  3. Thanks @Larrow, that did the trick. I now have this dialog defined: class uns_cb { idd = 2019; movingEnable = true; onLoad = "_this call uns_mbox_fnc_carpetLoad;"; class controls { //////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // GUI EDITOR OUTPUT START (by TeTeT, v1.063, #Dujeja) //////////////////////////////////////////////////////// class uns_cb_frame: RscFrame { idc = 1800; x = 0.2375 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.206013 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.6 * safezoneW; h = 0.6 * safezoneH; colorBackground[] = {0.1,0.1,0.1,0.5}; }; class uns_cb_listBoxPlane: ctrlListbox { idc = 1500; x = 0.28125 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.262011 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.291667 * safezoneW; h = 0.4 * safezoneH; }; // class uns_cb_listBoxBomb: ctrlListbox // { // idc = 1501; // x = 0.602083 * safezoneW + safezoneX; // y = 0.262011 * safezoneH + safezoneY; // w = 0.2 * safezoneW; // h = 0.4 * safezoneH; // }; class uns_cb_buttonOk: CtrlButton { idc = 1600; text = "Ok"; //--- ToDo: Localize; x = 0.733333 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.709991 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0583333 * safezoneW; h = 0.0699969 * safezoneH; action = "systemChat 'setting up carpet bomb module'; [] call uns_mbox_fnc_carpetTool;"; }; class uns_cb_buttonCancel: CtrlButton { idc = 1601; text = "Cancel"; //--- ToDo: Localize; x = 0.295833 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.709991 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0583333 * safezoneW; h = 0.0699969 * safezoneH; action = "(findDisplay 2019) closeDisplay 0; systemChat 'Carpet Bomb setup cancelled';"; }; //////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // GUI EDITOR OUTPUT END //////////////////////////////////////////////////////// }; }; The function to load the listboxes is incomplete, will be driven from config later on, but basically it works: // Written by TeTeT for Unsung params ["_dsp"]; private _lbPlanes = _dsp displayCtrl 1500; { private _idx = _lbPlanes lbAdd (_x # 0); _lbPlanes lbSetData [_idx, _x # 1]; } forEach [ ["A-4 (10 * Mk82 500 lbs)", "uns_A4B_skyhawk_BMB;Uns_Mk82Launcher_dl;10"], ["A-6 (15 * Mk83 1000 lbs)", "uns_A6_Intruder_BMB;Uns_Mk83Launcher_dl;15"], ["A-7 (14 * Mk83 1000 lbs)", "uns_A7N_BMB;Uns_Mk83Launcher_dl;14"], ["F-100 (6 * Napalm 500lbs)", "uns_f100b_CAS;Uns_NapalmLauncher_500_dl;6"] ]; The carpetTool function that sets the variables in the module via init: // Written by TeTeT for Unsung, with help from Larrow // https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/226173-configuring-a-module-in-eden/ private _dsp = findDisplay 2019; private _ctrl = _dsp displayCtrl 1500; private _idx = lbCurSel _ctrl; private _data = _ctrl lbData _idx; // systemChat str _data; private _dataArray = _data splitString ";"; private _e = create3DENEntity ["Logic", "uns_ModuleCarpet", screenToWorld [0.5, 0.5]]; // _e set3DENAttribute ["name", "PreconfiguredCarpetBomb"]; _e set3DENAttribute[ "init", format [" this setVariable[ 'Type', '%1']; this setVariable[ 'Bomb', '%2']; this setVariable[ 'BombAmount', %3]; ", _dataArray # 0, _dataArray # 1, parseNumber(_dataArray # 2)]]; _dsp closeDisplay 0; Thanks again for your help and pushing in the right direction! Cheers, TeTeT
  4. Ladder animations that only touch the ladder. No starting in mid air. Ability to climb obstacles like Enhanced Movement mod. Raise/lower weapon command so can get through doors sideways or closer to walls. AI that cannot see through dense grass. Much better grass drawing distance. Inventory has a "take all" option. Maybe if you click on the quantity and drag it takes all items. Quick drop backpack command. Better, longer lasting, grasscutting to see bodies. ACE Advanced grenade throwing as standard (why can't I drop a grenade out the window) Civilian traffic/AI module that is very light on CPU and has very limited AI actions; just to create crowds. Number one, though, is: use more CPU threads if they're available, and use more of each thread. I often see CPU sitting at <70% on three threads and think, "I wouldn't be desiring faster hardware if ARMA used what I've got more effectively."
  5. Also I do not know how they handle buildings being destroyed, but here I have decided that furniture gets destroyed along with it.
  6. I suppose it is a moral question. However this is Arma, the opposing sides are in conflict and when a BMP full of AI is barrelling toward you, the last thing they would be thinking about is whether they should stop or swerve to avoid their enemy. 😀
  7. I hope you can get some use out of it! I haven't actually seen Phronk's and Haleks' scripts. Very interesting! To compare this script with theirs, it looks like the main difference of this is that you can (and at this point in time, will have to) define compositions of your own. So if your mission requires messy or if you require clean furniture you can choose. Downside is of course how I haven't made many compositions so you'll have to do it yourself. This is why I'm very interesting in crowdsourcing. This script is built around the idea of adding your own compositions, so that is why I also have scripts to export these. Looking at the the ravage script, it seems they work in very similar ways too. This script will select random compositions(If they exist) and thus has to synchronize that, but I don't know if their scripts have to deal with that at all, maybe they just use one per house? It seems their scripts do not spawn the objects on dedicated servers. I would think this would cause AI to ignore it, whereas they would normally act like they can't see through it. I only looked at Phronk's thread, but it seems it works on towns, through triggers. This script is meant to be more seamless, looking for every building you come across. I think those are the points worth noting, but this is not an exhaustive list. On another note, I'm going to make a small video to try and illustrate how to build and use compositions.
  8. Today
  9. will cursorObject not be enough for player vs ai checking? Like: for Ai vs Ai checking how about using the assignedTarget command? It will not be extremely precise but works for Ai vs Ai checking as long as they are enemy. I don't think the command works on friendlies pointing guns at friendlies and also it probably only works when in combat but I don't see a situation where an Ai would point its gun at a friendly unit anyway nor a situation where an enemy would be pointing at an enemy and not in combat unless it is a scripted scene or something. The second function also works for Ai vs Player checking (I think this is what this post is about), as long as you add a condition like: If (isPlayer _aTarget) then {_playerAimedAtInfo = _aTarget; _playerAimedAtInfo}; PS: Even thou not as precise and having its limitations, this method is far more performance friendly than an EachFrame Mission EH.
  10. Yesterday
  11. I use this for simulating a weapon drop, do you think it might cause me troubles using "WeaponHolderSimulated" createVehicle [0,0,0]; instead of createVehicle[ "GroundWeaponHolder_Scripted", position player, [], 0, "CAN_COLLIDE" ]; ?
  12. I can confirm that, it actually CRASHES Arma 3 for me. And a hard crash that requires a full reboot on windows 10. I solved this by having my script: Drop the primaryWeapon to the _wh. Delete the secondaryWeapon. (if present). Put the handgunWeapon inside the backpack/uniform/vest. (If no space left just delete it). (if present).

    Played a few, now questions

    What about ADS vs 3rd person, I was under the impression that if you aim down your sights once, then every time you pull the gun up in that round it will be the same. I find it inconsistent though, sometimes it ADS and sometimes its over the shoulder.
  14. Thank you tinter for sharing this! On the whole of Arma 3 community there are only 2 such scripts, one from @phronk and the other from @haleks. I've personally used @haleks version and it works like a charm and has almost "null" impact on performance being perhaps the only downside that its compositions tend to be on the apocalyptic side of things (like blood and garbage too etc). How would you compare your script to that of @haleks ? PS: You would have to look inside Ravage's PBO's to get to those scripts.
  15. Okay! Tested this again on Sunday and it worked perfect, even with a ton of other mods running. Just to make sure, I waited another day and tested it again and it worked just fine! Even tried it on two different maps! Perfectly fine. Arma being Arma I guess, Sorry for the alarm ☹️
  16. Still my favorite map, keep coming back to it all the time, currently making a campaign for my group, was wondering if anyone can point me to the real world location so i can grab some pictures from google maps for my campaign briefing?

    More about it. -the film sk 1-Two days ago one guy ¡¡¡ who i dont know who is he in solo play. ask me if im german. of course no im not and make me wonder who is he? so i was under a bush cover undetectable no signal detector nothing surronding. So he emerged from nothing a rain of bullets direct to the bush where i cover with EXTREME PRECAUTION. He kill me of course and when i consult his nick make me wonder the guy who ask me 30 seconds ago if im german. 2-Two guys killing everybody in the map. when finish the play they stand together they are friends of course and near the air drop the loot. So they leave and the crate still in the map. they killing me one in front one in back both coordinate for sure. 3.Guys who kill you with shots in the head and you under a bush cover. with two bullets and you in his back only Assist Aim? Assist Aim? one chat and Forums talk about this game reporting this issue. Im top level shelter. poltergeist
  18. Nice @OFrP for the beret insignia 😄 As for the bad news I'm sorry to hear it. I'm guessing the integrators you are looking for aren't just merely config writers ?
  19. Thank you for the help, folks! This will help me tremendously.

    Supply drop

    @Larrow Just DL and looked at the codes in the crate and module. It's appears to be exactly what I have in my setup. But I could be wrong lol would not be the first time when it comes to Arma scripting. Your demo works perfect thank you very much. I don't have to edit ammo for 18 different unit setups for this mission. I need the test in the real mission to see if there is something with the few mod/scripts I have incorporated into the mission that might be causing the issue or is it just user error 🤪.

    A way to obtain crates early on in hopes of getting blue prints... do your challenges. A lot of challenges give crate rewards. Be sure to do them.

    There is still the problem with the floating wreck of the Mora. At least on latest stable branch.

    not sure if you are already aware but some few things i have seen. the A-10 sometimes wont change the weapon when i hit F. it just flashes the same weapon. and the C-130's interior light is extremely dim rather than lighting the whole cargo bay. and was wondering if being able to load the MOAB is being saved for the MC-130J Commando.
  26. Welcome on BI forum remoteExec the add Action (hold or not) is useful if you spawn an object and then making this action visible by all players. No need to remoteExec it if this command/function is in init field of an edited object. Any player will run the add Action (hold) if placed in this init field. Now, the second point, even if players can see/act your add Action (hold or not), the code will work locally. That means, you have to consider the arguments and effects localities for EACH command/function you run from this code. Example: doesn't need to be remote exec. needs to be remote exec on each PC you want to see this effect (sounds with playMusic, playSound are EL usually) is a little bit tricky. If the object is on the same PC as the player who triggers the action (same locality), you don't need to remote exec for Arguments, and Effects locality applies. Example: usually an hosted server hosts the objects like empty cars, crates, and the player as host can run AL code on it, not the other players. You can check that, with a car which will change its locality along with the driver. If you want to avoid this locality problem, you need to remoteExec on the PC which own the object. Example with playMoveNow for a code making on a remote unit, a prisoner animation. Even if the effect is global, you need to reach the unit on the PC which owns it : [ oneUnitHere, {oneUnitHere playMoveNow "AmovPercMstpSsurWnonDnon" } ] remoteExec ["call",oneUnitHere ];
  27. Are there logfiles? After downloading FAST2 it worked fine until I had to restart the server. Now when I run the FAST2.exe nothing happens, it starts a task that is killed / closed right away again. Tried to redownload / "reinstall", tried to delete the Profile folder in the game folder. No success. Does your application create any files outside the application & game folder? Found nothing in Documents, AppData, Temp folder but this issue is really weird. Edit: Okay, after renaming the installation folder from "FAST2" to "FAST", the application starts again. But I've got to set everything up again. Until next restart where the story repeats 😕

    Reaper doesn't show ammo count. F-22 canon sound is old and incorrect. A-10 sometimes wont change the weapon when laser is on.
