Hosting a Server (Rental Service Providers)

You can alternatively host a server at a Game Server Hosting Provider.

Your server will be started instantly!

How to Create

To start a reforger server in Windows, create bat file (“start.bat”) in your reforger folder (e.g. S:\Games\ArmaReforger\) and right click “Edit”. Add this:

cd S:\Games\ArmaReforger\ start /wait /REALTIME ArmaReforgerServer.exe -config "S:\Games\ArmaReforger\server.json" -profile ArmaReforgerServer

Now create a new file called “server.json” in the same folder and change the entries highlighted:

 "dedicatedServerId": "ar-gm-%profilename", "region": "EU", "gameHostBindAddress": "YOUR SERVER IP", "gameHostBindPort": 2001, "gameHostRegisterBindAddress": "YOUR SERVER IP", "gameHostRegisterPort": 2001, "adminPassword" : "YOUR ADMIN PASSWORD", "game":  "name": "YOUR SERVER NAME", "scenarioId": "59AD59368755F41AMissions/21_GM_Eden.conf", "playerCountLimit": 16, "visible": true, "password" : "YOUR SERVER PASSWORD maybe?", "gameMode": "", "supportedGameClientTypes": [ "PLATFORM_PC" ], "gameProperties":  "serverMaxViewDistance": 1600, "battleEye": true, "fastValidation": true , "mods": [ ]  

Now start the server with double click on start.bat. You should add UDP port 2001 to your firewall (both ways).
