  1. Sadly this does not work for rented servers. You need full root access to your machine in order to use ARA.
  2. Join a server by a link

    https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Steam_browser_protocol steam://connect/<IP or DNS name>[:<port>][/<password>] "steam" is a protocol which every OS knows, once you install steam on it.
  3. We had some issues the past 2 days with our server hoster going nuts and ham, but it seems to be gone now. Ara shouldn't disconnect from the masterserver anymore now.
  4. Searching by file names was/will soon be available again, however this only applies to mods uploaded to the Steam Workshop. However what I can do is make a small desktop tool that you put into a folder alongside your mod folder and it generates a readable file for the website. You then just go onto the website and select that "summary file" and search according to that.
  5. Yes you can, there's a dedicated server application your normal Argo gamefiles
  6. Please note that whenever you update your mod, each file that you changed will have a different hash resulting in less results for older reuploads, since they still contain old version of that pbo, but not the newest one. I will change the system today to keep track of hashes across versions so that, even after an update, you can still find older versions of your mod. Regarding Em: I don't know how many pbos the mod contains at the moment, but a just created scan brought up 8 reuploads, only of the paa image though. I'll look into as to whether this is a system error.
  7. Re-uploading mods on the workshop

    I will need to see if it will be required. It might be removed again.
  8. Re-uploading mods on the workshop

    What workshop item did you search for?
  9. Workshop Crawler Yes, we scan. What is the ArmA 3 Workshop Crawler? Workshop Crawler regularly creates an index of all available workshop items and the files contained within them. This allows content creators that decide to upload their content to the workshop to easily check for unauthorized reuploads of their files. How does it work? Each file available on the workshop has a unique identifier (hash). When you click on "Find Reuploads" on our website, the hashes of your files are compared against thousands of others in the database. Due to how hashes work, these matches almost 100% guarantee, that the files found elsewhere are exactly the same as yours - but in a different workshop item. Do I have to pay? Right now: No. Workshop Crawler might receive a more advanced background system later on which will allow it to even find repacked files, whether that will be paid or not is still open though. So, how can I start looking for reuploads? Head to arma3.workshopcrawler.com, paste the link to your workshop item into the search box and click the magic button. It's that easy. And what do I do when I've found a reupload? DMCA the shi* of the guy that uploaded it. But honestly, if you have good faith in the person behind the reupload, kindly ask them to take it down first. If that doesn't work or the reupload doesn't seem like a mistake, use your right and file a DMCA. You can do so by clicking here.
  10. In your ArmA Remote Admin installation folder, there is a folder named after the authorization key you are using. In that folder there is a config.ini file in which you need to add the code into which I've posted above
  11. I just added that feature, your client should automatically update if you have a running one right now. Just add the following to your config.ini of your server and update, it should then be using the development branch: [Steam] useDev=true
