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.



       :: 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=

:: _________________________________________________________

echo     You are about to update ArmA 3 server
echo        Dir: %A3serverPath%
echo        Branch: %A3serverBRANCH%
echo     Key "ENTER" to proceed
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

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