	player createDiaryRecord ["Main",

Init.sqf (note if you already have init.sqf then just open that file and add the code into it and save)

null =[] execVM "briefing.sqf"; // Briefing and Rules

Extra Info:

  • Use <br/> to add a breakline (its just like hitting enter on your word document but then in code). When I am making list of rules i mostly add 2 breaklines ex. <br/><br/>  so it would show up nicely with a new line. ( yes i have ocd lol )
  • player createDiarySubject ["Main","Rules"]; 
    • "Main" this is your group, you can change this to anything you want to be called just make sure when you add your menu (player createDiaryRecord ["Main",) make sure its the same name as well.
    • You can add as many as you like, just keep in mind that you keep the groups together if you want them in the same tab.
  • It works fine with exile but if you are using Infistar see this link: http://www.exilemod.com/topic/752-briefing/?do=findComment&comment=4761

How do you get it neat and tidy I have implemented your breifing script but its messy.....

 

what I mean is that when you got to a new line instead of a new line in the briefing is spaces it and places on the same line :/

if you want share your briefing code here or through pastebin or pm and ill show you what has gone wrong. it could have been just a simple word that got in the way. keep in mind the boxes arent big at all. its a fixed size so sometimes you need to add a <br/> so make it look all nice and neat.

test it with these

["Menu1or_so","<br/>

Homepage: www.blabla<br/>
Teamspeak: ...<br/><br/>

Serverrules<br/><br/>
1. Rule<br/><br/>
2. Rule<br/><br/>
3. Rule<br/><br/>
4. Rule<br/><br/>
5. Rule<br/><br/>
6. Rule<br/><br/>
7. Rule<br/><br/>
8. Rule<br/><br/>
9. Rule<br/><br/>
"]];

 

 the output is

1.Rule

[empty Line]

2.Rule ....

 

the problem on briefing is, if the statistic tab come, your briefing is away

OK Since I had to translate the inifstar trick in your link. I cannot seem to find that line in the code. Any suggestions when using infistar? I have the latest version 09262015. 

To prevent flicker, easy to _AH.sqf in line 1949 (the latest version), the

_lsize>  6

Change, then listen to the flicker.

For each "create diary subject" that it uses, the value must be increased by one. ;)

If it is not generally shown, tries times at the beginning of a briefing.sqf

 

 

 Adjust value if necessary, halt depends on the charging time of the clients.

Error when players on in the game and click on that menu:

Map Sub-Menu [4] size has been changed to 3. Found: ["Rules","Website","TeamSpeak"]

 

UPDATE: OK Latest version (09/26/2015) Line 1968. Change it from 2 to 6. Working perfectly.  

issues when Infistar is used

Line 1964 in your EXILE_AH.sqf

if(_lsize > 12)then  (where 12 is input the number of lines that you have in your Briefing)

                                <br/>* At the start of the game, spread out and find supplies before worrying about where to establish a meeting place or a base, supplies are important and very valuable.
                                
                                <br/>* When picking a base location, it is best advised to pick a place that is out of the way and not so obvious.
                                
                                <br/>* If you spawn in an area with no vehicles or supplies in the immediate area, DO NOT just click respawn from the escape menu, chances are if you search an area of a few hundred meters, you will find something.
                                
                                <br/>* Always be on the lookout for nightvision. they are located in the ammo crates, and there are pairs scattered throughout Altis. You can also purchase them from Safe Traders. Nighttime without them SUCKS, and if you have them, you can conduct stealth raids on enemy bases under the cover of complete darkness.
                                
                                <br/>* When you set up a base, never leave your supplies unguarded, one guard will suffice, but it is recommended you have at least 2, maybe 3 guards at base at all times.
                                
                                <br/>* There are very aggressive AI characters that spawn with most missions and will protect the mission objectives with deadly force, be aware of them.

                                <br/>Exile is a Player versus Player sandbox survival experience. The objective of this mission is to rally team members, scavenge supplies, weapons, and vehicles, and destroy the other players. It is survival at its best! Keep in mind this is a work in progress, please direct your reports to http://www.exilemod.com
                                
                                <br/>FAQ:
                                
                                <br/>Q. What am I supposed to do here?
                                <br/>A. See the above description
                                <br/>
                                <br/>Q. Where can I get a gun?
                                <br/>A. Weapons are found in one of three places, first in ammo crates that come as rewards from missions, inside of buildings, and second, Traders thru out the map, Safe Traders and Blackmarket. The last place to find a gun would be on the dead of players whose bodies have not yet been looted.
                                <br/>
                                <br/>Q. What are the blue circles on the map?
                                <br/>A. The circles represent town limits. If friendly soldiers are in a town, you can spawn there from the re-spawn menu; however if there is an enemy presence, you will not be able to spawn there.
                                <br/>
                                <br/>Q. Why is it so dark, I cant see.
                                <br/>A. The server has a day/night cycle just like in the real world, and as such, night time is a factor in your survival. It is recommended that you find sources of light or use your Nightvision Goggles as the darkness sets in.
                                <br/>
                                <br/>Q. Where can I find Food?
                                <br/>A. This game has a food and water system that you must stay on top of if you hope to survive. You can collect food and water from building within towns.
                                <br/>
                                <br/>Q. I saw someone breaking a rule, what do I do?
                                <br/>A. Simply go into global chat and get the attention of one of the admins or visit our forums, and make a report if the offense is serious.
