Description:

The hosts.txt file is a special file that Operation FlashPoint, ARMA, ARMA 2, ARMA2: Operation Arrowhead recognizes.

When you select the multi-player option, engine will scan this file for you and list those servers for you.

You will need to create this file by making a new text file in the root of your game folder and calling it hosts.txt

The syntax of the file is as follows:

IP:port
dnsname.com:port number
192.168.1.1:2302

The list can be as long as you like. Port number is optional, default 2302 is used when not specified. {{GameCategory|arma1|Multiplayer]] [[Category:Take On Helicopters}}
