ArmaASync - New system to maintain needed addons

Postby watar » Mon Dec 03, 2018 12:36 pm

Download, install and start ArmA3Sync.

Go to the tab Addon Options
Image

Click on the blue PLUS sign (Add a new addon search directory) and add a directory where you want to save your addons.
If you already have most of the addons downloaded from Dropbox choose that same directory but follow the steps at the bottom of this post before you continue the guide...

Go to the tab Repositories
Image

Click on the blue PLUS sign and add the following address to Public auto-config URL

http://62.63.207.112/a3sync/.a3s/autoconfig

Image

Then click on IMPORT and OK.

Image

Make sure the Notify box is checked. This is to be notified in the future if there are any new updates to the addon-pack.
Click on Connect to Repository (right column, sixth button from the top).

Image

Choose your Default Destination Folder
Click on the green marker (Check for Addons) and wait until you get a Finished! message, can take a few minutes.
Check Select All and then press the PLAY button (Start/Resume).
This will take some time, based on the number of addons you need to download, your connection speed etc...

Just wait until you get a DOWNLOAD FINISHED message
Image

Go to Addons tab
Image

Click on the blue PLUS sign (Generate addon group from modsets).
Image
Check Gameaholic.se and click OK


At the bottom of the page make sure Gameaholic.se is set in Join Server box and press Start Game
Arma3 will start with the correct addons and join the server automatically.

If you already have most of the addons downloaded earlier from Dropbox you need to follow these steps and rename your foldernames to match the addons with the Arma3Sync repository and only download the updated addons and not the entire pack.
This will reduce your download from 50Gb to maybe 1-5Gb...

Open the folder you have your previously downloaded dropbox addons in and rename the foldernames according to this list.

Code: Select all
