And Easter is behind us, back to work!

Since apparently the new https CDN links are working fine, I edited the top post to fix all the URL to use the new link, which means the current 1.3.8 and 1.4.0 links should now be working fine for everybody:

  • The current official version: 1.3.8 (released 22 January 2021).
  • The latest beta version: 1.4.0 (released 24 March 2021).

Regarding the server crashes, please don’t ask me to look at them, I simply don’t have the elements or knowledge to answer these, and in most cases I’m going to ask you to either post on the suppo...

Maybe I fumbled when adding the new settings for the zombie checker, like overwrote the same entry in the ini file, will have to check that.

Anything special in the launcher log, compared to normal restart?

Damn… guess I’ll have to check that next week: Is it “tends to” or is it “always” skip?

See: Conan Exiles Dedicated Server Launcher (Official Version: 1.3.8 / Beta: 1.4.0) - #1959 by Toolguy

If you want an older version, you need to copy the link and use something like Internet Explorer, or any other browser that does not try to use HTTPS everywhere, because for some reason the place where the files are hosted is failing at answering HTTPS requests (works in HTTP).

Ok, if it works for everybody, I will push the new releases to that one instead.
Thanks for testing.

Apparently it’s a problem with http/https protocol, it looks like Chrome is trying to access every resource of a https page using https protocol, unfortunately the CND link does not seem to work with https, currently looking at an alternative.

I signaled the problem, not sure what’s happening.
Thanks for the report :slight_smile: (and also to @sthanleym and @bobojim a few weeks before that)

Easter Bunny special version for you people. :egg: :rabbit: :chocolate_bar:

1.4.0 (24 march 2021)

  • The “Launcher” log tab now has the date and time displayed for each entry in the log (local time)
  • The RCon connection now has a 10 seconds timeout, to avoid the tool to stay stuck in case of bad connection (or server stuck), and the error messages are now properly sent to the launcher log instead of being printed to stderr
  • A new “Zombie Check” checkboard and delay has been added: When enabled it will automatically try to kill the process if the monitored input/output data has not changed for a specified amount of time

The bottom line seems to be that:

  • Specifying the custom map in the ini files does work
  • Passing the custom map as the first parameter on the command line (which normally works for the Exiled Lands and Siptah) fails when using the custom map

The error being "LoadPackageAsync failed to begin to load a package because the supplied package name was neither a valid long package name nor a filename of a map within a content folder: ‘’"

If you can come up with a working strategy, I can investigate, but at first glance I don’t see an easy way of detecting/associating a startup error with the mods, if that was easy, I think the game would already implement that :slight_smile:

Ok, I also get that when I try with an existing drive letter, so somewhat windows believe there is a E: drive, but it can’t be accessed.

I assume you tried to install all the windows updates, and reboot the machine?

Well, it’s not the launcher that stopped the server, it’s the server that stopped after crashing, which could be caused my many things (mods order or compatibility, game db content, etc…)

No matter what we try, make sure first that you have proper backups of your gamedb (I assume you have setup that) so you always have a version with all the content.

Now, regarding what causes the crash, I can’t help, so my suggestions would be to post that on the actual game crash threads, or possibly ask on the server a...

Still a mysterious thing.

Ok, bonus question, on this machine, have you ever connected a mobile phone, or do you happen to have a memory card reader installed?

Just for a test, could you try to do something horrible like:

  • Open a CMD shell
  • Type: SUBST E: C:\

normally you should see a E:\ drive appear on the machine (basically pointing at the same content as your C: drive, but you could SUBST to some safe subfolder that contains nothing) see if that helps appeased the server?

The function I’m calling is doing similar to what is shown on this old Code Project article:

Well, that was the good thing to do, just bad luck you managed to get one issue I’ve never seen before !

Actually, if you could somewhat make a video capture that shows the problem, like capturing the starting of the tool, launching, patching, up to the point where the e: popup appears, that would make it easier to show people to ask if they have any idea of what could cause that.

I’m not sure, Exiles has a lot of log spam, and I’m not going to poke the colleagues on a Sunday evening :slight_smile: (I’m not on the Exiles team, I’m only maintaining the tool)

Only thing I can think of is to try to “validate” the install, but after that, I’m out of idea.
I’ve never, ever, seen this particular error, so I guess maybe join the server admin discord and ask there if anyone has seen that one.

Could you try to install the launcher in a folder without space, like instead of “C:\users\sweet potato” something like “C:\ConanServer” just to see?

Also, do you have a E: drive at all?
