Hey guys i,m Menno 19 years old and i have a question
I searched and tried everything but nothing helps :(

Can somebody please explain how to install gcam for arma 2 arrowhead ??? :)
But please step by step because i,m not so good in installing those things , i would like that somebody also explains how to activate it in game.

I hope you can also provide the good download link:)

Thank you guys and i hope it works asap so that i can start editing......
I already watched the readme file but this isnt a good guide, same for all the forum search results ....

Kind regards

Menno

Moved to hardware/software. I dont see what a software program has to do with OA and or custom addons.

Additonally, here on Armaholic we require people to make descriptive topic titles. "please help me asap !!! " certainly is not such.
And I always wonder why people feel the need to add "asap", are you going to not be able to do anything waiting for a decent ammount of time?
Anyway, topic title changed.

Also, I wonder........why do you need a downloadlink to the program when you already read the readme and all forum topics?

So, you are talking about that script? Glad you actually take the time to confirm that. *CRAZY*

As for the installation:
Installation:
It comes with a mission as a demo version. Extract the folder to your ArmA2\other Profiles\Yournick\Missions and load it in the editor.

Where does it say you have to install this in the root? Additonally you might want to take a look at the example mission? An example mission is included with these kind of scripts so you can see how it works.

** moved to scripting section, lets hope this is the correct section now.

Man! Bumping your thread 3 times is not going to work! Try reading the ArmaHolic rules first!

Rule: [2.14] No 'bumping.'

Anyway, to answer your question .. Put the folder "gcam" in to your ArmA2 game directory! make sure that is
with the addons folder inside that, inside the addon folder you should have a file called "gcam.pbo" if that is correct
then your ready to go.

Put the this is your target line:
"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2.exe" -mod=@gcam
[Or to however your line should be, that above is to my game on the C drive! maybe yours is different.]

Now, ingame ... go in to the editor and make a unit, in his init line put this:
player addAction [ "GCam", "gcam.sqf" ]; player addAction [ "GCam Auto", "gcam_auto.sqf" ]; handle = [] execVM "gcam.sqf"
YOU DO NEED the script in your mission folder for this to work!

That should be it... remember not to dump the thread anymore!

Well in the @gcam folder you have 2 things, "addon version" or "scripted version"
I tested this out and im sure the author of the mod didnt mention that its scripted only!
because when using the "addon version" even with the commands
northing works! then I tried them both together and it worked! so, have the "addon version"
in your addons folder then put the "scripted version" demo mission named "gcam10_13.Desert_E"
into your "ArmA2\other Profiles\Yournick\Missions" and then you can see how its done in the demo.

Now you can also work from this to make it in to your own missions etc ... you know?

Ps: have you contacted the mod author? maybe you should contact him and let him know about this
post so that he could give us some advise on what we or you are doing wrong!
