Need some help creation or filling up new sections? This is the place to look for volunteers.

Command Functionality Groups

Before I start classifying all the commands (something for which I could need some help too), it would be nice to get some more input regarding the group names.

Do those groups make sense? Should we shuffle them around a bit? Will they be adequate for the new ArmA commands? Please leave your feedback at the discussion page. Thanks! --Kronzky 18:18, 11 August 2006 (CEST)


Redirection pages

How to make a redirection page for an entry with a more proper name? One that makes you see the actual entry and the small text (redirected from ???).

Use #REDIRECT [[NAME OF TARGETPAGE]] on the page that should forward to the TARGETPAGE (see also Wiki Reference) --Kronzky 17:41, 27 November 2006 (CET)

How to use a radio

Some months ago I've read a minitutorial about using a radio commands. Then I've created a mission - I simply used command setRadioMsg, then I made a RADIO ALPHA trigger. Then I synchronized it with the requested unit WP, but the unit didn't wait for a signal and has started to move to the WP. Does someone know how to use the radio properly? Help me pls.

PS. Please note I'm from Czech Republic, so excuse my English ;) Thx

Multithread and variables management

Hello every one.

I have one question, that only BIS Dev team would be able to answer i think.

With ExecVM Exec and Spawn commands (also eventHandlers and trigger), it is possible to do multithreading scripting.

Now imagine this situation : on all soldier you add a "killed" eventHandler. In its script you put : EnnemyKilled = EnnemyKilled +1

If soldiers are killed one by one, EnnemyKilled will be incresed each time a soldier dying.

But what is happenind if you drop a bomb on a squad? Every soldier will die at the same time.

What would happens, if at the "same" time, in one instance, arma is executing EnnemyKilled to retreive its data, and at this same time, an other instance is executing (EnnemyKilled +1) ?

In other Words, if {EnnemyKilled = EnnemyKilled +1} instruction is called at the same time into ThreadA and ThreadB, is there a risk that this instruction is launched on ThreadB BEFORE to have been FULLY executed into ThreadA ???

Thanks by advance for your answer.--Giova 19:18, 3 February 2007 (CET)


Giova, I'm pretty sure the atomicity in ArmA is this:-

.sqs scripts - each line executes to completion and is uninterrupatable
.sqf scripts - entire function exectutes to completion and is uninterruptable.  However, descheduling can occur at Sleep or waituntil commands.
