Since the first patch last night my server has been going down every 1 to 3 hours citing a "new update found!". Every time the client server version is still 313.23 and there doesn't appear to be any new patch notes. At first I thought wildcard was just redeploying the same content because they messed up the release, but I haven't seen many complaints about servers constantly toggling on and off like this. I had updates at 8:03 pm, 9:01 pm, 10:01 pm, 11:01 pm, 12:01 am, 3:01 am, and 5:01 am CST. If there is something wrong with my ASM, I don't know how it could be my settings because the interval changed between the 3:01 am and 5:01 am "updates" from 3 hours to 2 hours and I was asleep then and couldn't have fiddled with any settings to change the behavior. Before this started happening I had wild wipe on startup selected and an automatic reboot scheduled MWF for 5:00 am. I shut off wipe wild on reboot and stopped the auto reboot since it was being unstable. There is still a dino wipe scheduled using the interval slider set for every 24 hours, but that shouldn't be tied to a reboot or be running so frequently. I haven't recently changed any other settings so I'm at a loss as to what could be causing it other than Wildcard.
Just had another "update" at 9:01 am. This morning, after my post, I turned off the server and ASM and cleared all background programs like steam or discord that were related to Ark or ASM, then restarted the server. No good, still randomly restarting to install an update it already has.
Got some advice from Natclanwy on discord, "ikth there was an issue a few months ago where some users would experience repeated updates. The fix was to turn off the output steamcmd to progress window. I have it disabled on my server and haven’t experienced the repeated updates so it’s possible that WC introduced a similar issue with the latest patch."
This is apparently located in global settings. I've disabled it and restarted the server. I'll return if it's still randomly "updating".
