Thread: Can anybody assist me with the Arma II controls?

  1. #1

    Can anybody assist me with the Arma II controls?

    Okay, so I am playing Arma II on low settings.

    I need help with the controls:

    When I make my own controls (I am using Xbox 360 Controller) - How come sometimes it marks down in red?

    Also, let's say I use the letter "Y" for getting in and out of a vehicle, and then use "Y" to reverse in that vehicle, what would it do? Would it get in the vehicle, or would it reverse? - This is so confusing!

    Also, another problem: When I got near a vehicle, a green list came up on the left, giving me options on what to do, such as: Get in vehicle, get in passenger's seat, get in gunner's seat etc... - How do I move through the list to select my desired option? - I don't know how to go up or down on the list!

    One more thing: If I assigned the same key to, two different commands, such as "B" to shoot and "B" to sprint, would I need to change the sprint button to Bx2? - Would I need to press "B" twice instead?

    Thanks a lot for all your help!

    I don't think you can use a Xbox 360 controller for all of that but if you can then it would be very hard as there are so many controls. For your question about getting in/out a vehicle you could have "Y x2" and for reversing you could have just "Y". I don't know how many times you can use one button at a time with that controller but on my keyboard its twice.

    Why did you change the font of your entire post to Comic Sans?

    ArmA 3 - GWAR3
    ArmA 2 - PCDF | Gossamer's Warfare
    PC - i5 3570K | EVGA GTX 780 ACX | 16GB DDR3

    ...Does it really matter? - Have you got an answer to my question?

    Maybe try and see what happens when you do the things you asked about?

    Don't punish yourself with a gamepad, use mouse and keyboard.

    Okay, I will try to use the keyboard and mouse, but can you answer these:

    How do I scroll through the green list that sometimes comes up on the left

    AND

    How come sometimes, when I set my own controls, they sometimes come up in red?

    AND

    If I set two commands to the same key, what key would do what? - eg: Let's say I set "B" for shooting and "B" for running, would the "B" key shoot instead of run since I set it shoot first?

    When it shows up in red, that means that button is already bound to another control

    Ah, thank you! -Does this mean I cannot use the same button whatsoever?

    I believe you can't use the same button
