    Thank you. I just bought a new copy of the game and made a new steam account and have the server running on a virtual machine on the new account, no errors starting server but now I get this that the console is spamming "set to 4"

    update I ran it without the .bat file
    this is the crash report...

    SteamAPI failing means that Steam's client is not logged in on your machine.

    Once you got the oxide files make a new folder where ever you want it. copy all the game files for the forest in that folder. (in steam you can right click game go to properties and in properties there is something that says show local files or something like that). After you copy game files unzip the oxide files in there and when prompted to replace files select yes.

    next there is a file called
    _start_example.bat
    this is the file to start server. you can right click it to modify it. (change server name and players ect.)

    be warned the oxide server is not fully functional and will crash and you cannot connect.(well u can but it's much harder than you think). I know they have been working on fixing some errors for this but I don't think they will all get fixed unless the forest has a stand alone server files like rust or 7 days 2 die.

    I've not heard of any "crashing" issues, but the not being able to connect is something I am looking into.

    uhm... After that whole errors. its working now..... Probably issues with my steam. - restarted it .... I realllly dont like that point to open the seerver with my account ... the whole time switching accounts / re-new the sign in with auth code.... and then i cannot start if the server is running.... Hope that changes soon

    Ah yeah, you need to be signed into Steam still. It's a client that uses the lobby system, so it needs Steam to make the lobby. There is no way that we know of yet for clients to see servers that aren't lobbies, but we're still looking into it.

    ....... im already about to throw my pc outta my shitty window. Steam doesnt want me to login on 2 pcs. i have to Reeefreeeesh every 10 seconds with a new fuckin auth code, MY ACCOUNT JUST COOOULD BE HACKED , yea..... fuck steam forces ppl to use this SHIT ..... well. yea so i cannot run server while im in the game on my home pc , is there aaaaany client thing. like steam cmd, that is used for steamworks api. or the lobby thingy?..... so that i donjt have to be logged in the whole client ....

    I'm not sure, but our hope is either for an official dedicated server (tons of less for us to workaround) or to find some way to create servers that clients can see without the lobby system.
