  1. Intro After using Arma for a long time and having my own dedicated server, I always found very hard to keep my mods up to date. So I used Flax's tool (FAST) to make the whole thing work but there was some issues. The software tend to be quite slow sometimes, some menus are not working completely and the command output was a bit weird. I ended up building my own version of his tool, since it is not maintained anymore, by translating the entire code into something more recent, fixed the issues I found and reworked the code behind. Download You can find the latest release below : 64 bits Version 32 bits is not supported for now. If you require a 32 bits version, contact the developer directly Extract the files somewhere on your computer and run FASTER.exe. I recommend creating a shortcut to avoid the hassle of having to find the program. Features General Features Improved UI from FAST Improved stability from FAST2 Easy to read and share config files SteamCMD Automation Install and update Arma 3 Server (Stable, Dev and Performance versions) Install, update and manage Arma 3 Workshop mods Supports Steam Guard and Mobile Authentification Import mod presets from Arma 3 Launcher Check for mod updates on app launch Multiple Server Profiles Save and load multiple server presets Supports all server config options Supports all server command line options Custom mission params Custom difficulty Headless Client support and auto launch Correctly displays mods in Server Browser Local Mod Support Reads local mods from server folder Include additional folders to search Automatic Updates Server status and performance viewer F.A.Q. For any question, please contact me on Twitter @FoxliderAtom or on Discord. Why ? FAST was already being reworked on with FAST2 but the project stopped since January 2019. I decided to create a rework myself. There is something wrong when ... Please create a GitHub issue ! It help me keep track of what happened and when it was fixed. It might also help others who have issues as well. Can you please add ... Uh yeah, maybe ! Create an issue on GitHub and I'll see if it's possible. Feedback Please report any issue you encounter while using FASTER on the GitHub Issue Page. Screenshots Notes Thanks to Flax for creating a really awesome tool for our Arma Servers. Thanks to BI for creating that game we all spend hours on.
  2. To answer that, intel says that the button was rarely used by very few users and was quite a buggy feature. I removed it to clear up the UI a bit. You can easily open your profile folder by right-clicking the profile name on the bottom since 1.7. If enough people require that feature again, I will add it back. I haven't see that feature on the wiki. I'll search that a bit and see about it. Should not be difficult to change tho Thanks for all that feedback !
  3. This is an issue I had a few times and yeah, I genuinely have no idea why. I managed to reproduce this bug but I think it's due to RDP. Maybe it's an error when converting the color of the profile names but IDK
  4. New MAJOR release today ! Update 1.7a Changelog : Added : UI Fixes NEW PROFILE SYSTEM FASTER_Maintenance module (check the wiki : https://github.com/Foxlider/FASTER/wiki) Load mods preset from html file into your profile Support of Arma3 Performance Branch Support of Folders ! Now you can load PBOs and Mission folders Support or OPUS Voice CODEX Modified Mod Keys behavior Network Config Presets Sort mods by ID or Name Fixed : Crash when adding a mod with a big ID (int maxValue overflow) Fixed some config glitches Fixed some network glitches NOTE : If you need a 32 bit version, contact me directly IMPORTANT NOTE : Please read the Wiki VERY IMPORTANT NOTE : You will lose all your profiles with this update if you don't run the FASTER_Maintenance Program. GitHub link
  5. ////// IMPORTANT /////// There have been a major delay in the release for 1.7 because of a few glitches that arrived a bit late. These have been fixed and it's been about a week with no bug reports so release should be arriving soon. MAKE SURE YOU READ THE WIKI ABOUT FASTER_Maintenance.exe FOR THE MIGRATION TO THE NEW VERSION OTHERWISE YOU MIGHT LOOSE YOUR PROFILES
  6. Update 1.7 also contains very important fixes about adding mods causing crashes
  7. Brace yourselves ! Tomorrow (or Saturday if I'm late) I will release FASTER 1.7 featuring the new Profile View and the FASTER Maintenance executable A migration procedure is in the latter to easily convert your old 1.6 profiles to 1.7 without losing any data The git repo have also changed : https://github.com/Foxlider/FASTER
  8. My least favorite bug ! From the Discord FAQ channel : 3. FASTER does not start anymore / keeps crashing ! Check in your logs if you are having issues about missing DLLs. The message should look like the following : System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Something.I.Gess, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=blahblahblah'. The system cannot find the file specified. This is a known bug. FASTER files are extracted in the temp folder while running and windows likes to "clean" this folder. Current workaround is to set the DOTNET_BUNDLE_EXTRACT_BASE_DIR environment variable to some path such as C:\Users\your_user_name\Documents\Apps\FASTER (refer to #faq n°7 for this procedure). It should prevent Windows from deleting the files. 7. Wait, how do I change Environment Variables ? Search into your Windows Search bar for "Environment" Then Edit your System Environment Variables > Environment Variables... > New... and fill the information like so
  9. It's far from finished but the UI changed a lot and should be *roll drums* FASTER
  10. Sneak peak of the new profile ! For more updates and previews, head to the Discord server.
  11. Just a bit of news for you all ! There haven't been any update for a while for a good reason : I'm not dead (not that I know of, at least) but I'm actively working on a whole new profile system. The current system was a clusterfuck of code and functions doing too many things. It was all working with sticks and duct-tape. The new system is a lot more simple and feature a realtime save system to avoid losing your settings if something bad happens. Also a few more design novelties and improvements. You can go check the progress on Discord where I'm more active (link in first post).
  12. I think this is just related to SteamCMD. It's an error I get as well sometimes. Haven't had troubles though. Are you having issues downloading content ?
  13. It is planned. I'm having a shitload of work right now and don't have much time for FASTER. But it's a planned feature. I'm actually working on remarking the whole Profile system and its view so... Yeah. Lots of work and lots of rework
  14. Edited Discord Link in the first post
  15. I'm working on it, actually. It's being tested by a few users already
  16. FASTER is not working with error codes. You'll see the crashlogs in the Windows Event Viewer Under Windows Logs/Application Some antivirus end up corrupting FASTER's folder and break it. I'm still trying to figure out a solution. I also noticed some users have crashes when their config files have been improperly edited.
  17. @rekkless I am so happy to hear that. That's the kind of message that keep me going
  18. @jacojazz It is a planned feature but for now I have absolutely NO idea how.
  19. Oops, kinda forgot to write the release in here. Thanks @CW4 Carrera
  20. New release today ! Update 1.5d Changelog : Added : - Added error reports - App signing Fixed : - Settings should now stay after updates - Fixed crash when launching a server from a virtual machine - Fixed crash when updating modlist if a mod was deleted - Fixed crash when copying mod keys if server was on - Fixed crash when refreshing server list - Fixed LauncherFile Import not working - Some UI glitches NOTE : Settings have to be reset for this update. They should stay for the next updates though If you really want your settings back : 1. Open FASTER 1.5d at least once 2. use 'Win+R' and open '%localappdata%\FoxliCorp' 3. Navigate the folders to get the folder named after the old version (example : %localappdata%\FoxliCorp\FASTER_Url_somecharacters\1.4.2 is the save location of the settings from FASTER 1.4b) 4. copy file user.config 5. Replace it in the folder named after the most recent version (here, 1.5.3) (might be in another FASTER_URL_ folder) 6. Open the file and replace all references of FASTER.Properties.Options to FASTER.Properties.Settings (Most importantly the XML tag around line 9 and its closing tag) 7. Restart FASTER Remember to check GitHub for updates.

  23. That really means a lot for me. It's really touching to have people supporting my work and doing what they can to make it better
  24. This bug is tied to arma and not FASTER. I'll try digging more in this though see if I can help
