  1. Hello, I need some help with this. I want to save a players position, loadout and maybe group when a player leaves the server. As we have some problems with people crashing or having IP resets or just needing to restart, this would be really neat. I looked at onPlayerDisonnected and the EH PlayerDisconnected, but I don't really know where to save the data, and how to get the position. Any help would be appreciated! -Dj
  2. Hi! Thank you in advance for reading my post. So the problem is that players are complaining about low client FPS. And I can't find the reason. I suspect it's a problem with the network engine and desyncs but I can't find where it is exact. We are seeing a drop of about 10 FPS in clients compared to the "Yet Another ArmA Benchmark" for most clients. We have a pretty heavily scripted mission. We use ALiVE, ACE, HG Shops, Traffic from Enigma and a small number of other self written scripts. I analyzed the mission with Dedmen's ArmA 3 Script Profiler and found nothing critical. Only ACE always in Scheduler with it's scripts and a couple of while{true} runs every few minutes are in the Scheduler all the time. Although I didn't go with Profiling build for server. Don't understand how to use it on serverside. Here is the Google Drive with the mission if you want to look at it Regarding the server. We are using a VDS with Ryzen 5950x and 16gb RAM, SSD for storage. Server x64 with the latest Performance build. 1 Gbp/s for download and upload. Mods for the client: ArmA 3 Aegis ArmA 3 Atlas ACE CBA_A3 TFAR The CSAT Modification Project ALiVE And our little mod with factions and a couple of textures On the server side: ExtDB3 and our server-side database mod. In the RPT logs there were errors with the network engine, that it failed to send too large a message. I kind of fixed that in basic.cfg but I didn't have enough players to test it yet. The server FPS is averaging 40. Using two headless on a remote machine with Xeon via ACE Headless module. Here is our basic.cfg // This file has been tuned for a box running only one Arma 3 server on a // 1 GBit/s pipe with 64 slots /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // Default Options language = "English"; adapter=-1; 3D_Performance=1; Resolution_Bpp=32; Windowed=0; /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // Bandwidth Tuning // 100MB * 1024 * 1024 = 104857600 MinBandwidth = 104857600; // Do NOT set this too high or your Arma server will simulate ego-ddos // 1000MB * 1024 * 1024 = 1048576000 MaxBandwidth = 1200000000; /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // Network Tuning MaxMsgSend = 1024; MaxSizeGuaranteed = 512; MaxSizeNonguaranteed = 192; MinErrorToSendNear=0.04; MinErrorToSend=0.004; MaxCustomFileSize = 122880; All in all, I'm lost. I can't figure out what's causing the clients FPS drop. I tried everything, optimized the mission as best I could so as not to cut the content for players, changed mods from RHS to 2035, played with basic.cfg and tried another machine. Nothing I suspect the problem is still somewhere in the crooked settings of the network engine but I need help with that. Thanks!
  3. Hi together, Last weeks I learned a lot about localisations, using them etc. with the help of the Forum here. And 90% percent of my planned Mission is tested and works but on one finally point I get absolute in struggle. I wanna use at the very end of the mission following part: - cinemaborder fade in - keyframe animation makes a cameraride around the players - cinemborder fade out - mission endscreen But the Keyframe animation seems to be my personal "endboss" in this way. First of All: On SP and MP it works but all tries to execute on Dedicated was totally failures. And I think it is a Localisation Problem again. I am not sure because of missing Infos in BI Wiki if this Module is Local Arg and Local Exc but I expect. I tried to remoteexecute the BI Fnc direct, I tried to remoteexecute execVM the BI fnc in a separate Script, I tried to to start the BI fnc with a trigger and executed the Trigger by Script (Trigger were mostly used in Tutorials I watched), I tried different settings inside Timeline Modul to play with and without loop and also start paused and not paused, I tried to execute before the BI init fnc. And now I am just clueless. This is such a very cute Feature of Animation and I hope some of you have a idea for me. BI Wiki: Keyframe Animation: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/Arma_3:_Key_Frame_Animation BI Wiki: BIS_fnc_timeline_play: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/BIS_fnc_timeline_play BI Wiki: BIS_fnc_timeline_init: https://community.bistudio.com/wiki/BIS_fnc_timeline_init Code Outro (last Testbuild, changed very often: Code Timeline (not needed to outsource in annother Script I think): Thanks for your support.
  4. Hi together, I am a scripting beginner and am trying to learn from problem delivery to problem delivery. after a few days of research and a lot of trying, i've reached a point where i just can't figure it out anymore and every reading leads to more confusion and so i'm asking for your support. Scenario: a SOG CDLC Jet is connected to a Multiplayer Respawn Module. After destruction and respawn, two addactions should be attached, Nightvision and Thermal should be switched off (also with regard to other Jets of Unsung Mod etc.) and a function that defines the group membership in the Mike Force script should be executed. My two .sqf are still rudimentary at this point and I will only continue to build them once I have solved the problem of execution. It currently works in the SP / Selfhosted but not on the Dedicated Server. I have both the way of directly executing the code in the expression of the respawn module and calling it from an external .sqf via remoteEexec. That means I have: - a locality problem - it is not clear to me whether my variable from the editor is retained after respawn or whether it has to be reassigned and so I had a failure because of doubling the params for new and old vehicle Init Vehicle (not Init Respawn Module - works on Dedicated by start): First Version Expression Field Resspawn Module - Direct Code : Second Version Expression Field Resspawn Module - calling a .sqf: Content of umdrehen.sqf (not urgent but for "awareness"): Content of exit.sqf (not required but for "awareness"): Content of newf1.sqf (maybe required, belongs to variabel and calling condition): Thank you very much in advance for your thoughts, suggestions and support.
  5. Hey, I help some help to improve this: The script does: for dedicated and hosted servers, a multiplayer playable area control based on a trigger area (with Y, X, Z) dropped through Eden Editor, where, if some player leaves that area, that specific player is punished immediately and, if there is a vehicle with them, the vehicle must be destroyed too. Improvement desired: as the script is loaded by description.ext | cfgFunctions and the script checks all players alive (they are able to respawn) as long the match goes, the desire is to improve those lines, remembering my dedicated server runs, sometimes, til 30 players. Ps.: for now, the target is just human players, not considering AI units out there. Here we go: fn_PAC_init.sqf: if (!isServer) exitWith {}; private ["_playersAlive", "_isPlayableArea"]; [] spawn { while { true } do { _playersAlive = (allPlayers - (entities "HeadlessClient_F")) select {alive _x}; { // forEach _isPlayableArea = _x inArea PAC_playableAreaControl; // Eden trigger if !(_isPlayableArea) then { [_x, 1] call THY_PAC_fnc_setDamage; }; } forEach _playersAlive; sleep 5; }; }; fn_PAC_globalFunctions.sqf: THY_PAC_fnc_setDamage = { params ["_target", "_damage"]; ["You left the playable zone!"] remoteExec ["systemChat", _target]; sleep 0.1; if !(isNull objectParent _target) then // checking if the player is in vehicle { vehicle _target setDamage [_damage, false]; }; _target setDamage _damage; }; On Eden Editor: Dropped a trigger and name it as "PAC_playableAreaControl". Share your thoughts, it will be very much appreciated. thy
  6. Hey, i just enabled BattlEye on our linux dedicated server for the first time and have some questions. BattlEye seems to run properly: It gets updated, is executing filters and scripts.txt, is writing logs and the remote console works. BUT: Clients with disabled BattlEye are still able to join that server. Why is that? Do i have to add some special filter-line for kicking them? Thanks for any hint.
  7. Hey everyone, we have released a first iteration of the Linux Dedicated Server as reported in SITREP #38. It's still a little bit experimental so we would very much appreciate your feedback and experience running it. Please report any bugs to our Feedback tracker (use the fields Platform, OS and OS Version to describe you distro as best as you can) while general feedback should go directly into this thread. There are some known issues so be aware of them when you run the server: Also note that java version 7 is required to run the server (even though it's disabled in-game) so you will have to set path to 'libjvm.so' correctly for your distro. Example usage on my debian: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/lib/i386/jamvm ./arma3server -netlog -config=Arma3_Server.cfg Enjoy!
  8. Simple support system for Arty, Ammo drop, CAS, Transport, dynamic with mod support, virtual, white-listing. Works with team-switch GitHub Link Place the required modules, Place one support requester module named SupportRequester Then place virtual Support modules for each named; ArtilleryProvider, CasProvider, TransportProvider, AmmoProvider, HelicasProvider using the virtual support module Sync each virtual module back the the main SupportRequester module. You can also sync the main supportrequester back the a HQ module for audio announcments. I will include a picture to show modules. This is repeatable server side, can use all modules or just 1.
  9. Hi there I have had a Linux dedicated arma3 server running fine for a while, these last days an issue appeared from no where: I use the 1.82 version, so I can connect to it with the Linux native client, With BE enabled.

  11. I've been trying my best to get a script to work which allows a server to detect players within a specific vehicle. Here are the versions I've tested. They do not work on a dedicated server though. 1: {_x in object} count (playableUnits) == {alive _x} count (playableUnits); 2: _allPlayers = call BIS_fnc_listPlayers; {_x in object} count (_allPlayers) == {alive _x} count (_allPlayers); 3: {_x in object} count (allPlayers) == {alive _x} count (allPlayers); 4: ( {alive _x && !(_x in object)} count allPlayers ) == 0 I'm terrible at scripting but I try my best to understand. If you have a fix that is great, though I'd love to know how I messed up and how to improve for the future. :)

  13. After starting up my dedicated server, and loading into the briefing screen as admin. I select the Server tab within Game Options, set some variable, check "Overwrite Mission", select "OK". Then if I reopen the Game Options section, the variable will reset itself to the default value. I've tried toggling `filePatching` within the Start.bat file, and `allowedFilePatching` within server.cfg Current values: filePatching unchecked allowedFilePatching = 2 I've tried exporting the wanted Game Options into cba_settings.sqf within Server/@CBA_A3/userconfig and updating the mission pbo file at MissionDescription/gameSettings.hpp to contain: cba_settings_hasSettingsFile = 1; I'd prefer to set the Game Options using a custom preset when starting the server, not "hardcoding" the values within cba_settings. Also just to be clear, I tried using cba_settings just as a temporary possible solution, it may not be the correct way to do it, and I'm not looking to use that method. I'm currently running the latest git Community Antistasi which I packed into a pbo, as well as using CBA_A3 and ace, and I'm hosting with GTXGaming. I've setup this same mission with the same mods, and the same host before, I'm not sure why I'm having issues this time. Any advice or pointers are appreciated, thanks in advance!
  14. Hello everyone, and thank you for taking the time. I have returned to Arma 3 mission making and server hosting after a break, and have been really excited to get going. I know some ins and outs how to manage a server, and do some troubleshooting already, when it comes to mission making, scripts, and to find out problems with the server and the logs. However, this issue is not something that I have managed to resolve as of yet; There is some kind of desync issue with the server, sooner or later as I am hosting an operation, or another gamemode such as Escape, sooner or later at some point the server will start to desync strongly in periods .. like when AI is spawning or moving about. I have tried to run the missions without some scripts, to test if it fixes the desync but it hasn't .. so I was thinking maybe there is an issue in the mod list, somehow, or corrupted files in the server, or something to do with the server getting overloaded and too busy .. which has led me to read about Headless Clients, which is too complex for me. Current mod list during operations; Mod list during Escape (custom modded); Keep in mind we experience same desync issues, with both mod lists. Perhaps answers can be found in the log, I appreciate if anyone could take a look; This is the log from yesterday when we were playing Escape Tanoa (custom with mods).
  15. Hi guys, I've been steadily producing terrible code and making it less terrible as I go. I'm still having problems recognizing locality of certain commands, and when/who needs to execute the specific code. Thanks for your help, as I continue to produce horrible scripts! What I'm trying to do 1) Players use an addaction to start an event (working) 2) Players are transported into a plane (working) a) the plane begins to get shot down (crash) (working) b) some radio chatter (text and sound), and music plays (only working for the player that triggered the action ("player1")) c) some explosion happens and an engine fire starts (working) d) the plane is forced downward (working kind of brute force though) 3) Players encounter another explosion at low altitude (working) a) players are knocked unconscious (only working for "player1") b) random clutter is spawned based on player count (working) c) players are stripped of random items and those items are placed in some boxes (half working only player1 loses items) 3) Players awaken to a crash site (working again only player1 was unconscious) a) music switch to shorter track (working only for player1) b) static engine noise plays from the wreck (working for playe1 only) I have also noticed that for "player1" the events progress linearly through the script, but for the other players that is not necessarily the case. I was poking around and it sounds to be scheduler related, but I'm not quite understanding how to work around that. Ideally all of the events in my script would happen synchronously and in the order they are shown in the script. Any help in pointing me where to go from here is much appreciated, script and description.ext to follow. description.ext Crash.sqf
  16. Hi all, I'd like to better understand the JIP parameter used in remoteExec command. I read tons of pages (most of them are rather questions than answers) and of course several times the BIKI pages about remoteExec and JIP things. If I clearly understand, the JIP is set to FALSE by default. That means the code will not fire for a JIP as there is no "message" in queue. I guess the message is a kind of string code but there is no example or plain explanation about that. Anyway, here is my 2 cent question: I'm testing a mod on a server dedicated + client on the same PC. A script allows me modifying the loadout on pylons of a jet. This script is located on server where the aircraft is spawned. So, as setPylonLoadout is effect local , (really strange for a recent command!), I have to remoteExec this command everywhere. I forget the JIP thing, just remoteExecuting the command. OK. All is fine so far. Now, testing the mission, as client of my own dedicated server, I can see the new pylons and they are operational. BUT: If I disconnect and reconnect (the server is set to let the mission run when no player), I'm joining the ongoing mission and , by some way I can't understand, I can see the new pylons on the aircraft. On my mind, if no JIP parameter on remoteExec, the client has no info on what was remoteExecuted, so should see the standard loadout of the spawned aircraft. So, JIP or not, in what cases? Is there some exception on vehicles/objects? Isn't it a waste of net resource to JIP for nuts some parameters? but which ones? Thanks for reading.
  17. Hey Guys, So im trying to setup a dedicated server also to play on with my group. I use Ubuntu server and get the following problem when i load the mission: Even tho the mods are loaded: I made all files small letters already (removed capitals) and this is my startup line: ./arma3server -mod="mods\@cba_a3;mods\@cupterrainscore;mods\@cupterrainscwa;mods\@cupterrainsmaps;mods\@lingordingorisland;mods\@rhsafrf;mods\@rhsgref;mods\@rhssaf;mods\@rhsusaf;mods\@task_force_radio;" -port=2302 -name="FisherServer" -config="server.cfg" The folders contain the PBO files that are in the error, I tried to fix it for 5 hours already :/ Anyone have an idea where this is going wrong?
  18. Hi everyone, I'm quite noob when it comes to the server-client interaction in arma, so please bear with me on this one. So I was testing a mission with my friend, with him being the server. I noticed that when my position was close enough to him, nothing seemed out of the ordinary, but when we're sufficiently far apart, like at least several kilometers, enemy AIs stopped responding to my gunshots (not going to alert) and will not try to engage, until I'm close enough to them (like 200m+ or so, even when they have weapons with long-ranged scope), while my friend, being the server, did not notice any problem at all (he still got sniped from 600m away). We tried some other simple scenarios and this kept happening so I concluded that it must have been arma's client-server thing. I've tried googling for the reference information about this but so far no luck, though pretty sure I'm just missing the right keyword, so can anyone please refer me to the relevant arma wiki page or any info page about this? Another question is, if this is indeed an issue with arma client-server interaction, would using dedicated server address this? Thank you in advance!
  19. Hi to all! For my server, it was necessary to perform a whitelist for players who connect to the server. To do this, I created a separate mod that works almost perfectly, but the problem is that checking for all given parameters occurs only after a briefing. How to run a script in an addon loop for example when starting the server itself or when connecting the player to the server (not in the game - possibly in the lobby or simply connecting the mission selection screen). Here is my example implementation: config.cpp In config, we create a Security class and set the preInit parameter (I understand that it executes before loading the mission, and I need it when connecting to the server) fn_init.sqf And it works as follows: the server has a config containing an array of player data (name, guid, ban status) and an access password (required in the server configuration using the command serverCommandPassword = "010101"; specify the same password which is also in the "Security \ functions \ config.ccp"). Then after the start of the game (after the briefing) the script makes a check: 1) The presence of GUID in whiteList, if not - kick, if so then step two 2) Checking player on banned: if paremetr false - then next step if parametr true - so does the kick. 3) Checking the registered name if it does not match what is indicated in the whiteList - kick 4) If the player passes all three checks, he successfully connected the game and receives a notification in the chat "Accepted". And now my main question to the specialists (if they are still here is): How to make this script work not when the mission starts, but when the server starts? Any variations are accepted (When connecting the player, when starting in the lobby (but not further than the lobby), it can be a cycle or something). Maybe something smarter than this nonsense.
  20. Hello, In my clan we're trying to establish a dedicated server like we did in the past and it doesn't seem to work. We tried establishing the server using two different machines, several different ports, and some other settings - the system is showing that the server is running but not showing up on the multiplayer servers browser. What could be the problem?
  21. Here's the server log: https://pastebin.com/hbyiXFJK I use LGSM, the machine has 96gb ram, 3ghz 8core 16 thread dual cpu (intel). Ubuntu 18. I was getting another error before this one when it kicked me: 12:42:28 BattlEye Server: Connected to BE Master 12:42:33 BEServer: cannot find channel #481584431, users.card=0 12:42:35 BEServer: cannot find channel #481584431, users.card=0 12:42:40 BEServer: cannot find channel #481584431, users.card=0 12:42:43 BEServer::finishDestroyPlayer(481584431): users.get failed I did a reinstall, changed some elements of the mission file and now I don't get that error, but I still get kicked and the console is flooded with: 5:04:30 File A3\Functions_F_Warlords\Warlords\fn_WLSectorPopulate.sqf [BIS_fnc_WLSectorPopulate]..., line 118 5:04:30 Error in expression <ts _newGrp < 3} do { _newUnit = _newGrp createUnit [_unitArr # floor random _uni> 5:04:30 Error position: <createUnit [_unitArr # floor random _uni> 5:04:30 Error Type Any, expected String The server seems to be up and running, it shows on the server list, just when I connect I get sent back to the server list with no pop up message.
  22. Greetings to all. I usually use this script to spawn (on trigger position) hunters to hunt the players (on foot) in my multiplayer mission (dedi) and its works perfect. But updating the mission and adding vehicles for the players I realized that when a player is inside a vehicle and activates the trigger and then gets off the vehicle and continues on foot, the hunters reach the position of the abandoned vehicle and stop there, do not continue chasing the player on foot. Any help or advice is welcome. Thank You! Trigger size: 390 x 390 Activation: Any Player ActType: Present Server Only: yes Cond: this OnAct: null = [thistrigger,thislist] execvm "4hunters.sqf"; 4hunters.sqf _PosTrigger = _this select 0; _objetives = _this select 1; _objetive = _objetives select 0; if (isserver) then { private ["_hunters", "_leaderhunters"]; _CountEnemies = {alive _x && side _x == independent} count allUnits; //Spawn hunters if less than 100 enemies on the map if (_CountEnemies < 100) then { _SpawnPos = position _PosTrigger ; _hunters = createGroup independent; _hunters = [_SpawnPos, independent, ["I_C_Soldier_Para_2_F","I_C_Soldier_Para_1_F","I_C_Soldier_Para_2_F","I_C_Soldier_Para_1_F"],[],[],[],[],[],260] call BIS_fnc_SpawnGroup; //Move to player position _leaderhunters = leader _hunters; _leaderhunters move (position _objetive); _hunters setCombatMode "RED"; _hunters setBehaviour "AWARE"; _hunters allowFleeing 0; 0 = [_hunters,_objetive] spawn { while {true} do { params ["_hunters","_objetive"]; sleep 3; //If the player who activates the trigger moves more than 400 meters away, the hunters are deleted if ((_objetive distance (leader _hunters)) > 400) exitWith { {deleteVehicle _x} forEach units _hunters; }; }; }; //When the hunters reach the position where the trigger is activated (and the player is not there) wait 3 sec and update the player's new position. while {true} do { // _leaderhunters = leader _hunters; if ((unitReady _leaderhunters) && {(alive _leaderhunters)}) then { sleep 3; if (({ alive _x} count (units _hunters)) != 0) then { _leaderhunters = leader _hunters; _leaderhunters move (position _objetive); _hunters setCombatMode "RED"; _hunters setBehaviour "AWARE"; _hunters allowFleeing 0;};};}; }; };
  23. My friend and I have been working on getting a server to work with us with mods for 9 hours and its starting to get a bit frustrating. We feel like there is nothing for us to do. So basically one of the many issues we are having is that in the CONFIG_server.cfg file that I have, it does not appear to be registering the name of the server i have input, the server password or the admin password and when i enable them. These lead to other issues, such as not being able to access the Game Add On tab for the server so as to enable the mods once in game. If someone would let me know as to what I should be doing or what I have done wrong that would be great. Edit: This might be the potential issue because I was having the same problem with my .bat file The file is named CONFIG_server.cfg.txt so it isn't registering the .cfg as the file type??? it still says it's a .txt file even after I clarified while saving to not restrict it to only .txt This sounds like it might be the issue and I would be super happy if anyone could shed light on how to get it to stop making it .cfg.txt and just .cfg Edit of Edit: So i fixed the file type, server still doesn't recognize the name of server, admin password and normal password, will keep trying!!! Config File: // // server.cfg // // comments are written with "//" in front of them. // NOTE: More parameters and details are available at http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/server.cfg // STEAM PORTS (not needed anymore, it's +1 +2 to gameport) // steamPort = 8766; // default 8766, needs to be unique if multiple servers are on the same box // steamQueryPort = 27016; // default 27016, needs to be unique if multiple servers are on the same box // GENERAL SETTINGS hostname = "Server303"; // Name of the server displayed in the public server list //password = "serverpw"; // Password required to join the server (remove // at start of line to enable) passwordAdmin = "adminpw"; // Password to login as admin.

  24. I have a decent understanding of locality. And I've read the Biki pages on BIS_fnc_MP and remoteExec. I understand that remoteExec is the newer, preferred approach, but that the other still works too. But I have not been able to wrap my head around the syntax/usage of either of these. So I'm asking for someone who really does understand them to expand on what the Biki has and explain the usage -not just syntax, but how to use it in different situations. A variety of examples (and why it's done the way it's done in each example, and the effects of the variations) would be awesome. Anyone able to do this? It'd be a real benefit to all of us who make multiplayer missions!
  25. Hey guys, as i bought the Creator DLC, i first edited the new Wefelingen map in the EDEN Editor for a little nice base for my ZEUS missions. When i had it finished, i uploaded it to my Nitrado Server via FileZilla. As i joined in the lobby, the lobby started "flashing" with errors in the bottom left corner. I already put the "-mod:gm" in the modification field. And i tried it again with no assets or other buildings. I simply have the spawn and the roles on the map. I tried it with the winter map and the normal map. As i cant edit the files i dont know how to fix it. The only mods i have loaded are: - Achilles - CBA_A3 I hope you can help me ­čÖé
