I am Bastian Suter, the developer of the BattlEye system integrated in ArmA.
First of all, I would like to thank the many server admins that already have BE enabled on their servers and encourage those who decided otherwise to do the same. To some extent I need public and populated servers to find out what exactly is wrong. Therefore, I really appreciate those who indirectly help to fix the remaining bugs in the BE integration code by just running/using BattlEye. I am working closely with the ArmA devs to resolve these issues.
At this point, I'd also like to clean up with some typical false assumptions I have repeatedly read here and elsewhere:
- BE does not lag up your servers (increase ping, desync, etc.) or cause the servers to be unreachable
- BE uses only very little resources (CPU, bandwidth), so you hardly will notice it
- you don't need to forward any extra ports for BE to work right
Now please use this thread to report any problems you encounter and help us to resolve them.
