Hi,
I host a server from home. It all works fine, however, when there is a game update I get version mismatch error when connecting to the server.

The client is updated, I can join and play on other servers.
I think the cause is Steam updating AA while the server is running.

In the past ive had to delete local content and re-download and setup.

Anyone had or think of a fix for this issue without having to reinstall?

Cheers, MuFFy

SteamCMD is what most providers use. I'm not sure this will resolve your issue, nor can I provide input on how to make it work for your situation. Common knowledge of computing and file rights management would say your server will have to be shut down to update it as most files are read-only when they are in use.

Just to be clear are you playing on the same steam install as the server is running from?

Yea, I realise files are locked while the server is running. But with the server running all day and steam auto updating, and for some reason it allowing the update to go through even though some of the files are locked has me dumb founded.

Having said that restarting the server hasnt fixed the issue, and performing a file verification (with the server down) hasnt rectified the issue.

No hosting off a different machine then I play on.
Just tested that the update 'kinda' worked by using the client to join a known updated server.
