Hey guys i was wondering if anyone could help me with a few questions i had, 1. Is it possible to have set waypoints for a vehicle but it wont move to them until a player reaches a predefined trigger? for example if i have my soldier in a Humvee(Mk2) driving and i want a jet to fly past when i reach a particular spot, how can i do that ? and 2. is it possible to have set waypoints for a vehicle but making it so that the vehicle doesnt move until the player/whole group has gotten in? thanks :)

Oh and one more thing, if anybody has played the "Operation Black Thunder" campaign (http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=11098), do you know how the creator of it made the writing in the bottom right corner appear like that when the mission started? that would be awesome if i could do that in my missions :)

Sync the trigger with the wapoint.

Give the group a waypoint, and sync the waypoint to the waypoint of the vehicle.

Here's a video showing you the waypoints and hold waypoints.

Basically I made it now that I saw this question, believe everyone should know how to do it :)!

Of course you can do like they said but here's some help as well. Just place one waypoint where they wait for you and then the next where they move to when you arrived.
Next place a waypoint for yourself at the position you arrive at and finally synchronize your waypoint with the first waypoint from the other squads.
