  1. Scratch that I got it working so the deal was that I was missing a line apparently. After googling for about 5 hours i found a steam post that said if you want dinos to spawn you need to add the following line at the top of your Game,ini file [/script/shootergame.shootergamemode] (include the brackets) then follow it with the add npc stuff. Also not sure if it helped but i also had to go into the properties of the file and save it as a read only as it seemed to fix some formatting issues. Now all the override stuff like override prime meat to stacks of 100 work where before they did not. Hope this helps someone else. i will include my Game.ini file which has aberrant creatures spawning on ragnarok in various places and forces prime, fish, and mutton to stack to 100 Game.ini
  2. Well that's fantastic so to run command lines I have to pay a 3rd party to run it on their servers @Jen Can we get this fixed so a windows 10 dedicated server can have full command and game.ini functionality like Nitrado's servers seem to have. On another note the engram auto unlocks did not work even with a new character also I found some lines that were supposed to add Abberation spawns to ragnarok but they don't appear either. The only thing I have working as intended is the stack variation and none of the Game.ini stuff is working at all. I will attach a copy of my Game.ini if you want to check it. Any help would be appreciated Game.ini
  3. Thanks after some trial and error i got the stack override stuff to work the engram stuff doesn't seem to be working but that might be because it doesn't work retroactively. Now if i wanted my Win 10 dedicated server to launch with an event like the extinction chronicles using the command lines any idea on how i would go about that? The wiki was very vague and didn't point to file just said hey it looks like this.
  4. For a WIndows 10 server acting as a dedicated server for xbox players? Not a steam server. Can you tell me where to find these files I have one on my screen now but edits I make to it are not followed when I play on my xbox. I mainly make certain engrams leanabel at certain levels and have a stack override for resources but so far nothing shows up in game.
  5. I would say not just less options than a nitrado server but a windows 10 dedicated server feels absolutely neutered when compared to command line prompts you can run on a nitrado server that hosts the same xbox players. As for clusters and moving characters around I know a workaround by moving files in the ARK folder but that leads to problems if you go back to maps and is very messy. My question becomes why was the upload survivor button removed from the game if you run a dedicated server its the easiest option as I dont have the hardware to set up a cluster of servers that I may only use once every so many months. I would think a Windows 10 version that has crossplay would be seen as a platform to expand and lessen the divide between what the steam people can do and what consoles can do. I'm thinking official mods being released on windows 10 that xbox players can use if a dedicated server is running them but all thats a dream if we cant even get Win10 servers to have half the option available as a 3rd party server like nitrado does. Whats the reason for this?
  6. Agreed the amount of stuff a nitrado server can do for a 3rd party game mind you that its own dedicated servers cant makes me think nitrado payed them a butt load of money to purposefully under-develop their in game server options. I started a topic about this stuff in general discussions if any body wants to to go chime in there. hopefully we could get some attention on this.
  7. So I run a Windows 10 dedicated server and was wondering if there's a way to edit the Game.ini file so the game will adhere to them properly. I have edited my .ini file to give engrams unlearnable to us on extinction at certain level and also to mess with stack sizes but none of the settings work. i was wondering is there any way to make this work without throwing money away for a Nitrado server
  8. There is a way to move files around to transfer your character then upload your items and dinos to take stuff over. It would be so much easier if a upload character button existed but wildcard is a bit dense at times. Here is the method I found. Anyways I found a solution to my problem to anyone that wants to transfer characters on Windows 10 dedicated servers. First off before you try this load up the map you want to move to on the dedicated server this creates a save folder in the new map. 1. If you look in the folder where Windows 10 installs ARK ("User name"/appdata/local/packages/studiowildcard(string of number)/localstate/saved/maps) 2. In the maps folder in the map you are playing on are a set of files with a .arkprofile file extension. These are your character saves for the map. You can open them with notepad and look around to find out which file belongs to who. 3. When you find the file of the characters you want copy it and then go to the new map folder (the save folder of the map you want to go to) and paste it in there and Voila! Your character is now in the new map and better yet you have a copy in the other ark as well that can send dinos back and forth to each other and Imprint buffs work across both characters (I tested it on a Raptor). Now it is important to note I only took the .arkprofile file over and didn't mess with the tribe profile files. When you join the server you will be at the spawn screen just click to spawn where you want and you will re spawn as your character. If you want to maintain the illusion of moving characters over you can delete the .arkprofile and the .profilebak in the old map save folder and if you want to go back or update your original just copy and paste to the folders and your characters should be updated. Hope this helps anyone else. You miight have some tribe issues if you go back so be wary as in your wont be in your tribe on the old map when you get back from the new map
  9. I play ark, off and on and having come back to the game for the homestead update I still find a lot of really bad design choices either purposefully or not missing from my Windows 10 dedicated server. 1. Inability to upload your character to travel to another map. As a dedicated server that operates for just a couple of friends I don't have the real world resources to set up a cluster (nor even the knowledge if a windows 10 cluster is possible) instead I would like to just upload my character shut the server down and then restart it on the new map and download my character. Why this is removed from dedicated servers is beyond me. Note that this makes leveling your character up and playing through the entire game impossible on non-Clustered Dedicated servers. Doubly so on platforms that cant cluster. 2. Inability to make changes to the Game.ini File on Windows 10 Dedicated server. The stack size override limit looks good too bad I can only use it on console if I pay for a server. Same with enabling auto learning of engrams on certain maps (the inability to learn SE engrams on extinction is stupid). It should be a simple matter to get windows 10 dedicated servers to allow changes in Game.ini to be followed without having to pay money for a Nitrado server. 3. The inability to have events ongoing on my server. All other servers have the ability to set events as permanent from Easter to the Ark-eology event where animals spawned in different colors. Why can a Windows 10 PC acting as a server not do that. To have paid for the same game as everyone else and then to have most of the features locked behind another companies paywall seems very wrong and I would love to see some care for the Windows 10 platform as a hybrid pc/console server option. Wildcard can we please get some updates for dedicated servers before another DLC gets sent out. Does anybody else have any work around to this stuff or is there no solution but to pay Nitrado money to fully access Wildcards game.
  10. Great news on the further content I was a bit worried as ATLAS does not look like my cup of tea. On the exception to the pick up rule can we get a server option to get rid of those or just not have those as exceptions as I often find myself putting some of those very Items in bad places and would love to be able to pick them up and readjust as oppose to rebuilding a whole new tek generator or industrial forge.
  11. Thank you for the reply I was beginning to doubt any information coming my way at all. So your saying only Nitrado, Steam and of course Official servers are able to cluster this makes me think the upload character button/process isn't broken so much as its being withheld. Anyways I found a solution to my problem to anyone that wants to transfer characters on Windows 10 dedicated servers. First off before you try this load up the map you want to move to on the dedicated server this creates a save folder in the new map. 1. If you look in the folder where Windows 10 installs ARK ("User name"/appdata/local/packages/studiowildcard(string of number)/localstate/saved/maps) 2. In the maps folder in the map you are playing on are a set of files with a .arkprofile file extension. These are your character saves for the map. You can open them with notepad and look around to find out which file belongs to who. 3. When you find the file of the characters you want copy it and then go to the new map folder (the save folder of the map you want to go to) and paste it in there and Voila! Your character is now in the new map and better yet you have a copy in the other ark as well that can send dinos back and forth to each other and Imprint buffs work across both characters (I tested it on a Raptor).

If you want to maintain the illusion of moving characters over you can delete the .arkprofile and the .profilebak in the old map save folder and if you want to go back or update your original just copy and paste to the folders and your characters should be updated. Hope this helps anyone else.
  12. I am currently running aberration as a dedicated server on my computer (Windows 10 cross play version) and play on my xbox. However I want to move to Ragnarok and want to upload my character and some of my creatures. Now when i go to the beacons or even the obelisks I have no session in my cluster thus I cant upload my character. I have some bred dinos that have the imprint buff on them and I really don't want to lose that nor them nor do I feel like going to Ragnarok and just starting from scratch. So how do I upload my character without seeing any other servers in my cluster. If not possible how do I get my computer to see other servers.Also is the upload character button going to be put back in? I have looked around and found no real answers to this issue or the info was dated to sometime last year and I am looking for some current information. Any help would be appreciated.
  13. So yeah this (Crash to desktop from splash screen) has been happening to me quite often recently. The only thing that works is to delete Scorched earth and then re download it but that's a 5 gb download every few days to play on a dedicated server for a couple of hours. It seems to act up after I play games on steam also the xbox live app on windows won't let me sign out when ever ark is acting up not sure if these are related but once I see one problem I know the other is there. Any info on a fix or an update would be amazing.
  14. So here are some suggestions I would like to see all the fliers get the dive speed buff like the griffin but minus the dive bomb it would add strategy to fliers in a dog fight and sooth over the speed discrepancy between that causes the Argey and other fliers to just be outclassed by the griffin. A diving argy is quick and fast but if he hits the ground he goes splat and when he pulls out of the dive he is starts to slow down. Araneo -should be able to build large web traps that can help trap bigger dinos the more Araneos you use. For hard they are to tame they need to have a must have utility. Bats- should have an echo detection ability that lets them see through a Rock Drakes cloak and alerts you to any sneaking enemies nearby. Maybe allow it to attactch to you and act like a living wing suit. Beezlbufo- can we make its cement gathering proc on all insects. Gets really tiresome when on some maps small insects are few and far between but there is a scorpion every 2 feet that yields no cementing paste but tons of chititn. Would help that cementing grind bit Lymantria -can I please get an attack for the moth. I was so excited when I saw the moth and they are so pretty but have so little use and you have to un away fro Titanomyra when your on them because you have no offensive attack. Seriously? I want my Mothra to darken the skies and bring fear.....or at least be able to bite the flying ants back I'll settle for that. Anklyo can we get metal and obsidian weight reduction extended to metal structures Doed stone and crystal weight reduction extended to stone structures Dimorphodon can we get a perch system for dimorphodons like they fly out and look for stuff then come back after a bit with maybe some meat or rare resources or even small eggs. can also use them as watch dogs that just swarm anything that gets to close then come right back once its out of range. Would be great to be able to put all birds on this setting and then get resources from them Ichtyornis get prime fish Featherlight get mushrooms and gem like that Stego- can we get something like a troop carrier for smaller dinos for the stego like you tell a dimorphodon a lystra and bulbdog to get on the stegos back. Now when the stego gets attacked they jump off and help it fight when the threat is gone they get back on. It would also be very useful in moving all your little dinos to new bases as well. Could even be used for babies with none of the bonuses of course. Parasaur- can they get like a really loud hornsound that increases the speed stat as like a flee mechanic. Also make it so it can sound off if a predator comes into range and its at your base or even sound off when a baby hatches. Make the alarm system of the player. Mammoth- needs a platform saddle also can it make a sound like the parasaur but that buffs defense kinda like a call to arms. Maybe even add a to me mechanic if put on watch where neutral dinosaurs will run to it to get the buff then attack what it alerted on. Trike make it a siege engine give it a high tier saddle that has two catapults or such on it to fire at bases. maybe even a tek saddle that has 2 guns on it. Or a mobile shield generator 3 other things I would love a dino to be an organic fabricator. Not sure which one fits the bill but it would be nice to have one for those schematics we get. Also can all of the apex creatures please be breedable (Wyvern, Rock Drake, Griffin Basilisk). Make it a server option. I want to breed wyverns while on console...please. Finally can we get more saddle options like armor for our battle mounts and such or even just make ramshackle and such saddle seem to have more armor. For instance a journeyman armor has metal plates covering certain areas while an ascendant saddle has spikes and metal plating everywhere. This way I can tell the armor and have a reason to lool for 235 ascendant armor when i already have 235 ramshackle Sorry for the wall of text.
