    (SOLVED) Six Updater and Bravo Server Mods (@TGMaps installation issue)

    Hello all who are willing to help with my predicament.

    I recently was gifted ArmA 2 CO on Steam and was promptly excited as I could finally play on the famous TG ArmA servers. I followed the Hitchhikers Guide to ArmA instructions (and Unkl's new video) on how to get Six Updater running correctly.

    I successfully got the .yml Presets from the correct location and installed all of the mods required to play on the Alpha Server, I launched the game and joined it to make sure it worked. It did.

    I then moved onto installing all of the mods for the Bravo Server by right clicking on the preset and choosing 'install or update mods.' It downloaded all mods successfully except @TGMaps. This 'failed' at 6%. I tried again and again and again and it still failed at the same percentage

    I then resorted to asking ArmA admins for help (Unk, Low, Bol, Garth) Over 3 days all 4 of those admins went through all of the solutions they could summon from setting @TGMaps in the Dynamic Preset to deleting it from my OA Directory and trying again. Every possible solution has failed and at this point I am utterly stumped.

    Error messages in the bottom left of Six Updater include: TBA

    If anyone who reads this has a possible solution please post till your hearts content as any possible fix is highly appreciated at this point.

    I hope that it eventually gets worked out, and I hope I get to play with you all soon.

    Thanks, Sushi.

    *UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE*

    After a freak accident of making progress from six percent to 46 percent and another failure. I replaced missing bisigns and came back and progress was at 99%! I waited thinking this couldn't be right and it turned 100 and all systems are green!

    I'd like to thank all of the admins and other TG members greatly for helping me solve this issue that magically seemed to solve itself.

    I will see you all on the server!!!

    Glad it is solved! Points to you for your determination!

    Issue should be solved. Please post if it resurfaces.

    For the record, the solution was to manually put in the BIkey files in @TGMaps/Addons, transfered from another player. The precise solution remains unknown, as transfering the BIkeys failed at first. On a later attempt, several days later, for no known reason, the % completed which it failed at went from 6% to 42%. Then we tried putting the BIkeys in AGAIN into @TGMaps/Addons, and then it went to 100%/Green.

    Re: Six Updater and Bravo Server Mods (@TGMaps installation issue)

    I noticed downloading the @tgmaps part that it went up to about 46 or 47% and then stopped for about 2-3 mins before it just jumped up to 100%

    The problem was with me that it wouldn't work fullstop.

    Re: Six Updater and Bravo Server Mods (@TGMaps installation issue)

    There has been a resurfacing of the problem here, this time following a different message in the logs, no longer fixed by just copying over the files into a new @TGmaps/Addons folder (I tried that in a few different ways with the help of Garthra) the download reaches 2%, never any higher and the problem is not in the BIkeys, There is an error in there and I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong.

    Not allowed mods: @tgmaps Cannot confirm server and client version.
    This is the only error I can find, I have been through with Garthra and I am on the same version and there is nothing to determine between the versions of our games

    I want to see Arma 2 have a slightly higher impact before we move onto Arma 3 and sadly i've been unable to access the server due to my lack of the @TGmaps mod

    I also know a few other people who have my problem

    If it helps in anyway I have got some of the log file in the attachments, just ask me if you need any more information and you shall receive it.

    Thank you in advance, this shows that I really need to get better with computers and overall problem solving

    Crazi I hope you sent this info to Sickboy as he is the only one able to help you sort this out. Go to his support or help section of Sixupdater and send him your error report. Good Luck.

    Within the Sixupdater you can go to support tab if you click the Home tab. Read the instructions and hope for him to reply. Make sure you read all jargon to see where to Post your ticket.
