Veteran ARK server host here: I've just spun up a test Atlas server and even though the process is running and listening on the correct ports (this is Linux) and the server is receiving packets to the listening port, the server is reporting offline when polled by steam view > servers list (prompted manually).
Well, I think it's running. The stdout from the application is:
ATLAS@Games:~$ bash servertest.sh
Using binned.
4.5.1-0+UE4 7038 3077 409 10
[S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.
Setting breakpad minidump AppID = 834910

It's definitely listening and using a bunch of memory:

alexicon@Games:/home/ATLAS/ATLAS/ShooterGame/Saved/Logs$ sudo netstat -nlp | grep Shoot
tcp        0      0 *               LISTEN      26313/ShooterGameSe
udp        0      0  *                           26313/ShooterGameSe
udp    43008      0 *                           26313/ShooterGameSe

After some additional troubleshooting I found the following from the ShooterGame logs:

alexicon@Games:/home/ATLAS/ATLAS/ShooterGame/Saved/Logs$ sudo tail -f ShooterGame.log

I can see from the below post that this all looks okay, it's just that the server never starts: 

In this admin's case, the server took over 400 seconds to load. So I've left it for over 1200 and no dice.

The issue is due to poor error handling and hard-coded relative paths.

You _MUST_ execute the binary from the `./ShooterGame/Linux/Binaries` folder or it will just hang as the server never errors out when it cannot write the .atlas file.


[pid  3621] openat(AT_FDCWD, "/atlas/ShooterGame/../../../ShooterGame/Saved/AA/ocean.atlas", O_RDWR|O_CREAT|O_CLOEXEC, 0644) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
