Mirror Mirror on the Wall !

Question

Hi All,

Apologies if this has been covered. I've done my pre-flight checks prior to posting and can't find any info on this. Part of that might be due to the fact that I need a mirror and yeah, try searching for 'Arma' 'Exile' 'Mirror' 'Object' 'Item' and you'll see a whole host of results.... mostly for a ton of Exile related downloads that have mirror links  LMAO!

Anywho. To the point. I've tried several 'fixes' in order to get 3rd person view working in Exile. All to no avail. I think I might be implementing old fixes that Bohemia may then have patched. Hell, I don't even want 3rd person due to the cheating you can do with it. However, lets face it, after a while Exile can get a little samey, and 'dress up dolly' is a feature that in my experience, gamers tend to like and will devote a fair amount of time to.

So, I'm sat there last night, with that face on... I'm an enterprise techy, so yeah, you know, that face we make when we're trying to find a solution to a problem that shouldn't be as difficult as it appears to be...

Then my missus came in:

Missus: Ok?

Me: No.. still not happening...

Missus: lol, you've been at that for hours...

Me: Yeah...

Missus: Why don't you just add a mirror?

Me: A mirror?

Missus: Yeah you know. What would you do in real life if you wanted to see what you looked like?

Me: I love you... you're a f*@king genius...

So... yeah... this post that is entirely a lot longer than it needs to be, can be boiled down to 3 questions and few words:

Q1: Is there any kind of mirror object in Arma3?

Q2: If so, how might I find this and incorporate it into Exile?

Q3: If this does not exist can we make it so? (side note, the mirrors in Hitman are awesome, just saying).

What do you mean you've been trying to get 3rd person to work in Exile? It works just fine out of the box.

That's odd. If I go into Arma3 I can switch views without issue. If I go into Exile, it loads me into 1st Person and I can't switch out. It's OK though, I get the immersion angle and all that. I also know others see the same behaviour as I've been attempting to follow their fixes.

That having been said... if you have any good idea's, I'm certainly all ears.

However, I am liking the idea of a mirror that you could perhaps buy from a shop or even craft. Any idea's in that arena?

You probably are using a difficulty setting on your server that blocks third person.

Thanks guys. I tried both of those to no avail. I'm testing as well as asking here. If I find anything in the code I'll let you know ;)

Unless you've added a script that forces 3rd person, the only thing that would cause that is the server difficulty setting in the server's cfg file.

Hi All,

Apologies for the delay. This is fixed, but unfortunately I don't know how. The cfg file was ok, but the issue persisted. In order to move forward, I ended up rebuilding the server from scratch.

Thank you for your time ;)
