The hosts.txt file is a special file that lists servers for Real Virtuality games.
When the multiplayer option is selected, the game will scan the file and list these servers in the multiplayer interface.
- Operation Flashpoint
- ArmA: Armed Assault
- Arma 2
- Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead
- Take On Helicopters
- Arma 3
The file has to be manually created in the game's root directory and named hosts.txt.
The content of this file is so that each line is a server, defined as follow:
- server can be an IPv4 address (e.g 192.168.1.33) or a DNS name (e.g arma3.my-server.com)
- port is optional and is set to 2302 by default if it is not defined.
There is no limit to the amount of lines in the file.
192.168.1.33 192.168.1.42:2402 arma3.my-server.com arma3.my-server.com:2302
