iniDB Arma 3 wasteland server.

Hello.

I have a server hosted with Vilayer, and i'm trying to install the INIDB to backup player data etc. But i'm not sure how to install this, it says " Then in your mission init.sqf, somewhere before you want to use the functions do this
Code:
call compile preProcessFile "\iniDB\init.sqf";
but that's it. i added this code at the bottom of the mission sqf file thinking that what this means. Also i will have to add the commandline in vilayer which i understand a bit but not fully.

Cheers.
Ashleigh.

1. wrong forum i guess... you should read this -> LINK
2. i tried to get this working on wasteland on arma2... yeah what should i say...
i had to add arma2net too to get this working... but (for me) it only saves the stats until the next server restart... then all is gone again...

the wasteland mod which supports db saving is much more complex than this inidb addon...

1. copy the @inidb folder into your game install folder
2. add this line to your init.sqf
Code:
call compile preProcessFile "\iniDB\init.sqf";
3. add this to your sartparameter
Code:
-mod=@iniDB;

its all written in the description...
but remember that your players have to download most of the files too (except serverside addons) to be able to connect...

ok update :cool:
have an A3Wasteland running now too...
with base and player saving enabled...

check out www.a3wasteland.com and get the files from there...
for basesave you need inidb

you only need to enable it in the config.sqf
Code:
// Is player saving enabled?
config_player_saving_enabled = compileFinal "1";
and in the main_config.sqf
Code:
A3W_baseSaving = 1;          // Save base objects between restarts (0 = no, 1 = yes) - requires iniDB mod
nothing else needs to be added so far... like the line in your first post... its all included already...

and dont forget the startparameter if you are using inidb
Code:
-mod=@iniDB;
thats it...
have phun :cool:
 
Hello

I have done what you said, when i load in game find a weapon, disconnect, and reconnect it doesn't save. But it does say,

Code:
"loading player account"
"player account loaded"
Or something along those lines.

So i think its working just not saving, is that how its meant to be?

Valued Member!
in the folder @inidb\db you should find some extra files after a successful save

ini files with the guid as filename for the single players who were saved
with content like this for example
Code:
Health="0.25"
Side="WEST"
Account Name="NewWee"
cannedfood="2"
water="2"
energydrink="0"
jerrycanempty="0"
jerrycanfull="0"
syphonhose="0"
repairkit="0"
spawnbeacon="0"
camonet="0"
warchest="0"
Vest="V_PlateCarrier1_rgr"
Uniform="U_B_CombatUniform_mcam"
Backpack="B_AssaultPack_rgr"
Goggles=""
HeadGear="H_HelmetB"
Position="[10017.1,19712,0.0269318]"
Direction="126.893"
PrimaryWeapon="arifle_Mk20C_F"
PrimaryWeaponItems="["","",""]"
SecondaryWeapon=""
SecondaryWeaponItems="[]"
HandgunWeapon="hgun_ACPC2_F"
HandgunItems="["","",""]"
Items="["arifle_Mk20C_F","arifle_Mk20C_F"]"
AssignedItems="["ItemMap","ItemCompass","ItemWatch","ItemRadio"]"
MagazinesWithAmmoCount="[["9Rnd_45ACP_Mag",9],["9Rnd_45ACP_Mag",9],["9Rnd_45ACP_Mag",9],["30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag",30],["30Rnd_556x45_Stanag",30],["30Rnd_556x45_Stanag",30],["30Rnd_556x45_Stanag",30],["30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag",30],["30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag",30],["30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag",30],["30Rnd_65x39_caseless_mag",30],["30Rnd_556x45_Stanag",30],["9Rnd_45ACP_Mag",9]]"
and one anyObjects.ini file with the saved basebuilding parts
for example
Code:
[Count]
Count="0"
[obj0]
classname="Land_CncWall4_F"
pos="[14261.9,12987.6,6.24447]"
dir="[[0.0139561,-0.99875,0.0479958],[-0.0039954,0.0479444,0.998842]]"
supplyleft="0"
[obj1]
classname="Land_CncWall4_F"
pos="[14266.8,12989.2,5.9312]"
dir="[[0.55996,-0.828519,0],[0,0,1]]"
supplyleft="0"
when you are reconnecting... are you choosing the same team like before?
i know there may be some problems if you change the team after reconnect and the gear will be wiped then...

do you also have inidb installed and called in your startparameters?
 
Thank you Gagi2 for your response.
I have this is my Launch Parameters:
-mod=@inidbi;
This is the folder in my ArmA3 Directory
@inidbi
This is version 1.4 from code34
When I use this error box says "the inidbi.pbo needs to be signed to be able to work"

inidb != inidbi
im not 100% sure about this but if you use the inidbi you will need to change the calls in all the files too
from inidb to inidbi...

so just give it a try with the inidb version 1.0
or try to edit all the calls of inidb to inidbi
 
Hello All,
Hmmm well, I've been trying to get this to work for a good 4 hrs now and still no luck.I've only had my server for 3 days now and I can say it has been good just to look through the file structure and see what goes where from where.
One thing I did notice was the externalConfigFolder= "A3Wasteland_settings"; for the life of me I could not find this file anywhere.After a quick search I found that the files that were in the server package from Vilayer were from an older version of GoT_Wasteland that I was running.

ex. GoT_Wasteland-config.sqf
// GoT Wasteland v2.3 config-file
// You will need to shutdown the server to edit settings in this file!
// To enable base-saving your server NEEDS to run with the @iniDB mod!
// By: JoSchaap (26-7-2013)

GoT_buildingsloot = 1; // set to 0 to disable loot in buildings from spawning
GoT_nightTime = 0; // set to 1 to have the mission start on evening instead of morning
GoT_baseSaving = 1; // set to 1 to enable base-saving (iniDB addon required)
PDB_ServerID = "any"; // iniDB prefix for base filenames - if running multiple servers, set a different value for each one!

so I swapped this out for main_config.sqf from the A3Wasteland Git and made the changes to this line:

ex. main_config.sqf
A3W_buildingLoot = 1; // Loot inside buildings (0 = no, 1 = yes)
A3W_startHour = 6; // In-game hour at mission start (0 to 23)
A3W_moonLight = 1; // Moon light during night (0 = no, 1 = yes)
A3W_baseSaving = 1; // Save base objects between restarts (0 = no, 1 = yes) - requires iniDB mod
A3W_missionsDifficulty = 0; // Missions difficulty (0 = normal, 1 = hard)
A3W_sideMissions = 1; // Side missions (0 = no, 1 = yes)
A3W_serverSpawning = 1; // Vehicle, object, and loot spawning (0 = no, 1 = yes)

After finding the GoT version of some of the files I wondered if there was any more of the old files in the server package from Vilayer.
The search continues.....

@Gagi2,
I tried both versions of inidbi & inidb could not get either to work for me :(
I am convinced it is something simple that I am overlooking. Trial and error
As soon as I change this line:
// Is player saving enabled?
config_player_saving_enabled = compileFinal "1"; //from "0" to "1"
that's when I get the hang at
"loading player account..." but then it goes to "Welcome to A3Wasteland Please wait for client to initialize"
db files are empty

Question. Are you using Vilayer for your A3 server?
Thnx

Valued Member!
im hosting all of my servers on my own dedicated server
you need the extra folder as well located in your root arma3 directory...
but it seems your files are not the right ones...

so please check it out on a3wasteland.com and get actual and complete files... and you should be able to set it up without any problems so far...
