[0.17.65] Dedicated Server server-settings.json Bug

Post by tgaze »

Hello,

I just started up a server and noticed a bug that you may not be away of. Here are lines 17 thorough 19 of server-settings.json

Line 19 is the password. Notice the error calls out server-settings.json:19

"_comment_credentials": "Your factorio.com login credentials. Required for games with visibility public",
"username": "",
"password": "",

If you use a password that has special characters in it, the server will not start.

The password was "]?a^Vo"l07Gh" at the time of the test. This was a valid password for factorio.com and for logging into the game client, but could not be used for initializing the server.

Best,

tgaze

The file must be valid JSON.

Code: Select all

"]?a^Vo\"l07Gh"
