There is no pause for briefing
« on: 04 Aug 2010, 22:51:25 »
Hmm, I got intro in my mission, then briefing, which is loaded from init.sqf
The problem is quite simple: normally, there should be pause after intro, so that player can read the notes and continue on own will.
Immediately after intro ends I am on map and playing.

How to solve this? I did some missions for ArmA 1 and OFP and never had this problem. Maybe I've just missed a new command in ArmA2?

Does this happen when you Preview the mission from the Editor, or after you publish the mission to SP or MP, then play the mission from SP or MP?

When previewing from Editor, you don't get the pause at the briefing where you can read tasks, notes, choose gear, etc.  Only after you publish to SP, and then play as an SP (or MP) scenario do you get the breifing before playing.

What Johnnyboy said and...

... you may actually view the briefing normally, even if you are just previewing the mission in the editor. Press and hold the SHIFT key, as you click preview. Now you will see if your briefing works or not.

If it doesn't show up, check that...

1) You have included the briefing.html in your mission folder (you'll need one for debriefings even though the rest of the briefings are scripted nowadays)

2) Your description.ext isn't skipping briefings automatically

Yes. For some reason the engine was left in it's old state regarding it's detection of briefings. In order for it to be shown at the start of missions in Arma 2 and OA, you must also have a briefing.html file, though only containing the debriefing.

Never simple with BIS, is it? :D
