CBA - Community Base Addons - ARMA 3

Recommended Posts

Ok, solved it. Answer was that requiredAddons needs to have cba_settings defined. The UI errors are because of the way I have RscText, etc defined within the mod. Now have to figure out how to inherit RscText, etc instead, whichever for whatever reason has never worked the way I'd expect it to based on other inheritances in Arma. But that's nothing related to CBA.

Ok, before I start with harsh critisizm, which I may have already rushed a bit in other post, can someone tell me is there a way to disable text  which points to "CBA blah blah" at the bottom center and bottom right of the ingame menu screens?
Without modifying the mod. As it is said I shall not have reason to do that.

The version info? Remove CBA_help.pbo

yeah that annoying stuff there.
Removing that pbo helps but cba_main would throw an error every time you start a game as it "cannot find CBA_help". 
Removing dependancy from cba_main config breaks the mod making it unable to find script_mod.hpp which is still there untouched. O.o

Just means you didn't properly pack the mod again. You probably removed the pboprefix.

Simply unpacking it and packing it back, without any changes to the files, will throw an error. using pbo manager.

Using other tool aka eliteness, creating pbo: "cba_main: 'Permission denied' "
Is that some kind of obfuscation?

This might not be a CBA issue, but post 1.86 update I've been getting signature mismatch with my own or any other server that runs CBA_A3.  I even signed the addon with my own key and added it in, but it seems the files in the keys directory are ignored.  The only other addon I can see that is affected is ALiVE or JSRS soundmod.

Doesn't look like CBA issue. preInit hasn't been called and that variable isn't initialized.

Correct. It's not. 1.86 is broken.

Not really arma's fault either. This has been the case since 3DEN was introduced.

Some mod is calling a CBA function too soon.

Either that mod neither has CBA in their required addons nor is it using the CBA preInit XEH.

or that mod is using a eventhandler that just fires before preInit.

Help! Cba is not working, it used to work before i installed CUP terrains and maps, I've tried everything. I've uninstalled all the mods, uninstalled CBA, and reinstalled ARMA 3. It just shows "cba_common requires addon a3_3den" and crashes, I'm using the arma 3 launcher to enable mods, i downloaded cba from armaholic. Please help, the game works fine without CBA

A3_3DEN is part of the game. Can't be missing if you installed Arma 3 correctly.

If anyone is still having an issue, I found a sort of fix: I started a new server.cfg with only hostname and mission name, I think verifysignatures = 1 was causing most of the problem.

verifySignatures=1 has been deprecated since 2011 in Arma 2... Why the hell did you even try to use that?

As I told you, it was a bug in the Arma update, it has been fixed with the 1.88 hotfix.

What? No, it says exactly what I wrote.

From Arma 3 use only level 2 (level 1 is deprecated and defaults to 2)

ah ok. I thought you mean in general the parameter verifySignatures is deprecated. You meant only the level 1 is deprecated. So 2 and 0 is still possible to use still right?

I can not select GBUs, CBU, BL7s, but anything else I can use. It happens only when CBA is in use by another add on. Does someone have a fix or can help me?

If the delay is set to 0 how the frame is calculated for dedi and headless?
