Subscribed Steam Missions - Desktop Server
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I have recently resurrected a Windows 7 desktop computer and am hosting an ArmA III server on it from home (using TADST) for the XDF clan. I have a separate Steam account for this desktop computer and original ArmA III game installed (no other games reside on this desktop computer). When I subscribe to a Steam Workshop Mission on the desktop computer hosting the server, these missions do not display in the MP Missions listing (ie./ when connecting to this desktop computer hosting the server via the admin console on my normal gaming PC). I have looked around the forums and have not found any information on the issue above, therefore am wondering if its a Steam and or ArmA III related issue.


Legacy ID
Steam Workshop
Steps To Reproduce

When I do not use the TADST application and simply startup ArmA III as a normal game on the desktop computer hosting the server, the subscribed missions appear in the MP Missions listing in orange font (indicating its a steam subscribed mission).

I have tried running just the arma3server.exe method on the desktop computer with the same result (no orange steam subscribed missions available).

Additional Information

I am having no issues in seeing the hosted ArmA III server from my gaming PC internet search function (ie./ performed the recommended port forwarding procedure and assigning the ArmA III desktop computer server an internal static IP address on my router).

Hi, currently the dedicated server is unable to interact with Workshop. You need to add the mission as a local file.

There are promising changes coming with the new SteamWorks SDK that might finally enable dedicated servers working with Workshop content. We'll be hopefully be looking into that more in the future.

Also check how other admins handle that

Thanks for the update..the only issue with copying local file is if the mission developer updates it via have to keep copying the new version in. Guess you can close ticket based on the information provided. cheers

In the backlog already, waiting for a feasibility study.
