Nope.What's the difference between DAT and SQL? I'm assuming the only noticable difference is DAT handles drop rates in txt files while SQL uses .sgl.
Thank you for the clarification, that makes LOADS more sense. Is there any benefits for a solo player to use SQL for a server other than the convience of not having to edit text files?Nope.
Both DAT and SQL use the text files for drops, the gsl stuff was a thing I ended up doing later on when I got tired of the text files.
The difference between dat and sql is that one stored the data on binary files while the other stores the data in an sql database (which requires a mysql server)
Maybe this can be of help to you? Watch the first 5-6 minutes, it's without comment but shows everything needed to be done.Hi all!
I know this will seem a bit of a stretch but could someone make a video tutorial on how to really set up a server?
It would make getting things set up so much simpler for those (including myself) that just want to get a quick private server to play with a couple of friends.
I have everything downloaded and tried for the life of me to follow the tutorial but a lot of the steps need some thorough explanations. It just doesn't make any sense. It would be a bit easier to see it done in a step by step video.
I know this is a lot to ask but would greatly appreciate if someone down the timeline could make a video!
