    This requires SteamWorks.ext.

    The plugin is pretty simple, takes the values from steam.inf and queries the Valve SteamWorks WebAPI. Towards the point for when your server is out of date, it fires the forward SteamWorks_RestartRequested.

    The plugin is to overcome a significant shortcoming in the Valve SteamWorks API, due to a lack of callback. To be fair though, we are doing things a little off label...

    The plugin will check for updates every 2 minutes.

    You could use format=vdf and parse the response as KeyValues. I would think that it would also benefit from using version_is_listable (or up_to_date) instead of checking if versions match.

    You need the SteamWorks.ext include file to compile this plugin.

    This was when i pressed the "Get Plugin" button.



    On a side note, this addon breaks my server, it says there's an update every 2 minutes, after a player has joined up.

    Even tho everything is pure and dandy updated.

    Can you look into this?

    I just reinstalled everything and made sure everything was latest versions, yet it still said it was out of date.

    Im using the latest version found here

    Don't use the "Get Plugin" link, download the smx file instead.

    Will this auto update your server without an update script ?

    Hello KyleS

    Could you check my post, if you missed it.

    It says my server needs an update but there's no update to get, within 2 minutes of restart by the updatecheck.smx it goes into loop again saying update needed.

    If you check up on version, show in picture you will notice that this is indeed latest version, but it still wants to update?
