I wonder if ArmA 3 will have the same scripting language as ArmA 2 or maybe they will implement a new language? If they do implement a new language, maybe it will be based on C# or C++ (Preferably C#)?
What do you (the community) think?
Well, Surely C# would be better? And its easier for beginners.
C# would also be my number one. Dunno if it is easier for beginners or not.
No other current game uses Java as scripting engine...

Just wait till the next Take On Helicopters patch, then we'll all know how it works.
Thanks Xeno. If they decide to release such a manual and i can be bothered to learn Java and i have time off from my studies then ill see about maybe contributing to ACE for ArmA 3?!
Btw i first learnt C#, i think it was quite easy. Much better than Java i'd say. Nice to see a fellow programmer here in the forums.
They picked Java because it has its own engine that can take every scripting language and output it to the game? I don't know anything about scripting but that's roughly how I understand it haha :P
hahaha its ok, dont worry. But to clarify it for you languages have compilers, which turn the code into binary for the CPU to use as instructions. Now if BIS has some sort of Java compiler which can compile code from any programming language into Java then into binary, it would be brilliant. Means, i dont need to learn Java. If not? Well, then life is tough.
