Arma 3 Coding Basics


This guide will try to teach you the basics of coding. It will go over the main areas of coding and also covers camera scripting.

Sections on:
  • Helpful Websites
  • DataTypes
  • Files
  • Variables
  • Comments
  • Functions
  • Passing Variables to a script
  • SQF File Structure
  • Camera Scripting
  • Error Box
  • Clean Code

I'll admit I'm not a coding guru and don't know everything under the sun, so not everything about coding will be in this guide. Most of this was also written off the top of my head, without too much planning put into it, so some things may be missing.

I'm also no master of Microsoft Word and that is mainly why the PDF looks a bit bland (though I think information is more important than nice looking backgrounds)

My Opinion is also used through the guide, this is just what I think about scripting, if you don't agree then your entitled to your opinion as I am to mine.

Credits & Thanks:
A big thank you to the many people on the BI forums and Armaholic forums who have helped me over the years with getting better at scripting and helping me to solve problems with scripts.
A thank you to Bohemia and the community for putting together some good documentation on the biki, it has definitely been a huge help to me with scripting.
