AAN News Scroll Overlay Function

Watch in HD

Here’s how to add your own AAN News Scroll Overlay.  First place the Functions Module on the map, then call the overlay with this code, in the init.sqf for example.:

title = parsetext "<t size='2.3'>Rabbits Overrun Zargabad</t><br />Thousands of rabbits are terrorizing local women in the Takisani town of Zargabad."; 
scroll = parsetext "Military Units across Takistan report dance outbursts are on the rise - A-10s have been spotted flying upside down more often than not - Missing M16 Rifles found!"; 
nul = [title,scroll] spawn BIS_fnc_AAN;

Thanks to Koni on the BIS forums, here’s how to end the AAN Overlay early if you don’t want it displayed during the entire intro:

3000 cuttext ["","plain"];

Here is demo single player mission which shows the AAN Overlay in use as part of a intro.
