Dedicated server : responded with invalid data (help)
I updated my dedicated server using the steamcmd method (running the server with desktop shortcut as described here:
to build 1.1109 and played a little but servers matchmaker status said TCP error.

(TCP error has something to do with former Rfactor developer's servers being shut down.
in Multyplayer.json setting "announce host" to false is adviced by studio 397, however this blocks u from joining your own server giving an error saying server responded with invalid data) .

I deleted the entire folder reinstalled the dedicated server.
Now i cant join my server "server responded with invalid data"
("Announce host" : False seems to be standardized when player data is created by the new dedicated server instance.

the solution.

in Multiplayer.json located in your dedicated server / user data / player folder search for this line : "Announce Host":false, change it to "TRUE" (without quotes)
this solved the error and lets me join my own server, TCP error remains for the time being.

Hope this helps others hitting the same wall.
