Your dedicated server launcher is really great! The only issue I have is that the mods don’t seem to load. I can’t seem to figure it out. I have them in the appdata directory under mods, I can load them fine in a normal multiplayer game but I can’t get them to load through the launcher. It’s actually only one mod, trying to make it as simple as possible :)

Made an account to post here. The tool is nonfunctional now, it never makes it past "starting server" and trying more than once results in an unhandled exception and crash. I just spent 4 hours trying to setup the server with SteamCMD, which I'm experienced with, but was completely unable to. I tried this tool and it also did not work, I don't understand what I'm doing wrong and I give up, I just set up servers for 3 other games with no problems but Factorio wants me to go fuck myself.

Hey, just wanted to chime in saying I can't play the game from the same computer I'm launching the server on.

My friend is able to connect to the server without any issue, but I get the error message:
Couldn't establish network communication with the server.

Is there anything special I need to set up to get this to work?

Thanks!

Oh man, this thing looks awesome! I can see you've put a lot of effort into this and I respect that as a programmer 8-)
I really wish I checked the forums for this kind of stuff, because I ended up making a batch program to do this for me (whoopsies)
Which language did you make this in? How difficult was it to make? I'm interested in the programming side of things (as well as running over some spawners with a tank)

Looking at the github, it's C#.

oh, thanks for this great tool! I tried few ways to start my own server on Win 10, and only your soft works for me. Sometimes it shows bug as described above, but continue works.
