  1. Hello, I have recently setup a dedicated server on Windows. It was working fine. Yesterday, I ran the update command, and some files were downloaded. I run the server and it still shows up as version 1.60. Is the dedicated server not available yet for 1.62? If it is, does anyone have any ideas why I am not updating to it? Cheers! EDIT: FIXED Found the problem. I had an install on a different drive that the SteamCMD batch file was point at. It was getting updated, not the current one I was using. All fixed now. If mods want to delete, this post that's cool.
  2. Got it. That is probably the issue. To correct then would you suggest to set the download to go to the 'D:\Games\Arma3\A3Master' instead of D:\A3Server? Thanks again!!
  3. Thanks terox, I have done those things before. I found them in the troubleshooting thread. I ran update again and got this message: CWorkThreadPool::~CWorkThreadPool: work complete queue not empty, 1 items discarded. CWorkThreadPool::~CWorkThreadPool: work processing queue not empty: 25 items discarded. . Your ArmA 3 server is now up to date key "ENTER" to exit Press any key to continue . . . Here is my config file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9167778/CONFIG_server.cfg Cheers! EDIT: For completeness, here is my update cmd script (passwords blanked): -------- @echo off @rem http://media.steampowered.com/installer/steamcmd.zip SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION :: DEFINE the following variables where applicable to your install SET STEAMLOGIN=xxx xxxx SET A3serverBRANCH=233780 -beta :: For stable use 233780 -beta :: For Dev use 233780 -beta development :: Note, the missing qotation marks, these need to be wrapped around the entire "+app_data......" :: There is no DEV branch data yet for Arma 3 Dedicated Server package !!!

  4. Thanks for the reply. I get the idea of a dedicated server. For some reason that process ends right then. I see a splash screen for a bit, can see the process running, and memory getting allocated, then it just stops. Process ends, and memory gets freed up. This is the arma3server process. No console window is ever opened though... It displays (in the Arma Splash screen), 'loading core configs' 'loading add-ons', 'initializing addons', then 'loading profile' right after that it stops. If there are any of my other config files that would help to troubleshoot some more, please let me know. Cheers!
  5. Wondering if I could get some help. I have used the tutorials to try to setup a dedicated server on a Windows 7 PC. It downloaded the game successfully using steamcmd. I am just trying to run it clean with no mods at this point. Here is my command line: D:\a3server\arma3server.exe "-profiles=d:\Games\Arma3\A3Master" -port=2302 -config=CONFIG_server.cfg -world=empty -mod= When I start the server, the splash screen shows for a bit and then just stops. Here is my rpt file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/9167778/arma3server_2016-06-30_00-14-22.rpt I would appreciate any suggestions to get this up and running. If there is a more appropriate place to request help, please let me know. Cheers!
  6. Placebo, you might want to give Dwarden a nudge to update the official Steam FAQ with this info. Having beta patches not supported (until now) was a deciding factor in many (including myself) not buying off of Steam. Cheers!
  7. I use the following code in init.sqf for the ACM module: waitUntil {!isNil {BIS_ACM getVariable "initDone"}}; waitUntil {BIS_ACM getVariable "initDone"};
  8. I don't have that registry entry. I am running TrackIR5 beta, and Win 7 64bit RC if that matters. I had TrackIR 4 installed, then installed 5, and then uninstalled 4. I wonder if that process removed that reg entry. What is the value of that entry, just the path to the .exe? If so, is it just a string value. I will try to manually create it to see if that works. Cheers!
  9. Do you have to do anything special to get it to auto start trackir? That checkbox is greyed out for me. Otherwise, working nicely!
  10. Rainbow, Did that work for you? Also, how is High Command running on a dedi server? Any problems? Cheers!
  11. Just an FYI for Canadians looking for a copy. I ordered mine from NWS Online (mentioned earlier in this thread), and received it in 10 days and there was no additional duty/customs charges upon delivery. Cheers!

  13. Read through the Steam FAQ thread, yes it is 100% currently. Although, I would expect this will be fixed in the future. The reason it worked for Arma1 is because copy protection was removed in patch 1.08, so beta patches after that on Steam were cool.
  14. I was ready to buy off Steam, (actually I did, preorder). I cancelled before release due to the statement the currently Steam doesn't support beta patches, which was a deal breaker for me. I am sure they will figure this out, but for now, say if a beta patch was released tomorrow, the Steam version wouldn't support it. Hence I ordered from NWS Online. my .02
  15. icfhoop, I ordered from NWS (I am in Canada), and I ordered on the 25th, and got my shipping notification on the 30th. I had some emails back and forth with Christopher there who was extremely helpful and said there would be a delay to ship it due to waiting on supply from 505 games. He said he should have stock on the Monday, and Tuesday at 6:00AM, I got a shipping notification. If you are curious, just send them an email and ask them if they have stock, and when they are expecting stock. I expect to get my copy today or tomorrow, I will post when I receive it to give you guys an idea on actual shipping time to Canada from them. Cheers!!
