Our ArmA3Sync now supports HTTP

Recommended Posts

Theoretically, this should help people with patchy connections. I hope it will mean that the people who have to leave their computers on for days to download the mods can now leave their computers unattended.

The details are available at https://community.16aa.net/guides/arma3-server-information/ (only accessible if you are signed in).

 

There is no need to switch if you are currently happy with downloading via FTP. Edit: I now recommend that everyone switches, as the mod pack will update much faster and there have been no issues with the HTTP server.

Please let me know if there are any issues.

I'd strongly recommend anyone still using the FTP switches to HTTP. HTTP supports delta updates while FTP does not. For last week's mod-pack, that meant people on HTTP had to download 20 megabytes while people on FTP had to download 21 gigabytes (that is not a typo).

Just flicking through the logs I can see that @Cpl McPherson, @Pte Fairlie, @A/LCpl Colthurst, @LCpl Cullen, and @Flt Lt Goosen are all still using the FTP. I got bored of looking so I suspect it is far more widespread than just those few.

Switching is simple: In ArmA3Sync, on the repository tab, single click the 16AA, click the pencil on the right, and edit the details such that they are the same as this page: https://community.16aa.net/guides/arma3-server-information/#ips_uid_5055_12

 

When I wrote the previous post I didn't realise it would make such a big difference.
