_id is the Unique DirectPlay ID of player, and there are some conversions between DirectPlay floats and Arma Engine numbers.

MultiplayerEvent Handlers

  • _name: String - is profileName of the joining player.

  • Arma 3 logo black.png1.50 _owner: Number - is owner id of the joining player. Can be used for kick or ban purposes or just for publicVariableClient.
  • Arma 3 logo black.png1.96 _idstr: String - same as _id but in string format, so could be exactly compared to user marker ids.
Return Value:
Nothing

onPlayerConnected "[_id, _name] execVM 'PlayerConnected.sqf';";
Example 2:
onPlayerConnected { diag_log [_id, _uid, _name] };
Example 3:
From Arma 3 v1.49: onPlayerConnected { somevar = random 123; _owner publicVariableClient "somevar"; // this will define "somevar" to a random value on the joining machine };
