  1. Hi guys! I'm trying to replace the map by a custom image whenever players open their map. What I have so far allows me to create the pic when the map is opened and works, but the trouble is it is shown over every other layer, while what I'd like to do would be to place it just above the map, but behind everything else so that players can see everything else, (tasks, briefing etc.). Any insight will be greatly appreciated. Here's what I have so far: findDisplay 46 displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown", { if (inputAction "showMap" >0) then { _x = -0.00531249 * safezoneW + safezoneX; _y = -0.00399999 * safezoneH + safezoneY; _w = 1.01063 * safezoneW; _h = 1.008 * safezoneH; _ctrl = findDisplay 12 ctrlCreate ["rscPicture", 1000]; _ctrl ctrlSetPosition [_x,_y,_w,_h]; _ctrl ctrlSetText "media\img\splashscreen1.paa"; _ctrl ctrlCommit 0; }; }];
  2. So enjoying this game so far. Except, I can't get used to the stupid controls when I go into ads. There seems to be no smoothing whatsoever like in most console games. I do however see lots of advanced options, but haven't a clue what to change. Or if there is even anything to help improve it. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
  3. How do I use the thrust reversers with the jets on the jets dlc? Every time I set the plane to auto land I see the thrust reversers come out but I am not sure how to do it manually. If you have any information on how to work the thrust reversers that would be nice. Thankyou!
  4. Re-mapping is a train wreck

    I have been re-mapping PC games for twenty years.. (so stop with the presumptions before I start). I was the first person to upload a downloadable .ini file of Left-handed controls for The Witcher 3 (until the Devs fixed that error of theirs). I have tried a thousand times to get this ARMA 3 game working properly after re-mapping. BUT When I go forwards, the game sends me sideways. W,A,S,D (for me [leftys]) is Numpad 8,4,5,6 etc... So I press NP 8 instead of W to go forwards. BUT The game sends me sideways EVEN THOUGH ONLY the ONE Action IS MAPPED TO THAT KEY. AND; Every update seems to destroy previous re-mapping. If I delete EVERY SINGLE CONTROL AND START AFRESH (with no double-mappings) the game still will not allow me to move around logically in game. Around 780,000,000 other left-handed people today: So (out of my 950 Steam games); Its about time there was more than ONE game that has a pre-set of Left-handed Keyboard settings (as Right-handed players are given 100% of the time). Does anyone know how to fix this train-wreck of controls?
  5. I use different controls than most people, where my left mouse is to move forward and right mouse is to shoot. The issue I have ran into with this game is when I use my right click to shoot in controlled burts or single fire without changing fire rate, there is a delay to when my gun shoots again that is not present when switching the fire button to any other key. I was then thinking a workaround for this is to use auto hot key to bind my left click to right, and right click to left to mitigate this issue. I was wondering if Auto hot key is detectable and bannable by battleye, can anyone please inform me? Thanks. To clarify, I would wish to ONLY use this script to switch my left and right click that is it.

  7. Hi, In my dialogs.hpp I'd like to group several controls under one common idc (so that i can do ctrlshow [_group, true] or false to hide and show the whole group. I'm currently using rscControlsgroup as a parent to achieve that but it is not satisfying because safezone size and positions params of controls inside the controlsgroup are relative to the controlsgroup position and dimension. I have tried grouping them like this: class Group1 : RscControlsGroupMRHSAT { idc = 1208; show = false; class controls { class MRHMarkings: RscPictureMRHSAT { idc = 1231; //show = false; text = "MRHSatellite\Paa\screenmarks.paa"; x = 0.250625 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.122 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.49875 * safezoneW; h = 0.49 * safezoneH; }; class MRHAltitudeName: RscStructuredTextMRHSAT { idc = 1204; text = "Altitude"; x = 0.63125 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.192 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0590625 * safezoneW; h = 0.028 * safezoneH; }; class MRHAltitudeDisplay: RscStructuredTextMRHSAT { idc = 1205; text = "AltDisplay"; x = 0.63125 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.22 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0590625 * safezoneW; h = 0.028 * safezoneH; }; class MRHViewModeName: RscStructuredTextMRHSAT { idc = 1206; text = "View Mode"; x = 0.63125 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.248 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0590625 * safezoneW; h = 0.028 * safezoneH; }; class MRHViewModeDisplay: RscStructuredTextMRHSAT { idc = 1207; text = "ViewDisplay"; x = 0.63125 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.276 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0590625 * safezoneW; h = 0.028 * safezoneH; }; class MRHSlider: RscSliderMRHSAT { idc = 1202; type = CT_SLIDER; style = SL_VERT; x = 0.716563 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.122 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0328125 * safezoneW; h = 0.49 * safezoneH; color[] = { 1, 1, 1, 1 }; coloractive[] = { 1, 0, 0, 0.5 }; //onLoad = "call MRH_fnc_SetSatRange;"; onSliderPosChanged = "((findDisplay 9751) displayCtrl 1205) ctrlSetStructuredText parsetext (str (round (_this select 1))); _cam = missionNamespace getVariable ""SATCAM""; _cam setPos [(getpos _cam select 0), (getpos _cam select 1), (_this select 1)];"; }; }; }; that is to say without assigning position/dimension settings to the controls group itself. And surprisingly enough it seemed to work... Until I tried changing to different UI sizes and then it all got fucked up. So basically is there a way to group controls under a same idc without using controlsgroups?
  8. Hey guys, I've just registered so, many greets to you all:D Allright, here's the idea: Last night I was bored and played some Tropico, then I thought: How about implementing some small economy to the different locations like the lumberjack camps or banana plantations on Tanoa to hire some guys to work for your Team and earn some money with it. It could lead to a persistent rebell mission where you have to buy new weapons and stuff and defend your economy against the local government or something, don't know exactly, just been playing around, but here is my point: I have set up a first dialog that opens at a laptop at the plantation office like this: If you klick on the different inactive buttons (in fact these are pictures, but I will call them buttons from here on), the script will hire some workers, pay them as you want and you will need some trucks to move the stuff your guys harvestet. Example: If no budget button is active, they all have transparency 0.2. If you just hover over it, transparency is set to 1 to indicate to the player that he can click something. In the case of no active buttons, if player for example clicks on budget button #3, all buttons left from #3 including #3 will switch to active, color transparency changes from 0.2 to 1, colorActive transparency switches from 1 to 0.2. Now you are paying some money, right;D If player now clicks on maybe button #2, buttons #2 and #3 will "deactivate" and change transparency back again. Everything is working fine so far, you get the idea, right? So here are the problems, finally: I need a method that allows me to create just one class (inside controls in dialog.hpp) for the "budget buttons", one for the "worker buttons" and just one for "trucks buttons", wich I can access dynamically via some script to set their position and transparency. Right now, every single button has its own class, so just for this dialog i needed to write 17 classes RscActiveText. I did this because I needed to change the transparency of "color[] = ...." and "colorActive[]=..." every time you click on a button and for this I declared three unique variables for every button, makes 51 global variables in total just to change transparency. First one to let the script know if the button is already clicked, and the two other ones to change the transparency of color and colorActive back and forth, depending on the state of the button. Heres a little summary of a part of the dialog.hpp and the script activated by clicking the buttons. The 51 global variables (and more) ar predefined after init. dialog.hpp: class budg_bttn1: RscActiveText { idc = 1601; text = "pics\moneyPile.paa"; x = 0.840312 * safezoneW + safezoneX; y = 0.258 * safezoneH + safezoneY; w = 0.0154688 * safezoneW; h = 0.022 * safezoneH; color[] = {1, 1, 1, missionNamespace getVariable "bttn_col1"}; //global variable#1 for transparency colorActive[] = {1, 1, 1, missionNamespace getVariable "bttn_actCol1"}; //global variable#2 for transparency onMouseButtonClick = "[_this] execVM 'oumere_plantations\moneyBttns.sqf';"; }; class budg_bttn2: RscActiveText { idc = 1602; text = "pics\moneyPile.paa"; x = 0.87125 * safezoneW + safezoneX;

As you can imagine, if I want to create more businesses on the island, I need to write a huge amount of classes and variables for every location. The problem is, that If I just use one class using the same global vars for the budget buttons, all buttons change transparency even when I just click a single one. I don't really unserstand how to refer between classes and variables using uiNamespace, maybe there's a solution in there? I hope I explained this one well enough and any help is highly appreciatet.

  9. Is there a way to alter keybindings which don't appear in the options menu? I.E., for flight, I would like to re-map the free-view binding, which in my software is [ctrl + Alt-Alt], or the asterisk key on my number pad. Is there an INF or text file somewhere that will allow for more extensive key-mapping than the limited offerings in the Options menu itself?
  10. Hello, before I start I would like to say a bit about me as a player/pilot. I know how to fly, take of, land, etc as well as how to use guided bombs and missiles. But there are still some thing about flying and fighting planes/jets which I just dont get. 1) How do you control jets as well as choppers with your mouse? In the options it says "MOUSE UP/DOWN" to move the nose up/down but it doesnt work. Do I need to activate these controles somehow? 2) Whenever I fly the movements of the aircraft as well as the free look camera (when you press "Alt") feels smoothed by the game even though i turned mouse smoothing completely off. 3) When flying jets without a radar (as an example the To-199 Neophron) I'm just sometimes able to lock on to other aircrafts even under seemable same conditions (less then 2km away, clearly aiming at the other aircraft, etc). What am I doing wrong? Or is there some kind of bug? 4) Can you recommend any workshop maps to train dog fights, etc.? I'm thankfull for every tipp and advice you guys can give me! :)
  11. Controls Wont Save

    As the title says. My controls wont save. I'm not a fan of the layout of the ArmA 3 Apex controls. I've always used the default ArmA 3 controls. When I load up the game it sets me on Apex, so I switch it over to the other preset. And I click OK everytime. And I set up my keybinds. And I click ok. and I play. The next time I start the game up. It's back on Apex. And I have to redo the whole reset keybinds EVERY time. Help me the hell out. I reinstalled the game. I validated game cache. I made new profiles. Nothing. I'm the admin on my computer. My profile files keep reverting to "read only" After changing them. please help me.
  12. Hi all, Has anybody else noticed that pressing the escape key whilst in a jet causes the controls to gain a mind of their own? We have been testing the new jet mechanics in local multiplayer sessions and earlier we noticed that whenever the escape key is pressed to open the menu, the plane begins to do its own thing. This includes; Thrusting up, thrusting down, raising flaps, lowering flaps, deploying the speed/air break. It is exceptionally annoying and makes flying dangerous at times. The same thing tends to happen when working with GUI's as well, such as the INS/GPS targeting interface in Firewill's F-16's. Though this has been tested in vanilla ArmA and has the same effect, though only in a multiplayer environment (even through the editor) where the game cannot be paused when escape is pressed. I've put up a ticket on the tracker so hopefully it gets seen to soon. Anybody else noticing thing? Tracker Ticket: https://feedback.bistudio.com/T124868
  13. Hello, I am currently trying to create my first arma 3 car, although I am confused on the controls of object builder. I mainly am trying to flip the wheel to put on the other side of the vehicle although I am clueless. Please reply ASAP so I may continue the project of mine :)
  14. Controller Layout?

    Hi, I just got the game and was wondering if there was a list on here or anywhere that showed what buttons do what for like an xbox 360 controller?
  15. Hello guys, I would like to know if it was possible to "unlink" parachute controls from helicopter controls ? I bound cyclic movements of the helicopters to mouse movements Thus, when I'm in a steerable parachute, whenever I want to look around, my parachute begin to turn Strange thing it that only Cyclic left and Cyclic right seems to be linked to parachute controls, not Cyclic forward nor backward Freelook mode doesn't seem to have any effect in parachute Thanks for your help ! :)
  16. Hi all, I'm in a spot of bother with trying to return the mini-map control (whilst in multiplayer). I have looked at this topic but am unable to get the script working. Here is what I have so far: // add group draw handler to mini-map _nul = [] spawn { disableSerialization; _ctrlMiniMap = controlNull; // search loop to return mini-map map control while {isNull _ctrlMiniMap} do { { _ctrlMiniMap = _x displayCtrl 101; if !(isNull _ctrlMiniMap) exitWith {true;}; } count (uiNamespace getVariable ["IGUI_Displays",[]]); sleep 0.1; }; // adds draw handler _ctrlMiniMap ctrlAddEventHandler ["Draw",{_nul = _this call RAD_fnc_groupMarkersMapDraw;}]; }; I have run both the script from the topic (see above) and my modified version. Both offer no success, any ideas or examples for how to get this working would be greatly appreciated? Thanks, Bull
  17. Control Setup Issues

    Hi Guys, I'm trying to assign my controls and such. However, when I try to assign a key, the game is automatically assigning that function to a control axis on my Joystick setup. I have a Thrustmaster Warthog setup on my machine. I can't simply assign a key to a keyboard button by itself. Any Ideas? I didn't have this issue before. Don't know of an update changed how this worked. Thanks Ed
  18. Hi all. Does anyone know about setting up the controls in Arma 3 for flight? I am REALLY trying to get the Thrustmaster WARTHOG HOTAS Games controller set to PROFILE "ASSOCIATE CONFIGURATION" in the hardware`s T.A.R.G.E.T software; BUT, I Cannot find the `.fcf` file/s. What I have done a hundred times:- a) I start the TARGET software that comes with the controllers. B) I "Create Association" in the "PATH" to the game Drive .exe for Arma 3. c) I TRY TRY x100 to link to a MYSTERY .fcf file. But I have hunted across the earth for it, but I cannot find it because I do not know where to look. My bad for wanting to fly a helicopter. Where would I ask this questio9n in the ARMA 3 forums?
  19. In first: Settings - Controls - Interface Layout We have several tools for aircraft... false-Horizon, altimeter, speedometer... If altimeter and speedometer we can see at vehicle-health panel, the horizon we wont. But i still need to control on both dificulty level by pilot tools as mount in the helicopter (like a Littlebird or Kaiman). On Kayman without RMB zoom i dont see false-Horizon att all - all number is white rectangulars. === In second: We use ALT key for toogle freelook and double ALT for switch freelook. In switched freelook pressing alt by some reason backs the camera at middle. It makes some problems when driving Helicopter. I think IN FREELOOK MODE key ALT must GIVE CONTROLS AND HOLD CAMERA IN CURRENT POSITION without backing it to center. That allows use freelook for correct heli landing position when sitting down and correct it with mouse when holding ALT key in freelook mode. Sorry, i want to see bottom and use mouse to land helicopter. === In third: We have option "vehicle freelook" that not correctly working with freelook key. When vehicle freelook is activated - we cannot use both key for again use mouse to control helicopter - it used for freelook only even if key ALT is pressed. I think it's a bug. === In fourth: Key V is using for stepping over obstacle. Do BIS can add the check for that function - is obstacle here? That dancing when you accidentally press V making both actions inactive for 2 seconds, means a lot of time in PVP. That function allows sometimes stepping through walls, through high fence, or come into texture. Need a check like function "Stand weapon" - key wont work if we havent nearby wall or flat surface. Still here - if we not have small fence - function is inactive. === Fiveth: Swim keys we can remove from game. Use camera an classic W-S-A-D. I think need to add swim-control with depending from carrying weight. So slow swim speed for both missions even if haven't inventory at all. Very slow. Water missions is always bored for make it in future.
