madbull added a comment to T79345: Command playScriptedMission doesn't work.

On the VBS wiki, the command has a 4th argument :
https://resources.bisimulations.com/w/index.php?title=playScriptedMission

This argument is accepted by the Arma engine as an optional value. But still not working if set to true.

Find only one occurence of this command in the whole Arma 3 addons :
In Addons\ui_f\a3\ui_f\scripts\startCredits.sqf (in Arma 3\Addons\ui_f.pbo)

Limnos island ? Seems old stuff.
Did not success to use/modify the script.

disableSerialization;

private ["_idd", "_display"];
_idd = getNumber(configFile >> "RscDisplayOptions" >> "idd");
_display = findDisplay _idd;
_display closeDisplay 2;

  • spawn

{
sleep 0.005;
playScriptedMission ["limnos", {private ["_handle"]; _handle = execVM "\A3\missions_f\data\scenes\credits1\init.sqf"}, configFile >> "CfgMissions" >> "Cutscenes" >> "Credits"];

madbull added a comment to T79203: KeyDown UI event handler does not provide correct code for key combination (only single key press).

Repro code of my previous note :

Bind the MiniMapToggle to a single key and a combo key.

Use these keys on the game display (46) :

> The single key is working for actionKeys and inputAction.

> The combo key is NOT working for actionKeys. BUT working for inputAction.

Open the main map (display 12) and do the same test :

> The single key is working for actionKeys. BUT NOT working for inputAction.

> The combo key is NOT working for actionKeys NOR inputAction.

(findDisplay 46) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown",
{
systemChat format
[

		"GAME DISPLAY => INPUT : %1 @ KEYS : %2",
		inputAction "MiniMapToggle" > 0,
		(_this select 1) in actionKeys "MiniMapToggle"

];
false
}];
(findDisplay 12) displayAddEventHandler ["KeyDown",

madbull added a comment to T79203: KeyDown UI event handler does not provide correct code for key combination (only single key press).

Problem confirmed.

  1. actionKeys not reliable :

actionKeys can not be used for key combos :

actionKeys "MiniMapToggle" => [39, 4.86539e+008]
39 => ";"
4.86539e+008 <=> "Ctrl + M"

I presume the value contains a binary codification for Ctrl/Alt/Shift. We need at least the scheme of codification on the Biki to handle with it.

  1. Non working solution :

Using (inputAction "MiniMapToggle" > 0) in the KeyDown event handler is not reliable.
If a dialog is opened (like the main map), the value returned by this command is most of time equal to 0.

Crash confirmed on Win7 64bits.
It is not directly linked to BIS_fnc_setHeight but to the setPos* commands.

On my computer crashed appears for player's altitude equals to 1000000000000 or 10000000000000.
Just before the CTD, arma3.exe uses all the available memory (4GB).

Thanks.

madbull added a comment to T77946: AI walk through setPos'd static objects [repro mission].

Here is a method to force the Arma engine to take into account de setPos'd static object for the AI pathfinding :

It is a code to be executed on each computer. It creates a helipad at the exact same position than the setPos'd object.
It is a trick to force the Arma engine to run its routine which updates the obstacles for AI pathfinding.
I tested it long time and it works, even in multiplayer.

// Force to take into account the obstacles for AI pathfinding (to be executed on each computer)
if (_object isKindOf "Static") then
{
_object spawn
{

		/*
		 * First helipad is to get the exact reference position of the object.
		 * 
		 * Second helipad will cause the execution of the engine's routine
		 * updating the pathfinding obstacles for this position.
		 */
		private ["_helipad1", "_helipad2"];
		sleep 0.7;
		_helipad1 = "Land_HelipadEmpty_F" createVehicleLocal (getPosATL _this);
		_helipad1 attachTo [_this, [0,0,0]];
		sleep 0.3;
		_helipad2 = "Land_HelipadEmpty_F" createVehicleLocal (getPosATL _helipad1);
		_helipad2 setPosASL getPosASL _helipad1;
		sleep 1;
		detach _helipad1;
		deleteVehicle _helipad1;
		deleteVehicle _helipad2;

};
};

madbull added a comment to T77946: AI walk through setPos'd static objects [repro mission].

Hello oukej,

Thanks for the clarification about "reviewed" and "acknowledged" :) It was not clear for me.

About the reported issue, here is a suggestion :

I assume there is an engine's function that update a data structure which contains all the
"Static" obstacles for AI path finding.
As you said, this function is probably called after the mission init to take into account the setPos in object's init lines.

If I'm right, maybe adding a SQF scripting command named "commitStaticObstacles", which calls the engine's function should be a very nice solution :)
So we can choose (on SQF-side) to update the data structure when the update should be needed.
(The command has local effect and takes no argument.)

Regards

madbull added a comment to T77569: Missing of scripting command : damageAllowed object.

@Killzone_Kid :
I had two different needs about the invulnerability :

  • Be invulnerable when a condition NOT depending of the future damage events is true -> I succeed easily with allowDamage
  • Compute a condition depending of the damage event context to know if the current Damage Event has to be ignored -> I succeed hardly with HandleDamage EH.

The two needs have been fullfilled. So I'm personnaly OK :)
The first need is not perfect because doing "allowDamage true" at the end may do vulnerable an object which has been set invulnerable by another script or by the mission maker.
The second need was hard due to the getHit missing but never mind.
I used some tricks and it is not 100% perfect.

@SilentSpike :

Couldn't you use the setVariable command when changing the damage allowance in the provided example?

Of course if there is only my script running on Arma. But we need the command to ensure compatibility between other scripts and with the mission maker choices in the initialization line (if he adds "allowDamage false" on specific objects).

May 10 2016, 8:29 AM · Arma 3
madbull added a comment to T77569: Missing of scripting command : damageAllowed object.

Note :
Using (then removing) the event handler HandleDamage to return 0 is not a viable solution.
Because returning 0 doesn't only make it invulnerable, but also do a "setDamage 0".
In addition, the missing of the "getHit" command makes difficult/impossible to keep the health status properly.

madbull added a comment to T77569: Missing of scripting command : damageAllowed object.

Thanks for your comments. I'm agree for the command name, isDamageAllowed is clearer.

Although I personally don't see the need for such command

What do you suggest ? :) You have a better solution to make temporary an object indestructible (without "corrupting" its current damage state) ?

madbull added a comment to T76620: getHit command.

It works good. Thanks.

It if can help, here is how to ignore damage on a specific condition.
When selection is empty, we need to use the command "damage.

_unit addEventHandler ["HandleDamage",
{
private ["_unit", "_selection", "_damage", "_source"];

_unit = _this select 0;
_selection = _this select 1;
_damage = _this select 2;
_source = _this select 3;

if (<CONDITION WHEN NOT TAKE INTO ACCOUNT DAMAGE>) then
{

		if (_selection == "") then
		{
			damage _unit // No selection, return previous damage value
		}
		else
		{
			_unit getHit _selection // Return previous getHit value
		};

}; // No "else", returning no value will let other event handlers handle the damage
}];

				if (!isNull _objet && {!isNull (_objet getVariable ["R3F_LOG_est_deplace_par", objNull])}) then

madbull added a comment to T76449: weaponDisassembled event handler would be more useful if it provided a parameter pointing to the static weapon.

Absolutely agreed.

WeaponDisassembled EH should passed the disassembled weapon as 4th paramter.
This missing creates a potentiel bug in my project.

Would be great to cancel the weapon disassembly by returning false.
Or in a smarter way : to disable the disassembly feature by : weapon setVariable ["BIS_disable_weapon_disassembly", true]

May 10 2016, 8:00 AM · Arma 3
madbull added a comment to T76449: weaponDisassembled event handler would be more useful if it provided a parameter pointing to the static weapon.

The command cursorTarget can be used to get the disassembled weapon.
It works only for the local player. And this not a safe way to retrieve it.

To work also for units different from player, commands like nearestObject could also be used. But this is a very unsafe way.

BIS, please add this 4th parameter.

madbull added a comment to T76449: weaponDisassembled event handler would be more useful if it provided a parameter pointing to the static weapon.

I deduce that the event handler triggers after the weapon is disassembled

No, I thought too before testing it. But I succeed to retrieve the dismounted weapon with cursorTarget.
Maybe the near* commands don't work (too slow ?).

madbull added a comment to T76445: Request for command "getArtillerySolutions".

Absolutely agreed with this remark :
"Then of course, a command to determine the current charge setting that is selected would be nice (and an indicator on the non-artillery computer UI)."

These two points are a missing.

May 10 2016, 8:00 AM · Arma 3
madbull added a comment to T76445: Request for command "getArtillerySolutions".

The command inRangeOfArtillery returns a boolean, not the firing angles.

I know the mathematics are not complex (I implemented it on A2), but we still need a scripting command because :

  • we can't easily/accurately know what is the selected shell's charge (close, far, extreme, ...) and its effect on ballistics
  • the implementation is much faster and already exists on the A3 engine side

The high or low trajectory don't really matter as long as the artillery is able to hit the target.

It matters. The flying time is very different (can be 10 sec low and 35 sec high).
The accuracy and impact angle is not the same too.

May 10 2016, 8:00 AM · Arma 3
madbull added a comment to T76445: Request for command "getArtillerySolutions".

Note : "direction high" and "direction low" will be always the same value with the arma ballistics.
But using this returned array format is more accurate and pratical (empty sub-array means "solution not exists").

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.
