Howto add ArmA3Sync Modsets


since the "delete the modset and add it again" problems are still recurring,
I want to share a quick tutorial that is showing how you can add modsets from the repository that get updated automatically.

  1. Delete all 3CB Modsets from the Addons Tab

  2. Select all 3CB Server (with Modsets) from the Join Server Dropdown Menu

  3. Repeat step 2. for all (Server - Modset) entries

  4. This will create all Modsets under Addon Groups

  5. The next time you update the repo and a modset changed,
    the following message will pop up
    Image

  6. All modsets are now updated, no need to delete and readd them

PS: afaik this is not happening for the modsets added manually via the Modsets Button
let me know if this isn't valid anymore

Update:

Since the latest version of Arma3Sync it adds a "(synchronized)" to the modsets/events after you updated the according repository.
(and they changed it so it doesnt matter if you added the modset via the modsets button or via the join server list)

(this picture shows the modsets after I updated the normal repository, the joint tiger repository wasnt updated and could use a old modset)


So, the next time your modset isnt updated just go to the repository and update the repository (you have to hit the "play" button, even if there are no updates to the files).
As soon you see the "(synchronized)", youre good to go.

Do use with caution, my Joint Tiger modset was marked as "synchronised" and was up to date, but had an irrelevant mod in it that blocked me joining initially this morning. Had to manually delete and recreate.
