Non Dedicated Server Help

Recommended Posts

Me and my friend were thinking about running another ark playthrough together and were deciding on a nitrado Dedicated Server or if one of us should just run it non dedicated (we both have the specs to run a NDS). I was wondering if one of us makes it if there's any way to allow the other to log in when the owner is gone and play it anyways, whether that be through file sharing, admin permissions, etc. Any help and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

I'd go with a dedicated server. Non-dedicated servers will only work when the host is playing, and other players have to be near the host. Unless it's been fixed, you also have the SP problem of resources that take forever to respawn.

If you have an extra PC and some basic networking skills it isn't that hard to set up a your own dedicated server, especially if you use Ark Server Manager. You could also run the server on your PC and do the loopback thing to connect.
