  1. Hey guys, sorry if this is a noob question. I am wondering how to make a helicopter wait on the ground until me and my squad gets in, and then lift off and go to the waypoint I put down. It probably is really simple but I am having a stupid moment and can't think. Thanks for any help in advance.
  2. Hey guys, so I thought this would be a cool idea. While the RHS devs are working on the mod, why not make some missions together to create a sort of mini-campaign using RHS? I think it would be a lot of fun. What we have to do is come up with the following: What map we are going to use What the storyline will be Characters Types of missions # of Missions I think it would be best if we assign each other different jobs, and then use something like Dropbox and/or OneDrive to upload and share our work with each other so we can keep up with each other and share knowledge. What do you think? Would you be willing to help and make some missions/scenarios? Let's do this!
  3. Yeah we need to brainstorm. To be honest, I forgot I wrote this post and just rembered while trying to think up a mission while bored. I think we should restart this idea. Is anyone in? I'm willing to work on some missions, we just need to figure out what the missions are going to consist of.

    FHQ Firearms and Weapons Pack

    Looks awesome Alwarren. Question. Do you model the weapons yourself? Do you modify existing models? JW.
  5. Hey guys, just a question that popped into my head. What mission/scenario do you play the most? I mostly mean Singleplayer scenarios/missions, but if you play say, SaOk's WLA together with some friends, that's ok. Let us know! Me, I play a lot of Whole Lotta Altis by SaOk.
  6. I might be able to attend. Infantry if I show up :D I am not really sure if I will be able to, so don't save a spot for me or anything, as I don't want to take someone else's place.
  7. Hey guys, having a little issue here. I am playing WLA (Whole Lotta Altis) and when I try to talk to a civ via SHIFT + Y it brings up the Zeus interface. Is there any way to disable this? Or is this a problem with the mission itself? I have had this problem with other missions as well, but I can't remember exactly which ones. Thanks for any help, Brendan
  8. Yeah I wasn't sure if I should post this in that section since this is just an idea/concept. Not an actual thing just yet. But if any of the mods want to move the thread, please do it :D

    Death Valley: WTF, BI

    I have been stuck on "Tipping Point" for about a month, even though I have beaten the campaign before. My squadmates keep dying and I haven't even gotten to the part where you are in the valley going towards the boat and they start firing mortars at you. I think it is absolutely ridiculous.
  10. Hey guys, for a while now I have been having some sort of bug when I start up A3. There is no UAV type background on the start menu like there usually is. All it is; is almost like an underwater view. It's really weird. Here is a video: Here is just a screen: Any help is appreciated.

    Start Menu Background Bug

    No, I'm not :D
  12. Hey guys, I was wondering what keybindings you use for which actions. I am just not sure what keys to use for the custom actions that won't interfere with the default controls.
  13. Hey guys, so I have been wondering this for a while and came across this template for a DEVGRU hangar, and inside it; it has a "Lone Survivor Lock and Load" table that I have been wondering how to make. What it is is just a table with a bunch of gear on it including weapons, magazines, helmets etc. I was just wondering if there is an easy way to make this or do I have to do it in the editor piece by piece? There is a picture of it here (it is the 4th picture): http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=26936 Thanks for any help. P.S. Maybe setpos?

    Special Ops Campaign

    Just came across this thread. I have just started creating scenarios and I am learning quickly and getting pretty good, all while enjoying it. So if anyone decides to do a community project for a SF campaign type thing, I would be interested.
  15. Hey guys, so I was just wondering if you guys have specific places you like to stage battles, play missions, start custom missions etc. I am looking to create a mission but am looking for a good place on any map whether it be Vanilla or AiATP to stage the mission. So, do you have some favorite locations? If so, would you care to share? Thanks, Brendan P.S. If you have a specific location on a map the Grid Coordinates can be helpful instead of everyone trying to eyeball where you are talking about. :D
  16. I really want to get into creating scenarios for Arma 3. Where should I start? What and where are the best tutorials for new people? Any help is much appreciated. Thanks! Brendan
  17. Specifically an APC vehicle that is with RHS: Escalation. But it has happened with pretty much any vehicle. What I may try is to disable RHS etc. and try using just vanilla vehicles and see if it works.
  18. So I posted a question about this in the Whola Lotta Altis thread, thinking it was in issue specifically related to that mission, but SaOk said that it wasn't a mission issue, so here I am! So my problem is that I order my 5th squad-mate into my vehicle (after squad-mates 2-4 get in) and he gets in, then immediately ejects/gets out. Also, every time this happens, my soldiers status changes to "Wait" and his changes to "Ready". Even if I change my status to "Done" using 0-1 or 0-0-1 (whichever one it is), and then I order him to get in, he will get in, then immediately get out and my status changes back to "Wait". Thanks for any help that anyone can offer. Much appreciated.

    Authentic Gameplay Modification

    In real life, Epinephrine takes less than 30 seconds to work, even IM (an injection, as I know this from experience). Morphine however, or any narcotic painkiller for that matter, takes longer to work than epinephrine, especially if it is given as an injection (injection takes much longer to work than say, IV). -------------------- On another note, I would love to see the medical system expanded in a couple ways. Here are some things I would like to see: • The introduction of fluids. Place an IV, run fluids. Maybe the need for fluids arises from dehydration or getting shot. • Other medications. I know the military uses medications such as Ketamine and Fentanyl. I don't know how this would be introduced or in what situation that the need for these medications arises, but still, for realism! (<lol) I am sure I can come up with some more things, but for now this is what I think.
  20. Got me there. I know I'm a noob at mission creation, don't have to tell me twice. What I was wondering exactly, was the recommended tutorials from the pros here.
  21. Hey guys, I don't know if this has been covered (and excuse me if it has), but the mission is somewhat bugged. For some reason one guy in my squad keeps getting into my vehicle when I ask, but then immediately gets out. So what happens is I get into a vehicle, then I press the ~ key and order my squad to "Get In". Everyone gets in, but then my squad-mate "James" gets in the vehicle, then immediately gets out, while the other soldiers stay in the vehicle, including me. At first I thought it was just a bug with using Takistan or Chernarus, but now it is happening on the vanilla Altis. I did notice however that when this happens, my soldier's status changes to "Wait" and James turns to "Ready" or "Move". I have tried multiple times to press 0-1 or 0-0-1 to set my status to "Done" but when I order him to get in again it resets the status to "Wait". I am using a lot of mods including AGM, RHS: Escalation, AiA TP, Blastcore A3, Blastcore Tracers, CBA, FHQ Accessories, ASDG Joint Rails, JSRS and Arma Enhanced Movement. Thanks for any help!

    RHS Escalation (AFRF and USAF)

    Hey guys, I had the mod installed before and it was working fine but now when I start ArmA it gives me the following error: Can't seem to fix it though. Any tips? Thanks in advance.
  23. This is awesome! Great tool. Great UI and great re-activeness. Great job, can't wait until it gets developed further.
  24. This thread is to help anyone who is having problems updating their ARMA 2 installation. This guide is for the standalone ARMA 2 and not for Combined Operations or standalone Operation Arrowhead. I hope you have use for this guide and good luck! The reason I made this guide is because I could not find one that thoroughly addressed the issue so I decided I needed to make one. So; without further ado, let's get started. If you are recieving the something like the following error: "ARMA 2 is not installed on your computer or your installation is corrupt" First, make sure you know what version of ARMA 2 you are running. Boot the game and look in the bottom left hand corner to see what version you are running. I was running 1.5, and wanted to update to 1.7. So first; navigate to your ARMA 2 installation directory. Uploaded with ImageShack.us Then; copy your installation directory address by double or right clicking the text and pressing control + c. Uploaded with ImageShack.us Next; press the start button on the bottom right hand corner of your screen and type in "regedit" and then click on it. Uploaded with ImageShack.us Now, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > wow6432node > Bohemia Interactive Studio > ARMA 2 > Uploaded with ImageShack.us Now; with this error; by default there should only be two keys one with a value and one without. Now create a new key by right clicking inside the regedit window and doing New > String Value and name it "Main". Now, inside the value text box; paste the directory address into the text box. Now press the enter key. Uploaded with ImageShack.us Then double click the (Default) string key and inside the text box, paste again. It should look like this: http://img227.imageshack.us/i/44480587.png/ Press enter. You are done! Now run the installer for the ARMA 2 patch and everything should work out great. If you have any questions, reply and I will be sure to answer them ASAP. Additional Information: This guide was made on a 64-bit operating system. Directories may be different for 32-bit operating systems. For example: On a 32-bit operating system there is no "wow6432node" folder. (at least I don't think so; if I am wrong please correct me!) This is for a STANDALONE ARMA 2 installation, and not Combined Operations or a standalone Operation Arrowhead installation. This is also not for the STEAM version of ARMA 2.
