9Liners and Notepad

Chief Wiggum

9Liners & Notepad is a client-side mod, that allows you to open a couple of documents, like a notepad or CAS-9Liner directly ingame.
You can simply open these documets by pressing the assigned shortcut and you'll be able to write on them,save them or clear them.
Once you save a page, it will be binded to your profile, which means, that even if you leave the mission and join a different one, your note will still be on the page where you wrote it down.

9Liners & Notepad brings the following documents to your game:
    -a CAS 9Liner sheet
    -a Medivac 9Liner sheet
    - a Notepad
    - a Gunship Call-For-Fire 5Liner sheet:
    - a CAS Check-In Breefing sheet:
    - an Adjust-Fire-Mission sheet:
    - a Fire-For-Effect-Mission sheet
    - a Marking-Mission sheet
    - a Target-Location-Methods Help sheet (no interaction)

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:

Useage as player:
First off, you have to press ESC and navigate to: Options\Controls\Configure Addons\9Liners&Notepad
Here you have to assign a hotkey for each document. Also make sure to assign the 'Disable Controls' hotkey. You'll need it later.

Once you've assigned your hotkeys, you're able to open the documents by pressing the hotkeys.
Each document works the following way:

Pressing the left arrow opens the previous page
Pressing the right arrow opens the next page
Pressing 'SAVE' saves the current page.
Pressing 'CLEAR PAGE' clears the current page
Pressing 'CLEAR ALL' clears all pages
Note: There isn't any kind of "Do you really want to..." selection if you press "CLEAR PAGE/ALL". So think before you press it!
Do a single click next to the document will enable controls
You'll be able to control you character/vehicle, use TFAR and everything else while the document is shown.
In order to release the controls of your character/vehicle and edit the document, simply press your 'Disable Controls' Hotkey that you've assigned earlier.
Do a double click next to the document will close it.
You can also close it by pressing ESC.
Each document will open at the page, where you've closed it.

Useage as mission-builder:
This mod uses the 'profileNamespace' command to save the pages text.
Each page has its own variable in the profileNamespace.

If you want so set each users text on page 1 of their notepads to "I MADE THIS MISSION!", simply add this to your init.sqf:
profileNamespace setVariable ["cw_noteblock_pageText_1", "I MADE THIS MISSION!"];
If you want only one user to have this text on page1, you have to run this code in a local script.
You can also use an other page for this! (Notepad contains 50 pages)
