Are you running just as one server or through tcadmin setup?

but basically start line should be something like this: start /wait Factorio.exe --start-server YOUR_SAVE.zip



Thanks for the replay. I am indeed using Tcadmin 2.0 I have bought it so I can just run a home server instead of paying people all the time. I have used SteamCMD to add the game files to the root folder, then used the config wizard and pointed to said folder. Would I add that to the default command line settings?

I am familiar with source games and vaguely Arma3 but not Factorio and also Eco 😛

Try this - tested and re tested. All works. (tried to send private message but you cannot receive at this stage)

Remember to fill in username/password in the server settings file otherwise it will not show on masterlist in Factorio.

Any issues let me know. If all working well let me know then I can post it up into config releases.

I tried the XML file. It works temporarily, but the for some reason it shows the server sending a ^c and shuts the server down. Any suggestions or help fix it...

Open up the server config in tcadmin - goto text console and remove the ^C from the box. Save and update existing etc...

See if that fixes it.


Thank you for the reply, I removed it and trying it. funny thing is that it only did it after a save. Unfortunately it is still stopping. This time it does not show ^C when it stops the game..

I have tested your server-settings.json with my server and it runs no problem. No server crashing.

Only thing I can think of is the way your files are not reading to the directory the server is in.

I have attached my xml (windows). The configuration files are set to create files read and write to the directory of your server creation. Try this xml and see if things change.

(Remember to change user and password in server-settings)
