Hi all,
Ok I'm a noob at this and I need some help with this scripting stuff, me and my brother are hooked on this game and eversince we got it we are making good mission, we understand the editing part, but not so good the scripting part. Ok so first is there a tutoriol or some kind of script manual we can download? We have tried many scripts and by luck we got one to work but we don't know how,Lol! we try to follow the instruction to the TEE but it is confusing in some parts, For example this the exact instruction on the BTC lift script but it is unclear-*copy and paste---

Installation:
Put "=BTC=Lift" folder in your mission folder and add this line in mission init.sqf:
nul = execVM "=BTC=Lift\LiftInit.sqf";

lets say I made a guy in a chinook and an empty tank right, then I save the mission and find it in my doc under mission, open it and I have the mission name folder, open that and have an SQM file, now the instruction are tell me that I should put the line in a mission init.sqf file. but there is no sqf file avialable, only inside the BTC when I unzip the winrar file and I copy and pasted to the mission folder. I have found that similar problem on almost all the scripts.Can someone please tell me step by step the prosseces, only the scripting part cause I already got the editing part down good

Init.sqf are function files for pre-loading secondary scripts and if you intend on including additional functions all you need to do is create one and include it -edited with the additional commands- along side your .sqm inside the mission folder.

I'm fairly sure the basics of init.sqs/.sqf have been covered in most of the editing tutorials out there. ;-)

Or you can just type in youtube or forum search 'scripting tutorial' and you will have everything what you want.
