Survival Launcher - alternate Steam launcher for ARMA 2: OA and ARMA 3

Recommended Posts

Updated May 11, 2015: Version 1.0.0.5 released

 

I've been working for the last few months on a launcher for both Arma 2:OA and Arma 3. The goal is simple: keep it free, keep it updated (same day mod / game updates), and keep it from negatively impacting player ease of joining game servers. It's also modular and I can build in new games fairly easily.

 

Here are a few screenshots:

I decided to release a bit early due to the Arma 3 Epoch update and because the core features are stable. I have a sleugh of features in the works like favorites, friends, notifications, and statistics & reports. Coming soon, of course =)

 

Go download it at http://www.SurvivalLauncher.com

 

As feedback is crucial to this project, I ask that you let me know of any bugs or feature requests in the forum.

 

Cheers!

unless there will be a launcher that finally adds compatibility for mod collections and mods directly from armaholic, all new launchers are the same...

everyone adds their own mods and need a hardcoded updated for every new mod.. in the end the same like dayzcommander having mods not updated for 3 weeks +

So how to get this launcher to understand where I have my steam library installed? I put where I have it under settings and file path settings but all I am getting is "You don't have any games that works with this launcher"

You can launch into a plain Arma 2 servers using the "Any" filter, See below.

The settings tab has a file path that should auto detect your steam common folder, but if for some reason it does not detect your path, set it manually and be sure it has the closing "\" like this: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\

 

It MUST have the \ after SteamApps\common\

 

Then just go and refresh the server browser page.

Nice launcher! Can we have a favourites tab please.

Very nice looking launcher. Great dayzcommander replacement and a huge bonus of arma 3 being supported.

 

 

Ye and custom launch parameters as well for use of adding JSRS etc and stuff like -nologs -world=empty etc etc.

 

Both are at the top of the todo list. Expect an update tomorrow.

      Hi. I just setup a server at Vilayer, and when I installed Epoch, it told me that I had to remove Dayz Chernarus - so I did. Epoch apparently got installed, but now when I try to access my server in Dayz Launcher, it wants me to download part of the DayZ vanilla mod (~418MB). If I do that, I can start the game, but Epoch does not load, just standard DayZ, and I recieve an error "You cannot play/edit this mission..."
       

       
      Any clue to what I'm doing wrong here?

      For days I was having a issue like many others where I would launch Arma 3 trying to play any @Mod Folder game type. The game would either crash before I got to the lobby, :angry:  in lobby or when character load had just finished. :angry:
       
      :D Get your facepalms ready lol. :P

      Step 1: Open Arma 3 launcher

      Step 2: Click Mod tab

      Step 3: Browse files for Mod you would like to add

      Step 4: Add Mod or Mods to Launcher click OK (please note that there are boxes that u can click via left of mod added. Which you will need to make sure is white if u want to run that specific mod and or add-on. Check them or uncheck them like you would've enabled or disabled them via config option back before all this launcher craziness).

      Step 5: Click PLAY button bottom left hand of launcher after you made sure the @ mod folder box you want to play is checked.

      Step 6: Browse through server list , double click and enjoy. :wub:
