Server target line probs

Recommended Posts

I run a little dedicated server for myself and a couple of m8s.

I have run into a prob with adding -mod= onto the command line

I think i have reached the max amount of characters allowed in the target thingy

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2 operation arrowhead\ArmA2OA.exe" -server -port=2302 -config=MyServer\Server.cfg -cfg=MyServer\Arma2.cfg -profiles=MyServer "-mod=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2;Expansion;ca" 

That is my target line that launches aram2 CO server with no mods

how can I launch it with mods ?

"-mod=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\arma 2;Expansion;ca"

afaik, parentheses are not part of a shortcut parameter in this instance.

also, -mod= should point to mod folders within Arma2 root folder, usually denoted with @ prefix, and not a file path.

heh. I notice -server in the parameters?! thats a switch to run the client exe as server.

I use the arma2oaserver application for server ;)

heres mine for example, running a single mod

"G:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2oaserver.exe" -mod=@CBA -config=server.cfg -cfg=Arma2OA.cfg -profiles=MyServer

heres multiple mods

"G:\Program files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\arma2oaserver.exe" -mod=@CBA;@RUG_DSAI;@NGS_Capraia -config=server.cfg -cfg=Arma2OA.cfg -profiles=MyServer

I place various addon combination shortcuts for server startup in a folder to direct server environment. :cool:

the ability to use the server app it crucial to my mission editing and testing process, because JIP is a bitch ! :D
