Installing patch for A16 b1.12

Post by Charrison » Wed Jun 14, 2017 11:20 pm

So I have A16 b 1.05 on the server. How do you patch to 1.12?

Do you Reinstall the "Experimental" or Update to latest verion? Will this wipe my game save.

The update hasn't posted on here yet. I just tried installing but it just reinstalls the last build. It'll probably be a while.

As for a new save, you will need to go into your Admin config file and and set a new seed for RandomGen. If you are running Navazgane or want to use the previous seed, you will need to go in through FTP using something like FileZilla, navigate to the save games and delete the folder. Otherwise, you basically have to reset your server using the Reinstall option, then re-install the experimental build.

On a side note, I really wish they would list the build or last updated date for the experimental option.

Actually, I am hoping to continue the game we have running. I know TFP said you don't need a game wipe with this build. Just not sure how the install process on dedi would effect the game save.

It doesn't affect it at all. Just remember that you can't go report any bugs unless you have a fresh save game.
