How to add mods to search path?

Post by Cooper242 » Sun May 20, 2018 7:00 pm

In my report file, I see

21:52:30 Arma 3 Laws of War | orange | true | GAME DIR | ef1cd56c40b4d010daf1fe1381a0d5cba5ee8


So, it can't find the mods I uploaded into a custom folder I created called "nightstalkermods"

Is there a way to add that to the path so it looks there on startup?

You use the following startup parameter to load a mod:

Code: Select all

-mod=MOD_TO_BE_LOADED
A serversided mod will be loaded with the following comand:

Code: Select all

-servermod=MOD_TO_BE_LOADED
In our example:
-mod=nightstalkermods\@CBA_A3
(Which will look for the mod CBA in your server root folder, within the nightstalkermods folder. You can define any path you want).

The fields Caliban55 mentions can be found on the Server Control tab of your game server control panel. If you have a large number of mods (or if you just want to), you can also use a parameters.txt file. We have a guide for this here:

Thank you, that is helpful.

Is there any trick to getting the server to show up in Steam browser and Arma3 Launcher?

The server should be automatically reconized by Steam's server browser/A3 launcher.

Do you have any firewall active? Please post your server config and your launch parameters (maybe also BattlEye config).
