Any Fix In Sight For "Joining failed - could not retrieve address"

Recommended Posts

Join failed: Could not receive address (Xbox)

Every time I try to join an official ark server it says (join failed could not receive address) this has been going on for months now and is very frustrating, especially because there seems to be no fix. I have tried almost everything. Please if you have any suggestions or idea on what is going on let me know.

Guys Can anyone help please, EVERY official server I have tried to join I keep getting the same message "JOINING FAILED COULD NOT RETRIEVE ADDRESS" I have tried different things that I've seen people talk about on forums and online but none have worked. I have just downloaded ARK Genesis and haven't yet been able to play it. If you have any suggestions please let me know as I'm stuck in john radcliffe hospital and will be for a while. Thanks.

Hey when are they gonna fix this game? Do the devs even know this is an issue that's now several years old effecting a large number of people? 

As you can see from this threads date it's been an issue for years.

At this point I would have to wager WC:

1. has no intention of fixing it

2. can't fix it

3. it's not their issue to fix

In any case, I don't think it will ever be fixed.

Join Failed Message

Hello,

My friend and I are having a problem that we cannot find the solution for. He runs a dedicated server from his pc and then we all play on our xboxes. This worked fine as recently as winter 2019. However, when we tried this past week the game doesn't load past primalgamedata_bp and then the message join failed pops up and kicks us back to the title screen.

Does any one know of any fixes for this or have any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

Hi to all, hope I have copied this link correctly, I have done as shown in the video below, and it worked! It may not go in immediately as he says, I had to select my server several times and join, thereafter no hassles.
