Dedicated Server failed to start

  • Closed

Hi there, Yesterday I was playing this private world, in fact I started it yesterday. My problem is that when i was going to start it in the night, this error happened to me. I had to update the game just before. I have supposed that the patch had something to do with this issue, but when i came to forums, i didn´t see too many people having this issue, so i posted this. I tried to deactivate my antivirus, just in case, and already verified files. I also have the same issue if i try to generate any new world.

None of both solves anything. I play with no mods at all. It is the flat game.

If I can help you with some files or show, please tell me where those files are, and i will upload then. I have DST on steam and both steam and DST are installed by default.

I added Client log just in case

Many thanks

Steps to Reproduce
Was when i restarted the game after patching it. I do not know what steps you can take.

Hey @Tassel, welcome to the forums. Since you already tried to verify the integrity of the game cache, then the next best thing I can think of that you can do is to also attach the server_log.txt file found under Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogether\DATA\Cluster_1\Master (that Cluster_1 is the save folder for the first save slot in the Host Game screen.) The server_log.txt should be able to give more info about why the server itself is not working. The devs may be able to help you directly with this.

It's way past office hours over where they are as of this moment, so hopefully you'd get a response within the next 42hours. Cheers.

Of course I can,

Cluster 1: the already generated and played world
normal
server_log.txt

caves

server_log.txt

World 2 configured, error before even starting it. HAs no logs to show you. I tried to launch it without caves, without events, and nothing seems to work, launching a new one either.

 

Many thanks

The log files you posted show about 20 min of play time in them. 

Could you please delete both server log files then try to load up world #1 again. If it gives an error then close DST then attach the new log files.

Thanks.

@Tassel

Normally when files fail to write its due to windows file access permissions.

Can you try renaming up your \Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogether directory to DoNotStarveTogether_backup and then try again (creating a new world)?

Could you also attach your client_log.txt file, maybe that will give me some insight.

Hi there, old client_log, the one of the folder i have changed the name.

OK problem fixed, i can create a new world now. I am quite happy with that. Is posible to recover my game, or is not?
If is easy to recover it, please tell me how, but do not lose time, if u need to try things. the world had <16 days, it was a good begginig. But the important thing is i can play now

client_log.txt

To restore your world, could you try this:
delete your new DoNotStarveTogether  (or back it up to DoNotStarveTogether_thisoneworks)
copy/past DoNotStarveTogether_backup
rename the newly pasted file to DoNotStarveTogether
try to load your world

I found the problem.

My antivirus had bloqued some files from the folder, so even when deactivated was causing problems. Then when i restarted the computer the antivirus, turned on again, and kept blocking the game. I have solved now for me. But it was thanks to you Scott that gave me the key of the problem. Really many thanks

Encontré el problema.

Mi antivirus había bloqueado algunos archivos de la carpeta, por lo que incluso cuando estaba desactivado estaba causando problemas. Luego, cuando reinicié la computadora, el antivirus, lo encendí nuevamente y seguí bloqueando el juego. He resuelto ahora por mí. Pero fue gracias a ti, Scott, que me diste la clave del problema. Muchas gracias

Hi Borla, how could you solve the problem with the antivirus? I happen to have the same problem and can't load or spawn new worlds. I tried what the technician said to modify the file name and it worked. the thing is, I can't get my old world back. I gave a file to lock after a game update, but I can't find in the antivirus where the locked files are.

Hiya. I updated the version of DST, and my server completely crashed after downloading the update.

We've been playing for over 400 days, and right after the update, I can't access the server anymore.

How do we get this sorted?? Please help! Thanks!

Hello,

I had the same problem, however the cause was not on Klei side. I just caught virus Brontok.E which among many other things, installed discretly VPN program that made it impossible to host DST game (although I could "log in" at the start of the game).

So check your computers guys! You never know (I wouldnt either, but sudden pc restarts made me wonder..). Hope this tip will help somebody, have fun!
