Disclaimer, as of the posting of this tutorial ARMA3Sync is not officially supported. There may be bugs/errors.
So anyway, lets get to the guide shall we:
Download ARMA3Sync from here http://www.armaholic...ge.php?id=22199
This part should be fairly easy. Just run through the prompts and once it is installed be sure to launch it.
After you have launched ARMA3Sync it will ask you to locate your ARMA3 game. Find your ARMA installation and select your ARMA3.exe and press ok.
Your ARMA3Sync should now look something similar to this:
Setting up repository.
Select the Repositories button here:
After this select "Add a new repository" here:
Enter the following link in to Public auto-config url http://sync.unitedop....a3s/autoconfig (right click this link and select copy link address)
and then press import:
It should now say it was a success and look like this:
Hit ok and the box should now close.
Now select the "Connect to repository" button located here:
And the page should now update to look similar to this:
After the modset's page has opened select the "Check for Addons" icon located here:
After a few seconds it should update the page to look similar to this:
Press select all (You can deselect @UOTest_A3 and @UOCBA_A3 as we do not use this) and then press the play button on the left, here:
Your mods should now start to update.
Your mods will eventually be downloaded and once it is complete it should say 'Finished':
And you are done! Your mods have been updated and you are ready to launch your game.
Step 5 (Optional):
Launching your game
So some may have used PWS to launch their game or they may wish for an alternate to their current method.
This is the method I am currently using and this does the job quite well and requires little effort.
Firstly, launch Steam and select ARMA 3. Launch your ARMA 3.
You should be prompted with the ARMA 3 launcher:
Go to mods and select the folder icon at the bottom located here:
Find your ARMA 3 installation location and press ok.
Your mods should now all appear in the box above.
Be sure to select the following mods. ACE, ACRE2, CBA A3, UOMAPS A3, UOMODS a3.
The image above shows the mods you will need.
I would also suggest you go to parameters and select no Splash and Skip Intro, as selecting these two will increase your launching time dramatically.
Then just hit play and you are done!
Current noted bugs:
Updating with A3Sync causes a HTTP error
The current solution to this problem is to try to run it a couple times again, if this fails delete the affected file and run the update again.
If you come across any errors during setup before posting please make sure you followed the tutorial correctly.
It is fairly easy to set up and run but skipping parts may cause some errors.
If this still has not fixed your error give it a quick Google and see if there's a fix online already.
If that fails then post here but remember this is still in unsupported testing at UO.
