  1. Tophes Arma Dedicated Server Tool (TADST) v3.1.0 by Tophe of Östgöta Ops [oops] >>>DOWNLOAD FROM ARMAHOLIC<<< Link if Armaholic is overloaded: HERE =============================================== 1 MINUTE HOW-TO QUICK GUIDE TADST v3.1.0 The Armed Assault series allows an amazing array of settings to freely customize dedicated servers. This means you will have to edit quite a few config files to get it running the way you like. TADST is a tool that will greatly simplify this. All you need to do is to choose the settings you like. Then the application will create all necessary files according to your settings and start the server with the appropriate arguments. All necessary files will be created in a folder called 'TADST'. You can save different profiles to easily switch between server setups. In the folder TADST a new folder for each profile will be created. This folder contains all files associated to the profile. INSTALLATION ============= Copy the file 'TADST.exe' to your Arma game folder. * Note that it's important that the file is in the game root folder i.e. C:\Games\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3 * If you are upgrading from an earlier version of TADST you should delete your old TADST folder so the program can create new settings files. You also need to have .NET installed. QUICK START ============= Set up your firewall. To run a dedicated server you must make sure you have set port forwarding correctly in your firewall/router. Normally you need the ports 2302-2305 to be open. Click the port info button to get info on your selected ports. Set Server Name and Server File TADST is set to start the server with default settings so the only two things you need to set to get a server up and running is Server Name and Server File. If you double click the text fields, TADST will try and set appropriate values. FUTURE PLANS ============= Options for allowedFileExtensions, allowedPreprocessFileExtensions, allowedHTMLLoadExtensions, allowedHTMLLoadURIs Options to launch headless clients Steam server update thingy Individual difficulty settings on missions System for setting Mission Parameters. Start as service. Process monitoring, restart server on crash. Remote server/client protocol (probably wont't happen, but hey) SUPPORT TADST ================== I'm doing this for fun and for love to the community, but if you like TADST you can support me by donating some coffee-money. You can also follow my music project Meadows on facebook. That would make me equally happy! THANKS ============= To Bohemia for keeping it real To Australian Tactical Combat League, Rune "TheFlyingCorpse" Darrud, Dave, Bill, Krijn and Rafael for generous donations To Baconeo and James Kingsley for code contribution To The Arma community for everything Östgöta Ops for testing, playing and supporting VERSION HISTORY ================ v3.1.0 - 2017.09.23 (Thanks to Bradon Hall) Fixed: Include 64 bit server exe in file list Fixed: Open RPT for 64 bit server Improved: Add empty allowedVoteCmds when voting disabled v3.0.0 - 2016.06.12 New: Settings for Max Ping, Max Desync, Max Packet Loss, Max Disconnect timeout and Kick Clients On Slow Network.

  2. INTRO After some time using and getting annoyed with the repetitiveness of SteamCMD, I looked around for a tool to automate at least some of process of installing an Arma 3 server and managing workshop mods. Having looked through a few options, none of which matched what i was looking for I decided it would be easier to build it myself. F.A.S.T. is the result of that, this is the first iteration and I will continue to expand and update it as and when needed. Thanks go out to Optix for his Remote Arma Server tool that gave me some ideas for my tool. Also, a massive thank you to Kju and Friznit for testing and bug reporting for me. PREREQUISITES Steam account with valid copy of Arma 3. Basic understanding of Arma 3 dedicated servers. DOWNLOADS AND INSTALL Download the zip file from below, unzip the contents to a folder or your choice and run the tool. Github Releases SCREENSHOTS FEATURES Automated install and update of SteamCMD. Works with existing SteamCMD and Arma 3 server installs. Steam Guard support. Encrypts and remembers steam password. Automated install and update of Arma 3 Server Main Branch. Automated install and update of Arma 3 Server Dev Branch (see below for warning). Adding, downloading and updating steam workshop mods. Adding, downloading and updating of Private/ Friends only steam workshop mods. Manually update all or individual mods. Mass import of mods using Arma 3 launcher pre-set file.

Detect previously installed/ existing Workshop mods. New modern UI/ UX. Automatic updating of the tool. Remove keys on delete mod. KNOWN ISSUES About and Help menu options are none functional. Time to check for updates increases with number of mods - this may be a steam API limitation and is unlikely to be fixed. ISSUES AND FEEDBACK I'll monitor this thread as best as i can but I will use this GitHub Repo for bugs, issues and feature suggestions. Any feedback is also welcome in this thread. GitHub Issues DEV BRANCH WARNING Due to the available server builds on steam, to install a dev branch server you must install the main Arma 3 application dev branch then launch using the included server binaries. Due to the way SteamCMD works this means that any mods that the account used to install the server is subscribed to will also be downloaded and updated when using Dev Branch. Currently these mods are mot detected/ added to F.A.S.T. but this will be added in future. DOCUMENTATION Is currently minimal but will be updated, in the meantime here are is some basic info that can also be found in the "Help" section on the tool.
  3. Looking for a good survival server Hello all, I'm looking for a good modded Arma 3 server to play on. I've played the game before but am now getting back into it. Prefered features are: 1. Not too much loot, but not too scarce either. Lower tier loot can be somewhat common with better loot being very hard to find. 2. Roving AI that hunt you; infantry at the minimum, ground vehicles are better, boat and aircraft patrols would be great! 3. Prefer militarized, with only civilian gear, weapons, and equipment available at traders; must search and scavenge for the good stuff. Or, perhaps, military being very expensive and require high respect/xp/whatever to purchase. 4. PvPvE, but if a PvE only server is good enough I'll consider it. Maybe even have PvP at night only? 5. AI survivable, but able to take you out in numbers if you're not careful. 6. Zombies: take 'em or leave 'em, I'm not particular, as long as there are enough AI to keep me on my toes. 7. A friendly and active player base who are down for some RP rather than shoot on sight all the time. 8. Missions, with a variety of difficulty levels for different skilled players. 9. Natural disasters, such as earthquakes, rad storms, etc. 10. And of course, the most basic survival aspects: food, water, thirst, fatigue, and body temps. 11. Base building! 12. Day/night cycle with decent length nights. 13. Sneaking/stealth; ability to avoid zombies and AI if you stay low and slow. 14. Not picky about any particular map, just needs to be a big one. 15. ... Probably more stuff, but that's just off the top of my head. If you think I might like your server, please let me know. Even if it doesn't have everything on my wish list, if it's fun enough otherwise, I might just give it a go. :)
  4. Server Transfer System v1.0.3 The Server Transfer System (STS for short) is an addon that allows for the transferring of players from one server to another. STS is based off the code KillZone_Kid shared with his final post here. Expanding on KillZone_Kid's work, STS hides the transfer behind an overlay, making a nearly-flawless transition from one server to another. The transfer overlay will eventually allow customization, but currently is simply a black screen with "Please Wait" up top. This addon does not handle the saving, storing, nor transferring of character data. That will need to be handled by the end user. To transfer a client, the server must remoteExec STS_fnc_Transfer. Here is an example: //TIMEOUT = Transfer timeout (time till it gives up on joining the server in seconds) //AUTOJOIN = Automatically load into servers (mission must have joinUnassigned = false; in description.ext) ["IP","PORT",TIMEOUT,"PASSWORD",AUTOJOIN] remoteExec ["STS_fnc_Transfer",-2]; LICENSING + BI Monetization Rights DOWNLOAD AVAILABLE ON STEAM WORKSHOP CHANGE LOG v1.0.3 Now packed and signed with pboProject. Added: Overlay between transfers Bug: You can NOT transfer to the same server you are connected to. Bug: Transfering to a server without -autoinit will lock the game up. v1.0.2 Tweaked: Transfer script broken down into stages Added: Transfer completed script Added: Transfer failed script Fixed: Bug causing players to autoload into all future servers after Transfer is used. Bug: You can NOT transfer to the same server you are connected to. v1.0.1 Added: Autojoin Parameter ( Automatically loads the player into the server ) ( Server Must Have joinUnassigned = false; in description.ext ) Added: CfgSTS Config for managing code that needs to run on display startup ( This is safe to use with other mods ) v1.0.0 - Original Publish
  5. Hey guys! I have a mission where players can choose to be blufor, opfor and independent. Each leader of a faction has an endtrigger synced to them that should end the mission when the unit enters it. I have the triggers and debriefing working fine in singleplayer, but in multiplayer I am not able to force the end on the clients even though I use [endMission, "END1" ] call BIS_fnc_MP; in the respective trigger for each side. What am I doing wrong? I found a lot of threads where people say to execute the functions on the clients, but I just can't seem to grasp how to do this. Cheers!
  6. My community is struggling to get all of our mods (approximately 10-15 total) to load correctly for the signature verification feature. When tested individually each mod is properly signed and working. When attempting to load all or random assortments of these mods however, one or more mods are no longer verifiable. We've tried numerous combinations of these mods but have been unsuccessful in pinpointing the cause of this issue. So my question is this: Are there any known limitations of verify signatures—such as filesize, file number, and so forth? If not a limitation, what sort of conflicts might be at play? Can anyone shed light on this strange problem or suggest further troubleshooting steps? Thanks in advance!
  7. Hey guys, a few friends and me are currently trying to get a modded Arma 3 server running. But for some reason we got a problem with loading the map. These are the mods we are using: CBA_A3, Altis Armed Forces (2017), CUP Terrains - Core, CUP Terrains - Maps, CUP Units, CUP Vehicles, CUP Weapons, RHSAFRF, RHSGREF, RHSSAF, RHSUSAF This is the parameter order: ./arma3server -config=server.cfg -mod=CBA_A3 -mod=CUP_Terrains_Core -mod=CUP_Units -mod=CUP_Vehicles -mod=CUP_Weapons -mod=CUP_Terrains_Maps -mod=rhsafrf -mod=rhsgref -mod=rhssaf -mod=rhsusaf Due to the server running on linux it might be a little different on windows, but this is the order we are currently using. You can connect to the server without any problems, you choose your role and press 'confirm'. After a short loadingscren you return to the roleassingment and get the error: "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgWorlds.sara_dbe1'." in chat. Even after searching half the web, we couldn't find a solution that works for us. Probably because our server is running on linux, not sure. But if anyone could help, that would be great. greetings, Presa

  9. Hello everyone! Our unit is a semi realistic milsim unit based on the real United States 4th Marines Regiment. We perform a range of different operations from stealth insersions to military patrols allowing our members to experience more than one type of warfare, something most units don't achieve. We are currently in the process of filling the third squad in our platoon which is in need of leadership/specialization positions. Roles Available Within our unit there are a range of different role our members can undertake. We will help anyone of our members to achieve their goals of what ever role they want. Below is a list of the current roles available: -Squad/Team Leaders -Pointman -Radio Telecommunication Officers -Demolitions Specialists -Combat Medics -Auto Rifleman -Marksman How do you apply? Applying is very simple all you have to do is fill out the application on our website and then one of our recruiters will get back to you with further instructions (contact info at the bottom). What training is required? We believe the best way to learn is through doing it for real which is why we only have one short basic combat training that everyone will need to complete to be able to reach the rank Private Second Class. To go above the rank of Private Second Class you will need to complete the Advanced Infantry Training which allows you to achieve any of the ranks within the unit. To gain a specialized role you may be required to complete a specialization training which with teach the basics of the role you will fill. Current specialization trainings are: -Leadership -Combat Medic -Radio Telecommunication When do we Operate? We perform Main Operations on Saturdays at 7pm GMT which are controlled by professional gamemasters which place the players first, ensuring that everyone has fun. Unit Training occurs on Saturdays at 5pm GMT, however if the players are on then it will be whenever requested. Mini-Operations occur throughout the week all of which are dependent on the amount of players on the server and whether people want a mission, however there will be at least 2 mini-operations a week. If you are interested out links are below Our Website http://4thmarinesregiment.enjin.com Teamspeak IP: Steamgroup: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/4thMarinesRegiment#
  10. Hello guys. So my friends and I are creating a surreal milsim server together with the least knowledge of coding and scripting. Our will is pretty far serious and realistic. We have a different way of playing our military simulation. So here I am to ask you some crucial questions that matters for our server's developpement. I rent a server with 40 slots on HostHavoc. I barely know how to code so I count on the host panel to take care of most of my mods. What I want is a Realistic Milsim with grades, promotions, multiples units such as recon, infantry and mecanics, airborn and sea. What do you suggest ? I have already RHS mods, CBA and Task force radio installed, and currently have a issue with it. The command line doesn't read it. So my questions are, how can I configure properly my server ? Do I really need a scripter to handle the scripts and missions ? If yes, I hire you monthly. How can I make my mods to work and appear in the server ? If anyone can help me with that stuff I'll be very happy and grateful to you. Reply or send me a PM and we could talk on Discord. I really need someone. Thank you very much.
  11. Hello. Fairly new to Arma. Looking for a serious server, like a Milsim server or group to join. Would like to learn the game more and get involved. (Uk timezone.) Cheers Tom
  12. Armaverse Nordic is hosting a 24/7 server for Iron Front with team vs team missions The missions are built on Arma 3's Sector Control game mode and use HoverGuy's Simple Shops framework (GitHub, BIS forum thread) to provide players the freedom of choice regarding gear, vehicles etc. while still at the same time somewhat restricting the access to top-tier assets. Using Arma 3's Sector Control game mode two different mission types have been created: Close Quarters Combat [CQC] that puts emphasis on infantry and concentrates on close-range fighting Combined Arms [CA] which include the wide variety of assets that are available in Iron Front. Also missions created for this type offer vast battlefields for the troops to manoeuver in and around the objectives. Note about the overall gameplay: the server is forcing Veteran difficulty, so 3rd person mode will not be available. Also there are no markers for the players on the map so at times you might need to resort to using a compass or even navigate by the stars(!) Available missions include action for all the three main factions of Iron Front: the German Army, the Soviet Army and the United States Army. The game server is provided with the possibility to use Task Force Arrowhead Radio v.0.9.12 (Get it from http://radio.task-force.ru/en/) To join the TFAR enabled TeamSpeak server head over to ts3server://xx.xxx.xxx.xxx/?port=xxxx or use direct IP (xx.xxx.xxx.xxx) to connect from the TeamSpeak.

  13. Good day all, We are looking for someone that has a bit of experience in setting up a Dedicated Server Hosted by a 3rd party. We have a little group starting to grow and we managed to host a server, but currently we are unable to let it load the maps/mods that we want it to. So we are looking for people that have experience with this (especially the command lines) as this seems the bit where we are having the issues with. If you are looking to join a group(currently not an official unit yet) and you bring some additional skills as described above to the table, then please contact me on this mail: wernerross1993@gmail.com Have a great day and I hope to see you soon! Werner,
  14. Hello all, I'm curious as to grab a player / unit's object from the server. I want to refrain from doing: { if(_x == player) then { //etc }; } forEach allPlayers; any good solutions to this?
  15. When I join a server (1944 KOTH mod) I am allowed to select a team, start joining until I hear people talking in side chat, then it kicks me. I have an image of the error screen. When I look up the error, I can't find anything on it. I've tried to create a new profile and tried to edit my profile a little. This is a fresh install after installing a new SSD. It was fine when it was on a mechanical drive before. I don't have any of my old settings/profiles on the new installation. My whole computer was wiped when I installed the SSD, so this is a "fresh" copy of Arma, with some steam mods that carried over my account. I hope this was enough information, but I cannot find ANYTHING on this error anyways, so how could you? EDIT -- I was able to join an Altis Life server. hmm. It may be me. Still cryptic error message.
  16. I just bought a server, and after the setup and launching Arma 3 Server all my friends could join it, but it haven't even showed up in the server list for me. I pinged the server from my PC and I had no package loss, but when i pinged my PC from the server it had 100% package loss. This issue seems like to occur only with me, would be glad if anyone here had it before and know how to solve. Thanks!
  17. seelenlos Zeus This mod allows the whitelisted players to use Zeus in every mission. You just need to press the Zeus Button (Default: Z). We use the mod to play missions in different ways, "unstuck" broken mission flows or add mod weapons to vanilla missions. That means, you get the ability to play a mission again with different loadouts, vehicles and enemies without the effort to change it with scripts or the editor (unpacking, changing, testing, packing, uploading). The use of the ARES-mod is strongly recommended. Features: - server side only mod - only the whitelisted players can use it - does not interfere with any existing Zeus in the mission - add objects to Zeus (optional) - share created objects between mod Zeus (optional) Add Objects to Zeus In the slz_settings.sqf, you can define a array of objects which will be added to zeus. More infos in the slz_settings.sqf. Add all addons to zeus In the slz_settings.sqf, you can set slz_addAllAddons to true (default) to activate all available addons. Changelog v.1.7 CHANGES - slz_addAllAddons variable added - if it's set to true (default) all available addons will be added to the mod curators v.1.6 CHANGES - slz_sharedObjects variable added - if it's set to true all objects which are created by slz curators are editable for every slz curator FIXED - possible fix for exile server v.1.5 CHANGES - neutral Zeus removed - SLZ_editPlayerUnits variable removed FIXED - zeus remotecontrol caused diconnect from curator module - some other bugs v.1.4.1 FIXED -userconfig path capitalization changed to lowercase (issue with case sensitve file system) v.1.4 REWORKED CODE - complete rewrite CHANGES - no admin zeus anymore (i think there is no need anymore) - SLZ_whitelist variable added - in the userconfig there is a array where you can add uid's (it is the number in the steam-profile link) - if your uid is in this array you have zeus abilities - SLZ_neutralZeus variable removed - if you press zeus key you get the control of the virtualCurator which is always neutral - your playerunit become hidden and invulnerable - SLZ_editPlayerUnits variable added - all playerunits can be edited if these players are in curatormode - if it is set to false these units can also add to the curator editable object list by other scripts or mods like ares KNOWN ISSUES - Don't mix up to many zeus login methods (native use, too) - if you use #adminLogged Game Master Modules and virtualCurator entities or player controled curators don't login as admin if you are in a other curator slot - the native curator itself has a bug: if you are in the mission, go back to loginscreen and join again, you have to die before you can use the curator again (expect the #adminLogged method) v.1.3 FIXED - bug in the per frame eventHandler v.1.2 REWORKED CODE - remove while do loops ---> replaced with a per frame eventHandler FIXED - known issues from 1.1 v.1.1 ADDED - neutral zeus - this option change the playerside if you enter the zeus to logic because only a neutral zeus can set all attributes: for example the sector control module - copy the userconfig folder to your arma 3 folder and change the value in the SLZ_settings.sqf to true. (default = false) FIXED - if the admin logout the other players can't be the zeus. KNOWN ISSUES - if you are logged in as admin and you go into lobby and return to the game you have to logout and login to use the zeus again v.1.0 - first release Credits: Fry & Chucky from seelenlos-Team http://arma.seelenlos.eu License: GPLv3 Known Issues: - none Download Links: - Steam Workshop - Dropbox - Armaholic (outdated) Recommended Mods: Ares: - Steam Workshop - BI Forum - Armaholic
  18. hi all guys ! i just wish to inform the whole community that after many months of test, i can finally declare the official opening of two servers: a TDM server with a gameplay inspired to insurgency, still way more realistic, but fast paced, round based, with arsenal ecc. a DOMINATION server, with a dynamic domination mission, with AI of 3 factions, civilians and so on. can be played coop or TvT or TvTvT ! you can find the servers filtering the name " DWAR " or at the IP: dolfrang.ddns.net on port 2312 the domination and port 2302 the TDM both run vanilla arma3 for maximum compatibility, plus a set of scripts that add a lot more deep to vanilla gameplay (like drag soldiers and some objects, attach explosives on objects/vehicles, dual primary on back, and much more..) to not bore you all, i place more infos about missions running on server in the following spoiler, anyway for more infos contact is : ddelfino@hotmail.com
  19. NOTE: 1.80. PROF/PERF up! you don't need need new client on PERF/PROF server ! there is branch on steam you may use, but beware that sometimes data on my dropbox're newer due to manual build e.g. on weekend: Servers (down, up only if needed): PERF = STABLE branch compatible, no debug layer, no #captureFrame nor diag_captureFrame PROF = STABLE branch compatible, with debug layer, with #captureFrame / diag_captureFrame possible server fps increases and clients may experience higher fps too downloads

  21. Private session?

    Is it possible to have a password required for servers? Or integrate with steam friends list for invite-only sessions? I found the link to download the server files to run on my pc after not finding any already running but from what I can tell it is always publicly accessible.
  22. Somewhat new player here. I am a South African player that has to play on EU servers (About 200-250 ms ping) because of the lack of official servers in South Africa. Now there is actually four servers in South Africa, but they aren't official, which gives the South African playerbase very little incentive to actually play there. So what I was wondering is if there is any possibility for one or two official servers in South Africa. Seeing as the South African community is still fairly small only one or two servers would be sufficient.
  23. I've noticed some server admins here in the past, so I'm hoping you guys can help out! I've got a virtualized Debian server running, and it worked just fine before the latest update (1.80.143869 is the issue). I've followed this medium guide, and it was fine. It worked on LAN and WAN, with and without mods. One day, it just stopped working. Now, even with a fresh VM that has access to WAN, a fresh install of arma3server, open ports for the game and Battleye, my friends and I can't connect over WAN. LAN works as expected. Over WAN, all we get is an error saying "Connection failed", and my terminal doesn't show an attempted connection. I can post my log if needed. Any tips would be greatly appreciated! Also, I'm not installing it on a Windows server. I am keeping my lab Linux only, especially since it was working previously. Incoming connections are from x64 Windows clients. Distro: debian-9.0-standard Version (server and client): 1.80.143869 Open ports: 2302-2306 UDP; 2344 TCP/UDP to; 2345 TCP to Configs: https://pastebin.com/sC7mYsJL

  25. hey guys, i have created a gamemode for dedicated servers, but right now its not possible to continue it after the server shut down. Before we tested on a dedicated server, the mission was meant to be hosted directly from arma, so we could hit "save & exit" but that obviously didnt work. Here comes my question: what stuff needs to be stored in my database and what gets saved by arma? There are quite some scripts with many variables that need to be saved, as well as the position of vehicles on the map and their condition. Hope you guys can help me. Thanks in advance
