Not Requiring Password to Log On to Server

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • I set up my ATLAS server and can access it from the server list. However, I set up a server password when creating the server. But it does not require one when selecting the server from the server list & Steam does not show it as password protected in the Favorites. Anyone know I can fix this?

  • Just to clarify, DOAGEN ...

    On the Dashboard page underneath the "Restart ATLAS" button, I see

    Atlas Settings





    Server Password:


    1x1 Map selected

    Currently a 1x1 map is selected. This map does not support grid functions. Grid options disabled.

    Save Button

    I'm assuming we should enter the password into the Server Password box in this section. Seems a safe assumption in any case. When I set it up, The server is active and shows the correct name, but does not require any password at all. I think the issue is that the ATLAS password is stored in the servergrid.json file for a normal ATLAS map created through the server grid editor, while Blackwood maps seem to require a command line argument for the password, i.e. "start ShooterGameServer.exe Blackwood?ServerPassword=XXX?ServerAdminPassword=XXX?MaxPlayers=20?ReservedPlayerSlots=0?QueryPort=*****?Port=*****? -log -server -NoSeamlessServer". Unfortunately, we can't access the command line directly. Putting the password into GameUserSettings.ini (like you would for ARK) doesn't work either. Hopefully they'll get this resolved soon.

    Is there a way to enable the -exclusivejoin option? I can't find the setting anywhere on the Nitrado web interface, but I know it can be done in ATLAS.
