[LINUX] Saving character + GameSettings issues

Postby VleNiK » Thu Oct 15, 2015 1:54 pm

Hello lads!

First post here, hoping someone can help me with the problems I'm having while running my own dedicated server on my kubuntu machine...
I've installed an Ark dedicated server with the guidance of

http://ark.gamepedia.com/Dedicated_Server_Setup

So far so good, it runs, players can join and have some fun... BUT...

Issue #1:
If a player has played for quite some time and logs off, the next time he logs on he has to create a new character.
Although, his body is just laying there on the floor?...
So I've searched the internet for a solution but nevertheless, nothings works :-s
Creating a bed, cheating with console command 'cheat saveworld', 'admincheat save', 'admincheat saveworld'...
A pain in the ass if you've created your own fort and have to start all over again, and again...

Any help?

Issue #2:
inside my etc/systemd/system folder I've created the 'ark-dedicated.service' file with some parameters in it...
When my machine boots, the server starts w/o problems.
But when i request the status of the server with command "

Code: Select all

systemctl status ark-dedicated.service
" it gives me several errors:

Code: Select all

I've no idea what I'm doing wrong :s

My service-file looks like this:

Code: Select all

After=syslog.target network.target nss-lookup.target network-online.target
