  1. The syntax for addAction is: object addAction [title, script, arguments, priority, showWindow, hideOnUse, shortcut, condition, radius, unconscious, selection, memoryPoint] The script of the addAction command will run in scheduled environment. I made a mod, where I added the action to a mortar. It's purpose is to rearm the mortar. The action is available to any unit assigned as gunner of that mortar. Now, when I command the gunner to rearm the mortar, rearming will take some time. But the AI gunner unit will tell "READY" immediately after ordering him to rearm. Because of the scheduled environment, which comports as if it was spawned, and not called. How am I able to delay that "READY" radio message until after reloading is finished?
  2. I am attempting to set up a vanilla arma 3 server on my windows 10 desktop. I have followed this guide. https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3_Dedicated_Server#Instructions_.28Windows_o.2Fs.29 When I launch my server, this is the error I receive: Warning: preNLOD format in object a3\data_f\tetrahedron.p3d Here is a link to the image of the window that gives me this error: http://imgur.com/a/x2t0S Please note that this error occurs after arma 3 creates the dedicated host. Here is a link to the .rpt file that was created when I started the dedicated server. https://gist.github.com/robbyjj/c7b6bfaeebc4088f9221f418a61dac2b
  3. Hi all, hope everyone is well. I don't really know whats going on here, so i'll explain it as best i can. Essentially, in game on my custom backpack whenever a unit equips it or the backpack moves, the main component of the pack works fine, as normal and as expected, the backpack config is fine, and everything other than the model is working. However, the physical clips that i use on the pack do not align with the bag correctly, and instead stay at ground level when a unit wears the pack. I'll have an image to show what i mean. Images (in-game screenshots) https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2186054963 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2186054813 https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2186054762 I'm just not sure why this is happening and what the fix is for this problem, and if anyone has any ideas, i'd be very grateful for help. I should also say i made the pack in blender, and made the clip as an individual object, than joined/merge it with the main bag object once i liked how it looked, so they should be considered all 'one big object' in the file - they are at least in blender, but it seems not in game?
  4. I am sure this has come up quite a bit but the examples I am finding aren't really helping much. The task I am trying to complete is when a player triggers the addAction, it changes the value of a local variable to true and then fires a hint if the value is true. For some reason, I just cannot get the hint inside the if to fire. I have tried changing the value of "activefob" from 0 to 1 and also currently false to true but to no avail. Is anybody able to lend a hand or tell me where I am going wrong? Much appreciated! _spawnPoleFnc = { //These comments are just for my own methodical thinking _pole = "Flag_UK_F" createVehicle getMarkerPos "marker_5"; //Spawns Flag _pole setVariable ["activefob", false]; //Sets variable to flag _pole addAction["Activate FOB", { [west, "HQ"] sideChat "FOB Activated!"; (_this select 0) setVariable ["activefob", true]; //Changes variable value }]; if ((_pole getVariable "activefob")) then { hint "It works!"; }; }; call _spawnPoleFnc;
  5. Has anyone experienced "stopped" or "moving" labels that Identify AI?? 😒 (Note "stopped" in the picture below. If so...how did you get rid of these labels??? Aside from being annoying & making game play not at all realistic, it is dropping my frame rates something fierce! Thanks in advance! Cheers
  6. It shows in game as a black opaque plane. As far as i can tell, it is configured the same way the antiwater in the test boat in official BI Samples for Arma 3. I only set the texture to PAA instead of TGA, but that makes no difference, and even if i copy the antiwater from the sample boat, it shows black as well. What is wrong? The actual antiwater from my p3d: http://www.filedropper.com/antiwater
  7. Hey Guys, So im trying to setup a dedicated server also to play on with my group. I use Ubuntu server and get the following problem when i load the mission: Even tho the mods are loaded: I made all files small letters already (removed capitals) and this is my startup line: ./arma3server -mod="mods\@cba_a3;mods\@cupterrainscore;mods\@cupterrainscwa;mods\@cupterrainsmaps;mods\@lingordingorisland;mods\@rhsafrf;mods\@rhsgref;mods\@rhssaf;mods\@rhsusaf;mods\@task_force_radio;" -port=2302 -name="FisherServer" -config="server.cfg" The folders contain the PBO files that are in the error, I tried to fix it for 5 hours already :/ Anyone have an idea where this is going wrong?
  8. I have a layer that I can hide which has a ton of trees I've added to the map. I don't want to have to hide them but their yellow indicator icons on the map make a huge mess. Is there a way to disable/hide those in the editor?
  9. Hello guys. As stated in the title, I would like to make a rearm script for MK6 mortars. I know these can be rearmed, when an ammo truck or another similar service vehicle is in vicinity. But I would like to be able to rearm the mortar from an ACE 82 mm ammo crate. These crates contain a limited number of rounds. My idea: Add an action menu entry, where you can rearm the mortar from these crates. Now the mortar is counted as a vehicle, and vehicle magazines cannot be refilled with an exact amount of rounds. So, I thought I would define my own magazines for the mortars in the config. Problem: I cannot reload the mortar with these magazines. So, there must be a flaw inside the config. Here is my config. Can you guys point me where the error might be? class CfgPatches { class NIC_MK6_mortar { units[] = {}; weapons[]= {"NIC_mortar_82mm"}; requiredVersion = 1; requiredAddons[] = {}; magazines[]= { "NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum" }; }; }; class CfgFunctions { class NIC { class base { class InitFlightHeight { preInit = 1; file="\NIC_rearm_MK6\scripts\init.sqf"; }; }; }; }; class CfgWeapons { class CannonCore; class mortar_82mm: CannonCore {}; class NIC_mortar_82mm: mortar_82mm { author="NIC"; magazines[]= { "ACE_1Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "ACE_1Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "ACE_1Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE", "NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke", "NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum", "8Rnd_82mm_Mo_shells", "8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke_white", "8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Flare_white" }; }; }; class cfgMagazines { class 8Rnd_82mm_Mo_shells; class NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE: 8Rnd_82mm_Mo_shells { count=2; author="NIC"; }; class NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE { count=3; }; class NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE { count=4; }; class NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE { count=5; }; class NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE { count=6; }; class NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_HE { count=7; }; class 8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke_white; class NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke: 8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke_white { count=2; author="NIC"; }; class NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke { count=3; }; class NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke { count=4; }; class NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke { count=5; }; class NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke { count=6; }; class NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Smoke { count=7; }; class 8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Flare_white; class NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum: 8Rnd_82mm_Mo_Flare_white { count=2; author="NIC"; }; class NIC_3Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum { count=3; }; class NIC_4Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum { count=4; }; class NIC_5Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum { count=5; }; class NIC_6Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum { count=6; }; class NIC_7Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum: NIC_2Rnd_82mm_Mo_Illum { count=7; }; }; Regards EDIT NVM, Solved the issue. Config is correct. I just interchanged 'weapon' with 'vehicle' I tried to create the weapon, while you have to create the vehicle, then change the weapon ON the vehicle. Sorry for inconvenience.
  10. I'm building a water feature above sea level for my own nefarious purposes (soon to be revealed). I need to be able to create a splash effect when something falls in it. This will be above sea level so I can't use my spawn a bullet to hit water trick. The splash size should be visually nice for when a man-sized object falls into water. I'm guessing it involves the Drop command which will take me forever to figure out how to do. Normally I'm a do-it-yourself guy, but the Drop command has a big learning curve. So I'm hoping there is a Drop command guru out there. Somebody may have already made this for another purpose and can share...? Or maybe there is a way to dig the splash effect out of the configs somehow? I will be eternally grateful and credit you on this project (it will be worth it!) 😉
  11. I need to calculate a position in 3d space that is 40 meters from a unit based on eyeDirection. If unit is looking at the sky then the position is 40 meters in the sky. If looking down at ground, then position should be under ground. Input: - eyeDirection unit - meters Output: Position I'm not a math guy, and struggle with vectors. I also googled the crap out of this and couldn't find an answer. Thanks!
  12. Arma 3 is closing a alot of my Apps, Nvidia Control Panel, ShadowPlay, even Razer Synapse, Asus Aura, Samsung Magician and iCue(for Corsair Keyboard), what's happening??? EDIT: Battleye issue EDIT 2: Solution at least for me: Disabling Ultra Low Latency Mode in Nvidia Control Panel - Reboot the Computer - Start the Game and should be fixed.
  13. I'm working on a script that allows for players to be non-combatants on a belligerent side (i.e. not civilian), however while expanding to nested If statements I have encountered an Error missing ) issue in the else statement, it's perplexed me and I think a rubber duck debug is in order. private ["_noncomState", "_wArray"]; _noncomState = player getVariable "var_lk_noncom"; _wArray = weapons player; if (count _wArray == 0) then { if (_noncomState == false) then { player setCaptive 1.44; hint "You are a non-Combatant!"; player setVariable ["var_lk_noncom", true] } else []; } else { if (_noncomState == true) then ( player setCaptive 0; hint "You are a Combatant!"; player setVariable ["var_lk_noncom", false] ) else []; }; This is the error that's produced: 16:36:46 Error in expression <te == true) then ( player setCaptive 0; hint "You are a Combatant!"; player se> 16:36:46 Error position: <; hint "You are a Combatant!"; player se> 16:36:46 Error Missing ) 16:36:46 File C:\Users\Lynn\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\Kinch\missions\n..., line 29 16:36:46 Error in expression <te == true) then ( player setCaptive 0; hint "You are a Combatant!"; player se> 16:36:46 Error position: <; hint "You are a Combatant!"; player se> 16:36:46 Error Missing ) 16:36:46 File C:\Users\Lynn\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\Kinch\missions\n..., line 29 16:36:46 Mission id: 4964a4130cdf29b09d84b46e8d2333956209f5c6 The error points to if (_noncomState == true) as being the culprit, however being formatted identically to the first part is confusing me. The script is initialized from a sequence starting from InitPlayerLocal.sqf, and the intent of the variable var_lk_noncom is to give the script something to check against so that the SetCaptive command isn't spammed every time a player's inventory changes state. Suggestions?
  14. I am currently trying to make it so that when a hold action is preformed on a crate, it will put the crate in the back of a non specific Zamak Truck. This would mean that the seats in the back of the truck would have to be locked and anyone sitting in the truck must be ejected from those seats. This is my script so far, all working fine. [ this, "Load.", "\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", "_caller distance _target < 3", {}, {}, { _this call { _ZamakTrans = nearestObjects [ _this select 0, [ "Truck_02_transport_base_F" ], 25 ]; if (count _ZamakTrans > 0) then { target = _ZamakTrans select 0; { target lockCargo [ _x,true ] } forEach [ 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 ]; box attachTo [ target, [ 0, 0.25, -0.15 ] ]; box setVectorDirAndUp [ [ 1, 0, 0], [0, 0, 1 ] ]; }; } }, {}, [], 2, Nil, true, false ] remoteExec [ "BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd", 0, this ]; All I need at the moment is to be able to eject people from the seats 2, 3 4, 5, 6 and 7. (any advice/criticism on my script will be greatly appreciated.)
  15. I found this thread of Arma2 from 2009 which asks the very same question. Now I must say I haven't tried this yet but, I wonder upon the release of Eden update if there are better alternatives given sync seems to have been sort of discontinued (I'm a Mission Editor amateur so I don't know if sync still actually exists.) or if simply there are better methods as of 2016's Arma 3 capabilities unlike A2 from 2009. Assurance of A2's method and possible alternatives are welcome. Thanks in advance.
  16. Anyone had similar issues? OB suddenly stopped loading textures. Bulldozer preview was configured 100% fine and working and then just stopped loading model textures on all models. I tried re-installing , verifying , double checking textures paths , double checking the default texture folder P:\ is set, as it was when it was working and then just this: sometimes this , with some visual artifacts No textures, strange lines instead of smooth gray mesh (if textures are not set). The only things I've noticed in the logs that it has some error logged: Invalid module. Missing link to InitPluginModule function (127) Have no idea if it was there before, never checked since everything was working. That's it. ObjectBuilder.log - https://pastebin.com/i33X5FKQ
  17. Is there any good way to imitate arrays with action on dialogs? I have this right now: action = "player addMagazine ""20Rnd_762x51_Mag"";"; It works 'n' all, but I was trying to make it add more than just one magazine to the player. Is this possible without using execVM to execute a script elsewhere?
  18. SPOILERS INCOMING FOR THE FIRING FROM VEHICLES SCENARIO!!! Is there an easy way to add hostages to your mission in the same way as the firing from vehicles hostages? Where they had the nice animation and you had to use the BIS_fnc_holdActionAdd action to release them? If not, how do I tie the animations together so nicely like they did there? Currently struggling with getting the animations nice n smooth. Thanks!

    I was searching up how to set up a custom bind that would execute some code. I was able to find code which did exactly what I want it to do with some editing, but I have no idea how any of it works. The code is this: waitUntil {!isNull(findDisplay 46)}; (findDisplay 46) displaySetEventHandler ["KeyDown","_this call keyspressed"]; keyspressed = { _shift =_this select 2; _handled = false; switch (_this select 1) do { case 35: {//H key if (_shift) then { player action ["SwitchWeapon", player, player, 100]; }; }; }; _handled; }; I generally can read this and understand what it is doing. This makes it so that when I click shift+h it executes the player action, I can understand the case 35 is the H key with DIK KeyCodes, but how does this script know that you need to press the shift key as well?
  20. I have created a script an assigned arma 3 weapon classnames to different variables, like this: _sg_mk1 = "srifle_DMR_03_F"; _sg_mk1Mags = "20Rnd_762x51_Mag"; I have then made an addAction and put it on an ammo crate so that when you click mk-I you will get the weapon in the variable above. Like this: _crate = sg_classes; _crate addAction ["MK-I", _sg_mk1, _sg_mk1Mags]; I have made it like this for flexibility, instead of changing everything I can change one classname in a variable to edit the outcome of your option. There is an issue though when I go in-game and scroll down on the crate I see MK-I, but when I click it I get the following error: '|#|srifle_DMR_03_F' Error Undefined Variable in expression: srifle_dmr_03_f So my question is how would I properly go about assigning classnames to variables and then have the variables be put in an addAction to give players the items.
  21. I have set up a dialog with some buttons. With one of the button I have made an Action like this: action = [] execVM "sg_places\sg_og.sqf"; I have checked so many times and that is definitely the correct directory to reach that sqf. Directory: teleport.hpp (the dialog with buttons) >> sg_places (folder) >> sg_og.sqf Is there anything else that can cause this error, because it should find the file it is definitely pointing in the right direction.
  22. Hello, I'm trying to remove vegetation in an area for a composition loaded with the debug console. I can only execute the script from my client since I don't have access to the server files. { _x hideObject true } foreach (nearestTerrainObjects [_newObject,["BUSH"],50]); This code works for my client but the rest of the server can still see the vegetation. Also if I reconnect the vegetation would reappear. { waitUntil {!isNull _newObject}; { _x hideObject true } foreach (nearestTerrainObjects [_newObject,["BUSH"],50]); } remoteExec ["spawn", 0, True]; DarleneWhale on /r/armadev wrote me this which should've executed the code on all clients with JIP set to true. Unfortunately, I've hit a bump since the vegetation still doesn't disappear for the players nor me with this code. Does anybody know how I can execute the HideObject command locally so the vegetation disappears for all players on the server including the players that join/reconnect? Any help would be much appreciated.
  23. Hi guys, I need a little script that makes hat or helmet fly off when unit shot in head. I know I saw a video of this once, so somebody has scripted it. But I just did a search and can't find anything. I can write one, but if one exists already that will save me an hour or so (and I'm putting all my time into polishing up new Razing Cane mission).
  24. Does anyone have the ArmA 2: OA colour corrections? I want to have the same lighting in CUP terrains as you did in Operation Arrowhead with the module. Someone saw the post and sent me a substitue: "colorCorrections"ppEffectEnable true; "colorCorrections"ppEffectAdjust[0.9,1,0,[0.1,0.1,0.1,-0.1],[1,1,0.85,0.4],[1,0.1,0,0]]; "colorCorrections"ppEffectCommit 0;
  25. I'm trying to write a script that involves setting the colour of the praetorian CIWS turret to the "sand" paint-job available in the garage menu. I understand how setObjectTexture works but can't figure out how to use getObjectTextures. I have a sand coloured CIWS placed down in zeus; what command would I use to see what the name of the texture is so I can incorporate it into my script? the example on the wiki runs fins but doesn't return a hint or anything. EDIT: Problem solved. In the eden editor, when changing a vehicles appearance, there is an "export" button which provides a script which spawns a vehicle of the selected colour.
