      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

    Official SurviveTheArk Community App

    Greetings Survivors!

    The first version of the Official SurviveTheArk Community App is now live on the Google Play Store! (iOS Version coming very soon) The app was created to bring our community members an easy to use interface to interact with our forum right on your mobile device... but wait there's more... anyone that is playing ARK on an Official PC server with a Steam account linked to our community forum will also enjoy in-game Trip Wire and Baby Hatching Push Notifications! So that means that you don't even have to be in-game to get notified when your base is being raided or your new creatures have broken from their eggs!

    HOW TO LINK YOUR STEAM ACCOUNT:

    It's super simple, just go to your Account Settings Page and then click on the "Steam" button to sync your account. The Push Notification feature is only available to regular members. Those in the "Early Bird" forum group will need to use the forum a little before automatically being bumped into the regular "Member" forum group.

    BUT WAIT THERE'S EVEN MORE..... NITRADO:

    I've been working with Nitrado and this week they are going to implement the feature on all of their ARK Private Dedicated Servers! So those of you that have your own Nitrado servers just need to follow the steps above and you too will enjoy these awesome notifications right on your mobile devices!

    This is just the first step into bringing you guys some awesome new ways to enjoy ARK and rest assured that we are working on many more!

    User Feedback




    I just don't like the app. It's boring and lifeless.

    I can only read threads from devs about additions and fixes yada yada but I want to read it all from the salty opinions to the sweet new suggestions. 

    I've come to love all ark everything even the previous little dios attacks that plague PvP servers. 

     

    I'm just going to stick with the website for now.

    Hi survivors,

    With version 243.0 the devs implemented the new feature to receive web notifications. It is already implemented here in the forum, but can also be used for private servers. In this tutorial I will show you how to do it.

    1) Prepare game server for notifications

    • Make sure you add "-webalarm" to the command line of your start script. If you are running a hosted server with g-portal, nitrado etc. you have to wait until they implement the feature
    • Secondly, you have to create the AlarmPostCredentials.txt file in the /ShooterGame/Saved/ folder

    2) Security key and listening script

    • The previously mentioned text file must contain two lines
    • First line has a security key which is optional to use in the listening script, but required to have it in the text file, no matter what it looks like. It can be even "aspojasd" if you want
    • Second line specifies the URL where your listening script is stored, waiting and ready to receive the post information by your game server

    Example file then would look like this:

    Th4t5my53cr3tC0d3!
    http://myurl.com/my_ark_script.php
    • Now you need to setup a script that is able to work with the following HTTP POST which will be send URLencoded:
    • key=Th4t5my53cr3tC0d3!&steamid=76545465465498489489&notetitle=Example%2BTitle&message=Example+Message
    • The message and title are URL encoded, so make sure to decode them in your script

    3) Example script

    As there is no general solution how to deal with the notifications, as you guys all have a different set up for server, database etc, i will just provide you an example script which you can use to modify it further:

    <?php
    if($_POST["key"] && $_POST["steamid"] && $_POST["notetitle"] && $_POST["message"]) 
     {
     $key = urldecode($_POST["key"]);
     $steamid = urldecode($_POST["steamid"]);
     $title = urldecode($_POST["notetitle"]);
     $message = urldecode($_POST["message"]);
     
     if ($key == "Th4t5my53cr3tC0d3!")
     {
     // Here you can do anything now, since the code is correct and everything else is provided, too.
     }
     else
     echo "Invalid key";
     } 
    else
     echo "Invalid request";
    ?>

    With that script you are now basically able to do nearly anything. You could think of sending your members an e-Mail or chat message in your forum. You could go even further and send them a whatsapp message or anything else, as long as you have implemented the needed API and you are able to link the user's steam ID with an email, cellphone number etc.

    Enjoy :-)

    Tom

    10 sept 2017 "! (iOS Version coming very soon)"  Today 11-12-2017 no ios app :-(

    I wouldn't worry too much about it. I just tried downloading it on my Android yesterday & couldn't. And from some of the comments here (didn't know this thread existed) it needs a lot of work still, even in the feedback at the Play Store people were saying they were having issues with it.

    Anyone care to update us non-twitter having users?  Or fax over screenshots? 

    @flamronSo I checked on Twitter, scrolled through @Chris tweets and saw one talking about it but didn’t see anything for a specific ETA for iOS. I could have overlooked it since I was leaving work but I was unsuccessful in finding anything beyond what I already knew. I replied to the tweet to chris and if I get an answer I’ll post it here. 

    EDIT: I went back to November on his Twitter and found only two tweets related to iOS app. Scrolled through both tweets replies and didn’t see anything related to an ETA for iOS release. Again could have missed it. But I did look and didn’t see anything.

    Classic. Post on this site, guy says check Twitter. Twitter has old info, guy updates twitter to reflect the same information that was in the old twitter tweet. 

     

    @Chris - why the runaround?  Just say in this post there’s no update. C’mon man...

    You know I get both sides of it. @flamron I would love to have one centralized location for information and to me it would be easier for people to find for themselves rather than asking constantly. Also for Twitter they are just going to have to Tweet a link to the forum which will hopefully increase views and people joining as well as growing the community making the experience better for everyone? Just my thoughts on the matter. But I accept they are doing what they do for their own reasons and for all I know it is better than what I know or at the very least it is what works for them? It is what it is and if I get hung up on it, it'll drive me crazy so I just accept they will do what they will do and I'll just have to play along or start my own company, design, develop, complete, sell my own game and then I can do things how I want to do it haha.
