Description

I guess you need to wrap the external modfolder address with quotation marks so that spaces are taken into account.
Otherwise it is not working.

Can you verify that even works?
I can remember testing it and Arma2 didn't support it at the time.
Just did a small test on my system:
=> It seems spaces in external folders and probably also in modfolders in general are not supported by Arma(2)
I tested
"C:\Arma 2\arma2.exe" -mod="c:\test spaces\kelly\@cba;c:\test spaces\kelly\@japahto;c:\test spaces\kelly\@panthera;c:\test spaces\kelly\@uk;"
"C:\Arma 2\arma2.exe" -mod="c:\test spaces\kelly\@cba";"c:\test spaces\kelly\@japahto";"c:\test spaces\kelly\@panthera";"c:\test spaces\kelly\@uk;"

None of both worked.

However what I could do is pop up a message: "Arma2 currently does not support external folders with spaces. Folder will not be added."

works like this;

"C:\Program Files\Bohemia Interactive\ArmA 2\beta\arma2.exe" "-mod=beta;c:\users\mc\documents\arma 2\@uk;c:\users\mc\documents\my games\@planes" -nosplash -nopause

:DD quote starts before -mod

probably same goes for -profiles -cfg -config -name etc...

Ah first time i've seen it used like that :-)
But all the easier to fix.
I'll fix it.
