Because of that, I want to force-install the dependencies. However it seems to ignore the --force flag on it.

In the deloy-settings it is set to

npm i --force; npm run build:no-tsc

Is this just not supported or do I need to format it to some other format?

Best regards.

The only thing I can think is wrong here would be that you aren’t using two plain --s. For example, on macOS by default when you type -- in many standard text apps they are converted into an em-dash (). Coincidentally, even on this forum I had to code guard them because this is two dashes: – , even it is transforming them into an em-dash. Note that this forum is third-party software and not written by Render, and this shouldn’t happen on the Render Dashboard’s form fields, but if you typed them in somewhere else and copy/pasted them into the Render Dashboard they may be the wrong type.

Characters are a wild world. What looks like - could be a hyphen, a minus, an en-dash, an em-dash, and probably even more types that I’m not thinking of. Try deleting what you have for the Build Command in the Render Dashboard and re-typing it character by character, and ensure that it is not altered in the process, via auto-complete, or a browser plugin (ala. Grammarly), or anything else of that sort.
