Hello,

thanks for nice tool.

I just wonder. Is STOP command also supposed to save game (if so its missing in command description)? Or is map saved directly by Factorio during shutdown?

I ask coz saving on STOP command doesn't work properly on my server. Every time save operation is unfinished save and file is corrupted.

Is there any timeout for save operation?

Would it be possible to add a function in the auto complete shell to get the current factorio server version ? like 'factorio --version' something like that ... would be great :)

added "version" with the latest commit https://github.com/Bisa/factorio-init/c ... e841cc4371 (checkout the master branch, I did not bother to add a new release yet)

Script fails to start for 14.12 due to the removal of the autosave interval and number parameters.

I also stumbled upon the changes concerning autosave now being configured through server-settings.
Was installing a new Factorio Server on Debian 8 and couldn't get the init script to work.
Thanks for the hint, I changed the files according to the pull requests.

is there any way to make the script auto restart the server after X period of time? I am having desync issues with my server on an ec2 server running with a lot of mods. the only way that it seems to fix the problem is to just issue the "service factorio restart" command every ~12 hours or so. I am not super familiar with linux or ec2 so i am not sure what the best way to get the command to be reissued automatically on a specified timeframe

i think i have it working with crontab, which i just figured out. we will see if it works. side note, i was running out of ram on my ec2 instance and i am not sure if that was causing the desync issues, but we will see if it gets fixed

While the server is running, does the mentioned pid file exist?

Got quite a disturbing bug..

When i write
service factorio help (Services etc. everything added)

i get the following:

Code: Select all

/opt/factorio-init/config: line 2: $'\r': command not found
/opt/factorio-init/config: line 6: $'\r': command not found
/opt/factorio-init/config: line 9: $'\r': command not found

/bin/x64/factorioctorio binary! /opt/factorio
(if you store your binary some place else, override BINARY='/your/path' in the config)
here he tries to access "/bin/x64/factorioctorio" ? Why does he try that...checked the config and the init script but there is nothing there which could do this...;$

Server is ubuntu 15

Hi, not sure if you resolved this already (I'm not visiting these forums much lately - please use the github issue tracker if you run into this issue still, have you tried a fresh install of the script?)

Bisa,

Please help me out. I'm running a ubuntu server at home and I'm trying to setup a headless server. I'm still new to linux, but I know how to run a headless server. But I read everywhere I should use your init script in combination with the updater from narc0tiq. I can see why an updater would help me, because I manually have to unpack new versions now. But I don't fully understand what your init script helps me with. It will start my factorio server on boot. But is seems to run as a service? how do i manage my server then?

Currently I'm stuck, I can run the script, but it tells me the following:

Hi, (sorry for not responding sooner) - it would be helpful for others that debug your problem if you gave us the output of your factorio-current.log (you might even be able to find the problem yourself in it) if I may suggest you could always upload the log to pastebin or attach it here.

Shameless bump as version 2.5.0 now includes the ability to download the latest headless server from Wube to effortlessly install factorio on your linux server.

What's the deal with the ../../ in the path configs? Isthere a reason this is there?
