Work Around for the steamcmd issue (TCA v1)


Recommended Posts

I made a temporary work around for the steamcmd issue in TCA v1.



How does it work?

It will stop the tcadmin monitor service and instead create a "gaming service" in tcadmin launching the MonitorConsole.exe from a batch. The "gaming service" will be running under SYSTEM account.

When deleting/uninstalling the game server it will set the standard TCAdmin service back up.


How to install:

- Import the attached game config

- Create a "Game Files Folder" named "TCAmonitorconsole" on your files server and drop a dummy file inside (some .txt file or whatever you want) just to make TCA believe the game files exists.

- Now for each machine you want to apply the fix to create a new game server selecting the game "TCAdmin monitor console". Slots and rconpassword do not matter as they are unused.


I recommend you to install it on 1 machine first and make sure it works fine before going further.

If any issue/question please post in this thread. No follow up guaranteed but will try to assist if possible.
