how can i set up 7D2D server with experimental A18?
This host provider only provides steam release build versions of games, it does not offer experimental builds or custom builds. This is a limitation of the console system being deployed, and also allows for easier troubleshooting for the staff when they know they're dealing with the closest thing to a release candidate of an Early Access game and not something labelled "experimental".
Download the latestexperimental dedicated server build to your PC. Rebuild your server on arkservers. Use FTP to overwrite the files on arkservers with those of the latestexperimental dedicated server build. This should get you setup to run A18 experimental.
I tried the above and it didnt work. I have contacted support and asked them to add it to the server, we will see if they respond.
If you're attempting the above method, you'll want to make sure you have your FTP settings in the control panel setup to not replace files.
That above method also makes it to where you'll have to manually update the program by redoing the process each time TFP pushes out an update. It's a largely unsupported process, and you'll need to be familiar with manually doing all of your settings as you won't be able to use the control panel for the game.
