How To: Update to a beta version of the game

Post by Ragonz » Tue Apr 25, 2017 9:34 am

1. Pick the beta version you want, you would do this by going into your steam acount, right clicking factorio then going to properties > betas and selecting the one you want

2. Now you know what version you want go into your game panel and click the beta update button

3. type in the beta version you picked in step 1 (note this has to be identical in both format and capitalization, for example 0.15.X is not the same as 0.15.x) then click execute

4. you will usually also need to update the config.ini file between major updates as well, so enter the configuration files section of the game panel

5. click on configuration editor next to config.ini (for 0.14.x) or ping.ini (for 0.15.x onwards)

6. click save

If the steps above are unsuccessful for you try 0.15.X rather than 0.15.x, capitals do make a difference.

is there a way to make it so when a beta update is released the server automatically updates?
