Blue Screen Game Crashes

Multiple members of my tribe have been reporting problems with their game crashing and getting a blue screen error message (can't remember the actual error code) on PS4 PC Non-dedicated server hosted by gPortal.

We have tried, with no success:

Restarting the game

Restarting the PS4

Restarting the Server

We are able to get back into the server (after having to deal with the server search settings resetting) and play for a while before someone crashes again.

This should be top priority on the fix-it list! We've already lost multiple tames due to this!

Same 1142 happens to all 5 in our tribe as well as several tribe allys.

This needs to be fixed asap if not this update then i dunno our patience is at 0

it happens especially ne artic biome for us as well as volcano & lunar.

No rhyme or reason. Our tribe lost gear & several dinos now weve all reported with no help with the dinos return or fix for blue screens of death so far.

We love Ark but this is not supposed to be beta testing at this point.

Playing ark with my wife we are trapped in the farox cave. After the game crashed I loaded back and died due to respawning bears and lost my games in cryopods. This is a heavy loss since they had been with us through all the boss fights with out dyeing only to fall through the earth now I'm trying to get out of the cave only to crash and find my self back in the cave it has become a prison please help us its looking like we might have to start all over.

PS4 official legacy . Since dlc launched blue screens have occurred arctic biome . Definitely a problem , guaranteed when you travel in . Or even doing nothing and just standing there . Easily get min 5 a session and tbh has created a no go zone for tribe . Very frustrating esp when settings aren’t saving since launch . These 2 issues would go a long way to helping us on what is becoming a most enjoyable map

The ferox cave is a no go zone for us, lost too much there already due to blue screen. I find that maybe 1 out of 5 times I teleport I blue screen. Every time I transfer my character to my extinction server....and I mean EVERY time I either disconnect or blue screen. Only about 1/2 the time when transfering to my rag server. It's amazing how little testing must have been done on this map before release. We are basically beta testing it for them but we had to pay to do it.

I found a salution!

 

So I've also been having this problem, of the screen turning blue in a non-dedicated server while playing multi player, an it doesn't help that I have my base in the desert in ragnarok where this tends to happen. 

Turns out that taking off you helmet gets rid of the completely blue screen, but I think all players have to take off their helmets in order to make it work.

It worked for me both times that it just happened, but it may be different for others, I'm not quite sure yet.. So test it out!

It is a know issue for PS4 in general. The PS4 just doesnt have to brains to do as much calculations that are needed sometimes in ARK. Then you'll get a blue screen.

I can remember WC said in the past they cant fix this. The only thing that fixes it atm is buying a PS5. 

 

EDIT: Turns out that a PS5 doenst solve the issue aswell. ARK is just poopty coded.

Oh, because of these things I don't like to play this.. I have a cooler and more dynamic game proposal for you, during the quarantine period, I actively started playing on online casinos platforms, I recommend https://casinotop.at/zahlungsmethoden/paysafecard-casinos/ with an overview of the best PaySafeCard online casinos in Austria 2020, there are all the most popular and sought-after resources with great bonuses for new players, make a choice and register, enjoy the game and at the same time you can easily earn good money from home, good luck!

So I have been having problems with my PS4(Slim) Ark game crashing after playing about 20-30 minutes all the time now. Its been going on for a while. It has been happening since November after the Thanksgiving update. I get a blue screen that tells me to update the game or update my PS4 system software. But neither of those need updates! I have done the uninstalling/reinstalling multiple times, setting my PS4 to its original settings, initializing quick and full (also multiple times), cleaned my ps4, moved it from my system storage to the external storage (back and forth a few times) and everything else the internet says to do. I even thought maybe my disc drive wasn't working properly (ark is the only game i play on disc) and ended up just buying it from the PS4 store and downloading it. The only game doing this is my Ark game. COD games, Blessed, Red Dead Redemption 2, Fortnite, Assassins Creed Valhalla, and all my other games are just fine. I can play them for hours! But Ark is my #1 favorite game and Im at a loss of what to do. I am trying to get the $ up to buy a PC that's capable to play Ark but its taking a bit. Can anyone help me plz? Or tell me if you are also having this problem? I mostly play it on single player (no tribe mates to help on pvp.) Also, if you know of an affordable (like $500-$700 or even 1 I can make payments on) gaming PC that I can purchase? I can't figure out what 1 would run the game for me properly. Thank you!!

@SkyIsTheLimit1089  I am on a PS5 and the same issues have been happening to me as well. Our base is nearly unplayable due to bluescreens. My entire tribe, including myself, has submitted tickets to resolve this, but their response is just to fill out a Google Doc and report it, and so we hear nothing back.

What's worse is that since the update to remove Winter Wonderland the bluescreen won't hit 100% when it crashes, so I have to restart my whole PS5 and relaunch the game, which makes it a 10+ minute ordeal. I genuinely hope someone in game development sees these comments and realizes how prevalent of a problem this is. It's made playing Ark almost impossible, which is really sad because I've been playing this game since beta and love it.
