  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.

    Wildcard Windows 10 dedicated servers need some TLC

    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?

    Win10 PC Dedicated for Xbox ?

    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

    Win10 PC Dedicated for Xbox ?

    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.

    Not able to summon Broodmother/Goriila/Dragon

    Bump. ARK devs any info on this?
  12. Having played ark for the past 2 years or so on xbox I feel some of the mechanics of the game that are designed to add another hurdle to jump have created bigger problems. Granted the hurdles are designed to motivate players to act in specific way and to add an incentive or penalty to a certain method of play especially on official and I would like to see server options to by pass those hurdles. Stack Numbers First off stacks or how the game stacks several pieces of the same item. I would love a server option to set how high i can stack items. Often on high resource servers I run out of inventory space before I hit weight limits because what I'm farming stacks to very low numbers. This is especially annoying when fighting alphas in the ocean. My killing blow gathers all the prime fish meat (~1500) but it does not pick up the tools and armor he dropped so I have an inventory full of fish meat and prime and I have to go to the sea floor and pray I find the bag he created on death to get the reward for killing the Alpha. Another reason to make this a server option is that a good portion of the steam mods are devoted to stack mods and seeing that should be enough reason to add this option to a server list. Finally some of the resources and their stack limits are extremely frustrating and make high level blueprints impossible to build. Making the stacking options as a server option also brings that utility to console whom do not have the use of mods. Apex Breeding Second on my list would be a server option to allow the breeding of the apex creatures like the wyvern and griffin (not to mention the Basilisk and Rock drake). I feel these creatures should be breedable if the server admin wants them to be. It also makes the wyvern more important and less up to chance to find a good breeding pair to get tat amazing super wyvern. Also color mutations, I would love to breed for those as opposed to hatch a pretty Rock Drake that is only level 25. Again several mods on steam make this possible but I would love to see it as a server option so even console player can use it. Dedicated Server Clustering Finally can we please get a way to cluster dedicated servers or at the very least give us back the upload character button. The fact that you can only play one map on a dedicated server unless you want to start a new character every time you move is ridiculous. Allow us to cluster dedicated servers both console and pc versions. I should not have to rent a server from Nitrado to have one character be able to move freely from map to map. If Wildcard would add these server options i believe it could go along way to getting some players back especially those that see the official servers and want no part of that mess. Dedicated and private servers should be a valid way to play the game on all platforms.

    Character Upload problem for Dedicated server

    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!

Hope this helps anyone else.
  14. 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.

    Windows 10 / Play Anywhere - Closes on Start Up

    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.
