    Accurate Restart Time Calculator

    As promised I'm releasing something i made a couple of weeks back that I found more effective then the "dll required" restart timers. Now, I won't be giving you a restart timer but I will show you how the code can be applied. Oh, and this requires extDB3 but can be modified for extDB2 I suppose or you might be able to use the original that comes with ExiLe. Override "ExileServer_system_database_connect.sqf" and find ExileServerStartTime = (parseSimpleArray ("extDB3" callExtension "9:LOCAL_TIME")) select 1; then after this line add publicVariable "ExileServerStartTime"; Save the file. Now go to where your restart timer is configured. Add this somewhere before where it checks the hour-startHour or whatever. _aOn = [0,3,6,9,12,15,18,21,24]; // Military Time startHour = ExileServerStartTime select 3; startMinute = ExileServerStartTime select 4; startSecond = ExileServerStartTime select 5; correcto = []; { if(startHour < _x and startHour != 24) then { correcto pushBack _x; }; } forEach _aOn; Now the correct amount of hours can be determined by ((correcto select 0) - startHour) and wala! You have a fully working exact restart timer. SO how the hell do you actually use this? Heres an ExAD example config that utilizes this. Config times here: Replace the old function with this: And heres someone elses statusbar utilizing this.
  2. Hi all, I am currently setting up restarts for my server. Whenever I close the server either manually or via restart timer using infistar the server closes and then says it has stopped working resulting in my autorestart.bat not to work because it sees the server still running. This server is dedicated on Windows server 2008 R2 Any ideas on what i can do to get the server to full close without this windows error popup? Also when i do close the error message my restartbat works fine. Here is my restart bat @echo off color 0a title Mainline Exile Altis restarter C:\Windows\System32\mode con cols=50 lines=3 >nul set /a var=0 :start echo Running Server start "" /wait /realtime /affinity F "arma3server.exe" -port=2302 "-config=C:\GAME SERVERS\ARMA 3\TADST\default\TADST_config.cfg" "-cfg=C:\GAME SERVERS\ARMA 3\TADST\default\TADST_basic.cfg" "-profiles=C:\GAME SERVERS\ARMA 3\TADST\default" -name=default -filePatching "-mod=@CBA_A3;@Exile;@ExileServer;@infiSTAR_Exile;@NIArms All in One;@NIArms All in One - RHS Compatibility;@RHSAFRF;@RHSGREF;@RHSSAF;@RHSUSAF;Curator;Heli;Jets;Kart;Mark;Orange;Tacops;Tank" -autoInit -enableHT set /a var+=1 cls echo Server has shutdown %var% times, restarting goto start Thank you in Advance!
  3. Description If you are looking for a solution to start / restart your server in windows here's a quick and easy way to do it. I have a .bat file that will start my exile server and keep it up when it crashes or restarts. In order for this to work you need to change a file in exile_server.pbo. You can of course use the overwrite in the mission file config for an easier implementation. The code that was added will shutdown your server after the restart messages. The bat will pickup on the fact that the server process no longer exists and will start it again. How to install Download the updated file from here Unpack your mission file and make a new folder called "restart" there and add ExileServer_system_rcon_thread_check.sqf in there. Next open your config.cpp from your mission and go to CfgExileCustomCode and add it there class CfgExileCustomCode { ExileServer_system_rcon_thread_check = "restart\ExileServer_system_rcon_thread_check.sqf"; ... other stuff here ... }My arma3server.exe is located in T:\Arma3\A3Master My .bat file is located in T:\Arma3 If you place your .bat next to your arma3server.exe you need to remove the 'cd A3Master' part from it. @echo off cls set version=0.9.19 set wat=Arma3 Exile title %wat% Watchdog cd A3Master :watchdog echo (%time%) %wat% started. start "Exile" /wait /high "arma3server.exe" -port=2302 "-serverMod=@ExileServer;@marma" "-mod=@Exile;" "-config=@ExileServer\config.cfg" "-cfg=@ExileServer\basic.cfg" -profiles=config_exile -name=exile -malloc=tbbmalloc -autoinit -enableHT echo (%time%) %wat% closed or crashed, restarting. goto watchdog

    Restart Timer (Forum)

    Hello guys. I have a simple question is there a way to add a counter that counts time till next server restart? I'm running my IPB forum, and there is a way to add scripts to the side boxes, so I was thinking that would be so useful if you could see on the forum when server is restarting to decide whether to connect now, or just wait till restart. Looking forward to see what you think guys

    Server haut fehlermeldungen raus

    Hallo, ich habe das Problem das der Server viele fehlermeldungen raushaut. Ich habe den Ursprung gefunden und zwar habe ich Fahrzeuge auf der karte platziert und diese sind auf der Mission.sqm und werden dem nach nicht per Skript gespawnt. Ich habe die Fahrzeuge als Simpler Gegenstand eingefügt weil sie nur als Deko beim Trader rumstehen sollen. Bei jedem Fahrzeug wird die Fehlermeldung ausgegeben. Der Server startet ganz normal manuell aber anscheinend nicht per Autorestart neu. Gibt es eine möglichkeit die Fahrzeuge auf die Karte zu bekommen ohne die ganzen Fehlermeldungen? Wenn ich die per Skript Spawnen lasse sind sie offen, man kann damit wegfahren und sie verkaufen. Was ja nun mal nicht der sinn von Deko ist. Hier mal die Fehlermeldungen. Und das wird für jedes fahrzeug rausgehauen. Ich habe ca. 20 fahrzeuge auf der Karte, man kann sich vorstellen das das viele meldungen sind und das auch den server zum laggen bringt. Kann es sein das der Server deswegen nicht automatisch restartet?

    Server nach restart locken?

    Hi und zwar wollt ich mal fragen wie man den Server nach restart locken kann für zsbp 5 Minuten.. ich habe öfter das Problem das einige spieler zu geil auf arma sind und Sekunden nach restart joinen.. dann hängt sich der Server auf und zeigt Probleme wie nicht einsteigen in Fahrzeuge/speichert keine aktuellen Daten/teilweiße kann man nichtmal ins Inventar gehen... jetzt reichts mir und ich wollt ihn locken.. im infistar finde ich aber nur lock before restart nicht after.. hat da wer ne Idee?
  12. I couldn't get the built in auto restart to work nor any of the other user provided scripts so I pieced together one that works for me. It may or may not work for you but I figured I would share since this is a modding community. You can probably clean up the code since I am far from a programmer. With this batch file you can - Set the restart time down to the second It tells you when your server started and when it is going to restart automatically It tells you if/when your server crashed and restarts it for you Time stamps everything so you know when everything happened No need for BEC or anything else third party, just PowerShell and my server came with it Checks on your server every 3 seconds and restarts when needed Timer restarts if your server crashes This screenshot shows it running at 1 minute intervals to test and display the status messages. I killed the process manually to test the process checker and restart. Then I let it run for the 1 minute and you can see it notifies you that it is time for a restart and does so without user interaction. Usage - Set your restart timer (below is for 4 hour restarts) set hours="4" set minutes="0" set seconds="0" Set your launch parameters and folder paths REM // Launch parameters start "Exile" /high "arma3server.exe" -port=2302 "-config=@ExileServer\config.cfg" "-cfg=@ExileServer\basic.cfg" "-profiles=config_exile" -name=Exile "-servermod=@ExileServer;" "-mod=@Exile;" -malloc=tbbmalloc -autoinit -enableHT Run the batch file. Place the batch file in the same folder as arma3server.exe The Batch File (save as auto_restart.bat or anothername.bat) @echo off cls set gameserver=Arma Exile title %gameserver% Auto Restart / Process Checker :start REM How long until auto restart? set hours="4" set minutes="0" set seconds="0" REM // Launch parameters start "Exile" /high "arma3server.exe" -port=2302 "-config=@ExileServer\config.cfg" "-cfg=@ExileServer\basic.cfg" "-profiles=config_exile" -name=Exile "-servermod=@ExileServer;" "-mod=@Exile;" -malloc=tbbmalloc -autoinit -enableHT REM //////// You do not need to update anything else below this line //////// REM Pull, display and create some time functions for /f "delims=" %%G IN ('powershell "(get-date %time%).AddHours(%hours%).AddMinutes(%minutes%).AddSeconds(%seconds%).ToString('yyyyMMddHHmmss')"') do set endtime=%%G for /f "delims=" %%G IN ('powershell "(get-date %time%).ToString('HH:mm:ss')"') do set nowtimeclean=%%G for /f "delims=" %%G IN ('powershell "(get-date %time%).AddHours(%hours%).AddMinutes(%minutes%).AddSeconds(%seconds%).ToString('HH:mm:ss')"') do set endtimeclean=%%G echo %time% - %gameserver% Server started at %nowtimeclean% and will restart at %endtimeclean% :checkarma for /f "delims=" %%G IN ('powershell "(get-date %time%).ToString('yyyyMMddHHmmss')"') do set nowtime=%%G REM ////////// TIMER CHECK /////////// if "%nowtime%" gtr "%endtime%" ( echo %time% - It is time to restart %gameserver%! echo. echo. goto restartarma ) REM ////////// END TIMER CHECK /////////// REM ////////// PROCESS CHECK /////////// tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq arma3server.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "arma3server.exe">NUL if "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="1" ( echo %time% - The process is not running, restart %gameserver%! echo. echo. goto restartarma ) REM ////////// END PROCESS CHECK /////////// REM restart not needed.

    Infistar Time to restart

    Hi i wonder if it is possible to create a public value that is the time until next restart in server time ( time since start of server) that way i can edit exile and ExAd statusbar to show correct time even if worked with the server.
  14. So i saw some people still have issues getting a proper automatic restart batch file so im sharing mine. I created this one with the work from @tinboye which can be found at: It uses the same system to update the mods and server. Just created a batch file that automatically restarts the server and can update the server and if needed runs a separate file to update the mods and keys. Edit: Currently it's set to check for updates every [6] restarts, if you have set it to automatically shutdown after 4 hours it will mean it checks everyday for updates... Download at: Here Readme is inside.
  15. Ok, so after some time away, I've come back to arma 3 for some exile and zombie action. So I went ahead and started with a fresh rebuild of my old server, got exile working, the RZ&D, adv. towing, DMS, and finally infiSTAR. Initially, it was working fine, but then as one of the final adjustments I set up the infiSTAR restart system using the fixed time array. The server runs fine, everything works great - until the restart, which ends at the following point in the process per the logs: stderr from the point of restart initialization: stdout: Note the partial line output where the server crashes. I imagine this is a threaded operation, and not completely relevant. Potential stderr anomalies or useful info from initial launch: System Information: I can provide additional snippets if requested. As a general rule and for fairly obvious reasons, I'll only post infiSTAR snippets if asked for by Christian. As a professional developer, I'm all too familiar with the, "It's not my code, it's your implementation" defense, and I'm plenty willing to concede that point if it's actually the cause. That said, everything seemed perfectly fine until I implemented the restart system. That is - no 'unusual' warning/error messages in the complete error log (see above). ArmA scripting isn't my day job though, so here's hoping you folks can spot something I overlooked. Thanks in advance for any assistance. -TCM UPDATE#1: ANY combination of restart/shutdown whether timer or time-based produces this same 'String id' error followed by server crash. UPDATE#2: I decided to try eliminating other mods as the cause of the issue by setting up a vanilla exile server with infiSTAR only. Interestingly - it too produces the exact same string id error. I'll try Exile only and send it a shutdown command without using infiSTAR to see how it behaves.

    InfiStar do not restart the server

    Hello, I have a problem with Infistar It stops well the server (with 40 minutes of delay). But never restart him. Here are my log and my files. Here are my log and my files. EXILE_AHAT_CONFIG: Log R PT: It seems to me that there is a problem with DB, but I am not on. Here is my Exile.ini : I really hope someone can help us. Thanks in advance !
  17. Is BEC the only option for sending restart warnings for restart schedules? Every other option I've found seems to be based on server up-time.

    [Release] Arma Restart Plus

    Arma Restart Plus Summary: This tool was designed with being extremely light weight, and having the ability to monitor the server. I specifically designed this tool because I want my server to restart a certain way, as in, I wanted the server to have one restart be fully night. This was fairly easy in other mods, allowing you to control time with in the .bat itself, but in this is is stuck behind a pbo file. So I got creative and made a application that allowed me to on board different pbos files if needed. It also won't let the Arma server fail. If the application for any reason quits, it will open it back up. So as long as you server is stable, this application won't let it fail. Installation: This part is a little bit of a problem, the current version has no settings to adjust, so if you'd like to make this work, you'll have to change the source code provided. I provided the whole file on my github (.rar). Github Link: Notes: This is my first release so be polite please Also ill continue to update this thread when I add more features!

  22. I just added the Extended Base Mod to my server and i noticed that the doors aren't opening after restarting the server. I know there is a thread on the forums with a fix for this bug (the one below). I have tried using the method in the thread below but without success. I hope someone can help me out. Im using a dedicated ubuntu 16.04 server if that helps. (Thread that i was talking about: )

    NTP-server for time

    Hello I have a question regarding the restarts of a Exile server. Let´s say that we restart the server manually in between regular restart. How can you tell the server that the shutdown timer to consider the real time? As of now the visual countdown resets after every restart ex 3 H. But in the background the server will restart at time X. Or is just me who has missed something?

    RHS Gear Disappearing on restart

    I have an issue where about 1/4 of the content from RHS USAF and AFAF are disappearing on restart, or death and revive. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of where to look for the cause or has had experience with this issue and has resolved. i've heard of this happening with CUP however the answers on that thread seemed to lean towards an issue with the developers. as i have not really seen complaints about RHS content i was wondering if anyone running RHS has theirs running correctly. for now i simply have the gear removed, a temporary solution as i am more determined to get this fixed

    infiSTAR restart warnings

    Everything in infiSTAR v0074 works just fine except for restart warnings and there's nothing I can see in the .rpt. My intention is to have the server restarted by the scheduler in my game panel, which works just fine, and to have infiSTAR to give players warning beforehand, which doesn't. In the end I set infiSTAR up to restart the server in the hope that it would fix the warnings part. It didn't. Here's the relevent part of EXILE_AHAT_CONFIG.hpp - can someone take a look at this and tell me if I messed something up? I should mention that the end of each session's .rpt shows infiSTAR restarting the server, so that part works OK. But there's nothing for the previous half hour to show it trying/failing to give the warnings.
