    Feature request: Error reporting for the Dedicated server (-server)

    Situation:
    Dedicated server runs 24/7, with a separate process monitoring it.
    Whenever the server process ends/stops (Either via a timed/programmed/scripted end, or a crash), the monitoring makes sure the -server is being restarted.
    (Steam client is not running, as there's no need for it running anymore.)

    This works fine, except for one situation, where the server reports 'Connection to steam lost. Exiting.'
    The way this error is being reported is in a dialog box, that will wait forever for an operator to click the 'Ok' button. So, without operator input, the server will not end, and thus will not be restarted.

    Request:
    Could this error message be changed? So it no longer needs operator input? Put a timer in the box that closes it after some seconds?
    Or, leave it out completely? The logs can show it occurred maybe?

    Additional comment: This issue is being dealt with beautifully when using the ClodWatchdog client. It monitors steam as well and somehow it manages to suppress the error message, or silently click it.
    All nice and cool, but as have the -server running without steam and without the watchdog...


    Thanks!

    Yeah, back when I made the watchdog, I had to add a check for any popup dialog showing up because of that same "issue"

    Not all of the messages have been suppressed:

    This happened while the server was starting up.

    Looks like this works fine now.
    Can keep the server up and running now, and if steams loses connection, the server can and will now be restarted automatically, properly.
    Thanks very much!

    My first thought, when I saw a new post in the thread was "Oh no, DD_FT found yet another one ..."

    Glad that that seems to have been the last.

    Thanks, this has been a really annoying issue in various contexts over the years. I will be very happy to never see it again!
