  • Creating Dedicated Servers

    1. browse to your ArmA2/OA directory
    2. create a config file - call it whatever you want (e.g. server.cfg)
    3. open it in a plain text editor - paste & edit:

    hostname="My Server Name";
    passwordAdmin="myAdminPassword";
    password="myPassword";

    replace the stuff in quotes, delete the whole password line if you don't want your server to be passworded

    4. create a shortcut to arma2server.exe or arma2oaserver.exe (right click -> create shortcut)
    5. right click your shortcut and add to target:
    -config=server.cfg [email protected];@TGMaps
    replacing server.cfg with your config file name and @ACEM;@TGMaps with the mods you require

    your final target line should look like
    "L:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\common\arma 2\arma2server.exe" [email protected];@TGMaps -config=server.cfg
    or for a vanilla server:
    "L:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\common\arma 2\arma2server.exe" -config=server.cfg

    6. run your shortcut

      huh what?

      I thought people should know how to make their own dedis so there isn't a total reliance on the TG test servers which can be occupied and clumsier than using your own

          A thread with useful information for developing (specifically testing) missions in the mission dev forum. Maybe its just me, but that seems logical :P
