Changing server to Veteran mode, kill feed no longer shows

« posted: Nov 10, 2014, 06:32 AM »
Hello everyone,

I wanted to set my server to Veteran mode, so that names did not show up when you moused over a vehicle or player. When I did enable it, it seemed to stop the kill feed from showing also (player X killed player Y).

Is there a way for me to keep that kill feed and keep the server as Veteran?

Thank you,

Tokae

Depending on the startup params will depend on where the user profile file is, however for me it is stored within a folder called Users where i have defined the -profile switch.


Open your users Arma3Profile file in your favourite text editor, mine is located here: C:\Games\ArmA3\A3Profile\Users\Administrator\Administrator.Arma3Profile.

Hopefully you have a lot of stuff here inside this file, if not post back here and i will provide you with mine.

In the Veteran section of this file you will find a setting called DeathMessages, ensure this is turned on by setting it to 1.

Many thanks sir!

I would like to apologize to everyone in here if I come across as someone without knowledge. I am regarding this game and its server setup. I am reading up on this entire scripting process. I do enjoy wasteland though and I am trying to make my server as good and as refreshing (mission-wise) as possible.

So update on this:

After changing the server to Veteran and still having the kill feed, people didn't like it.

I find it sad that that people have to be able to mouse over and see everything on the server in order to enjoy it. I think it takes away from being able to hide in the game. Oh well.
