extDB3 problem

« posted: Aug 29, 2021, 08:35 AM »
When using my custom mission file, I always get this error loading the database:

[11:49:47:181496 +08:00] [Thread 148] extDB3: SQL_CUSTOM: D:\Games\ArmA3\A3Master\@extDB3\sql_custom\a3wastelandragon doesn't exist
[11:49:47:182251 +08:00] [Thread 148] extDB3: Failed to Load Protocol: SQL_CUSTOM

I searched the forum and I found a topic with the same problem, and the solution is "use the vanilla a3w file". This is not a solution! How can I play my own mission??

you need to set the Allow file patching on TADST to be 1. Also, I use an older MySQL and everything is solved.

I set filepatching=1 for sure. What do you mean using a older MySQL? Can you please tell me the details??

Do you install the MySQL database? and set up the MySQL connection file according to the GitHub link  https://github.com/A3Wasteland/Release_Files/blob/master/A3W_extDB3_README.txt


 I use the new version MySQL and get the error.  so I switch to the old MySQL from xampp and it works.

How do I switch to the older MySQL from xampp?

maybe download from here

you just need to install MySQL from xampp.

Also, if you want to manage the database, you can use

I uninstalled the newest version of xampp and downloaded the 7.3.29 version, but I still get the same error....is it because of my mission pbo file?

TADST problem number one, problem number 2 share your files, PM, whatever your comfortable with and I'll take a look when I have some free time later today. I recently felt an itch on my balls and had to download Arma 3 again.

MySQL Community works just fine too, my preference
