PAxton submitted his pAx Description Builder application.

    Quote :
    I have made a simple easy to use application for making a Description.ext and it saves it in the mission folder you choose. It makes it easy to quickly get a mission up for testing multiplayer without having to go through what I consider annoying process of making a little file when your buddies are waiting for you to put your mission up and you realized you forgot it.

X39 released an updated version of the ObjectOrientedScripting on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    What is ObjectOrientedScripting (OOS)?
    OOS is a new script language that will be translated to native SQF meaning that it is 100% compatible with SQF.
    It makes it possible to develop modifications in an ObjectOriented way (thats why it is callen ObjectOrientedScripting ... ok i admit ... that was too obvious :P)

    Why would we want to stop using SQF?
    well ... its a quite complex thematic where most of it is personal choice thus i cant rly help you with this questions
    there is just one thing i can tell you:
    ObjectOriented Programming (in this case Scripting) has the benefit that youre (in theory) faster in developing scripts
    for some comparison, please read this.

    • Compiler: changed block native code
    • Compiler: Added "native(<instructions>)" specially for expressions
    • Compiler: Added SQF Call instruction
    • Compiler: Added missing detection for unsigned integer/double values in VALUE
    • Compiler: Added missing detection for >, >=, <, <= operations in EXPRESSION
    • Compiler: Added missing LOCALVARIABLE alternative for FORLOOP
