This is a simple addon, that will launch a WebSocket server, recieves/sends data between an external WS app and the ARMA engine.
This mod is basically a custom .DLL file.
This is my first external lib for ARMA and I think it's fun to connect ARMA to the outer world.
.dll files can harm your PC! Before running this you should make sure you understand the risks!
Armaholic and its staff can never be held responsible when this file causes any damages, disruption in services or anything else in any way! Downloading and installing this file is totally at your own risk!
We have run anti-virus tools on the included files and found no issues
but this is no guarantee!
To install arma-ws you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page
for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.
