Just rented a dedicated server [HELP]
Hello, just rented a dedicated server for me and my friends to play on, but it seems to just keep restarting over and over again, this is what the console reads out to me.

EnemySenseMemory - this entry is from pre-alpha16 and outdated (removed), if u start an alpha 16 server u need a config-file up to date without this entry.

Tyvm this is what i was looking for, not sure how to get a proper config file as i've reinstalled the server from my provider and it says that it is running alpha 16, which makes you assume it would also use the proper config.

Where could i get a proper config file?
