Nice! Best Kestrel yet. One thing though, is to have the ability to choose my own Keybinding. Best to me is a userconfig/hpp, or a "Custom" key in the games control setup.

This is a really nice one.

Thanks for the reply! I will add a userconfig/hpp for custom keybindings and further configurations in the next version.

Edit: I just uploaded version 0.2

You can open it by pressing Scroll Lock without having any extra item in your inventory. I will add the item in a later version. And make sure you are using the latest version (0.2).

unable to get this to work.

disabled all addons, but the latest cba. tried using scroll and also tried changing the default key. tried using the sample mission on the armaholic dl page. tried installing and using the optional ballistics mod as well.

nothing happens. no errors are listed in the logs, either.

Will try later, but if that's the case then the config .hpp isn't working as I edited it to be sure it wasn't an issue with scroll lock.

@TheGildedGoat, are you running CBA?

@DrStrangeLove_EBDA, I will remove the userconfig/hpp file in the next version.

You can change the key binding in the controls menu (Configure->Controls->Configure Addons->Addon: Kestrel4500). Let me know if this does not work for you.

Error: "Include file userconfig\kestrel4500\kestrel4500_config.hpp not found"

BTW: same error comes up for the advanced ballistics you've made.

I'm using CBA 1.0.8.140725 (latest CBA according to PlaySix)

You need to copy the userconfig folder provided in the zip archive to "...\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Arma 3\".

Well, nothing's changed, but it's working today... config .hpp is working, cba setting the keybind is working, the kestrel is working.

Looks like it's a non-issue now :( sorry for the confusion.

Is this the standalone version from the bwmod or from someone else?

I was sad that the bwmod team does not included the kestrel into agm or made it standalone. So iam now happy to get a kestrel without not needed bw stuff.

The BWMod Kestrel will be in the next version of AGM.
