Debug Console for ARMA 2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I improved my unofficial debug console from ArmA1 and ported it to ARMA 2.

Since I'm not planning to continue working on it, feel free to improve it as you wish.

DOWNLOAD

This is not an official tool.

Version 1.02 (2011/6/16) changes:

Fixed: Variable check was running in uiNameSpace instead of missionNameSpace.

Version 1.01 (2010/12/08) changes:

Added: Console can now be accessed from multiplayer and 3D editor.
Added: Input field content is now saved even between missions and stays there until game is shut down.
Added: Ctrl+1 to Ctrl+6 shortcuts for executing command lines.

Fixed: Variable check now runs even with 0 acctime.
Fixed: Last expression field content was not saved.
Fixed: Interface is no longer replacing default game values.

Well, you could use the debug console in SP mode, right? In that case commands such as "player setDamage 0" or "player setCaptive true" or "player allowDamage false" could be handy.

I especially like the new "allowDamage" feature which caters for perfect mission testing because the enemy will still shoot and sometimes hit you but you can't be hurt. Allows pretty good assessment of difficulty levels beforehand.

Cheers,

Mainly for debugging mission editing! This tool is handy for checking objecives now tasks to see if their working or not!

"DOES NOT WORK IN MP" so dont even try it!

Sure thing. You can use the "addmagazine" command. This would be "player addmagazine <magazinename>". Magazine names could be something like "30Rnd_545x39_AK" for the AK.

For a full list consult the magazine names per weapon in the class name posting http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=73241. Refer to the weapons section.

Thats just a matter of syntax (mind the quotes). Here's what you can copy and paste:

player addmagazine "100Rnd_762x51_M240"

Thanks a lot, big fan of STRA_DEBUG 1 :D

Your addon seems to cause base classes to update: http://gist.github.com/124296

Not sure if they are required for your addon's operation, but otherwise would be nice to resolve, thanks!

@fidai: I don't know what you mean by support codes. Anyway, this is the addon release board (specifically the debug console thread). If you don't mind take this question to the "Arma 2 Editing" board, ok?

@fidai, please, -> move these questions to the "MISSION EDITING & SCRIPTING" board of Arma 2. Besides: player allowDamage false; for example :) but that's it now.

Hi all

pekka_warrior there is only one player in SP; YOU!

You need to know the ID of non player characters to affect each of them.

then syntax becomes.

(unit name) allowDamage false

As you intention seems to be to give your self some form of "Old Duffers" mode in the campaign you will need to find the IDs of each other unit in your group. I personally would never do that. I know the game is hard; it is meant to be you will get far more fun out of the campaign by persisting and completing it.

So first find the units in a group you could use the Units command

http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/units

You then use allowDammage false on each of them.

Kind Regards walker
