UEP BattlEye Extended Controller Installer

 

This is an installer created by me under the Unified Epoch Project to allow server hosters to easily and properly install BEC into their servers on any epoch map.

 

FEATURES:

 

Auto Downloads and installs the latest BEC into your server

 

Supports GUI dialogue options for users to configure BEC settings

 

Comes with a pre set up scheduler that will auto restart server every 3 hours

 

Officially supported by the BEC creator and can be found on their site!

Thanks guys, it was a fun project to write. I wrote it in two different computer languages before I decided which one to release it in  :lol:

Installation went fine, except when I click the start it runs my server fine. But once it launches the BE window it says Waiting for Server Startup.

Please make sure that the server password you type in is the same as your database password that you have set up in your server hive.ext file.

Well I had a little talk with the creator of BattlEye Extended Controls and this tool will soon have a home on their official website! :D

To the developer.

this can be a case of the name of the server has been renamed. IE. from Arma2oaserver.exe to somethign else.

when this happens Bec will fail to startup unless you specify this in the config file or use --dsc.

You should adapt the tool so it check the file info on the exe files in the dir, to ensure that it has set the ServerExeName in the config if this happens.

Verified my password. server name. Same issue  <_<

I am really eager to fix your problem as I don't want anyone else to have problems with this tool, so I have a couple of questions to ask. Is this a new install of the server using all the default setting? Have you changed anything dealing with your instance folder? Have you edited any of the server .bat files?

 

Once I figure out your problem I will edit the tool to take care of these types of issues. ;)

I'll add a new folder, and re pull all files from steam, and setup a new server. Then re run the program, I'll let you know what happens.

Just make sure that you do all the stuff needed for the new steam update in your bat files or your server won't start before or after my tool.

I am glad to hear that it is working now for you, I was getting concerned since I was literally stumped at what it was causing the problem :lol:

Unrelated to this post, but are there any overviews to what BEC plugins are out there?

There is a list of the plugins available on the official BEC website on the left side of the linked page, I am sure you can google them individually to see all about them. As for an overview there really isn't one, I may have to put one together in the near future.  :)

nice..
 

if your open to suggestion. what about a checkbox for advance configuration ?
Ie, if this box is checked you can go through some of the setting and enable example. asciichat only, ignorechatchars. maxplayernamelenght. slotlimit etc etc.
just an idea.

anyway keep up the work :)

That is actually a great idea, I will put that as well in the next update. :P  I am always open to suggestions to improve my software, if anyone has any more suggestions feel free to tell me.

Could be a problem with ip's

 

 

Sometimes as host, localhost or 127.0.0.1 doesnt find it.

 

Then i have to give in the server actual ip.

 

Strange stuff that BEC ^^

Is there any way to release actual code instead of compiled version to actually see what's going on

When I was first making this tool I had planned to release the source code for it, but after weighing the pros and cons of doing so the cons were just simply higher than the pros. So I actually rewrote the entire tool in another language that was compilable to avoid the following issues.
 
-Outside alteration of installer that would be detrimental to its success and/or packaging harmful code
-Removal of branding and authorship for the purpose of re-distribution
 
Honestly there are only two pros to releasing the source code that being people may know of a better way of coding some of the features and people trusting my code more since they can see what it does. People will eventually trust my code regardless of it being compiled if my software carries a good reputation that precedes it, such trust is something to develop over time not over night so this doesn't bother me.
 
So in conclusion I do not plan on releasing the source code for this tool unless the full community demands I do so with a valid reason beyond me being a new developer that hasn't earned his metal yet.

I don't see the point of posting this here but ok. No I don't plan on releasing the source code for my tool as I did say in my github issue post, there is no reason to.

Yea that is why I say it is best to put the wide area network ip for the server, so that way there is no issues :)

      Hi folks!
       
      I'm trying to move the Vehicle Spawns for Traders, Especially Klen and Bash. Seems like the vehicles spawn right next to the trader that sells vehicles wondering how on earth do I move them!
      As far as I know.. you add the "HeliHCivil" but apart from I dunno how to link up the trader to that spawn
       
      Any help would be great! Thank you
