Dedicated servers do not load profile namespace variables
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Dedicated servers don't seem to load profile namespace variables even though they properly save them into <profile>.vars.Arma3Profile file. {F22200}


Legacy ID
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start profileNamespace_dedi_repro.Altis on dedicated server
  2. Join and start the mission
  3. Look into server RPT and look for following lines:

profileNamespace getVariable "test" = <null>
profileNamespace getVariable "test" = *RANDOMSTRING*
It supposed to save this random string as "test" variable into profile namespace

  1. Restart dedicated server, join and start mission again.
  2. Look into RPT once more, you will see that

profileNamespace getVariable "test" = <null>
test variable is null again even though value is properly saved in vars.Arma3Profile on dedicated server.
If you repeat same test on non-dedicated server it will work fine.

"seems like we need loadProfileNamespace command"

Thats not the problem. The problem is that the profile is being overwritten once the dedicated server starts.

Could someone please retest this? I've done some changes to loading profile on dedicated server so it is possible that it will fix this.
It should be in latest DEV 1.17.116429

WOW! Are you a wizard, Nesquick? It works!

profileNamespace setVariable ["test", "fuck yeah"];

on server restart

profileNamespace getVariable ["test", ""]; //fuck yeah

Very nice!! I would like to test this, too. Sorry for the noob question, but where can I download dev version 1.17.116429 of the server for linux?

Legend nesquick!

Good work Nesquick :D

To metafa:
No we don't have any dev version of linux dedicated server. It will be too much steam branches.

Thanks for the info Nesquick!

Any indication when this will be on stable? days, weeks, months? Thanks a lot!

I think it will be in few weeks, but I don't know that.

Thanks! You have been very helpful.

Thank you for the fix Nesquick. If the fix was fairly simple i will LOVE if you could port the fix over to ArmA 2 which still has this bug. Thank you.
