[Release] UEP BattlEye Extended Controller Installer

Recommended Posts

Hi, i seemed to install the tool ok and everytime i run the start file the BEC splash window shows up. However i'm getting no restarts and the ingame messages are not woking. Any suggestions what it could be or where to start looking?

I personally have no idea why the restarts or messages wouldn't work. When BEC starts does it say scheduled 42 tasks if so it should be working. If not then BEC can't find your scheduler and you will have to delete all those files and use the installer again. If it still doesn't show up after that then idk :huh:

Make sure you have a bans.txt

 

Also for my problem i just changed it so it shutdown the server and runs the bat at the same time. This is ok becuase there is already a 7 sec delay built into the restart.bat

This solution may be caused by the fact that your computer takes longer to restart the server and bec is executed with not enough to time to locate the server since the server takes so long to start.

When I click on the start.bat in my main server folder, a black window comes up and with something about waiting so many seconds press any key. So I let that count down and then another couple of lines of text flash up in the black window but then the window closes itself before I get a chance to see what the lines say. Not sure if that is the 42 tasks thing you're on about?

 

After the window disappears I get a BEC splash window (red/silver) which stays on for a few moments, along with the boxes and ticks showing me that arma2oa is starting. After a short while the these disappear and I'm left with the usual server host box.

 

Make sure you have a bans.txt

 

Also for my problem i just changed it so it shutdown the server and runs the bat at the same time. This is ok becuase there is already a 7 sec delay built into the restart.bat

 

I didn't have this in my files so I added it in the same folder with whitelist, admins, scheduler etc, but it's made no difference. I still get no restarts, no messages or anything.

 

Any other thoughts before I have to try reinstalling it?

No becasue when i run the restart bat it works. It looks like to me that the delay between the server stopping and bec running the bat file is too long that bec shutsdown becasue it has lost connection to the armaserver.

The simplest check to know if BEC is even running at all would be to see the messages come up in game. At least then I would know it's processing something. I am sure it's something extremely basic like my file paths are wrong but for the life of me, I've checked again and again.

The file paths shouldn't be wrong unless you changed file names from the default server install.

If anything the wait time would be too short since bec doesn't care when it starts just as long as the server is fully running when it starts.

 

However I recently updated the tool for people who don't have a database password, since before if you didn't have one the tool wouldn't work.

 

The best thing I can recommend is to do a fresh install of your server and then use the UEP BEC Installer again. This is not the first time I have had people not get it to work then they do a fresh install and then everything is fine. Generally if the tool doesn't work right out of the box it is something that you have done to your server that is causing it not to work.

I honestly don't know why that would happen, download it again and try again?....if the problem persists there may be something wrong with your windows interpreter.  :mellow:

Thanks for the input guys, I went through the code and fixed the hang up problem. My IDE auto complete added something that wasn't suppose to be there the last time I made an edit. Thanks for your patience guys, the fix is live on my github it took me a while to post it since I just got the time to set up my desktop again.

When you make your server you define a folder, whatever folder you copied your server files into is the same folder you put the program in.

 

ex:

 

mine is:  Z:\epoch_server\

 

all the arma 2 and arma 2 OA files are in that folder, so is the UEP BEC installer.exe. Run as administrator and after a few questions and a minute or so after picking the map type bec is ready to run. just find the "start.bat" in the folder and double click on it.

 

be sure your server is running before you click the "start.bat".

 

you can edit the messages or timed restarts at your leisure. 

When it says extract into server folder, which folder is this specifically?

Well it installed fine and shut the server down, It then fails to restart it :unsure:

Some documentation would help, what needs done after install ?

 

*Edit*

Let it run a second time and same thing, server stops but never restarts.

Same issue here, it stops the server, but fails to start back up again, if i run restart.bat manually it works fine, any ideas ?

      Hey guys I use to have my own server about 4 years ago and had an awesome time running it, it was small player base maybe 7-8 people online at all times but I still had a blast. I really missed the game and tinkering with scripts and decided it was time to come back and start up a new server, I'm not super great at scripting I have a lot of learning to do but I see myself being here for while and willing to learn. I want to create this not only for advertisement but also to get to know the community better behind the EPOCH mod, I want to tailor my server to what the people want, I also want to get suggestions on cool script ideas and ways to improve the server.
      I'm super busy with work lately and don't have a lot of interaction time in-game with the few people I have seen on, I use DaRT Rcon and have noticed them asking question in-game and I'm unable to answer because by the time I'm home they are already offline. I'll post my server information below and will continue to add and improve to this thread as I think of things over time.
      Server name: SJDayz
      Server IP/Port: 216.244.93.100:6302
      Mod type: Dayz Epoch 1.0.6.2
      Current scripts: KH-Refuel, WAI missions, DZAI, Zabns take clothes, ZSC(single currency), Axe house lights.
      Discord server name: SJDayz (if I need to provide more info for you to join discord let me know, never used it before).
      Additional information: The server will primarily be PVE based meaning you can progress and obtain loot and currency quickly in the game without needing to interact with other players, however PVP is still encouraged so be aware.

      Having issues with the epoch events, I don't seem to be getting my correct schedule timing the way I have it setup I should be getting an event spawn at 5 minutes and then another event spawn every 30, 5, and 20 minutes right?
       
      EpochEvents = [["any","any","any","any",5,"event1"],["any","any","any","any",35,"event1"],["any","any","any","any",5,"event2"],["any","any","any","any",10,"event2"],["any","any","any","any",5,"event3"],["any","any","any","any",25,"event3"]];
       
      So with event number 2 it seems to spawn the first one around 5 minutes and then the other one around 10 minutes but it doesn't continue to spawn after the first two initial ones.

      I am enjoying Grahame's EpochZ immensely.  However, if you are infected by the z's, after 30min you will die (animation for the 30min infection period is excellent btw). Upon death you will be shown the option to re-spawn. At that time you are promptly kicked by BattlEye for setvariable restriction #0:
      04.10.2018 00:14:33: C4-timah (23.119.200.220:2304) 57f9a830eeb99412623ce1c3d14b7d50 - #0 "ryanzombiesinfected" = 0 2:2877 Epoch_Male_F  
      If you are killed by the z's (beaten to death), upon your death you will also be shown a re-spawn option and then promptly kicked again for a BattlEye setvariable restriction #0:
      05.10.2018 21:53:02: C4-timah (23.119.200.220:2304) 57f9a830eeb99412623ce1c3d14b7d50 - #0 "ryanzombiesimmunity" = false 2:17479 Epoch_Male_F Adding
      !"ryanzombiesinfected" = 0 or
      !"ryanzombiesimmunity" = false does not appear to stop the BE kick. All the other filters in the setvariable.txt all start with  !=  which would indicates the filter must match exactly which would lead me to believe the key word that I need is something entirely different. I am using BattlEye Filter Manager to add the exceptions to the setvariable.txt. As you'll see, all the exceptions have !=" instead of !" unlike the last two that I have placed.
      //new2 5 "" !=(traderName|Offer|Accept|BUILD_SLOT|TRADE_ACTIVE|last_targeter|epoch_(antagobj|antagBomb)) !="bis_fnc_objectvar_var" !="bis_fnc_selectrespawntemplate_respawned" !="#(rev_enabled|var)" !="cup_tow_towedveh" !"ryanzombiesimmunity\" = false" !"ryanzombiesinfected\" = 0"  
      My rpt file shows the following error when killed by an EpochZ Zombie:
      17:44:02 BE protection activated for player id=726964973, name='whitehorse', msgType=285 setvariable.log:
      11.10.2018 17:44:02: whitehorse (75.80.233.157:1024) c2568b411cbd25fa774021698eade7c5 - #0 "ryanzombiesinfected" = 0 2:15917 Epoch_Male_F Ideas? Getting kicked every time you get killed by a Z has to be annoying to theses guys and I'd rather not lose the few that are consistently playing on our server. Any help is greatly appreciated.
