[SOLVED] Headless Client Suckage

Question

Posted (edited)

Is a headless client a feature that is currently functional in Exile and Arma 3?  Whenever I try to implement a headless client Arma3Server.exe crashes along with the headless client.  In fact, I narrowed it down to whenever the below code is added to the mission.sqm.  The headless client doesn't even need to be running.  Just adding the below code will crash your server:

class Item100
                {
                    position[]={13239.08,16.010651,11685.795};
                    special="NONE";
                    id=100;
                    side="LOGIC";
                    vehicle="HeadlessClient_F";
                    player="PLAY CDG";
                    skill=0.60000002;
                    text="HC";                        
                    forceHeadlessClient=1;
                };

Does anyone actually have a headless client working?

Thanks

I run multiple headless clients on my linux dedi without issue. You need to make sure you add the headlessclient slot in the correct location. Here's a copy of my mission, I put four slots for headless clients. http://pastebin.com/Fp2RfWZW

@smelting Thank you for your response.  I'll give it a go.  However, how come your code looks somewhat different than mine?  Are you utilizing A3XAI with any of those headless clients?  Thanks.

Thanks dude.  I was able to successfully get A3XAI running under a headless client. I can already see the performance gains.  Thank you so so so so much.
