Symbolic link issue.
Reviewed, NormalPublic


I'll try to be as detailed as I can be, but I'm very new to using the arma3diag_x64.exe stuff, but I'm fairly certain that I have set up everything correctly, Red_Phoenix helped me out setting everything up.

So here's my issue, I have a custom tank, all of the animations work correctly in stable and dev branch, turrets work, hatch works, dampers etc. The problem I'm having is with arma3diag_x64 and the symbolic link I'm using. I have the sym link going from the tank folder from the P drive, into the Arma 3 root directory, as instructed. (see fig 1)

Inside the P drive tank folder, I have a text file named $PBOPREFIX$ with the lines "1.CCS_HV_Tank 2.version=Kiory 0.5;". (numbering is just to show you which line they are at).

As my launch parameters on the arma3diag_x64.exe shortcut I have: "E:\Steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3diag_x64.exe" -skipIntro -noSplash -name= -cpuCount=12 -exThreads=7 -enableHT -maxvram=2048 -showScriptErrors -filePatching -mod=@CCS_HV_Tank_M

Merging configs works, making P3D changes and resetting shapes works., but my issue is that by doing this this way, the animations break, the turret won't move, the hatch won't animate, it just breaks, and I have no clue as to why and as I've stated, it all works in Stable and Dev.

What I've established with some testing is that the symbolic link is interfering with it somehow because if I delete it, the animations start working again even with the arma3diag_x64.exe, so I don't think the problem is on my end, however if I'm doing something wrong, I would love to know. I have also copied over the P drive tank folder over directly, to no avail.

Thanks for your time, hope this can be resolved either on your end or mine.
