  1. I'm spawning 6 helos (one at a time), flying them into a location, having them land, then spawning infantry on the ground nearby (to simulate them getting out of the helos), then having the helos fly off. It works fine in SP, but when I run it on a dedi server, the helos won't land, they just hover near the landing spot. I do have a bunch of helipads on the ground for them to land on. (More than one gets to the ground simultaneously, so I need multiple.) And as I said, it works fine in SP. I have to think it's something to do with the land command, that it doesn't work the same on a dedicated server. Here's the code called each time through a loop (once per helo spawn) - _airGrp= createGroup east; _Air1 = [getMarkerPos "spawnAir", 0, "O_Heli_Transport_04_covered_F", _AirGrp] call bis_fnc_spawnvehicle; // this spawns the aircraft and includes crew //_Air1 is the VEHICLE array, with the actual vehicle being the first element of the array!! (Select 0) _helo = (_Air1 select 0);//give it a shorter name! _wp1 = _airGrp addWaypoint [getMarkerPos "WPair1", 0]; _wp2 = _airGrp addWaypoint [getMarkerPos "WPair2", 0]; _wp2 setWaypointSpeed "limited"; _wp3 = _airGrp addWaypoint [getMarkerPos "WPair3", 0]; _wp3 setWaypointSpeed "limited"; _wp3 setWaypointStatements ["true", "this flyinHeight 25"]; while {(_helo distance2D (getMarkerPos "WPair3")) >= 100} do { sleep 2; }; sleep 2; doStop _helo; _helo land "land"; while {(getPosATL _helo) select 2 >=1 } do { // hint format ["alt = %1", (getPosATL _helo) select 2]; //debugging only!!!!!!!!!!!!! sleep 1; }; sleep 2;//time to unload (fictional) troops --spawn the infantry now-- sleep 25; _helo doMove (getmarkerPos "WPair4"); _wp4 = _airGrp addWaypoint [getMarkerPos "WPair4", 0]; _wp4 setWaypointType "MOVE"; _wp4 setWaypointSpeed "FULL"; I've had this issue in the past, but it's been years since I dealt with it, and I can't remember a solution! Any clues?
  2. hello! after adding few more AI units to my mission,running on dedicated server, i noticed that when another human player is in the server, things starts to rubberband really badly. strange thing is that if i'm alone, all is fine. first question is : is there a way to test my mission alone and get the rubberbanding like if there was another (or many more) player? second question is: what cause this problem ? and how solve it? i mean, i know its "too many AI", but i noticed differences between script spawned units and 3Deden placed, and more... thanks for any help!
  3. Hi, I'm having a slight issue with my respawn setup. Specifically, the respawn of playable characters that are AI at the moment of death. For some reason, they respawn on the exact location where they died, instead of at the respawn module - it works correctly on listening server. There is one respawn module placed on the map called 'respawn_west' and in the description.ext, I use this: // Respawn type, see the table below respawn = 3; // Delay in seconds before playable unit respawns. respawnDelay = 10; // Respawn templates from CfgRespawnTemplates. You can combine any number of them together. respawnTemplates[] = {"Revive","MenuPosition","Spectator"}; // 0 to disable the score table (it can still be opened manually by pressing 'P' key). respawnDialog = 0; // When 1, the score table contains score of all playable units as opposed to players only. aikills = 1; respawnOnStart = -1; I hope there's a fix for this, as it's really annoying to have AI basically take over the map, dying 20+ times in the process.. As a temporary fix, is there a way to turn off respawn for playable characters that are currently AI controlled? or have a 'onRespawn' script for those?

  6. error thrown on server OS ''include file\x\cba\addons\main\script_macros .hpp not found." this only happens after we login and try to use #missions to change maps or missions. Since discovery i have; 1. updated/reinstalled CBA 2. reinstalled arma3server 3. updated "force_update_app 233780 validate" 4. moved cba in the load order to the top we have been forced to manually shut down and change the loaded mission at start to play different mission, obviously this is a hassle and not efficient. if anyone knows a fix please let me know. thanks again.

  7. Hello togetscher, I installed an Arma 3 dedicated server on a OpenSuseLeap 42.2. All works fine without VON (Voice over Network). What can I do to fix these issue? I tried it in a local virtual maschine and it works. But over the internet it doesnt work. Thanks a lot.
  8. Alright, I have a small dedicated linux server with arma 3 server on it. We do some small scale zeus missions on it, But since day or 2 the server doesn't want to start up any more. Server starts up just how it should without any error, we use some mods like, ACE, CBA, Task force radio, Ares and RHSUSAF. But whenever someone want to join the server, the server see the id of the player etc. but the player stays in the loading screen (no lobby). Player can't get in at all, the server doens't even show any errors. Also tried a vanilla mission didn't work but a APEX campaign mission loaded without any problem.
  9. hi guys ! i've found an awesome script to enable dual primary weapons, that works really good, but has a little problem i noticed only after hours of play. here the script: start it works perfectly, i can die & respawn, go on vehicles or on foot, do everything and it works perfectly. BUT.....after maybe 20 minutes i noticed my "weapon on back" was gone, and script bugged (doesnt asked me to put my weapon on back, as usually. from that day, it happened many other times, in fact i never noticed when the weapon disappear exactly, i just notice it only when i try to switch to my back weapon after many play time. i've tracked down the problem standing still with a "weapon on back" for a long time, and seems it disappear at some point, removing the weapon model and the actions to "take weapon back" or "put weapon on back". i'm pretty sure the problem is the loop that stop working, or maybe something to do with game auto-cleaner removing unused objects. any idea? thanks !
  10. Does anybody sets unit insignias via script? BIS_fnc_setUnitInsignia is not working globally although funtion description states it so. Each player can only see his own insignia. There was a comment in BI page which states [[ player, "111thID"], "BIS_fnc_setUnitInsignia", nil, true, true] call BIS_fnc_MP; can be used but even with this one I am getting same result :( Anybody has a solution?
  11. Hello guys, My linux dedicated server seems to start correct, ports in firewall are set up correct as well but it is not shown in armas in game server browser. System Information: Hardware specs: netstat output: netstat -tulpn | grep 1400 I start the server with this script: My logfile of servers output (stdout and stderr) looks like this: server.cfg: I would be happy if anyone could give me a hint what could be wrong.
  12. I want to create a task that is not bugged on a dedicated multiplayer server. Is it enough to place a trigger make it blufor present and put isServer && this in the condition bar, then synching that trigger to task modules? Or do i HAVE to use scripts to create tasks?
  13. Hey Guys, I made a python script to automate updating my server and figured I'd share. I've only tested it on Python 3.6 but I think it would work for any version. Just update the directories and files section to where your stuff is located. The "Steam Workshop IDs.txt" file just contains the workshop item number and a human readable string which automatically gets changed to a lowercase name without spaces. It uses a symbolic link to add the mods to the server's addons folder instead of moving it so updating works without redownloading everything. I know theres a bunch of GUI server managers out there, but I don't like the complexity that adds and this way I can just SSH from any device to update/boot my server. import os import sys from subprocess import Popen, PIPE, CalledProcessError, DEVNULL, STDOUT, check_call import glob armaServerAppId = "233780" armaClientAppId = "107410" modsDirectory = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\Arma\\Master\\addons\\" keysDirectory = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\Arma\\Master\\keys\\" armaDirectory = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\Arma\\Master" steamCMD = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\steamcmd\\steamcmd.exe" steamContentDirectory = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\steamcmd\\steamapps\\workshop\\content\\" + armaClientAppId + "\\" steamTempScript = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\steamcmd\\tempUpdateScript.txt" steamAuth = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\steamcmd\\auth.txt" workshopItems = "C:\\Users\\arma\\Desktop\\Arma\\Steam Workshop IDs.txt" userLogin = "" userPass = "" def updateServer(): print("Updating Server...") # Get the users login checkUserLogin() os.system(steamCMD + ' +login ' + userLogin + ' ' + userPass + ' +force_install_dir ' + armaDirectory + ' "+app_update ' + armaServerAppId + '" validate +quit') def checkUserLogin(): global userLogin global userPass if userLogin == "": userLogin = input("Steam> Username: ") if userPass == "": userPass = input("Steam> Password: ") def copyKeys(): for filename in glob.iglob(modsDirectory+'**\\*.bikey', recursive=True): os.system("xcopy " + filename + " " + keysDirectory + " /s /y") error = "" os.system('cls') try: with open(steamAuth) as f: for line in f: info = line.split(" ") if len(info) == 2: userLogin = info[0] userPass = info[1] except: pass while True: userInput = input("Main Menu \n1.

  14. Got a question I can't seem to find much on, however I've seen missions that do this... I've been trying to run a server for me and my friends to play when we hop on ArmA, right now I'm using RHS and ALiVE to do some guerrilla style missions, I've been using TADST's "local dedicated" server tool, I've enabled the autoInit "persistence" between player joins, but this obviously has it's downsides. - I'm running on my desktop, if I want to restart my PC, I have to close the server (duh) - I can't do an actual dedicated server, I don't want to pay for one or build a server box, so ALiVE's persistence is out of the question, I tried it's "single player save" but it is too much and crashes So this might be a dumb question, but is there a way I can run this server, and have the server save when I exit, then start back up when I re-join with my friends? Basically the same as ALiVE, but save the data local to my PC. Thanks, Envak
  15. Hello, I am just trying to confirm my thinking. I am editing a mission which I want to run on a dedicated server (on the same machine). I need to test it quite a lot but am finding that you have to shut down the dedicated server each time you make an edit in the editor, then 'export to multiplayer' then restart then server, which all takes so much time. So I am doing this: 1. Open up eden editor. 2. load the mission. 3. make my change. it. 5 'export to multiplayer' 6. start dedi server (takes time) 7. log into server 8. test mission. 9. exit server 10. shut down server 11. go back to eden editor 12 make change etc etc what I want to do is 9. log out of server but keep it open and Open up mission in eden again 10. stuff.. 11 export to MP.... WHILE THE DEDI SERVER IS STILL RUNNING... 12 reconnect to server and play update... It seems to me that the server locks the pbo and despite the fact that if you 'export to multiplayer' the editor squeaks a confirmatory message that it has been successfully exported (which it hasn't). The file timestamp remains the same. I've tried #restart and #restartserver (doesn't seem to do anything). Would anyone know of a way to getting the server to 'release' the pbo file so that I can update it? I presume I am just being thick. Thanks in advance, Atmo
  16. Hello everyone. Every time i'm trying to launch my server, i'm getting an error saying "Out of memory (requested 0 KB). footprint 3750240256 KB. pages 32768 KB." So what i did was i tried to remove all the PBO files, and i found out that it was "Task Force Radio" that made that error occurred. But i don't know what i should do to get it to work. Any help would be appreciated. THANKS.
  17. I'm working on a mission that doesn't have re-spawns and designed for quick firefights. My intention is to design a mission for a dedicated server with the following: If all Blufor (players) are killed, failure If time runs out, failure If all Opfor units are killed, victory Notify all players (even dead) when there is one player remaining Notify all players (even dead) when there is one enemy remaining have the same number of units and type of unit on the enemy side, i.e. 1 autorifleman blufor and 1 autorifleman opfor (shown in the initServer.sqf is already working) My experience with multiplayer scripting is limited and I'm struggling to understand why it works in local hosted multiplayer (as the host alone) but not on dedicated servers, issues include: After starting the operation using the action (see flowgraph) the LastMan.sqf will start running immediately, even with 2 blufor players Server, after starting the operation using the action, will stop updating unit positions and AI will not react. All players except yourself are running in place, coupled with sudden spikes in framerate loss when initially activated and unable to kill enemies. Enemies don't react to being shot or standing directly in front of them even. this problem isn't present on the locally hosted Possibly an issue of the server ending the mission locally but not for clients (just a guess)? Mission must still be working enough to continue the countdown timer, mission fails properly when timer reaches zero Maybe I should be getting rid of triggers entirely? But it always seemed like they synced across multiplayer better Using the trigger and (count Thislist < 2) is that when all remaining players enter one vehicle, it counts as one unit and starts the trigger Tried using setting the triggers to server only and using Bis_fnc_MP but led to the mission immediately ending upon starting the operation action Code Flowgraph Mission Source Thanks for the help on this issue
  18. Hi everyone, Here is the code i use to create task -childtask here for meeting point- for the dedicated server: [[west, ["Task1A","Task1"], [" <br /> Sub-Task Description Here. <br /> ", "Sub-Task Title", ""], (getMarkerPos "Task1MeetingPoint"), true] spawn BIS_fnc_taskCreate] call BIS_fnc_MP; I guess Arma 3 Tasks Overhaul somehow are used for notification icons. I wonder if i could use image below with the above code and how? Thank you for your help in advance.
  19. Hi, I am looking for a hosting company (dedicated or not) for a vanilla Arma3 server for 100-120 slots. This server will be used for a massive clan, with members from all over Europe, so a centralized server would be preferable (France, Germany etc). I've had a dedicated server before, running Dayz Epoch, with, but although the machine was a Xeon, there was some 'rubbering' ingame so i am having some seconds thoughts about dedicated servers. I have no idea how the server specs have changed during this last year that i went MIA from Arma, so i guess i am wondering if its worth the trouble to even bother with a full dedicated server instead of a web-panel based one. Any input would be highly appreciated.
  20. Hey all, Can someone please share the information on how to remove the stock campaign missions from the vote menu ? I assume I can just delete them from the \Addons directory but that will mean that I have to eliminate them every update ... correct ? Is there a better way to get rid of them and still allow players to vote for the maps ?
  21. Hi, I don't know much about scripting and have no idea about developing kind of stuff but i can say i am a good EDEN user. Both "PRESENT" and "NOT PRESENT" settings -i guess whole trigger thing- are not working on Dedicated Server at 1.62 Is it a known bug or something i miss? Because it is working at local. Any help would really be appreciated, thanks in advance. (FYI, Steam ARMA3 1.62.x also DEV user at 1.65.138056 )
  22. I have a decent understanding of locality. And I've read the Biki pages on BIS_fnc_MP and remoteExec. I understand that remoteExec is the newer, preferred approach, but that the other still works too. But I have not been able to wrap my head around the syntax/usage of either of these. So I'm asking for someone who really does understand them to expand on what the Biki has and explain the usage -not just syntax, but how to use it in different situations. A variety of examples (and why it's done the way it's done in each example, and the effects of the variations) would be awesome. Anyone able to do this? It'd be a real benefit to all of us who make multiplayer missions!
  23. Hello! I had to create a workaround* when using triggers to be able to broadcast sound effects with hints to all connected clients (on dedicated server) and all is good excluding the fact that I'm unable to use the sound I'd like to, probably because I don't know how to correctly reference it (incorrect filename or something the like). I'm using remoteExec to broadcast sounds to all connected clients. Using the method is tried and tested to work with vanilla sound Alarm: "Alarm" remoteExec ["playSound"]; As for the sound file I'd like to use, I tried to use absolute(?) path and filename with and without the extension, like so: "a3\missions_f_beta\data\sounds\firing_drills\checkpoint_not_clear.wss" "checkpoint_not_clear.wss" "checkpoint_not_clear" but all these depending on what I was trying at the time of testing were returned with Sound nnnn not found. When we're talking about vanilla sounds there should not be the need to grab that one sound file I'd like to use and add it to my mission (and then reference the sound from the mission folder) or is there? So how do I correctly reference A3 vanilla sounds to be used in a trigger? Is there perchance a separate config file somewhere that would show the correct names of the sound files with which to reference them? Or should I use setSoundEffect (but I still wouldn't know how to correctly reference the sound file)? * It's all fun and games when you are creating a multiplayer mission and it's sort of slowly closing to be "finalized any moment now!". You've been testing it meticulously by running it as multiplayer mission through the in-game editor. And when you switch to dedicated server to test not much of the already established to be working is actually working, like simple triggers with hints and trigger (sound) effects.
  24. I've very nice news about headless client (HC) which is variant of dedicated client for server use we will be rolling out soon (days) new test version for both linux and windows - no more steamclient nor steam account with game ownership needed for HC - HC needs only steam dedicated server binary and set of commandline params - auto-connection recognize & detection of HC by server (server needs some config to allow that) - multiple HC per server are supported - HC can be primary used to offload AI work and secondary for some script jobs - logic for mission & scripting operations with HC introduced - HC are autoassigned to slots - HC are not visible to players - HC are visible to admins - HC isn't counted against playercount in server list - BattlEye supported (1.36 RC2 released 28.11.2014 18:00 CET) today's DEV: •Added: Enable new headless client implementation - see for more details note: known limitation, none (except some AI bugs, need repro/confirm) note: what needs to be somewhat tested/determined/improved/changed is disconnect & reconnect of HC and all related to that post bugs, feedback and ideas below
  25. Hey everyone, we have released a first iteration of the Linux Dedicated Server as reported in SITREP #38. It's still a little bit experimental so we would very much appreciate your feedback and experience running it. Please report any bugs to our Feedback tracker (use the fields Platform, OS and OS Version to describe you distro as best as you can) while general feedback should go directly into this thread. There are some known issues so be aware of them when you run the server: Also note that java version 7 is required to run the server (even though it's disabled in-game) so you will have to set path to '' correctly for your distro. Example usage on my debian: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/lib/i386/jamvm ./arma3server -netlog -config=Arma3_Server.cfg Enjoy!
