  • - Users can specify minutes before shutdown; the manager will send messages until shutdown, then proceed with SaveWorld and DoExit.
  • - On application start, auto-start on crash will stagger checks for servers with Auto Restart on Server Crash enabled, taking up to 1-5 minutes depending on the number of servers.
  • - Fixed a bug where the player count was not updating due to a previous update.
  • - Ascended Server Manager process priority will now default to low to ensure resources are utilized by the servers and account for high CPU usage.
