7D2D RAT 2.0 Alpha -- 64 Bit 02002

A 7D2D Server Manager

  1. Trekkan
    This is the first Alpha Release of RAT 2.0

    Please read the following very carefully!

    Going forward, RAT will have a 64 bit and 32 bit version. These are separate downloads. Currently, I'm only releasing the 64bit version as most people are using 64 bit now anyway, and its less for me to manage until release.

    RAT now uses SQlite as its database backend. This means that you'll need to completely reconfigure RAT from scratch. This won't mean losing your game or players, etc... it doesn't affect your game server at all. But any events, messages, etc... you'll have to redo. Remember, RAT can import your serverconfig.xml file, so you should just be able to click the import button and be done with that part.

    You can install this version of RAT side by side of the current releases (as far as I know, no promises and if it doesn't work... its just not going to work with both installed).

    RAT also no longer includes the .NET framework. Ran requires the .NET framework 4.61 to run. If you don't have that already, you can find it here: Download Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 (Web Installer) for Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1, Windows Server 2012 and Windows Server 2012 R2 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    This reduces the download size of RAT by about 65mb, down to just 7mb.

    RAT is now being delivered only in .MSI format. This means you should be able to just click it to install it, instead of unzipping it first.

    Specific Patch Notes

    • Added: RAT is now available in 32 and 64 bit versions
    • Changed: RAT is now using Sqlite as the backend database. This means that you'll need to do a fresh install. Or, stay on the version of RAT you're using now.
    • Fixed: Added Shutdown event to the upgrade script, otherwise things like server restarts, etc.. would not correctly shut down the server (Reported by: BoNeZ)
    • Changed: The RAT source has been moved to VS2017, this means that the installer package has changed and you may need to uninstall the old version of RAT first.
      - Your RAT database will remain intact and used on upgrade, you shouldn't lose anything.
    • Changed: The .NET framework is no longer included in the build, but should automatically install for you if you do not have it.
      - This decreases the RAT download size by about 65meg
    • Fixed: Cleaner error handling when RAT attempts to send an email and the email settings have not been configured.
    • Fixed: Random hanging of RAT due to auto ban checks of all players every minute. Players are only checked upon login now. (Reported by: Multiple People)
    • Added: New event: Player Denied Command -- This fires when a player attempts to access a command they do not have permission to access. (Requested by: unit9495)
      - Comes with the new event variable {failed_command} which contains the name of the command they attempted to access and also populates the player_ variables.
    • Changed: Using UTC time for stored datetimes. Please report any date/time weirdness.
    • Fixed: Issue where chat from Discord would sometimes not appear in game as expected.
    • Fixed: RAT News and Webmap should now properly refresh the content instead of always displaying cached content.
    • Removed: RAT no longer handles multiple server configurations (Don't worry, read next entry!)
    • Added: Added ability to load different databases within RAT. File -> Open RAT Database. This allows you to open different configurations. See next item!
    • Added: RAT can now load a database from command line parameters, simply add: -db=PathtoDatabaseFile\filename
      This allows you to run multiple copies of RAT to admin multiple servers at once.
    • Fixed: Airdrop hours can now be set to 0 (off) (Reported by: Ian Lee)
