Only one Server on the 2302 Port can run with Battleye atm, hope they fix this asap. 


They dont give me any information at the feedback site, but a friend found a twitter Post.

But this is Sad, i dont use twitter and i wish they would give more Information via. feedback.bistudio.com

This is not the same problem (if it is problem at all) however it concerns both of listed products.


I have such bat file to run server under windows (for better maintenance):


@echo off
::set SERVER_EXE="d:\games\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3server_x64.exe"
set SERVER_EXE=arma3server_x64.exe
set PORT=-port=2302
set BASIC=-cfg="d:\Users\a\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\SOME_server\basic.cfg"
set CONFIG=-config="d:\Users\a\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\SOME_server\server.cfg"
set PROFILES=-profiles="d:\Users\a\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\SOME_server"
set MODS=-mod="D:\games\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@my_addons\shared\@task_force_radio;D:\games\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@my_addons\shared\@CBA_A3;D:\games\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@my_addons\shared\@rhsafrf;D:\games\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\@my_addons\shared\@rhsusaf"
set OTHERS=-world=empty -enableHT
@echo on


in my CONFIG file I have BattlEye = 0;

But during start of the server I see BattlEye server initialization messages. Is that mean BE started and will be used or it starts everytime - no matter what but may be or not to be used?

When you start the Server with BattlEye = 0; then its off. You can see it at the BEserver.cfg, if its in use then it changes the name like BEServer_active_xyzy.cfg.

But dont forget, when you turn of BattlEye your BE filter will not Work, your Rcon tool will not work and the Bans.txt will not load.

Then why I see in server window:


17:18:52 Dedicated host created.
17:19:01 BattlEye server updated to version: 217
17:19:01 BattlEye Server: Initialized (v1.217)
17:19:01 Host identity created.
17:19:01 Game Port: 2302, Steam Query Port: 2303



In rpt of the server I see:


== d:\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3server_x64.exe
== "d:\steam\steamapps\common\Arma 3\arma3server_x64.exe"  -port=2302 -cfg="d:\Users\r\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\server\basic.cfg" -config="d:\Users\r\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\server\server.cfg" -profiles="d:\Users\r\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\server"  -world=empty -enableHT

When you run Port 2302 it should run anyway with BE. 

But at this moment they released a Hotfix for the BE Port stuff, and yeah.... seems like it works for me.

Thx BiS :)

It was my mistake.

Instead of:

set BASIC=-cfg="d:\Users\a\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\SOME_server\basic.cfg"

Should be:


set BASIC="-cfg=d:\Users\a\Documents\Arma 3 - Other Profiles\SOME_server\basic.cfg"

And similar in other lines.

This is small error, but very significant.
