Introduction

Scripting is a very important tool in creating good missions or addons. Scripts can be executed from a trigger, or in the initialization field of a player or object, or even executed inside other scripts. A script is a simple text file, with an extension of .sqs or .sqf. In Arma2, .sqs scripts can still function, although .sqs format has been deprecated. If you are new to scripting you should try to script in .sqf. Also, start here.

A simple example of executing a script in the player init field would look something like this:

[argument] exec "myscript.sqs" (for SQS scripts)
nul = [argument] execVM "myscript.sqf" (for SQF scripts)

As there is a very keen interest in the newly added ArmA 2 scripting commands, the following list was created so that fans could easily find these new commands:
