  1. If a custom GUI is opened when player is driver of an air vehicle with engine on, the vehicle behaves as though the landing auto-pilot (or some other phantom) has taken control. After researching the issue for some time now I have found exactly zero information about it. It's not too bad while flying but it's game breaking on the ground. I tried using, playerJET action ["cancelLand", playerJET]; each time the menu opens but that's doesn't seem to do much or anything. There was a forum topic I can't find again where GOM suggested the above as a EachFrame EH but that seems heavy for a function that should just completely go away. Where does this controller exist and how can it be modified? Help me exorcise this phantom pilot! Testing... Test module: drive link
  2. I want to get into making SP Campaigns but I'm pretty incompetent when it comes to scripting. I'm looking for a project with people who are willing to teach me the basics so I can get some experience.
  3. Plant and harvest your health plants. Due to request of script author . Link was removed.
  4. this script relieves all playable units, saves them to a variable and sorts by faction (cfgfactionclass >>displayName). my question is about navigating configfiles, most notably navigating and filtering configs. example say you want to filter out all of the unwanted "man" units like "range master", and "survivor" est. is there a more logical approach to this instead of saying is _unit in [array]? also saving units to variables to be used later. my approach looks weird anybody with the knowhow to guide me in the right direction _cfg = "getnumber( _x >> 'scope' ) isEqualTo 2" configClasses (configFile >> "Cfgvehicles"); for "_i" from 0 to ((count _cfg)-1) do { if (isClass ((_cfg select _i) )) then { _cfgNam = configName (_cfg select _i); _getside = getnumber (configfile >> "Cfgvehicles" >> _cfgNam>> "side"); _getfaction = gettext (configfile >> "Cfgvehicles" >> _cfgNam >> "faction"); _getfac = gettext (configfile >> "cfgfactionclasses" >> _getfaction>> "displayName"); _getSolClas = gettext (configfile >> "Cfgvehicles" >> _cfgNam>> "displayName"); _getvehcat = gettext (configfile >> "Cfgvehicles" >> _cfgNam>> "editorSubcategory"); hint str _getvehcat; if !(_getSolClas in ["Crewman","Officer","Competitor","Pilot","Helicopter Crew","UAV Operator","Survivor","Rifleman (Unarmed)","Assault Diver","Diver Team Leader","Diver Explosive Specialist"]) then { switch _getvehcat do { case ("EdSubcat_Personnel"): {call compile format["missionNamespace setvariable ['man_%1', (missionNamespace getVariable ['man_%1',[]]) + [_cfgNam]];", toupper _getfac];}; case ("EdSubcat_Cars"): {call compile format["missionNamespace setvariable ['car_%1', (missionNamespace getVariable ['car_%1',[]]) + [_cfgNam]];", toupper _getfac];}; case ("EdSubcat_APCs"): {call compile format["missionNamespace setvariable ['apc_%1', (missionNamespace getVariable ['apc_%1',[]]) + [_cfgNam]];", toupper _getfac];}; case ("EdSubcat_Tanks"): {call compile format["missionNamespace setvariable ['tank_%1', (missionNamespace getVariable ['tank_%1',[]]) + [_cfgNam]];", toupper _getfac];};}; }; };}; missionNamespace getVariable "man_NATO";
  5. Yes I know this post has been made before and there’s countless different ways to resolve this but I’m attempting using a largely different formula with no variable names. Without using a script or external file I’ve created signs with a init to spawn aircraft on to a trigger using the code [this, “Deploy A-10A”, ”\A3\Air_F_Jets\Plane_Fighter_01\Data\UI\Fighter01_icon_ca.paa”, “\A3\Air_F_Jets\Plane_Fighter_01\Data\UI\Fighter01_icon_ca.paa”, ”player distance _target < 6”, ”player distance _target < 6”, { }, { }, {createVehicle [“rhs_a10”, getPos aircraftpad, [ ], 0, “NONE”] setDir 270}, { }, [[0,0,0]], 3, 0, false, false ] remoteExec [“BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd”, 0, this]; the code here works works beautifully and creates the vehicle desired and is copied and pasted on to different signs with different vehicles inserted instead and scrolling on the sign prompts a option to spawn the vehicle on the trigger after holding space for 3 seconds now I’m trying to make a sign that uses the same code above but in the command to run clears the objects inside of it being anything currently blocking the pad preventing a new vehicle to be spawned on the trigger. I’ve tried almost everything but when it does let me save it in Arma with no errors it doesn’t work or the code provided no longer works for example I’ve done. [this, “Clear Pad”, ” “, ” “, ”player distance _target < 6”, ”player distance _target < 6”, { }, { }, {{deleteVehicle _x} forEach nearestObjects [[aircraftpad], ["all"], 5]}, { }, [[0,0,0]], 3, 0, false, false ] remoteExec [“BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd”, 0, this]; This ended up not removing the vehicle from the pad, I’ve been working on this with google for the past two days so figured I’d ask you brilliant people.
  6. Hello: With this small script, activated by trigger, a helicopter with its crew must appear on the ground, on a certain 3D position. When the script is activated, the helicopter itself is generated, but static and at a certain height, not perched on the ground. If the code indicates that the height must be 0 (_height = 0;), why does not it work? What am I doing wrong? Please, can you help me? Thank you. ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// _markerstr = createMarker ["MI8_C1", [9908.08,19424.5]]; _markerstr setMarkerShape "ICON"; _markerstr setMarkerType "hd_dot"; _height = 0; _pos = getMarkerPos "MI8_C1"; _MI8_C1 = [ [_pos select 0, _pos select 1, _height], EAST, ["CUP_O_Mi8_RU"],[],[],[],[],[],270] call BIS_fnc_spawnGroup; //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
  7. Hey all, I have a question I haven't managed to find a solution for... Is there a way to get the aiming deadzone somehow via script? If not, do any of you guys have any idea how I could "approximate" it, or an alternative way to get the "offset" which the gun has relative to the unit's (mostly interested in players, not AI though) looking direction (the "hard thing for me here is to exclude a unit's looking direction). Thanks in advance.
  8. I use this to add an IFF light to units, IRLight= "NVG_TargetC" createVehicle [0,0,0]; _unit removeMagazine "B_IR_Grenade"; IRLight attachTo [_unit, [0,-0.03,0.07], "LeftShoulder"]; Which is great because removeMagazine deletes the IR light object (the grenade) but not the light effect. I also use, light = "Land_PortableLight_single_F" createVehicle [0,0,0]; light attachTo [cockpit, [0,2,-1.35], "vez"]; To create a cabin light for vehicles. This is a hilarious solution though because it's like duct-taping a construction lamp to the vehicle. How can I delete the world model for the lamp but leave the light source, like removeMagazine does for the IR grenade? note: I know how to make lots of different kinds of lights but only lights attached to models seem to be able to keep up with attachTo on a vehicle (especially a jet). This is the whole block, cockpit = playerJET; CPlight = "Land_PortableLight_single_F" createVehicle [0,0,0]; CPlight attachTo [cockpit, [0,2,-1.35], "vez"]; addMissionEventHandler ["Draw3D", { CPlight setVectorDirAndUp [ (cockpit selectionPosition "pohon") vectorFromTo (cockpit selectionPosition "vez"),[0,0,0] ];
  9. The script I'm working on calls for random sqf selection. I found this, here, and I want to make sure I understand the function. Please advise if my comments to the script are correct. _script = [1,3] call BIS_fnc_randomInt; //defines a range for cases, actually says 1-3 or 1, 2, 3. Selects one randomly. switch (_script) do { // -- I think it says if "_script" is defined, do case 1 : { [] execVM "1.sqf"; }; //put script names here case 2 : { [] execVM "2.sqf"; }; case 3 : { [] execVM "3.sqf"; }; }; SwitchDo So I could, EMERGENCY = [1,3] call BIS_fnc_randomInt; switch (EMERGENCY) do { case 1 : { [] execVM "searchZONE.sqf"; }; case 2: { [] execVM "searchZONE2.sqf"; }; case 3 : { [] execVM "noEMERG.sqf"; }; }; Can I increase the probability of a script by using it for multiple cases? Or would I use something like selectRandomWeighted?
  10. I want to make a ring course to fly through. The ring course will be defined by several markers (ringMARK1_1) and the ring itself has a trigger attached. Each time a ring is cleared I want it to snap to the next position. There is only one ring which moves from marker to marker. ringCHALLENGE.sqf ringChallenge = [] spawn { waitUntil { ring1==1 }; hint "Ring Challenge Activated"; currentRING= [ringMARK1_1,ringMARK1_2,ringMARK1_3] select 0; sleep 1; ["task1",[currentRING,true]] call BIS_fnc_taskSetDestination; ringGOAL setpos (getpos currentRING); }; What's the best way to update the ring position in a sequence? Can "select 0;" in the array be called something like "select next"? Is it better to use IF/WAIT for the next ring? Am I starting this all wrong?
  11. I propose a community project for this thread, BAD LUCK. Write a script snippet that applies a negative effect on the player character whenever the variable Badluck==1. Example Engine overheat EngineStallh = [] spawn { waitUntil { sleep 0.5; Badluck==1 && (getPos xPLANE) select 2 > 300 && speed xPLANE > 400 }; xPLANE engineON false; vehicle player setHit ["motor", 1]; sleep 40; hint "Try the engine again"; vehicle player setHit ["motor", 0]; sleep 4; hint "": }; It could be anything. A fog cloud suddenly obscuring a target, equipment lost to a hole in a sack or weapon jams. Anything that makes the player hiss and say, "Damn-it! Bad luck!". Submit your script snippets below and let's see what kind of mean, gnarly challenges we can come up with. It would be hilarious to spawn a tank on the player's head but not very useful in a real mission. Try to keep it useful-- but still clever and fair. One more example, //naked player if (Badluck==1 && getdammage player > 0) then { hint "Your uniform is tattered and fell off"; removeUniform player; sleep 120; player addUniform "U_C_poloshirt_salmon"; hint "You found some common clothes"; sleep 4; hint ""; };
  12. Can I use one Task Marker and move it around like I do with triggers and WP? I'm able to create a Task Marker in position but I can't make it move to the next position. It would be much easier to just move the uncompleted task around (in my usage case) than it would be to complete/create new each time it moves. I don't want there to be a hundred completed tasks by the end of the scenario. This is how I create the Marker, [true,["task1"],["Approach Vector","Approach","Plane"],objNull,1,3,true] call BIS_fnc_taskCreate; ["task1","ASSIGNED"] call BIS_fnc_taskSetState; ["task1",[approachAP1,true]] call BIS_fnc_taskSetDestination; task1 call BIS_fnc_taskSetCurrent; running the same script again with a new destination doesn't work. How do I move an active Task around?

  14. Does anyone know how to add a scroll wheel option (vanilla action menu) to an ace arsenal so that the ace interaction menu is not needed to open it while still being the ace arsenal interface. Help appreciated.
  15. so I'm relatively new to Dialog Scripts in Arma 3 but what I'm trying to do is if the player selects an item in the Listbox. The item will then display a picture on the right and side depending on what item I select in the list box I've made sure my images can be linked to the display as entering them into the ctrlSetText works, but I can't figure out how I can go about making it display the image depending on what item I have selected. At first, I thought of just using if statements but I saw problems with it and an if statement for each item seems a bit of a workaround. so I decided to use Switch {} do and a case for each image as the _index gets a number that I assumed would work if I placed them into different cases like this. switch {_itemNumber} do // gets value { case (0): {ctrlSetText [1200, "images\1.paa"]}; // displays first item image case (1): {ctrlSetText [1200, "images\2.paa"]}; // displays second item image default {ctrlSetText [1200, ""]}; // if no item is selected displays nothing }; but I couldn't get it to display even though when I print it using the HINT command it prints the item selected via a number here is the full script: recipes.sqf disableserialization; _recipeArray = ["Food Materials", "Raw Materials"]; // array of items in list _ctrl = (findDisplay 3663) displayCtrl 1500; // finds dialog { _ctrl lbAdd _x; } forEach _recipeArray; // adds the _recipe array to list box while {!isNull (findDisplay 3663);} do // only loops when the display is open { sleep 1; _index = lbCurSel 1500; // gets _index value from selected item hint str (_index); // prints selection value for testing switch {_index} do // gets the _index value { case (0): {ctrlSetText [1200, "images\1.paa"]}; // displays first item image case (1): {ctrlSetText [1200, "images\2.paa"]}; // displays second item image default {ctrlSetText [1200, ""]}; // if no item is selected displays nothing }; }; if anyone could help I would be grateful.
  16. Hey,i am new to scripting and changing configs and this is my first try at it.I am trying to add a target lead indicator,like the ones you see in Cheetah and Tigris to other vehicles with electronic turret optics.Now i digged in through CfgWeapons info and saw that i just had to change the value for "ballisticscomputer" in CfgWeapons.But the problem is,......where is the location of CfgWeapons,under what pbo does it exist? I went and opened the config.bin of Prowler and there is nothing called CfgWeapons there either. The "ballisticscomputer" value that i want to change should be under "HMG_127_LSV_01",but can't find the location of it
  17. My two current projects contain dozens of script references from this forum all in one place with a script description text to find what you're looking for. JET TOYS SWO Mission Control DEMO If you're an experienced script writer you probably won't learn much from the references. However you're welcome to make suggestions for improvement. Keep in mind the theme of making simple scripts that are accessible to new users and not fellow computer science majors. This forum page is WIP and will expand as the above projects progress.
  18. May I have some help to compile this script, if (Plight == 0) then { playSound ["click", true]; cockpit = playerJET; CPlight = "#lightpoint" createVehicle [0,0,0]; CPlight setLightBrightness 0.1; CPLight setLightAmbient [0.0, 1.0, 0.0]; CPlight setLightColor [0.0, 1.0, 0.0]; CPlight attachTo [cockpit, [0,5,-0.5], "vez"]; addMissionEventHandler ["Draw3D", { CPlight setVectorDirAndUp [ (cockpit selectionPosition "pohon") vectorFromTo (cockpit selectionPosition "otochlaven"), [0,0,1]; Plight=1; ]; }]; } else { deletevehicle CPlight; Plight=0; }; It reports "Missing ]" but I don't know where it is. Before the "else", likely. Thanks!

  20. Hello, I am trying to figure out how to keep an AI controlled SUV to sit still until a specific AI unit enters that vehicle. So far I haven't gotten it to work, nor could I find anything to help online with something this specific. Hopefully someone has the solution. Thanks
  21. Hello, I have made a mission using a script made by an Armaholic profile called ESO. It simply spawns units when Player/Player's(MP) are in its desired distance. BUT. I wunder if it is somehow possible to make the Players that are in Plane or Helicopter not be able to activate ESO script. Other words that they can fly inside a marker with ESO without any units spawning. Could any1 help me out on this? Would be really helpfull! 🙂 Regards Sorry for bad English.
  22. Hello there, as the title already states my script is missing a semicolon but my 2 friends couldn't figure out where it was missing and neither could I. The following is the code: run = true; task_1 = player createSimpleTask ["Kill Bob"]; task_1 setSimpleTaskDescription ["Kill Bob that stupid prick","Kill Bob"]; task_1 setSimpleTaskDestination (getPos bob); task_1 setSimpleTaskType "attack"; player setCurrentTask task_1; while (run){ if (alive bob) then{ hint "Bob is dead"; task_1 setTaskState "Succeeded"; run = false; }; }; The error says it missing in the same line in which I start my while loop. Quick sidenote this script is just something I created to learn to script for missions. I also have another question because I want to be able to execute this script from my main script how do I do that because I couldn't get execVM to work and how can I check within the main script wether task_1 is finished and then start task_2? Thanks for your help Cheers, Nope.X
  23. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - EDIT: Solution here. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Hi all, I've been spending a while trying to figure out the proper method to attach a vest to a dog and correctly move it with the animations. Creation of dog and initial AttachTo are working fine, but I'm having trouble matching the direction of the vest to the dog's position. This is what I have been trying to work with so far, but it does not match correctly: _dog = dogDmy; _vest = "Vest_V_HarnessO_gry" createVehicle [0,0,0]; _vest attachTo [_dog,[0,-0.4,-0.54],"spine2"]; _n=[_dog,_vest] spawn { _dog = _this select 0; _vest = _this select 1; while {_vest in (attachedObjects _dog)} do { _vest setVectorDirAndUp [(_dog selectionPosition "spine2") vectorFromTo (_dog selectionPosition "hips"),[0.01,0.01,-0.99]]; sleep .1; }; }; There are similarities between this and a couple other scripts people have written, but they don't seem to work entirely for a dog. https://forums.bohemia.net/forums/topic/189737-attachto-trying-to-attch-a-lamp-on-torret/ http://killzonekid.com/arma-scripting-tutorials-uav-r2t-and-pip/ At the minute I am using While instead of a Draw3D or EachFrame EH to avoid unnecessary use of resources. Dog creation for testing: Thank you in advance!
  24. Hello! I get straigt to the point: I am creating a mission in 3Eden and I have stumbled on an holdback. I have used the ALIVE modules to make civilians spawn on the map. (Standard ALIVE Civilian spawn) And if I use Allow interact in the module "Civilian Population" We can interact with them in-game to detain, tell go away and so on... But I wish to have this on the ACE interaction menu instead. How do I make this? I belive this is done tru scripting. Regards!!!
  25. Hey all, I am quite new to scripting and have been looking into eventHandlers a bit lately. I stumbled across the scriptedEventHandlers. I am not sure I really understand the concept of a scipted eventHandler against a "normal" eventHandler. So, what exactly is the difference between those two? I mean, that in my understanding (which I believe to be incomplete) both "kinds" of eventHandlers are called when a specific event is happened and if this is the case what is the difference then? 😕 So, the question I am posing here is quite broad, I know, but if there's any good text I could have a look at somewhere online, or a video or some educational material I would really like to have a look. Otherwise if anyone here could throw some clarifications (without having to spend too much time as to write down a full guide on eventHandlers) they would be extremely welcome. Thanks, Achilles.
