# Thread: !Beta Troubleshooting, Tips, FAQs

1. Try reinstalling DirectX 9c, perhaps?

2. I would like to be able to dis-allow beta code on our primary dedi-server, leaving beta code to run on our pub and practice servers. How can I disable beta code on a server?

This may be a point for bringing up a beta .bisign for servers that want to have beta code allowed.

3. NEED HELP.....

we can't use beta actually.

This works, no beta:
Code:
call "C:\A2CO\ARMA2OAserver.exe" "-mod=Expansion;common" "-mod=@CBA;@zeu_AI"
But this don't, with beta:
Code:
call "C:\A2CO\Expansion\beta\ARMA2OAserver.exe"  "-mod=%_ARMA2PATH%;EXPANSION;Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\Expansion;ca"  "-mod=@CBA;@zeu_AI"
The last "code" is from http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=101214
I have removed all -cpuCount and other important stuff.
Seems to me that I startup the server in a wrong way. I would like to get the beta running though.

It's a win7 64-bit. No steam, separate DVD's installed into the same folder.
I used the "_runA2CO_beta.cmd" for NoSteam and modified it a bit to clean it all up. But players get kicked if I use call line that came with "_runA2CO_beta.cmd". The server starts fine, showing a lot of "arma 2".

When people get kicked, there is just a "disconnected" in the public.log. No other information. Not even in the servers rpt-fil.

Does anybody else know how I can use the beta with A2:CO, BAF, PMC and other addons?

4. Hey no brainer why not use tophe dedi server tool its so easy to use and ya can select the BETA server.EXE

5. woulden't it be better if BIS got it to work?

6. beta.bat
Code:
start /wait Expansion\beta\arma2oaserver.exe -noFilePatching -config=serverOA.cfg -cfg=basicOA.cfg -name=OA -port=2402 -profiles=D:\ARMA -nosound -cpuCount=2 -exThreads=1 -mod=Expansion\beta;Expansion\beta\expansion

7. yep

The same mods loaded as in the cmd-fila, which dont work correctly.
It kicks "some" people out and other not.
Even if same client mods are loaded.

So to prevent people from getting kicked out, I can't start with that beta string. I can only use vanilla A2:CO.

8. oohhh

Have they fixed it?

[78048] Fixed: Signatures GameSpy key truncated to at most 200 Bytes. Too long list has caused other GS keys were not available due to overflow.
hmm...I might check this one out....

9. would it be a big deal of making something to make all the clients use the same beta. Like some *.bikey for each beta thats allowed or something.

Having a hard time checking what the clients uses.

10. **I think ive figured it out, ingnore the post below.**

Hey guys, had a quick read though the thread and couldnt see it but does anyone know how I run CO beta STEAM version but also have commands lines in there as well? Im a bit lost and its been ages since I tired any of the arma betas tbh.
