[SOLVED] Making the .bat file automatically load the latest autosave file.


Recommended Posts

Okay, I've been doing some googling and I was able to find this piece of code, but I'm not sure exactly how I'm supposed to utilize it in the .bat file for starting a dedicated server in command.

./openrct2 $(ls -t1 | head -n 1)

or

ls -1 autosave*sv6 | tail -n 1

They are from these two threads;

https://www.reddit.com/r/openrct2/comments/6q81jy/how_do_i_enable_autosaves_on_a_headless_dedicated/

What exactly should I write in my .bat file to allow it to open up the latest autosave. This is what my .bat file currently looks like.

cd C:\Program Files\OpenRCT2
openrct2 host C:\Users\Atlas\Documents\OpenRCT2\save\onlinev1.sv6 --port 11755 --headless

Shell scripts are just lists of shell commands - whatever you would type on the terminal is what you write in the shell script. But `ls` is a Unix command so this code looks like it's written for use on Linux or Mac - you will probably have to modify it to use it with a Windows batch script.

I asked about this problem on reddit and a friendly fellow was able to pull it off in powershell. Developers, I strongly recommend you guys add this information to the multiplayer help page on github.

& 'C:\Program Files\OpenRCT2\openrct2' host "C:\Users\Atlas\Documents\OpenRCT2\save\autosave\$lastwritten" --port 11755 --headless

As far as I can tell, that page can be edited by anyone, so you could just add it yourself.
