Conan Exiles Dedicated Server Launcher (Official Version: 1.3.8 / Beta: -----)

I just made a small test version, which hopefully will address two of the issues we have (mods downloading timeout and external IP monitoring), but since 1) I never experienced the time outs and 2) my IP never changes, it was kind of difficult to test.

So please, @ErynLyn @hoangducdt @domyz and anyone else having similar issues, you could you gie a shot at this version and tell me if that helps (or if it does not work at all)?

1.3.6 (11 january 2021)

  • Added “validate” to each of the +workshop_download_item command sent to SteamCMD, hopefully this will help with timeouts on large mods
  • The launcher now monitors the External IP every 10 minutes and signals when it changes

Question:
I just realized I still have the “Close Steam” check box on the server launcher.

I guess since the FLS Exiles deployment, this is not required anymore? There are no more conflicts between the game server and the Steam client?

So I guess it’s fine to remove from the UI?

I never actually used it, not even before FLS. I had to confirm an error message on start, but it worked just fine. So I don’t see a reason to keep it either.

Automatic Updates are no longer working, it happened after new year I think.
When I use the ? mark, I get this:

OK

I have to restart manually.

This is working awesomely!!

Could you try with this version?

1.3.7 (13 january 2021)

  • Modified the server update detection code to use the “buildid” field of the ACF files instead of the timestamps to avoid problems when switching between two branches where the same build has been deployed being detected as an update.
    Dedicated Server Launcher 1.3.7

I did a quick test and got that:

Ok, then it will be probably be gone in some near future version.
Less code, less butons, less things to keep working and explain to people :slight_smile:

Cool!
Thanks for the feedback. :slight_smile:

Yes, this version worked without error. I guess it will also work on the next patch too.

Another thing:
In the player tab at the bottom, you can see when a player log in and what the character name say in chat, can it also show when a player (character) log off?

Ok, cool, thanks :slight_smile:

I’l let you test it a little longer, and if nobody finds catastrophic issues, I’ll push it to “new official” tomorrow or the day after that.

Possibly, I’m doing pattern matching, so if I find any of these strings in the log, it gets shown in the PlayerLog:

  • ChatWindow:
  • Join succeeded:
  • Login request:
  • PreLogin failure:
  • VerifyIdentity Completed:

If you can find a 100% certain correct element in the log that I can use to detect a character leaving, with relevant display information, just say, and I’ll add it. (can also be anything else useful related to players, and same thing for the other sections - like mods -)

Only ‘disconnect’ message I found in conansandbox.log is from Battleye:
‘BattlEyeServer: Print Message: Player #2 XXXXX disconnected’

Conansandbox.log is a mess since everything goes in there. Just by restarting the server you get hundreds of new lines.

The text in the seperate tabs are difficult to read since they refresh after a few second.
Is it possible to take the text in these tabs directly into notepad, not to edit but just to read?

Normally CTRL-A + CTRL-C should work, at least last time I tried it did.

Ok, Thanks.

And there was a new update today and now it worked perfect.

Every time I log out I get this in the log:

LogNet: UChannel::ReceivedSequencedBunch: Bunch.bClose == true. ChIndex == 0. Calling ConditionalCleanUp.
LogNet: UChannel::CleanUp: ChIndex == 0. Closing connection. [UChannel] ChIndex: 0, Closing: 0 [UNetConnection] RemoteAddr: xx.■■■.xx.■■■:xxxxx, Name: IpConnection_1, Driver: GameNetDriver IpNetDriver_0, IsServer: YES, PC: FunCombat_PlayerController_C_1, Owner: FunCombat_PlayerController_C_1

I am always the only player on the server though, might be just some cleanup thing.

edit:// RemoteAddr is a placeholder here, don’t know why it got formatted to those little squares. :smiley:

We have a problem with the autoupdate function. The option “Check for Updates and Restart” is enabled, but it no longer detects new updates. In addition, it shows an error message when I run the check manually. Only after a server restart the update is found via the steamconsole.

Tested with Version 1.3.1 and 1.3.6

@Terrance I just promoted 1.3.7 as the new Official Version, for reminder here is the link:

1.3.7 (13 january 2021)

  • Modified the server update detection code to use the “buildid” field of the ACF files instead of the timestamps to avoid problems when switching between two branches where the same build has been deployed being detected as an update.
    Dedicated Server Launcher 1.3.7

So from your Edit, I guess things are working now?
Did you change anything? (first time I see this error message actually)

I honestly have no idea, could be quite a lot of things.
Maybe ask on the Admin Discord if anyone has a suggestion?

Ah, sorry, I wasn’t really clear about what I’m responding to.

@stinger asked for a way to log when a player logs off and you asked for a detectable element for pattern matching, I was responding to that. Hopefully someone will be able to confirm that it’s unique to player logging off.

Lol, yeah I totally missed that :slight_smile:
I guess the problem is that:

  • The first method only works if BattlEye is enabled
  • The second does not provide the name of the player (only player controller X)

Maybe I should just ask the team to add a clear log message when players leave :slight_smile:

Just another minor upgrade

1.3.8 (22 january 2021)

  • The status bar should not appear truncated anymore if the launcher is started on a very small screen width (like a tiny Remote Desktop Session)
  • Removed the “Close Steam” option
  • Renamed “Stream Query Port” to “Source Query Port”
    Dedicated Server Launcher 1.3.8

Not much on the outside, but I did a bit of cleaning in the code, keeping the “Technical Debt” in check.
