Lost Bullet Posted March 10, 2017 Share Posted March 10, 2017 As we discovered this week there are some Arma3Sync setups that are conflicting with mods downloaded from other sources (e.g. Steam Workshop). To address this issue we decided to rename our modset and include a prefix ("AW_") to all the mods available to clearly identify them and in the process making A3S identify them as unique mods. The repo has already changed and to minimize downloads we recommend manually renaming all AWE mods by adding the prefix "AW_" to all of them (help instructions below). --------------------------------------------- Open Arma3Sync and go to Addons Tab and open your mod folder with the windows file explorer (e.g. normally C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3) Now rename all the folders matching the AhoyWorld Enhanced modset to include a “AW_” prefix, as example:“@ace” rename to “@AW_ace”The mod version should also be removed from the version (e.g. “@spec4gear.v4.6” renamed to “@AW_spec4gear” NOTE: In the end of these instructions there’s a optional setup that canchange all the folders at once. Synchronize the modset and make sure nothing is left to update (Total files to update:0) Go to Addons and press “Refresh” followed by update the Modset by pressing in the Modsets option and selecting “Ahoyworld Enhanced”. “Ahoyworld Enhanced” folder should now list all the mods starting with “@AW_” as in the picture below: All the duplicate warnings should be gone and if all is synced correctly, launch arma and Join us at AWE! Spoiler Optional instructions to change all the folder names at once USE THIS INSTRUCTIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK a) in the mod folder create a new file called “modify_aw_mods.bat” right click on that file and select “edit” c) copy paste the following commands to the file editor: MOVE @3CB_BAF_Equipment @AW_3CB_BAF_Equipment MOVE @3CB_BAF_Units @AW_3CB_BAF_Units MOVE @3CB_BAF_vehicles @AW_3CB_BAF_vehicles MOVE @3CB_BAF_Weapons @AW_3CB_BAF_Weapons MOVE @abramia @AW_abramia MOVE @ace @AW_ace MOVE @acex @AW_acex MOVE @Burnes_AAV @AW_Burnes_AAV MOVE @CBA_A3 @AW_CBA_A3 MOVE @Cha_AV8B @AW_Cha_AV8B MOVE @cTab @AW_cTab MOVE @CUP_Terrains_Core-1.3.0 @AW_CUP_Terrains_Core MOVE @CUP_Terrains_Maps-1.3.0 @AW_CUP_Terrains_Maps MOVE @Fallujah @AW_Fallujah MOVE @fhq_accessories @AW_fhq_accessories MOVE @Gorgona @AW_Gorgona MOVE @isladuala_a3 @AW_isladuala_a3 MOVE @JS_JC_FA18 @AW_JS_JC_FA18 MOVE @lingor_a3 @AW_lingor_a3 MOVE @Mine_Detector @AW_Mine_Detector MOVE @Project_OPFOR @AW_Project_OPFOR MOVE @RHSAFRF @AW_RHSAFRF MOVE @RHSGREF @AW_RHSGREF MOVE @RHSUSAF @AW_RHSUSAF MOVE @ShackTac_User_Interface @AW_ShackTac_User_Interface MOVE @spec4gear.v4.6 @AW_spec4gear MOVE @SpecialSaus @AW_SpecialSaus MOVE @task_force_radio @AW_task_force_radio MOVE @tf47_launchers @AW_tf47_launchers MOVE @tf47_launchers_rhs @AW_tf47_launchers_rhs MOVE @XLA_FixedArsenal_v3.1.1 @AW_XLA_FixedArsenal d) Save the file and execute it ONCE. After the execution you can delete the file. This is basically a command that executes a renaming of all the folders following the logic “MOVE folder_name new_folder_name” fir_nev, Noah_Hero, KingFronXos and 1 other 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
