  1. Hello, we are seeking paid help in getting our old Exile server back up and running. I ran a considerably popular server titled iBB Exile Dariyah on the map G.O.S. Dariyah (pja307) which reached GameTracker rank 52 for a short period before hitting a rough patch post Arma 3 update which broke Exile mod for all servers for a few days. We had the issue repaired fairly quickly but we eventually chose to take it down after the population didn't rebound as quickly as anticipated, combined with a lack of funds for our top quality hosting package. Thankfully I can now afford to fund the server much easier than in the past, however the flip side is that of course I no longer have the same amount of free time I had before, hence, the help wanted ad. When we went offline I received daily messages regarding the server status, followed by begging for it's revival. We have now been offline for 10 months and I am still receiving inquires on a regular basis, albeit much less frequently than before. In our prime I was considered to be the most helpful in-game admin most users had ever seen, and as a result I still maintain a Steam Friends list of ~240 users of our server from when it was online. This is a direct connection to many of the most prevalent players of our server who are simply one message away from being a part of our population once again. Currently our team consists of myself, a close friend operating as system admin, and an advisor with an immense knowledge of Arma. Historically, I have handled all of the menial tasks such as configuration of the trader lists, missions/AI, loot tables, etc., as well as in-game administration, and media/advertising of the server by way of YouTube videos. Our system admin is highly skilled and our server was an excellent testament to his ability - it ran flawlessly - however he has limited experience with Arma, so digging into game specific issues like glitches or bugs was time consuming for him. Our advisor also handled some other things that were above my head such as the layout of the traders/other custom additions to the map and I would like to have someone familiar with this type of work as well. The other issue we had in the past was keeping up to date with mods (we ran 11) when they released updates, so we'd like to explore ways in which to streamline that process - I also have difficulty understanding BE filters which I believe need to be updated manually each time. We do still have all the files from our previous venture, so the work involved in the initial setup of the server will be minimal. What we're looking for is someone to help fill our gaps in knowledge, time, and availability in terms of time sensitive matters such as updates and the like. We are looking for a long-term, ongoing partnership. For more information on the server please visit Thank you Edit: We also plan to do a fairly drastic reconfiguration of the server, so if what you see on the website isn't exactly what you're in to, please inquire regardless.
  2. Just checked it over a 4th time and couldn't find anything out of place. I also notice that I don't get a status message after I die (WRECKED, STOMPED, etc.), nor does my screen get dark, only blurry.
  3. Can confirm. Server runs with Enigma enabled, gives players option to revive, but doesn't actually do anything.
  4. We've had a good amount of traffic over the last few days and have not heard of any issues with VG. Just tested it myself and was able to store and retrieve my vehicle with no issues at all.
  5. I looked into trying this but it seemed like it was more complicated than just pasting the contents of one into the other, and I'm in well over my head here.
  6. Thank you! This has got me part of the way there. I now have the hack options for both safes, and garages, however once it's started it is un-interruptable. It also doesn't begin the timer, and will never actually complete. Looked through the logs but couldn't find anything out of the ordinary.
  7. Anyone else's EXAD Safe Hack and vGarage Hack not working? I no longer get a scroll wheel option to hack either of them.
  8. In order to fix my server since the Arma update I've had to replace my ExileClient_object_player_death_startBleedingOut.sqf. Is this the end of Enigma Revive? Any plans to rework it? Or shall we wait and see what happens? In my opinion this is one of the best and most highly sought after server features and we really do appreciate your work. Thank you.
  9. The fix for this can be found here. Has anyone else noticed the inability to hack safes? I've lost the "hack" option entirely on our server. Same goes for the vGarage hack.

    Getting Kicked For No Reason?

    What an oddly specific post to copy. I wrote this months ago. You're having the exact same issue?

    Thank you man. This just seems a bit more complicated than what I was looking for. All I'm trying to do is modify the previous version that was posted in order to allow the player to control their perspective while inside a vehicle, while in combat, and not be locked to either perspective.

    I'd like to start by saying thanks to everyone here for their work. I have this implemented and working on my server and it's very slick. I've made some easy tweaks to it but I'm wondering if someone smarter than me would mind helping me customize it a little further. I love the way it functions, the only issue is that driving in 1PP on our server is very difficult. Could it be configured to always allow 3PP when inside a vic, regardless of combat or any other circumstance?

    Objects poptabs limit.

    Cen, thank you! I've implemented this on my server and it works great, however I was wondering if you could help me locate the portion of code responsible for displaying the maximum capacity of the item. My safes are still displaying the same maximum total as before, however they accept and hold about 4 times as much. I haven't been able to work out how to correct this. Thanks for any info you're able to provide.
  14. So this security flaw in Arma 3 was uncovered a couple of days ago. For the last two days we've had someone on our server taking advantage of this flaw (confirmed in logs), however we had already followed the steps to correct it which we found in that blog post the day that it was posted, yet it hasn't seemed to have done anything. Our next step will be to configure it to ban anyone who attempts to take advantage of it - past that, I'm not sure what else to do. I've placed the following within my init.sqf execVM "custom\rgb_fix.sqf"; And I've placed the following into mpmissions\\custom\rgb_fix.sqf { if(typename(profileNamespace getVariable [_x,0]) == typename "") then { profileNamespace setVariable [_x,0.4]; //--- BAN USER HERE }; } forEach ['igui_bcg_rgb_a','igui_bcg_rgb_r','igui_bcg_rgb_g','igui_bcg_rgb_b','IGUI_grid_mission_X','IGUI_grid_mission_Y','IGUI_grid_mission_W','IGUI_grid_mission_H']; Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Building is disallllowed on this server

    Has this since been removed? I don't understand - I've checked the mission file, I've checked the exile_server_config, and I can find no such option for this. I would even be happy just being able to piggy back off of the minimumDistanceToTraderZones found in the mission file by adding my own selection of map icons to it - just can't figure out how. I have a few unsafe traders scattered around my map and I'd like to be able to prohibit building in those areas.
