Didnt think much of it at first bc i was just thinking i can change to third later. now that im done editting and changing almost everything i realize its locked in first person. i was just asking where the option or what file in the FTP would i need to edit to change the cameraview or what not.

Open your server cfg file (Sometimes called server.cfg or maybe config.cfg) and find this (Yours will have the name of your map in it):

// MISSIONS CYCLE (see below)
class Missions
{
	class Exile
	{
		template = Exile.Esseker;
		difficulty = "Custom"; // ExileRegular or ExileHardcore
	}; 
};

Make sure difficulty = "Custom"; is set and then open your server's .ARMA3PROFILE file and paste this in it:

difficulty="Custom";
class DifficultyPresets
{
	class CustomDifficulty
	{
		class Options
		{
			groupIndicators=2;
			friendlyTags=0;
			enemyTags=0;
			detectedMines=0;
			commands=1;
			waypoints=2;
			weaponInfo=1;
			stanceIndicator=1;
			reducedDamage=0;
			staminaBar=0;
			weaponCrosshair=1;
			visionAid=0;
			thirdPersonView=1;
			cameraShake=1;
			scoreTable=1;
			deathMessages=1;
			vonID=1;
			mapContent=0;
			autoReport=0;
			multipleSaves=0;
		};
		aiLevelPreset=2;
	};
	class CustomAILevel
	{
		skillAI=1;
		precisionAI=0;
	};
};

That depends on how your host has it set up. Look for a folder called "Users". The file will be called something like arma3.ARMA3PROFILE or maybe sc.ARMA3PROFILE. It really depends. Sometimes this folder is inside of the BattlEye folder.

the code inside of it is;

version=1;
blood=1;
singleVoice=0;
gamma=1;
brightness=1;
maxSamplesPlayed=96;
sceneComplexity=1000000;
shadowZDistance=100;
viewDistance=3800;
preferredObjectViewDistance=3200;
terrainGrid=3.125;
volumeCD=10;
volumeFX=10;
volumeSpeech=10;

volumeSpeech=10;
volumeVoN=10;
vonRecThreshold=0.029999999;
 

add this above it:

difficulty="Custom";
class DifficultyPresets
{
	class CustomDifficulty
	{
		class Options
		{
			groupIndicators=2;
			friendlyTags=0;
			enemyTags=0;
			detectedMines=0;
			commands=1;
			waypoints=2;
			weaponInfo=1;
			stanceIndicator=1;
			reducedDamage=0;
			staminaBar=0;
			weaponCrosshair=1;
			visionAid=0;
			thirdPersonView=1;
			cameraShake=1;
			scoreTable=1;
			deathMessages=1;
			vonID=1;
			mapContent=0;
			autoReport=0;
			multipleSaves=0;
		};
		aiLevelPreset=2;
	};
	class CustomAILevel
	{
		skillAI=1;
		precisionAI=0;
	};
};

 

the in the  exileconfig.cfg set the mission to this:

// MISSIONS CYCLE (see below)
class Missions
{
	class Exile
	{
		template = Exile.yourmapname;
		difficulty = "Custom"; // ExileRegular or ExileHardcore
	}; 
};

 

BE SURE TO EDIT THE Exile.yourmapname TO CORRESPOND TO THE MAP YOU ARE RUNNING!
