Arma 3 profile (with role designation feature)
« on: October 09, 2016, 10:57:10 am »
This is a Arma 3 profile for VoiceAttack that I made for myself.

There is a video if you don't like reading.
https://youtu.be/r55_AaHHue4

It features a pretty cool feature that I like to play with called 'role designation'. It is a system for assigning military roles to units under your command so that they can be called using that instead of a unit number.

The system works by first assigning and then calling - something like this for example:
- [unit two], [assign AT]
- [AT], [Open fire]

It lets you forget about the squad bar.

Main features:
- Vanilla commands
- Role designation
- Efficient mode
- Feedback mode
- Immersive mode (i had to call it something)
- Profile speed
- Help by voice

My two main disclaimers, as I haven't had anyone else try this out for me yet.

The first is that I use a swedish keyboard. I don't think it should affect things, but not sure yet. I'll work those kinds of bugs out if anyone wants to try the profile.

The second is that it's not completely based off of vanilla keybinds. I am planning to make it that way though.

This is version 1.0. I use it when I play, but there is plenty of room for improvement and I have ideas for more features down the road.

Ok, so with this update to the profile I'm where I wanted to be with it when I started playing with the VoiceAttack scripting. This is going to be the baseline functionality-wise and from here it will be scaled with more commands.

The main thing I wanted to add is now there. It's called "unit focus". It let's you designate sets of individual units or the entire squad so that any commands you give go directly to whomever you focused on without having to select them first.

For example the following three orders would require you to do a selection of the squad for each one:
[squad] [halt]
[squad] [open fire]
[squad] [prone]

With focus it would instead be:
[focus squad]
[halt]
[open fire]
[prone]

It really cuts down on having to say squad, all or everyone when you are making movements. And during a  surprise attack, you can simply yell "get down" instead of having to call the squad and then wait trough the required pause before giving the prone order.

As for individual units, lets say two and four, it would be:
[two] [focus unit]
[four] [focus unit]
[halt]
[open fire]
[prone]

It's useful for when you left the bulk of your squad somewhere and they can handle themselves while you go and micromanage one or a few guys. It helps preventing giving orders to units by mistake.

I also recorded new feedback sounds. Because the old ones were horrible.

v1.2
*ADDED* It is now possible to focus on entire teams (thanks xon2).
*IMPROVED* Cleaned up the categories somewhat.
*ADDED* Help by voice now reflects the added team focus.
*FIXED* Help by voice for 'focus' stated that the word 'unit' was required for focus, it is not.
*FIXED* Calling the entire squad, an individual or a team now properly resets any non-associated focus.
*REMOVED* The 'show inventory' command no longer works due to changes in Arma. Use 'action menu' instead.
*FIXED* Team selection and assignment now uses the more robust F-key instead of the action menu (thanks Eric Barstad).

Right.

I'm still battling that keyboard layout problem in another project. It proved to be pretty complicated and arduous, but I am committed put that in this profile as well. It'll be here as soon™ as I'm done with it.

For now your best option if your keyboard language prevents the profile from working correctly, is to contact me and ask for another keyboard layout that you might need.

v1.3
*ADDED* US English keyboard layout version of the profile within the download. Better fix on the way.
*FIXED* The regular version of the profile renamed to include Swedish. Better fix on the way.
