commy2 added a comment to T85889: ctrlSetPosition doesn't work with variables as [x,y,w,h].

Both are numbers:
x = 123; typeName x
-> "SCALAR"

_x = 123; typeName _x
-> "SCALAR"

Maybe your public variables didn't arive when you executed ctrlSetPosition?

You should probably make a repro mission.

I have to correct myself. Vehicles are not affected, but Static weapons are.

I attached a repro mission. Just enter the static grenade launcher and the Hunter GMG as gunner and fire.

The static grenade launcher will fire the 40mm grenades at 900 m/s velocity, which is way faster than the intended value.

commy2 added a comment to T85744: What processes are effected when a player presses ESC.

pressing ESC causes some things to break such as chat window or loss of USB controller/joystick.

I've never experienced any of this. What do you mean by break? You don't see the chat while being in the pause menu? Does it show again if you close the menu again? If so, then I wouldn't consider this a bug and probably the smallest issue the game has. Same for the controller prolem you described.

Or could a 0.5 second delay be put into some code on a dev build to see if stability in increased.

This game does work not at all like you think it does. How is that supposed to solve anything?

Strange. There is still no crash recorded in that RPT file. It looks exactly like the game was aborted with Alt+F4. I'm running out of ideas.

You could try this:

  1. go to your games main directory:

C:\Games\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3

and delete these two folders (or make a backup):

Missions
MPMissions

  1. go to your profiles folder:

%USERPROFILE%\documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles

then enter your main profile (you might want to do this for every profile, if you have more than one)
and delete the following folders:

missions
MPMissions
Saved
UserSaved

  1. finally go to:

%LOCALAPPDATA%/Arma 3

and delete the folder:

Yeah, I noticed that too. Apparently it's a campaign / set of missions.

Installation:
Extract "DFA.pbo" to your "Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3\Campaigns" folder.

The developer wrote that this is the way to install it, but I don't think you are supposed to throw any files inside the Campaigns folder (which doesn't even exist, you have to make one), similar to how you are not supposed to put files inside the Addons-folder.

commy2 added a comment to T85187: New "if ... throw" implementation is broken.

Downvoted.
This is expected behavior. The expression:
("U" call Foo)
is evaluated before:
if (false) throw
, because it has round brackets around it.

It's return value (always "false") is thrown and passed as _expression. Can be easily tested by replacing the first
if (false)
with
if (true)
The current "try throw catch"-syntax is useless in my opinion. Even with the recent "improvements". It should be avoided altogether.

commy2 added a comment to T84831: Add script commands to get/set weapon zeroing and get/set current weapon scope mode.

There is a get-command for the zeroing.

https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/currentZeroing

There is no set-command though.

It should correspond with these config entries:

discreteDistance[] = {100,200,300,400,500,600};
discreteDistanceInitIndex = 1;

zeroingIndex player;
-> 1

player setZeroingIndex 5;

The commands for the scope mode could be following the configs too. Example ARCO:

class OpticsModes {
class ARCO2collimator {...};
class ARCO2scope: ARCO2collimator {...};
};

getOpticsMode player;
-> "ARCO2collimator"

player setOpticsMode "ARCO2scope";

The crash is reproducable every time on my end. Doesn't matter where I enter this code, it crashes.

I also uploaded a single player mission which instantly crashes upon game start. (I put <"" splitString " "> into the init box of the player.)

commy2 added a comment to T83675: append not working.

@MDCCLXXVI

You are having a similar issue as @chris579. append and pushBack are meant to manipulate already existing arrays. They ARE NOT replacements for ARRAY + ARRAY that are magically faster.
The reason they are faster is, as I said, that they don't create arrays but manipulate already existing ones.

Your first example has to be:

array1 append array2;
array1 append array3;

And the second one:

_allDeadAndThatGuy = allDeadMen;
_allDeadAndThatGuy pushBack man;

May 10 2016, 11:45 AM · Arma 3
commy2 added a comment to T83675: append not working.

No it's not!

append doesn't return anything. If you only put ARRAY append ARRAY into the console, you obviously won't see anything. You have to use a pointer to a previously created array, so you can reference it later.

What you did can be compared to:

_arr = ["test0"];
_arr append ["test1"];

append doesn't return and therefore you don't see anything. The third line is the important one. That one is impossible with your set up, because you never saved the array pointer in a variable.

May 10 2016, 11:45 AM · Arma 3
commy2 added a comment to T83675: append not working.

No bug.

Thats not how append is suppossed to work. You add an array to an already existing array.

Try this instead:

_arr = ["test0"];
_arr append ["test1"];
_arr

-> ["test0", "test1"]

For adding one element it's recommended to use pushBack instead:

_arr = ["test0"];
_arr pushBack "test1";
_arr

-> ["test0", "test1"]

It doesn't. There is no difference whether you put stuff inside one config.cpp or into multiple aside from loading order.

Also for the record, += doesn't even work with "arrays with unkown previous values". In practice it ONLY works with Throw, because there is no reason to inherit from that class as every soldier uses it.

You can't for example add a custom silencer to the MX (compatibleItems[]), because the MXSW inherits from that.
