  • Finding TacticalGamer.com ArmA 3 servers

    Currently it takes a long time for the Steam server list to populate. I suggest the following work around:

    Find your game folder where A3 is installed. Right click on the "arma3.exe" file and choose "Send To Desktop (Create Shortcut)".

    Then find the desktop shortcut and right click it and go to "Properties".

    At the end of the target line and outside the last quotes add the following

    Code:
    -nosplash -nopause -connect=208.43.76.154:2333
    This new shortcut will start your game and join the TG Server One as soon as it starts.

    Pro tip !...

    Why doesn't the server appear through the filter anymore?

      It does show up in the filter. It just takes a lot (LOT) longer than it use to.

      When Filtering "whole name" works better than "partial" so - TacticalGamer.com - is the better filter choice. The STEAM search can take as short as 15 seconds (a lot from the old days) to upwards of minutes. This is not a result of our server or our listing but purely the way the STEAM search function works on THEIR listing servers.

      STEAM and BI would say that "Partial Words work fine" but I have found that it extends the search time even more when NOT using the full TG name (including the "dot com").

      Unkl's workaround is elegant and makes getting to the server even faster than any search.

      Posted only for clarification on the Filter question.

        The Steam functionality is slated for an update. We may even get a hotfix early next week for it. So I have every confidence the server lists in game will be fixed soon.

          Thanks Unkl and Solo - this should help as I haven't been able to see the TG server on the Steam List in the past (sounds like I was probably just too impatient)

            I can't find it any way I try... so I join by REMOTE IP, just have to remember to change the default port to there 2333...

            I was surprised to only find a low number of missions, along with confusing titles to know what they were... 6 and 15 on another map... something up with that?

              There is apparently a known bug on using -connect that causes your client to be very laggy. This is slated for a fix in the bug tracker I believe. So perhaps the best thing is to have patience at the in-game lobby. The latest hotfix should have improved the situation since they changed some port issues.
