Need some help ... got stuck
I need some help with my dedicated server. I'm interested in finding a coop 1-5 player maps that are either single missions and/or campaigns. If anyone could point me to a mission(s) and how to load it up, I would appreciate it. I have some friends who are interested in learning on 'how to play', so I figured on running a lan server and start playing. I've made some previous postings a while back, but just didn't have the time to get anything started.
I may have a lot of questions later.
Well, I got a program called TA2DST and dl'd a coop mission called "Assassin.Takistan" which is for Arma2 OA. I put the mission in the MPMission folder. I got the parameters for the game set in the TA2DST program. I got the mp dedicated server to start. However, when I get into the game and go to the mp screen I see my server, but there is no "type" or "mission" there. All I get when I type my pw in is "Wait for Host" and then I wait for a long time for nothing to happen? Can anybody help?
Got it to work. Had to enable Battleeye on the TA2DST and update battleeye. Joined the game right up.
Ok. MP works greats. I'm getting between 45 and 55 fps. Ofc the server is on a lan and it's right next to my main rig. However, my friend connected and is getting around 8 fps. Is there a fix for this? Server side or player side?

I am basically doing the same thing, but I am running the CO dedi from the same installation as I play it from. Launching dedi thru TA2DST and when I launch the actual game from steam and try to connect I get stuck in the "Wait for Host". Enabling BE did not help.
I also tried without TA2DST and I also tried copying all A2 files to elsewhere and running the dedi from there but I always get stuck on the wait for host.
Edit1: Got it to work with takistani mission so I suppose i have configured the CO stuff wrong...
