[Release] UEP BattlEye Extended Controller Installer

Recommended Posts

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!

 

 

Download:

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.

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.

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.

Seems to be working perfect now ^_^

 

Something on my end for my other servers, I'll have to look into it more tomorrow.

 

Thanks for this amazing 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:

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
Brandon Batton

bbatton commented an hour ago
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.

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 :)

      Made a short video on youtube and wanted to share.
      Click here to see the video on youtube.
      Please let me know what you think.

      ----------------------------------------OLD POST BELOW-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Hope I am posting in correct location. If not please tell me where I can post.
      What I am posting is possible because of many resources on the internet. A lot information was learned on http://stackoverflow.com/
      Thank you to TheDuke for giving me one of his start bat files.
      Thank you to all the unknown that contributed over the years on different sites.
      This is something I have been working on for the last two weeks. It is still a work in progress.
      What it is, simply an admin launcher. I found that if I deal with more than two server this helps a lot. Plus it was something to do lol. 
      So here we go: FIRST MAKE A FOLDER CALLED SERVERS OR CALL IT WHAT EVER YOU WANT. the files we will be making will go into that folder
      We will make a bat file for origins 1.9.7.5 dayzoverwatch  dayz_epoch
      First thing lets make that bat file.
      If I were you I would use Notepad++  What a great program
      Open a new doc and save as origins_opoch_Chernarus.bat or what ever name you want BUT IT MUST HAVE .bat at the end
      Copy the following and paste it in the new file you just make called  origins_opoch_Chernarus.bat
      ===========================================================================
      EDITED ON 12/31/2016 01/17/2017
      QUESTION:   .bat file is updated with password settings
      Lets say I have a server. That server has a password. The password is dog
      How would I add the password to the bat file?  
      Right now if I try to join a server with a password it will say, you enter the wrong pass word.
      Then I go to multiplayer and select the server and enter the password dog and I am in.
      The .bat file is right below this
      ============================================================================
       
       
      Now make a file and name it bat_test.hta or what ever you want. Copy and paste the following in it and save to the folder SERVERS
      What I did at this point was made a shortcut of the dat_test.hta to my desktop after that double chick it and it should work. Did for me. 
      as you can see I left some of my information in so you could try it out.
      OF COURSE THE LINE <p><a href="E:/BAT START FILES/origins_opoch_Chernarus.bat">Origins Overwatch Epoch Chernarus</a></p> points to where I have my folder
      YOU WILL NEED TO CHANGE THE LOCATION OF THE BAT FILE TO WHERE EVER YOU PUT THE FOLDER CALLED SERVERS.
      Like I said this is a work in progress. If you have anything you would like to  share, that would be great.

      14 FEBRUARY 2018 - INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS UPDATED (REMOTE EXEC WHITE LIST)!
      04 FEBRUARY 2018 - WE ARE ON v002!
      Thanks to the Discord pals for helping in tailore BRPVP Zombies to Epoch.
       
      Hi:
      My name is Donnovan and i bring here the BRPVP Zombies for Epoch Mod.
      (You can know more about BRPVP here: http://www.brpvp.com)
      BRPVP Zombies are made of: code, +code, some few images and sounds.



      Here the files v002 (size 432Kb):
      4 February 2018 - https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ANHL_SaFdKlJOLrDV6CakOD7HTNwVr4T/view?usp=sharing
       
      License:
      http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
      You must use the words "BRPVP zombies" or "BRPVP-Z" in your server name and give proper credits to the Author (Andre Luis AKA Donnovan).
       
      BRPVP Zombies was done completelly stand alone, but with Epoch in mind.
       
      BE Filters Info:
      1 - The variables set on zombies and target, with setVariable, have the prefix "brpvp_", for easy BE Filter management.
      2 - BRPVP Zombies make use of 3 public variables, the variable names start with "BRPVP_" for easy BE Filters management.
       
      Remote Exec White List:
      You need that in your description.ext:
      class CfgRemoteExec { class Functions { mode = 1; jip = 0; class BRPVP_remoteExec { allowedTargets = 0; jip = 1; }; }; }; If you already have a class CfgRemoteExec {...}; declaration in your description.ext you will need to merge the above with the one you have.
       
      Custom Epoch "FiredMan" Event Handler:
      Get the code inside player addEventHandler ["FiredMan",{...this code...}]; in the file brpvp_zombies_stuff_client.sqf and put it in the Epoch file EPOCH_custom_EH_FiredMan.sqf (see https://github.com/EpochModTeam/Epoch/blob/release/Sources/epoch_code/customs/EPOCH_custom_EH_FiredMan.sqf).
       
      description.ext file:
      BRPVP Zombies have some sound declarations in description.ext. You will need to merge it with your description.ext.
       
      Gameplay:
      BRPVP Zombies add two types of zombies:
      1 - Fixed zombies in infected cities: they stay on some cities and can be triggered from near or from far, with your proximity or with bullet hit.
      Here the configuration for fixed zombies and infected cities:
      //FIXED ZOMBIES ON DEDICATED SERVER BRPVP_fixedZombiesAmount = [ [[1],[10],35,["NameVillage"]], [[1],[10],35,["NameVillage"]], [[1],[10],35,["NameVillage"]], [[1],[10],35,["NameVillage"]], [[2],[15],40,["NameVillage"]], [[2],[15],40,["NameVillage"]], [[2,3],[40,60],100,["NameCity","NameVillage"]], [[4,5],[120,160],150,["NameCityCapital","NameCity"]] ]; BRPVP_fixedZombiesReviveTime = 1800; //SECONDS TO A FIXED ZOMBIE TO REVIVE, THEY ONLY REVIVE IF THERE IS NO PLAYER NEAR Reading above, you will have 8 infected cities on your mission.
      Explaning line 7: [[2,3],[40,60],100,["NameCity","NameVillage"]]
      Zombies will have its force random selected from 2 or 3, they will be in number of 40 if force is 2 and will be in number of 60 if force is 3. The spawn radius in the city will be 100 meters, and the city selected for those zombies will be randonly picked from the list of Cities and Villages provided by the map.
      2 - Context spawned zombies: those zombies will spawn when you are in places with near houses or buildings. You can avoid those zombies to spawn by obscuring your self like walking near walls, entering in houses, going crouch or prone, stay high from the ground, stay near big objects like wreck cars and all kind of objects or group of objects that can block the perception of you.
       
      Configuration:
      All the BRPVP Zombies configurations can be found in this file: brpvp_zombies_config.sqf.

      When I send a group invite, the players join, great.  Then you get all this radio chatter and speech text telling you to regroup, heli 1500m out, and BS BS BS . How do I turn off the radio chatter and the speech text?

      Hi there, I would like to move this file to my server pbo.
       I have moved it to my mission pbo and tested by changing the call to this and it spawns fine.
      For some reason however I can not get it to spawn if it is placed server side and executed from server_functions.sqf either using [] execVm, execVm or call compile preprocessFileLineNumbers.
      The main reason for wanting to move this file is that when I edit my map I dont want to place any objects over existing ones. If it is not going to be possible then an alternative will be to load the buildings in the 3d editor make my map and just remove the duplicates that already spawn/exist in chernarus11.sqf 
      Contents of chernarus11.sqf below extracted from dayz_code.
      Thanks in advance !
