After the basic installation:
- run "@ASM\SideMap\ArmaSideMap.exe" (SideMap folder can actually be copied anywhere - make a shortcut for the .exe for easy access)
- let windows firewall recognize it the first time and open the exception (even if running local currently all communication is TCP/IP based)
- launch Arma, make sure @ASM is loaded properly on the initial screenDescription:
Arma extension that mimics the in-game moving map as an external aplication which one can lay in a second monitor or even via network on a secondary computer.
扩展到 另一个屏幕或者另一个电脑Included .pbo files: To do:
Support for more icons (player's group units, color coded side/faction units, vehicles, etc.)
Add support for markers (objectives, AOs, etc.)
Figure a way to deal with zoom levels and map scale (currently 1 pixel = 0.5 meters)
Map loading optimizations and memory footprint (test map uses up ~70Mb of RAM in a 2x2km "Desert" - no paging implemented)
Devise some sort of handshaking strategy between the running ASM instance script and the server running the mission (to limit information displayed)
Secondary: Mimic arma's gps unit (watch and radio! units) in the map.
Secondary: Given the added realestate to display information, all sort of status stuff could migrate to this screen (depends on a yet to implement GUI)
