GAM DataPlot


Plots graphs of live data series on screen.

Highly customizable (on the fly zooming and resize)
Compatible with spectator mode
Hide/Show option (L key) + Slow motion and pointer (windows PAUSE key)
Multiple series per graph
Showing analisis functions (currently average type only - data must be fed, further on will be optionaly automatic)

Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:\Program Files\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
64-Bit - C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam/Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\
After extraction it should look like this:
Steam\Steamapps\Common\ArmA 3\@your_mod_folder_name\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:

You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.

And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.

Included files:

Check folder DataPlotCoverage.Stratis for demo mission (shows how to setup the graphs and update).

1- Setup GAM Data Plot (choose position/size of main plotting area)
2- Create Graph(s) (involves basic options such as offset/size/margins/base color/scale and description of data to plot)
3- Create loop to Update Data to Graph, or alternatively update at your discretion
note: graphs/series are indexed according to order of creation, for now one must himself keep track of these indexes


Known issues:
So much customization has its setbacks, setup is currently a bit too verbose
Does not have default values for common options, all settings must be explicit and initialized

Future plans:
Option to invert data on graph
Option to switch axis scale <> data
Support for negative values
Support for additional math processing (interpolation/regression)
Support for graph reflowing (realtime replacement/increase in number of data points)
