  1. Game.ini help/feedback

    I finally have my server setup and running the new DLC.. But am looking for some feedback on my Game.ini (https://pastebin.com/63tNuGfV)

    It just doesnt seem right.. dino's take a lot of damage before dying, plus there are some level 150's right near the spawn location (the beach).. Xp gain seems too high, as does harvesting wood/stone/meat/hide etc...

    Any input on my Game.ini to help balance it??



  2. Apologies, lots of tweaks and re-setting things...

    It looks like i was originally booting up two servers... some sort of mix up with my service.. so i removed it and setup a Cron job.. So all seems to be working and booting now..

    I've added the server to my Steam > View > servers > fav's (by entering my ip and searching for all games on that IP) so can connect that way... just cant see the server in the Ark list in the game..

    Im in the UK and the server is in Germany.. so not that much distance..

    You have double quotes around everything after ./ShooterGameServer but command line args should be outside the quotes...
     ./ShooterGameServer "TheIsland?AltSaveDi


    Thanks for the reply. This is a dedicated host from hetzner.com (im using the server for something else also)..

    UFW ports below... so all ports should be open..

    The only sort of error i can find is in my arkserver-console.log (generated by linuxgsm ), but reading up on net, lots of people say its normal? :
    [S_API FAIL] SteamAPI_Init() failed; SteamAPI_IsSteamRunning() failed.
    Setting breakpad minidump AppID = 346110

    So according to logs.. server is running, ports are open.. but i still cant find my server or direct connect from steam..

  4. help - linuxgsm - Dedicated Server not found


    First off, this is pretty much the first time for me using Linux.. so.. be gentle..

    I've followed the instruction on linuxgsm to install my Ark server, and also opened the required ports.. I've done ./arkserver postdetails, and the results are below:

    So as you can see, by all means.. it looks like its working.. but i cant seem to find the server in the Ark list.. and neither can i connect directly.. Any ideas?
