Hello!

I would like to run an ArmA II dedicated Server, but i don't get the clue. Also this Thread didn't help solving my problem:
http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=940562

I have bought the game via Steam, so i don't have the Game-DVD. I want to run the dedicated server as service on my remote server, which is running with OS Win 2003 Server.

I don't want to use my Steam-Account for the server, because i want to play on this server myself. Due to the fact that you can not be online twice with the same Steam Account at the same time, I created a new steam account for the dedicated server. But the server-tool ist not available in the Tools-Section of this account. It's also not available, if I run steam.exe with the command -applaunch 33905.

Is there any solution for my problem? Maybe I do not see the wood for the trees, but no tutorial or faq could help me until now. I don't want to leech an illegal version of the dvd.iso and I don't want to buy the game a second time :P

THX 4 help!

bb,
bow

PS: Sry for my bad english :P

ok, i have solved the problem. it is not necessary that steam is running while operating an arma2 dedicated server.

thread can be closed, thx.

you need all the game data for hosting server ... then add the arma2server.exe binary
in case of ARMA 2:OA it's arma2oaserver.exe binary
