Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Dedicated Server won't boot


I'm making a dedicated server for my game and no matter what I do the server won't start. I have the files, however the server process does not stay open.

I can't give much more info as I have no clue what it is.

Are you running your dedicated server with -log command-line. Without that, the dedicated server will run in the background without any window. If you are simply running dedicated server without -log command line then check your Task Manager. You should see your server still running.

It's opening the process then instantly closing it again.

Could you please check the log? It should be in your Saved folder under YourGameServer/Saved/Logs folder.
