Arma 3 DLC Content Licensing

From Bohemia Interactive Community
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There are various places in vanilla Arma 3 where DLC and premium content can and will be promoted (to non-owners especially). For DLC not created by Bohemia Interactive, please make that clear in the texts and media (style guidelines are available for Creator DLC developers).

This documentation is mostly useful to Creator DLC developers, although some selected parts can be applied to community mods as well.
  • Content Marking
    • There are 2 levels of associating content with a DLC.
      • Regular: any content packaged in an addon that is injected with a specific (of your DLC)
        • This content is shown with your DLC's icon next to it in a lot of the game's UI.
      • Premium: any content itself injected with a specific Steam appID (configured in CfgMods - see details below)
        • Injecting must happen during content binarization (P3D / WRP)
        • Scenarios can have their appID added in the Eden Editor general attributes (SQM).
        • This content is restricted in its usage for non-owners (for example by triggering promotional messaging or restricting some types of access).
  • Main Menu
    • There are rows of mod and DLC icons in the main menu (clicking them opens the DLC Content Browser or Steam store page in most cases):
      • Owned DLC
      • Non-owned DLC
      • Mods
    • Spotlight Tiles
      • Content spotlight tiles allow promoting a specific piece of playable content (typically a DLC's campaign or similar) and to access it immediately.
      • The center tile of the main menu is configurable (custom tiles with conditions can be added in CfgMainMenuSpotlight - see details below).
  • DLC Content Browser
    • This is a data-driven promotional / informational overview of every DLC and their contents (Left Shift + P).
    • It is configured in CfgMods (see details below).
    • Asset usage session / total time values require Steam stats in Arma 3 vanilla, which cannot be added outside of Bohemia Interactive.
  • Field Manual
    • Vanilla Arma 3 DLC has 1 record with a content overview in the Premium Content section (configured in CfgHints - see details below).
    • Each premium weapon, vehicle, or explosive has an individual asset overview record (configured in CfgHints - see details below).
      • These are dynamically updated to be slightly different to non-owners.
    • 2 special DLC system records are used (configured in CfgHints - see details below).
  • Expansions Menu
    • This is an old menu that still does show basic details of DLC and mods, but importantly also their load order in the game.
    • Its data is pulled from CfgMods as well (see details below).
  • Loading Screens
    • Vanilla loading screens will display DLC promotions to non-owners when a scenario is detected to be using premium content.
    • Its data is pulled from CfgMods as well (see details below).
  • Debriefing Screen
    • When a scenario has detected usage of non-owned premium content, it will insert a special debriefing page with countdown lock (based on the DLC Content Browser).
    • Its data is pulled from CfgMods as well (see details below).
  • Premium Usage Promotions
    • When non-owned premium content is used, a time-based promotion system kicks in.
    • The longer the content is used in the session, the less subtle the promotions become:
      • DLC icon watermark in the lower-right of the UI
      • Temporary full-screen watermark mosaic using the DLC icon
      • DLC asset watermark gallery in the lower-right of the UI
      • Center screen DLC pop-up message
    • Their data is pulled from CfgMods as well (see details below).
Use the DLC scripting commands to diagnose Content Licensing issues.


CfgMainMenuSpotlights

General information on configuring Main Menu Spotlight Tiles can be found here. They are typically configured in UI_F_ addons in the vanilla data.

// Spotlight sample
class CfgMainMenuSpotlight
{
	class MyDLC_MyCampaign // Your new class
	{
		text = "My Campaign"; // Centered text shown over the tile
		picture = "\A3\UI_F_MyDLC\Data\Displays\RscDisplayMain\myDLC_spotlight_co.paa"; // Spotlight tile picture (see details below)
		video = "\A3\UI_F_MyDLC\Video\myDLC_spotlight.ogv"; // Spotlight tile on-hover video (see details below)
		// Script code to execute when pressing the tile
		// In this example a filter is initialized for the campaign selection interface, and then that interface is opened with the campaign selected
		action = "uiNamespace setVariable ['RscDisplayCampaignLoad_filter', 'MyCampaign']; ctrlActivate ((ctrlParent (_this select 0)) displayCtrl 101);";
		actionText = $STR_A3_RscDisplayMain_Spotlight_Play; // Localized string reference to "Play" (used to be shown on-hover of the tile - deprecated)
		// Script code that should return true or false to determine whether the tile should be shown
		// In this example it is shown when the referenced DLC is owned, and its campaign data is loaded
		condition = "(123456789 in (getDLCs 1)) && ((configName (configFile >> 'CfgPatches' >> 'A3_Missions_F_MyDLC')) != '')";
		textIsQuote = 1; // Add double quotes to 'text' or not (typically used for campaign titles)
	};
};
You can also consider adding a new User Interface color preset for your DLC via CfgUIColors.GUI.Presets
Another way of promoting your DLC's content to players is a custom Welcome Screen.


CfgHints

General information on configuring records in the Field Manual can be found here. They are typically configured in Language_F_ addons in the vanilla data.

// Premium Record Sample
class CfgHints
{
	class PremiumContent // Existing record class for this type of record
	{
		class PremiumMyDLC // Your new class
		{
			displayName = "My First DLC"; // Record title (in this case the full name of your DLC)
			// Record body text (in this case using a header image as argument; typically containing the DLC overview text and a listing of highlighted content)
			// %11 refers to the first custom argument
			// %1 is a linebreak
			// %2 is a bullet point
			description = "Have fun playing with all the new toys included in this most splendid DLC.%11%1%2My Campaign - have fun!";
			tip = $STR_A3_CfgHints_PremiumContent_PremiumKarts2; // Record footer (this generic localized string is the one typically used for Arma 3 vanilla)
			// List of arguments which can be used in 'description' (typically images or control bindings)
			arguments[] =
			{
				"""<img size='9' shadow='0' image='A3\Data_F_MyDLC\Images\myDLC_FM_overview_co' />"""
			};
			image = "\A3\Data_F_MyDLC\Logos\myDLC_hint_icon_ca"; // Record icon (typically the DLC icon for this type of record)
			logicalOrder = 99; // Determines the order of this record in its category
		};
	};
};
// Asset Record Sample
class CfgHints
{
	// Existing record classes for these types of assets
	// WeaponList
	// ExplosivesList
	class VehicleList
	{
		class MyVehicle // Your new class
		{
			// The argument-based configuration is used in vanilla to mainly make it clear that existing localized strings are used
			displayName = "%11";
			description = "%12";
			tip = "";
			arguments[] =
			{
				{ "My First Vehicle" },
				{ "This is literally the most splendid vehicle ever seen in Arma 3." }
			};
			image = "\A3\UI_F\Data\GUI\Cfg\Hints\Miss_icon_ca.paa"; // Generic Arma 3 Field Manual icon (can be a custom icon as well)
			dlc = 123456789;			// Reference to your DLC's Steam appID
			vehicle = "MyVehicle_F";	// Specific asset class (used to display the actual 3D model preview) - 'weapon' for weapon records / 'ammo' for explosive records
			modelScale = 4;				// 3D preview model scale multiplication factor (typically kept as 1, but can be used to enhance small assets)
			logicalOrder = 99;
		};
	};
};
// System Record Samples
class CfgHints
{
	// Existing record class for these system records
	// The game may use these special hints in the Content Licensing tech
	class DlcMessage
	{
		class Dlc123456789 // Your new class (use the same format: "Dlc" and the Steam appID)
		{
			displayName = "My First DLC"; // Full DLC name
			description = $STR_A3_CFGHINTS_DLCMESSAGE_DLC2885201; // String reference to a generic message used in Arma 3 vanilla (incorrect appID in the string reference is OK)
			tip = $STR_A3_CFGHINTS_DLCMESSAGE_DLC28852002; // As 'description'
			arguments[] =
			{
				{{"OpenDlcScreen"}} // Reference to a mapped control binding to open the DLC Content Browser
			};
			image = "\A3\Data_F_MyDLC\Logos\myDLC_hint_icon_ca"; // Typically the same icon as used for the premium content record above
			dlc = -1; // Hiding the system record
		};
		class Dlc123456789FM // Your new class (use the same format: "Dlc", the Steam appID, and "FM")
		{
			displayName = "My First DLC";
			description = $STR_A3_CFGHINTS_DLCMESSAGE_DLC2885201;
			tip = $STR_A3_CFGHINTS_DLCMESSAGE_DLC28852002;
			arguments[] =
			{
				{{"OpenDlcScreen"}}
			};
			image = "\A3\Data_F_MyDLC\Logos\myDLC_hint_icon_ca";
			dlc = -1;
		};
	};
};
It is recommended to use stringtables with string references even when not localizing, so that you can easily use the same texts multiple times.


CfgMods

This is the primary configuration of a DLC (or technically a mod) and its Content Licensing for premium content. It is typically configured in Data_F_ addons in the vanilla data.

// DLC Sample
class CfgMods
{
	class MyDLC // Your new class
	{
		dir = "MyDLC"; // The mod data directory (the same as used to launch the game with -mod=MyDLC)
		 
		// A Steam appID reference (a critical parameter which links all premium content to this DLC - typically found in the URL to the Steam page)
		// Also used to build specific purchase URLs to the Steam store
		// Without this parameter, the 'mod' is not recognized as DLC
		appID = 123456789;
		 
		name = "My First DLC";	// Full name of your DLC
		nameShort = "My DLC";	// Short version of your DLC's name (used e.g. as title over the DLC Content Browser listing tile - 'name' is used when not defined)
		author = "Your (Team) Name"; // Author(s) of your DLC
		tooltip = "My First DLC is now available. Click to purchase."; // Tooltip shown to non-owners (e.g. on-hover of the Main Menu icon)
		tooltipOwned = "My First DLC"; // Tooltip shown to owners (typically configured to be the full DLC name)
		overview = "Have fun playing with all the new toys included in this most splendid DLC."; // DLC's main overview text (recommended to keep short and snappy - typically one sentence)

		video = "\A3\Data_F_MyDLC\Videos\preview_myDLC.ogv";		// DLC video shown on-hover in the DLC Content Browser tile (see details below)
 
		hideName = 1; // Hides your DLC's name from the Main Menu (recommended to be 1 - hidden - for Arma 3)
		hidePicture = 0; // Hides your DLC's icon from the Main Menu (recommended to be 0 - shown - for Arma 3)
 
		overviewPicture = "\A3\Data_F_MyDLC\Images\myDLC_overviewPicture_co.paa";						// Standard DLC overview image (see details below)
		overviewText = "Have fun playing with all the new toys included in this most splendid DLC.";	// Same main DLC overview text as above

		// Text appended to the bottom of premium DLC content overviews for non-owners
		overviewFootnote = ""<br><br><t color='#999999'>This content is exclusive to My First DLC.<br>Press <t /><t color='#19d3ff'>Left Shift + P<t /><t color='#999999'> to open the store page for more information.<t />"";

Reference

A reference to a specific config parent class and sub-class(es). The parameter is composed of an Array of Strings, with the class name of each level of hierarchy (a path).

  • It is scanned to fetch displayName, description, and overviewPicture:
    • displayName: overviewName, displayName, or briefingName (in that order)
    • description: description, or Library.libTextDesc (in that order)
    • overviewPicture: overviewPicture
// Examples
// It is recommended to use parent base classes as reference in case of variants
reference[] = { "CfgVehicles", "MyVehicle_Base_F" };		// Vehicle
reference[] = { "CfgWeapons", "hgun_MyPistol_F" };			// Weapon
reference[] = { "CfgVehicles", "MyCharacter_F" };			// Character Uniform
reference[] = { "CfgWeapons", "H_MyHelmet_F" };				// Character Headgear
reference[] = { "CfgWeapons", "V_MyVest_F" };				// Character Vest
reference[] = { "CfgGlasses", "G_MyGlasses_F" };			// Character Facewear
reference[] = { "CfgVehicles", "B_MyBackpack_F" };			// Character Backpack
reference[] = { "CfgMissions", "Campaigns", "MyCampaign" };	// Campaign
reference[] = { "CfgMissions", "Showcases", "MyShowcase" };	// Showcase
reference[] = { "CfgMissions", "Challenges", "Time_Trials", "MyTTs", "SP_MyTT1" };	// Time Trial Challenge

tryAsset[] = { 1, "MySoldier_F", "MyVehicle_F" };	// Opens Garage with the specific character loaded inside the specific vehicle
tryAsset[] = { 0, { "MySoldier_F", { "", "", "", "U_MyUniform_F", "", "", "", "", "" } }, "" };			// Opens Arsenal with the specific character with all gear removed and only a specific Uniform added, without any vehicle
tryAsset[] = { 0, { "MySoldier_F", { "nil", "nil", "nil", "nil", "nil", "nil", "H_MyHat_F" } }, "" };	// Opens Arsenal with the specific character with all default gear except a specific Headgear added, without any vehicle
