How to delete your Empyrion recent server history

Post by jesterjunk » Fri Feb 01, 2019 8:14 am

If you have ever wanted to know how to clear your recent server history this is how you do it:
‌‌
‌‌
‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ▎Close Empyrion
‌‌
  1. find your steamID3 here:
    https://steamidfinder.com/
    ‌‌
  2. go to the proper folder in your steam directory:
    Steam\userdata\<YOUR_Steam3ID>
    ‌‌
  3. go to the server browser remote history folder:
    Steam\userdata\<YOUR_Steam3ID>\7\remote
    ‌‌
  4. delete the serverbrowser_hist.vdf file
    ‌‌
‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ‌‌ ▎Start Empyrion
‌‌
‌‌

Didn't work
Tried again with both Empyrion and Steam Launcher shut down, double checked task manager to make sure they were not running, still didn't work.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding what these instructions are for, I'm trying to clear out Empyrion's server history.

I have just tried it again, and it still works.

If you have more than one steam account that you have used with Empyrion,
be sure that you are in the correct directory for the account that you want to
remove the Server History from.

For me, the correct directory is:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\11271785\7\remote

The number highlighted in the screenshot below is the steamID3 number that is
unique to my Steam account.

After ‌‌ deleting serverbrowser_hist.vdf

When you log into a server again, the History file will be recreated, and will
only have that server in it, until you log into another server, which will then
also be added to the list.

The data inside the freshly recreated history file will look something like this
when it only has one server in the list:

Code: Select all

"Filters"
{
	"Favorites"
	{
	}
	"history"
	{
		"1"
		{
			"name"		"173.88.188.135:40007"
			"address"		"173.88.188.135:40007"
			"LastPlayed"		"1549485740"
			"appid"		"383120"
			"accountid"		"0"
		}
	}
	"lastupdate"		"1549485740"
}

ok, got it working. Manually edited the history file rather than deleting the whole thing.
