT", 1];
sleep 1;
openMap false;
_unit setPos _haloLocation;
_unit addBackpack "B_Parachute";
//Halo
[_unit, _haloAltitude] call bis_fnc_halo;
sleep 2;
cutText ["", "BLACK IN", 1];
waitUntil {(getpos _unit select 2) < 2};
//Giving loadout back
sleep 1;
_unit setUnitLoadout _unitLoadout;

I can't seem to get this script to work.  I have been out of the game for a while so a lil rusty.

 

I get "Error Invalid number in expression" when executed from a whiteboard.

 

/ /Uncomment following line if used as>
 7:46:15   Error position: </ /Uncomment following line if used as>
 7:46:15   Error Invalid number in expression
 7:46:15 File C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\TPM\mpmissions\test.Altis\scripts\halo.sqf..., line 1

 

Script looks like:

Spoiler

/ /Uncomment following line if used as function
//_unit = para m[0];
//Uncomment following line if used as script
_unit = _this select 0;

_haloAltitude = 1000;
//Opening map and handling click
openMap true;
mapclick = false;
onMapSingleClick "clickpos = _pos; mapclick = true; onMapSingleClick """";true;";
waituntil {mapclick};

_haloLocation = clickpos;
_unitLoadout = getUnitLoadout _unit;
cutText ["H.A.L.O. in progress...", "BLACK OUT", 1];
sleep 1;
openMap false;
_unit setPos _haloLocation;
_unit addBackpack "B_Parachute";
//Halo
[_unit, _haloAltitude] call bis_fnc_halo;
sleep 2;
cutText ["", "BLACK IN", 1];
waitUntil {(getpos _unit select 2) < 2};
//Giving loadout back
sleep 1;
_unit setUnitLoadout _unitLoadout;

 

Whiteboard Init:

this addAction["<t color='#37A9E7'>H.A.L.O. Jump</t>","[player] execVM 'scripts\halo.sqf';"];

No I don't think so.  That execution method enables the you to select HALO jump from the whiteboard.
