I'm just getting started with learning this amazing API, and I'd really like to be able to test new builds of a plugin I'm working without having to restart the stupid Ark server every single time.

I assumed that was what the config option "AutomaticPluginReloading" was for, so I set it to "true" and restarted the server, but I'm not able to install newer versions of my plugin while the server is running because the current files are in use.

Have I got this completely wrong, or am I just not doing it correctly?

Many thanks for your help.

You need to name the plugin like so "name.dll.ArkApi" for 'AutomaticPluginReloading' option.
