[SOLVED] cursorTarget
« on: 17 Jun 2009, 19:33:30 »
Hey,

Anyone managed to get this working?

It's added in ArmA2 but the syntax it uses is wrong (or the command is dead).

Yeah, it works fine for me if you ignore the example:
Code: (run in init.sqf) [Select]
[] spawn { waitUntil { hint str cursorTarget; false } };
Note that it detects vehicles, units and buildings (even map-placed buildings), but not trees or bushes.

Can't believe how much effort I had trying to make a decent workaround for this command in A1!

Code: (init field) [Select]
glanceOfDeath = compile "waitUntil { cursorTarget setDamage (random 1); sleep 0.1; false };"; dummy = [] spawn glanceOfDeath;
... f34r!1!! :D
try { return true; } finally { return false; }

You'll never kill anyone that way, since you are setDamageing to random 1 (which is 0 up to, but not including 1). You'll also end up healing sometimes ;)

Also confused why compiling where you could just use standard function creation with {}.
Code: (init field) [Select]
glanceOfDeath = { waitUntil { cursorTarget setDamage (random 1); sleep 0.1; false };}; dummy = [] spawn glanceOfDeath;
or even simpler:
Code: (init field) [Select]
call { [] spawn { waitUntil { cursorTarget setDamage (random 1); sleep 0.1; false };};

Hehe.

I'm an SQS whore, and always have been - even in ArmA!

However I'm told I supposidly can benefit from SQF, so got my thinking cap out the draw. I do PHP where the kinda c++ derived syntax is very similar in places.

The commands etc are the same and most concepts of the engine I know, so just to learn that flippin' syntax!

Works great Spooner! Helped a lot :)
