  1. Does the Arma 3 Game engine support multiple different "sea" levels. For example, does it support a lake and river that is above the sea level?
  2. Can someone help me with this. I'm Kinda new to the whole sound mod but am interested, I have no idea but gotten this far and im just Confused on how to proceed from this point on how i can even get sound through. if someone could help me Thank you. the export for the file is .wss mono out of a pcm 16bit mono wave file. the script is in a config.cpp file. class CfgPatches { class mx { units[]={}; weapons[]={}; requiredVersion=0.1; requiredAddons[]= { "A3_Data_F", "A3_Sounds_F", "A3_Weapons_F" }; version="1"; author="cheif22"; }; }; class CfgSoundShaders { class MX_Closure_SoundShader { samples[]= { { "\mx\shots\closure1", 1 }, { "\mx\shots\closure2", 1 } }; volume=0.17782794; range=5; }; class MX_closeShot_SoundShader { samples[]= { { "\mx\shot\closeshot1", 1 }, { "\mx\shot\closeshot2", 1 }, { "\mx\shot\closeshot3", 1 } }; volume=1; range=50; rangeCurve="closeShotCurve"; }; class MX_midShot_SoundShader { samples[]= { { "\mx\shot\midshot1", 1 }, { "\mx\shot\midshot2", 1 }, { "\mx\shot\midshot3", 1 } }; volume=0.79432821; range=1800; rangeCurve[]= { {0,0.2}, {50,1}, {300,0}, {1800,0} }; }; class MX_distShot_SoundShader { samples[]= { { "\mx\shot\distshot1", 1 }, { "\mx\shot\distshot3", 1 }, { "\mx\shot\distshot3", 1 } }; volume=1; range=1800; rangeCurve[]= { {0,0}, {50,0}, {300,1}, {1800,1} }; }; };
  3. Hi, I'm just trying to make a sound mod test thingy but I have no clue how to do the correct format for a sound. such as does it need to be mono, what export of wav file, is there any special way to do it. My one friend said the script works perfectly with his own audio but won't share the samples since I have my own. So if someone could answer how I can format a sound file correctly would be helpful. Current export that works on most things but not working on a closure or something of that area is a WAV (Microsoft) signed 16-bit PCM with audacity then converting to .wss with arma tools. The sounds seems to work on everything but not when i fire a weapon. If any Bohemia or community members willing to share to help1, thanks.
  4. I've heard before that you can edit a config to allow more flashlights to be visible at once. As standing in a group of 32 units, only a small handful have flashlights visible. Moving around changes which of these are active. My question is, where is the config and what do I edit to allow more lights/flashlights to be visible. I've searched this extensively and only found different flashlight related questions. Edit: The max I can seem to get on the default setting is 7 units flashlights, or 6 when I turn on my own. Which has always ruined the immersion in dark or night time missions I've made for myself.
  5. As the title says, I have always been getting this recurring thought: It seems very likely that the Devs will be making a continuation of the story, as like before in ArmA 2: Operation Arrowhead. Usually, with every official map comes an epic saga. ;) What do you guys think? Is the Arma community geared up for another continuation of the campaign?
  6. Hey guys, quick question (Which maybe useful for others to read). What are some ways I can debug my MP code without having to go actually online and/or pay for a dedicated server? (I also noticed Here that the content has disappeared, how come?!?) Also, I was not able to join my own dedicated server as I keep on getting kicked. So since my PC is beastly, I launched Arma 3 two times with different roles: 1st Arma 3: Hosted a server WITHOUT arma3server.exe. 2nd Arma 3: Joined the server as the client. Is this another way of testing client-side for multiplayer scripting? Thanks, :ok: Rawner135

    ARMA LAN w/ Casual friends

    I'm in the awkward situation of being a fan of ARMA, but having friends who aren't into it enough to buy it. I went to great lengths to work up some missions in ARMA 2 Free, but it's pretty limited and I have to do all the work (since all the custom missions people make are for the full game). I could go on, but whining isn't the point of this post. The idea occurred to me, "Wouldn't it be great if BIS released a limited multiplayer-client-only version of ARMA III so that I could host LANs without my friends needing to make a big investment?" In a sense it would be a bit like F2P, giving people who do pay more people to play with, and allowing more people to see what they're missing without needing to pay up front. Anyone else think this is a fine idea? (or have other options for me and my LAN dreams?)
  8. Backstory (will be expanded): Year 2018: After 3 years of economical crisis, with the Ruble at its historical minimum, riots start spreading throughout the whole Russian Federation. Citizens start uprising demanding better economic conditions and extremists groups are seen as the only viable alternative to accomplish a brighter future. The protest quickly turn deadly, with the security forces getting more and more violent. Year 2020: Terrorist group named "Bering Star", in an attempt to take advantage of the civil unrest, attacks a classified biological warfare facility in ÄŒukotka, stealing many biological agents. Russian Federation government keeps this attack hidden, fearing a further increase of the riots violence. August 3rd, 2023: Bering Star hits, releasing an artificial virus in Moscow and St. Petersburg. Government is weakened after years of unrest, and the emergency response is not effective enough. During the following months, the virus spreads in Europe and Asia, with some cases in the USA. While the International Community joins forces to develop a vaccine, it gets clear that the rate of infection is extremely high. March, 2024: 9 months after patient zero, the infection is now spread worldwide. There is no known cure yet. April, 2030: 7 years later, an estimate of 90% of the global population was infected with peaks of 95% in the whole Russian sub-continent. Only 0.04% of survival chance. Big areas in the United States become unhabited, including the San Juan Islands in the Puget Sound.

  9. Hi there, I have an opportunity to take a fresh look at the Expansions menu (Configure > Expansions). The purpose of the menu was to list mods from various locations such as the -mod parameter, registry path and auto-included mods from the player's Documents & Settings folder, and to allow the player to enable / disable mods and adjust the load order. The current goal is shifting to provide easy orientation and additional details about used official (DLC) and community mods. After the initial design, it occurred to me that mod management might not be a necessary part of this. One of the options is therefore to remove the functionality to manage mods, specifically the ability to adjust the load order (Up and Down buttons) and the Enable / Disable mod button. This would mean the removal of functionality some of you might be using, so I came here to ask you what you think about it and to discuss the matter. Additional info: Launching the game with -mod overrides and disables the management buttons in the Expansions menu anyway. Managing mods here requires an additional restart. The official Launcher with local mods support and custom community launchers are handling mod management more comfortably. Launchers do not require an additional restart. Changes made in the menu do not carry over to launchers. Syncing the game state between launcher states could be complicated with various presets in mind. Let me ask you in a brief and structured way how are you using the Expansions menu: [A very short] Survey Thank you :)
