    List of ArmA command line options?

    hmmm... I noticed most of the launchers allow you to run windowed and skip the splash screens... anyone know how to do that from the command line? I've seen the -maxmem switch as well and am generally curious what other options are available to me from the command line. I haven't been able to find anything yet - anyone else know?

    Re: List of ArmA command line options?

    Here you go:

    ArmA: Startup Parameters from the BIS Wiki

    These parameters can be configured by creating a new shortcut on your desktop and then adding the appropriate option.

    Example

    "C:\...\some path\ArmedAssault.exe" -nosplash -mod=@winter

    Contents [hide]
    1 Available parameters
    1.1 Display Options
    1.2 Misc.
    1.3 Modifications
    1.4 Network Options
    2 Closer Description
    2.1 config
    2.2 profiles
    2.3 ranking
    2.4 nosplash

    Available parameters


    Display Options

    -x= Numeric, used to set resolution width
    -y= Numeric, used to set resolution height
    -window Displays ArmA windowed instead of full screen
    (can be used in conjunction with -x/-y: -window -x=800 -y=600)
    -nosplash Disables intro and splash screens
    -benchmark Intended for automated benchmarking, but was never
    finished and is not working.

    Misc.

    -maxmem= Limit memory allocation (in MB)
    -init= Run scripting command once in the main menu (often used as "-init=playMission[,'M04Saboteur.Sara']"
    -world= Select a world loaded by default, e.g. -world=Sara
    -noland Starts ArmA with no world. (Used for Bulldozer)
    -buldozer Start ArmA in Buldozer mode.
    -generateshaders Use unknown. (Possibly for use with Buldozer)
    -download Use unknown. (Possibly set auto download of missing Mod pbo's from
    server.)
    -disableProgramDrawing Use unknown. (Possibly for use with Buldozer)
    -useProgramDrawing Use unknown. (Possibly for use with Buldozer)
    -gamertag= Use unknown.
    -dsound Use DirectX sound.
    -openal Use OpenAl sound.
    -nosound No sound output.

    Modifications

    -mod= Allows you to subdivide your addons into different folders,
    folder names separated by semi-colons.
    See modfolders for more information.
    -cfg= Selects a config file like your arma.cfg.

    Network Options

    -port= Port to host dedicated server on.
    -password= Password to join dedicated server.
    -ranking= Used to generate a ranking file. -ranking=<filename>
    -config= Config file for server specific stuff like admin password and mission selection.
    -host Start a non-dedicated host.
    -server Start a dedicated server (not needed for a special dedicated server exe).
    -connect= Client-side, server to connect to.
    -name= Client-side, User name.
    -profiles= Alternative placement for per-user content.
    -netlog Enables ArmA multiplayer network traffic logging

    Closer Description

    config

    The option -config allows you to specify a specific server.cfg file.

    profiles

    -profiles is a startup option allowing you to choose an alternate location for the user profile files, such as missions and .cfg files.

    The windows user account would need permissions to write to the folder of choice.

    An example might be like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\ArmA.exe" -profiles=C:\ArmA\Profiles

    Ranking

    -ranking is a startup option allowing you to output ranking info or othewise know as player stats.

    The windows user account would need permissions to write to the folder of choice.

    An example might be like this:

    "C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA\ArmA.exe" -ranking=C:\ArmA\ranking.log

    nosplash

    -nosplash is a startup option that allows you to bypass the splash screens on startup of Operation Flashpoint and Armed Assault.

    Note: Real speed-up gained with this is likely to be negligible with Armed Assault, as the loading screens are handled in parallel with the game data being loaded, and the loading itself takes quite long thanks to the amount of data needed.

    You must spread some reputation around before giving it to Loyalguard again

    Anyone have any success with this? It'd be nice to have stats in a log file.
