Good Morning,

I wanted to install the Project Cars 2 Dedicated Server on my Ubuntu 16.04 Server. But it looks like something is wrong with the Package.

Installing Command


steamcmd +login MYUSERNAME MYPASSWORD +force_install_dir /gameservers/pcars/pcars2 +app_update 413770 validate +quit


Info Message


Redirecting stderr to '/home/surtic86/.steam/logs/stderr.txt'
[ 0%] Checking for available updates...
[----] Verifying installation...
Steam Console Client (c) Valve Corporation
-- type 'quit' to exit --

Logging in user '*@*' to Steam Public...Logged in OK
Waiting for user info...OK
Update state (0x5) validating, progress: 0.00 (0 / 0)
Success! App '413770' fully installed.



It will not install the Server Correctly it just create the Folder "pcars2"

pcars2 folder


steamapps/


steamapps folder


appmanifest_413770.acf
downloading/
libraryfolders.vdf
temp/





When i install Project Cars 1 Dedicated Server the Info Message looks quite different with a Progress 100.00

I have the same issue.
If i try platform windows and use app-id 413771 i will get all windows files for dedicated server.
i have also used the app-id 413772 (Dedicated Server Linux) i will get this message:


Steam>app_update 413772 validate
ERROR! Failed to install app '413772' (No subscription)

Same for me ... problem on install with Debian.

When trying to install with "anonymous" (as described in the pdf documentation) :

Connecting anonymously to Steam Public...Logged in OK
Waiting for user info...OK
ERROR! Failed to install app '413770' (No subscription)

When using my SteamId, i got the same content as you.

Ubuntu is based on Debian, which maybe explains the same problem.
I posted the problem in the developer forum, too.
A dev is checking.
It seems that it is Linux distribution dependend.

Devs are aware of the installation issues.

Anonymous login download doesn't work because the app is only available to game holders.

Do you really replaced MYUSERNAME with your Steam account name?
It normally asks for your password and if Steam Guard is enabled you have to put in an ID which is sent to your mail address.

Maybe a caching mechanism or something else.

Hm... i have deleted the Cache from SteamCMD.



rm -R ~/.steam/appcache/*
rm -R ~/.steam/depotcache/*


Eventually Steam has not Pushed it to all his Servers or something else.

I don't know if it is allowed to do this.
Can a moderator or dev help, please?
Or simply give me the permission to provide the pcars2 Linux DS. Thx.

Just as an FYI on this (I am using SteamCMD on Windows, not Linux yet), but as Bealdor mentioned, you need to log in to SteamCMD with a profile that already owns the game to INSTALL and UPDATE the server, but once it is installed, you can use the anonymous login to run the DS. If you use your Steam Profile to run it, it will disconnect the minute you try to run the game on another system.

Hope this gets clarified in the updated documentation.

I have yet to try to setup our Linux based server, but on Windows with SteamCMD it is working as expected.

As stated, use SteamCMD adn oyur normal Steam Login ID. Then issue the command app_update 413770 validate That will download it and place it in which ever directory you had specific when oyu first set up SteamCMD.

Then, log out of SteamCMD and log back in again as anonymous. After that, launch the DS. I have been working on mine all day without issues (on Windows). Once I have my settings all dialed in I will be getting another instance runing on a Debian box.

I just fiddled around with it a bit...

The appid 413770 (Project Cars 2 Dedicated Server) has 2 depots:

413771 - Windows packages - working
413772 - Linux package - "No subscription"

So the problem is that the access rights to that depot are wrong - It should be public tbf.

I understand that the devs have many important things to do right now, but this can be very easily fixed(!) and it is a problem for a almost every racing community because nobody can set up proper servers, let alone begin to write scripts for them.

The depots are set to subscription as the DS is only available to users who own the game. That is why it is necessary to use your valid Steam ID to install and upgrade the server. In order to.simply run the server once installed, you can use anonymous login.

You cannot download/install/update using anonymous login.

That's not the problem. The Linux server is not available for anyone right now.

Yes we know that! And it's also not working with a Account who owns pCars 2. That is already proved by me on the Starting Post and a Page before in this Thread.

I think m00lean mean something different.

Well I just tried it:

Steam>force_install_dir ./pcars2_ds

Steam>app_update 413772 validate
ERROR! Failed to install app '413772' (No subscription)

Steam>app_update 413771 validate

Okey interesting. I have testet it with Project Cars 1 Dedicated Servers and there i get by both "invalid platform". So it's looks like a miss configuration or so...

It works if you use the appip, not the one for the depot: 332670

Steam>app_update 332670 validate
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0,00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x3) reconfiguring, progress: 0,00 (0 / 0)
Update state (0x61) downloading, progress: 40,14 (10110345 / 25190591)
Success! App '332670' fully installed.

But for the pcars2 ds nothing happens:

Steam>app_update 413770 validate
Update state (0x5) validating, progress: 0,00 (0 / 0)
Success! App '413770' fully installed.

I just used the depotids to test what's wrong.

You can install the PC2 DS fine, you just need to use your steam user and password until they make the DS open to all users like they did with PC1 DS.
.
I'm not sure in the timeframe for this and it's a slight inconveinience as it means my steam password is stored in install and update scripts but I'm sure it'll happen SMSoon

No. Not on Linux. That's our problem here. We have no DS for Linux at all.

No you can't on Linux !
Something is wrong with the package contents.

Where do the Linux servers on this list (http://cars2-stats-steam.wmdportal.com/index.php/servers) actually come from?
Is there any other way to get them or are they using another Distro?

It is no problem in general.
I was able to install the DS under Kubuntu 16.04 LTS in my home LAN and also on a Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Root server last week.

EDIT: And I am still able to do so (usrename encrypted):

Using SteamCMD to get the DS files or using files you get from WMD ?

I think WMD members have the DS before it was published on Steam.

No, I had the same problem as you till to my post on the 22nd:


Problem is fixed, please try again.
But you have to use your steam account, not anonymous.

And I use steamcmd.sh as it is described in the documentation:


Then to install the dedicated server via SteamCMD while running as the steam user:
● cd
● cd steamcmd
● ./steamcmd.sh
● login anonymous
● force_install_dir ./pcars2
● app_update 413770 validate
● quit
Or you can just run it all on with a single command
● ./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir ./pcars2 +app_update 413770
validate +quit
Of course the “force_install_dir” directory is entirely up to you.

Instead of anonymous your real steam account with which you play pcars2 have to be used.

And I installed it 5 min ago in a new test directory without problems.

I just tried it with a complete new instance of steamcmd to avoid any caching errors:

Could someone please send me a zip with the ds? Pretty please?

Tested it again on my Server Ubuntu 16.04 in Germany Frankfurt and on my Local Machine in Switzerland. And on both i get nothing also when the message says Success... but there are not the right files in the Directory.

I use the Official SteamCMD package for Ubuntu. Also i can install pCars 1 Dedicated Server or Counterstrike. And yes i use my Normal Steam Login where i have Project Cars 2.

I cannot help you guys further, because this is something for the devs now.
I can only say that it is no problem in general for the Linux DS installation.

Hello.

Linux installation issues were investigated further. There were more Steam setup steps required to make Linux binaries available to all possible game packages out there.
Can I ask those who had issues to try it now and see if it's fixed?

Thanks
