Java Dedicated Server

    Hi all

    Been away from RW for a while and my group of players wanted a look at the New Unity Version but after a brief look it's clear there is little content currently in it. I was asked to setup a dedicated server for the Java version so i used SteamCMD to install using...

    +force_install_dir "C:\Servers\RisingWorldJava" +login anonymous +app_update 339010 validate +quit

    This just installed the New Unity version of the server but i thought you had to add -beta unity to get the new Unity version. How do i get the Java version of the server?

    Changed the title of the thread from “Java Server” to “Java Dedicated Server”.
  • Hmm... now this is weird :wat: I can confirm that downloading the server without specifying a beta indeed downloads the Unity version by default 8| This is definitely not supposed to happen, but I'm not sure if this is maybe a bug in SteamCMD :thinking: The Unity server is in a beta branch called "unity", while the "public" branch definitely contains the Java version:

    Downloading through the Steam client actually downloads the Java version, so this really looks like a bug in SteamCMD... we'll have to check out what's going on there, thanks for bringing this to our attention!

    However, as a workaround, you can explicitly instruct SteamCMD to download the public branch. To do that, just specify the -beta public parameter (i.e. "app_update 339010 -beta public"). Alternatively you can also specify the legacy branch (which explicitly contains the Java version) - this is probably the better approach, as this branch will never be removed (even once the new version replaces the Java version)

    //Edit: It looks like when downloading a beta branch, SteamCMD apparently caches this branch. So the next time you perform an "app_update", SteamCMD automatically uses the previously used branch (unless you specify a new beta branch). I'm not sure though if this is intended behaviour...
