[How To] Make a ARMA3 (Alpha) Dedicated Server

does anyone know how to alter the lobby timeout between missions, on our server we are having an issue that the lobby timeout is 9000 seconds... we need to lower it to about 1 minute.

any tips?
 
Can't seem to get the server name to accept. I can log in as an admin on my server, but the server name is just my Full Computer Name. Also, the server won't load a mission until a player selects one nor will the mission stay persistent when I log off. Just stops the mission when I jump back to the lobby. Any ideas? Followed the tutorial by the letter.

In his batch file, his config points to a file
Code:
-config=cfg\cfg.cfg
Which it needs to point to -config=cfg\config.cfg... basically it's creating it's own cfg.

Try this in your CFG file:

Code:
// GLOBAL SETTINGS
hostname        = "ADD YOUR SERVER NAME HERE";  // As seen in the Gemspy Browser
password        = "PasswordToGetOnTheServer";    // Comment out if no password required
passwordAdmin    = "AdminLoginPassword";          // Password to become server admin.
reportingIP    = "arma3pc.master.gamespy.com";
 
// WELCOME MESSAGE ("message of the day")
// It can be several lines, separated by comma
// Empty messages "" will not be displayed at all but are only for increasing the interval
 
motd[] = {
 
    "whatever you want to say to guests as they log on",
    "",
    "and some more lines",
    "",
    ""
};
motdInterval = 5;              // Time interval (in seconds) between each message
 
// JOINING RULES
 
maxPlayers        = 30;    // Maximum amount of players.
 
// VOTING
voteMissionPlayers    = 1;    // Tells the server how many people must connect so that it displays the mission selection screen.
voteThreshold            = 0.33; // 33% or more players need to vote for something, for example an admin, new map
 
// INGAME SETTINGS
disableVoN            = 0;    // If set to 1, Voice over Net will not be available
vonCodecQuality        = 8;    // Quality from 1 to 10
persistent            = 1;    // If 1, missions still runs on even after the last player disconnected.

Anyone know where the server RPT file is?
Go into your folder where your server.cfg is stored. For example, mine is: "cfgdayz\arma2server.RPT".

Clientside RPT is in your "Appdata\Local\ArmA 3 Alpha\arma3_[datestamp].RPT".

I have also updated the startup line of code since in the new development build have the dedicated server executable inside of it.
