Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead - Linux Standalone Server 1.60

===============================================================

For more information please visit

http//community.bistudio.com/wiki/ArmA:_Dedicated_Server"]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

by "chkconfig" (see info/man).

Server still shows yellow icon when launched without addons and red icon with cba and ace2. How can I at least make it not be red?

Confirmed custom face working.

Edit: If you use requiredBuild = 90242; as suggested server will show red in browser, but you will be able to connect to it. Removing this will make it yellow.

I run CWR2, Thirsk and Wintercamo, shows green without PW, yellow key with PW enabled.

One issue noticed is new missions (still) often need to be loaded twice to behave correctly. Don't know if it's Nix-related, server-related or "this is just how it is" :)

Just have to thanks BIS for magic done with 1.60 :) +1 (yet again).

Sorry not to report this issue before, it's from server log:

Pre 1.60.92364:

19:15:33 Overlord uses modified data file - Arma 2;Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead;@CBA;@gdt_grass;@stmov;@sthud;@Thirsk;@Winte
19:15:33 Player Overlord connecting.
19:15:33 Player Overlord connected (id=*******).

1.60.92364:

20:46:55 Overlord uses modified data file
20:46:55 Player Overlord connecting.
20:46:56 Player Overlord connected (id=*******).

Notice the lack of mods in use? Is it intended?

Pre 1.60.92364 all mods was (partly) logged. Starting with BIS required stuff, which fills up most of the (available) space, then what it's room for on that line. With 1.60.92364 it's only logged player's using modified data file.

If it's possible I would like a more complete list of players loaded mods, maybe without BIS stuff (which is needed anyway)?
