  1. Have not tried Zeus but if it is the same as in normal Eden missions you will need a script: titleCut ["", "BLACK OUT", 5]; sleep 5; ["<t color='#ffffff' size = '1.2'>PLACE TEXT HERE<br />PLACE TEXT HERE</t>", -1,-1,14,6,0,789] spawn BIS_fnc_dynamicText; sleep 12; ["<t color='#ffffff' size = '1.2'>PLACE TEXT HERE<br />PLACE TEXT HERE</t>", -1,-1,14,6,0,789] spawn BIS_fnc_dynamicText; sleep 12; ["<t color='#ffffff' size = '1.2'>PLACE TEXT HERE<br />PLACE TEXT HERE</t>", -1,-1,10,6,0,789] spawn BIS_fnc_dynamicText; sleep 10; To call a script via a trigger you can use: null = execVM "nameOfScript.sqf"; There are other wayts to have text and such but the above is a good basis 👍
  2. Engine updates most likely not. Arma 3 is far from over however. Until the new engine is ready an Arma 4 will merely even be mentioned. I mean Arma 4 should take at least a year or two to appear. DayZ has to firstly become stable since the new Arma will be based on the DayZ engine. Until then new Arma DLCs will appear like the Contact one.
  3. More likely to find help here: https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/forum/154-arma-3-mission-editing-scripting/ Have you tried erasing and then re-creating the init.sqf file? Have never had an issue with the init.sqf but with triggers.... All was fixed when I erased the old trigger and placed a new one writing the exact same things.

    [SP/COOP-(1-6)] Surgical OP

    Mission no longer unplayable due to ASR AI3 update!
  5. Surgical OP Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) A four man BLUEFOR team has been arrested and is held on an entirely OPFOR controlled island! Will you be the ones to save them? 1.] Hypothesis: At Altis, a place occupied entirely by OPFOR forces, four of our soldiers were arrested by OPFOR troops while trying to sabotage some of the enemies' communication towers a few days back. Since their arrest we have decided to negotiate for their immediate release. Negotiate until we can send a Special Forces and a Sniper Team to rescue the prisoners at least. So, we offered Jindah, a high ranked OPFOR officer, 50.000$ so as for him to release the prisoners. He seemed to accept the offer if we paid him 25.000$ before the prisoners' release and 25.000$ afterwards. We said yes and we agreed to transfer the money in 2 days. So, today 24 hours prior to the supposedly money trasnfer a SFT, you, is ready to infiltrate the island and rescue the hostages. Just remember that being detected will have deadly consequences so use stealth tactics and hide dead bodies. And keep in mind that some trasnports with supplies have been hidden nearby the operation area so as to assist you. 2.] Important details: a)To play in SP you should be the LEADER of the ASSAULT SQUAD. In SP you will not have a sniper team assisting you. b)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. c)If you are detected the mission will not end. Due to Arma's wierd stealth environment we have decided to let you guys continue the mission. With consequences but you will be able to continue. d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in your SQUAD. Those units should exist for your convenience. In SP disabling the Sniper team is advised. e)If you do not have the ASR AI 3 mod, it would be great to install it. It really enhances gameplay and takes Arma 3 to a whole new level. f)Respawn:Instant g)For more missions you can visit our website here and to keep up with the latest mission updates and releases you can subscribe to our newsletter. 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Serious combat, stealth, organizing and stealth abilities . 3.2]Technical: a)Arma 3 Apex b)Marksman DLC c)CBA - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 d)ASR AI3 - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24080 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: None 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

  6. Prepaid Nightmare Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) Time is running out! We need to assault the resort NOW before the terrorists start executing more civilians. 1.] Hypothesis: A few weeks back Righteous Blessing, a paramilitary group of religious fanatics, sent a suicide bomber to one of our nation’s annual celebrations. The bomber detonated his bomb in the middle of a crowd killing whole families! Those killings caused a lot of pain to our nation and as a response to those attacks security forces eliminated the heads of Righteous Blessing. As a result the group was tagged as of Minor Risk. So we thought at least! Only four days have passed since Abad, the leader of that group, sent a message to our government saying that if we do not build shrines for their religion in our country they would start killing again. We do not negotiate with terrorists! After our denial the group assaulted tourist resort Prepaid Paradise, executed most of its residents and have some held as hostages. Now they demand their shrines while threatening to execute the rest of the civilians. Enough! Assault squad Guided Bullets has been sent to rescue the civilians and kill Abad. The last leader of a group that was considered as minor.. 2.] Important details: a)In SP you should be the THE GROUP LEADER of the GUIDED BULLETS team. b)Due to mission needs we have BUILT a whole resort. c)Patrols, unit placements and hostage positions are ALL random. d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in your team. Those units should exist for your convenience. e)This mission has medium replayability due to the heavy randomization mentioned above. f)Due to the Arma pathfinding system it is tough to order the hostages out of the buidlings. Tough but possible. BI ... why? g)Respawn:Instant 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Serious combat abilities and basic organizing skills. 3.2]Technical: Arma 3 Apex, CBA, ASR AI3 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: None 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

  8. Panochori Cleanup Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) Panochori. Full of traps. Full of radio jammers. Jammers that cause casualties. Jammers that need to be destroyed. Will you be the ones to destroy them? 1.] Hypothesis: On the island of Altis there is a village called Panochori. Panochori is an abandoned place which a small number of enemy troops use as a radio jammer base. They use advanced tech so as to block our communications in specific areas and subsequently cause huge problems to our troops. So, guess which our next stop is going to be! As an assault squad and a sniper team we are to head towards Panochori and destroy the enemy's high tech radio jammers. Now what you should know is that the place is most likely filled with mines and traps so be careful at all times, if you are planning on returning back alive. 2.] Important details: a)In MP when 3 players take part in the mission, 1 of you needs to be the LEADER of the SNIPER TEAM, one of you should be the LEADER of the ASSAULT SQUAD and the third person should be the EXPLOSIVE SPECIALIST. b)You should FOLLOW the TASKS that are given to you. Going solo elsewhere might ruin the mission. c)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in ANY team.

  10. Eco Terrorists Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) Eco-friendly organizations want to attack Governor Reynold's motorcade! Will you be able to deliver him safely to Altis main airport or will he end up being executed? 1.] Hypothesis: Tanoa is an island where many eco-friendly organizations operate. These organizations claim that Tanoa should not be harassed by human interventions because a lot of rare plant and animal species live there. That is why they have convinced prior governments to not let Tanoa locals use the lands for farming or fishing and to ban all non renewable energy sources. As a result most locals have no source of income and are therefore extremely poor. Now Tanoa has a new Governor named Mr. Reynolds. Reynolds decided to stop the aforementioned bans and to let the locals prosper as long as some basic limits are kept. The eco-organizations however disagree and now want to assassinate the governor! You see due to his policies there will be no more funding for them and the super expensive eco-products will stop being sold. Today Reynolds will be visiting the governor of Altis to discuss how to get rid of the so called eco-friendly organizations. You, as a PMC, will be responsible for his safety. You are to escort him to the airport where he will get in a chopper so as to be transferred to the meeting pos. 2.] Important details: a)Playing in SP will be hard but if you do play in SP you will have to be THE GROUP LEADER of the vehicle that will be IN THE MIDDLE of the motorcade. You will find which slot that is at the start of the mission. b)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. c)The motorcade should remain in formation. The one vehicle should be behind the other and at logical speeds. Driving too fast can result in accidents, such as missing a turn, turning upside down and exploding. Not that we would know while testing d)You should NOT DISABLE AI units that are in your team. Those units should exist for your convenience. e)Respawn:Instant 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Serious combat abilities and basic organizing skills. 3.2]Technical: Arma 3 Apex, CBA, ASR AI3 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: One unit refuses to follow waypoints while playing in a server.

  12. Debatable Bravery Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) He saved hundreds but now he cannot save himself! Will you save him? 1.] Hypothesis: War is raging in the Mediterranean! Greek and NATO forces are battling CSAT forces. One of the battlefields? The island of Altis! Altis is where hostile Assault Force Viper conducts war crime operations. A few hours ago they even tried to ambush a convoy carrying locals to the hospital of Kavala! They were families in need of medical assistance. Gladly we found out about their plans and although the harsh weather conditions we immediately dispatched Jet Squadron Zeus to intercept them. Zeus managed to not only intercept Viper but they even caused heavy casualties to them! One of their Jets however was hit by an AA missile and the pilot had to eject North of Altis. So now we have to find and rescue that pilot. While we do so hostile troops are also trying to find and kill him. Why? Because he is not just a pilot. He is Greeces Minister of Defense! Once he heard that Zeus Squadron was missing a pilot, due to him being really sick, he jumped in the plane and went with! Losing such a person would be a disaster since he is someone who can greatly increase the troops moral and he is even the guy who organized and coordinated the retaking of Altis. So he might have saved hundreds of families but will he die, the whole Altis invasion might be at risk! 2.] Important details: a)To play in SP you have to be the GROUP LEADER of the SLING-LOAD chopper team. b)This mission has high replayability. The Jet Pilot's location along with all units' patrols are random. c)To control the ships you have to be the CAPTAIN of the wanted ship. d)In the airport the choppers can get repaired, rearmed and refueled. e)Playing in SP will be really hard so you can use the SP Friendly action located on a laptop at the start of the mission. f)In SP additional rescue teams will search and notify if they find the pilot but some are only available in MP. g)Respawn: Instant although there is no vehicle respawn 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Advanced chopper piloting and organizing abilities. 3.2]Technical: a)Arma 3 Apex b)Greek Navy - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=32207 c)CBA - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 d)ASR AI3 - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24080 4.]Bugs: 4.1]Minor: None 4.2]Serious: None 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

Fixed glitch where the naval units would report the finding of the Jet Pilot again if it had already been found by the airforce units. Fixed glitch where the airforce units would report the finding of the Jet Pilot again if it had already been found by the naval units.

  14. Brave Desperation Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) Our exhausted forces are about to be crushed by enemy artillery! You are their only hope. Wil you save them or will our forces perish? 1.] Hypothesis: Our Altis invasion was a disaster! Most of our men are dead or heavily injured and now artillery units are preparing to bomb our last remaining bases. In these bases we have our injured but the enemy does not care! Is there a way out? Well, Aircraft Carrier Barnes has been sent to evacuate us but it cannot arrive in time. If we do not destroy the aforementioned artillery, we will all die. So is this the end? NO! Out of the rubble a 4 man team has appeared! A team that will try to breach the enemy lines and to destroy the artillery units that are about to vaporize us before it is too late. With what? With explosives they will hopefully find in one of our secret ammo stashes. So are our forces saved? It depends on you... 2.] Important details: a)Playing in SP will be hard but if you do play in SP you will have to be THE GROUP LEADER of the ASSAULT SQUAD. b)This mission has low replayability. Once and if you manage to complete the mission successfully you might never play it again. c)When being transferred to the needed location you should board the vehicle as PASSENGERS and not change seats.

  17. Rescuing_The_Hunted Brought to you by John Kalo and zigTtzag(zTt) Never again have we felt so intense in an Arma 3 mission. The adrenaline was pumping and the ingame chat would just not stop! 1.] Hypothesis: One of our spies has been arrested by OPFOR forces and he has been tortured to reveal highly classified info. The spy has stayed loyal to his country and no matter his torment he has yet to reveal a thing. Now that particular spy has managed to untie himself and construct some knife like objects.

Its all up to you.. 2.] Important details: a)Respawn:Instant although the Expert edition has no respawn b)This mission has high replayability. The player that will be in the position of the spy will be spawned randomly in 4 different locations. Restarting the mission will mean the spy will spawn elsewhere c)Team work between the spy and the chopper team is ESSENTIAL in order to complete this mission successfully d)The spy should be a good player that does not know the map by heart and he should not use the chat unless he finds a radio e)The EXPERT edition has more patrols and a few more surprises but beware ... it can be really hard f)Read the briefing 3.]Requirements: 3.1]Players' skills: Advanced combat and stealth abilities and a good pilot 3.2]Technical: a)Arma 3 Apex b)CBA - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767 c)ASR AI3 - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=24080 4.]Bugs: We have tested this mission many times and there are no bugs 5.]Installation: Just copy the pbo to your Arma 3 directory.

    Arma 3 Photography : Questions and Comments

    Hey guys, got an issue will keep it short. So after having uploaded our missions on armaholic, the BI forums and our website we have decided to also upload them on steam. Gradually since they are a lot but we will! The problem: We have not got enough pictures so as to upload them on steam 😕 Kind request: So if anybody is willing to take some pictures from our missions it would be awesome! Sadly we have no time, exams!!!, for that while new missions are also in development. Credits: Any pictures you provide shall have your forum or steam, your choice, name on the buttom right. In total we are talking about a few thousands of mission downloads and hopefully the same will happen on steam. Since all missions had to be updated due to an ASR AI3 update our website alone has got all new links. The BI forums are harder to change but they will be changed asap. Anybody willing to help can pick whichever mission you like from: For Stratis Missions (hope you choose the one with the sharks: https://greekeditor.weebly.com/stratis.html For Altis Missions: https://greekeditor.weebly.com/altis.html For Malden Misisons: https://greekeditor.weebly.com/malden.html @stburr91 Would choose the second one since it is a desert sort of map. And a few pics from missions: Explosive Drones, Defending History and Prepaid Nightmare
  19. When you say uses the arsenal you mean to take something specific from it? Because as far as I am aware there is no open the arsenal condition. But there is a condition to check if a player has a specific item. To make things more simple however you can use the: nameOfPlayer distance nameOfAmmobox <5; with a sleep 5 or 10. Since the player will use the ammo-box once he approaches the method should work.
  20. Thanks for the tip! If a chopper is in play then an invisible helper object will do the trick. Although I never had such an issue to be honest. Most likely because chopper landing waypoints are connected to other helipads Just like to have everything clear when designing any sort of mission. Taking a weeks break for example and coming back, I prefer knowing where the respawn location is and not start searching for the coords. That is also the case with waypoints and such.
  21. And if you have already got a marker, where respawning takes place, there might be a simple solution, since you want it to be trigger bassed. Just add in the activation field of the trigger: "marker_where_you_respawn" setmarkerpos getpos spawn_helper; Where spawn_helper is an object located at the new desired spawn location. An invisible helipad for example.

    Waypoint Follow

    Seems like it is a buggy waypoint: Maybe this can help: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/doFollow
  23. I got a little bit confused so I will just describe how the set trigger activation line works. You place a unit. You place a move waypoint right next to the unit. You place another Search and Destroy waypoint. You create a trigger. You place whatever condition you like. You use the set trigger activation line to connect the trigger to the move waypoint. Done! What will happen is that the Search and Destroy waypoint will start once the condition of the trigger is met.
  24. Maybe you already know this but there is a thing with waypoints. Let us say we have waypoint 1 and 2. The condition you place in waypoint 1 will be the condition so as for waypoint 2 to be activated. Waypoint 1 will already have been activated. So maybe you will need to place an extra move waypoint next to the appropriate unit and place your condition code there. ^^ That is for the set trigger activation line which is the one I always use. Judging from below posts it works how you want it. Sorry for that. ^^ And if your code does not work you can sync the trigger directly to the waypoint. The set trigger activation line. That should work

    Using planes in mission editor

    TOH was indeed amazing! I had bought two copies and made my friends buy a few more. And as you also mentioned clicking the buttons in the cockpit is really nice. In TOH we could. In Arma we cannot 😕 Yep, the simulation is nice but not even like TOH let alone DCS. There I remember things that do not exist in Arma. In TOH for example lifting off without using pedals was a no go. In Arma it is possible. But even yet autorotating with a squad on board is really nice.There must be communities of pilots online. I only play with friends since I want to enjoy Arma and not get in a cowardish online fight for getting shot by a baragge of AA missiles. Easy to say anything when being thousands miles away... Searching however should reveal some nice pilot community
