Linux Dedicated Server arma3profile not working
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Either this feature is not working, or has unexpected behaviour.

Below I will put my launch parameters.

./arma3server -server -noSound -profiles=/home/arma/arma3/serverprofile/ -name=server -cfg=basic.cfg -config=server.cfg -ip=*...* -port=2302

The 'serverprofile' directory actually gets created by the serer, BUT, it does not create profile files or folders.

Naturally I attempted to create the files myself (using a copy of a file from my windows dedicated server) which didn't work.

I tried putting my server.arma3profile file in two different locations:

  • /home/arma/arma3/serverprofile/server
  • /home/arma/arma3/serverprofile

I also tried the root directory. So the bug is either that the profiles aren't read, aren't implemented, or has radically different behaviour than the windows version of the dedicated server.

How is this not fixed yet? :/

I'd like to add that especially with some hosting providers this can cause quite some headaches, as there often is no way to symlink to the:

~/.local/share/Arma\ 3\ -\ Other\ Profiles/<profilename>

Folder and any access to the arma3profile file is denied.
