tarciop added a comment to T80711: Easy way to significantly improve the clunky action menu.

Great ticket!
The Action menu mixing Player actions and Context interaction is one of the major flaws in Arma interface, in my opinion and I'd like to see the two systems separated eventually.

Here's my take on the separation.
The Action menu should be a fixed layout menu reserved to "Player actions" with no dynamic options altering it when aiming around.
"Context actions" should have no place in the Action menu and become an icon-only system.
A new key called "Cycle interactions" should be added (Alt for example) to cycle through all the available options in case of interactive objects with multiple actions attached to them.

Please, see this pic for a visual explanation http://oi40.tinypic.com/2rei80n.jpg
and #10847 for some other issues regarding the contextual interaction system.

tarciop added a comment to T73246: Make AI take point in formation (especially line, column or staggered column).

You can achieve this through the Advance, Stay back, Flank Left, Flank Right orders under the Move menu (1-2, 1-3, 1-4, 1-5).

These commands are cumulative: they will make the AI move about 50 m in the corresponding direction each time they are issued. So if you want a unit to take point 200 m in front of you, select it and order it to advance (1-2) 4 times.

Also, these orders can be combined: for example, if you issue a Flank order after an Advance one, the AI will move in a diagonal line to take point either to the front-left or front-right.

Yeah they don't leave the group.
Once in the new offset position, they'll move in sync with you as always.

@AD2001
basically, he wants the vertical stance adjustment system to work as "Cancel lowered weapon + Adjust stance" so that you don't have to raise the weapon back before going in low stand, high crouch, etc. (in case you previously toggled the lowered weapon on with 2xCTRL).

@Impulse9
remember that you can always raise your weapon also by pressing "Fire" (LMB).

Straight from Arma 2.
keySwitchWeapon("Switch gun/launcher") selects laser designator instead of launcher if the launcher is added in the inventory after the laser designator.

EDIT:
maybe the summary could use some rewording to be clearer and more concise.
I'd retitle it to something like "Launcher key selects laser designator instead of launcher" :)

The problem is it works even in the absence of available interactions since it can open the Action menu and work the same as "Use selected action".

The underlying cause is the same as #727: there are assigned controls hidden in the player profile not showing up in game under Options > Controls.

Workaround:

1)Go to your profile in My Documents\Arma 3 or My Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles

2)Open it with Notepad and find these lines:

  keyCommandLeft[]={30,203};
  keyCommandRight[]={32,205};
  keyCommandForward[]={17,200};
  keyCommandBack[]={31,208};

3)Delete ",203" ",205" ",200" ",208" (those numbers are the arrow keys, the other numbers are WASD)

4)Close and save the file

5)Restart Arma 3

@Sniperwolf572
Right, he just needs to assign E to "Use default action" under Options > Controls > Common, but beware!
If you don't press it at the right time (that is when the interaction icon is showing), "Use default action" brings up the Action menu anyway and can actually select actions once the menu is open.

tarciop added a comment to T69006: AI ignore stance commands when near objects..

Noticed this also in Arma 2.

In Commanding mode, many cover spots among the L-shaped ones only accept AI in stand up or crouch stance.

If sent to one of these L-positions via Quick Command ("Move there" order), the AI will be stuck in the stance they'll reach the cover with and won't be able to change it when ordered or even in case of danger and enemy presence.

But as the video clearly shows, the stance change order is actually memorized in the background and the AI will assume the ordered stance as soon as they leave the cover after a "Return to formation" order.

This is due to the fact that 3rd person view in gunner seat (no matter what the vehicle) is tied to the turret crosshair.
In the specific case of SDV gunner position, the camera should be detached from turret aim when the periscope is put down, i guess.

That's right. ToggleRaiseWeapon is kind of glitchy.
Pressing it to lower the weapon while moving (no matter what the speed: walk, combat pace, run, sprint) always causes a temporary stop of the character.

Also, in combat pace you can't use it to raise the weapon back (need to press Fire, which causes a temporary stop as well)
