Getting started with Arma 3 Multiplayer

Getting started with Arma 3

It can be difficult getting started with Arma 3. There are many mods and you can tweak a lot of settings. This page is still under development, but the goal is to show you how to get started and list some useful Arma 3 resources.

Mods

We use several mods on our TG so we've created a modset containing all the mods we use for easy download. To get started, see SAS_Fluffy's guide on Downloading the A3 Modset with A3Sync.

Configuring the Arma 3 mods

1) Move your Userconfig folder

Locate the folder named Userconfig in mod folder where you downloaded your mods to. Move the folder to the root of your Arma 3 directory.

2) Task Force Radio (TFAR)

a) Task Force Radio uses TeamSpeak 3 in order to fully function. Locate your newly downloaded mods, go to @SAS_Gameplay, and then TFAR plugins.
b) Locate the plugins folder in your TeamSpeak 3 directory (ie. C:\Program Files\TeamSpeak 3 Client\plugins) and move the contents from the TFAR plugins folder to the TeamSpeak 3 plugins folder.
c) Launch TeamSpeak 3 and in the menu choose Settings -> Plugins. Tick Task Force Arma 3 Radio.
