Quick Holster Key

« posted: Aug 14, 2015, 03:25 AM »
So pretty much I'm Porting over v1.1b to 1.2 from my mission. Anything I see that I think the arma community could use I'll toss up.

I will not take credit for any of the stuff I didn't do. SO , who ever did it ... THANKS!

Found this, This makes you able to press "H" to Quick Holster and Quick Un-holster.

https://github.com/Fractured-Gaming/Frac_v1.2.Stratis.old/commit/697821cf8c9793e3db0cf487d4c9980e1a7ff757

You can change the key here:

ps.  Anyone know why your player automatically dives into the prone stance when unholstering your weapon while sprinting?

Is there any ETA on when this will be completed/useable?
Thanks

Some time ago when I added "H" to holster i removed it from the actionMenu too, along with a few other things. It just becomes too cluttered.

As for the dive thing , not really sure , I think something to do with the animations I guess ... Sometimes when climbing a ladder as well my character lies down first, then gets up and does his thing.

What we REALLY need is a new / more intuitive action menu system - i would like to see something like the commarose in Battlefield that you can quickly flip between with a single hotkey and mouse  ! Now there's a project !!

Fking BiS need to wake up and move away from the crappy scroll menu system.

I know that the ACE3 action menu is a commorose, it's really neat. It even has sub-actions, it'd be really nice to see a standalone version. It works by drawing 3D icons and text in world space (like A3W player icons), and detects which icon is closest to your crosshair.

Oh btw I put it in a different section of onKeyPress.sqf as it is a hardcoded key.

I did mine slightly different ...

https://github.com/CRE4MPIE/ArmA3_Wasteland_1.1e.Stratis/blob/master/client/clientEvents/onKeyPress.sqf#L55-L73

I've also hardcored an emergency eject key ( this works great for vehicles too ) - just makes it easier to SPAM when you need to GTFO ! - you might wanna change the key to something else though. My default is DEL , next to Earplugs , I have on occasion accidentally clicked it when trying to insert earlpugs xD

I believe double space bar is default for emergency eject now... I can't quite remember.
