Make a new server folder. Put the dedilauncher in that folder and run “DedicatedServerLauncher1600.exe -steamid 931580” to create the folders with only the right id. Edited all the fields to be what I wanted (ports, server name, branch, etc). Now it had the right server version because I never ran it with 443030 (which confused my original).
Probably means that going from one product id to another on the same install location is not working smoothly, possibly some SteamCMD artifacts, or maybe some local differences between the two versions of the game server)
Yeah its something like that. If I tried in the old server, it was giving me messages like “931580 is already up to date!” even tho it was stuck. Fresh install only using your fix on first launch of dedi is apparently key…. That and dont change the branch accidentally after creating it (like I stupidly did)
Suggestion: If it were possible to point the “players joined” and chat box to the discord hook with a checkbox, it would be very, very cool. With a certain mod we could do this before, but it would be awesome if it were directed to discord by the launcher like the update events and such.
I dont know whats causing it but I know what I’d try. I’d make a new folder with the 1.6.0 dedi launcher, run it to generate the server data and folders, then move over the old database and server settings.
Fyi I had to redo my server again today (I think the pc had a windows update… ). Something is unstable about holding the steamid. I guess I’ll just hope it doesnt happen again since it wouldnt make a lot of sense to totally track this down during limited testlive. Just more or less posting this here so people know to look out for it.
If then you quit, and start it again with -steamid 931580 it will properly enable the new steam id, but the registry is not going to be updated, so on the net login it will start the launcher with the default id.
What you should do is to either edit the registry key, or disable then enable again the launch on login so the registry key looks like that:
So I just checked the log and dedi, I didnt have launch on login for this server checked (which for simplicity I’m glad I didn’t) and curiously, the only version it mentions is 931580… very curious. Reading the log you wouldn’t know anything is wrong, but it did load with the old version. Very curious indeed.
At any rate, installing it again did get it working again by just moving over an earlier backup database from that day and copying over serversettings, so no big deal for me. Hey it’s testlive afterall right?
Where in the Folder-Structure should the “html”-folder be placed?
I might have found the answer, but I’m not a 100% sure.
I have placed my “html”-folder in X:\Server\Conan Exiles Dedicated Server\DedicatedServerLauncher\ConanExilesDedicatedServer\ConanSandbox\html
