    Arma 3 Units - Feedback thread

    My friend reported to me an error trying to log in using their Steam account without first having a Bohemia account. got error: {"success":false,"message":"Permission denied.","code":403} It worked after creating a Bohemia and linking the Steam account.

    BI unannounced game (VR)

    It doesn't have to be infantry. I was thinking the obvious choice is Zeus VR.
  4. I can't seem to figure out how to script a guard waypoint. I think I'm having trouble with synchronizing the trigger with the waypoint. I am trying this: private _trigger = createTrigger ["EAST G", getMarkerPos "guard_1"]; { if (side _x == east) then { private _wp = _x addWaypoint [position leader _x, 0]; _wp setWaypointType "GUARD"; _trigger synchronizeWaypoint [_wp]; }; } forEach allGroups; The units do not seem to guard the marker position. If I manually create this using the editor and I synchronize the waypoint with a trigger made in the editor then it works fine. But I need to make this work solely in a script.

    Custom sound, superb, repeat?

    try this inside your onActivation for your repeating trigger: _=thisTrigger spawn {while {triggerActivated _this} do {playSound3D ["A3\missions_f\data\sounds\click.wss", player]; sleep .25}}
  6. Create this file initPlayerServer.sqf: [_this select 0, 3] call BIS_fnc_respawnTickets;
  7. I would like events for reviving. An event handler should be able to be added to the game so I can receive events. HandleRevive [unit, revivor, state] unit: soldier that is down. revivor: soldier that is reviving downed soldier. state: "started", "canceled", "completed"
  8. As a group leader when you pull up the map you will see your units displayed by blue dots on the map and units listed in the lower left in boxes in order 1-n. Both these should be selectable with the mouse. Clicking on a blue dot or clicking the unit's status box should toggle selection for making issuing commands easier. Optionally it would be nice to be able to select a set of units by drawing a selection box around an area to quickly select multiple units.
  9. I finally figured it out. description.ext: showMap = 0; initPlayerLocal.sqf: waitUntil {time > 0.01}; showMap true; openMap [true, true]; mapAnimAdd [0, 1, [0, 0]]; mapAnimCommit; sleep 0.1; openMap [false, false];
  10. _unitPos = [1760,5920,0]; _group = createGroup west; _unit = "B_engineer_F" createUnit [_unitPos, _group]; _wpPos = [1765,5872,0]; _radius = 10; _wp = _group addWaypoint [_wpPos, _radius]; _unit setCurrentWaypoint _wp;
  11. If a player starts as a non engineer class and then respawns as an "Engineer" then the player won't have repairing abilities even though I added engineer = 1 in the respawn inventory. How do I get the respawned player to have the repair ability? class CfgRespawnInventory { class WEST1 { displayName = "Engineer"; engineer = 1; weapons[] = {"arifle_MXC_Holo_pointer_F","hgun_P07_F","Rangefinder","Throw","Put"}; magazines[] = {"30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag","30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag","30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag","30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag","30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag","30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag","16Rnd_9x21_Mag","16Rnd_9x21_Mag","16Rnd_9x21_Mag","HandGrenade","HandGrenade","SmokeShell","SmokeShellGreen","SmokeShellBlue","SmokeShellOrange","Chemlight_green","Chemlight_green"}; Items[] = {"FirstAidKit"}; linkedItems[] = {"V_Chestrig_rgr","H_HelmetB_desert","ItemMap","ItemCompass","ItemWatch","ItemRadio","NVGoggles"}; uniformClass = "U_B_CombatUniform_mcam_vest"; backpack = "B_Kitbag_mcamo_Eng"; icon = "iconManEngineer"; }; // I also tried this class WEST2 {vehicle = "B_engineer_F";}; };
  12. I'll add insult to injury: BIS, make up your mind. Spotrep 40 says old 54 became 51 and then sitrep 102 says 51 (old) > 54. http://dev.arma3.com/post/spotrep-00040 Changed: Zafir was re-chambered (old class name for magazines 150Rnd_762x54_Box became 150Rnd_762x51_Box) Changed: Rahim was re-chambered (old class name for magazines 10Rnd_762x54_Mag became 10Rnd_762x51_Mag) http://dev.arma3.com/post/sitrep-00102 Zafir: 150Rnd_762x51_Box (old) > 150Rnd_762x54_Box (new) Rahim: 10Rnd_762x51_Mag (old) > 10Rnd_762x54_Mag (new)
  13. The answer you've all been waiting for: _spawnpos = getPos thisTrigger;
