It is meaningless, because it works: pufferd@ubuntu:/root$ cd /var/lib/pufferd/servers/f83cd2b8-7eff-451f-9470-1728141c392b pufferd@ubuntu:~/servers/f83cd2b8-7eff-451f-9470-1728141c392b$ ./Hurtworld.x86_64 -batchmode -nographics -exec "bindip 0.0.0.0;host 12871 diemensland;queryport 13871;maxplayers 20;servername My Hurtworld Server" -logfile gamelog.txt Set current directory to /var/lib/pufferd/servers/f83cd2b8-7eff-451f-9470-1728141c392b Found path: /var/lib/pufferd/servers/f83cd2b8-7eff-451f-9470-1728141c392b/Hurtworld.x86_64 The simplified templat does not work: { "pufferd": { "type": "srcds", "display": "Hurtworld simple", "install": { "commands": [ { "files": "https://steamcdn-a.akamaihd.net/client/installer/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz", "type": "download" }, { "commands": [ "mkdir steamcmd", "tar --no-same-owner -xzvf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz -C steamcmd", "steamcmd/steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir ${rootdir} +app_update 405100 +quit", "mkdir -p .steam/sdk32", "cp steamcmd/linux32/steamclient.so .steam/sdk32/steamclient.so" ], "type": "command" } ] }, "run": { "stop": "quit", "pre": [], "post": [], "arguments": [ "-batchmode", "-nographics", "-exec \"bindip 0.0.0.0;host 12871 diemensland;queryport 13871;maxplayers 20;servername My Hurtworld Server\"", "-logfile gamelog.txt" ], "program": "./Hurtworld.x86_64" }, "environment": { "type": "tty" }, "data": { } } } Is the server running in a special development environment? Maybe lack of access to some resources? In addition, this is a game with early access :\ When you can run the servers in the docker? This may solve this problem.
