Update patch 1.50 is available now for download on the App Store. Enjoy!
Check it out here: http://itunes.apple.com/en/app/procon-bf3-edition/id470129359?mt=8
Additionally you can expect another patch shortly which will add support for the all new and gorgeous 4″ retina display of the iPhone 5.
Mainly we can expect a working join queue which distinguishes between vip players (which are selected by the server administrators via a reserved slot / vip list), premium players (players who bought the battlefield premium upgrade) and regular players.
We are already working to implement those new features into all available versions of Procon. Stay tuned…
A german localization is available now for iOS Procon and is included in the shortly released update 1.16 which is available now on the App store. Depending on your feedback further language localizations might be added in the future. Please check the forum for updates.
iOS Procon BF3 Edition endlich auch auf Deutsch!
Endlich ist iOS Procon nun auch in einer komplett Deutsch lokalisierten Sprachversion erhältlich. Die Lokalisierung ist im neusten Patch 1.16 enthalten, den man bereits jetzt aus dem App store herunterladen kann. Die Lokalisierung war lange überfällig, denn die Deutsche Community ist enorm groß: Etwa jeder Dritte bis Vierte iOS Procon Benutzer kommt aus Deutschland! Viel Spaß mit iOS Procon BF3 Edition auf Deutsch!

Procon 1.1 is now downloadable on phogue.net!
Phogue is returning from DICE in Stockholm/Sweden where he worked together with Mikael Kalms on the BF3 server rcon interface to the last minute. They managed to implement a new maplist that will let you mix game modes leaving the known restrictions from Bad Company 2 behind. Even though they did their very best Procon’s full functionality will not be available from day one – for some features (e.g. battle map, plugins, reserved slots…) the BF3 server rcon interface will have to be further modified and expanded – DICE and of course the Procon team will continue to work hard on this in the following weeks.
Please also check this forum post for more information.
iOS Procon for BF3 will probably be released in about a week!
After some last tests that need to be performed in the next 3-4 days it will enter the Apple App Review process which will hopefully only take a couple of days before the App will actually be available for download on the App Store.
As a small gift to our community iOS Procon for Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Medal of Honor are now available as free downloads on the App store. This goes for the iPhone/iPod version as well as the dedicated iPad version of the App. Enjoy!

iOS Procon for BF3 serves as a standalone remote administration tool for (PC-Version) ‘Battlefield 3′ game servers. Using a direct connection to your game server it provides you with complete control over your settings, lists, map rotations, lets you browse logs and event lists, chat and interact with the players on your server. Furthermore it is of compatible with the Procon layer server architecture. Logging onto a layer server lets you take advantage of Procon’s sub-admin account management and plugins even on your iOS device.
Top new features of the BF3 Edition:
- Universal App supporting iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, supporting all display orientations and retina display
- App fully prepared for in-app language localization
- Improved App navigation using a tab bar on the bottom of the screen which gives you fast access to the most important features of the App
- Extensive server information screen combined with easy to access round and map commands
- Improved player list with better screen usage and direct access to the player related commands directly in the list
- More readable colorful combined comannd, chat&events and punkbuster console
- An all new Battlemap feature known from Procon for Windows
More updates on the development progress will follow – so stay tuned …
Two days ago DICE and i3D.net set us up with a BF3 beta test server with full rcon access. After initial connection problems everything is up and running now. Testing Procon and iOS Procon with the BF3 server have begun and mostly everything is looking pretty good. Some parts of the remote access interface like the map sequencer remain deliberately locked at the moment – probably to keep us from using Procon to check out the “Caspian Border”.
A minor issue is that the BF3 rcon protocol still seems to have some bugs/glitches which result in some player status updates, the ingame-chat and the battle map not working correctly at the moment. According to DICE the next server software update which hopefully fixes some of the known problems will be available this weekend.
Stay tuned for more updates on the blog …
