Arma 3 Restarter.exe server monitor [ALPHA]

by
thevisad


Description:
This restarter.exe (same as in the DayZ hive) has been modified to allow usage with Arma 3. I have given some examples of the usage of it in the INI file and included a txt file as well. All three are required to run multiple Arma 3 servers. This will allow you to run a server without steam caausing an issue and kicking the server since it's already running.


Features:
  • Server/Client supported config options:
      - noSound ( automatic setting )
      - nosplash ( automatic setting )
      - maxMem ( max system memory to use )
      - exThreads ( base 0 number of threads )
      - cpuCount ( number of cpus in machine )
      - name ( profile name )
      - profiles ( profile path )
      - cfg ( basic config path\filename )
      - config ( config path\filename )
      - mod ( @Gigha )
      - world ( stratis, your world, etc)
      - ip (ip address)
      - port (port number)
      - netlog (true\false)
      - server ( client\server )
      - filepatching ( true\false ) NOTE true enables switch -noFilePatching
      - initthis ( init on loading )
  • Client Supported Options
      - connectip ( servers ip )
      - connectport (servers port )
      - password ( servers password )
  • Server Supported Options
      - rankingfile ( ranking file path\filename )
      - Supported config options


Usage:
I have given some examples of the usage of it in the INI file and included a txt file as well. All three are required to run multiple Arma 3 servers.

I included a required registry fix for Arma 3 crashing as well. When Arma 3 crashes this pops up the "This app has crashed" dialog box. This will prevent the restarter tool from properly restarting the server as needed. Run this registry file and it will remove this allowing the application to crash completely and retarter to work its magic.

Included in the package is a steam_app.txt file. This file is required to be able to run multiple servers at the same time. Without this you can only run 1 server.

Server/Client supported config options:
noSound ( automatic setting )
nosplash ( automatic setting )
maxMem ( max system memory to use )
exThreads ( base 0 number of threads )
cpuCount ( number of cpus in machine )
name ( profile name )
profiles ( profile path )
cfg ( basic config path\filename )
config ( config path\filename )
mod ( @Gigha )
world ( stratis, your world, etc)
ip (ip address)
port (port number)
netlog (true\false)
server ( client\server )
filepatching ( true\false ) NOTE true enables switch -noFilePatching
initthis ( init on loading )

Client Supported Options:
connectip ( servers ip )
connectport (servers port )
password ( servers password )

Server Supported Options:
rankingfile ( ranking file path\filename )

Sample Config File:

world=stratis
port=2326
cpuCount=2
exThreads=7
netlog=true
server=server
filepatching=false
rankingfile=hngamers_1.stratis\ranking.log

[hngamers_2_stratis]
name=RealityHC

cpuCount=2
exThreads=7
netlog=false
server=client
connectip=127.0.0.1

Changelog:
v30-04-2013
- it now supports Arma 2 and Arma 3. It will detect if there is a dedicated server present in the case of Arma 3 or the beta server in the case of Arma 2. If these do not exist it will fall back to the game exe and use the -server command to run a server. In the case of a -client switch being used, it will auto fall back to the proper game exe and run the headless client based on this.

v18-03-2013
- Corrected the issue with the client connections
- new settings

v15-03-2013
- this contains a revert option to remove the error handling registry key.
