So, since some updates, i myself can't get servers to run anymore for friends.

My Server shows up in the LAN list and i can find it in "MySurvivors", but the no one else is able to find or join it.
My Ports are forwarded. We even played the game a when i created the Guide.

Don't know what is wrong now...

Only time this problem seems to occur for me/my server players is when our client software doesn't match the server version. If it's appearing in the steam list, there should be no other reason other than your client connectivity (So something local, either the client or possibly a firewall rule or something of the sort)

Will the tool be updated to reflect all the admin changes like day and night cycles and setting damage for players and dinos and engrams earned etc?

I guess not, there are so many changes it's overwhelming for me. I think I should probably give up running my own server now

They just came out. Give HellsGuard some time to actually get it going. Came out just yesterday man. I cant wait too see his next DST version!
I really hope there will be one at least. Keep it up in your own speed Hells :).

Firstly, awesome app!
Has saved me a bunch of time, keep the updates coming!!

Secondly, can I suggest 2 features/options?

#1 - Add an option for selecting 'Content Server Download' location so that it doesn't poll your closest Steam Content server?
This is so if there are DNS issues, we can get around it by selecting a different download location - I was hit with this issue for 4 days and couldn't update the server via your tool.

#2 - Add an option for 'Verify File Integrity' instead of just running it when there is no update detected.
I run the update command a couple times in a row just to make sure there aren't a couple updates (one after the other), that has frequented the ARK EA.
Having to File Check near 17GB worth of files wastes valuable minutes :)

I understand that. Wasn't being pushy or rude. Just asking if Hellz is still planning to keep up with this awesome tool with so many changes that recently happened with 178-179 updates. I know he has a job and other things like most of us. If he can't do the updates, I want to know so I can look for a different solution-tool.

I really like this tool. It has made running a server much easier. Hoping he has the time to update it and try to figure out all these confusing options we now have as Admins.

Hey HellsGuard, just wanted to get in contact with you. I think since I've been using this tool for the server I set up for my friends, I have a little more incentive to improve it! ^_^

I was wondering if you had plans to add a command-line argument feature set to the tool to specify the new parameters. If not, I would be more than happy to start working on one!

Just let me know so that we don't both work on the same part! :)

EDIT: Just noticed the new settings can all be put into the .ini file as well, so they can all be treated as just more server options. I think that's where I'll implement it.

The command line arguments have been implemented a while ago, so make sure you got the recent version.
