Server issue - missions not loaded fully

Recommended Posts

Im starting to think its our server thats bugged.

First this: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?t=85161

But now i tried another mission. All my missions works flawless on local MP, but when hosting on dedicated - either description hasnt been loaded as respawn, disabledAI or other scripts couldnt be found or wasnt activated.

I should say, there is nothing wrong with my description or script files. Alot of guys went through them and didnt find any mistakes.



Example ArmA2 configuration file

by [KH]Jman, 1st July 2009. http://www.kellys-heroes.eu

These example numbers are for a 2.5Ghz Quad Core Xeon on a 100mBit connection.


















Bandwidth the server is guaranteed to have (in bps).

This value helps server to estimate bandwidth available.

Increasing it to too optimistic values can increase lag and CPU load

as too many messages will be sent but discarded. Default: 131072




Bandwidth the server is guaranteed to never have.

This value helps the server to estimate bandwidth available.




Maximum number of messages that can be sent in one simulation cycle.

Increasing this value can decrease lag on high upload bandwidth servers. Default: 128


MaxMsgSend = 1024;


Maximum size of guaranteed packet in bytes (without headers).

Small messages are packed to larger frames.

Guaranteed messages are used for non-repetitive events like shooting. Default: 512


MaxSizeGuaranteed = 1024;


Maximum size of non-guaranteed packet in bytes (without headers).

Non-guaranteed messages are used for repetitive updates like soldier or vehicle position.

Increasing this value may improve bandwidth requirement, but it may increase lag. Default: 256


MaxSizeNonguaranteed = 64;


Minimal error to send updates across network.

Using a smaller value can make units observed by binoculars or sniper rifle to move smoother.

Default: 0.01


MinErrorToSend = 0.0025;


Users with custom faces or custom sounds larger than this size are kicked when trying to connect.

Use this wisely as it can be the cause of alot of Join in Progress lag.

1600000 = 160k

Anything looks suspicious or anything to you guys?

Dedicated is different in that locality is a factor. Scripts might run on the server, one client, all clients, or all clients plus server... Have you got all that handled?
