[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!

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.

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

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 :)

      I know of some questions in the forums regarding custom loot crates with available missions systems. I have managed to create a custom loot crate thanks to @DAmNRelentless help, that randomizes items and weapons from user customizable arrays and integrate this with the mission system. This for the time being works for DZAI on Epoch 1.0.6.2. 
      Following is my custom lootcrate.sqf , all the classnames used is from the official epoch 1.0.6.2 github repo with thanks to @salival found >here<
      From here I have added the following script to my custom DZAI spawns found in \z\addons\dayz_server\DZAI\init\world_spawn_configs\custom_spawns\cust_spawns_panthera2.sqf. Obviously you will use the sqf appropriate to your map etc.
      ["staticspawn",10,2,true] call DZAI_spawn_units; if {DZAI_spawn_units && DZAI_despawnWait == true} then { execVM "\z\addons\dayz_server\custom\lootcrate.sqf"; }; This method might need some tweaking and someone else might have a more effective way of doing this, but for me this works perfectly. Fully tested with random loot spawns after new AI group spawned.

      Can anyone familiar with DZAI help me with a way to time my custom crates to respawn with DZAI custom static AI. I have the randomized crate spawn at server startup, and essentially will be looted once the base has been cleared from all AI. Currently it will "refill" the crate based on a sleep timer. I would like to have the crate refill once the next round of AI spawns based on these values set:
      DZAI_respawnTimeMin = 300; DZAI_respawnTimeMax = 600; Any help will be appreciated. This is my current loot crate configuration. Thanks for @DAmNRelentless who guided me in creating this script.

      i have seen a lot of people looking for epoch 1.0.6.2 class names with very little information available on where to find the full lists if you are planning on doing some custom loot crates for static mission spawns. I found on the Epoch Github Repo all the items available to 1.0.6.2.
      I hope that others find it as useful as I have.
