5.6 Power IRL went out, now server won't start up. Game.eco error



  • As seen above, game.eco has an error in it. I'm not sure what to do with it, or how to get a backup to use instead.



  • Have you put coal in the IRL generator?



  • It sounds like you have a corrupt Game.eco. You can try using Archive.eco which is a game copy made at each startup to try and protect against corruptions. To use it remove Game.eco from the storage folder and rename Archive.eco to Game.eco (case sensitive).

    If that does not work you will need to go back to an older backup in the backup directory and rename it to Game.eco and place it in the storage folder to load. By default the backup configuration file only saves a couple of backups and deletes all but about the last 3. I recommend changing it to make a backup every hour and to save 23 of them so you have a days worth of backups. On top of that you can run a scheduled task of some sort to back up the Backups folder once a day and save those 23 backups somewhere else. This can give you several days of backups to go back to if you have an issue.
