  1. Guess you have to un-stash from your brian. ;)
  2. hideOnUse: Boolean - (optional) If set to true, it will hide the action menu after selecting that action. If set to false, it will leave the action menu open and visible after selecting that action, leaving the same action highlighted, for the purpose of allowing you to reselect that same action quickly, or to select another action. Might be right, not sure. Kind of useless in a way in my opinion if thats the case.
  3. one way you can prevent people from using the action again is to delete the object. Name it in the editor, then at the end of the search and the task completed: deleteVehicle _intel; Another way you can prevent them from using your action is to hide the action on use: Number = unitName addAction [title, filename, (arguments, priority, showWindow, hideOnUse, shortcut, condition, positionInModel, radius, radiusView, showIn3D, available, textDefault, textToolTip)] ; This is your complete addaction call source: http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/addAction Notice one of the arguments is hideOnUse. Refer to below post hideOnUse is for just hiding the action when you use it. For transmitting the tasks there is a couple of ways you can approach this: - One way is to use a trigger. From experience and what I read you can use the trigger to transmit the task globally and I believe is JIP compatible. The easiest way to accomplish this is to destroy the intel object, by deleting it. When the trigger detects its not alive anymore, with the condition !alive objectNameHere, the condition will fire and in the condition you have your new task assignment. You can also hint from the same trigger that the task has been updated. Second way is continue what you were doing but use this for your tasks: newTask = player createSimpleTask ["tankDestroycache"]; newTask setSimpleTaskDescription ["The Enemy Stached some weapons in Tsoukalie. According to the documents found it supports Camp Maxwell and Air Station Mike-26. If we can Destroy the Cache the enemy will be weakend giving us a strategic advantage.", "tankDestroycache", "Destroy Weapons Cache"]; player setCurrentTask newTask; Then to send a hint out try this at the end of your script: [["Task Updated"],"BIS_fnc_guiMessage",nil,true] spawn BIS_fnc_MP; There is also the briefing modules in game, which allow you to set a condition of when they become active. I have not used them for a while, but I will look at them again and respond.

    [ALPHA] ARMA 3 Crate Filler

    Here is the full code I am using: _box = _this select 0; _resupplyTime = 800; _amount = 30; while{true}do { clearWeaponCargoGlobal _box; clearMagazineCargoGlobal _box; clearItemCargoGlobal _box; clearBackpackCargoGlobal _box; _CfgPacks = configFile >> "cfgVehicles"; for "_i" from 0 to (count _CfgPacks)-1 do { _pack = _CfgPacks select _i; if(isClass _pack) then { _packName = configName _pack; _veh_class = getText(_pack >> "vehicleClass"); if(_veh_class == "Backpacks")then { _box addBackpackCargoGlobal[_packName,_amount]; }; }; }; sleep _resupplyTime; }; In the initialization: theBackPackBox = [this] execVM "Scripts\backpacks.sqf"; The box that I am using is, not sure if it matters: [blue] Supply Box

    [ALPHA] ARMA 3 Crate Filler

    clearWeaponCargoGlobal _box; clearMagazineCargoGlobal _box; clearItemCargoGlobal _box; clearBackpackCargoGlobal _box; //Backpacks are located in cfgvehicles _CfgPacks = configFile >> "cfgVehicles"; for "_i" from 0 to (count _CfgPacks)-1 do { _pack = _CfgPacks select _i; if(isClass _pack) then { _packName = configName _pack; _veh_class = getText(_pack >> "vehicleClass");//Rather than using the type which is shared by other vehicles, I used the class type which was unique. if(_veh_class == "Backpacks")then { _box addBackpackCargoGlobal[_packName,_amount];//It will only add 1 pack for some reason. }; }; }; This script is based of your script/logic. This will pull all the backpacks from the cfgvehicles. The packs with no pictures, do not work.

    Problem with arrays

    Hello BlackMamb, First thank you for your reply, it helped me in what I was trying to accomplish. I have a question about that _tempGroup variable, if I wanted to rename it with each increment of _i and add the _i value to the end of it, how would I do that? (_tempGroup + _i + "") would work? Thanks again for your help.
  7. Hello, I am trying to do the following : Create an Array Assign the individual elements of the Array values After I am done using the array elements set them back to empty private["_location1","_location2","_location3","_location4","_groups","_route","_selectedLocation","_groupVariable"]; _route = _this select 0; //Route 1 _location1 = [[513.62207,2746.9282,310.05081],[330.89847,2698.4902,291.2688],[261.56473,2774.7625,285.56805],[151.06387,2687.646,304.80322]]; //Route 2 _location2 = [[322.29877,3026.4014,285.99854],[259.63757,3213.3926,275.20633],[379.46701,3360.7385,275.84738],[194.46994,3453.6235,244.57669]]; //Route 3 _location3 = _location2 + [383.2887,3590.7268,246.25278]; //Route 3 _location4 = _location3 + [[642.60834,3516.9346,283.97449],[779.95288,3585.0515,278.79163],[1022.7352,3554.5818,298.41965],[1332.6926,3689.5344,251.16754],[1604.546,3643.4819,238.99081]]; //Add groups to groups array _groups = ["_group1","_group2","_group3","_group4"]; //Create an HQ for east _eastHQ = createCenter east; switch(_route) do { case 1: { for [{_i=0},{_i<=2},{_i=_i+1}] do { _selectedLocation = _location1 call BIS_fnc_selectRandom; (_groups select _i) = createGroup east; (_groups select _i) = [_selectedLocation, EAST, 5] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup; [(_groups select _i), _selectedLocation, 10] call bis_fnc_taskPatrol; hint format ["Location: %1 Selected Group: %2",_selectedLocation,(_groups select _i)]; sleep 5; }; }; etc... Problems arise in the for loop which is where I am trying to assign values to the array elements. Basically I am trying to make that array a variable holder, which contains groups. Would really appreciate the help, Thanks.
  8. Hello PELHAM, If you are looking for an online video tutorials you can refer to this link(http://thenewboston.org/tutorials.php) where you can learn more than just Java, and they are all free. Anyways, if you navigate to the tutorials section and search for the java beginner and start your way from there. You will start learning from the very basic, including how to install the JDK, and eclipse. And as you get comfortable, you move to higher level tutorials. Another very important link you should always refer to is : http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/ . Good luck, if you have any questions you can send me a PM.

    When you reach a speed before taking off runway you get the option to pull gear up, even though you are still on the ground(It does pull up gear if you click it). When I pressed "CAPS LOCK" to activate afterburner, the afterburner was coming out from the center, unlike the blue after burner colors you have. When I say center I mean between the two turbofans.

    AI Logic

    Here is what I have added and going to try it now, please let me know if I have anything wrong, thanks. switch (true) do { case (!alive boat && alive heli): { Gomez doMove position GomezHeli; waitUntil{Gomez distance GomezHeli<5}; Gomez moveInDriver GomezHeli; Gomez doMove position escape; }; case (!alive heli && alive boat): { Gomez doMove position GomezBoat; waitUntil{Gomez distance GomezBoat<5}; Gomez moveInDriver GomezBoat; Gomez doMove position escape; }; case (alive heli && alive boat) : { if(Gomez distance GomezBoat < Gomez distance GomezHeli)then { Gomez doMove position GomezBoat; waitUntil{Gomez distance GomezBoat<5}; Gomez moveInDriver GomezBoat; Gomez doMove position escape; } else { Gomez doMove position GomezHeli; waitUntil{Gomez distance GomezHeli<5}; Gomez moveInDriver GomezHeli; Gomez doMove position escape; }; }; default { Gomez disableAI "Move"; }; };

    AI Logic

    I was thinking of using a "switch" but did not know what to put in the condition field. Will give it a try, thank you for your reply. unknownx9
  12. Hello, If only I could use "else if" that would have made it easier for me. Anyways, I am making a multiplayer mission in which I need an AI to make a decision. I am trying to figure out how to make the AI decide where to go based on : 1. The vehicle is alive. 2. The distance from the vehicle. I currently have 2 vehicles which I placed for the AI to plan and escape with, if they are alive. First condition has to be that if both vehicles are alive or not destroyed the AI will then determine which one is the closest and move to that, and then get into it and drive it to an escape object which is place in the body of water. By the way the two vehicles are a chopper, and a boat. Also this AI is randomly spawned using a grouped marker at 3 locations, also he is moved with the setPos inside the buildings. The second option is if 1 vehicle is destroyed and another is active, the AI would be able to determine which one it is and move to it to try and escape, to the escape object placed in the body of water. If both vehicles are destroyed the AI stays in his position and disableAI"Move" is applied to him. I would like to keep this in a trigger in game, but if an outside script is the only solution, that is okay. I have tried this in my triggers but did not work: Trigger 1: Blufor, Once, Detected by OPFOR Cond: this && (alive GomezHeli || alive GomezBoat) Activation: if(alive GomezHeli) then{Gomez doMove position GomezHeli; waitUntil{Gomez distance GomezHeli<5}; Gomez moveInDriver GomezHeli; Gomez doMove position escape} else{boatTrigger setTriggerActivation ["WEST", "EAST D", false]}; Trigger 2 (Trigger Name: boatTrigger): None(Changed by the previous trigger to Blufor), Once, Detected by Opfor Cond: this && (alive GomezHeli || alive GomezBoat) Activation: if(alive GomezBoat) then{Gomez doMove position GomezBoat; waitUntil{Gomez distance GomezBoat<5}; Gomez moveInDriver GomezBoat; Gomez doMove position escape} else{Gomez disableAI "Move"}; Any help would be greatly appreciated. unknownx9
  13. Weapons: -They do not have a reload sound. -C6 GPMG iron sight has some major zoom capability. Chopper CH-146 Griffen: When sitting in the pilot seat of the chopper and engine started while still on ground level, the outside armor becomes transparent and you could see inside. Also, are you guys planning on adding custom sounds for your weapons? Or just going with default Arma 2 weapon sounds?

    F/A-18 Super Hornet

    Thank you for taking the time to create such a great addon. I was looking at the menu system you have setup and specifically the Avionics/Nav System. When I select it, the panel appears on the bottom right of my screen with only the top right view of the panel visible, not sure if that is they way it was designed or something else. Another thing I accidentally noticed is landing without any gear works great as you can do a belly landing, but I was hovering of the ground, and can still maneuver the aircraft on a sharp turn. Also when I selected the gears they dropped and they were damaged and could not taxi anymore, but they still pushed the jet up and deployed. Would really appreciate it if you could make a Canadian version/texture of the F18. Thanks again.
