Due to how Nuclear Dawn Dedicated Server is currently set up on Steam, it is not compatible with Steam betas via SteamCMD. Fixing this now would cause issues for people trying to install the non-beta server version.
Because of this, the alternate download method mentioned here is required.
You must use the tool DepotDownloader, of which the latest version can be acquired here, https://github.com/SteamRE/DepotDownloader/releases/tag/DepotDownloader_2.1.0
On Linux, it requires a fairly recent version of the Mono framework to be installed, around 2.8 or 2.9 I believe, or higher. (sorry!).
To download the server files for the beta, including converting an existing install to the beta, run DepotDownloader.exe with the following parameters:
-app 111710 -dir <installdir> -beta linuxbeta
DepotDownloader.exe -app 111710 -dir c:\nd_beta1 -beta linuxbeta
mono DepotDownloader.exe -app 111710 -dir ~/nd_beta1 -beta linuxbeta
Note that for servers, existing mods such as Metamod:Source and SourceMod will likely be incompatible, at least on Linux servers. I will update them sometime after the beta is up.The beta client and server are not compatible with the current release!
Please keep this thread to only issues with actually downloading the Beta server.
