How should I update config files on my server?

6 posts in this topic

How would I update config files on my server? I have 0.9.8 and I want to update it to 1.0.1 but have been having some problems loading in, (stuck on loading map screen)

I have a lot in my exile_server_config.pbo config file and want to update it but don't want to copy and paste everything over again when I setup my old one. How should I go about this?

I'm not entirely positive , but I think your gonna have to replace the old configs with the new, and then add everything custom that you added to the old ones, into the new.  As far as I can tell, since 0.9.8 there have been quite a few additions to exile, as well as changes in the coding itself. So to be 100% safe and sure you will get a server up and running, I'd say do just that.

P.S. WinMerge is a great program to use to help you get through all this without pulling your hair out :P

make sure to update your description.ext, it has a skipLobby = 1; or something like that, it is needed, else you will be stuck on "loading map"

I found it, and I have it enabled, its just that when I load in, I get this screen after the loading map... I can't move or esc out.

read the RPT (the logs) and see if there is any errors and @ExileServer is being loaded.
