Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead - Linux Standalone Server 1.60
===============================================================

Copyrigt © 2010 Bohemia Interactive Studio. All rights reserved.

For more information please visit
http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA:_Dedicated_Server[/SIZE[/URL]]


Installation instructions:
==========================

1. Following programs must have been installed on your Linux-box:
tar, gcc. Optional: md5sum (for setup integrity check)

1a. On some verions of Linux (this was reported for RedHat 9
and Gentoo linux 2.4.20) the NSCD deamon must be installed to
run ArmA 2 server successfully. Caching of DNS would be sufficient.

2. Copy the whole "ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead" directory from Windows
to some Linux-directory (arma2arrowhead). DON'T DO ANY DATA CONVERSIONS
(even "dos2unix" translation of text files is not necessary).
Example: you can use PKZIP (WinZip, PowerArchiver, etc.) on
Windows and "unzip" on Linux.
Don't use upper case letters in the ArmA2 directory name
(/home/bob/arma2arrowhead will be good, /home/bob/ArmA2ArrowHead
may cause some troubles).
ArmA2 directory should contain subdirectories "Addons", "Bin",
"Campaigns", etc.

3. Copy the "server-x.xx.tar.gz" (x.xx is version number) file into
the arma2arrowhead directory. Unpack and install it with commands:

arma2arrowhead$ tar -xjf server-x.xx.tar.bz2
arma2arrowhead$ ./install

Watch the messages - they will inform you whether your installation
is successful.

4. Dedicated server can be started in foreground:

arma2arrowhead$ ./server

Or in background:

o$ nohup ./server > out.txt 2> err.txt &
[1] <pid>

5. Running server can be stopped by executing:

$ kill -s SIGINT <pid>

Where <pid> is process-id of mother server thread (printed out in
"nohup" command).

6. ArmA2 ArrowHead server has a feature: command-line parameter
"-pid=<pid_file>". It causes creation of <pid_file> with
PID of root ArmA2 process. If IP port specified in "-port=<nn>"
parameter is busy (in usage), ArmA2 will terminate immediately
and <pid_file> won't be written..

7. The "arma2server" script is provided for automatic server
start/restart/status query/etc. Please be sure to edit
CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS in lines 12 to 18 !
After this is done, install (hard-link?) the script into
"/etc/rc.d/init.d/arma2server" file. After that it can be managed
[SIZE=1]by "chkconfig" (see info/man).

WOW, comes fast now, new nix releases :)

Thank you BIS and Big D, will check it out.
Amazing work with the 1.60 branch too :shine:


Edit:
Custom face shows up in MP, but owner of that face spawn into one character and custom face on another when human player is killed....
Noticed once, the actual player JIP, later on he spawned with his custom face.

OK, this is what happened:
One player JIP, got killed and re-spawned in AI slot. Strange thing was that he (the human player) got a default face, and by end of that mission we got aware of another AI running around with the human players (the JIP one) custom face. Never seen it before, or later for that sake.
Later on, when we played other missions (he got him self killed again), he re-spawned in AI slots and kept his custom face.
I don't really see this as a problem/issue since we normally play without AIs, but other servers might. Would be nice if other have noticed the same effect.

Server showed up green on 89244, no password, BE enabled, CWR2 enabled +other mods. But as always, when PW is enabled, it show an orange key, 90909 too.


OT: any suggestions for good FPS counter?
Used FRAPS and was happy with that, reported 40-60 FPS. After 1.60 it's gone crazy, report 70 (running in dense forest) to 150 in open ground. No, I have not changed GFX or other settings, just patched to 1.60...... ( :) )

Installed and up and running!

I see BIS's game, [they] release a shockingly underwhelming product, only to lull us into a false sense of disappointment...

These two issues are still present:

Bug #17313: [Linux DS] Date format wrong
Bug #23261: Linux server strips the first slash on some command line options, at least -cfg/-config

there are very minor. There is bigger fish to fry.
Also, seems to be pretty stable. Although ram usage is til la little high, after a few days running 1.4G
