Sparcmx,

Have to tell you this is an amazing tool and your support of it is nothing short of legendary..
I have been using the previous version, before I installed any mods and was able to spawn items and dinos with no issues.

Once I added some mods, I couldn't understand why they didn't show up in the list, then I saw the "You need to Upgrade" message listed over and over and went and got the latest installation file. I just installed it over the top of the old one and it didn't seem to have any issues.

So now, I start Ark and then start Ark Commander and I can spawn items and loot crates, but NOT DINOS (neither standard nor mod ones).

Any ideas?

 

NEVERMIND: After stopping and restarting a couple of times, it suddenly started working.

Awesome!

Here's a rather ambitious idea on my part. If anyone who is not familiar with the use of ark commander and would like to explore its uses and see how it works. I do stream once in a blue moon, and would not mind hosting a stream dedicated to such an endeavor, And those who are fluent and experienced with the use of the commander would be welcome to drop in and share their wisdom with those of us who are not.

Strange new bugs making Ark Commander unusable currently.  Which really sucks because I love this app.  Whenever I press the CTRL key in game it spawns a loot crate of some kind with boss portals.  I have no idea why it started doing this as I've never seen these crates before.  It also moves me back to Ark now if I press CTRL while in other applications which is EXTREMELY crippling as I use that key a lot in other apps with Ark in the background.  Anyone know why this is happening and how I can make it stop?

Also the scrolling around inside the interface is really annoying.  But if I turn off DPI scaling in compatibility options the options gear icon gets clipped out of the application and it not longer scrolls all the way off the top of the screen but just sticks half-rolled up at about 1/3 of my screen space.  Is there a way to rescale the UI size to fit better?

The alpha mosasaur is still in the wrong category. Should really be in the alpha predators category rather than reptiles.
Also the Diplo and Lystro egg kibbles are named differently to all the others. Nothing urgent but would be nice if it was fixed.

Fixed, my ocd was twitching also :P

On point #1, Debby Saurus and I spent a couple of hours pinpointing this one and I'm happy to say its fixed.
I have also added options to disable CTRL binding and F-Keys.
On #2, I'm working on DPI scaling after the next release.

I ended up getting it to work, is it possible this will ever have the feature where before you click something you don't have to be in console on ark? Like you can literally just click it from the program itself?

An RCON connection to a server will achieve this but not on singleplayer mode.  GiveItem commands are sent directly to the sever rather than the Ark game window.
Speaking of which, by design Commander emulates a virtual keyboard which writes strings to the Ark window, any other way is too invasive and will trigger BattlEye.

hoi sparc... there have been quite some updates to Resource Crops.
thanks for your work!

Gotcha :) I've added this to the next Mod table update.  (There's quite a few updated mods, going to be busy...)
And your welcome

Massive Animal Feces:

"Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Items/Consumables/PrimalItemConsumable_DinoPoopMassive.PrimalItemConsumable_DinoPoopMassive'"

Absorbent Substrate:

Ermmmm...This one doesn't seem to be anywhere..:/

Also, the Veggie Cake doesn't have a category.

I am not 100% sure what's going on with the Ark Commander Version 1.03.01i  I downloaded and did a re install of the program and the dino spawn table seems to be all of it's categories and is just out right disappearing when I try to expand an entry. 

In the Ark CommanderMX Data folder (My Documents), remove DinoEntities.xlsx and MODItemFilter.xml
Run Commander again and see if it goes back to normal.

Ok this forum kind of realllllly sucks at handling quotes and browser compat.  I couldn't quote at all in Chrome and I can't include my original post in the quote with your reply to put the whole thing in context.  Side rant there, sorry...

To put the quote I have from you above in context you were replying to my having issues with the CTRL key moving me back into Ark from other programs and when in game spawning strange loot crates.  You responded very quickly, thanks for that!  But unfortunately my CTRL key issues remain unphased.  I've uninstalled Ark Commander and deleted the Ark CommanderMX Data folder from my docs and the Ark Commander folder from Program Files (what was left after the uninstall) and then downloaded the new "Ark Commander Setup 1.0.3.01i.exe" installer from sparcmx.com and installed again.  No change noticed but it seems to have kept my custom key config changes for which button calls down the Commander (I don't use it with Alt).  I wasn't expecting that from a full reinstall so I'm suspect something it being retained somewhere else such as in the registry? 

I'm also starting to notice that the F keys (F1, F2, F3, etc) don't work in other programs with Ark Commander running in the background.  Guessing this has to do with the feature on the home page about disabling the F hot keys but I don't have anything bound to them in Ark Commander and I don't see any options to disable them.  Am I doing something wrong?  Halp!  And thanks again!  Even in this state where I'm having to launch the app to spawn something and then exit as soon as I'm done it's still an amazing tool for administrating an Ark server.  Huge kudos!

 

EDIT: Figured it out!  I've never played with the custom commands section on the far left.  I went through and selected Remove Binding on each hotkey binding sub option and that clear it out!  No more CTRL key mishaps!  =D

Now I've introduced a new problem with my tinkering.  All of the new structures in the last patch are no longer listed!  Doh!  I'm sure this one is self inflicted, I'll troubleshoot a bit more.

Edit2: No luck, I don't have any of the new items but all of the old ones are show up.

I made new problems. XD

@Glass The update that contains your fixes hasn't been released yet.

Because this bug can be annoying I'm leaking a beta that addresses this issue, but be aware that there are new unfinished items on the GUI.
This is Pre, I won't assist those who have issues with this build :ph34r:  https://goo.gl/RSShTD

Oh!  Now I feel silly.  Thanks again.  :)

 

EDIT: Playing around with the pre-release a bit this morning, I like!  I'm very interested in how the RCON mode will work but it looks like it isn't quite functional yet.  Looking forward to it!  The F-keys and CTRL key issues as well as my new thing where I was missing the new items is all fixed in this pre-release.  Thanks again!  You do good work.

I'm finally back in business it seems :) PC issues suck!! So I should be able to start helping anytime I find something that seems off again. So how does the TTS work? Would I just say, "summon level 200 rex" or....? lol Also, be on the lookout, Annunaki is making a new mod, (isn't ready yet), to fix a lot of issues and start off clean without having to wipe their old one out. So that will be a big one to add once ready lol
