  1. Hey, after roughly 5000hrs of CTI on Arma 3 and 90hrs on the Conflict gamemode in Arma Reforger, here is some some things I noticed: Its great that you added med boxes with bandages to the smaller towns, but for some reason Military Base Levie and Military base Villeneuve dont seem to have any. (Or am i blind?) Why is the number of radio backpacks in larger military based (Matros, Levie , Villeneuve, etc) limited but in small camps you can get an unlimited amount? (In the radio tent you can get an unlimited amount). Wouldn't it make more sense the other way around? Mobile HQ engine should be disabled when deployed so new players dont accidentally take it and drive away. Many dont seem to understand what the MHQ does, and it can be very frustrating when you spend a lot of time to bring and hide it near the front line. Then somebody just drives it into the enemy camp and gets it destroyed. It is impossible to dissembled e.g. the armory in order to change its side. AI of towns sometimes spawns on the location of armory / vehicle depots, forcing you to kill them in order to be able to construct them (happens e.g. Quarry) Spawning on someone with a radio backpack spawns you exactly inside them: The radio operator might kill you, when hes shooting while you are spawning You are stuck inside each other, neither can move. You have to go prone to get unstuck Constantly people spawning inside you, getting you stuck is very annoying. I must note however, that the backpack spawning mechanic is really nice in general, as the make people automatically form squads on the fly. The Field Manual about constructing structures does not explain how to rotate them. Why no backpacks on the armory? At least in only on big mil bases? (Levie and Villeneuve) Makes it very difficult to utilized the LMGs, as you can not take a spare magazine for them (doesnt fit into default clothing). Many towns have 0 bunkers than can be placed (or rather are actually usefull), while others have dozens in a larger radius around the town. Add a few locations that could be favorable for e.g. Machine gun nests especially on key towns, in almost 90 hrs of Conflict I have not see them get used once. Meaux is a positive example. The bunkers actualy provide cover for both attacker and defender, and can be used to e.g. watch the street. Similar this should be done on other towns especially on key towns at large highways: Tyrone has pretty much no useful bunkers that can be build, despite being fairly open and a key location (e.g on the road to Hornbeam Valley, or the road to Montignac) Simons Wood is also very open and flat, next to a big road, yet almost nothing can be build there Some sort of respawn for AI defending a location should be added, in late game there is usually nobody defending any objective, especially in towns far behind the front line. As a result it becomes a "town rushing", where you race from one town to the next as fast as possible. Maybe an option to respawn town defense on the command center in exchange for supplies? Or like Naval bases these towns should be reinforced automatically every 30min if they are "secure" Spawn locations inside towns are weird. Sometimes the spawn point is inside the tent, sometimes outside. Sometimes in the center of an open field with no cover nearby (e.g. as in Mil base Levie). Is that intentional for balance? As a result on some towns it becomes very easy to just lock down the spawn, by spawn killing. Sometimes spawns are too close to the radio. This makes it very hard to capture the town, as enemies can respawn next to you while you configure the radio. Meaning you need to deplete all their spawns first before being able to cap the point. This is not possible alone and needs at least 3-4 people to accomplish. Balance: Overall the Russian forces currently seem quite a bit stronger. Not only do they by default have a Full automatic rifle, but they also have access to 45 round mags, and vehicles like the BTR. The full automatic rile is a big advantage in cqb. Vehicles like BTR are not very strong in fire power, but the armor allows somebody to sit inside and act as a fairly secure spawning point. While armed Humvees are faster, the gunner is exposed and an easy target, so is the driver and the other passengers. Russian forces can also get ammunition for free from the green forces, as they also use AKs, RPGs and SVGs. This allows you to operate longer without having to switch weapons or worry about ammunition. Bugs (I try not to list engine specific issues): Armories tend to revered to the american side when the server crashes and a save is loaded. (Noticed it on Military base Levie) Sometimes disconnected users with a radio backpack retain their spawnpoint, allowing you to spawn on it forver, and the enemy cant do anything about. Though Most of the time spawning on it gets you killed (spawning in the sky or under ground). Edit: I think this is related to the invisible glitch Respawn screen is terribly inconsistent. Sometimes even allows you to spawn on already lost towns. incorrectly shows 0s to spawn on radio backpacks when its still 30s+ randomly spawns you at other towns spawns you at a different undesired location when the selected spawn point becomes unviable towns have to be re-slected multiple times to ensure you are spawning at the correct location Spawning on someone while he is in a car, can cause you to first be placed in front of the car before being moved into a seat. This can kill you instantly as the car will run you over before the script can move you. It is also very confusing for the driver, as he cant tell if somebody actually spawning in the car, or spawned on the road and is left behind.# Disconnected users sometimes leave their body behind, this comes in the form of an unkillable AI that just stands around. Often found on spawn points in towns. (Cleanup needed). Sometimes during capturing a base radio, the progress is reset and you have to start anew. Overall I really like the game mode so far. The dynamics of player squads, of attackers and defenders, works well. Key towns like Tyrone, Meaux , Montignac, Entre Deux, Matros, and Provins make really great for battles due to their terrain and connection to the road.

  4. Im not sure what you mean with "display current online players as a locked discord channel" The !players+ command provides just the nationality: The !player command is just intended for admins only.

    unable to connect 0x2002

    Please stick to the forum rules and only use the english language. BI is aware of the issue and are working to resolve it. Currently no ETA on when the login service will be back up.
  6. Stable release 0.7.0 is out now! https://github.com/Yoshi-E/ArmaRconDiscordBot/releases/tag/0.7.0 New Log Reader: Provides information about each mission played (Mission name, ID, time, ...) Provides an Event Handler for each log entry. Filters useless messages from log files Documentation Improvements: New interface and tooltips for the settings page Stability improvements New command: "history" --> Lists recently played missions from the mission buffer. Now boots even faster! More useful error messages. Warning on boot, should no log files be found
  7. Yes I agree, that will be improved in the new version. Thats weird, if it is shown in the console, it should also be visible in the server.log /.rpt. Maybe check your arma server settings. For now the focus is on refactoring the code and improving the stability and usability (improved error messages, etc). The new server log reader is almost done.

    Ask us anything!

    No. However the game can be downloaded on steam for free. Creating a Steam account is also free and only takes a few minutes at most.
  9. For account related issues please contact the support. Use the same email you used in this Forum: support@bistudio.com  Inside the email, please provide as much detail about your issue and the related Accounts as possible.    Regards   Yoshi_E  Bohemia Interactive Forum Moderation
  10. you can attach an event handler to the unit to decrease the damage taken: this would be e.g 4 times the hp (only takes 0.25 or 25% of the damage).
  11. Ah for some reason an invisible char made it into the code and broke it. Fixed now
  12. It says something along the lines of "Stopped Reconnecting - Too many reconnects!" right? In the settings "modules/rcon", the setting "max_reconnects_per_minute" should regulate that. By default the bot will try to reconnect 10s after it loses connection. So if max_reconnects_per_minute = 3 means that it will give up after 3 attempts or ~30s. With max_reconnects_per_minute = 7 it should try forever. Just published a new version where the IP is hidden.
  13. @Raymond John Clarke I added it as a module, simply update to the latest version, and you should be able to enable the module "modules/rcon_join_msg" it in the settings. Some settings require the bot to be restart after change. Setting menu is still WIP.
  14. The rcon module is already included in the bot. https://github.com/Yoshi-E/ArmaRconDiscordBot/blob/master/modules/rcon/module.py#L311-L329 The variable "message" contains the message produced by rcon. For example message = "16:53:53 | (Side) Max: opfor here at kali" or message = "16:27:52 | Player #6 Max disconnected" "16:59:23 | Player #8 Max ( connected" you would need a simple regex or if statements to filter them out. Edit: The out comment else block in that code is not quite correct. Connect messages contain a „:“ therefore the split condition there is wrong for what your are planing to do to send the message to a specific channel simply do this: 0123456789 here is the channel id. You can copy the channel id by right clicking a channel directly from discord, if you have the developer mode enabled in the discord settings (Appearance --> Advanced --> Developer mode). channel = self.bot.get_channel(0123456789) await channel.send("Player {} connected".format("Max")) Currently I'm refactoring the entire structure, soonish custom stuff can be easily added in extra modules.

    Discord temporary ban not being lifted

    Please message moderators directly regarding bans, moderation and other request as stated in our guidelines. -FM- messaged you, this topic is now closed.
  16. A yes, my bad, there were some not used packages in there. Should be good now.
  17. Make sure you are using the latest version (from today). with "!monitords" (no number) you should get the performance displayed in discord (only 5 times). The erroneous message was also corrected. The bot takes a list of all log files (*.log and *.rpt) files in the given directory and sorts them by name. Then it takes the most recent one as the current log to read from. The current log file should be displayed in the console. The commands do not support value assignments, simply leave the "time=". time = 0 simply means the default value is 0 --> which is a permanent ban. !addBan 0123456789 60 You are a bad boy I am not sure what you mean
  18. The command "monitords" does this now by default (displays the performance for the next 5 seconds)
  19. For deletion requests and other account related issues please contact the support. Use the same email you used in this Forum: support@bistudio.com  Inside the email, please state clearly that you want your Forum account and other Bohemia accounts removed.    Regards  Yoshi_E Bohemia Interactive Forum Moderation
  20. You cant use "\" in the config file, python / json doesnt like it. Replace all of them with "/". So e.g. instead of "D:\Server\arma\Arma3server_x64" write "D:/Server/arma/Arma3server_x64" If you need further troubleshoot, we can write on discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/YhBUUSr) or here in Forum DM.
  21. @VitalyTurboVaz packages updated Rcon Module (0.1.6): Bugs fixes Added UTF-8 Support Discord Module: Updated requirements Bug fixes Added UTF-8 Support Added "rcon_custom" module (inactive by default): Posts a message whenever a user was banned / unbanned.

    Error with config.ccp

    We are aware of the issue, however we Moderators nor BI can directly do something about it. Invision Community has to fix it, even though they are probably not causing it. I will see if we can push this issue forward. As far as I can tell it’s caused by certain software / OS when certain text formatting is used. its a BOM char „zero width no-break space“ char https://www.fileformat.info/info/unicode/char/feff/index.htm unicode: Oct 0177377 Dec 65279 Hex 0xFEFF HTML &#65279 This should allow you to just search and replace it (in any decent editor). An online tool like this: https://pteo.paranoiaworks.mobi/diacriticsremover/ can also be used to remove them.
  23. I already figured out a simple solution for his problem on Discord with him. https://pastebin.com/i4nhrnLB the same commands are also in the main bot too. The discord bot is now a proper standalone Discord bot, rather than just a Cogs module. Improved code structure. Added new commands: Get a notification when a player types specific keywords on the server: addKeyWord Add a keyword to triggers a DM to you. (Use „\_“ as space) removeKeyWord Removes a keyword listKeyWords Lists all your keywords setNotification Mute the bot, or tell him to send those messages only when you are online. streamChat streams all messages from the arma 3 server into the channel where you used the command. (Is persistent) stopStream Stops the stream The following commands are disabled until configured: start Starts the arma Server Binary stop Stops the arma Server (only works on Windows for now) In the Core Module you can also configure the channels the bots listens to now. Useful if you have multiple instances of the same bot.

    Arma 3 Photography : Questions and Comments

    @Siege-A You should be aware that your mod was under a lock down due to various reports and that until the situation is resolved, it will remain locked and hidden in the Forum. A situation which you, USP already accepted and agreed on internally with us. You can find this general rule in our guidelines: Related content, which can include screenshots and advertisement, can also be hidden until the issue is resolved. This is again, a guideline and not a definite rule or law. However it should clearly advise, that it is better for one to abstain from making new posts about the suspect at hand. Other moderators have informed you so as well, in private & public: The issue was not considered resolved,when directly after your publication, a DMCA was filed against your mod. So we extended the period to wait until the DMCA is resolved. Considering the history with your mod and your previous rule violations, I hope it is understandable that we extended the observation period, until all of us can be certain that there is no further rule violation. We can understand that you want to share your mod as fast as possible with the community. However prematurely unlocking everything, before we both can be certain that no further issue will occur, would only lead to possible confusion on all sides. To answer your individual questions: This is false, as the reason you are not allowed to post is not that "your mod thread here is locked", but rather due to the in already in private discussed rule violations and the current investigation as described above. As stated in the Arma 3 Photos Thread, "Private addons" should not be used in screenshots, only public addons.". Your mod at the time was not published (private), thus the images were taken down without notice. They will remain hidden until the issue is resolved, as stated above. If the communication about the rule violations has been unclear, we will try to improve on it in the future. I hope I have answered your questions, if anything is left unclear, do not hesitate to ask us again. Regards Yoshi_E Bohemia Forum Moderation
