Squad.xml Requests

Recommended Posts

MyStiKzZ    0

Making a new post for Clans / Groups to request a squad.xml file for there DayZ Profiles.

Info

http://community.bistudio.com/wiki/squad.xml

About
To support the multiplayer community in their effort to play as teams, like many ArmA clans and squads are trying to, it's possible to create a common information file - the "squad.xml" -, which is stored on a personal webspace or on an FTP server and loaded by the ArmA game server, if a member of this team is playing on it.
Beside detailed informations about the single player and its team which can be gained by pressing "P" ingame, the feature supports also a common logo, which will be displayed on vehicles, if such team has boarded it. 

More info for Clans/Squads

So what now? If you need help. I can make the files for your clan/group to host. All I need is a 256x256 image or an idea to work with.

Host the files yourself - http://www.000webhost.com/order.php is free if you have no host. All you need todo is edit the squad.xml file to add members. Then edit your profile in game and add the squad.xml URL to your player profile.

- Make sure you add Player ID, Nick and Name to Squad.xml

- The Nick has to match the one in your profile.

Work done so far and examples.

CB - http://www.fridaynightgaming.co.uk/squad.xml

ISC - http://team-revival.host22.com/ISC/squad.xml

And EMS

If you could make one for me and my other Australian friends that is just an Australian flag for us to ID each other. Would be awesome thanks!

Its for Squads / Clans / Groups with a name only m8 as it automatically shows the clan tag at the end of your name when added to profile.

Thats why clans like CB, CTC all have there Clantags at the end now as the squad.xml does that automatically.

One option could be to

Clan Name = Australian's

Clan Tag = Aus

Hey mate could you please fix my squad logo out? Whenever I try to do it with a transparent background I get this:

Yo yo! The legend that is Vaultboy 101 (or whatever his name was in-game) suggested I contact you.

I'm looking to get this made into a logo.

Tag: "RBT"

Let me know if I've done anything wrong or left anything out, I have no idea what I'm doing xD

Hi, I've tried making my own squad.xml but I have trouble with the webhosting stuff. I would love for you to email me at [email protected] so I could send you the already prepared squad.xml and logo.paa. Pretty sweet that you're doing this for people, much appreciated. I also have the squad.dtd if you need it.

Rick I believe you digged up quite a dead topic :P

Webhosting via page Mystikkz is quite simple, that way I did so too for my clan.

Try again, post in troubleshooting part of forums if neccesery. If help will be needed I'll see what I can do.

Ah sorry about that. I'll try that page. Thank you


Actually what would be really nice is a quick walkthru of where to put the files using www.000webhost.com since I already have a webpage there, it just has 404 errors when I try view it so I probably screwed it up somehow

Fixed it, it's all working with transparent logo n all.
