Special thanks to Bohemia Interactive for believing in it enough to make it an actual part of the product, as well as for being extremely receptive to my vision for this iteration! As before, this took a tremendous amount of energy to produce. I hope those of you checking it out find that energy to have been well-spent, and best of luck to everyone on their Altis adventures!

For those looking to purchase a hard copy of this, see below for ordering information. A version hosted on my site is now available free for all.

Those who purchase the full guide will also receive bonus content, which you can find listed in the index as “Premium Content”.

Arma 3: Fixing the Action Menu

This post is two things – the first is a video I created to show just how imperfect and finicky the Arma 3 action menu is (and by association, Arma 2, Arma 1, and OFP), while the second is some thoughts of mine on how it could be largely replaced by a better system.

As you can see, the action menu and attempt at a context-sensitive action menu system in Arma 3 are insufficient and heavily flawed.

The existing “action menu” is an imperfect solution and while it should probably remain in the game in some capacity for those special-case uses (particularly via mods), I believe that most interaction tasks can be better accomplished with such a “Use” key.
