# Thread: Six Updater: Install/Update mods, missions. Delta patching. Server browser, and more!

1. Thanks for the update Sickboy. I haven't tried it yet so don't know if it will fix this problem, but when I try and Launch from Six Launcher it says "No entry '.profilePathDefault'.

If I use the startup switches -profiles=E:\Data\ArmaII\ and -name=doveman it creates the folder E:\Data\ArmaII\Users\doveman which is empty. Normally when I launch (with Arma II Launcher or a shortcut) with just -name=doveman, it correctly uses my profile which is in My Documents\ArmA 2 Other Profiles\doveman\ (no Users subfolder in there). The following is shown in C:\Users\Main\AppData\Local\ArmA 2 OA\arma2OA.RPT:

Code:
=====================================================================
== "D:\Games\ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead\Expansion\beta\expansion\beta\arma2oa.exe" -noFilePatching -noSplash -connect=23.29.118.42 -port=2302 -profiles=E:\Data\\ArmAII\ -name=doveman "-mod=D:\Games\ARMA2-Free;expansion;expansion\beta;expansion\beta\expansion;@DayZ"
=====================================================================
Exe timestamp: 2012/06/22 23:37:04
Current time:  2012/06/23 00:17:03

Warning Message: No entry '.profilePathDefault'.

I've got a feeling Dayz doesn't work with CO Lite (i.e. Arma II Free + OA) anyway, as there's an additional arma2oa.RPT created in the E:\Data\ArmaII\ folder with loads of "Warning Message: No Entry" messages. I'm not that bothered as I don't think Dayz is really my "thing" and I only wanted to show it to my friend.

I also don't understand what's going on with the expansion\beta;expansion\beta\expansion bit. expansion\beta should be the correct folder, which is created when I run the beta installer and that contains the beta arma2oa.exe, etc but now there's a @Dayz folder in there and another expansion\beta folder nested inside that, which appears to contain duplicates of the arma2oa.exe, etc and a .rsync folder, so I presume this has been created by Six Updater.

But the six updater just wont install for me.
And then i always get the same error, saying something interpreted it, and no files have been changed.

I have a PC, Windows 7, i have Arma 2 and OA, Recently downloaded it from STEAM, and i have played 1 mission on Arma 2: Combined Operations.
Anything in the event log? (Control Panel, Administrative Tasks, Event Viewer, Windows Logs -> Application).
Do you have a screenshot?

For the time being you must use %warfare% %ACE% etc
Will be improved in the next-gen software.

Also, I need to create an "A2 OA Vanilla (no beta)" profile, which I've done but even though under Game Profile "Beta" isn't ticked, it still lists the mod "expansion/beta" under this profile. Does that matter or will it just not use it if "Beta" is unticked?
You probably have Beta enabled up top at Overrides then, to make the beta dependent on the game profile make sure it is set to indeterminate state; not ticked and not unticked.
But if a server requires the beta it might still activate, in that case you can force it off with the override up top.

Cool that there's a way to manually add servers though. Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to have worked for me and without a way to give it a name, I can't see a way to find the server, if it has been added.
Will look into.

Ah I see, thanks. Yep, that works OK.

That was the first thing I unticked but still the beta exansion was listed under the profile. I've managed to get rid of it somehow now by clicking various things (I don't know what worked in the end, but it certainly wasn't as straightforward as it should have been). I'm having another problem now, in that I can't get the profile assigned to Arma II Free. So I've got a Preset "A2 Any - Vanilla" which I've associated with the profile "A2 Standalone (forced)" which in turn has the Game setting on "Arma2FreeSt" but still the commandline at the bottom shows (even after switching to another profile and back) "D:\Games\ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead\arma2oa.exe -noSplash -noFilePatching -showScriptErrors "-name=doveman" "-mod=D:\Games\ARMA2-Free;expansion"". Also, after closing and restarting Six Updater, the Preset "A2 Standalone (forced)" has reset it's Game setting to "Arma2St". I even tried making a new Preset "A2 Free" and setting it's Game setting to "Arma2FreeSt" but still the commandline shows the same and that changes to "Arma2" after restarting as well.

Will look into.
Thanks.

4. Sorry if this question has been answered, but is there anyway to make each update an actual update, instead of a whole new install? Each time I open six I get a message advising that it's going to download a new version, and then takes me through a full install process.

Secondly, each time this new install completes I get a DayZ launcher coming up, is there anyway to stop this from coming up? Why don't all my mods come up in this launcher, and not just DayZ?

If you're in a loop, the installation might be corrupt, best would be to fully uninstall, delete Six updater folders and shortcuts, and reinstall the latest version.
The installation/upgrade process is being worked on.

The launcher will support more mods in the future, you can prevent it from starting up by unticking the option at the end of upgrades.

6. Sickboy, am I not able to delete those presets that come with the program? (A2 OA - A.C.E., A2 Any - Vanilla, etc)

You can delete synced presets but they'll come back at the next sync. There's a ticket open on hiding/removing them.

8. How do i save the filters i have set in Six Updater? They reset everytime i launch Six Updater.
