Xcopy isn't giving the errors vs 2022 gives errors when trying to compile the patch server as a release build debug works fine.What errors exactly?
Could this just be xcopy command failing?
Not sure about xcopy, while I don't know if it comes with all versions of windows, that all it does is copy the output executables to the ./bin/x folder.
Well, if you don't plan to serve more than a handful of players, a 1vCPU and half a gig of ram should get you by.
If you host the db (if using sql) and other stuff in the same machine, would be another story.
The issue I see with xcopy is the addaccount won't open due to the dll it uses being copied over using it. If I manually drag the dll file to the folder with add account and replace the one xcopy placed there it works so it's weird.
Hypothetically a 10th to 12th gen i9 and 64 gig of ram with sql running local to that machine would host a decent amount of players then. I don't plan on running any servers this is all hypothetical as I am just curious about the optimization. Although I think running a sql server externally would be a better idea for security.
