  • The server is empty and you want to play.......

    I've been out of pocket for a few weeks and thought I'd get back into ArmA. I logged onto the empty Bravo server, fired up Domi and within 5 minutes some TG PR regulars started logging on. Looks like someone is trying to get ready for this weekends PR event. Someone asked me how I got the server started and I thought with many old faces gone and new faces coming, it might be a good idea to post it. Especially with the addition of PR I feel the ArmA II servers might see some traffic coming from BF2.

    Basically if the server is empty hit "right shift + p" and vote yourself admin. At that point (since you are on the server alone) you are admin. Click on "missions" and the missions screen will pop up and will have them broken down by map. You can select "parameters" and change the missions settings.

      After you vote yourself admin you can also use #missions to bring up the same list. This is very handy if you are trying to end a round as well.

        How do you vote yourself admin? I can get to the correct screen and choose to become admin, but I have not been successful in figuring out how to vote myself in as an admin.

          another thing you can try;

          type in the chat #userlist (this will bring up a list of all the players on the server with a number assigned to them on the left)

          find your name, and the number. Should look like this

          12. |TG-189th| Brettwad (ping 65) or something

          all you do next is type;

          #voteadmin 12

          hit enter, and awaaaaaaaaaaay you go ;)
