Advanced Towing Install Instructions?

Question

Hey guys, 

I am trying to install the advanced towing, and the read me doesn't seem very clear to me.  Is there a step by step install guide anywhere that I can't seem to find.  All of the install guides I am finding are seemingly very vague to me. (I am a new admin, so I am still learning).

What I did so far was modify the fn_advancedTowingInt.sqf to modify parameters like how many vehicles can be towed, if they can be towed while locked, in safes zones, etc, I saved that file and packed the folder up into a .pbo and put that on my server under @ExileServer > Addons.

Second, I pulled out my altis.pbo mission file and modified the CfgRemoteExec.hpp (because i'm running infiSTAR) and inserted this line of code like the read me stated.
 

class CfgRemoteExec
{
	class Functions
	{
		mode = 1;
		jip = 0;
		class SA_Simulate_Towing 			{ allowedTargets=0; }; 
		class SA_Attach_Tow_Ropes 			{ allowedTargets=0; }; 
		class SA_Take_Tow_Ropes 			{ allowedTargets=0; }; 
		class SA_Put_Away_Tow_Ropes 			{ allowedTargets=0; }; 
		class SA_Pickup_Tow_Ropes 			{ allowedTargets=0; }; 
		class SA_Drop_Tow_Ropes  			{ allowedTargets=0; }; 
		class SA_Set_Owner 				{ allowedTargets=2; }; 
		class SA_Hint  				{ allowedTargets=1; }; 
		class SA_Hide_Object_Global  			{ allowedTargets=2; }; 
	};
	class Commands
	{
		mode=0;
		jip=0;
	};
};

Third, I added the mod to my servers custom launch parameters so that my launch code looked like this:
@Exile -servermod=@ExileServer;@infiSTAR_Exile;@SA_AdvancedTowing

When I saved and rebooted my server, it wouldn't even show up in the server list, so I know I did something wrong, but that's basically me following all of the instructions I've been able to find.  I've since went back to an old build and the server is back up, but any help at all would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks gents. @duda

you  forgot the two Lines from Infistar in the  CfgRemoteExec.hpp

class CfgRemoteExec
{
    class Functions
    {
        mode = 1;
        jip = 0;
        class fnc_AdminReq { allowedTargets=2; };
        class ExileServer_system_network_dispatchIncomingMessage { allowedTargets=2; };
        class SA_Simulate_Towing    { allowedTargets=0; }; 
        class SA_Attach_Tow_Ropes    { allowedTargets=0; }; 
        class SA_Take_Tow_Ropes        { allowedTargets=0; }; 
        class SA_Put_Away_Tow_Ropes    { allowedTargets=0; }; 
        class SA_Pickup_Tow_Ropes    { allowedTargets=0; }; 
        class SA_Drop_Tow_Ropes        { allowedTargets=0; }; 
        class SA_Set_Owner        { allowedTargets=2; }; 
        class SA_Hint            { allowedTargets=1; }; 
        class SA_Hide_Object_Global    { allowedTargets=2; }; 
    };
    class Commands
    {
        mode=0;
        jip=0;
    };
};

@Quixy are you talking about 
#include "CfgRemoteExec.hpp"
#include "infiSTAR_AdminMenu.hpp"

If so where should I add them? Also this should be the CfgRemoteExec.hpp found in the altis.pbo file, correct?  Does that seem like the only thing that I messed up? If I correct this should it work according to what I have done?

Agree!  How does this help others with the same/similar problem?

Getting this error

14:33:43 File sa_advancedtowing\config.cpp, line 34: '/CfgFunctions/SA/AdvancedTowing/advancedTowingInit.postInit': Missing ';' prior '}'

However further down I am getting this

14:34:13 "Advanced Towing Loading..."
14:34:13 "Advanced Towing Loaded"

Ill have to test it but didn't know if the error would be an issue - I haven't modified the file config.cpp

Also not using infastar at the moment
