Non Blocking save feedback

Post by paquerette »

Hi Guys,

Do you have feedback about the non blocking save feature ?

The blocking save is really annoying, so I would like to try this out.

Thanks,
Paquerette

Works only on Linux, and the feedback I've seen on this forum is that it works.

there's a corner case where saving the game manually while an autosave occurs causes the binary to segfault, I'm waiting on source access from kovarex so I can look into it.

I think I've read that it spawn a second factorio process to handle the save, the server needs to be linux or mac os x, and the windows client autosave is disabled.
Is there a need of addition UDP/TCP port to open ? (I dont think so)

The process is indeed just forked** just to handle the save while the "parent" process keeps the game running, so no, there shouldn't be any need of anything else.
**btw, this is also the reason the option can't work on Windows, as there is no equivalent to fork() function.

Well, the server crashed 😂

After doubling the ram, it's running smoothly :)
