3LGStevo added a comment to T123908: Player Disconnect issue.

I've found the instance of my server session wasn't running the mod for some reason. I mustn't have saved the start up powershell script when adding the command parameter before executing it or something. However, the problem still stands... this is an absolutely mind-boggling oversight that Bohemia can release an update without the basic respawn functionality working, and don't release the patch to rectify the issue when they identify it.

3LGStevo added a comment to T123897: Land_Offices_01_V1_F - No longer found as Building or revealing under CursorTarget.

Another strange thing is that when in debug mode, if I look at the office building and use "CursorTarget", it returns "ObjNull", yet when using "CursorObject", the command returns the offices.
Using CursorTarget above in specifying the bis_disabled_door variable, it still assigned it...

@56curious - IF you took the time to read my post, you'd see that I still want VON enabled.
I already have a makeshift script to disable it, but as soon as any client lag is experienced, the makeshift "fixes" do not work... hence why I have made this ticket to actually have an inbuilt option to remove the voice from created channels using the create custom radio channel commands.

Is that the same for how diag_log shows that information?
Because all of my database queries now have ""2"" etc around numbers from selected lists where as before in diag_log they displayed as 2...
For those fields, I don't have any of them using str() they're loaded and used as integers once compiled from the string format in the query.

This has broken basic functionality of the compile command. String arrays "["text","text,"text"]" now compile as [""text"",""text"",""text""] and throw errors because it is not written as "",text,"","",text, etc...

On the new server, with better memory, storage and processing, the server performs even worse.
It takes about 10 minutes for it to even appear in the server browser, which suggests the problem is with the arma3server release for 1.60.

The server runs on x86 as well, which is bad. He process itself usually runs quite high in its maximum utilisation of 2047MB (as malloc describes anyway). Not to mention the recent build is full of memory crashes for dedicated servers...
X64 processing is always going to be better and faster.

It's just not going to be feasible with Arma3.

3LGStevo added a comment to T86239: Random kick to side select....

This is potentially caused by texture files (not entirely sure how or why).
We stumbled across something about corrupt texture files and how they're causing the server to crash, and we'd just updated a texture before the issue started occurring to everyone (note, the issue was apparent before the update of textures).
I've since removed the texture and excluded it from the scripts and we haven't had anyone kicked to side select yet.

3LGStevo added a comment to T86239: Random kick to side select....

The issue randomly fixed itself... After booting 15 people back to side select screen every 5-10 minutes, after the server was online for 90 minutes it just stopped kicking everyone and we changed nothing.

This leads me to believe it's potentially a networking issue or a performance issue. It still could have something to do with the new config parameter... Should the config parameter show a "disconnected" message when if removes an inactive client?

For the record, we're now using v17 perf files and timeoutDisconnect is set to 120.

May 10 2016, 1:01 PM · Arma 3
3LGStevo added a comment to T86239: Random kick to side select....

I have the following set in Config_server.cfg;
disconnectTimeout = 30;

I noticed on Dwarden's post in the server perf binaries that this is a new command. Would it be this that could be causing the disconnect to side-select without stating the player has disconnected?

Something that is concerning is usually when a player disconnects, it displays "player has disconnected" in systemChat.
Through this problem, it is not logging a player disconnect in systemChat either...

I have no scripts that I know of that would remove someone to the side select screen (or abort them, which is essentially what's happening...).

When the channels are first created, they're created empty, and players are adding into this on joining the server.

On server;
life_radio_west = radioChannelCreate [[0, 0, 0.8, 0.8], "Police Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false]; ID 6
life_radio_civ = radioChannelCreate [[0.5, 0, 0.6, 0.8], "Civilian Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false];
ID 7
life_radio_indep = radioChannelCreate [[0, 1, 0.2, 0.8], "EMS Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false]; ID 8
life_radio_rebel = radioChannelCreate [[0.5,0,0,0.8], "Rebel Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false];
ID 9
life_radio_corp = radioChannelCreate [[0,0.8,0,0.8], "Army Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false]; ID 10
life_radio_bh = radioChannelCreate [[0, 0.95, 1, 0.8], "Bounty Hunter Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false];
ID 11
life_radio_global = radioChannelCreate [[0.8,0.8,0.8,0.8], "Global Channel", "%UNIT_NAME", [], false]; // ID 12

On server when player joins (inside switch based on playerside);
case west:
{

		if(_bool) then
		{
			life_radio_west radioChannelAdd [_unit];
			life_radio_global radioChannelAdd [_unit];
		}
			else
		{
			life_radio_west radioChannelRemove [_unit];
			life_radio_global radioChannelRemove [_unit];
		};

};

The same section of code also handles the removal, should the correct circumstances occur.

3LGStevo added a comment to T85862: customChat command doesn't do anything....

I've tried several ways; using all custom channels I've created 6-12, different test strings, tried sending text through too, used player as the object, a gamelogic, a player assigned in a local variable, global variable... the actual player name.

None have returned any text in the channels.
I'm basically setting up a scenario where when a player accepts a task assignment, and they automatically post an update to their commander where they're heading for the task.

Yep, channel 6 effectively replaces the side channel for West, but also adds in a couple of other players and renames it.
Players can talk freely in this channel (and all other custom channels, upto 12).
Each ID was obtained from when they were created on the server, but I've also confirmed the channel numbers by selecting the custom radio channel and then opening the debug console and typing hint format["%1",currentChannel];

3LGStevo added a comment to T64077: better control over vehicles please?.

I would love something like this included.

Also, it wouldn't have to be quite so complex as a gear system, but BI could just implement a setMaxVelocity command that allows us to define our own gear system, cruise control systems, or refine vehicle max speeds.

KeyHandlers can be used with that command to define manual gears, and other scripts could use the command to better restrict the vehicle for other uses.

The one thing I don't understand is, vehicles cap their own speed when driving on different terrain (hatchback for example drives only 27km/h off any type of road) but it also factors in hills... allowing scripters access to this would be amazing.
