v1.5.0(beta18) (2019-04-15) CRITICAL Hotfix!  Fixed Atlas Auto-Updater (and more!)
- Fixed: Auto Atlas updater was not updating.
- Added: New _start_AtlasServerUpdateUtility.bat file that updates with each util update. If desired, add a shortcut of this file to your startup folder.
- Fixed: Log Ticker would stop updating.
- Fixed: You can now edit files in the File Editor/Viewer window. Colorized version coming soon!
- Fixed: "Start Servers" and "Stop Servers" buttons working.
- Added: Small delay after deleting Server_Summary.txt file. This will hopefully fix a lockup.
- Fixed: Improved the utility's recognition of running servers at startup.

To update, just click "Check for util update" in the utility's tray icon. Thanks!

- Added: Setup Wizard. It is now much easier now for new users to start using this utility.
- Added: New default AltSaveDIR naming scheme: A1,A2,A3,B1,B2,B3,C1,etc.
- Fixed: No more extra servers being started! Fixed a couple instances where Redis and Server PIDs were not saving correctly when utility exited prematurely.

New Beta! v1.5.0(beta24) (201-04-25)  Minor bug fixes and a new scheduler!
- Added: CPU usage is now operational for each grid (total CPU usage does not always work yet).
- Added: Scheduled events: Send RCON commands to All or Local grids or run any file at scheduled times. (Thanks to Norlinri for requesting)
- Added: Util now creates backup Server and Redis PID files to help prevent duplicate servers from being started.
- Fixed: The util would freeze and eventually crash if SteamCMD locked up during update check. A 20 second shutdown timer was added to task kill SteamCMD if it locks up.
- Fixed: The util would freeze and eventually crash if errors occurred when checking current installed server version. A new method was implemented to hopefully prevent further lock ups.

To update, just click "Check for util update" in the utility's tray icon.

v1.5.1 (2019-04-30) Minor Hotfixes   🍸 **EZ Update!** 🍸 No config changes needed. Simply click update!
- Fixed: The Setup Wizard had several bugs that were fixed.
- Added: The util now creates batch files (in folder "Batch Files (to run Atlas manually)") to manually run and update your Atlas servers in case of SHTF (utility failure!)
- Fixed: When new mod(s) are added/discovered, the util previously did nothing. It will now restart the servers (with announcements if servers were already running).
- Changed: 32-bit (x86) version of the utility is once again the default. I received a couple reports of instability possibly related to the 64-bit (x64) version.
- Fixed: Update Mod button now disables if no mods are used or if "Use this util to install mods and check for mod updates (as listed in ServerGrid.json)? (yes/no) ###=no" (Thanks to funtimes for reporting)

**- Parameter text in green=has a value set.  Gray=No value set for that grid.**

Is it normal that it get's stuck on starting and doesn't get to running. Forwarded ports, start the server the cmd pops up goes through everything and says server started "map name" etc, but program says still starting , and can't see it in atlas server list

Edit: Forgot to mention i've also let it sit and waited for over 10 minutes without change still starting. Even basic 1x1 grids.

Hi Purplesnorlax..  v1.8.4 had a bug that would cause the status "Starting" to show if "Poll Online Players" is not checked/enabled.  I released v1.8.5 today which fixed that (and several other things).

BUT I'm guessing the problem is with the RCON ports or the "RCON IP (ex. 127.0.0.1 - Leave BLANK for server IP) ###=" in the main AtlasServerUpdateUtil.ini file.
- To check for a "ready" server, the util checks the RCON response to "ListPlayers". If no response, the util assumes the grid is offline/not ready.
- Check the config or the Server_Summary.txt file for proper RCON port assignment.
 

As for the server not showing up on the server lists.. unfortunately that could be many things.
- Leave a gap between port assignments. ex. 28500, 28502,28504, etc.
- I forward any port number plus 1 in the router.  So if a port is 28500, I also forward port 28501.

Looking at other posts might be helpful for troubleshooting the "can't see it in atlas server list" problem.

Good luck,

-Phoenix125

@flex73The Crash Watchdog is restarting your servers. That usually occurs when the RCON ports are not forwarded or some other RCON issue.  Basically, if the util gets no response to the "ListPlayers" command for 5 minutes, it assumes the grid crashed and will restart it.

Ideally, try to find out what is causing the RCON problem, but you can also just disable the crash watchdog. In the Config (AtlasServerUpdateUtility.ini file or "CONFIG" button in main window), change the following to zero (0):
[--------------- CRASH WATCHDOG ---------------]
Number of failed RCON attempts (after grid had responded at least once) before restarting grid (0-Disable, 0-5) (Default is 2) ###=0
Minutes to wait for RCON response before restarting grid (0-Disable, 0-10) (Default is 5) ###=0
Number of crashes before disabling grid (0-Disable, 0-5) (Default is 3) ###=0

If you want, you can look for the response when you send "ListPlayers" via RCON using the "Send RCON" button. It may give a clue as to why the RCON was/is failing.

@merlin66676 It works with Blackwood if you do the following.  I will be updating it for easier integration, but it might be a few days. Here's a post I placed on my Discord server:

For those wanting to use the new Blackwood Single Player, do the following until I update the util:
1. Use the wizard to install your server (even if an existing server.. this will create the temp ServerGrid.json file).
2. After Atlas installation has completed, make the following changes to the ASUU.ini file:
[ --------------- GAME SERVER CONFIGURATION --------------- ]
Atlas extra command line parameters (ex.?serverpve-pve -NoCrashDialog) ###= -log -server -NoSeamlessServer
Map Name ###=Blackwood
Import RCON ports from GameUserSettings.ini files? (yes/no) ###=no
Server RCON Port(s) (comma separated, grid order as in ServerGrid.json, ignore if importing RCON ports) ###=25710

3. Then restart the util. When you get the following popup, select NO (to the prompt posted below).
(Thanks Aceman, noelpy, and others for the info)
4. (Optional) Copy the \AtlasUtilFiles\ServerGrid.json file to the \Atlas Server\ShooterGame\ folder.

@flex73The util has an automated backup option. It backs up the \ShooterGame\Saved\ folder (minus the ocean.A1.1500.atlas backup files), the redis folder, and the util's config files. It can also do full backups of your Atlas installation and any other folders you wish to add.

Hello. Can you adjust Map Name \\ Ocean / Blackwood to Atlas Server Update Utility GridStartSelect. ini with each grid set separately? That way I can start a Blackwood directly in my existing grid.
1.94/1.95 version program will crash after shutting down the server when executing automatic update or daily automatic restart command, so it can not start the server.
Thank you

@Yet I had never considered running Blackwood simulatenously with an existing map.  I planned for running two instances of the util instead.  I'll consider adding that.. thanks!
As for your program crashing: I haven't had anyone report that before. Do you mind PMing me your AtlasServerUpdateUtility_LogFull_[date].txt file so I can try to troubleshoot? Thanks.

Thank you for the logs, but unfortunately the log was not very helpful since the program appeared to simply crash as you stated. I noticed, though, that the KeepAlive is noticing the crash but failing to restart ASUU (AtlasServerUpdateUtility).
The KeepAlive log:
   2019/08/06 09:28:41 WARNING! D:\AtlasServerUpdateUtility\AtlasServerUpdateUtility_v1.9.5.exe closed unexpectedly. Restarting program.
   2019/08/06 09:28:41 AtlasServerUpdateUtility_v1.9.5.exe PID(0) started.

Notice the PID(0). It's acting like it cannot find the file.  Here's an example if what it should look like:
   2019/08/06 23:09:49 AtlasServerUpdateUtility_v1.9.5.exe PID(36480) started.
It's possible that Windows Defender or another antivirus is blocking. If not done so already, try adding the AtlasServerUpdateUtility folder your Windows Defender Allow list.
It's also possible that the Windows Region (English vs Chinese) is causing issues, although I know of a couple other people in China using the program.
If these solutions do not help, let me know.
Thank you.

@Phoenix125 Thank you for this manager, its so nice!!!

But i got a problem with the latest 1.9.5 build:

It just stop working the function to stop server.
I click on Stop Server, no matter with i choose to announce or not, it sent the do command exit, but the server don't shutdown.

I tested the rcon: sent msg to the server (thinking that it was a rcon bug), but it successfully broadcast the message to the server.

I'm using just one grid with Blackwood map.


Any idea how to fix it, please?

ty!
