Update instructions for A3W v1.2

extDB2 migration

  1. Delete your existing extDB libraries (Windows: extDB.dll, tbb.dll, tbbmalloc.dll / Linux:
  2. Rename "extdb-conf.ini" to something like "extdb-conf_old.ini"
  3. In the "extDB" folder from the Arma 3 root, rename the "db_custom" folder to "sql_custom_v2", and delete the "a3wasteland.ini" located inside; do NOT rename "extDB"
  4. Put the new extDB2 libraries (Windows: extDB2.dll / Linux: and the new extdb-conf.ini in the Arma 3 root
  5. Put the new "a3wasteland.ini" in the aforementioned "sql_custom_v2" folder
  6. Open the new "extdb-conf.ini" in a text editor, and adjust the connection settings in the [A3W] section at the bottom according to your previous settings from "extdb-conf_old.ini"

That's it. You don't really to use -mod with an "@extDB" folder, putting the libraries alongside arma3server.exe is sufficient. Also, if you plan on collecting debug info for me or Torndeco, you should keep the extDB2 debug libraries ready in a separate folder, so that you can easily swap them out with the regular ones if needed.

Vehicle textures migration (extDB)

  1. Shutdown server

Vehicle textures migration (iniDB)

  1. Shutdown server
  2. Open all the "A3W_Vehicles.ini" file(s) from the "db" folder in the Arma 3 root in your favorite text editor
  3. Replace all (Ctrl+H) "\camo_fuel." to "\swamp." (without quotes)
  4. Replace all "\camo_fack." to "\camo_orange."
  5. Replace all "\camo_deser." to "\camo_red."
  6. Replace all "\camo_pank." to "\camo_pink."

Vehicle textures migration (profileNamespace)

Wipe all data by deleting the "xxx.vars.Arma3Profile" file, there's no other way.
