    Thanks .kju. Will look into that. (Maybe I'm too old, but forums seem like better places to discuss) 😛

    1.90 update - Troubleshooting

    Just tried it. With signature checking enabled and BattleEye disabled. Still getting stuck at the black pre-mission screen.

    1.90 update - Troubleshooting

    OK, I updated the server again and confirmed that the latest hotfix is now running (see below): However this unfortunately didn't fix it. Client still gets blank "pre-mission" loading screen as described in my above post. I confirmed that I do not have any of the .pbo files listed above. deleting the cache.ch on the server had no effect Where is the .rpt log file on a Linux server? Last few dozen lines of console

    1.90 update - Troubleshooting

    Running Linux dedicated server 1.90. I'm having the problem where the client never makes it to the mission selection screen. (I hear waves and can see the chat text however). I disabled all the mods on the server, same issue. I disabled signature checking (verifySignatures = 0;), and the issue goes away, I can connect with client and select/load missions. Where does the linux server put the .rpt log? No joy finding it. (find /home/steam -name *.rpt turns up nothing). Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this further? How do I know if I have the Hotfix installed? Unsuccessful troubleshooting so far: Disabled Mods Deleted cache.ch My startup script Last few lines on server console
  7. Hello, I'm running a dedicated Linux server. Everything was running pretty well on 1.88, but since I updated the server to 1.90 when I connect with my windows client All I get is a black screen. I can see the MOTD text and the text chat works. I can hear the sound of waves washing ashore. But everything is black. I can join other servers, but not mine. I've set my server launch parameters to strip out all mods via -mod= Here is the tail end of the console output.. 20:23:43 ============================================================================================= List of mods =============================================================================================== 20:23:43 modsReadOnly = true 20:23:43 safeModsActivated = false 20:23:43 customMods = false 20:23:43 hash = '4A7D834463C565217A5EB6E75BF39DDDD5CC78C2' 20:23:43 hashShort = '9a0e7390' 20:23:43 name | modDir | default | origin | hash | hashShort | fullPath 20:23:43 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 20:23:43 Arma 3 DLC Bundle 2 | dlcbundle2 | true | NOT FOUND | | | 20:23:43 Arma 3 DLC Bundle 1 | dlcbundle | true | NOT FOUND | | | 20:23:43 Arma 3 Tanks | tank | true | GAME DIR | 4a14e1ecf1af89ea98224b8f1095e9b61301853e | cdc7127 | /home/steam/arma3/public/tank 20:23:43 Arma 3 Tac-Ops | tacops | true | GAME DIR | 149f08abc660fd423b38466b4a9d682c410f98e4 | db38c30 | /home/steam/arma3/public/tacops 20:23:43 Arma 3 Laws of War | orange | true | GAME DIR | 31f89051969e29ea553203c32ca7972501c7b61b | 92db45c3 | /home/steam/arma3/public/orange 20:23:43 Arma 3 Malden | argo | true | GAME DIR | d8d3ac60c3a99f8414a094d0591c65eea7efc8fd | e2934170 | /home/steam/arma3/public/argo 20:23:43 Arma 3 Jets | jets | true | GAME DIR | 408eb80d493aa11fd0d3b8516f65c06596e2b14d | 2a311e2c | /home/steam/arma3/public/jets 20:23:43 Arma 3 Apex | expansion | true | GAME DIR | e458e8b4066613b11f951911ee8d525c9f2f98aa | a9afa646 | /home/steam/arma3/public/expansion 20:23:43 Arma 3 Marksmen | mark | true | GAME DIR | 2a255977a9b3a0180e2aa427c1fca640e5c0fe7f | f1016c78 | /home/steam/arma3/public/mark 20:23:43 Arma 3 Helicopters | heli | true | GAME DIR | 6a714914a9be47e5fde481c2a28288af05aa6687 | 6cb72e94 | /home/steam/arma3/public/heli 20:23:43 Arma 3 Karts | kart | true | GAME DIR | 4581dd3a8ab3b5b7864eabded04f77c864edc4b4 | 3e38263e | /home/steam/arma3/public/kart 20:23:43 Arma 3 Zeus | curator | true | GAME DIR | 2f79d7e68f01c426656a12e210984bfd580117be | e210394d | /home/steam/arma3/public/curator 20:23:43 Arma 3 | A3 | true | NOT FOUND | | | 20:23:43 ========================================================================================================================================================================================================== 20:23:43 InitSound ... 20:23:43 InitSound - complete 20:23:43 Dedicated host created. 20:23:43 PhysX3 SDK Init started ... 20:23:43 PhysX3 SDK Init ended. 20:23:47 core\skyobject\skyobject.p3d: No geometry and no visual shape 20:23:47 a3\data_f\krater.p3d: No geometry and no visual shape 20:23:47 a3\data_f\koule.p3d: No geometry and no visual shape 20:23:48 Warning Message: You cannot play/edit this mission; it is dependent on downloadable content that has been deleted. a3_characters_f 20:23:48 Loading movesType CfgGesturesMale 20:23:48 Animation a3\anims_f\data\anim\sdr\gst\gestureempty.rtm not found or empty 20:23:48 MovesType CfgGesturesMale load time 277 ms 20:23:48 Loading movesType CfgMovesMaleSdr 20:24:03 MovesType CfgMovesMaleSdr load time 14372 ms 20:24:03 a3\characters_f\proxies\flag.p3d: No geometry and no visual shape 20:24:03 BattlEye Server: Initialized (v1.217) Setting breakpad minidump AppID = 107410 20:24:03 Game Port: 2302, Steam Query Port: 2303 20:24:03 Initializing Steam server - Game Port: 2302, Steam Query Port: 2303 Arma 3 Console version 1.90.145385 x86 : port 2302 20:24:03 Host identity created. 20:24:07 Connected to Steam servers 20:34:41 Mettius uses modified data file 20:34:57 BEServer::finishDestroyPlayer(565900766): users.get failed 20:34:57 Player Mettius disconnected.
  8. I updated the server. Also tried commenting out voteMissionPlayers. But still getting the blank screen when I join the server.
  9. Hello Folks, I'm trying to host a mission downloaded from the workshop on my new dedicated Linux server (my server running OpenSuSE Leap 42.3). However, I can't seem to get it to appear on the server. I downloaded the mission via steamcmd: workshop_download_item 107410 230239528 This resulted in the directory: /home/steam/Steam/steamapps/workshop/content/107410/230239528 with a single file in it: 940560531083087031_legacy.bin I coped this into my: /home/steam/Steam/arma3/mpmissions But when I fire up the server. I only see the vanilla missions as options. I tried renaming this to a .pbo extension, but no joy. On my windows box I subscribed to the mission via. steam workshop, and it shows up fine. Any help please? (I've had the same problem with other missions I've tried to download, including: 761149851 and 489171976.) I can't get any of them to work.
  10. Thanks. I thought it might matter for when people select the server for mods needed.
  11. Thanks Dedmen, Finally starting to get somewhere with this. :) Is there a particular filenaming scheme that should be used? For example: For workshop item 761149851 The download is 943936403083714865_legacy.bin If I rename that to: 943936403083714865_legacy.altis.pbo I get an dialog "Picture main.jpg not found" when I join the server. I get to the role assignment screen. I select a role and continue. The mission download takes a very long time then it dumps be back to the main mission select screen. Renaming the file to: 943936403083714865legacy.altis.pbo Same result. renamed again to: mphelotraining.altis.pbo Same result. Also, in all the above cases when I'm on the mission selection screen (from my windows client) the mission appears in the Altis list, but it is called whatever the filename is. Additionally it doesn't show the image or description of the mission (both are blank). To test that the problem wasn't with a broken mission, from my windows client (gaming machine) I subscribed to the mission in Steam. I then hosted a LAN server. On the create game screen I see the description, the image, etc. Also, the mission is listed under Altis as "Helicopter training MP". Lauching it, everything works fine. Any idea what I'm doing wrong on the linux server?
  12. I'm still struggling with this. All the missions I've downloaded so far from the workshop are xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx_legacy.bin I have nothing in my class missions in the server.cfg file (which is according to the documentation supposed to allow selection of all missions). Anyone else hosting workshop missions on their Linux arma3 server? Help. :)
  13. Stupid Question: When adding mods to the python script. How do I know what the correct "@mod_name" is? For example: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=561177050 From the steam workshop it is easy to find the mod id number, but the other piece seems to be elusive.
