The Commands

To use any of the commands within ArmA3, bring up the normal chat box using the / (forward slash) key and enter the command.


NOTE:

Due to the way that the game accepts anything in the chat there is a few things to be aware of when using any of the admin commands that start with ! (exclamation mark):
  • Global chat
Is always sent to the server even if you are alone on the server, so using global will always work.
  • Side chat
Will only be sent to the server if there is other players on the same side as you.
It will not work if there is 1 player on each side.
  • Group chat
Will only work if there is other players in the same group as you.
  • Vehicle chat
Will only work if there are other players in the same vehicle as you.
  • Direct chat
Will only work if there is other players near you to pick up the chat.

Public commands

View Help

  • Lists all commands the admin/player is allowed to execute
!help
Example: !help

View Info

  • Send a pre-defined text message to player
!info

List Players

There are two methods of geting player information, and they will show different player ID#'s. Ensure that you use the right method for the command you are performing.

Player list for commands starting with #

  • For any commands that start with a # (hash):
#userlist
Example:
ArmA3AdminUserList.jpg

The player ID# for [RIP]BearBison is 3

Player list for commands starting with !

  • For any commands that start with a ! (exclamation mark):
#beclient players
Example:
ArmA3AdminBEclientPlayers.jpg

The player ID# for [RIP]BearBison is 0

Voting

The servers are configured to allow voting so that anyone can become admin without needing to know the RCON password. Although all voting is enabled, only the voting of admin is covered here.

Admin Vote

Even if you are part of the [RIP] admin team, there should always be an admin logged into the in-game admin.

To login to the in-game admin the voting option has been enabled to prevent issues with our RCON password having to be revealed.

There are two options to vote an admin, depending if the game has started or not:

Voting Admin in Lobby
  • Prior to voting an admin, you will need to get the players ID# using #userlist
  • To vote for someone as admin
#vote admin playersID#
Example: #vote admin 3


NOTE:

The playersID# is the one found using this command
  • Once voted, the server will show you details of who you voted for and if the player is accepted as admin it will inform the user
ArmA3AdminVoteAdminCLI.jpg
  • The player that is now admin will have (Admin) added to the right of their name
