drawIcon3D not rendered in camera without cameraEffectEnableHUD
New, WishlistPublic

Description

The icons drawn with drawIcon3D are not rendered when we are in a camera view without executing "cameraEffectEnableHUD true;".
However, the command drawLine3D is rendered with and without cameraEffectEnableHUD.

I don't know if it is a bug or a feature. But I think drawIcon3D and drawLine3D should have the same behavior. {F21424}

Steps To Reproduce

The attached mission file demonstrate that we need to use "cameraEffectEnableHUD true;" to render a drawIcon3D in camera mode.
This is not the case for drawLine3D which is always rendered.

It works with user created dialogs. Perhaps you should edit the ticket and indicate that it won't show when debug console is open only, unless you have more examples. I know it works on deathcam no problem.

Thx for this report KK,
You are right. The conditions to produce the problem are more complex.
I'm investigating on it and will update the ticket.

I finally found what is the exact problem.
It is not related to the dialog opened, but to camera view without using the command cameraEffectEnableHUD.

I put a mission file to show the difference with and without cameraEffectEnableHUD.

It is no more a matter for me, since using cameraEffectEnableHUD allow drawing icons in camera mode.

I don't know if it is a bug or a feature. But I think drawIcon3D and drawLine3D should have the same behavior.

"But I think drawIcon3D and drawLine3D should have the same behavior."

Unfortunately there are quite a few command setups in ArmA that go against "common sense" :(
