Suggestion: Multiplayer server filters need to be more extensive
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I would like to separate servers by more criterion. I would also like to be able to favorite a server then filter my favorites.

-difficulty (Recruit, veteran,...)
-3rd person view on/off
-favorite servers
-filter OUT by specific words
-Show ingame time (night vs. day)
(I will add more as people suggest in the notes)

Why is this marked as major?

I'd like a filter that hides servers from the list if they include words such as "wasteland" in the server or mission name.

If i want to play a post-apocalypse deathmatch without zombies, i'll just play DayZ on ARMA 2.

Edit: But this isn't a major issue.

Sorry about listing it as major. I'm a noob to alpha testing and this is my first post. I changed it to "feature". I hope that is more appropriate.

I agree that the issue is related, but my post is different and more specific.

I would like to see wildcard expansion on hostnames and version checking to kick out incompatible servers.

A more advanced approach would be to allow players to create lists of filters. Basically have a dropdown of all possible filters (player count, max players, battleye, hostname, etc). Selecting one gives you possible values and/or input boxes, then you click "add" to add it to the list. Maybe just have this as an advanced tab in the server dialog.

Since ARMA is such an open simulation with many different playstyles ranging from COD-like (with 3rd person and crosshair) to hardcore, I think good server setting filters are a must.
Please add a "no crosshair" filter as well.

We are very sorry, this issue was closed as duplicate.
