Server won't start/stop, other bugs

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:

  • So i just started renting the server yesterday and it will not start at all. I changed a few settings, fiddled with expert mode a bit, then decided to to the reinstall to see if that fixed anything. The main problems i got are that the server just won't start at all. Then i gotta force stop it cuz it won't stop normally at all either. The other problem is that when i go to my engine settings I get this message at the top of the screen, " The content of the engine setting "user-settings" can not process properly. Clear this setting with the corresponding button. The data contains the following content: "%lines%"". And finally the last problem is that when I had expert mode on to try and change some specific things it seemed like it didn't work as it said that the files were not found etc. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks all.
