Hey I'm new to the forums, I am trying to create my own mission currently, however I want to use some radio chat in it. Is there anyway to use the radio in Arma 2 like the SecOp's manager does, for example to put the text on the screen and play a selected message from HQ? I really appreciate your help. If there is any way to do this please let me know. Many thanks.

Displaying text is fairly easy, just use the sidechat

unit1 sideChat "message here";


unit1 groupChat "message here";

This in a trigger will display under PAPABEAR:

PAPABEAR=[West,"HQ"]; PAPABEAR SideChat "Hi there";

You can now also define groups as something then have them "talk" under that name, put this in a units init in arma3:

In this example we put this code into a unit called man1:

group1 = group this;
group1 setGroupId ["Mission Command"];

To make "mission command" send a message we put this into a triggers onAct:

man1 sidechat "send a message";
