Help to set up a GTXGaming server from scratch?

16 posts in this topic

Hi!

So im a bit stupid :$  

I should not have rented an server without understanding the principles of how to run it. Well I did and now im trying to learn the basics. 

I love Exile and wanted to have my own server with some friends. A PVE place where we could fight AI:s and learn how to make proper bases. Later on my plan was to make it open for the public and add PVP-areas etc. 

I got the server from GTX-gaming since i dont know how to setup one myself. I figured i could learn the basics once I just had a "vanilla" Exile mod up and running.  Well it was much harder then we thought. First off I couldent even get in to the server. I got stuck at a black screen with the messege: "Fetching settings from server". After a few hours i managed to fix it by installing EXTDb2 Update from the GTXgaming controll panel. 

 

And thats where im at right now. I have a server up and running but no AI´s or admintools or anything else for that matter.  

Is there a patient kind soul around here that has the time to help me figure this stuff out? I have googled and googled and i just dont understand how im supposed to add stuff to my server. 

What we want on the server is:

AI´s! We want to be able to do missions against AI´s to gather loot and have some fun maybee even roaming ones so you have to be careful at all times. But I have no idea where to even start :( I have used launchers for everything in Arma and im currently using the A3 launcher to add maps and mods to my own game. So how do I add maps and mods to an Exile server located at GTX-gaming? 

Below is a picture of how the controll panel in GTX-gaming looks. Please explain it to me like im five years old. Even tho im over 30 i feel like someone needs to hold my hand here. Like I said im new to all of this. Even opening a config file in notepad kinda scares me xD

Is it possible to change map to Chernarus , Taviana or Panthera for example?

How can I admin a server? I searched for admin tools för the Exile mod and finally bought one from infiSTAR. I just dont know how to impliment it to the GTX-server. 

 

I know im asking for much but atleast its worth a try. If anyone wants to spend some time helping me with the setup ill gladly buy you a steam game for the trouble (Max 50 Euros) 

 

I have a TS if you want to come buy and give some advice: 109.169.18.162:9998

Hello,

I find myself in the same situation as Swenorth since I already have an ark server from GTX, but I can see setting up a PVE Exile server for Chernarus with trader zones, spawn places, custom loadout, extra vehicles and AI missions is wayyy more to it than meets the eye.

I read these days lots of stuff about setting a server up and modifying it, yet I can't seem to understand the principles very well, although the guys who made the tutorials tried to made them simple and intuitive.

So my question is addressed to anyone who is willing to help me understand all this stuff if they don't have anything else better to do or if they like teaching. Consider it a pass of knowledge from one to another, and as Swenorth mentioned in his post, I am willing as well to pay for that knowledge.

I know a long road lies ahead, but I am a quick learner and will also help others once I understand how to apply all the new information because I like helping out when I can.

I truly hope someone will have the necessary patience to guide me through this journey.

Kind regards,

Mike

I'm most likely going to use QGS if you read there page you'll see thru seven pages they answer our noob questions for pretty much anything you can think of and ARE willing to setup the server for you. I'll let you know how it goes.

Hi MarvellousOne,

Yup, I contacted them also and emailed with Mr. Craig regarding setting up a server from them because let's be honest, their offer is what differentiates them from the rest, not to mention the price for what you receive is very decent to say at least.

A made a big list of things to be added/enabled and now I'm waiting for a response.

Would be nice to hear from you also for what you opted (mods etc) and how it goes with the server.

Kind regards,

Mike

I added quite a few and even forgot some and when I mentioned was told no problem. From Ryan zombies, rz infection, exile z, lift and tow, deploy bike, all cups options, dms, enigma revive system, status bar, infistar ( I had to buy but still! It's a big install ) helicopter crashes, helicopter supply drops, and few more. They said they'd get them installed today ( I live in Canada so I'm hoping there done within 12-14 hours from this post.

Also there picture on page 5 does not do the one click installs justice as they've added SO many more! I didn't ask them to install mas vehicles  for example as its already in the one click install section.
