Run as admin after changing mods,i think it creates a temp file of the config. Which doesnt always get overwritten (unless running as admin)

hi, i am having problems setting up a dedicated server with mods. I have followed all these instructions but still do not se the server with mods. I can create the dedicated server without mods. I also can't run the start_server_initial.bat as administrator and get the error message windows cannot find 'server\wreckfest.exe'. I hopefully can get this sorted out with some of your help.  :)

Hi, I can't tell ya how set server to run mods, but might give element's Wreckfest Server Manager a try. I know Space like to use it.

Be sure to read the guide on how to install manager:  Steam Guide: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=713910223

Did you remember to remove the # before the mod= ? I always forget it and wonder what I'm doing wrong :D

Right click the initial and click edit. What it says in there? It should be like this:

@echo off

IF NOT EXIST server_config.cfg (
    copy initial_server_config.cfg server_config.cfg
)

start /B server\Wreckfest.exe -s server_config=server_config.cfg


Also where your server exe is located and where are your .bat files located?

sorry i am completely new to dedicated servers and pretty much Wreckfest :) i don't fully understand the last bit you wrote. I have just the MOD name(number) after the mod= but it doesnt start the server with mod just without. Could you explain a little more about B server\Wreckfest???????? sorry to sound non technical, it's because i am :)
i have the server manager software now and added mods in there but when i start server it shows up without mods still
