Updating DS to 1.68

3 posts in this topic

So, I run a DS on a computer at home. And now that 1.68 of ArmA is out, it needs to be updated. Simply restarting the server didn't work. And as far as I can see, there is no simple "update.bat" (yeah, yeah, I'm old :P).
Any tips on how to easily update ArmA to the latest version without effing up all the mods?

this is the .bat I use, just fill in some of the areas and run it.

Spoiler

SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION

       :: DEFINE the following variables where applicable to your install

    SET STEAMLOGIN=(Username) (Password)
    SET A3serverBRANCH=233780 -beta
        :: For stable use 233780 -beta
        :: For Dev use 233780 -beta development
                :: Note, the missing qotation marks, these need to be wrapped around the entire "+app_data......"
                :: There is no DEV branch data yet for Arma 3 Dedicated Server package !!!

    SET A3serverPath=
    SET STEAMPATH=


:: _________________________________________________________

echo.
echo     You are about to update ArmA 3 server
echo        Dir: %A3serverPath%
echo        Branch: %A3serverBRANCH%
echo.
echo     Key "ENTER" to proceed
pause
steamcmd.exe +login %STEAMLOGIN% +force_install_dir %A3serverPath% +"app_update %A3serverBRANCH%" validate +quit
echo .
echo     Your ArmA 3 server is now up to date
echo     key "ENTER" to exit
pause

Set path to a new folder set up just for ARMA updates, then replace old stuff from new folder with the new ARMA files.

Use the same steamcmd command line you used to install the arma 3 server. That will update it to the latest version.
