Add New Note | How To

The easiest way to use this function is to create a group, then add the following code to the group leader's init field:

[group this, getPos this, number] call BIS_fnc_taskPatrol;

The more correct way is to:

1. Place function module on map

2. Make one waypoint for group and put this code in Waypoints On.Act. field

nul=[group this, position this, number] call BIS_fnc_taskPatrol;

2.1 You can use triggers for this function too, but your groups must be named

nul=[group GrpName2, position GrpName2, 70] call BIS_fnc_taskPatrol; nul=[group GrpName1, position GrpName1, 150] call BIS_fnc_taskPatrol
