Server Setup



  • Heyo Peeps,
    I'm looking to setup a sever for Eco. I have a Nitrado server that I used for Ark and I want to convert it to Eco. I was able to switch the game from Ark to Eco and even play on it for a time.

    My problem is that I can't change the settings on the server so that more than one person can play on it. Myself and 5 friends want to play together, but we get Compatible Version errors every time. I have a feeling that it is due to the fact that I don't know what I'm doing or Nitrado is not good for Eco Servers.

    Bottom Line Question: What is a good server service for those of us that can't dedicate a PC to being a server?



  • The first step is to identify any version issues. Eco updates often, and then can have several hotfixes in one day. You need to be prepared to keep the server up to date, or to tell your players to run a unified older beta until you have a chance to update.

    Have you checked the version on the server when connecting with the version of the game on the esc menu?



  • It was a hot fix that was the problem. We were able to get up and going.
