  1. I have already posted about this in the other BE thread, but to ensure everyone (especially server admins) reads this, I am creating a new thread. I have repeatedly heard of people complaining about BE randomly kicking people for "Client not responding" and therefore I think it is required to clarify things here. First of all, "random" is not true. Here is a list of events that cause this kick: - the ArmA client crashes (many people frequently have this problem, just read the forums) - the player's connection breaks up completely -> this has been seen as mass kicks in certain cases where the server itself timed out and became completely unreachable -> both of these cases often (not always! - depending on internal timing) result in a "Player is losing connection" message being displayed prior to the BE kick - on very few servers, some people are immediately kicked after joining because the ArmA server - for some reason - does not deliver the BE packets to the client that the BE Server sends -> I have investigated this with one person and when joining the same server at the same time myself, I never had this problem; also, the person did not have this problem on every join - when he stayed, it worked forever -> I still couldn't find out what the reason is for this, but it is definitely caused by the ArmA netcode (maybe due to some serverside network/connection settings) To further clarify the situation, I should add that those kicks do not happen because of some temporary lag/desync - also, like the VOIP packets, the BE packets are delivered even if the whole game is frozen due to lag. Technically, the BE Server constantly tries to re-contact the clients for about 30 seconds in case of packet loss and only if there was not a single response by then, it kicks the specific player. If there are still things unclear about this subject, please post your questions here. Thanks.
  2. This is unrelated to the RCon change. BE's netcode changed, i.e. BE packets are now sent/received via the game's network protocol. This might cause problems for BE's ping calculation if the packet exchange is not fast enough (due to other traffic, etc.). As a result, unfortunately BE might no longer be able to provide such a feature in the future.
  3. Before people start complaining, I want to quickly explain why I decided to take this step. Without the requirement for administrator privileges prior to this update it was easily possible to hide cheats/hacks by simply running them under a different user account or as administrator. Therefore it is necessary to give BattlEye full access, otherwise it can be prevented from functioning correctly by anyone. So this is an important step that I postponed as long as I could. Keep in mind that the statements in the BE EULA are unaffected by this. Your privacy still is and will always be protected. On a side note, to permanently run the game as administrator on systems with UAC enabled, so that you don't have to right-click on the shortcut/executable each time, simply right-click on it and choose Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab, check the "Run this program as an administrator" option and click OK to apply your changes. Steam users should do the same with their Steam shortcut/executable.
  4. You can now download a new beserver.so with this dependency removed here: http://www.battleye.com/downloads/arma3/beserver.so.
  5. The 0-bytes overwrite is caused by a bug in the Arma 3 server following "BattlEye initialization failed". The devs are aware of it. The problem here is missing dependencies. If you check your GLIBC version using "ldd --version" it will probably show 2.13. The new beserver.so needs at least 2.15. Please upgrade GLIBC on your server by following instructions such as these: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10863613/how-to-upgrade-glibc-from-version-2-13-to-2-15-on-debian.
  6. Could you guys please make sure you use the latest version of TrackIR? If so please send the blocked file to support@battleye.com, thank you!
  7. Could you confirm that this is fixed now?
  8. No file updates. Could you confirm that the issue is fixed now?
  9. This issue should be fixed now, please confirm. I'm sorry for any inconvenience caused.
  10. Just ignore such messages if you don't notice any issues with the game.
  11. Yes, this boot option does the same and hence you can't use it anymore.
  12. Well, maybe your claims would be more believable if you didn't use the same nickname on a hacking forum. ;)
  13. Please try to disable test-signing mode again and reboot your system: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff553484%28v=vs.85%29.aspx.
  14. I'm sincerely sorry for that, but this is one of the measures taken to make the game more resistant against hacks, even if a handful of users are negatively affected by it. Using test-signing mode is never a good solution anyway (in terms of security as well). Maybe you can find a signed version of this particular driver or ask its creator to sign it?
  15. The problem with Windows 10 should be fixed now. Please restart Steam to force the update.
  16. It will be fixed if you do it correctly, unless you are using a 64-bit OS.
  17. For those using a 32-bit OS, please delete the BE Service folder ("C:\Program Files\Common Files\BattlEye") and then manually update your BEService.exe from here: http://www.battleye.com/download.html. This should resolve your issue. A fix for Windows 10 will follow later.
  18. Something seems to be seriously wrong with your system as the BE Launcher fails to run an .exe. In this case I can only suggest a complete reinstallation of Windows, I'm sorry.
  19. Sorry, the above only possibly helps if your game doesn't launch. Could you follow the steps listed in the Steam thread again and post afterwards? It seems nothing was logged for you yesterday.
  20. Could you check if you have a Windows update with the name "KB3004394" installed on your system (check in control panel)? If so please try to uninstall it. Others reported this as a solution before.
  21. Do you use a legitimate version of Windows?
  22. Please do the following so I can see what's wrong for you: http://steamcommunity.com/app/33930/discussions/0/617328415066127195/.
