Hey Guys,

I recent rented a server and got everything running smooth, Now i want to get AIs added.
I watched the instruction video but im getting confused ( New to do anything with servers - Willing Learn)
All the files that the server has are online - I tryd to follow the direct but no AI spawn. It looks like they provide everything i need online but not sure if i have to adjust folder names & locations.

Is anyone Fimilair with Vilayer Server Setup ??

Looking for someone to help get me though this process. I can do teamspeak, Email, Skype - Im willing to pay for your time as well

Just looking to have a fun weekend warrior sever.

Thanks in Advance
Robert

Does this mean the ai spawned or do i have another set of problems

There's no mention of DZAI in your log, which means that you didn't edit your server_monitor.sqf with the call compile line for DZAI.

Same thing with the previous RPT log - there's no mention of DZAI in the log, which means the server_monitor.sqf was not made properly.

The two types of problems I've seen:

1. dzai_initserver.sqf not found error: means you made the server_monitor.sqf edit correctly, but the DZAI folder was placed in the wrong location
2. No mention of DZAI in the log: means that the server_monitor.sqf edit was not done, so the server is never instructed to load DZAI files

Thanks for looking at it buttface - Gonna give it another go tomorrow.
I think it has to do with Vilayer Hosting - When i restart the server from the control panel I think it recreates the File & Then Doesnt use the one That i adjusted.

For some reason im only able to join the server once then I have to give it a quick restart for it to full load. The second login it gets stuck at the very last load screen & I can hear noise but not video. gonna try to reinstall everything one more time.

I think the main problem is with Vilayer they host the server thought a online portal - I can Download the .pbo File but I cant Change it ( I Use PBO Manager on the downloaded file but this wont do anything until i can upload it correctly) . I try to deleted it ( Being Used by Another Process) - I upload the New .pbo with a diffrent name but it wont work because it has a different name.
Maybe im going in the wrong direction

Check if your server hoster expects you to add your custom files to an unpacked version of the server pbo. I remember some users saying that a certain server hoster (don't remember which) automatically repacks the server pbo on each server start. If this is the case with Vilayer then it's probably replacing your modified server pbo on startup.

Disclaimer: I know nothing about server hosters, just something I thought could be useful.

The Vilayer setup doesnt allow you to edit the pbo's directly. Your pbos are already unpacked in a folder called vilayercustomcode and that is where you make your changes. Then when you restart your server it packs those unpacked files into the pbo. Some say thats easier, I disagree. it does have the benefit that you dont have to stop your server to edit the files and they will be automatically updated at restart.
What it does do, most definately, is confuse new admins who are told to get their pbo and unpack it.

You are using Epoch or Overpoch. This is a 'bug' where its waiting for the loadingscreen to finish loading.
Alexlawson posted the answer here

In sheeps repack he placed the endloadingscreen right in the init.sqf .. look at this file for comparison

Your second log sample has a "dzai_initserver.sqf not found" error but DZAI continues to load normally lower down, so you've possibly added the "call" line for DZAI twice somewhere, but one of them is working so it's not a serious issue.
