Dedicated server - steamcmd support?

Post by RedSpid3r » Wed Jun 16, 2021 6:05 pm

Dear GIANTS,

based off this thread viewtopic.php?t=89619

are there any plans to included support for steamcmd launching OR distributing dedicated server builds via steamcmd? I now own 3 copies of the game for a solution i cannot run.

The current implementation of dedicated servers is really bad and not intuitive or user friendly at all.

Hope this improves with 22!

Hi,
Does your issue related to the fact you have to validate the server launch each time you retstart it from the Web panel ?

No. I built a docker container to run the game using WINE and Steamcmd. Currently I am running this on a Windows 10 VM, but a docker container is much less resource intensive and more flexible.

The web UI works fine, but the server will not launch because the web ui always reports that "Game is not activated" despite the game being installed via steamcmd on an account that owns the game on Steam. My guess is that because the game does not support launching via steamcmd it is not passing the steam user credentials / not recognising that the user has a valid license via steam.

In an ideal world, GIANTS would release dedicated server binaries that can be downloaded for free like many other steam native games

Any input from GIANTS would be greatly appreciated - are there any command line launch options that can be used?

If your copies have less than 2hrs of run time you could return/refund them on steam and then purchase through GIANTS. Also known as my highly nontechnical work around rather than solution.
