Add a command to get the delta time between two frames
Acknowledged, WishlistPublic

Description

Currently we have many ways to make script execution happen on every frame, but there is no easy and clean way to actually get the time elapsed between two frames (commonly referred to as delta time).

Yes, there are possibilities, but they are all messy and the engine already has it's own delta time calculation that would only need to be exposed via a scripting command.

An example of such command could be simply

_deltaTime = deltaTime;

And be used in things like:

_object setVelocity [_x, _y, _z + (_za * deltaTime)];

already possible using diag_tickTime and diag_frameno, and an each frame event handler

A wise man once said, if you want a script command added to Arma, wait 5 years (not true)

Added diag_deltaTime
