Hi all, im trying to setup a test tanoa server on my lan, but i cannot workout how to actualy get the map

 

I have ran the following batch file but it just seems to download the stable version as i cannot find map_tanoa.pbo or and reference to tanoa.

Spoiler

@echo off
@rem http://media.steampowered.com/installer/steamcmd.zip
SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION

       :: DEFINE the following variables where applicable to your install

    SET STEAMLOGIN=******** ********
    SET A3serverBRANCH=107410 -beta development
        :: For stable use 233780 -beta
        :: For Dev use 233780 -beta development
                :: Note, the missing qotation marks, these need to be wrapped around the entire "+app_data......"
                :: There is no DEV branch data yet for Arma 3 Dedicated Server package !!!

    SET A3serverPath=C:\Game-Servers\ExileServer
        SET STEAMPATH=C:\Game-Servers\Steamcmd


:: _________________________________________________________

echo.
echo     You are about to update ArmA 3 server
echo        Dir: %A3serverPath%
echo        Branch: %A3serverBRANCH%
echo.
echo     Key "ENTER" to proceed
pause
%STEAMPATH%\steamcmd.exe +login %STEAMLOGIN% +force_install_dir %A3serverPath% +"app_update %A3serverBRANCH%" validate +quit
echo .
echo     Your ArmA 3 server is now up to date
echo     key "ENTER" to exit
pause
 

does the dev server branch not work? do i need to subscribe to the preview and then copy my game files over and use them as the server?

 

Sorry this is probably something really stupid but i have just spent the last hr on google and found nothing of use, also searched the forum with little luck.

 

Any help would be awesome

Cheers

I have never done this but from reading your batch file, would you not have to change the A3serverBRANCH version?

Maybe try changing

SET A3serverBRANCH=107410 -beta development
        :: For stable use 233780 -beta
        :: For Dev use 233780 -beta development

to

SET A3serverBRANCH=233780 -beta development
        :: For stable use 233780 -beta
        :: For Dev use 233780 -beta development

107410 is client files

233780 is server files (smaller download, doesn't include things like launcher files, etc...)

you also need to buy the expansion or it won't download the client files.

FFS. I feel dumb as f*** right now, I use a dif acct in my batch file lol. Weird that if you use -beta apex_sneak_preview instead of -beta development it works without purchase.

the sneak preview is to allow people who haven't bought it to try the vehicles and weapons in the virtual armory
