On the struggle buss: Cant find the Stratis v1.2 pbo

« posted: Oct 22, 2016, 08:11 PM »
Hey guys, I am trying to setup a A3wasteland server using the most recent Stratis files. In the past the pbos were with the release files, but I don't see them now. Am I to pull them off the Steam workshop? I need to be able to edit a few things so I was not sure if that was the correct place. My forum searches have not provided enough info for me to do this correctly. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Wow Mokey,
If you knew how to read with any comprehension, you would have see that I had been searching for it AND that I was able to get it working. Instead your just being an ass. Unhelpful and bringing the good reputation of the A3wasteland guys down.

Because Mokey is too big of a penis wrinkle to be helpful to anyone: I have added a bit of info that might help someone else.
Download and install PBO manger.
You will then need to download the most resent release files.
Unzip the main folder and place the folder anywhere.
Do a right mouse click on the main folder and pack them into a PBO.
Add that to the mpmissions folder in the root server folder.
Launch the server and your good to go.
Older versions of the release files are already packed in pbos under Old versions, you can just move them into the mpmission folder and launch.

Thanks,

Morgue!

This was your question, I lead you to the answer. I'm not understanding what the issue is.

TITLE:  Cant find the Stratis v1.2 pbo
From the Github (Release Files) look PBOs! Altis is there too. LOOK THERE IS STRATIS 1.2.

Here's the direct link: https://github.com/A3Wasteland/Release_Files/tree/master/Old%20versions/Stratis

You could just search the forums too.

Like in "info and Tutorials"
How to run the mission from steam workshop
http://forums.a3wasteland.com/index.php?topic=1180.0

There is also a readme in the release files...

 I was not intending to be an ass, but some things can just be found by using google. As I stated before, I was just simply leading you to the answer. It's a fair way to teach someone to use all resources at hand.

sigh... I try to be as helpful as I can. Some people just don't like having fun I guess.
But hey, you gave me a good laugh, it's not every day I get called a "Penis Wrinkle". That's a new one.

But yes, if you are asking HOW DO YOU GET THE NEWEST MISSION FILES INTO A PBO, your answer is correct indeed. There are a lot of PBO compilers, I prefer PBO manager, the right click functionality makes it so much quicker.

Now i'm going to be an ass, this is basic server management, this is a simple google search on HOW TO RUN AN ARMA SERVER. So before you get mouthy and start spewing off, use google.

I digress,

Download ZIP OR make your own github and fork the repo. I like to fork the repo so I can just merge Rev's updates much easier. and others can help you fix stuff if needed.

OK, lets start over... With respect.

I had a server running for 12 months at the end of 2014 into 2015. So I thought I knew how the process worked. As I was setting up the server, I was looking for a PBO, But there were no "Current" pbos in the release files. (that now makes more sense to do all your edits outside the pbo and just pack it instead of unpacking, copy and pasting, edit and then copy everything back and packing)...

1. I read the readme and important txt, no mention of packing the files into a pbo.
2. All of the youtube and reddit I found were from early 2015 and later and the pbo was included. I now know that the files were different due to the 1.62-1.64 A3 updates. So all the data I was running into was old.
3. I get that you guys don't want to spoon feed the noods. I get that there are answered questions all over the forums.

Instead I get this:

It will be on his Github:

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=A3Wasteland+Release+Files
(NOT HELPFUL)

Next time, lead us by asking questions like "what are you using as your search terms", "Did you look in all the downloaded folders?" "Try looking in this Topic Header "Info and Tutorials". Your answer will be in there."

As to the "Deprecated outdated PBOs" I didn't want to use the old files if there was an updated PBO. Again, I was looking for the Updated PBO to be in the core release file.

BY THE WAY: I have played on your server. It is Awesome and works very well. I also play on CCG and Matt76 has his crap together and that server is equally Awesome. I am trying build mine similar to yours and Matt76s as when I want to play often both are full. "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery"

I will ask this ONLY if you've given what you've done.

I don't mind spoon feeding, as long as you hold the spoon.
