      Note for players regarding Ascension (please open terminal/tribute before ascending)   02/04/18

      With the latest server update on PC (v276.493), if you're going to attempt ascension, before doing so please make sure you've opened a supply crate/transmitter/obelisk/ basically anything terminal/tribute inventories. It's a temp workaround to characters being lost when ascending whilst we're investigating character issues further.

  1. I haven't found out why this is happening sometimes. Usually it'll fix itself if you disable and re-enable the overlay.
  2. @ZeroSecondsthanks for the suggestions, I'll put them on the todo-list. The "clean"-option has been added in one of the previous releases, in the breeding-plan you can set the max mutations for creatures to be considered in the Breeding-Mode-box. Regarding the pedigree, I don't know how to connect the family tree more efficient. If I come up with a better idea, I'll consider to add it. The tool can only guess who could be the offspring of whom, there's no certainty, so the user has to select that manually.
  3. Hi, one way would be to create screenshots of the creatures and use the OCR-feature of ASB to add the creatures to a library (OCR is not perfect, manual adjustments may have to be applied). Instead of screenshots you can probably also use a stream of your ps4 on the laptop and grab the data from there (you may have to adjust the "Capture from" in Settings - General - OCR. A very fast way you can use if you have access to the save-file of the server. This is only possible if you play on an unofficial server and the admin provides the file (which they probably will not do if it's a PvP-server, to not reveal info about other players). If you have access to the save-file, you can import this after converting it with ark-tools, some more info can be found in ASB - Settings - Import. For using ASB, you only need to enter the most useful creatures for breeding, you can leave out species you don't want to breed, and creatures you know you will never use for breeding.
  4. Good idea, I'll add a checkbox for that in the next version.
  5. Hi, thanks for the report. I found the cause of this bug, it will be fixed in the next release.
  6. You can use the program of course with any resolution. To use the OCR, you need an OCR-config-file for the resolution of your screen. If there is no file available, you can create one, see https://github.com/cadon/ARKStatsExtractor/wiki/OCR for more infos. You can save the file in a shared folder (e.g. dropbox, googledrive, etc.) and then enable the autoload and autosave option. see https://github.com/cadon/ARKStatsExtractor/wiki/FAQ#how-can-i-share-the-list-with-my-tribe-members-and-edit-simultaneosly for more infos.
  7. Hi, what do you mean with importing? The typing in values, the OCR or the use of ark-tools? For the overlay you need to load the correct OCR-file, located in the json-folder. Go to the "Experimental OCR"-tab and click on "Load OCR config" to choose the file that matches your windows-resolution. Hi, did you try the "Partly Event" checkbox? It's made specifically for creatures that were raised partly during an event (or generally said with different raising-multipliers during their growing).
  8. Yes, I'll add an option for the status-update in the next release. Currently, a new import will set all creatures that are in the save-file, but not on that server (e.g. on another server or uploaded), to unavailable. If using the import-feature with multiple servers, that creates this unwanted effect. thank coldino for the creation of the import-feature
  9. That's probably due to the naming inconsistencies ingame. If there is no exact matching for a species, the importer takes the species that looks most similar. For the "Aberrant Paracer" and "Ovis" there should already be a fix. For other species it would be good to know what exactly get's confused with what.
  10. An imported creature has for all levels a zero if the creature is not alive anymore and only appears as an ascendant of another creature. It's time consuming. I started a mobile app, but currently I just don't have enough time for that.
  11. Hi, I don't think that there is a discrepance between the current xbox and steam-version. Are you on an unofficial server? Maybe you need to adjust the stat-multipliers. Incase you want an older values.json, you can find a list of old releases here: https://github.com/cadon/ARKStatsExtractor/releases Hi, it appears you have to execute ark-tools.exe update-data once to create a file called ark_data.json. After that it should work. I'll let the tool do this automatically in the next release.
  12. It was just added in the last version for exactly the issues with the S+ Nanny
  13. Hi, for that there's the "Allow more than 100% imprinting" in the general settings. Also you may have to check "Partly Event" in the Imprint-Quality-input to make the extraction succeed.
  14. Dino stat multiplier calculator?

    Mostly correct. TameAdd = PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed_Add is a multiplier for the additive bonus that a creature gets after it is tamed (a relevant bonus is only existing for damage and speed. HP and torpor get a small bonus without any real impact). TameAff = PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed_Affinity is a bonus that depends on the taming-effectiveness and is applied after the additive bonus. It only affects damage, and for some species food (the latter has no real impact on gameplay, e.g. the daeodon has no bonus on food) WildLevel = PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoWild affects the gain per wild level DomLevel = PerLevelStatsMultiplier_DinoTamed affects the gain per tamed level you apply The default values are mostly 1.0, but for HP and damage they are different. You can see the default values in ARK Smart Breeding in the settings if you click on "default values" in the settings.
  15. Some users told that they use a streaming-tool to get the xbox-screen on the pc. Then you can perform a OCR from this video-stream (choose the streaming-app in the ASB settings in the OCR-section). I have not tried that yet, not owning an xbox. If that doesn't work, you can still just enter the stat-values manually in the tool.
