Each handler receives arguments in _this. we recommend to use curled braces for code only. after executing a = b both a and b represent the same array. Event based scripts There are some scripts in the game which are launched when a particular event occured.85 string constants can be written in two ways: using double quotes (like "Hello") or curled braces (like {a=a+1}).no arguments initIntro.

A local variable name starts with an underscore ('_'). All other variables are global. forEach. To overcome this limitation you can store multiline in separate files and load them using the loadFile or preprocessFile functions (the second uses a C-like preprocessor with // or /* */ comments and #define macros). Example: . You can use function private to introduce variables at any given scope. Script syntax Each script line may be one of the following: Comment: line starting with '.'. Example: _unit setBehaviour "safe" Assignment: assignment of any value to variable. Example: ~delay is equivalent to __waitUntil = _time+(cas) . exec and call define a visibility scope for local variables. Variables starting with two underscores are reserved and should never be used. http://www. It is used to keep the time elapsed since the script execution started. count.html 7/11/2010 . Example: _a = 10 Conditional: ? condition : command or assignmented. Example: #LabelName Waiting for a condition: line starting with '@'.SQS used for scripts). it is created in the innermost scope. while. Example: @condition Waiting for a time: line starting with '&'. Local variables can be used during script execution to avoid variable conflicts. If assignment is made into a variable that does not exist in any visible scope. Local variables A local variable is any variable which name starts with an underscore. &__waitUntil Command: any expression returning no value. Example: &endTime is equivalent to @_time >= (endTime) Delay: line starting with '~'. do. Each of the commands then.com/comref/full.This is comment Label: line starting with '#'. The recommended file extension for functions is .SQF (as opposed to .arma2. All local variables from outer scopes are visible as well. the command is executed only when the condition is satisfied.BIS Game Engine Scripting Commands Page 408 of 415 Due to the line-based nature of scripts it is not possible to create multiline string constants in them. Example: ?_condVar>10:_var=_var+2 Note: variable _time is reserved.

the whole expression results nil (an undefined value). Waypoints The Condition expression is used to determine when the waypoint execution is terminated. Boolean variable this is set during evaluation of the condition expression to the primary waypoint termination condition. Variables Variables have to be inicialized before being used. Variables may be unitialized by assigning it the nil value. When an undefined value is encountered in a field where a boolean value is expected.BIS Game Engine Scripting Commands Page 409 of 415 Triggers The Condition expression is used to determine when the trigger is activated.html 7/11/2010 . Array variable thisList is set to the list of all units in the group that the given waypoint is assigned to. Expressions must either be an assignment or return nothing (see type none).

When any uninitialized variable is detected in any expression. The On Activation expression defines an action that is peformed after the waypoint is terminated.com/comref/full. it is converted to false. The expression must either be an assignment or return nothing (see type none). This effectively destroys the variable as if it never existed. Condition must return a boolean value. The On Activation and On Deactivation expressions define actions that are peformed when the trigger condition changes to true or false. Array variable thisList is set to the list of all vehicles that would satisfy the primary sensor activation condition. Condition must return a boolean value. Variable denoting trigger can be created by filling in the name field. Boolean variable this is set during evaluation of the condition expression to the primary sensor activation condition.
