Alive Plugin could not be loaded

  1. 4 months ago

    Morning all,

    Back again with a new server and a new issue, for some reason on my server, it really does not want to load the alive plugin and is giving various errors.

    I have tried a fresh install of both alive and aliveserver and still get the same issues, I was briefly able to check the settings on the alive war room but the website is very hit and miss for me, I get stuck on an infinite initialisation screen and can't navigate the site at all. With the website not working, I can not edit any of my server details or redownload the alive.cfg.

    As far as I can tell, the rest of alive is loading fine but since the plugin is no longer loading, I can not save the mission nor does player persistence work.

    This is a paste of the RPT:

    This is my server startup parameters:

    @echo off
    
    start d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Main\Main_Server.exe "-profiles=d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Main" -port=2302 "-config=d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Configs\Main_Server_Config.cfg" -world=empty -enableHT "-mod=d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@aliveserver;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CBA_A3;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@ace;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@SplendidSmoke;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@EnhancedMovement;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@isladuala_a3;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@ALiVE;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@RHSUSAF;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CUP_Terrains_Core;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CUP_Units;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CUP_Vehicles;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CUP_Weapons;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@ACE_Compat_RHS_usf3;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CUP_Vehicles_ACE_compat;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@CUP_Weapons_ACE_compat;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@Achilles;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@AdvancedTowing;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@AdvancedSlingLoading;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@AdvancedRappelling;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@10th_MEU_Loadouts;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@task_force_radio;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@F-16;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@FIR_AWS;d:\Games\ArmA3\A3Files\Mods\@AdvancedUrbanRappelling;"

    If you need more data then let me know,

    Is your new server running Windows? If so make sure to 'unblock' the alive server .dll files (right-click, Properties)

    They should already be unblocked, that's the first thing I checked. I will double check though

    Edit: Both .dll's are unblocked

    OK I've been away from Arma for a bit but will try to guess... I know you're not new to ALiVE but please bear with me if the questions seem silly :)

    • .dll files are in their proper locations? (I believe this is in the root of @aliveserver but the War Room setup instructions will confirm this.. for some reason I can't login to WR at the moment).
    • you are using the 64bit alive plugin with the 64bit A3 server .exe?

    Yes I just double checked and did a fresh download of the .exe just to make sure and they both are correct.

    I did previously have the @aliveserver files in a seperate folder, moved them back into the server files and that did not fix it either, I am still getting the same issue

  6. @aliveserver gets loaded just like any other mod, and only on the server. Is that how you’re using it? Example:

    Client(s) = @CBA,@ALiVE

    Server = @CBA,@ALiVE,@aliveserver

  7. @HeroesandvillainsOS @aliveserver gets loaded just like any other mod, and only on the server. Is that how you’re using it? Example:

    Client(s) = @CBA,@ALiVE

    Server = @CBA,@ALiVE,@aliveserver

    No clients are loading the @aliveserver mod, it is only on the server.

    As for loading the mod on the server, I have used "-mod=@alivesever;" and "-servermod=@aliveserver;"

    It did work not too long ago which is the odd thing, it has O lying recently stopped working, I'm wondering if it's a mod conflict or something

  8. So I did a quick test,

    I only loaded Alive, CBA_A3 and Alive Server on the server, played a default alive mission and still got the same issue. I moved the Aliveserver mod into the main a3 directory and nothing seemed to fix it.

    I still cant get on the alive website to download a new version of the plugins or check any of the server info.

    What did manage to work is setting the data module to save as local rather than cloud. Does anyone know where the files are stored? I would like to be able to delete old saves, in case they take up too much space on the server etc. Ideally, I'd like to go back to cloud saves though

  9. Has anyone got any further ideas or updates for this issue?

    Sorry, I'm kinda out of ideas for this... the War Room website is up and running again maybe confirm your server setup and re-download the necessary WR files? Post a fresh RPT if you get a chance.
