For those who have been following the progress of the ARMA 3 Linux & Mac experimental ports some reassuring news has arrived : https://dev.arma3.com/post/sitrep-00146
What I would like to know is :
Do any of the community created mods work with a Linux OS, and if so, how would you go about applying them?
For example :
One of the servers I would like to play on requires you to have two community mods, Community-Base-addons-A3-version-126.96.36.199220 and @Drift_NoFatigue.
Whilst I have downloaded both I do not know which folder they are to be extracted to. Below are the instructions provided for a Windows OS :
Extract into the ArmA 3 Directory, by default this is located in:
32-Bit - C:/Program Files/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
64-Bit - C:/Program Files (x86)/Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/
After extraction it should look like this:
I have no idea what the equivalent folders are for Linux, for me I find that the ARMA 3 Launcher (or exe for use of a better term ) filepath is as follows :
Everything else to do with the game is has a filepath as follows :
***once arma3 folder is open you have 3 options****
Please let me know if any other information is required.
Any assitance would be greatly appreciated.
For those that have not tried this game and are curious.......I am using Linux Mint 17.2 and have over 500 hours gameplay on it so far, it runs fine and looks great.
