optional setting of a rcon command to terminate a server

Post by DopeEx » Sun May 19, 2019 10:28 pm

Hello, I am a new customer of this wonderful piece of software.

I wish you could optionally specify a rcon command for stopping a server, which will be executed when you click the stop button.
As far as I have noticed, the server specific commands are stored in the profiles, which unfortunately doesn't help if you run a server that isn't present in the profiles. The desired option would make it a lot easier to terminate unsupported servers.
In my case it is currently about Avorion that I must always stop via rcon command, because pressing the stop button always stops the server hard.

EDIT: I have to stop the server via rcon to stop the server correctly, the stop button would just kill the server as far as I can see.

Wow a really very active forum here. I don't expect anything to be implemented here immediately or at all, but because there are no 20 new posts per hour created here, I think an answer to a paying customer would be quite nice.

Yes, I'm sorry, I meant to reply to your post and got side tracked. It's a great idea. I need to look at how easily I could implement it.

It'll be much easier for me to create a profile, and if it's rcon commands are identical to an already supported game it should work fine, but I'll do further research and add it as an option.

Thank you for your business, it is truly appreciated.

Is there anything new here?
Alternatively I would be happy about an Avorion profile, because I still can't use the panel properly with this server. I had already described the problem in the first post. ;)
If anything is needed that I can deliver I will help.

I should have a beta with an avorion profile done by the weekend.

Beta build with avorion graceful shutdown support. Make sure you have the following command line argument settings for each server as the panel uses that to find the server.ini and grab the rcon password.

Code: Select all

--galaxy-name my_galaxy --datapath X:\Servers\Avorion\galaxy
Manual Install: http://redirect.brainless.us/UGCC/2.16/Deploy.7z
EzUGCC: http://redirect.brainless.us/UGCC/2.16/EzUGCC2.exe

Thx.
I have now installed the version and set the profile for it. Have you tried it yourself or how do you create these profiles?

With the Avorion server I can't start the server directly from the exe instead a bat script will be executed which means I can set the parameters but they have no effect. I've tried it anyway but the server is not stopped correctly but it still kills the process.


Forget that no idea why he didn't do it in the first place now it works! :D

Could it be that he just shuts down the server cleanly when players are on it? If I start the server without any players on it and then press stop it doesn't seem to send anything and just kills the process.
