    Adjust stance down on W+S while moving?

    No, I still use 'Shift" for running. It would be great if I could use the same setup (ie Scroll-Wheel+Shift ) to adjust my stance while running.

    I use Scroll-Wheel+Shift to adjust my stance. Great for popping your head up, taking a shot then hiding again. I find the 'Ctrl' key to hard to use and often press 'Shift' instead.
  6. Thanks for ideas. We are already using AIS so with a little help from Psycho I was able to trigger an end scene. This is the trigger condition (see AIS thread mentioned) I used to detected when all players were dead or incapacitated: "({!alive _x || {_x getVariable ["AIS_unconscious", false]}} count playableUnits) >= (count playableUnits)" When trigger activated I executed end scene script: "[] execVM "Scene_Outro_Loser.sqf;"

    A3 Wounding System (AIS by Psycho)

    Thanks again. Implemented this today and it works.

    A3 Wounding System (AIS by Psycho)

    @psychobastard Thanks for a this great script it is becoming a standard in our missions. Is there a way to detect when all all playable units are incapacitated? By that, I mean when all playable unit are injured and no one can be revived/healed etc. I would like to be able to detect this to trigger an end scene.
  9. We use respawn "SIDE: or "GROUP" in all our missions as we play with MP using teamSwitch. Building missions which allow teamSwitch allows us to play coop games when we do not enough players to fill all playable roles and the AI is being stupid. Also great when an AI cannot do something or is taking to long to do it (e.g. gets stuck, healing a wounded soldier, going into/out of buildings").
  10. Thanks. That's a good idea but how do you do it, as when all players are dead the mission ends immediately. An example would be great! I thought it would be as simple as unticking "Mission fail when everyone dead" in the MP "Ruleset" but that did not work.
  11. Hi I have made a coop mission. I want to run a script (which does a short end movie) after all players have died, and then end the mission using BIS_fnc_EndMission. However, the mission ends as soon as the last playable man is killed and the standard "MISSION FAILED -All players died" ending occurs. We are playing/testing it in the 3den editor (ie 3D editor) as non-dedicated server via LAN. I am using 3D editor and have the following settings set within the editor in Attributes->Multiplayer menu: - Respawn: Switch to side member; - Ruleset: -> Mission fail when everyone dead: not ticked -> Single player death screen: not ticked -> Switch to another character: ticked - Allow Manual Respawn: ticked - Enable Team Switch: ticked I have spent hours searching online with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Did anyone work out how to do this?

    I found this Graph showing "skill vs skillFinal vs Profile Difficulty" here: Graph notes: 1) This still appears to hold true for ArmA 3 version 1.74.142559. 2) The "Effective skill" is the value returned from skillFinal function for any sub-skill. 3) The "Profile difficulty" can be either " Game Difficulty: AI Level: Skill or Precision". 3.1) Setting " Game Difficulty: AI Level: Precision" value alters the skillFinal value of "aimingAccuracy and "aimingShake". 3.2) Setting " Game Difficulty: AI Level: Skill" value alters the skillFinal value for all the other sub-skills. It is my understanding that the only critical number is the skillFinal value for each sub-skill (i.e "aimingAccuracy", "aimingShake" etc). It does not matter how this value is determined/calculated (i.e. any combination of Game Difficulty, editor skill slider, setSkill function etc). Based on this premise I have been doing the following: A) Setting my sub-skill values within my init.sqf file as follows: "{ _x setskill ["aimingShake",0.2]; _x setskill ["aimingAccuracy",0.2]; } forEach allUnits;" B) Making and testing my missions using the "Normal" AI difficulty setting (i.e."AI Level: Skill" =0.7, "AI Level: Precision" = 0.5). Using this approach someone can play my mission as I intended by setting the Game Difficulty of AI to "Normal". If they think it is to easy then they can increase it to "Expert" or make it easier by setting "Novice". This approach should work base on the graph above and I believe it is how BIS planned it to work.

    @Grumpy Old Man Thank you very much. I will have a look at it tomorrow. I have produced a table below that shows(on average) how many shots it takes for an AI soldier to hit an enemy soldier from varying distances (100m,250m) after he first sees(spots) the target. Note that these tests done using ArmA 3 version 1.74.142559 Below is a table summarising my basic test results. Column 1 is skillFinal for both "aimingAccuracy and "aimingShake".(As I understand it, some function of skill and AI precision produces the FINAL sub-skill value). Column 2 number of shots when target is 100m away. Column 2 number of shots when target is 250m away. ----------------------------- skillFinal, 100m, 250m ----------------------------- 1.00, 2.0, 2.1 0.75, 2.0, 2.3 0.50, 1.7, 3.8 0.25, 2.5, 7.7 0.20, 3.6, 12. 0.10, 7.7, 27. 0.00, >60, >60 ----------------------------- Notes: 1) Both AI soldier and his target are prone (i.e. lying down). 2) the AI soldier is a CSAT Rifleman firing an Katiba 6.5mm. 3) At 500m or more the AI does not fire. 4) 20 tests were done to determine each value. 5) Tests done using ArmA 3 version 1.74.142559 6) These values can be converted to a probability (eg. 3.8 shots = 26.3% (100/3.8) chance a shot will hit it's target). From the table, a prone AI soldier with skillFinal value of 0.50 for both "aimingAccuracy and "aimingShake" will have a 26.3% probability of hitting a prone target 250m away once the target has been spotted for the first time. Looking at the raw data, he will hit the target within 2 shots 30% of the time.
