Greetings, comrades!

I was very upset when AH was gone. And this is so great that there are people like JerryHopper, who save the world)))

 

But I have some problem with this app.

In the list on the site I found many of "missing" addons that I have on my old HDD. But scanning says "0.0B".

 

Here is what I did:

1) Collect some of missing addons in 1 directory (some of them were in folder, others in archives),

2) Execute: bidentify scan -d "path\to\that\directory" .

 

What am I doing wrong?

example: bidentify scan -d C:\Arma\addons


but the thing is that bidentify, only does a search for files exactly as they were named in Armaholic, if you changed the name or for example if you simply changed lowercase for uppercase, it will no longer find it.

Currently I didn't see that bidentify could find anything if the compressed file name is different.

I have also tried to download some things from about 15 downloads that I tried only two worked.

Oh, so it doesn't check contents or list of files or something like that?

It is just check name of archive?

 

In that case, is there any other (more directly) way to upload files?

I think it does not check the content of the file because it never finds anything if the name is different or as I said before if you change lowercase to uppercase or vice versa.

if the name is exactly the same as it had in armaholic, bidentify finds it otherwise not, at least every time I test it always happens that.

Okkay, thanks!

 

Then I have a lot of work to do to remane my archives))

I already upload several of them

It will take some time

I found bug or something like that.

 

At the "Modules" tab for ArmA1 there is a single missing addon "PedagneMOD Italian Pack". I found it on my HDD, but it doesn't have name of archive in table on the site (just empty space), so app can't find this addon in my files.

That's right, you won't be able to upload it because the program doesn't look for it, the latest version of that mod is v1.1 and the name of the file is ASZ_ITAArma1pack_1.1.7z

I believe that everything was done based on some script that filtered the files of the armaholic downloads, of the saved data of web archive org, if you look at the none of the saved web copies of that mod you cannot get the file name of download.

Thanks for your work, JerryHopper!!! What a tragic and abrupt end...

 

Can the campaign category be added too? Maybe some users have campaigns still on their HDD, and there have been so many for A2 + AO, less for A1 but still.

 

I also have found some of my old ArmA2 stargate addons, they were never released on Armaholic though, only on the defunct stargateassautl.net forums.

 

What would be a good way to "archive" them more publicly?

ModDB seems like easiest answer for now.

Hey people,   Excuse me for my absence. 

Some stuff happened..  like failing disks - some of my personal data got lost,  bought a replacement... filled it up, and it failed after a week again.
So the authentication system i was working on got delayed,  and with that - also the custom upload functionality....

On top of this all,  My laptop-screen decided to quit on me. which forced me to use a external monitor.... but after 2 days that died too  - cause: my videocard got fried. 
 

And meanwhile i got a new job , so less time and no more daytime coding...      but eventually more funds for hardware!
So today i bought a new disk & laptop... and i guess i will be back on track in a few days. - so i can continue on the project.
 

I have a login-system ready for the bidentify website, and the bidentify-client and node have the option to authenticate too!
What's left is adding the functionality to upload 'new' data - and other functions so people can contribute to the system while keeping things in control due to the authentication.   
This weekend i hope to add some of the above stuff.


And its great to see people like T.Johnson offering help with vault hosting,  coz with the amount of crashing hardware - its vital that i finish the initial bidentify-vault code, and have at least 1 extra node running on a different internet-connection than mine.    But since the project is split in 3 parts (website, client, node) i have to switch between each part and prioritize what i add/finish first.

 

So, please bear with me - i almost replaced all of my old hardware, the future should be less 'buggy'  *crosses fingers* - i promise there will be a update next week!  

 



@icewindo adding these categories will be possible when the authentification system is implemented.

 

@a6bl4Hblu'  i am aware of this.  The possibility to upload this file manually, and allow the user to set the category will be possible when i implemented the authentification system.


@T.Johnson  i will contact you this weekend (*prolly sunday)!

Hello, I have some ArmA 2 and OA mods that can be used to save them, but the problem is that I tried to use the bidentify client and it told me that it was only for 64Bits but my computer is 32 bits, so no I know exactly how to help, the only idea I have is to save all the mods in mediafire and have Jerry download it from there, but I can't think of anything more than that.
Greetings from Argentina.

Upload them to mediafire, so we download them and can re-upload them to another place without problems.

Any update on this project or was it discontinued?

Can you upload them to mediafire/Google drive? I'm just looking for mods for ArmA 1 and I would be grateful to get at least some mods.

Coming out of the internet coffin here to wish a project like this good luck. It was very unfortunate to learn Armaholic closed without any warning or plan to back up files. If there's a way I can help by sharing files, I'd be willing to do so. I was mostly a single player person, so I only have content on that end. Most notably content released around ArmA Rearmed, which I believe only had its most updated version released to Armaholic.
