Is anyone aware whether this (blue circle/arrow below) can be manually modified? I have the time stamp number to hand(meaning I know what it is) and the latestasmupdated.txt file in the mod folder (with the correct timestamp inside)however ASM won't apply it.
I looked in the generic profile/config handler for ASM itself and there is no data on this. Is this aspect saved elsewhere that we could manually adjust?
The background for this is that when trying to join the server, it keeps saying that "Please ensure the Server you are attempting to join is running the latest version of all Mod content "
...despite the client and server having all the exact same data/mod files, meaning it should not be conflicting in anyway.
The only thing left we can think of is that ASM won't see the timestamp of the mod, and therefore doesn't set one(or a correct one) when it hosts the server. As a result when we attempt to join there's *technically* a mod mismatch even though the data is identical.
((Yes that mod is outdated however we need to run the server using that version.))

The value in the timestamp column is not from the file, the file is only used when checking the versions. The value is loaded from a steam query. As the mod does not eist on the store anymore, the steam query returns 0.
When you start the server, you will be warned only that a mod is outdated - do you want to continue. If you say yes, then the server will start and the mod will be loaded as that is part of ARK - not ASM.
When you start the ARK client and try to connect to the server though, that is where you might have problems. The ARK Client will query the server for the mods and will check if you are subscribed to them or not.
How it handles the mods removed from the workshop, I am not sure.
Anything is worth trying, but I do not think this is a server side issue. I think this will be a client side issue trying to connect to the server.
If you want to try launching your ARK server without ASM, there is a runserver.cmd file that ASM creates in your config folder. If you run that, it will start your server without any validation.
Because we need to answer NEW questions. Asking questions that have already been answered takes time away from developing ASM into the best server manager possible.
