  1. Quick question: does FASTER set allowedLoadFileExtensions? If so, where can I add to this? Or is it something that is switched off as a default? (I'm running a small-scale private server for biweekly games.)

    Are there still up-to-date official RHSUS variants of these missions? If so, I’m afraid I’m not finding them - unless it’s a parameter that can be set.

    Ah, that’s perfect, thanks!

    Cheers! Quick follow-up question: there aren’t any Hummingbird helicopters at base, right? They’d be perfect for small groups and quick insertions.

    Do Hearts & Minds pros have any tips for newcomers to the mission, in this case a smallish coop group (up to six people)? Also, would you start with Altis or Tanoa?
  6. Edit: Sorry, wrong thread.
  7. Cheers, that's good to hear. I hope that's also what's happening at my end, i.e. the mods do update in the end. I'm hoping that if one of the big mods I'm subscribed to has a major update, I'll see the posts here and know to look out for it. It's less an issue for myself than for the small multiplayer sessions I run - if we suddenly had different versions of mods because mine didn't download properly, that'd quickly become an issue.
  8. I know this problem has been around for a long time, but I've yet to find a solution for it that works and that sticks: for the last few weeks, I've often had Arma 3 workshop content shown in my Steam download list - but it always shows "Downloaded 0 bytes / 0 bytes", and when I click on "View news", it doesn't show me any mods that have actually been updated. As it is, I don't even know if there actually are mods I've subscribed to that should be updated, and I don't know which mods those would be. Is there any reliable way of fixing this problem, or at least of finding out which mods are supposed to be updated, so I can unsubscribe and re-subscribe to them?
  9. We had our first session on the new server yesterday, via the new WiFi adapter, and the pings were between 30 and 50. Except for the guy in Australia, but I’m not sure my connection will help much with this. I think that’s reasonably okay, but I’ll definitely keep in mind your tips, Valken.
  10. I ordered a USB 3.0 modem that should give me faster, more stable access to the 5GHz WiFi channel, which the onboard solution couldn’t find. Here’s hoping it’ll improve things.
  11. Because my old server PC recently died on me, I got a new one. It's a better machine, but the way it connects to my router is still the same, i.e. via wifi. However, for some reason the ping I'm getting on the new PC is dreadful, somewhere around 250-300ms. (If I connect directly, via wifi-internal IP, I get pings of 5-10ms.) Here are the things I can think of that have changed: New PC Different wifi modem (before it was a USB modem, now I have a mainboard that is wifi-capable) I used TADST before, now I'm using FASTER, and accordingly I'd expect that the performance settings differ, as I'm not changing them manually What hasn't changed (as far as I know): The router settings The ports I've forwarded (I've just switched them to the new PC) The overall setup: mods, missions etc. When I do a speed test on my internet connection, I get much lower pings, but when I launch an Arma 3 server, I get the aforementioned 250+ ms pings. Any idea what could cause this? And any suggestions what I could do to improve the ping? It's okay for me, since I can connect within the WLAN, but I'd want the people I play with to have a reasonably good experience too.

    Where is the !Workshop folder?

    Okay, quick update: I bought an SSD that I put in the new server PC, and I then proceeded to move my main Steam partition from an external SSD drive (hooked up via USB port) to that internal SSD. In doing so, I noticed that the external SSD was formatted in exFAT format. No idea whether it's because of this, but once I'd moved the Steam partition (including Arma 3 + Arma 3 Server) and ran the launcher, voilà!, the !workshop folder appeared. I'm now thinking that it was somehow a problem with the external SSD and possibly it being formatted in the wrong format. Who knows - at least it works how! 🙂

    Where is the !Workshop folder?

    @stanhope: Thanks, that's definitely true - but especially when it comes to setting up a dedicated server, I like having one place where it's clear what mods there are. The !workshop folder is great in that respect, because it gives a symbolic link with the name of the mod. With the server tools I've used, that's been much easier to work with - though perhaps I'm using the wrong tools, or I'm using them the wrong way.

    Where is the !Workshop folder?

    It is. That’s also what I suspected, but nope, it should show hidden folders.
  15. Due to my old Arma server going belly-up, I’ve had to get a new server PC. I’m in the process of setting that one up, but I am running into the following problem: I was convinced that Arma would create a folder called !workshop in which there’d be symbolic links to the various mods. However, after installing the game plus workshop mods and running it, the hidden workshop mod folder with the symbolic links doesn’t seem to be there. is this something that only earlier versions did? Did I manually create that folder as well as the symbolic links and I just forgot about it? Am I getting senile? Any help would be much appreciated!
