  1. INTRO After some time using and getting annoyed with the repetitiveness of SteamCMD, I looked around for a tool to automate at least some of process of installing an Arma 3 server and managing workshop mods. Having looked through a few options, none of which matched what i was looking for I decided it would be easier to build it myself. F.A.S.T. is the result of that, this is the first iteration and I will continue to expand and update it as and when needed. Thanks go out to Optix for his Remote Arma Server tool that gave me some ideas for my tool. Also, a massive thank you to Kju and Friznit for testing and bug reporting for me. PREREQUISITES Steam account with valid copy of Arma 3. Basic understanding of Arma 3 dedicated servers. DOWNLOADS AND INSTALL Download the zip file from below, unzip the contents to a folder or your choice and run the tool. Github Releases SCREENSHOTS FEATURES Automated install and update of SteamCMD. Manage and launch Arma server (TADST like features). Works with existing SteamCMD and Arma 3 server installs. Steam Guard support. Steam Mobile Auth support. Encrypts and remembers steam password.

New modern UI/ UX. Automatic updating of the tool. KNOWN ISSUES See GitHub releases. ISSUES AND FEEDBACK I'll monitor this thread as best as i can but I will use this GitHub Repo for bugs, issues and feature suggestions. Any feedback is also welcome in this thread. GitHub Issues DEV BRANCH WARNING Due to the available server builds on steam, to install a dev branch server you must install the main Arma 3 application dev branch then launch using the included server binaries. Due to the way SteamCMD works this means that any mods that the account used to install the server is subscribed to will also be downloaded and updated when using Dev Branch. Currently these mods are mot detected/ added to F.A.S.T. but this will be added in future. DOCUMENTATION Is currently minimal but will be updated, in the meantime here are is some basic info that can also be found in the "Help" section on the tool.
  2. 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? No. So, how can I start looking for reuploads? Head to workshopcrawler.com, paste the link to your workshop item into the search box and click the magic button. It's that easy.

  4. Hello, I regret to have to start a thread on troubleshooting, but I have expended all self troubleshooting options in hopes of resolving this issue. After reading through the various Steam discussions and Bohemia forums, I've not found a solution to the issue. Up until recently, I was able to host missions for friends and play missions that I'd subscribed to on steam workshop- Unfortunately several weeks ago, when attempting to run scenarios for myself or host missions I encounter errors "Steam Operation Failed"and "Downloading of the steam file has failed. Please try again" respectively. With or without any mods loaded, I still encounter the same issues which really limit my options for play. I enjoy hosting missions for friends and even playing some by myself sometimes, but now I have to rely on others to host missions and it feels like an inconvenience. I've tried numerous solutions posted on the internet, such as clearing my steam download cache, uninstalling and reinstalling ARMA 3 completely, unsubscribing from all steam workshop subscriptions and still I have this error. It was no quick fix, as ARMA 3, all official DLC and the combination of maps and mods amounting to just shy of 130 GB~. *Edit* I have also verified the file integrity Through this troubleshooting, I've saved some logs from the launcher and have prepared them for this post, but am unsure of how to attach the .ZIP file at the current time. I also notice that in my STEAM Downloads, I often have steam workshop content for ARMA 3 scheduled that ends up in queue or ready to download- that seem to contain nothing. In the hopes of fixing this, I've gone through the launcher list of mods and right click > Repaired each mod and still cannot find what causes the error, as it prevents me from launching subscribed missions even without any mods loaded at all.
  5. Lets say I am making a scenario. I use some custom mod unit in it. I publish to workshop, and in the workshop I add the mods the scenario needs. That all fine, but if a user forgets to enable a mod when wanting to run the scenario, he just gets some errors. How do I get arma to prompt him with message saying something like: "This scenario requires mod X and Y please install/enable those before you can play this scenario" Is there not some build in function that does that?
  6. The two Chinese modders steals other people's work and post them on Arma 3 Workshop: KICKASS and Yuliang. They DO NOT own the most part of copyright of their work, mainly models and textures. They get them everywhere. They know it's against the Steam rules clearly and yet, they still post it. I am not related with the original IP, but I still report them here after I noticed their posts on Chinese social media and forums. I hope BIS developers will not connive these actions and ban them permanently. Simply reporting them on Steam seems useless. As far as I know, KICKASS's items has been flagged and removed for several times, but the guy still upload them again and again. Here's some of their items, not all: VX MOD KA Weapons Pack LITE RAINBOWSIX SIEGE They don't know how to respect people. So, PLEASE, PLEASE remove these loots FOREVER!
  7. Arma 3 does not start with some mods. Tried to remove and reinstall mods. Data file too short 'D:\Steam Library\steamapps\common\Arma 3\!Workshop\@CUP Terrains - Core\addons\cup_terrains_ca_sounds_c_dummy.pbo‘. Expected -1046564610 B, got 23364 B Code: 0x000000FF - unknown
  8. Hi, Everytime that I launch Steam it tries to re--download all my mods. Which is rather annoying because: a) I already have the mods (my C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop folders is 80 GB!) b) It downloads 10+ GB c) Which then leaves my SSD with < 600MB d) Then it says that it is "Working..." on the CUP Weapons mod Any ideas on how to cure this? I've had A3 for several years and I've never suffered this issue before
  9. Hey Guys, I made a python script to automate updating my server and figured I'd share. I've only tested it on Python 3.6 but I think it would work for any version. Just update the directories and files section to where your stuff is located. The "Steam Workshop IDs.txt" file just contains the workshop item number and a human readable string which automatically gets changed to a lowercase name without spaces. It uses a symbolic link to add the mods to the server's addons folder instead of moving it so updating works without redownloading everything. I know theres a bunch of GUI server managers out there, but I don't like the complexity that adds and this way I can just SSH from any device to update/boot my server.

  10. Hi there, i just got my new PC and I would like to port like 130 GB of mods to the new machine. That would not be a problem, if it wasn´t because Steam Workshop is horrible when you move on. I only have 12MBs of connection plus due to the fact that, i do not live alone, i cannot be downloading all day, which makes the idea of redownloading the whole thing a real pain in the ass. I tried to put exactly every file on all the routes i figured out that the Workshop files are; and still don´t work, the game launcher does not detect them and keeps downloading. I considered the idea of just keep the mods as local addons, and deal with it, but the workshop thing is very handy when you want to update the mods. So please guys surprise me with something i haven´t tried yet, because I ran out of ideas. Cheers and thanks in advance.
  11. Hello, I'm sorry to post. I've read and tinkered with settings for days and there don't seem to be any clear docs on this. The basic problem is: I'm trying to allow my group to join the server via the vanilla launcher. But when they go to join the server, I can't get any mods to show up in the "Required Addons" section. Here's what I've tried... Mods are launched via the -mod parameter (of course) All mod's keys are in the keys folder Mission.sqm's define mods in the addons[] and addonsAuto[] array verifySignatured = 2 battleye enabled My server is registered with out unit page But no matter *what* I try, they don't show up in the required part. Here is what it looks like while trying to join... I believe my server config is correct or close to it. So what does "Server can't transmit all data; list of required mods might be incomplete" mean? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
  12. Steam Workshop

    Hello All, I've recently installed arma 3 on my new laptop, however the workshop auto downloads all the subscribed mods on my pc...... This means that it is overloading my laptops ssd...... Is there a way to: A. Stop the workshop downloading the mods? B. Download the mods on the laptop to another drive? C. Any other suggestions?
  13. As the title says, at random the game launcher will decide to "update" all workshop content and re-downloads it or says that its missing, even tho all the files are still on my computer. I have Arma 3 installed on my 2nd drive, as far as i got from different, yet incomplete forum posts, that is what's causing it. I don't know if it's steam's fault or the games, but either way the solution shouldn't be "move it to main drive" and "unsubscribe and re-download all mods again" because that's stupid. I'm not asking for help on this one, I'm just asking for this problem to be fixed, because honestly its messing over everyone that has arma not on their main drive for different reasons , be it storage or just preference to have all games a different drive. Thank you.
  14. Is anyone else having an issue at times when you search for a workshop mod to subscribe to, such as 3den Enhanced pages outside of the steam client has the mod, but you're prompted to log in - when you already are? When I searched for 3den Enhanced (Within) the steam client, the workshop pages within steam shows No results. However, if I search another page (posted at the link below) this page pops up from outside of steam, it tells me to log in. But I AM logged into steam. I emailed the support at steam about this before, and never got a solution. I was able to search all the addons such as CUP, Red Hammer.. CBA.. ect. And I was able to subscribe to them fine. But again, that was all done from inside the steam client a few weeks ago. But I'm not finding the 3den Enhanced addon from inside the steam client. This page below is the only page I'm able to find it, but the page below tells me I'm not logged in, but I AM logged into steam. Why am I getting privet pages outside of steam prompting me to log in? Why is that addon not coming up in the search option from with in the steam client? hxxp://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=623475643&searchtext=3den Thanks
  15. Hi guys. Creating this poll because 1) it can be an interesting information for any mission maker 2) there are sometimes some missions on the WS that could be interesting but too many mods are requested (IMHO). So, just wanted to know what you think about that.
  16. I recently decided to start making bases for my singleplayer survival modes. I finished one, and saved it, but the button to publish it was grey'd out. I don't know if it's because I used mods to make it, or what, but I don't even know if it's a thing that's been implemented yet. If anyone's curious, I'll add a link to download and poast screenshots. Armaholic is down and I don't want to upload a scenario to the Workshop so the forums sounded like the best place to me.

  19. I'm looking to stop the Workshop content auto-update. The particular issue: A friend comes round an uses a spare PC I have (used for my dev work). At home she* uses Steam Workshop content on her setup where as I like to do everything with downloads in an attempt to keep away from the Steam auto-update system (Who wants to be stopped joining a game because the Workshop content has been updated but the server still has the old version - and hey! I'm a hacking-fu black belt** ). She uses her account while she plays here. The problem is when she tries to start ArmA it wants to download all her Workshop content she uses on her own PC. Up until now we have been dealing with by nu-subscribing her from her content but that leaves her having to re-download it when she gets home! I'm sure there is some sort of thing you can do by setting the update system to only run at a time when you do not have the computer on. Not actually tried this yet but hoping someone will know if it works or if there is a better solution. S * If only : ( ** Really, if only : P
  20. Workshop mods

    Yesterday at around 7PM I had to Hard Reset my PC since Arma 3 lagged while logging out I sat there for like 30 minutes before I shut it down now when I booted up steam it wants me to redownload all 40GB of my Steam Workshop mods and took another extra 40 GB of my HDD space meaning I have 40 GB of mods that it can't find and 40 GB of mods that it want's to download because it is just too lazy to look around and to be honest it's pissing me off I don't want to sit and wait who knows how many hours downloading mods I have downloaded I even had missions I was working on but know I can't do **** since I need my mods for it and I would have to wait for the whole thing to download since you can't choose which mods to download and which not without unsubscribing from them. This is just ANNOYING as hell 5 hours spent in the Editor on a single project just to have this and the fun part? It didn't even happen yesterday I could freely do my stuff after the reset in Arma 3 after I start the PC from having a nice sleep it welcomes me to this bull**** so if there is any fix except reinstalling the game please tell me. Thanks
  21. Im a guy comming from mission-scripting and have been there for a while. I have now made a simple client-side gui controls script. The actual purpose of this script was coded with the "mission-file" context in mind. Now people asked me if i couldnt upload it to the steam workshop for easier installation and convenient use. I did some research on this but i cant fint anything relevant anywhere. Is is possible to pack a single script in an workshop-addon and expect it to load on every mission that it is executed with? When yes, how do i perform this?
  22. If I want to play a steam workshop scenario with or without mods, does only need the host the data or does every single player need the used scenario/mods. Thank you
  23. Steam Workshop Folder Lost

    Hello, My brother has been playing on my PC for a bit and for some reason has delete my "!Workshop" folder, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling numerous times if anyone has any ideas or fixes please help me.
  24. Hello to everyone that will see that topic. As you have seen the title, I have a strange thing happening with my Arma 3 Launcher and Steam Workshop. I just logged in today to see that I have to download 48 GB of workshop content. I want to mention that all mods are in the folder, my disk is alright, and to be exact, my Arma 3 folder has weight of 35GB. On workshop there was only one mod that was updated today, but it was just some 200 MB looking on the workshop. So I have moved the workshop update from the queue, so I can open the game. And right now every mod is awaiting for update from Steam Workshop and... this is on. (added translation on the green bar in case someone don't know) That is the thing that worried me. I haven't downloaded any mod named "move along. nothing to see here." and there is no mod like that in the mod list. I can turn this on, but I am not doing it for now as it looks really suspicious. (The name fits the situation really). I don't really know what is happening, yesterday everything worked just fine. I hope someone will see this! Stay safe, KC
  25. Heya there guys, so i have hit a snag with my server setup.. both the client and the server have exactly the same workshop mods signed up but when i try to join the server it says signature mismatch and i cannot join the server , went into the file structure and everything is exactly the same .. any ideas?
