I uploaded the most recent comand reference to

until we have it on the Biki

It is automatically generated so may not be perfect but I hope it will be useful already.

Thats cool!
Marek Spanel: [...] Every single element is well taught so that it fits together. So this is a significant change, because with ArmA 1 it was just random, really.
We made some units because we had to. There wasn't much passion from our side with the first ArmA, to be honest. This time it's different. (Videogamer.com Interview:)

Please BIS: Arma2 must become a TRUE MASTERPIECE - Not a middle-heavy catastrophe!

Wow, nice... And fast :)

Hmm, under Editor... I'm guessing this is future still, but very exiting nonetheless...

Unless my eyes are decieving me this comref contains compeletly "new" commands, said to have been available back in the good old OFP-days. Nevertheless many of them are unknown to me, despite seven years of OFP editing.

Example: FSM handle getFSMVariable name

I never encountered commands like that before, despite seven years of OFP-editing. Did I just miss them? Were they always hidden inside the aged OFP warhorse, even though they weren't in the public comrefs back then? Or are they actually new commands, listed as OFP commands by mistake? Or do I just have a hopelessly outdated comref on my harddrive?

It's not really that important. I'm just curious.

It appears all new commands are listed as 'OFP' but with a Version Required of something above 2.92..

Some things never change, you know :D

btw: In ArmA 2 1.01 and above there is a built in command reference in the the game. Surprisingly, I am using it myself a lot, very simple and convenient.

You probably know autocomplete using Tab but now when your are over a valid command you may press F1 to see its comref entry including an example which that you can copy to the edit field in the editor.

I often use Tab to autocomplete /eg. I start typing setD and press tab to get setDamage and I then click on the comand and press F1/.

Cheers Maruk.

Thanks! F1 comref sounds great, save an awful lot of alt-tabbing.
