ArmA 3 Server Tools

by JSRS-Studios

The ArmA 3 Server Tools allows you to simply create an ArmA 3 MP Server without any experience.
It provides the possibility to start the server without any annoying batch you would have to create.

Overview of the functions:

-Download/Update the ArmA 3 files via SteamCMD
-Create the Server.cfg via a simple surface.
-Starting the ArmA 3 Server
-Monitoring the ArmA 3 Sever (Restarts the ArmA 3 Server if it crashes)
-Starting with BEC (Battleye Extended Controls)
-Monitoring the CPU
-start with Headless Client function
-basic.cfg editor

The monitoring of the process can be rebooted without problems through BEC without the BEC scheduler.
So if BEC closes your ArmA 3 server (for example #shutdown) A3ST will automatically reboot if you want. This can be determined by a checkbox within the program.
If you don't like to install Steam on your server A3ST allows you to download ArmA3 via SteamCMD, either the stable or the developer build.

Info:
A3ST will not safe your Account Data (Name, Password). The program itself wont connect to the internet, your data is safe!

Important:
Do not use other mirrors then these given here in this thread!
You are not allowed to mirror this programm without my permission!
You are not allowed to edit the programcode!

Nice tool!

Did you consider to add a difficulty settings editor?

Help: Got a crash? Report it! What is the RPT log file?

cheers

-name=PROFILE is the startup parameter to determine what is to be used.
Best used in combination with -profiles=c:\location\of\stuff.

A3ST is not Dead.
We are currently working on a Webadministration Panel to Manage your Server over a slim Webpanel.
The Webpanal your server allows you to start / stop to change settings and monitor the Server.
I hope to complete it in the next 3 weeks

hmm. can you explain a bit more how this will work?
does this mean that you'll include a webserver into a3st? ie: http://123.456.789.100:8080 ?
and allow start/stop, change settings by the web browser?

You dont need to Open Ports.
Its very Esay.

Step by Step:
1. Start the Programm
2. Setting up your Server
3. Sign up on A3ST Tool Website (will released in few weeks)
4. Enter (Key, token and Username)
5. Login on the A3ST Tool Website
6. Start/stop/restart and modify your Tool Settings over the Website

Very esay and Non-Profit. Its free
You dont need expensive web panels like TCAdmin

Currently, the tool already looks like this

Its working, but the Webpanel is currently not finished

Just tried the A3ST hostingtool but i haven't got it working yet..keeps saying: Server creation failed :0, cannot start host on port 0.
I did not had a port given in the field ArmA startup argument but it doesn't matter which port i place there in the -port=2302 for example.
Any suggestions are welcome :-)

Feature Request: Auto-start on launch. I have a program that checks if A3ST hangs, kills it, and relaunches it. But I would need to click start to make the server actually run. An auto-start on launch option would help create some self sufficiency.

Ability run batch commands on the server via the web interface would also be a good idea. E.g run any cmd file remotely without RDP access
