This page should give beginners an overview of how to begin with scripting and where to find most of the information they need in the beginning. Some information might not be complete and can be found on other wiki pages. During mission editing and addon editing you may come across situations where actions or features you would like to have in your mission or addon cannot be accomplished using the basic or even the more advanced capabilities of the mission editor or within config files in the case of addons.
Some examples of this might be really cinematic cutscenes in missions or special animations for an addon. The solution to this is to take advantage of the game-engine's ability to call on an even more advanced feature known as scripting. Arma' s scripting language gives you a more direct control of core game features. With any combination of these commands and functions you can create custom processes that meet the specific needs of your mission or addon.
Should any question above be answered with "Yes"you may want to rethink your approach. Algorithm : In mathematics and computer science, an algorithm is an explicit specification of how to solve a class of problems. Algorithms can perform calculation, data processing and automated reasoning tasks. Control Structures : See Control Structures. Script : When speaking about a scriptwe usually mean a.

Send it in comments.Is there a patrol script out there that is favoured by the mission making community? It's also something I find a bit of a problem with the otherwise helpful thread on commonly used scripts: for someone who's still a beginner at this, it's almost impossible to know whether a script that was the best of its kind in or still works as intended or whether it's been superseded by later, more up-to-date scripts.
You can't really go wrong by just starting somewhere and seeing if the script works for you. What you need largely depends on your mission.
Cool, thanks. I guess this means that regardless of the error message I've been getting, UPS is still being used and should work. Knowing which error messages to heed and which to ignore is something I'm finding pretty much impossible as a scripting beginner. You will be able to leave a comment after signing in. What is the favoured patrol script?
Recommended Posts. Posted September 4, Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. No communication between patrols but perfect for small missions.
UPS - Lightweight script and easy to set up. Allows groups to communicate, flank and attack the players. No artillery support and overly aggressive vehicles are main drawbacks.
Bit heavy resource wise, often avoid using this this and use DAC instead when arty is needed. DAC - Very complex, but highly useful with lots of options to customise. This pretty much does it all and is well balanced, but error messages can be a bit cryptic.
Not used any of the others. Please sign in to comment You will be able to leave a comment after signing in Sign In Now.Een reactie posten. Hint regarding 'playable', simple Chopper gunner mission. Clear your map, add a Blufor soldier as 'player'.
Then add a 'side: Blufor' attack helicopter in flight set special to 'flying'. Give this chopper some 'move' waypoints on the map and set the last waypoint to 'cycle'. Set the control of the chopper 'playable as gunner'.
While in game you can switch to the gunner position hit T. The AI will flying you around while you're busy with some city renovations. It's a great way to practice weapons. Of course you could just add a chopper 'flying' and set control to 'player as gunner'. Note: you must have the SecOps module see If you don't want to receive incoming requests for secondary missions, copy-paste this in the SecOps SOM initialization field:. AI support units. Add support units on the map, make a group.
Make the rank of the group leader highest. Add a waypoint to the group leader just a few meters ahead and make it of the type 'support'. At start the units will move to this point, disembark and wait until they are called in.
You can call in support by pressing AI will also call in support if needed. For medical support you should add corpsman units as well. For protection you can add Humvees and such to the group. Armor will not work here, the crew will disembark and proceed on foot. To me the night missions were a bit too bright to my taste. It's basically a tweak for DirectX. You'll probably have to spend some time to adjust it to your configuration.
Put enbseries. Adjust settings in enbseries. Here is my personal tweaked enbseries. Just copy and paste it into your enbseries. Or start a new file yourself. Make sure the refresh rate matches your monitor. Just copy the ini and dll files to the root directory of your other game and tweak.

As I've started to work on projects to extend the replayability of Arma, I have come to several conclusions:.
Zeus Mission Generator
Therefore, I have started this collection of useful sqf scripts and guides, most of which I have streamlined and provided examples to. Disclaimer: please note that I am not the original author of many of the scripts discussed here. I do however modify, clean, or otherwise streamline the scripts extensively to ensure that I fully understand them during the corresponding discussion, and to ensure they integrate well with the my own scripts.
Adding a little commonality does great things for helping people understand something abstract, and I've tried my best to ensure that the contents of this project are as accessible as possible.
I've tried to acknowledge the original authors as I've found them, but if I've left you out, please drop me a message on twitter or my blogI'm happy to engage everyone, and I'll probably learn something from the encounter. I've only recently started writing sqf scripts for Arma, and while it's been a fairly easy process, I've had trouble really hitting the ground running. I feel this could be improved for others with a few quality resources, and therefore I will be including a series of tutorial posts on my blog.
As I use community scripts in my projects, I will post the cleaned up code here, along with documentation explaining the use of each script along with examples.
These scripts are largely from resources I've used while working on sqf projects of my own. To see a "bigger picture" example of these concepts and scripts in action, check out my dynamic world generator project. Unsure of where to start? Be sure to scrutinize the following official functions from BIS, as they add a ton of functionality and make scripting appear much less daunting much of the heavy lifting of creating Arma projects has already been handled by BIS in one form or another, especially now that the series has built upon so many iterations :.
