  1. Community Crunch 112 and Dino TLC Preview!

    Just a note guys, we'll be running the contest for the next Crunch. We were late with the thread and had an ansel crash during the week which prevented entries.
  2. Hey Survivors! Welcome to the latest edition of the Community Crunch! The Community Crunch is where we share important things going on with ARK, as well as host contests and showcase creations made by the community! ARK: Aberration! AVAILABLE NOW! Steam on PC/Mac/Linux/SteamOS: http://store.steampowered.com/app/708770/ARK_Aberration__Expansion_Pack/ Microsoft on Xbox One, & Xbox One X, and soon Play Anywhere: https://www.microsoft.com/store/p/ark-aberration/brj422pfv2pz Sony's PlayStation Network: https://store.playstation.com/?resolve=EP0688-CUSA06782_00-ARKABERRATION000 Aberration Roundup! First of all, a huge wholehearted thank you from everyone here at Studio Wildcard to the ARK Community! Since Aberration released we have received a number of kind messages of support for the game and our team. We appreciate each and every one of you; your feedback, creations, videos, live streams, drawings, screenshots, they mean everything to us and we will be forever grateful to the love you show our game. Aberration has been available for a few days now and it has been an absolute blast. Seeing the game do so well on each platform, with so much fan support behind it is incredible. We're looking forward to the weeks ahead and can't wait to experience more of your Aberration stories! In honour of Aberration's release, it's time to offer a bounty! BOUNTY: ALPHA ABERRATION ENDBOSS We're awarding $2000 to the first person who provides video proof of them defeating the Alpha Aberration Endboss on an Official Aberration server! Remember to include proof that this has taken place on an Official Server, you can do so by showing us the main menu which will indicate the server you're on! You can send your entries to [email protected] or Tweet us your video here Dino TLC Preview Now that Aberration has been released the question on your mind might be: what's in-store next for ARK? Today we're excited to share with you the first few images of our Dino TLC update that is currently being worked on. These images are still work-in-progress and are therefore subject to change before final release, but here are the updated Rex, Ape, and Dire Wolf models. Studio Wildcard started out as a small studio and as we've progressed through ARKs development, we've grown tremendously! We've been able to bring on very talented animators and character artists to work on the project. You've seen some of their work in our more recent creatures and expansion packs, and now they'll be taking their abilities and showing some love to some of the original creatures we launched with. We're excited to see where these creatures go with the new advanced techniques and can't wait to show you how they turn out! These three are not the only models that are planned to be upgraded. We have more coming as well but that'll have to remain a Mysterious Mystery for now! Consoles Patches & Play Anywhere Update We've figured out the networking-retail specific issue we ran into with Microsoft! The Windows 10 release accordingly with Play Anywhere and Crossplay will be available on 19th of December! We've cleared the date with Microsoft! We also have a console update in cert at the moment, it'll fix some bugs which were reported as well as adjust some numbers based on the balance feedback we've received for! You can check out the patch notes here: PS4 Patch Notes / Xbox Patch Notes. Ragnarok! Ragnarok Fans! We've got some exciting news regarding the map and its development! In the coming week, Ragnarok will be approximately 100% complete internally, and we'll be releasing a PC update to add in the latest part of the map. We are expecting to deploy this update on Wednesday the 20th of December. The previous Ragnarok update will be making its way to console around the new year, We don't have a precise date as we're not sure on console Cert availability, but once we do we'll let you know.

  5. Awesome news. What timezone are you in? I wonder if we can sync you up with our engineer. Good to here. We're still working on it to see if we have better options/make improvements.
  6. Alrighty guys, no need to run -nomansky anymore. Just using -norhitthread should do it.
  7. What settings did you used to play at before?
  8. Okay guys would be good to know if you still get the messed up shadows and the crash when using the following 2 launch params: -norhithread -nomansky (temporarily) Also, is there anyone who gets this crash -- say every 5 minutes? without using the above settings? Please remember to stay on topic, want to focus on solving this crash [emoji6]
  9. Tip is appreciated Is your sky constantly black?
  10. Hey guys! Can you try launching your steam clients with the following parameter and let me know how that goes: -norhithread You can do this by right clicking ARK in your Steam Library, going to properties, then on the first panel, click 'Launch Options' and put that piece of text in there. Similarly to how you'd use -sm4, or -nodinos, etc.
  11. Linux Bug Reports

    Mind getting me a video of this? Awesome
  12. Alrighty, is it okay if we contact you via Steam to see if we can work this out?
  13. How reliably are you able to get it? Is it within a 5 minute window sort of thing for you?
