Problem Description

Issue

I have scheduled tasks on the Palworld server I run which are suppose to do various tasks via RCON, such as broadcast the restart schedule and broadcast restart warning messages via RCON, save prior to restart using RCON, then shutdown the server using RCON. Sometimes it works, but most of the time it does not. So I have the same scheduled task stop/start the app as a backup method. I can connect to RCON just fine and it mostly works when I use it via a terminal. It is just AMP scheduled task of sending RCON commands do not work most of the time.

I don’t know if this is related, but I cannot use /adminpassword in game either. The password works fine for RCON terminal, but not in game.

Any help?

Reproduction Steps

  • Configured RCON Passthrough
  • Used RCON Passthrough
  • Configured RCON Scheduled Tasks

Experiencing this too. Restarting the AMP instance fully (not just the Palworld app, the actual AMP controller) gets RCON working again temporarily.

So the problem seems to be AMP side. At some point, even though the Palworld server’s RCON works when connecting manually, AMP won’t do anything RCON related after a certain amount of time passes or perhaps other conditions happen.
