  1. Step 1: Open notepad Step 2: Type in: net stop LicenseManager Step 3: Save file and make sure to replace the .txt with name.bat Step 4: Right click file and hit create shortcut (IMPORTANT) Step 5: Open up shortcut properties and under advanced select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR (IMPORTANT) Step 6: Place shortcut wherever is convenient for you
  2. If your interested, using c# I've programmed an application that gives you a graphical interface specifically for backing up Ark files. It supports backing up cluster files and save files at seperate intervals, supports setting custom intervals and custom max number of saves as well as support for manual saves and marking things as milestones. I'm working on a feature to automatically through just a few clicks rollback to any specified save file. It even automatically updates your servers message of the day with a custom message that can include things like the current date/time when the last backup was and when the last change to the servers ini files was (Whether or not it's stable) It even minimizes to the system tray and is built specifically to use the least amount of RAM/cpu as possible and the code only runs for a few milliseconds every given autosave. It also has a built in event log which you can click to copy, this includes every action from backups to message of the day updates to any errors encountered. On my computer even with it open (unminimized) it uses no cpu and just 16.1 mb of ram. I had only used it for myself but if your interested I can package it up and put it somewhere for download :) Also if anybody is interested I've managed to get a cluster server working pretty much beautifully via a little thing called syncthing.
  3. Hey! Sure! When I have time probably this weekend I can do a full write up, if I forget don't be afraid to dm me to remind me. For now all you need to know is the following: I haven't figured out how to get multiple servers running on one computer because of the whole licensing stuff but for multiple computers I'm using a software called "syncthing" https://syncthing.net/ to synchronise the 'cluster' folder in the server files. And In the command prompt after starting the servers I use net stop licensemanager to make sure the servers don't randomly die and I use a application I created myself to automatically backup the server config, saves and transfer data. I can upload that somewhere if it sounds interesting. As a bit of a fun thing I also made it automatically update the message of the day. This has very quickly turned into an ad for that . Anyway DM me for more info or wait for me to get around to making a full write up or just ask any questions you have now. I'm happy to help!
  4. This is for Crystal Isles. If you want the dinos to spawn on other maps you have to modify the spawn zones in the codes. Check the useful links I posted in the main post.
  5. There are some irregularities in that things like commas and some newline indicator that my computer doesn't understand but I'm going to chock up to rtf (I'm assuming you don't have \par at the end of every line) Are you sure it's going in the right place under your ini? It should be under the [ServerSettings] header if I remember correctly.
  6. What is a .rtf file (Not in the sense of what is the extension but in the sense of why is it being used for ark config)? Is that just survivetheark forums messing up?
  7. Thanks for pointing that out, I've added a warning in the original post. I've also added ini codes from THETRILLOBSTER and a few others Sorry for not responding for some reason I stopped getting notifs on this thread!
  8. Sorry for the late reply! I don't actually know whether or not it makes a difference, I'll run some tests and see if it does in fact make a difference. For now use the one listed in the wiki. If it doesn't work then try _C! Good luck and if you have any more questions I'd be happy to answer!
  9. Hmn, not sure I'll see if I can get a code for that soon. Where would you want them to spawn?
  10. Giant turtles are working on the win10 version so I imagine that yes there is a very good chance they work on XBOX, however there is now way to tame them because the parakeet fish swarms that you need will not spawn via ini for some reason. As for the deathworm I'm not sure on that one, I give it like a 60% chance.
  11. Hey there! Any idea on whether or not there is a way to disable that infuriating 2 pressure plate limit without using mods? Ini configs? Thanks, have a great day!
  12. This is something I would love to see added in even as an ini option for singleplayer and unofficial!
