  1. Hello. For the past hour or so I've tried to link an addaction to another addaction in the init field of a data terminal. Here's my notes for that init section and the script. //Add an action to a data terminal to open it //When that action is activated by a player, it will add another action //When that second action is activated, it will run an .sqf file that //consists of the nopop variable this addAction ["Startup Terminal", {[KillhouseControl,1] call BIS_fnc_dataTerminalAnimate; this addAction ["Start Killhouse", targetup.sqf}]]; this addAction ["Shutdown Terminal", {[KillhouseControl,0] call BIS_fnc_dataTerminalAnimate;}]; //To-do: Remove action First of all, is there anything I'm doing wrong? Second of all, is there a way to do this?
  2. Script Example (which I use in my mission): [ Truck, "<t color='#58D68D'>Enganchar UH60</t>", "\a3\ui_f\data\IGUI\Cfg\holdactions\holdAction_loaddevice_ca.paa", "\a3\ui_f\data\IGUI\Cfg\holdactions\holdAction_loaddevice_ca.paa", "(_this distance _target < 3) && (Truck_Bar distance Heli_1 < 10)", "(_Caller distance _target < 3) && (Truck_Bar distance Heli_1 < 10)", {}, {}, { null = ["Scripts\Interacciones\Remolcador\Soltar_Heli_1.sqf","BIS_fnc_execVM",false,false] spawn BIS_fnc_MP; [Truck,_actionId] call BIS_fnc_holdActionRemove; }, {}, [], 5, 6, true, false ] remoteExec ["BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd", 0, Truck]; ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ When I put this Script in my Init.sqf file, one appears every time a player joins my dedicated server. Is there a way to fix that? the problem is where do I put my script? or is it a typical Arma 3 problem?
  3. Hey there, I'm trying to get an object to provide a whitelisted player with the option to purchase ammunition once in close proximity. So far, I've written the following into the object's init: if (getPlayerUID player in _UIDList) then { this addAction ["Buy STANAG mag $100","purchasestanag.sqf"]}; The mentioned _UIDList simply reads as follows under init.sqf: _UIDList=["76561198090900291"]; Is there something crucial I'm forgetting to include? I'm very fresh to coding, so do excuse my ignorance. Any pointers are much appreciated.

Last content update: 5/27/2018 added GUI tutorial for how to make a weapon selector using cfgWeapon Last content update: 5/24/2018 added sector control tutorial Last content update: 5/21/2018 This is my arma 3 scripting tutorial series which is aimed to help both people getting into making their own scripts with fairly detailed simple tutorials as well as for the intermediate person looking to create their own features for their missions. The plans for this series is to almost fully cover everything behind the arma 3 missions that people play on a daily basis and have enough content provided in the videos where people can go off and make their own vision for their mission with the knowledge gained. Most of these videos are made on the fly at 1AM-4AM without any pretesting which should give someone the idea of what goes into finding syntax errors and narrowing down a bug that's causing your feature to not function properly. It is also an excuse for you to cut me some slack if you see mistakes :) . A lot of these tutorials are made with multiplayer in mind since I think most people want to play their missions online with their friends(which is why publicVariable has been utilized so much so new people can get a good grasp on the power those commands have). New videos are added to the playlist almost every day so if your stuck with something, maybe it has been covered in a video. If you have any requests on what you would like to see made then please suggest it here. topics covered so far Scripting tutorial playlist Database tutorials with INIDBI2 playlist GUI/Dialog tutorials playlist
  5. Guys I have this hold action set up to revive downed team mates. My issues are: 1) How can I reduce the completion time if the caller is a medic? 2) Can I cancel the holdAction with a hint if the caller has no FirstAidKits? (I want the hold action to show even if the caller does not have the firsAidKit, I just want the hold action to exit with a hint, would if ((({""FirstAidKit"" == _x} count (items _caller))<1)) exitWith {hint "You need a firstAidKit";} work inside the conditionProgress field? Thank you!
  6. Hi lads, so iam currently working on a Vietnam Mission for me and my Bois and i would like to be able to play some music tracks over the addaction menu, but i dont know how for the love of God how to do it. I have the tracks prepared in my description.ext which looks like that: class CfgMusic { tracks[]={}; class Vietnam { name = "Vietnam"; sound[] = {"\sound\Fortunate Son", db+0, 1.0}; }; class All right now { name = "All right now"; sound[] = {"\sound\Free - All Right Now.ogg", db+0, 1.0}; }; }; Iam wondering if that is allright and if yes how i make it that i can play the music over addaction. Thx for the help in advance.
  7. Hello, I open this thread so that people who search for it on the Internet can find it easier than I do. I have solved this with the help of the people who were in the Slack of the ACE (special mention to Schwaggot). 1. It have to be executed from an Addon (or at least it is the only way it worked for me) 2. Code executed from my addon config.cpp class ace_medical_treatment_actions { class Diagnose; class ExecuteMyCode: Diagnose { displayName = "EXECUTE MY CODE"; displayNameProgress = "EXECUTE MY CODE"; items[] = {}; category = "examine"; allowedSelections[] = {"All"}; allowSelfTreatment = 1; treatmentTime = 3; callbackSuccess = "true"; callbackFailure = ""; callbackProgress = ""; condition = "true"; itemConsumed = 0; litter[] = {}; }; }; Spyke.
  8. And the second issue that came up with the one mission was this: this addaction ["Pickup Key","Scripts\PickupKey.sqf"]; the above resulted in 4 actions appearing on the object. 4 were the players 4 were the actions. So if I place the above code in a trigger that is Server Only will the action only appear once while been shown to all players?
  9. Hello, community. I am working on a Coop mission, where I have placed 3 playable units. I will perhaps add more later, depending on my later ideas. They all (including me - the player) need to be able to pick up an item (a specific bagpack - ace_gunbag_Tan). I have placed this object on the ground and I am the only one who can pick it up right now, but it is an important item, being also a protective gear. 😄 So, when I or the other players pick up the first object, the same object should respawn on its previous location after, let us say, 10-15 seconds. It should respawn exactly X times, according to the playable count of units. How do I achieve that? Thank you in advance and cheers! 🙂

  11. Hi guys, here's the skinny. I've got an aircraft with 3 AI crew and one player crew in an MP environment on a dedicated server. That said the player is NOT grouped with the 3 AI crew for REASONS... What I'm trying to do is add an addiction to the aircraft to allow the player to select a position on the map and order the aircraft to Loiter with given radius and altitude. Here's the code I have at the moment Mother addaction ["Set Orbit", { _this select 1; Orbit_set = true; hintsilent "Open your Map. Leftclick to set orbit center"; onMapSingleClick " _wp1 = group MotheD addwaypoint [_pos, 0]; [group MotherD, 1] setWaypointType ""LOITER""; _mk1 = createMarkerLocal [""OrbitCenter"", _pos]; ""OrbitCenter"" setMarkerType ""waypoint""; [group MotherD, 1] setWaypointPosition [_pos, 1]; [group MotherD, 1] setWaypointLoiterRadius 2000; Mother flyInHeight 1500; Orbit_set = false; "; waitUntil{!Orbit_set}; onMapSingleClick ""; ;} ]; So whats happening is, I select the action (as the player) and I receive the hint, however when I click on a position after opening the map nothing happens. I can go into Zeus and verify no waypoint has been created. However; when I alt click on the map the whole aircraft gets teleported to that position... what gives I don't have a getpos setpos anywhere in there I'm totally lost, I was reading something about an EH for this kind of thing but I'm not understanding that, It seems way more complicated than it needs to be. Thanks! Mother = the aircraft variable name MotherD = the driver of Mother (Pilot)
  12. I have searched both google and the forums for this and see a couple answers to this question that do not make sense to me. I have a couple different firing ranges for my unit that are run via script. They work correctly in both hosted and on the dedi with one small exception. The rangemaster - which is a recording of one of our members played in the script - only executes on the player that activated the firing range, even though the range itself is working for every player on the server. I am 100% sure that it is a locality issue, as the addAction that calls the sqf is located in the init.sqf of the mission. I keep finding answers that have things like this: [Computadora1, ['Disparar a Barco',{<your code here>}] ] remoteExec ["addAction",0,true]; But I do not understand exactly what it all means as most people just provide a script and not an explanation of why it fixes the issues. My question is: how do I execute the addAction in game via remoteExec so that all players can both see the range and hear the rangemaster? Below is a snippet of my range code that involves the recordings - just to ensure that I haven't made a boneheaded error. init.sqf range4.sqf (partial) Thank you all in advance for the help!
  13. Im having abit of trouble getting my addactions to remove from list. What I have tried in greeting.sqf //Not the hole sqf file Guard1 addAction ["What do you do here", "Dialog\Guard1\JobDisc.sqf","((_target distance _this) <2"]; in JobDisc.sqf hint "I guard the entrance to Camp Bravo"; Guard1 addaction ["Anything happen lately?", "Dialog\Guard1\EnemyLoitering.sqf"]; Guard1 removeaction "What do you do here"; //this action is added by a different script file. I got a hole convo working with a few scripts like this. Everything works perfectly except for the remove action. I need the previous actions to be removed because if you ask again they add more. this is on a coop/single player mission where you respawn as a squad mate when you die until everyone is dead.
  14. Hello awesome BI community! This is the first time I'm posting an issue here so any help would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance for the use of your time. 🙂 END GOAL: helicopter spawns (via triggers listening to boolean variable in game) helicopter goes to object (defined in script) helicopter goes to player (defined in script) helicopter returns to base helicopter disappears (via triggers listening to boolean variable in game) and: the addAction has an initial menu that just states "SUPPORTS" then upon selecting deletes that action and adds a subset of supports for the player to use. INTENTION: What I'm trying to do is have ONE .sqf script and pass variables to that script via execVM from a trigger in game. I have created this script using 3 .sqf script files using public and predefined variables in game, and it works. But I want this to work more like a function than a script. So this is my first script which uses private variables. I would like this to remain as ONE .sqf so I can copy this to a new mission and create/define the objects/groups in the game, then pass those using execVM. PROBLEM: Everything works, except addAction transfers the code to a scheduled task and the private variables are undefined there, at least that's how I understand it. CODE THAT WORKS WITH PUBLIC VARIABLES: CODE IM TRYING TO GET WORKING WITH PRIVATE VARIABELS: HOW I'M CALLING THE CODE: *EDIT In the game it errors at: slingloadmain = _player addAction [ "SUPPORTS", { _player removeaction slingloadmain; _activate = false; Is this even possible?
  15. Hi there, It's quite annoying when someone else has used the gunner seat of a Heli, offsetting its position, and you later decide to Manual Fire from the pilot's seat and have a misaligned gun. I've been putting a lot of effort into setting up a script that can deal with this via a User Action, however I'm getting a few errors. A few of them are about missing " ) ", " ] ", " ; " (though I have done my best to never leave these out, including using a bracket checker plugin), or invalid variables (which is probably because it's checking a variable before it's set). To summarise, when a player pilot is in an armed Heli, they shall get a user action to centre the turret. This will have either the current AI or a temporary, invisible AI in the gunner seat target a spawned marker in front of the vehicle (if a player is in the seat it won't affect them). I currently have five six files in relation to this. EDIT: Below has been updated to the latest working script - If you get errors make sure there's no invisible characters using Word It requires CBA mission.Malden\init.sqf mission.Malden\description.ext mission.Malden\functions\functions.hpp mission.Malden\functions\fn_centreTurret.hpp mission.Malden\functions\fn_allowCentreTurret.sqf mission.Malden\functions\fn_turretDir.sqf Currently, unit spawning, marker generation and AI watching are working as intended, however the user action does not appear and if i set off turretdir.sqf manually ( [] execVM "turretdir.sqf"; ) it errors. EDIT: All working as intended. I'm not as proficient at SQF scripting as I'd like to be, so I've probably made some very obvious mistakes. Any help setting this up correctly and optimising would be appreciated. I will keep trying in the meantime.
  16. Hey guys, I would like to add for my players the ability to use an action which would only appear to them if they met a specific criteria. The criteria is to have a specific backpack and inside it, a specific item. I got the script responsible for the condition working, but only once I put it in the init.sqf. If I did it that way, the action would appear and remain available even after the condition was no longer fulfilled (the object being dropped for example). Naturally, I'd like to remove the action if the condition was no longer met. I basically do not know how to check for the condition so that it always pops up for the player once he meets that criteria. This is the script that I don't know how to call: if ((unitBackpack Player isKindof "tfw_ilbe_a_gr") && ("tfw_rf3080Item" in (items player + assignedItems player))) then {Player addAction ["Test Action", "test_action.sqf"];} Thanks!
  17. Hello, I'm currently trying to make some sort of interaction system for civilians, but ran into an issue, where the addAction function passes parameter to my script.sqf, but wrong. My script requires the parameter to be a string, but addAction seems to pass object. Any ideas? This is a code in a character init _entityName = "Alexander"; this setName _entityName; this addAction ["Interact", "script.sqf", _entityName, 1.5,true,true,"","player distance this < 2"]; This is my script.sqf DialogOwner = (_this select 1) select 0; DialogOption = 1; _handle = createdialog "Interakce"; then it creates a GUI window. When I try to create subtitles using spawn BIS_fnc_EXP_camp_playSubtitles, DialogOwner, which should be string is somehow an object. Thanks for any help
  18. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/addAction actRevive = player addAction [format [localize "STR_action_revive", name cursorObject], { [cursorObject, (_this select 0)] spawn Haz_fnc_revive; }, [], 0, false, false, "", "_this distance cursorObject <= 4 && cursorObject getVariable [""isUnconscious"", FALSE] && !(cursorObject getVariable [""isBeingRevived"", FALSE])"]; Something soo simple...
  19. Hey guys, the title pretty much says it all. I have a pretty heavy amount on mission making under my belt and this is a question I have wondered for quite some time. On many of my missions I have a "recruiter" NPC that has addaction commands to recruit a variety of friendly infantry units to join the player squad. I'd love to have a way to set a "cost" for this function based on the players score (say 10 kills to recruit an AI squadmate). I am aware of the "Set Cost" module for zeus but I dont think that can be used in this way. I know that such things are possible with heavy scripting (thinking about the DUWS mods) , wondering if anyone has any semi straightforward solutions to this...
  20. Hello everyone, i have created a whiteboard with an addAction script that will activate a trigger wich is synched to the Open Strategic map module. This all seems to work fine however once the strategic map is openend once it cannot be activated again. So my question is how to make addAction repeatable or how to link my strategic map modules to a script? The addaction script in my whiteboard : this addaction ["Choose Insertion Point",{Trigger_Con = true; publicVariable "Trigger_Con";}]; Condition field of the trigger : Trigger_Con; I have been searching the internet for hours now without any luck and so i hope some of you here knows the answer. Sorry if my english is a little rubbish and if this is the wrong section of the forum. Thanks in advance
  21. Hi all, I am a bit lost here... I am trying to pass on a custom argument (_actionIDx) from one addaction to the next: However, the 2nd addaction returns a unknown variable _actionIDx and i can not find out what i am doing wrong. Any ideas? VD_Back should remove the action it was called from. first addaction: the 2nd addaction
  22. Hello, everyone! I want to add a script to any kind of video players in the game - tv, laptop, phone, screen. I want to use some kind of addAction script to be able to interact with the video player and when I am done a video shall start. Would you help me with the right script? I've been searching over the net for the past few days with very small success. Thank you in advance!
  23. Hi guys. I am trying to add a new option to the mouse wheel menu, but I want it to be activated only if I have any handgun and if I do not have any the option does not shows at all. Everything works well, but I need it to only works if I have the handgun. This is what i have now: And of course at this moment works with or with out the handgun. player addaction ["<t color='#FF0000'>Shoot as Rich Texan</t>","AirShoot.sqf"]; Te script on "AirShoot.sqf" file works great. Please help. Thanks.
  24. Evening people So I'm currently in the process of making a missions which is coming along rather well but I've now ran into a problem (which I was aware would happen), and I'm unsure how to go about it. Context: Upon spawning there two sides "west" & "civilian" When the CivPop players spawn I wish for one of them at random to be selected to have a certain option and also be hinted they are the chosen player. The option I wish for them to have is an "AddAction" which when activated will execute a script.In that script I wish for it to force that unit to switch Side to "east", change their loadout, play a sound file, hint to "west", and then remove action. Currently I have a onPlayerRespawn.sqf file with the following (Var shooter is currently on "east" side) sleep 5; shooteraction = shooter addAction [ "<t color='#C00000'>BEGIN CARNAGE</t>", "shooter.sqf" ]; Within the shooter.sqf is the following shooter say3d ["pumped", 25, 1]; shooter removeAction shooteraction; All of the above code works fine, it's quite simple, I've got the sound file to play fine and the action to be removed; but now how would I go about the rest. Upon spawning: Choosing random CivPop player to have said option and hint informing them upon spawning When activated: Forcing chosen player to side "east" Forcing chosen player to change loadout to what I list To play the above sound file and finally remove action Any help would be great. I'm still quite Amature to development for Arma but I have a passion to learn. Sadly I'm stumped .
  25. Hello everyone, I'm having trouble adding actions to an object. Locally everything goes well. the code below works well and the actions are displayed every 2 after the others.
