Server Configuration Files always overwritten by default file
« on: Thursday, July 14, 2022, 10:27:33 AM »
Hello all,

for configuring my AA25 server I am using the AA25 Assist Server Manager which works very fine, except the issue that always when I restart my server the application redownloading some server configuration files and overwrites my edited files. This applies to the "aa25srv.ini". I could just detect a message in the command line tool:
"Downloading Server Configuration Files...
Installing Server Configuration Files..."
When this happens, the tool downloads a 7z archive called "server821.7z" with some default server configuration files and overwrites therefore all changes I did. Is there anyway to prevent this step without the need of finding a "nasty approach" ?

I would highly appriciate when someone can clarify this.

Warm regards,
AtomSoldier

Inside "System/server", create a blank file and name it: "srv-v8.21". That should stop your server from downloading the server config at every server startup.

I did that on purpose, because I tried to ship an edited version of "aa25srv.ini" with the last update and for an unknow reason, it made the servers crash, so I had to "fix" everyones servers... I will ship that file with the configs as soon as I have time and energy.

Information for all:  The workarround of Possessed worked for me. No more auto-downloads.

@Possessed: Can we just add this information anywhere until the bug is fixed (when you find energy and time).

I have added it to the FAQ.
