[Release] UEP BattlEye Extended Controller Installer

Recommended Posts

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.

I don't blame you for keeping your code private, people can always write their own code if it means that much :)

To all those trying to use my installer or trying to install BEC manually or trying to make automated processes. DO NOT include spaces in your file directory paths, windows will not execute commands like changing directories or executing a file from a specific directory if your file names have spaces in them. This is the very reason why linux doesn't allow spaces in their file names, it is bad to do. :)

huu??

Bec has no problems with spaces.

Works.
BePath = C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Arma 3\servercfg\BattlEye

Works Too
Bec.exe -f "my config file.cfg"   | note the quotes

i dont know about anyone else. but spaces works fine for me.

 

when messing with bat scripts i belive quotes around stuff with spaces helps

For the most part windows can interpret one or two spaces here or there but not several in conjunction with one another. Even if you set the path as a literal it can end up with an error or worse a runtime error with no message. I am adding a notice to my tool that makes people remove their directory path spaces to prevent errors with bat file execution.

An update to the tool will be released today to prevent errors in bat execution. Allot of users tend to make full sentences for folder names and when passing a directory path through BEC windows does not interpret it properly, so this update will address allot of these problems. I am notifying the BEC creator of this issue.

So I have been testing some new features for the tool and I have run into a snag. I was wondering if there was anyone who has used my tool having a hard time getting BEC to connect to their server? I know the root of what is causing this issue for me but was wondering if anyone else was having this problem.  :unsure:

I tested your previouse version and had no problems with it.
From my experiance when Bec will not connect its mostly caused by wrong Battleye path set in the config.

Ofcource there could always be some other issue. i also always check if its something wrong with Bec or the battleye installation by using another Rcon tool to verify with. I know that if you can login with another Rcon tool,. "Ie, Epm Rcon or others".  there is 99% of the time wrong BePath set in Bec config.

Well it turns out my tool was doing it's job, I just had to restart my computer since I created a new test server. :lol:

 

My SSD only had 1Gb left so I just deleted my test server and made a new one on my 2TB drive.....I hate moving around files but i needed the space  :P

Question. How are you going to handle Bec updates in the future?
I know the tool gets the newset Bec version when you run it.

But lets say i already have configured my Bec with your tool.. then there is a new Version of Bec out.
can there be some way to only download the Bec version without doing the hole setup again ?

when i launch Bec it checks for a new version, it is possible that you can do the same ?
or just have a update  Bec checkbox ?

This is a planned feature that I will be including sometime soon. I am currently redesigning the entire tool since I want to expand on it considerably. I will have to figure out a way to do it at the moment since I don't entirely work direct with the BEC team and some of their updates change the way their stuff is written. For example the last update changed the way the scheduler was written and how some of the bat files were written making pre set up files error out.

I noticed in another one of your posts you say you are planning on integrating support for hosters utilizing virtualization.  I am using a Hyper-V VM - is that what is causing this you think?

 

- Thanks!

This is the first time I have seen this error. If you can't run my tool without an error then it is something that you have causing issues on your end, if you are running my tool through a VM make sure that you have a ROM of windows that has all the proper updates.

 

My virtualization integration is for people using server virtualization which is essentially one server acting as dozens of servers on the same machine. So my installer would make as many processes as it could into services and then utilize windows event triggers to run the rest so that way you could have dozens of servers on one box without being logged into anyone of them in order for auto restarts.

It is the batch file that starts your server. If you are using this to install an epoch server the batch file comes with the server files in the examples folder which is key to getting your server to even run epoch. If you are installing for overpoch well you need to find the batch file that you had to create or download and enter its name in. :)

 

I need to add more stuff to the tool to handle overpoch installs now..... :blink:

Please make sure that you entered all the proper information for your server like ip, port, and rcon password. After the install you should always restart your computer, I have run into situations in testing myself were this is caused due to a needed restart. Other than that I always recommend doing a fresh server install and then using this tool before modifying your server. If you have any more questions just let me know.

 

I have been slowly working the new update for the tool and it may come out in about 2 weeks from now since school just started and this is my college senior year. :)

Well it must see the server since if it didn't BEC would just shutdown after a set amount of time. Make sure that your sql server and apache server is running, also make sure that your server is on the proper ports. Let me know if this helps you out. :)

      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.
