[RCON Tool] ARKon - Desktop RCON client
Hi everyone,

I've created a desktop based rcon client ( To compliment my web based one http://steamcommunity.com/app/346110/discussions/0/530646715637849031/ ). It has the features currently missing from my web client which will be getting them soon. There have been hints in the patch notes there is more to come where RCON is related so hopefully there will be plenty more features on the way. If there are some helpful commands I have missed please let me know.
p.s Please excuse the name .. .way too cheesy.

Trust stuff
I have a long standing rcon tool for Rust named Rusty (http://facepunch.com/showthread.php?t=1350623). Its always hard trusting a new tool but hopefully this might help to ease some peoples minds :)

Issue with the desktop client. I see you have a ionic.zip.dll in there. That right?

Either way errroring out

Sorry about that, there was a dependancy not included which should have been but it ran on my PC as its registered locally. Woops! Re-download and it should work. I would be really greatful if you could confirm :)

The ionic.zip.dll is in there for downloading updates I push out. Updates are not triggered automatically you have to confirm before it downloads. (Same as Rusty) :)

I can confirm that the new zip allowed me to start and connect to my server.

Glad it's working now. Don't release stuff at 3am is the answer to that problem!

Any chance you could add the ability to see the player level as well? I notice this shows in the Ark internal admin console.
