[DEV] Can't sign locked PBO files
New, NormalPublic


I've used a few hours now trying to sign files that are locked.
Can't depbo them to use addon builder and sign them, normally I use DSUtils and sign the files but I got only errors on files that were locked, basically, I'm getting:
Files C:\...\arma3...\filesname.pbo are not signed by a key accepted by this server. To play on this server, remove listed files or install additional accepted keys.

Even doe it's signed and the key is added into the key folder, tried creating a new key, tried having the creator give me a signed version of what he had but still no luck, he had it working on the non-dev branch but it does not seem to work on the dev branch.

This can be a very big issue for the modded servers.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce
  • Open ArmA 3 Tools
  • Starts DSUtils
  • Selects the key and addon folder
  • Sign files (Tried with v2 and default)
  • All files signed successfully, no errors and every file got the bisign on them
  • Adds the key into the key folder in Arma 3 directory
  • Starts the server from localhost with same addons and everything
  • Start my game with the addons
  • Joins the server and I get the error file.pbo are not signed by key ...... and then i get kicked off
Additional Information

Files that are obfuscated won't get signed, it works on non-dev-branch.

that are locked

What's that supposed to mean?

Can't depbo them to use addon builder and sign them

Well if you can't even depbo them then there is clearly something wrong with them.
