Unfortunately, none of those paths is the right one.

This is how it should look like:
arma3_path.png
arma3_path.png (10.24 KiB) Viewed 1150 times

My registry key is in:

Code: Select all

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\bohemia interactive\arma 3

Note the "main" key that points to the "Arma 3" directory.

Try looking there. The Wow6432Node part is optional, it's a virtual path of you want to access keys set up by 32bit processes with your 64bit system (or so they say...).

Make sure you searched with F3 (find next) until regedit told you the search has ended. There may be several same directories that will look as if you were going through the old results but until you get tghe message box, the search is not over.

Alright! Now we're getting somewhere! :)
It seems Bohemia messed up and changed the registry key location because of reasons. Some users seem to have one location, while others the other location... :?

Try this version of the launcher EDIT: Link removed because the changes made here are now in the current version of the launcher anyway. Specially tailored for XaPeK ;).

EDIT: I have no idea why you have the "Steam App 107410" directory with all its contents. I have no such keys in my registry :?

Find a bug in the launcher, report it and help in solving it.
Then we can talk :P

Is it possible to have more options?
I already downloaded CUP addons via Steam workshop, and Taliban fighters from Armaholic; i guess starting the launcher download will reinstall every mod not found.

Would be nice to have a checklist of mods you want or don't want to download/update to help with mixed installations.
Suggestion machine, 'cause my way is better until proven not.

See the paragraph "If you already have Tactical Battlefield installed or have some mods already downloaded" from the first post, please.

Eventually, I would like to have the possibility to select a per-mod download location. Also, an automatic discovery of mods from Arma's directory would be something I'm looking forward to have.

Unfortunately, both those functionalities have still not been implemented due to time constraints. If you know Python, you're welcome to help :).

The point of the launcher is to have 100% certainty that users have exactly the same set of mods as required. Thus, allowing players to ignore some requirements would defeat the launcher's purpose. However, as pointed above, the possibility to point to mods already present on your drive from within the launcher is on my TODO list :).
