A3 Launcher


A launcher built on the idea of less bloat the better.
It supports both A2CO and A3 as well as external addon folders for pain free storage of addons.
I also think its pretty.

Exe files can harm your PC! Before running this you should make sure you understand the risks!
Armaholic is in no way responsible if this file causes any damages what so ever! Downloading and installing this program is at your own risk.

Just run the setup.exe file.

Special Section:
Best mod layout for the installer.
zip root
pbos and keys can be placed anywhere expect the userconfig folder
anything non arma gets placed in the @xxxx folder
zip name is used as foldername. Watch youtube video on mrheadswe
