Description:
This is a server-side addon that remotely injects client-side viewable content into your server's mission briefings.
It remotely injects a customiseable Subject and Diary record into the briefing
The customiseable content is defined in the userconfig folder.
This means you can edit the content of the injection strings without breaking into the addon.

Key features:
  • It creates:
      - A briefing Subject entry (Customiseable title)
      - A briefing Diary entry (Customiseable content)
  • It does not create any addon dependancies in the mission
  • The clients do not need any addons, nor do they have to do anything for it to work for them
  • It is easily customised by the server admin without unpacking the addon
We use this at the Zeus Gaming community to automatically add our teamspeak details, web address and server rules etc to the mission briefings without having to edit the missions.


Installation:
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:
Steam/Steamapps/Common/ArmA 3/@your_mod_folder_name
You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder.

Place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".

You'll also need add a Launch Parameter to Steam, in order to do so right-click on ArmA 3 Alpha and click Properties and then Set Launch Options. In the window that opens enter in -mod=@your_mod_folder_name
For using multiple mods you would then do so like this:
-mod=@mod_name;@mod_name2;@mod_name3;@mod_name4;@mod_name5

Note:
You can also use -nosplash to get rid of the splash art and intro videos.


When the above information still does not provide you with enough to learn how to install custom addons and mods you can always ask in our Guide On Installing Mods.
