  1. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    Okay so we're all on the same page here. You're referring to this setting here?
  2. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    I think we're talking about different things. Are you talking about showing offline?
  3. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    Unfortunately after doing more reading this won't work long term because many of us play games like Destiny, COD, Fortnite and more that require the matchmaking to not take that "Friends Only" hit Our server has been up for a bit longer than a month and we've have 22 breaches at last check. 22! That is completely unacceptable.

    Whoa this is an ACTUAL OPTION? Seriously?
  5. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    This is still an issue and we have yet to see a single response from @JeremyStieglitz and the ark crew. Server security should be the PRIMARY concern.

    I guess I shouldn't be too shocked that WildCard isn't actually saying anything. I sure hope they're actually doing something.
  7. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    Yup. Between the 6 streamers we have over 18,000 followers on the streaming platform, and somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 folks following the XB profiles. That's a lot of opportunity for people to be "people" and do stupid things. The sole reason we started and paid for a dedicated server was to have control over our environment. Couple all this with the fact that our dedicated server is capped at 250 tames where public servers are at 500, and according to Nitrado that # cannot be manipulated. Its just silly.

    @Olivar thanks for the help. Our server has 6 live streamers on the server. That means that there are essentially 6 public figures on the server who have "trolls" who all want to just join the server we're on and do stupid things. I have to constantly ban people and often times my friends message me saying "I'm streaming and someone has joined the server. Their name is "xxxxx" so please ban them next time you're on." This shouldn't work like this. Servers should have better security. I shouldn't have to jump through hoops to utilize basic server functionality.

    @OlgaDegmar honestly zero "broadcast" messages have worked. No log in / log out messages. No MOTD. No Server Restart. In addition to all my issues above I can't promote another user to admin to help me as I'm the "Promoted Admin" on our account and I cannot add another person. Thus I can't administrate the server 24x7x365 and I don't have a log to see what happened while I slept, and I don't have a console to administrate it while I'm not on the xbox or playing another game.
  10. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    Yeah they say that PC versions have it. Just not consoles.
  11. console XBox Hosted Console Issues

    Not sure @Olivar but I know that Nitrado does NOT have them. According to my trouble ticket transcript They clearly say that the RCON is NOT a function of the consoles. Who is your host? Any chance you'd supply a screenshot of the RCON you guys have via their service?
  12. When the news regarding Nitrado hosting XBox dedicated servers came out I was ecstatic. Myself and a couple handful of my friends were eager to get onto a server where we could control more of the gameplay to fit out play styles. Having had the server for more than a month now, I can say that there are some glaring holes that still exist and I've attempted to tweet @CudaCores , @arkjeremy, @Jatheish, and @survivetheark as well to get answers and I've gotten nothing but crickets. So I'm taking to the forums to see if I can get some answers to a problem that plagues servers on the XB. It might hit PS4 as well but I don't play there so I'm not going to speak on their behalf. Remote Console. There isn't one. This is a massive oversight with regards to server production. Forcing people to constantly be in front of their Xbox, have access to their Xbox, or constantly have an administrator online to ensure things are working smoothly is nothing short of stupidity. RCON's are a server standard, and no server should ever be developed without one. The lack of implementation puts every server at risk from the people that most server folks are trying to get away from. I'm curious if this is even being discussed for implementation, or why it's not already implemented as it stands. PC servers have it already, and console servers SHOULD have it already. Nitrado states that this was never a feature for consoles. Server Log - Doesn't work. Maybe I missed an integral component here, but as a server admin how am I supposed to see when something is going wrong on the server? I don't have access to a console, and then we double down on stupid by taking away the opportunity to see if errors are occurring. As you can see below Nitrado is placing the blame on Sony and Microsoft. Is that really where the blame lies for removing an integral part of server administration? Nitrado states the log displays sensitive information and is a stipulation to be disabled by both Sony and Microsoft. Password Protection - Why in the world does this not work? That someone can join off a random person that they've added their friends list to is exactly why you need a Remote Console or server logs. But no. Instead what we're going to do is hit the trifecta of server anarchy. Players don't need to have the password to a server and can join and be a menace. All while there is no log to see what they've actually done, and then no console to be able to "stop" them while you're not online. Essentially you've turned the servers that we pay for into a public server. Explain to me why we pay for the privledge of allowing just anyone onto a server that is password protected? Nitrado states that this is a bug within the game itself. Server Restart Timer - Just curious where this quality of life measure is at. Without a Remote Console to notify server folks that the server is coming down, restarting the server when there are corrections to .ini files is a bit cumbersome. No one wants a server restart whilst taming or flying home. A countdown timer would at least provide a notification that a server restart is incoming rather than assuming that the server has DC'd the player and the frantic login attempts being. Nitrado states that this is a bug within the game itself.
  13. Where is the update?

    I just don't want to play the tekkie crap game that is the primary game. I felt like Primitive Plus gave me that option. I'm just hoping I didn't choose poorly.
  14. Where is the update?

    I wish I could. I'm a console player and we get kind of crapped on when it comes to modifications to programs. I've cooled off a bit since yesterday too, as I was pretty heated reading the information there, but there were SOME repairs done in Primitive Plus. We have all the animals now. Spawns were fixed. Broken trees are no longer broken.
  15. Where is the update?

    I am getting to the point where I'm going to stop playing Ark completely. I've been a staunch defender of the game, @complexminded and the modification, but when you can't even patch the game on the console 30 days after patching the PC, it's time to give up. Primitive Plus is over 4 months behind and isn't getting better. It might be time for me to just go ahead and move on to For Honor completely and just leave my crap with the crap that I was given.
