    I have been a HUGE fan of the ARMA franchise, probably long before many of you were born.

    I totally fell in love with Operation:Flashpoint (AKA OFP, AKA arma:coldwareAssault) when i had a free demo on a CD on the cover of a PC Gamer magazine! 
    (I know right? old AF or what?)

    After dipping in and out of Arma for many years it's held a very special place in my heart and is probably my favourite game series of all time ever.
    I also love the Mass Effect series but for different reasons, but nothing can hold a candle to ARMA in my eyes.

    I'm also trying to learn to play the guitar...i'm not very good.

  1. sorry, created this as a topic, rather than a post. My bad 😞
  2. Hello all! Does anyone know if its possible to import old maps from arma3, specifically Malden 2035 to Reforger? Id love to see a new official malden map added but in the meantime do you think it's possible somehow? If so, how? OR has someone done it already?
  3. ..i see now. 😶 I'd butchered another script and merged them. I completely see the issue. Thanks mate.
  4. Huh....ok, cool. Yet it worked on the Huron. Odd. 🤔 anyway... Your gonna regret that! 😉 I have a bunch! of questions, such as "Can i get a medic to drop used 'medical Garbage' when healing?" and a more involved Logistics "Hump and Dump" project im making zero progress on! ( I've had a chat with the the Senedd, and that makes you welsh, butty 😉 ) again, thanks for your help dude. You definitely seem to know your stuff.
  5. So sorry! I only just saw this response! I'll give it a whirl. cheers dude.
  6. DUDE! That is awesome! Thanks so much. Tested and works on the Huron! but..one Welsh guy to another;) ..how would i do this for the ghoshawk? I tried this, but it wont work.. [] spawn { while {alive heli1} do { if (getPosATL heli1#2 < 3) then { ( _this select 0 ) animateDoor ["Door_R", 1, false]; ( _this select 0 ) animateDoor ["Door_L", 1, false]; } else { ( _this select 0 ) animateDoor ["Door_R", 0, false]; ( _this select 0 ) animateDoor ["Door_L", 0, false]; }; sleep 1; } }; I'm guessing its the #2 bit, right? Anyway, i don't want to push it, thanks again mate. I'll figure it out from here hopefully. 🙂 And i'll check out your other links there! thanks.
  7. Hi guys, Can someone please help me with this one? I'm trying to get a logistics system working. I'm terrible at coding so have been trying to do this in editor, but cant seem to get it to work. Its just a silly little background emersion I think might be cool, to see iDap running supplies around the map or something. I know it can be done, but i dont have the knowledge; 😞 Lets say Heli01 brings in a cargoBox01 from location01, drops it at location02 and fly's back to location01 to get more. (sling load, easy) I then want Truck01 to drive to Location02, load cargoBox01 (cant seem to do this at all!!) Truck01 then drives to Location03, unloads the cargoBox01, then drives back to Location02 and cycles. I can load the truck in editor and he'll even unload, but I cant for the life of me get him to do in game! Helicopter is easy enough via the sling load. Further to that and more advanced I'd like for them to keep doing this whilst there are boxes in a location or when triggered. Then when no boxes or trigger, land the chopper and park the truck (engineoff). Any ideas or tips greatly appreciated guys.
  8. Pushing my luck i know, but since the thread is active again; Would it be possible to see this if the heli is under say 10 feet of the ground? So the doors open and close as it lands or takes off?
  9. So pleased to see this is a recent thread as I'm just now coming back to AMRA3 (after a LONG time away!) and want to use this function too. I've personally got it working in the most basic fashion; Triger activates. Hunters go looking for Hunted. Hunters kill hunted. Hunters stay put(!) I cant make them 'return' home though. Not even when they kill Hunted! My main question is; can I send them home if the trigger turns false? So, if Hunted leaves the trigger area, Hunter goes back to base. If Hunted goes back in to the trigger, Hunter comes out again. and so on. Any help anyone could offer would be much appreciated.

  12. Hi guys. I'm back after a VERY LONG time away, and find out that i still can not code to save my life! Can someone help me please? I'm sure this exists elsewhere and I'm sorry, I have searched but came up blank. I'm trying to write a little script to drop me and my AI (or player) team out of a BlackFoot. I 'could' give each unit a parachute backpack and force them to 'eject' as the plane goes through a trigger right? But I don’t want to do that, as the units will loose their default backpacks (medic, ammo bearers, explosive guys, etc). So what I’m doing is spawning a 'steerable_parachute' behind the plane and moving each unit in turn using movindriver. The problem is that they will not move to the chutes if they are in the plane. If they start on the ground, they'll instantly move to the chute. If i put them in the plane first at the start of the mission, they will not lose their association with the plane. UnassignVehicle doesn’t work. Can anyone please help me sort this stupid little issue please, it's driving me nuts! (I could share the script if you wish, but it's so rudimentary (and doesn't work!) there's no real point.
  13. As well as my above question. How do we change the factions used in SecOps? I cant figure it out. Please help.
  14. Sorry i forget, how do i specify what chopper comes? Im playing combined ops, and only the USMC UH1 comes. I know its something to do with forcing the module to produce only US related items, but cant for the life of me remember how. (same goes for the Ambiant Combat module too).
