Setting up Swifty & Installing the modpack

Setting up the repository

FPARMA is using several mods that adds new content and enhances the gameplay. The size is quite large so be sure to download it in time and test it out!

If you're having issues with ACRE (radios), try running TS3 and A3 as admin.


Installation

Add a new Repo Button
Repo Address dialog

We are using Swifty as our repo downloader. Swifty is a simplistic modpack manager aimed to be a solution for communities hosting their own modpacks.

Swifty can be downloaded via this URL: https://getswifty.net/download.html


Download the installer and open Swifty, Click the "+" located at the top to add a new repo.

We are using a modular modpack system. The main repo will be used on Sundays and is all you need if that's your only interested in playing the main ops.
If you are interested in playing other days of the week, then there is a chance the server will be on the blended repo.
Note that if you choose to have more of the repos other than main, put them in the same folder (in swifty config when you add the repos)! or you'll just waste space.

The URL to the MAIN repo which will be used on Sundays is
http://main-repo.fparma.com/

The URL to the BLENDED repo which will be used for random content during weekdays, etc
http://blended-repo.fparma.com/

The URL to the CORE repo which will very rarely be used outside of mission making and bug testing:
http://core-repo.fparma.com/

After that Swifty should take care of the rest.

Allowed Clientside Addons

We also allow the below client-side addons. (List Updated May 7th, 2018)

Troubleshooting Swifty problems

Check that you're running the most current version

You can check this by opening Swifty and then clicking on the wrench icon on the top right. The version should be on the bottom left of the popup box.

Finding the Log File

The Logfile can be found under the following path:

%APPDATA%\Swifty\Swifty.log

This path can be typed into your windows explorer (explorer.exe) in the address bar and then type enter. The text file should now open with the log entries inside.


Clearing the Swifty cache

Swifty Roaming Folder
  1. Close Swifty
  2. Navigate to "%APPDATA%\Swifty" (See right-side image)
  3. Delete the folders "Cache" and "Temp"
  4. Start Swifty
  5. Check for Updates


Swifty says "Failed to download files"

Sometimes Swifty has a hard time downloading files, you may have to delete the folders it's updating and fully re-download those folders.


"I get kicked from the server for missing files"

  1. Make sure you are using the launch/join option on Swifty
  2. Verify that the location in which you have told Swifty that Arma is, is correct
  3. Check to make sure Swifty has downloaded everything, sometimes it takes a couple tries.
