by

Description:
eConz is primarily is a serverside mod for ArmA 3 allowing scripted remote administration of a server using the eConz client.


Features:
Command system for performing fucntions quickly
Password protected access
Almost limitless interaction with the server without even loading the game!


Installation:
Step 1. Move the folder named "@eConz", "Connection_info.txt", "eConz Server Start.bat" and "eConz Server.exe" into your ArmA 3 server root/install directory
Step 2. Install CBA_A3 from the following link - http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=18767
Step 3. Right click edit "eConz Server Start.bat" and where it says "-port 1234" change it to "-port (your port)", then where it says "-pass Jerry" change it to "-pass (your password)" finally save the file and open "Connection_info.txt" change "1234" to the port you specified in "eConz Server Start.bat"
Note: to start multiple eConz servers you need to make a copy of your ArmA 3 server folder and edit the files you just edited above
Step 4. Distribute the "eConz Client" to your server admins with the password and port

Armaholic addons and mods install guide:
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\addons\

You can also use the "Arma 3 Alpha" folder in your "My Documents" folder. Your folder setup could than look like for example this:
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name1\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\
mydocuments\Arma3 Alpha\@your_mod_folder_name2\addons\

When present place the "userconfig" folder into your game install folder, usually:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3".
You may already have "userconfig" folder from other addons and/or mods in which case it is safe to merge the contents from this archive.

You'll also need to 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.


And of course you can also enable and disable community made addons and mods through the in-game Options Expansions menu if you do not want to mess with startup parameters!

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.

Note:
If you get a missing dll error and it isn't "eConz.dll" then install the following packages:
