    I work a lot and game a little. I probably mod more than I game.
  1. I could try that.. I am at work so I can not test it right now. But my problem seems to be that arma2server does not start an accessible server. The processes run but there is nothing reported to ArmA2 at all in the way of available games on the host and even with the server run by itself I am not able to see 2302 as a listening port although I am able to join so there is really no way for me to test if arma2server is listening on port 2302 other than trying to list/join the server from within ArmA2. Would using ./server with the suggested options work at all? EDIT Ok, so.. Using ./server -mod=@mod1\; Works great to call the mods. However, I tried to define my server.cfg file.. and guess what.. It hated it. Fails everytime and I get a Preprocessor failed on file server.cfg - error 7. So now I'm thinking my server.cfg is just all out of line. The reason I thought having 2 report to IP addresses defined was working is because my server.cfg is NOT being called upon at all by ./server unless I tell it to do so to Hitman, I apologize as I was incorrect. I re-wrote my server.cfg and kept it as basic as possible and I am now able to get server to function with my server.cfg being called and..... arma2server script is working fine.. I suppose I need to very slowly rewrite my server.cfg and try to find my set backs. Thanks to all who helped me in this thread. Go figure it's a pebcak issue. I should have known better. Sorry for wasting everyones time on a noobish mistake. I hope that some other poor "noob" finds this useful. Thanks everyone for all the pointers, you helped me get up and running!!!
  2. I made the modification to /home/arma2user/arma2server as you suggested but unfortunately that did not seem to make a difference at all. ${SERVER} >>${LOGFILE} 2>&1 -server -config=${CONFIG} -port=${PORT} -pid=${PIDFILE} -name=${NAME} -mod=${MOD} Perhaps I did something incorrectly but I do not think so. Just out of curiosity I rebooted my server to try and kill any defunct or dead PID files and that too turned up nothing. :( Perhaps you or someone else could post your working arma2server, server.cfg, and arma2.cfg contents for me to test on my server. As I am able to host the server using just ./server, I would very much like to be able to host a server that supports my custom content. Thank you, likuid
  3. The closing bracket is missing from the class Missions simply because I cut my 80 some odd mission list down for the sake of the reader and must have missed that I did not add the closing bracket for the thread post. Also, I have tested the multiple reportingIP's in both arma and arma2 and it allows for me to connect to the dedicated server on my lan as well as report to the gamespy master server. The multiple IP's have been commented down to only one for trouble shooting reasons but, having both on works fine in my case as I am able to see the server locally and my friends are able to find it no problem publicly. Thank you for the response, but I am afraid the problem is likely related to something else that I am entirely unaware of what could be culprit at this point. If you prefer I can edit my post and enter the content of my server.cfg in it's complete entirety but, I don't think the server.cfg is the problem as the server.cfg is read and comprehended fine by running server itself and, the way I understand the arma2server script is that aside from adding mods it simply calls upon server which in turn utilizes the server.cfg which makes me think that the server.cfg is fine. Otherwise it too would exhibit the same problem as the arma2server script. I may be wrong and, interpreting the arma2server script incorrectly. If I am please let me know. Again, thank you for the response Hitman.
  4.

  5. Hi everyone. =) I recently installed and configured an arma2 v1.05 dedicated server on a centos4.8 i386 configuration and, before I decided to post this thread I checked BIS forums, Armaholic, KellysHeros, and several misc. forums and threads compliments of Google with no luck. If this problem has already been addressed I apologize for wasting server space and the community's time. I can run the service fine by using; './server' and I am able to see and play on the server but I am unable to define my custom mods so that they will be loaded as well. 'ps -ef | grep server' shows arma2user 18924 12469 26 17:07 pts/1 00:00:06 ./server However, if I attempt to start the service using; './arma2server start' the service appears to start, a 'ps -ef | grep 2302' returns; arma2user 19075 19073 99 17:18 pts/1 00:00:03 ./server -server -config=server.cfg -port=2302 -pid=./2302.pid but the problem is that I am unable to see the server in the server list in game much less join. I have attempted several modifications to the context of arma2server and have seen no change. my output from; './arma2server check' [arma2user@arma2server arma2]$ ./arma2server check ArmA 2 directory: . OK Server executable: ./server OK Port number: 2302 Config file: server.cfg OK PID file: ./2302.pid RUN file: ./2302.run The context within arma2server; ARMA_DIR=. CONFIG=server.cfg PORT=2302 PIDFILE=${ARMA_DIR}/${PORT}.pid RUNFILE=${ARMA_DIR}/${PORT}.run LOGFILE=${ARMA_DIR}/log.${PORT}.txt SERVER=${ARMA_DIR}/server I had attempted to hard link arma2server to /etc/rc.d/init.d/arma2server and run a chkconfig but the return value was; service arma2server does not support chkconfig I have successfully chkconfig on the original arma 1.14 dedicated file so im not sure if this is a potential clue or not.. I know in the readme.txt it specifies that you can do the same as with arma armaserver using chkconfig so I thought I would mention it just in case. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have spent over 18 hours now trying to determine the cause of the arma2server script problem. I have run strace and several other logging/tracing methods to try and spot some sort of error being thrown but have not seen anything that would indicate a/the problem. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know specifically which files and/or output you require to help diagnose the issue and I will be more than happy to post the info. Thank you in advance, Likuid_the_White_Devil
