Arma 3 introduces new debriefing screen style. It completely replaces the old Briefing.html system which is no longer supported.


Mission debriefing is displayed automatically upon mission end, unless the debriefing entry is set to 0 in Description.ext.

In order to show a closing shot, you have to use BIS_fnc_endMission / BIS_fnc_endMissionServer instead of calling scripting commands endMission / failMission directly:

// Singleplayer / client-side "end1" call BIS_fnc_endMission;
// Multiplayer / server-side ["end1"] remoteExec ["BIS_fnc_endMission"]; // post Arma 3 v1.50 "end1" call BIS_fnc_endMissionServer; // pre Arma 3 v1.50



config.cpp or description.ext:

class CfgDebriefing
	class End1
		title = "Mission Completed";
		subtitle = "";
		description = "You successfully rescued our forces and neutralized the spotters, despite being forced to retreat.";
		pictureBackground = "";
		picture = "b_inf";
		pictureColor[] = { 0.0, 0.3, 0.6, 1 };

Most of the params are shared both by the closing shot and by debriefing screen, see a table below:

  • title: Ending main title. Default text (MISSION ACCOMPLISHED or MISSION FAILED, based on the ending type) is displayed when the param is missing.
  • subtitle: Ending subtitle, further explaining the ending. Optional, no subtitle is displayed when the param is missing.
  • description: Detailed description of the ending. Not available in closing shot. Optional, no description is displayed when the param is missing.
  • pictureBackground: 2:1 picture displayed in the background. When undefined, loading screen is used instead (can be disabled by defining as empty string).
  • picture: 1:1 icon, used mainly in multiplayer missions. Optional, no picture is displayed when the param is missing. Can be either link to a texture, or CfgMarkers class.
  • pictureColor: Picture color. Optional, white is used when the param is missing.


In order to disable the debriefing completely, use following param:

debriefing = 0;

Default value is 1 (enabled). Debriefing cannot be disabled in multiplayer.

Default Lose Debriefing

In order to change the default loss debriefing (used when all players on one side have died in multiplayer, for example), you can override loser class:

class CfgDebriefing
	class loser
		title = "You all died!";
		subtitle = "";
		description = "Everyone is dead.";
		pictureBackground = "";
		picture = "KIA";
		pictureColor[] = { 0.6, 0.1, 0.2, 1 };

Custom Sections


class CfgDebriefingSections
	class Loot
		title = "Collected weapons";
		variable = "BIS_loot";
  • title: Section title displayed in horizontal listbox
  • variable: missionNamespace variable containing string to be shown. It will be parsed and displayed as structured text. When empty, section won't be visible at all.
