Hide location marker on map

3 posts in this topic

No matter what i try i just cant get the location marker on the map to disappear :(. I have tried changing the difficulty from ExileRegular to ExileHardcore but all this did was hide the cross hair and prevent me from using 3rd person. I had a dig through the config.bin file and found that in both ExileRegular and ExileHardcore the vonID is disabled so decided to make a custom difficulty in the hope that i could remove the location marker along with enabling vonID.

I added the DifficultyPresets section to my Arma3Profile file and changed the difficulty in Config.cfg to custom.

Spoiler

Arma3Profile file:

class DifficultyPresets
{
    class CustomDifficulty
    {
        class Options
        {
            reducedDamage="false";
            groupIndicators=0;
            friendlyTags=0;
            enemyTags=0;
            detectedMines=0;
            commands=0;
            waypoints=2;
            weaponInfo=0;
            stanceIndicator=0;
            staminaBar="false";
            weaponCrosshair="true";
            visionAid="false";
            thirdPersonView="true";
            cameraShake="true";
            scoreTable="false";
            deathMessages="false";
            vonID="true";
            mapContent="false";
            autoReport="false";
            multipleSaves="false";
        };
        aiLevelPreset=2;
    };
    class CustomAILevel
    {
        skillAI=0.5;
        precisionAI=0.5;
    };
};

 

Config.cfg file:

class Missions
{
    class Exile
    {
        template = Exile.Esseker;
        difficulty = "Custom"; // ExileRegular or ExileHardcore
    }; 
};

I have confirmed that my custom difficulty is being used by disabling 3rd person so know that my files are working correctly however i still cant get rid of the location marker on the map.
If i recall correctly back in Arma 2 days, to remove them you had to set the difficulty to veteran or above so i have also tried veteran but again all this done is disable 3rd person and remove the cross hair.
After doing some searching on google i came across a few pages saying that i need to add "map="0";" to my difficulty options so i gave it a try but the location marker is still there. :(

I am close to giving up and keeping the location marker but would really like to get rid of it. Anyone got any other ideas?

This script hides the player marker unless you have a GPS:
