little but helpful improvment

  • When you start the server following the tutorial, if you add an antislash ('') at the end of the game directory, the server fail to launch with an inappropriate error (could not authenticate.. blabla: 401).

    This is very confusing and I had to spend time trying to find whats wrong.

    I think its will be a very cheap but helpful improvement to fix that !
    I might not be the only one facing this issue and even for you when someone ask for help i may be hard to catch the real problem.

  • If you are getting a could not authenticate I believe that's due to your key being incorrect. You can try modeling your start.bat after mine, as I have had no issues with mine.

    @echo off
    
    set game=t6mp
    :: Replace t6mp with t6zm, or iw5mp if that's what server you are using.
    set key=xxxxx
    set GameFolder=C:\T6Server
    :: This should be your game folder.
    set cfg=dedicated.cfg
    set port=4976
    
    .\bin\plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe %game% "%GameFolder%" +set key "%key%" +set sv_config "%cfg%" +set net_port "%port%" +start_map_rotate -dedicated
    

    With this specific script, do not add quotes around any of the set variables as the quotes are already added in the actual running of the .exe

    Sorry Chase, but no, thats the point of my post ;).
    My key is 100% correct, problem was the ending anti-slash that I had at the end of my game directory path in the command line :

    KO:

    > bin\plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe iw5mp "C:\Games\CODMW3_SERV\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3\" +set key "MyKey" +start_map_rotate -dedicated
    

    OK:

    > bin\plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe iw5mp "C:\Games\CODMW3_SERV\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3" +set key "MyKey" +start_map_rotate -dedicated
    

    Hummm.. maybe its because \" make the ending quote to be ignored... ๐Ÿ˜•

    That sounds plausible, good catch!
