[Alpha] RTE for ArmA II

408 posts in this topic

I finally managed to port the RTE to ArmA II:

What's the RTE?

The RTE is 'another' 3D editor. You can:

  • Build missions and save them
  • 3d editor to place objects in easily in the world
  • Multiplayer editor: allows multiple people at the same time work on a mission
  • Game master mode: one or more guys have the ability to modify a running mission the fly depending how the rest of them plays the mission ;)

Videos about the RTE for Armed Assaut:

What's new in this version?

This version supports ArmA II. E.G. the new factions are now supported. And selfmade mission can get exported/saved.

Download?

Download

(Setup.1.5.exe)

The setup will install RTE Capture which installs RTE for Armed Assault and ArmA II.

A note for mirrors:

Don't mirror this file. The link on my page will contain the latest installer and may change from time to time. If you're interested to mirror some parts of the RTE, please write me a PM.

RTE Capture?

It's a helper which is required for the features of the RTE.

A manual can be found here:

RTE Capture Manual

Manual? Also for the RTE?

RTE v4.3 Manual

It's not up to date, but should contain everything important.

Why an alpha?

This version doesn't support all features of ArmA II, e.g. 'object composition' is not supported yet.

In short: There will be features added => Alpha.

Also this version has some small issues but those affect the usibilty only a little.

And those have priority on my bug list and should be fixed soon.

There is another advantage of this status: It's WiP, therefore feedback and whishes are welcomed and should be placed in my bug tracker:

Still more text?

*ehm*, sure:

Used scripts:

Requires CBA

Download!

Beautiful and complex scenery made by RTE is a child's play!

Good work. Can I suggest adding buttons that use setaperture so you can just set the aperture to one that suits the time of day you're using for your mission and then edit like that (to avoid the flickering that's a product of the fast camera movement typical in editing and can be seen in that vid).

Just an idea.

If I place a group down, the editor seems to lag up.. only the editor nothing else. Also, when I try and give a soldier a custom layout with this, I can't seem to give him any weapons.. I might be using it wrong but thought I'd say anyway.

Outstanding work.

:(

You're right with the weapon dialogue. Seems to be broken.

About the groups:

The lag occurs since you've selected a lot of units. If you unselect them, it will be fast again.

i0n0s: can you tell us more, how does the import into Visitor3 work now? Any changes from A1 version? I'll probably do a new map with couple of friends in MP, does the new RTE save all placed objects on host or still every client must save his work and send it to the "leader"?

When I run this it says I need version 1.14 of the application. What is that.

It's referring to ArmA not to ArmA2, but no idea why it's happening to you.

Are u sure u downloaded the correct version?

Version V

Online installer: Setup.1.5.exe

Offline installer: Setup.1.34.483.441.exe

I guess u need one of those.

Place a unit, start the game then press ESC. The last item in that menu is REALTIME EDITOR.

Done. Assuming you have put the @RTEditor in your commandline !

Yeah you need to go to "profiles" in the program before you press start.

So, did anyone get it to work online? We are 3-4 guys in my team which does missions. -making them together in real-time would rock so much.

Offline installer: Setup.1.34.483.441.exe is outdated, please don't use!

@gunterlund21:

Start RTE Capture, then Options -> Settings, is the path to ArmA II set correctly? Sounds like you mixed Armed Assault and ArmA II.

@MP usage:

I'll made a blog entry about this later the day. I'll put a link down here when done.

@gunterlund:

This is one profile, you can launch every thing from there ;)

I was talking about those settings.

About the MP usage:

I wrote the entry:

http://rte.jonasscholz.de/blog/2009/09/06/rte-multiplayer-usage

Should contain every information needed :)

@Deadfast:

After NVG comes FLIR, so maybe you switched to FLIR instead of switching the NVG off ;)

Sadly switching from FLIR to normal will take some time thanks to HDR. Moving the camera forces directly the change.
