ARMA3/2 Launcher

A launcher built on the idea of less bloat the better.

It supports both A2CO and A3 as well as external addon folders for pain free storage of addons.

I also think its pretty. :)

Tip: Click the A3/A2 logo to switch between games.

Have fun!

Thanks for the Mod. Question, would you know why some mods don't show up in the mod selection area?

It is the new Mod CIA_SAD. I had correctly places it into the A3 folder as an @XXXX but it did not appear in the selection area for available mods. Another suggested I add it to an existing/working mod folder. I had hope to keep it in it's own but it works now. Thanks.

Could you either list how the folder structure or screenshot the folder and every folder inside it

Thanks

(Sorry for the late reply..)

Profiles are kept.

The selected mods aren't saved.They must be selected (added) each time the application is launched.

The parameters as -noSplash etc ARE saved to each profile-so i guess (not a solution/but workaround until you fix it :) ) if i manually place the mods via parameters window -noSplash -mod=@IloveBooze..i bet it should work.

Now that is very odd, could you perhaps upload your profiles/presets?.

On another front i have added A2 CO support to the application that you can instantly switch to.

As-well as a WiP mod installer that allows you drag a zip file of a addon onto the application and it will be sorted and installed just like it should.

You click the A3/A2 icon to switch between them.

Ok..maybe i have found the culprit

As i noticed from your screenshot..you have also filled the "description" window with 'something' i.e. "no beta"

I really not using more descriptions on my profiles beyond a profile name-so changing that it seems to work-and mods are kept.

So it's something bounded to description window..

Does your MOD Folder have an 'AddOns' folder inside it?

Now whenever I try to use it for some reason, for any mod, it says cannot find file, whether it's in A3 profile or Steam A3 file.

Hey there, still working on this next version will feature the ability to change A2/A3 paths without messing with other stuff, aswell as loading addons from elsewhere then the default A2/A3 folder.
