  1. Take On Video Settings! - Discuss

    Normally I do keep it overclocked, but this summer been having cooling issues in general with a heatwave so had to roll it back to stock for the time being. I'm just not understanding where my performance hit is coming from settings wise as I've said my differences in ArmA from the rollback have been negligible FPS wise. It seems like no matter what settings I use I'm getting around 20 FPS average on the Benchmark. Edit: Overclocking did boost my FPS a bit, but not a whole lot.
  2. Take On Video Settings! - Discuss

    Anyone have any suggestions for some tweaks so I can get at least 30fps average? I've tried following the guide and spent an hour or so trying to tweak to no avail. System Specs: i7 940 @ 2.93 Ghz 12 GB DDR3 1600 RAM 1 TB 7200RPM HD Radeon HD 5770 1GB video card I never had this much of an issue with the ArmA titles and managed to get them running in good FPS no problem.
  3. Is there a trick to getting SweetFX working when launching Arma 2:CO or Arma 3 using Play withSIX? When I launch through Steam it works no problem, but using Play withSIX SweetFX is disabled in 2 CO and 3. Also Play withSIX seemed to make my 3 Steam launch unusable due to a couple errors with shaders and such...
  4. If the bunker has positions in it like say a house you could use the buildingPos command like _soldier setPos (_house1 buildingPos 2)
  5. So I have a script that in theory should be working, but I'm having a few issues. First sometimes the units aren't spawning into building positions. Second sometimes by the time I get to the location the units are already dead. Third for some reason even though I have independents set to be friendly to OPFOR, they're not attacking my unit. I'm using invisible helipads for the Hostage1, Hostage2 etc positioning. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // Randomize placement of a group within 7 spots // random.sqf ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////// if (! isServer) exitwith {}; // NOTE: in multiplayer, only server should create random numbers. // Create Group for units to be spawned into; must have group created BEFORE spawning units in. _SideHQ = createCenter resistance; _SideHQ1 = createCenter civilian; groupAlpha = createGroup resistance; groupHostage = createGroup civilian; // Pick Location /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// _posHostage = [Hostage1, Hostage2, Hostage3, Hostage4, Hostage5, Hostage6, Hostage7] call BIS_fnc_selectRandom; _extraction = getMarkerPos "Extraction"; _house = nearestBuilding _posHostage; _position = 0; HostageString = format ["%1",_posHostage]; //Generate Hostage H1 = groupHostage createUnit ["Rocker1", (_house buildingPos _position), [], 0, "NONE"]; removeAllWeapons H1; nul = [H1] execVM "Hostage_male.sqf"; //Generate Soldiers G1 = groupAlpha createUnit ["GUE_Soldier_3", (_house buildingPos (_position+1)), [], 0, "NONE"]; G1 setdir 360; G1 setSkill 1; G2 = groupAlpha createUnit ["GUE_Soldier_AR", (_house buildingPos (_position+2)), [], 0, "NONE"]; G2 setdir 360; G2 setSkill 1; G3 = groupAlpha createUnit ["GUE_Soldier_MG", (_house buildingPos (_position+3)), [], 0, "NONE"]; G3 setdir 360; G3 setSkill 1; G4 = groupAlpha createUnit ["GUE_Soldier_MG", (_house buildingPos (_position+4)), [], 0, "NONE"]; G4 setdir 360; G4 setSkill 1; G5 = groupAlpha createUnit ["GUE_Soldier_Medic", (_house buildingPos (_position+5)), [], 0, "NONE"]; G5 setdir 360; G5 setSkill 1; //Triggers //Victory _trgVic = createTrigger ["EmptyDetector" , getMarkerPos "Extraction"]; _trgVic setTriggerArea [50, 50, 0, false]; _trgVic setTriggerType "END1"; _trgVic setTriggerActivation ["ANY", "PRESENT", false]; _trgVic setTriggerTimeout [10, 10, 10, false ]; _trgVic setTriggerStatements ["H1 in thislist", "", ""]; //Loss _trgLoss = createTrigger["EmptyDetector", getPos H1]; _trgLoss setTriggerArea [0, 0, 0, false]; _trgLoss setTriggerType "LOOSE"; _trgLoss setTriggerActivation ["ANY", "PRESENT", false]; _trgLoss setTriggerTimeout [10, 10, 10, false ]; _trgLoss setTriggerStatements ["!(alive H1)", "", ""];
  6. Add Night vision goggles

    this additem "NVGoggles";this assignitem "NVGoggles";this action["NVGoggles", this]; That gives you the goggles, assigns them to the slot, and starts you with them turned on.
  7. I wish I still had my dog, seeing her and her reaction when I came back from a year in Iraq... nothing beats a dogs unconditional love and trust. I agree, don't neglect your pets, because someday they won't be there. So to make this a bit more on topic for the board, who's gonna do what when the dog models get added (or imported from 2) into 3?

  10. Dynamic Guarded Hostage Rescue

    Alright I have it working like I want and I think it should be MP compatible if anyone wants to test it. Usage: Place 6 Invisible Helipads units on the map named Hostage1, Hostage2, Hostage3 etc and one marker named Extraction. A hostage guarded by 4 OPFOR soldiers will be spawned at one of these 6 locations, he won't move and has an untie action bound to him which will cause him to stand, and silently join your group. Get him to the Extraction marker zone to execute the trigger in the script (in this case Victory, but that can obviously be tweaked), or if he is killed failure.

    Thanks man, any tips on finding the ones I'm apparently missing?
  12. Dynamic Guarded Hostage Rescue

    Weird how'd I miss that, been using this link as my ref for ArmA 3 http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Category:Scripting_Commands_Arma_3 You don't happen to have a link to the current or A3 available switchMove available strings do you? Apparently my gogglefu is lacking
  13. Dynamic Guarded Hostage Rescue

    Because I've never seen that command or documentation on it. BIS_fnc_selectRandom can you hook me up with some more info?
  14. Dynamic Guarded Hostage Rescue

    Appreciated, ok so currently it uses markers for the zones the hostage and guards are spawned to. So a command like this works because getMarkerPos calls for a string _markerPos = getMarkerPos format ["markerA%1",round ((random 6) + 0.5)]; so this works fine when using markers Now when I switch to the Invisible Helipad unit, I need to use getPos getPos requires an object for it's argument, so I either need to redo my script to use a random into an if then setup or a switch Or if I can convert a string to an object it saves me doing that, and a bunch of redundant lines that will be copy pasted for an if then or switch script. Make sense? Maybe that old thread when I first started this in Arma 2 may help make a bit more sense http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?94646-Random-spawn-positions-for-AI Cheers for removing statements and such, I've done such already as this was made when I first started scripting in Arma and looking at it everytime I have bits open in notepad++ I'm tweaking and seeing things to lose and optimize. Good old motto of always keep learning.
  15. Unless you're actually using your cars array multiple times you don't have to define it beforehand. You can just do it right within the function. {veh = [_x] execVM "vehicle.sqf"} forEach [car1,car2,car3,car4]; cuts down the lines you need.
