ARMA 3 Sync

396 posts in this topic

Unlike ARMA 2, ARMA 3 mods are updated on a daily basis so rather than releasing a large addon pack every month we have decided that using ARMA 3 Sync will help us keep everyone synchronized with the lastest mods. It will also mean that the download size will be significantly smaller since rather than downloading one large addon pack every month, you will instead only be downloading the files that have been updated.

 

Tutorial

  1. Download and install Arma3Sync.
  2. Run Arma3Sync as the Administrator.
  3. Select the Addon Options tab and click the butadd.png.
  4. Now select your ARMA 3 installation folder usually located at 'C:\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3'.
  5. Next click the 'Repositories' tab.
  6. Click the butadd.png to add a new repository.
  7. Paste the following URL into the 'Public auto-config URL' field.
     
    http://arma3sync.gol-clan.co.uk/.a3s/autoconfig

  8. Click 'Import' and 'ok'.
  9. Tick the 'Notify' option.
  10. Click conect.png to connect to the new repository.
  11. Once connected, hit checkyes.png to check for addons.
  12. When "Check for Addons" is finished, tick 'Select All'.
  13. Click the dl.png button to start downloading the mods.

Slow Download Speeds - Written By Hallatt_88

I have noticed that once the repository has been connected and started downloading, the download speed is restricted to a slow speed.

The work around is when you check the repository for updates ect.. click in the "Advanced Settings" tab above the "Start, Pause, Stop" buttons.

Change the Number of Connections from the default (Usually 2) to the maximum you have in the drop down list (in my case 10)

In the Maximum download speed ensure that 0.0 is set in the box.

Click OK and start the download, it should then instead of taking forever it should take less time to download considering other users on your own personal network and bandwidth.. 

it worked for me so should work for everyone :)

Connection Dropping Solution

If you're having trouble downloading the mods through Arma3Sync then you can use FileZilla to connect to the location that Arma3Sync downloads the files.

Use the following settings.

hostname: arma3sync.gol-clan.co.uk
username: arma3sync
password: arma3sync
port: 21

Juvenile that is because there is a space between "http:// " and "gol-clan.co.uk/ArmA3Sync/.a3s/autoconfig" and it is not supposed to be there. remove it and it should work fine.

Updated with a CODE tag around it, should work fine now with copying and pasting it in to A3 sync

Looks good, so just a quick question if I follow the steps to update the mods and I have yet to update my previous GOLaddons and GOLislands pack from last weeks update will this do It automatically so to speak?

It will be done automatically, any files that shouldn't be there anymore will be removed and the new files will be obtained. Just make sure that your using your games installation folder otherwise you must move the userconfig directory from the documents to the game installation location.

  2. JSRS configs have been moved to a new mod folder called @JSRS_Configs. If you're using JSRS then you will need to enable it in your mod set.
  3. F/A-18 Super Hornet [updated read me file added to @GOLAddonsA3\mods]
  4. Arma 2 US Helicopters import Updated.

I have taken the JSRS configs out of the main addons folder because for people who don't use JSRS having these configs in the addons folder causes a few issues such as distant shots not being heard. I recommend that everyone downloads and starts using JSRS because it significantly improves the sound and immersion.

Download.

There is a bug with Arma3Sync version 1.2.38 where a window saying that an updated version of Arma3Sync has been released, but it never actually updates itself when you click ok. Download and install the latest version of Arma3Sync to solve this problem.
