Rings Games not Auto Starting

Post by dad2boyz »

Love the fact that v7 runs as a service. Was always a pain to login so the application would start-up.

However, since upgrading to v7 I haven't been able to get my ring games to start up automatically.

I've tried:
  • Toggling the auto start.
  • Cloning a ring game.
  • Creating a new ring game.
Has anyone else seen this behavior?

Thanks,

Bob

Sorry, I believe the issue is the server doesn't start automatically. The service runs and admin is available but the game server requires a manual start.

System tab -> Server Settings -> Auto start server at bootup -> Yes

It is set to start automatically.

I've tried toggling the value, restarting the service in between.

Are you referring to auto-starting games after you manually start the service? In that case you do have to go into the admin console and click the Start button. And doing that will start all the games that have their "Auto Start" setting enabled. Or are you referring to auto starting everything after a reboot? That should work if that system setting is active (which apparently it is according to your screenshot).

When the server is rebooted OR the service is stopped/started. The server does not come online automatically.

I have to go to the console and manually start the server. The games with auto-start then begin.

I'm unable to reproduce that. I logged into my Atlantic server dashboard and told it to do a soft reboot. It took a minute to get a dropped connection message. And then a couple minutes later I could log back in and all my ring games and tournaments (the ones with Auto = Yes) were back online.

Then I logged directly into my server using RDC, pressed Alt-F4 and selected "Restart". It began the shutdown process and booted me out of RDC. I waited a minute and logged back in. All my auto-start games were online.

Click the Error Log button in the PM Service Manager and see if there is an "AutoStart" error listed.
