  • WS Launcher (Beta)

    Hi all,

    We're pleased to announce the upcoming release of our Launcher.

    This will include a server browser, built in mod downloader for all the mods we are planning on using in our missions. We'll also be able to deliver news directly to you on your desktop as and when we update anything.

    As some of you are aware we've been working on our own Content Delivery Network compiled of over 25 servers around the world in specific geo-location critical areas.
    This includes, New York, Dallas, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Beauharnois CA, Roubiax and Strasbourg France, Perth and Sydney Australia.

    To download this now click the below (Stable):


    BETA BRANCH: https://www.a3cdn.com/launcher/downl...aller_Beta.exe

    Requirements:
    You are required to have .Net 4.0. Installed.
    A valid copy of ArmA 3... on Steam.

    Virus Total Results (Stable):
    https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/2...is/1436901534/

    Yotti Malware Scan(Stable):
    http://virusscan.jotti.org/en/scanre...eee8e8535f84a5

    By downloading and installing you Agree that;
    • This comes with no warranties, express or implied. In no event shall the owner be liable for any direct, indirect, special, or consequential damages in connection with or arising out of the performance or use.
    This comes in a installation wrapper which will allow you to specify the install location as you so choose.

    What then...?

    If you wish to start downloading the mods we're going to use early, it's recommended that you first set your ArmA 3 install path. This is located under "Settings".
    Once done, select "Downloads". Allow the files to download and extract. A Green version number will show that the required files are up-to-date, Red will indicate that an update has been released and you should download/install/update.

    Common Problems or Questions.

    For a detailed question and answer thread proceed to: https://forums.arma.su/forum/main-ca...asteland-f-a-q

    Anti-Virus Auto Sandboxing. If when you go to "Settings" and the default downloads path does not exist it is more than likely you have software on your machine preventing the creation of this and some sort of Sandboxed Redirect occurred. You should allow the application in your AV and or exclude it from Auto Sandboxing.

    What if I already have All In ArmA downloaded and setup?
    You should be good to go, if you want the launcher to recognise this you can place a version.txt file in the addons folder e.g. \steamapps\common\Arma 3\@AllInArmaTerrainPack\addons\ within this file you should enter ‘0.0.0.3’ without the quotes.

    What if I already have the hlcmods installed?
    Do not attempt to manipulate this like the above, we’ve also added our custom weapons within the same directory.

    My versions under 'Downloads' shows 0.0.0.0 why?
    This is caused by you probably not having the correct ArmA 3 Path set under 'Settings'. If this was the cause, all mods would have been installed under the default path of C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3 cut/paste them to the correct location! Again ensure that you set the correct ArmA 3 path in 'Settings' in future.

    I double click a server on the browser, nothing happens...?
    Your ArmA 3 path has not been set correctly. Set this under 'Settings'.

    I join a server and get instantly kicked back to the server browser?
    Make sure your ArmA 3 path is set correctly. Also you should check to make sure that the mod folders are inside your ArmA 3 install. @AllinArma and @WSWeapons.

    Server Owners

    Why is my server not showing on the server browser, even though I installed the free mission/mod through one of your recommended Game Service Providers?
    At the moment we class the current build of the Launcher as "unstable", thus the thread title (Beta). We will eventually allow users to submit a request to have their server listed as and when the application is deemed stable.

    You will be required to have an active forums account here, with a valid email address, and have at least 10 posts to show that you're an active part of the community for contact purposes.
    At any point once accepted and added, if you should change the mission you're using without providing 24 hours notice, your account will be suspended and IP/Port Blacklisted. This is only for King of the Hill and Wasteland By Sa-Matra Servers.

    I found or bug or it crashed!

    Please submit all bug reports here: https://forums.arma.su/bugtracker

    Finally all of us here wish to express our thanks to all parties involved in getting this project off the ground. See "Credits" tab for more information.

                        The launcher does not recognize the weapon pack. I have downloaded it (@WSWeapons v0.0.0.2 in Arma 3 folder) but the launcher says I have 0.0.0.0.

                              ArmA 3 path is correct, I'll chance it to 0.0.0.3.

                              I will report back with more as I find it.


                              BTW: I love the simplicity of the launcher and the download speed is great too.
