Tophe submitted an updated version of his Arma Dedicated Server Tool.

    Quote Tophe :
    The Armed Assault series allows an amazing array of settings to freely customize dedicated servers.
    This means you will have to edit quite a few config files to get it running the way you like.
    TADST is a tool that will greatly simplify this. All you need to do is to choose the settings you like. Then the application will create all necessary files according to your settings and start the server with the appropriate arguments.

    • Fixed: Difficulty system overhaul (Thanks to Baconeo)

Optix released his Server Management/Restart Tool ARS on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    Since my arma server tends to crash randomly I decided to make a small tool to keep it alive.
    While writing it I added some other features and in the end I had a small server management tool (ARS) which can be used to maintain your server easily.
    It might be interesting for people that don't know how to script .bat files or just want a simple GUI to work with instead of .bat files.

    • Fixed several issues
    • Added the ability to create rcon more than one rcon account
    • Server admins can manage the account's permissions, such as
    • -> the ability to edit the reserved slots, kick players, ban players, restart the server, set the maximum ping, broadcast messages, remove bans, reassign players, lock/unlock the server, reload scripts/events
    • Added client RCON tool which only works with the created rcon accounts of the server application (TCP-Port Gameserver + 8 has to be opened e.g. gameserver runs on 2302, open 2310)
    • RCON account's permissions are update live, any permission change is applied instantly on the client

    Quote :
    What is ObjectOrientedScripting (OOS)?
    OOS is a new script language that will be translated to native SQF meaning that it is 100% compatible with SQF.
    It makes it possible to develop modifications in an ObjectOriented way (thats why it is callen ObjectOrientedScripting ... ok i admit ... that was too obvious :P)

    Why would we want to stop using SQF?
    Well ... its a quite complex thematic where most of it is personal choice thus i cant rly help you with this questions
    there is just one thing I can tell you; ObjectOriented Programming (in this case Scripting) has the benefit that youre (in theory) faster in developing scripts for some comparison, please read this.

Austin_medic released an updated version of his AUSMD Editing Tool on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    This tool is a combination of a few smaller programs that can help speed up some repetitive tasks by generating SQF code based on the parmeters you enter. This oculd also help by preventing you from making accidental typos and breaking the command/function you are trying to use.

    • Added junk filter for RPT Helper so you can filter out stuff that is spammed repeatedly (searches line by line)
    • Added dedicated forms to descripton.ext editor and expanded functionality.
    • Fixed bug in structured text editor with 'align' parameter doing nothing.
