Ok so I thought I understood this...I've packed several small mods before and I could load them just fine.

However, I'm trying again for the first time in a while, following the exact same structure, and it's coming back telling me "file not found".


I have the following as my file structure in my P: drive:




Within the addon folder I have included config.cpp with the following line, as per the Arma 3 samples, and the file basicdefines_A3.hpp also copied from the samples.

#include "basicdefines_A3.hpp"

At the moment this is the only thing in the config file not commented out.


However when I pack this (without errors) and load it into the launcher (...Arma 3\@modName\addons\addonName.pbo), whilst loading it tells me it is unable to find the basic defines file.

The same is also true of any other files I try to #include.

This tells me I probably haven't referenced it correctly, but after a whole morning of googling and trying every conceivable iteration of file paths I've decided it's time to ask for help.



Much appreciated,

Thread resolved.

Ensuring that the addon name and folder names were identical has fixed the issue.
