    >>> ULowLevelFatalError [File:F:\build\LostIsland\Engine\Source\Runtime\Windows\D3D11RHI\Private\D3D11Util.cpp] [Line: 201] Unreal Engine is exiting due to D3D device being lost. (Error: 0x887A0020 - 'INTERNAL_ERROR') VERSION: 0.0

    That error is often spurious - it (can be) a corrupt game file that just ain't calling the dx dll libraries correctly. Sure it does point to a bad graphics "thing" but where is that "bad thing". The error dumps in ark, without having the source code to definitively see what the issue is, are often a bit misleading ....

    Is not possible - no body is gonna "unplug" a graphics card whilst the machine is on. So either there is a serious hardware error on OP's graphics card - or the software is bust ......... And that means fixing the software!

    /consolewartrollmode = on
    The problem with Xbox is people owning them
    /consoletrollmode = off

    /consolewartrollmode = on

    Dudes get a real gaming platform - like a 6 year old i5 intel PC LOL

    /consolewartrollmode = off

    Seriously your lot (especially the "negative render" and the "0.04 m render") sounds a lot like what all official PC server players dub as "rubber banding". Which is when the server tries to catch up with all the stuff the client (you) has done - and then figures it can't do it, and jumps you back in time .... And that's server issue - not your game client platform.

    I have had trees that are supposed to be all leafy and beautiful that render as a bunch of sticks before now -  especially after being in game a long while. But creatures - never.  Good luck guys - hope it gets better for you - otherwise see you on steam in a bit :)

  3. Officially (on Steam) It is not possible. And any way (on steam) as soon as you boot the steam interface it will "update".

    There are tricks and things with various steam emulators (mostly from some fairly dodgy russian sites) that will get around that  - but to FIND the old version to download and run is a challenge. If you on the steam version I have kept some "snapshots" of the install over time - and may be able to help you with a historical version (depending on what you looking for - my stuff is very erratic, and by no means exhaustive). But I ain't gonna give "tips" on getting around the steam update as soon as you launch the game - I may get arrested :)

    I don't play pvp but if I did I'd have a few.

    I remember a long while ago now - I was on official Small Tribes with a dodgy 2 x 2 base on Rag somewhere in the desert. I was like lvl 30 or so (before petra saddle anyway) but I had a flock of DiMorphs set on neutral around my little base to catch the snakes and mantis & etc. And some dude on a Rock Drake (on Rag ????) landed. And the landing provoked my flock. And the dude and his damn drake was history in like 20 secs.  And the further trouble is (from chat) he just wanted to say hello! But anyway he came back w mates - and I found  new server LOL

    Never mind PVP they are brilliant in most caves ..... I started before the cryo trick of getting big dino's past the choke points of entry in a lot of the caves - and have not altered my strategy. A flock of high level dimorphs DESTROY stuff!!!!

    And watching pro players who specialize in solo play is a great way to get those answers, unless you want to figure it all out thru trial and error.  If one has a truly unlimited amount of time to play, sure, figure it out as you go.  If one is a grown up with a job and some other time obligations, anything to shorten the grind would likely be appreciated.  

    Sure - I don't dispute that at all!!!! My point is that this lot is easily available with a simple web search - but OP chose to post a question here. So maybe he doesn't want to watch 20 mins (or whatever) of game play. Or maybe he don't want to get all the "pro" tips that come in such a stream of game play. He posted a simple(ish) question. Which deserves a simple(ish) answer. And anyway - I did post a caveat of prior beer on the comment :):)

    Yeah that definitely sounds weird

    Yeah v v  weird ... As in this (or another - I don't remember) post I have gone on OK w Rex's & Tek Rex's and even (a long time ago) Ptera's. Same server / same server settings ... I at one moment got to the point of starting to go at Vultures - but the work and the "catch" of those little %^&%$ not responding to "Attack this Target" dissuaded me. Never mind - I will at a moment go gather up that whole damn bunch of "flocks" and breed the whole damn lot at once to see the results. I guess I may have some dodgy hidden "Don't mute Dimorps" setting in my ini's somewhere - but I seriously doubt it.

    But thanks ALL for the posts - it is possible - I just ain't got there for some reason or another!!!

    Are you doing all of this on single player?

    All the quoted numbers are on dedicated (private) servers. I didn't bother to go look at single player. I run the servers vanilla (no mods) with (as near as I can get) official Small Tribes settings. I may have cranked the XP / harvest  rates up to 3 x (don't remember now) but the rest is vanilla!

    What are your favorite spots to find rexes?

    I have had a lot of luck with both Tek and normal rex's on Valgeiro. From the green Obi up left (or North West) to the top of the sea, and then in an arc going down the edge of the sea. There is one deep quarry around the middle of the map just off the coast of the sea that invariably has a bunch of Rex's. And again around some the lakes to the top right of the top of the ocean. Kinda like the spawn map on the wikkie :)

    I'm curious how many you have breed.

    Yeah I took effort to go back to a whole bunch of "dormant" maps to see. On the island I have a group of 23 females. On Scorched a (small) pool of 12 females, on Valgureo into the 30's, on Rag (two different incarnations of the map) 9 and 17. 

    And these things show (on average) 10  to 15 generations in the parents history. But not one mute .... Really bad random number turn out I guess.

    try to hatch a bunch of eggs all at the same time

    Do you suppose this make a difference - My understanding is that the dice roll happens with each egg that is popped. So whether 40 eggs pop over the space of 6 hours (or 6 days for that matter), or whether they all pop in like a minute should not make a blind bit of difference?


    On 1/14/2022 at 3:05 AM, GrumpyBear said:

    well how many do you breed at a time?  If you hatched 50 eggs all at once, I bet you'd find some.

    Hmmm - maybe I will give that a go when I'm bored. It will be interesting to see, but as above I am skeptical around the answer that mass volume all at once will make a difference?

  11. So over time I have probably bred more Dimorphs than any other thing.  I do have tek rexe's with 19 x1 7 (male x female) mutations!

    But i have  NEVER got a mutation on a dimorph baby (on any stat) . Am I  just looking wrong, or is the rate a lot lower, or does this just not happen. or have I missed a boat somewhere?

  12. @Milanio Some left field strategy:

    This game is a survival game - but you CANNOT be permanently killed!

    So (I assume you have a bed to re-spawn at - if not no worries - just use random re-spawn points).

    Spawn in. If its your "base" put all of your stuff in a box. Wander round. Look at (and remember) how the dino's around you react to you. When they agro on you - run - but (probably) you gonna die - so re-spawn. same place or different place - it don't matter, it will teach you about what is OK and what will try and eat your face off. When you get to re-spawn, don't go back to your bed - pick a blank spot on the map and spawn there - see what its like and which thingy does what ....

    And when you have done that enough for it to be boring then respawn back to your bed - or a place where you died the least - and go on and get to RULE the stuff trying to eat your face off..

    Watch Soloing the Ark by Phlinger Phoo or Ultimate Ark by Syntac. 

    OP posted a legitimate and fair question: To refer him to some utube booolsheet is not an answer. Sure maybe he can learn stuff there, but maybe he wants to just play the game without prior knowledge of all the tips and tricks and  things and things that are known in the community. And get a real Play Time answer to his question..................

    Sorry I took a beer and this answer rubbed me up the wrong way.

    Is there a rule of thumb to use to see if a Dino is dangerous without knowing what dino it is?

    Watch it for a bit (from a distance). If it stumbles around different Dinos and leaves them alone - it may be OK. If it goes aggressive on those different Dinos - then its gonna eat you. Not 100%, because a mixed bunch of carnivorous dinos can walk around together without going aggressive.
