    Just to let everyone know, yes, I'm updating RAT for A17. The current version of RAT is *NOT* compatible with A17. While there are some work arounds and whatnot that can provide some functionality, if you do things wrong, people can't connect to your server (this is due to RAT changing your serverconfig.xml file to match A16, not A17).

    If this is happening to you, you can go into the RAT Settings, and disable RAT from changing your serverconfig.xml file.

    However, please know that the current versions of RAT out there, do NOT support A17. I'm trying to spend my time getting a new version of RAT out that works the way it should for everyone. =)

    Sure, it can't hurt to have a list. Feel free to post them in this thread for now.

    Things I have fixed already:

    All new serverconfig.xml variables
    Player chat
    Telnet stream parsing
    Server stats display (clicking on the FPS in the status bar at the bottom)
    and other things I can't remember off the top of my head. So feel free to post anything else you run across. =)

    Player List not showing online players
    Grab Bags not working (made sure my BCM and ALLOC was updated)

    on another note, is the A17 exp only Navzgate or does it work with RanGen?

    Player lists appear to be working for me, so please let me know on that after the new release

    Grab bags are broken until a new update from Stompy as there is a problem with teh give command.

    Also, RAT will work just fine with RandomGen, in fact, I've never tested it on anything but Random. ;)

    Yeah, you need to do a fresh install of RAT. Please follow the instructions here: [DOC] - How to Completely (and cleanly) Uninstall RAT

    This means you'll need to fully resetup RAT (Sorry about that), but... shouldn't be too bad once you use RAT's import function for the server config.

    Get it here: 7D2D RAT 2.0 Alpha -- 64 Bit

    Still some work to do on a few things like inventory and grabbags, but... overall things are good.

    Thank you for your hard work dude. People may not log in and comment, but you really do provide a valuable service with RAT. Where can I donate? As someone who mods 100's of hours for free and has been hosting 7DTD for almost 6 years, I understand and am grateful that you provide and have not abandoned RAT.

    Got that first donation in! I have a question as well. I have run into an issue where I have my dedi config good to go, I have launched the server and all is well. I shut down the server and start RAT as I always have, then I start the server batch file. It tries to load a fresh world and reorganizes the format of the config file from the fun pimps layout. It also used jffgaming settings. I thought it only imported info FROM the config you set up to RAT. So I got a fresh config file, set it up how I wanted, imported it to RAT successfully and saved. Then when I started the server it tried to create a new world again using my correct info AND it changed the layout of my config file again. The thing is I already had a saved world under the exact same settings. So why didn't it just pick up where I left off? If I turn off RAT and copy my original config back again with the same info RAT had, everything is fine. I have never had this issue, maybe I am missing something. Thank you.

    When you save the settings within RAT, you're saving to the RAT database. When you start the server FROM RAT, RAT writes out a new serverconfig.xml file and starts the server with that. If you start the server with the startdedicated.bat, its going to use whatever the last written serverconfig.xml has in it.

    Short version, if you're using RAT, you shouldn't use the startdedicated.bat to start your server. You can, but you need to stop RAT from editing your serverconfig.xml file (in the RAT Settings), etc. You just need to chose how you want to admin your server and run with that method. =)

    Thanks! I have always used RAT with me starting the .bat file but shutting it down with RAT or in game. Thanks for the info!
