  1. I know it seems scary but you can do it with expert mode and adding the ini file. I just started adding ini files to increase stack sizes of specific items with ConfigOverrideItemMazQuantity. During my research I happened across people mentioning that the item stack multiplier(ini that increases everything by a multiple) can really mess with some things that shouldn't be stacked such as armor and weapons. Just something to consider. Also I used ini files to change the pickup timer to 3 days instead of 30 seconds... the timer itself changed but it only lasts like 30 seconds before the option to pick up disappears.
  2. This is the xbox forum, you may be able to find help in the forum for mobile or by filing a support ticket. Im not sure if the mobile game uses the same support ticket system as the other platforms.
  3. You need to file a support ticket with proof and they will get back to you someday. No one here can help you.
  4. If you are going to go through all that trouble you might as well just download the steam version and download mods legit. Im pretty sure you can use a controller too. As a side note that sounds like a good way to get your xbox locked out of xbox live forever if you care.
  5. When i say cheating profits the whole tribe thats a generalized statement not specific to this situation. Thats being said they have absolutely no way of knowing that your whole tribe wasnt involved. For all they know you all farmed for what ever was sold, one of you made a throw away account to sell it, and then you split the money. They cant just assume you werent involved. They cant just punish one person because then someone will just make a new throw away account and just continue cheating.
  6. You dont need to have proof, the gms have the proof, someone provided a ticket with proof attached to it. No one needs to contact you or explain. It is what it is. They cant be that involved with each case. It takes them weeks to answer their support tickets as it is. Theres no reason for them to know or care that you just recently merged. It has to be all or nothing. When 1 person cheats a whole tribe benefits and there is no way to find out which person or people were specifically involved and which accounts are just scapegoats with the real cheaters hiding behind them. They recieve proof of the cheating by a specific tribe, that tribe is punished, end of story. In a perfect world it would be awesome if they could be more involved but they have thousands of servers across many platforms to deal with. You weren't perma banned along with the tribe wipe? If not you're lucky. Selling ingame stuff for real money is a big deal and thought it was suppose to be a perma ban for your account and whole console. It would be nice if they told you which person it was but I have no idea if they can or not. As a rule of thumb they will not discuss any action taken by a GM. Usually even talking about actions taken gets the thread locked or deleted
  7. If you dont like official rates then dont play official. There are thousands of unofficial servers rented from the same company that hosts the officials available to join. They have a variety of settings to choose from too. Official PVE isnt really PVE anyway, its passive agressive PVP. If you want a real PVE experience then unofficial is the way to go. Officials are meant to be for large tribes of people with lots of time. The more people you have the more man hours your tribe can invest, the better you will do. Taking turns raising babies and looking after long tames and other grindy things. My server has no auto decay for structures or dinos, 1 month before claimable or demolish allowed, x3 tame, x6 baby mature, halved baby food consumption and plenty of other setting meant to make it so solos and small tribes can advance through the game without no life-ing the game. Also no pillar spam. Not advertising just trying to let you know PVE can be so much better. Theres plenty of servers out there with much higher rates than mine even and the amount of changeable options is just mind blowing for unofficial. Theres a forum just for server advertisement and theres a server list in game for "unofficial pc sessions". Some are open to the public and others are private and password protected so you would need to be invited, each having their pros and cons.
  8. Rip. You need to pick your tribe better. One person can mess things up for everyone and thats the way it needs to be. Do you really think just banning one person would work? People would just make a bunch of throw away accounts and use them to cheat and get away with it forever. They absolutely will NOT do a "rollback" for a single tribe. A rollback is them literally shutting down the server, going into the servers save log, choosing an old save, and starting it back up. Any progress anyone else on the server made after that save point would be gone forever. Rollbacks are reserved for when a server or game issue causes harm to many of the tribes on the server. Why would it have mattered if you were on at the time of the wipe? They do not wipe a whole tribe without proof. They recieved some sort of proof your tribe was cheating(fake or not) and the decision was already made. Your word against someone elses proof means nothing. Its not a discussion or a trial.
  9. Cheats do not destroy artifacts. Im not sure why it didnt spawn but you can try leaving the area and returning a few times to see if it respawns. Otherwise you can spawn it in using cheats.
  10. Most likely your mount is over its carry weight. Just like your character it has a weight stat. When you get on the weight of your character gets applied to the mount also. Pteras have a very low weight stat, other types of flyers have slightly better weight but have less speed.
  11. Saying crashes are usually memory leaks is a huge assumption and really very vague. Yes there have been places where you could pinpoint an issue like Vikings Bay on Ragnarok. The problem is that even with that mega thread about the issue and the thousands of support tickets, that area still causes crashes. It did get better but as I mentioned before you should never be able to rely on a game to crash. As for extinction it is horrible for crashes and even causes servers to crash on a regular basis. The player crashes have no common area and the server crashes are usually related to a vein or OSD but with no common location causing the issue. Which all boils down to the poor design and optimization of Ark in general and it just being too memory hungry. My players who play on the regular XB1 expect to crash at least once while they are on for about 3 hours, no matter the map or location, that is not a memory leak. Ive played nearly 3k hours of ark and Ive really enjoyed the game but just because I enjoy the game does not mean it runs well or WildCard does good work. They dont deserve abuse but they do deserve the truth. No one hears the name WildCard and thinks "hey thats a quality dev I trust".
  12. When it comes to disconnecting yes that is true, as I mentioned a stable wired connection is a must with ark. Its also true though that for some reason that I dont really understand Ark is super unforgiving when it comes to the players network. Small network issues seem to cause huge issues with ark when you can play other games fine. When I speak of needing the X1X I'm talking about full game crashes. When the game literally force closes and you are sent to the xbox home dashboard. This is a separate issues from a disconnect. I do mention also that the X1X will not save you if you have a poor connection. So in that regards I agree. My main point to you was that crashing has been an issue for a long while. A well made game should never crash to dashboard and I cant think of a single other game that has ever had 10% of the crashes that Ive seen on ark. This is the issue i have with wildcard. As I play on my unofficial servers with my community I get to watch as suddenly words pop up on the screen "player X has let the Ark" then a few minutes later "player X has joined the Ark" then gotten to see them type in chat about how they just lost all their tames at osd or vien because they crashed out or they just lost all their gear because they crashed while flying around. I have very few DCs on my servers, but the crashes are way too often (because they should be never).
  13. I've hosted a 2 server cluster from Nitrado for over a year and I hosted an xbox hosted player dedicated for over a year before that. In that time I have learned a few things. WildCard does not care about console, having the X makes a huge difference, having a very stable wired connection is a MUST. Any drop in wifi connection strength because of someone else on your network can easily cause you to DC. Any spike in bandwith usage on a server like multiple people logging in can easily DC someone with a weak or slow connection. Im no expert but 8mbs seems low to me, especially if you have other who use your connection. Ark is super demanding for an xbox and it will never perform well without a ton of work from wildcard. No the Devs do not look here. These are "community forums" as they mention across the top. Thats means these forums are for the community to discuss topics and help each other out. You will not get a dev response. Submitting a ticket on this issue will get you nowhere either, its just screaming at deaf ears. I agree though that its a load of bologna that you cant play the game as intended. The game does not run well on the regular xbox and it seems they add improvements to make it look better on the X but not make it run better on the others. Also they allowed too much freedom on their servers from the get go. There needs to be stricter dino and structure caps to help keep things smooth. I honestly dont ever expect them to fix this. So you have 3 options. 1. Stop playing and get a refund. If you have digital you can call Microsoft support and get your money back. Discs can be returned or traded in. The game is poor quality and taking a break from ark can relieve a lot of stress. Theres nothing wrong with not playing something you dont enjoy. 2. Get an Xbox One X. You shouldnt have to buy a better console to play this game but it really really helps. Even on my low population unofficial servers my players without the X crash. Especially on extinction. While myself and the others with the X only crash on super rare occasions. The X does not save you from a DC if you have a weak connection though. 3. Play on an unofficial server. The amount of tames and structures on official servers are too much for any console to handle. For pve this can be a great change but for pvp it can be boring as some servers may not be as well populated. There are thousands of unofficial nitrado servers to choose from with many different settings. You will still crash but sooooo much less. This has been an ongoing issue on Ark since day 1 on xbox but it has become much worse on Ragnarok, aberration, and extinction. It is also a constant topic on the xbox forums. The game is sold for xbox yet the only xbox that can handle the game is the X.This is old news and no ones fault but Wildcard. The game should not fully crash to dashboard multiple times in a few hours because someone doesnt have the best console. Im not sure what platform you play on but just fyi console players do not have the option to turn down graphics to improve performance. This game, as every single xbox one game is required by Microsoft to run on all versions of its console. If it does not run on a regular xbox one then they are falsely advertising the game. The game must be developed for the regular X1 then they have the option to enhance it for the X1X. It almost seems like wildcard started developing the maps and updates around the X1X and ignoring the X1 which is wrong and no ones fault but WildCard.
  14. Dont even own a pc let alone one that could handle Ark. I enjoy playing games on my xbox and have a good Ark community built up there. My phone, tablet, and xbox cover every use I can think of. I understand that a PC games better and has more options but I have 0 interest in it.
