I have followed the guide(s) posted both here on the forums, as well as the updated guide on the steamcommunity forums and I am still having some trouble getting a dedicated server going.
I'm trying to run the server (for now) on the same computer/account I'm running the regular game on, but the -nosteamclient modifier isn't working.
It's in my .exe target, as well as if I run it straight from a CMD line, but when I run the server exe it still puts my steam account into game, which means I cant run the game to join.
cmd line run
If I run the game first, and then run the server executable, it crashes out siting gameserver API. The proper ports are forwarded (see here)
Am I doing something wrong or does the -nosteamclient not work anymore? Do I need to buy the game a second time on a different account so I can tie it to the dedicated server?
Thanks for the help!
