The Epoch team have recently released the server & client files for their Epoch mod for Arma 3. It's early stages yet but many seem to be enjoying themselves with it.
Well, the people who know what the hell their doing are enjoying themselves, nubs like me are struggling.
I've got the Redis DB started, the server starts and once I launch the game I can see (in LAN) my server. Select join takes me to a screen (satellite view of Stratis) that's where everything stops. The RPT log shows....
"Server error: Player without identity"
...about a million times.
I really am at a loss here. It could be not talking to the database is the problem, I really don't know.
Is anyone else mucking around with this and having better luck?
Although it didn't make a difference. I noticed a new post yesterday on the Epoch forums which went into much more detail about installing it than did the "install.txt" file so I'll have a closer look at some point.
Well, finally got everything working a few days ago. Epoch v2.5.2 on Arma 3 v1.36
The graphics engine is very pretty although I am struggling a little on my older rig (Q9650 @4.2GHz + GTX 780 <- recent addition) with some laggy moments. There are some neat building options to make a base.
It's very early days but everything runs without fault but there's not much to do other than explore and try to survive - there is food and water but you need to look for it. Vehicles are there, I think that's a "Hunter" I have in the picture.
I added in some missions which are working well. I found a Little Bird but a word to the wise - the controls are not the same as Arma 2 - "Q" isn't power, but rotate left. Into the ground and a resulting fireball as it turns out...
