New Admins ¿ How Configurate Servers Correctly?

Hi Dears

I created this section to talk about the issue of how to configure the server in the game for better gameplay for those who want to make your server

Need the attention of masters in database so that we can set a good new server, with only the most basic.
Questions
What are Files Necessary for configurate this:


1. Configurate the server properly and How Eliminate this:



;) thanks to Shinkicker for respond the Questions ;)

Admin you only need enter in the Server.cfg

This tutorial is only in the version of Pwnozor

thanks to Shinkicker for the information
Admin you only need enter in the Server.cfg and the line #65 edit this

class DayZ
{
template = You .PBO;
//template = You File in .PBO;
difficulty = "You put you difficulty here";

For example:
  • Recruit = Everything On
  • Regular = All settings disabled except 3rd-person, weapon crosshairs, friendly tags and death messages
  • Veteran = Same as Regular but with 3rd-person disabled
  • Expert = All settings off (Hardcore)
2. Spawn more Vehicules in navicat?

;) thanks to Shinkicker for respond the Questions;)

This is an easy one.

1. Go into the MySQL directory and start MySQL.bat




2. Start Navicat and select Hivemind > Functions > pMain





Change DEFAULT 11;

To the top number of vehicles you want.

So DEFAULT 50; would spawn 50, but it will not spawn higher than the amount of vehicles you have in the object_spawns table:

So if we look at my object_spawns below, you can see I have 62 vehicles:





So if I change the value to DEFAULT 62; it will spawn all 62 vehicles.

Don't forget, after changed default click 'save' on the pMain view....









3. How Show the debug mode in all players from the servers? (no more avalable for the new Version Dayz 1.7.3)

4. How Add More Channel for the chat in the server? Example: Channel global, band channel ETC...

;) thanks to Shinkicker for respond the Questions;)

In channels you only need enter in the File Called MPmissions, and next with PBO Manager link Here http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=16369

Install it.

Right click on the dayz_1_pwn_spectate_chernarus.pbo and extract to folder: \dayz_1_pwn_spectate_chernarus

you enter un folder dayz_1_pwn_spectate.chernarus and in file called description.ext in notepad++ and make the change edit the line #8. save the file.

edit this, each number defined by
disableChannels[]={0,1,2,3,4,5,6};

0 = Global
1 = Side
2 = Command
3 = Group
4 = Vehicle
5 = Direct
6 = System

Each number in the list presented can enable only removing it from the instance to use in the game server.

Right click on the folder again called dayz_1_pwn_spectate_chernarus and make it a PBO again.

Restart.

Think of PBO a bit like zip or rar.


For the Moment, this the most Frequent question in the Newbies servers of the dayz.
Not required to answer all questions with respond with an instance of that file change would be nice, but it would be nice for someone to respond properly to a better configuration.

Any input would be very well recieved.
Thanks in advance :)

OK, for your first point (see player / map marker) this is do with the server difficulty (regular, veteran, expert).

For example:

  • Recruit = Everything On
  • Regular = All settings disabled except 3rd-person, weapon crosshairs, friendly tags and death messages
  • Veteran = Same as Regular but with 3rd-person disabled
  • Expert = All settings off (Hardcore)
More can be found on this link here


For Vehicle spawns we would need to know which server you are using (Bliss? Pwnoz0r?)

Debug monitor is something that is turned on and off by each single player. Its under the game options.

Disable / Enable Voice Channels:

The following voice channels are available:

Global channel
- Everyone on server will hear you
Side channel
- Everyone in your side will hear you
Command channel
- Only group commanders can hear you
Group channel - In lobby everyone can hear you, in-game people in your group can hear you (= no one in DayZ)
Vehicle channel - Only people who are in same vehicle with you will hear you
Direct communication - Those who are near you hear voice coming from your character. Character's mouth moves when you talk. Voice fades over distance and cuts off at 80 meters. Text range is 40 meters

In the server.cfg you can then enable disable with the following variable:

disableChannels[]={x,x,x,x}
Where:


0 = Global
1 = Side
2 = Command
3 = Group
4 = Vehicle
5 = Direct
6 = System
So to disable side, command, group and system you would do as follows:

disableChannels[]={0,1,2,6}

So to disable side, command, group and system you would do as follows:
I Use the Pwnozor Server man,


Ok, I Agree for you, but now with the Spectate Tools For admins of the Pawnozor I can´t Enable the Chat, Channels


I'M trying but does not allow me do it, Check my example



The Error is this: File mpmissions\_cur_mp.chernarus\spect\common.hpp, line 0;
'-nclude':""encountered instead of '='

that's when I try to enable the Global channel or channel Side

disableChannels[]={0,2,6};
disableChannels[]={1,2,6};

The problem is that you're trying to open a PBO package file in notepad++ you can't do that.

Download the following:

http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=16369

Install it.

Right click on the dayz_1_pwn_spectate_chernarus.pbo and extract to folder: \dayz_1_pwn_spectate_chernarus

Go into the folder and open common.hpp in notepad++ and make the change. save the file.

Right click on the folder again called dayz_1_pwn_spectate_chernarus and make it a PBO again.

Restart.

Think of PBO a bit like zip or rar.

I'm looking for the line disableChannels instance [] = {x, x, x, x} but I can find the editing on communication in the server that is what I need, so that players can communicate with both the = {0.1, x, x} but I can not find it.

know that line is? or file? because I indicated in common.hpp but failed display


But Thanks for help Shinkicker, I have enumerated you answer to each quiestion in the top
 
MPMissions\dayz_1.Chernarus\description.ext

Line 8:

Code:
disableChannels[]={0,1,2,6};

Thanks Shinkicker, Worked wonderfully, did not know he had to unpack, now I clarifies many doubts, but thanks, I hope to learn more so you can bring on anything with the knowledge you gain from here on out but thanks!

Now what remains to know is how to spawn vehicles

pMain is blank .... everything works however
in pMain Paste this code


BEGIN

DECLARE iSpawnNumVeh SMALLIT (3) DEFAULT 11;

CALL pCleanup();
CALL pFixMaxNum;

SELECT SUM(MaxNum) FROM object_calsses INTO @iMaxNumTotal;
IF (iSpawnNumVeh > @iMaxNumTotal) THEN
SET iSpawnNumVeh = @iMaxNumTotal;
END IF;

WHILE (fGetVehCount() < iSpaswnNumVeh) DO
CALL pSpawn ();
END WHILE;

END

Next save file and restart and done.

Can you post your object_spawns and object_classes to pastebin. You can use the expert wizard (comma separated) to get hold of them.
