  1. Hi All, I recently set up a crossplay dedicated server on my PC for my friends and I to play on xbox, and it runs beautifully except for one minor problem. It seems that after my PC sits idle for several hours, the server becomes un-joinable. By un-joinable, I mean that when you view the profile of the silver xbox live account that I use to run the server, the option to "join game" is greyed out. I checked and rechecked both my network and PC settings (I use port triggering to open the required xbox ports), and I haven't been able to find a problem. I have an open NAT in both the Xbox app on my PC and on my Xbox, and I've customized the power settings on my PC so that it won't go to sleep, hibernate, turn of the disk drives or anything like that. The weirdest thing is that when I check my PC when this issue happens, the server appears to be running just fine and my silver xbox live account is still happily logged into both the xbox live app and Ark... It's like something timed out and xbox decided that my silver account's session wasn't joinable anymore... The only workaround I've been able to find so far, is to simply restart the server (which sucks to have to do all the time). Has anyone run into this issue before? Here's a bullet point list of my setup, btw: PC Settings: PC is on Windows 10 PC connects to the network via ethernet PC power settings are optimized to prevent it from going to sleep, shutting off the harddrive, hibernating, etc. The only thing it does is turn off the screen after 30 min. Ark play anywhere installed Silver xbox live account (in my gold account's family) is logged into the Xbox live app and Ark Running dedicated crossplay server from Ark game on PC (via Xbox app) Network: Used port triggering on router to open required xbox ports NAT showing "Open" on both Xbox and in PC Xbox app Xbox: Gold xbox live account is signed into xbox (silver account on PC is linked to this one via the family feature) * NOTE: I realize that it sometimes takes several days for a server to appear in the server list in Ark. It's because of that, that my friends and I have been joining it via my silver account's profile. Thanks in advance, everyone!

    Please help, im gunna cry!!

    I just cant find any info about what's going on. Forgetting about the misery of steam and windows 10 versions of the game being separate, I gave in to buying another copy on xbox and installed windows 10 on my pc for crossplay so I could play with my girlfriend but before I could even get around to that I had problems. I would really appreciate even the slightest answers if anyone knows anything: The server I play on with the xbox (eu-pvp-xboxofficial-theisland71) does not appear when im on windows 10. WHY?? even though there are other xbox servers appearing. It says you can "pick up your adventure anytime on any device"...well I can't. So the next thing I did was to find another server to transfer to. I put in matching search criteria on xbox and windows (all servers for one map)...xbox brings back 331 servers, windows brought back 20. This is a popular game!! why is there only 20 servers, and I think only 10 were for EU. If anyone could shed light on that it would be appreciated. So I figure it must be something specific with the named crossplay servers and same problem. They did both appear on windows and xbox but checked those, and they are over crowded and there needs to be way more. Lastly, windows 10 version doesn't seem to have start-up graphic options like steam has if you have a low-end machine. even on lowest everything in game its not enough (and looks terrible!!) On steam I could play above lowest and have a reasonable looking and running session. Maybe some knows if you can plug some steam files into windows directory to make those changes??? Im just quite upset that it has been so difficult to do something so simple. It feels like the whole play anywhere/crossplay stuff has been done very haphazardly.
  3. Since Ark on Win10 launched i am able to host a server (as i would on Xbox) BUT my friends on Xbox cannot join with an error message saying "unable to join" or something along those lines. this problem does not affect me because my PC that is hosting the server and my xbox one are both on the same network (my theory). which i proved to be true when i connected to my neighbors internet and i too got the error message.. i dont know why this is but all i want to do is host on my PC win10 ark for me and my friends on xbox and this error message seems to not have been fixed since its launched. but coming back to win10 it seems this problem still hasnt been fixed.
  4. Are there any other sites out there besides Nitrado that offer Xbox/PC crossplay hosting? I've had a Nitrado crossplay server up for a little over a month and I'm just really unhappy all around with their web interface, Xbox app, update system/policy, support staff and pricing - oh, and they are based overseas, so the timezone difference (I'm in the US) has caused irritation at times as well. I'd switch in a heartbeat if there were better alternatives that don't involve using my own hardware to run the servers.
  5. I am trying to host a pc server for Ark again, I have done it before but now there is a change. I'm trying to get the server up for cross play which I know is possible but not sure what I'm missing for getting the ports or the game optimized for it. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Apologies if this topic has been done before, running short on time today and had to try getting it out and hopefully answered. Thank you for your time.
  6. I’m running a crossplay Server off of my Windows 10 pc, I can connect but friends outside of my home network cannot. I have tried opening ports both on the router and the windows firewall, reinstalling teredo, turning off my firewall. Nothing has worked please help!

    Xbox Win-10 crossplay

    Couldn't really find this posted anywhere me and my friends played on a server i hosted on my pc crossplay with xbox . we stopped playing for a few months so i left the server off. Tryed to update ark the other day on my win 10 pc and it kept saying was unable to update ark was frustirating i figured just remove it from the hard drive and now i try to reinstall it says its no longer avalible on this device my win 10 pc. the ark page on win 10 store still says play anywhere but if i read down so only on xbox now.........now sure if its a problem with windows 10 store or what but its annoying anyone else having this problem mircosoft isnt reporting any problems atm
  8. Hello, I am on Xbox and I am trying to join my friend who is on Windows 10 and running a non-dedicated server. It won't let me join him, whenever I get to the point of the game being done loading, I get a black screen and it freezes. If I create a server he can join me just fine, I just can't join him. I would really rather he host so there is no tether range. Edit: Both NAT types are Open
  9. Hello, I will be starting a new host dedicated cross-play server and I am looking for people to join. The server features: 3x XP 4x Taming 3x Harvesting 6x Mating, Maturation and Egg Hatching as well as a decrease in mating intervals. The server will be ran on a dedicated PC that has Ethernet connection. The server will be live by June 26th at 9:00 am EST. The server will remain on 95% of the time and may only be down for maintenance. The host account gamer-tag is ChalkArkServer
  10. I bought ark survival evolved with season pass on steam, i used to play on pc but my pc isnt that good. Now i have a ps4 and i wanna know if i could get ark from my steam account on my ps4. Can anyone tell me something about this?
  11. I have not been able to find any information pertaining to an update on new Windows 10 CrossPlay servers. There have been some releases of new servers or different types released in the past few weeks, but none of these are available to Windows 10 Survivors. Is there any news on the status of opening all XBox servers to Windows 10 CrossPlay Survivors? Or maybe just a few fresh Win10 CrossPlay servers.
  12. Have hosted a dedicated Ark server for Xbox friends for well over a year on my second Xbox with second Gold account. has had issues but we always resolved them. With the new crossplay we decided to get back into Ark with PC friends. Couple people get "Join Failed". no matter what we do. Xbox server set up on DMZ. There are 5 of us that play on it for now. 2 on Xbox. 3 on PC (including me). Xbox friend connect fine. 1 PC player connects fine. 1 PC player gets join failed everytime. set his PC up on DMZ. disabled all antivirus/windows defender/etc. still gets join failed. I, on my PC, get join failed. On same network as dedicated. disabled antivirus/defender/etc. Both of us that get failed can join any official server just fine, but can't join any player run session. whether dedicated or non. tried uninstalling/reinstalling. same results. hard reset PC/Xbox and all network devices (server and client side), same results. guys that can connect keep being able to, us that can't still can't. any ideas? cause I'm fresh out
  13. I have a dedicated server that is running on a Windows 10 machine. We currently have 4 people that play on the server. 3 of us play on PC, 1 plays on Xbox. The 3 of us on PC are crashing constantly. We can sometimes play 20-30 minutes but eventually the game client will crash. Sometimes it crashes after just a couple minutes or few seconds. There are no warnings, the client just closes. Most of the time we cannot rejoin immediately, we have to wait for the server to recognize that we are no longer connected and logs out our characters before we can rejoin. I'm unable to locate any sort of logs that would give any information for this type of issue. With this happening to 3 completely different PCs, I would think its a game client issue. I've restarted the server multiple times, though I doubt it's a server issue because the person playing on Xbox doesn't experience these crashes. Anyone else having this issue? Anyone know how to resolve these issues? Thanks
  14. Hi, I am running a dedicated server on Windows 10, installed from the Microsoft store to enable crossplay. Does anyone know how to backup this server? I found lots of info for the Steam based game but cannot find anything for the MS Store based game. Tried looking for a similar path to the Steam game but do not have access to the WindowsApps folder. Cheers
  15. Welcome to Icarus Ark, a server designed for those who want to experience PvP while also enjoying some of the benefits of PvE servers. My goal is to create, sustain, and grow a server that is competitive while also remaining a fun and exciting adventure for all those involved. Our current map is Ragnarok, hosted by Nitrado. The amount of slots is currently at 20, although as the server grows, more slots and extra maps can be introduced. We will also have weekly events which are yet to be determined, and I would love your input! Every other week spawns will be set to 180 instead of 150 in order to promote a more active and engaged community. To find our Ark, just type in Icarus Ark, and we should be the only result in unofficial pc sessions. Rules: Do not make any racist/sexist remarks or harass any member of the Discord/Ark. We're here to have fun, not to be disrespectful. No wiping bases. Use logic and common sense while raiding. Passive killing is not expressly prohibited, but use the "Golden rule". A dead server is not a fun server. Once a tribe is raided, they will be granted raid protection from the raiders for one week. Other tribes are free to raid, but once they make an attempt the raid protection applies to them as well. If any of these rules are broken, the punishment will be as follows: Strike System: 1. A warning and an announcement in chat denouncing said tribe. 2. Any users caught online will be transported to "Freehold", a prison facility hidden away. They will be subject to a certain amount of time based on the offense. 3. Half of your Dino's are wiped at random. Perfectly balanced, as all things should be. 4. Bans will be handed out to offending individuals or tribes. Server Settings: XP x2 Harvest x3 Taming x8 Hatching x15 Maturation x10 Structure Collision Disabled Cave Flyers Allowed Cave Damage On (x3 instead of x6) Unlimited Respecs Player Stats: Health x2 Stamina x3 Oxygen x3 Fortitude x5 Speed x2 Melee x1 Weight x5 Water/Food x2 In order to view the full extent of Icarus Ark, join our Discord at https://discord.gg/W72U5ym . I look forward to meeting and arking with all of you!

    PC and PS4 crossplay.

    Hiii Survivors, So since Fortnite and Rocket League are gonna get or already have cross platform play where is the ARK Crossplay? It's clear that Sony still don't wants crossplay with Xbox. But PC and PS4 is possible. Earlier the ARK dev team told us that crossplay is a thing and that they have it running. So why not open the game crossplay with PS4 and PC? It would be awesome if i can play with my friends from PS4. And dont complain about the skill gap. It's your choice to play on a cross play server Regards Joost
  17. hi i'm hosting my server on a home pc with the emulation of ark available on microsoft store . that you can get if you own the xbox verssion of the game . so it's a GAMERTAG hosting the server i'm playing with my character on xbox . i would like to be able to ceate a cluster wit 5 maps .

  18. After much trial and error, here are some tips for the Win10 Ark and Crossplay Your Game.ini and GameUserSettings.ini are under the following Win10 folder: C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Local\Packages\StudioWildcard.45...\LocalState\Saved\UWPConfig\UWP The settings GUI appears to fully honor the settings in the ini file. I wouldn't try having both open at the same time and making changes, ini in an editor and the GUI. You may not save your settings correctly. Your saved Ark maps are in that same area under LocalState\Saved\Maps Every time you load a new map a new folder structure will be generated for it (ie: The Center, Raganarok, etc) When you upload an item or dino to an obelisk for the first time a file will be created under the same area, at LocalState\Saved\clusters\solecluster This file, I believe, is tied either to the XBox Live ID that purchased the game, or possibly your Win 10 machine ID. The same number is generated when I load up under two different Silver Xbox Live ID's, so I think it has nothing to do with the Xbox Live ID that is currently signed in, but possibly the one that purchased the game. Okay now for some interesting tests My goal was to run 2 server instances on the same Win10 box by starting one instance, switch user, and start another instance. Then I wanted to cross ark between the two all the while playing on my Xbox. I have a quad core i7 with a super fast NVMe solid state drive, and 24GB of ram. It loads the Dedicated Server Ark blazingly fast. What works: I created 2 Xbox Live Silver accounts. These accounts can be logged in seperately when you switch windows users. I created 2 Windows user accounts to use with the Silver accounts. On each Windows account, log in to the Windows Store as the XBox Live GOLD user that purchased the game. You can search for Ark and download the game (and expansions) for free for each Silver user. The nice thing is that after the first big download, the next user download is only about 60MB, it doesn't download the whole game again. But it still wants the full space of 60+ GB to start the download, even though it doesn't use it. Note: This doesn't mean you can play with the Silver users (you DO need Gold to actually play), but you CAN run servers using Silver accounts. Now I linked the 2nd user "clusters" folder to the 1st user (my primary user) clusters folder, with the "mklink /J" command. If you don't know how to do this you'll want to google it. I also did this for the maps, but you may not want to, or may need to be careful. My intent is for one user to run one map, and the next user to run another map. Always. Linking them makes all the saved maps show up on all the users (that have the linked maps folder). I personally like this. I also did this for the ini folder, but changed it back during testing. Using this method, I can start one instance on my 1st user, join on XBox, upload items/tames to the obelisk, shut down that instance, log onto my 2nd user account and start a new instance, join with XBox and download items/tames from the obelisk. Ok, so far so good. Next I tried to run both instances at the same time. I set the processor affinity in the first instance on ShooterGame.exe to a dedicated core, and the same on the second instance. And this is where I got stuck. My Xbox will see both Silver users "Playing Ark". I can join either user with "Join Game" on my XBox, but it will ALWAYS join the first instance that was started. Same thing if I click on "Invite" from the 2nd instance Dedicated Server GUI menu. It still joins the 1st instance. I tried creating another IP address on my NIC after starting the first instance, then starting the second instance. Doesn't work. I tried adding "Port=7779" to the GameUserSettings.ini file of the 2nd instance, doesn't work. I think that setting only works on the command line to start the instance, which isn't available on Win10. I've tried translating some settings to Win10 from here: as much as I could I have yet to try putting the 2nd Silver account on another machine and running the 2nd instance there. It'll have to wait a few days until my wife can unwrap that other machine for Christmas, then I'll borrow it for a bit. Has anyone been able to get this to work? Or Ark dev's: Do you have an tips on getting 2 instances to run on the same box, like on the Steam version? Or could you make some settings available in ini's to run multiple instances, such as Port settings? Thanks!! Arkton

Hope to see you there!!
  20. I've set up a server to host my friends on Win10 PC, friends on xbox. Yes, it is the windows store version, crossplay compatible, I've tried with and without passwords, and it never lets my friends join. Trying to start on Abberation. One of my friends played in my basement and was able to join, but a few others were not. Any ideas? I've looked over the setting and can't figure out how to move forward, and it is very frustrating to be stuck on something that should be working fine.
  21. Hello, I'm looking to run a PC server for xbox crossplay. Is the only way to accomplish this the same as running it on an xbox? Meaning, you have to run ARK and have people join off your gamertag? Or is there a way where you can run it similar to how steam servers work (standalone server program)? I'd like to run a cluster but I can find anywhere that outlines the limitations or setup types that cross play supports. I have a enterprise server that I want to run multiple servers on at once.
  22. Fairly New Ragnarok boosted crossplay server with a friendly community. Will be hosting community events when more players join. Aberration store available for purchase of Aberration gear and dinos. No starter but admins are happy to help newcomers. PvP server, raiding is allowed but no foundation wipes and unnecessary tame killing will be dealt with by admin. Admins generally won't get involved in conflicts unless required to, (provocation).

  24. Hi there, and welcome! We're glad you decided to stop by and check us out. It's always nice to eat new people...uh, meet new people. Little Freudian slip there, woops. Since you're here, we thought you might be interested in reading a text wall explaining some of the finer points of play on our servers. Below you'll find information on servers included in the cluster, server settings, events, and anything else we think is relevant. Do take a moment to skim it over, as most of your questions will be answered herein. Discord We use Discord to manage the cluster. The Discord server houses all of the rules, store information; it serves as a hub for communication between tribes, and is where we announce upcoming events and changes. In short, Discord is the central hub of our cluster, and it would be wise to join if you intend to play on our servers. You can download Discord to a PC or Mobile device at the following url: https://discordapp.com/. To join our Discord server, simply click on the following link: https://discord.gg/dN5pg3F Once you join, you will hit a reception area where you will be prompted to read over the Discord and Server Rules. You will also be required to respond as instructed before you are permitted access to all of the channels. Cluster and Crossplay We use a server cluster around these parts, which chains the various maps together. You are free to move from one map to another at your leisure, and can transport everything but Tribute items (Yut lungs, Argie Talons, and so forth) between maps. We have also enabled Crossplay on all of our servers, which means you can use your Windows 10 version of the game to play on any of the maps. Crossplay does not currently include Steam copies of the game, but the Windows 10 version of the game and all content is free, assuming you own the game and content on your Xbox. Maps in Cluster Aberration: [uS][Cluster] Ark FTW-Aberration The Island:[uS][Cluster] Ark FTW-The Island Ragnarok: [uS][Cluster] Ark FTW-Ragnarok The Center(PvP): [uS][Cluster] Ark FTW-The Center Note: You must own these maps in order to move between them. Server Settings Our lives are ruled by these, so it's probably a good idea to make you aware of what they are, yeah? Below you will find a sectional listing of the current server settings, which will be updated any time things change.

After 115, level progression follows a liner ramp formula (previous XP requirement+20k). This continues until you hit 120, which will require a staggering 600,000 XP, and will ramp at previous+50k through level 125. 125 to 126 will require 300,000, and will fall back to the linear ramp of previous+20k up to 155. The steep curve at the end is because we've included some custom code to allow Tek engrams to be unlocked organically between levels 120 and 125. This was a measure we took to ensure that our solo players, who are at a severe disadvantage where the boss arenas are concerned, could reasonably acquire Tek engrams. The most efficient means of acquiring Tek engrams remains the boss arenas. We have also added an adition 70 engram points for each level after 115, which should again benefit solo players.

Teleport Network Every map has a Teleport network that any player, regardless of level, can make use of. The Teleport Hubs are generally located in the corners of each map, with additional Hubs at each of the Community Centers, and any other community location (Fishing Ponds, Milking and Taming Pens, Proving Grounds, and so on). Fishing Pond Every map has an artificially stocked fishing pond, complete with benches and refrigerators for bait storage. Taming and Milking Pens Each map, where necessary, will have community pens built for trapping various dinos and for Wyvern milking. This mitigates the issue of every tribe or solo player creating map clutter by having their own pens. Plus, they are really cool. Store The cluster does operate a store, but it is limited in the scope of items sold. We don't want to interfere with the natural trade economy across the cluster, but recognize that there is gap the store might fill. The items listed are the only items sold via the store, across the cluster. All prices are fixed, and non-negotiable. All dinos will be spawned at maximum server level, and can be bred (assuming the species can be bred). Contests and Events We like to have fun around these parts, and want to provide you folks with an immersive experience you will all enjoy. To that end, we have a variety of events either running or which will begin in short order. Anniversary Event This event is mostly to commemorate Wildcard finally giving us the ability to rent servers, and as a subtle nod to those of you who have been with us through all of the crashing and resets. We appreciate all of the faith you have placed in us, and appreciate the loyalty you have demonstrated over these last few years. Alright, enough with the mushy stuff, and on to the guts of it. The event will run on the second weekend of every month, and will see 2x Experience and Harvesting. Taming and Breeding rates will be set at Single Player rates. All of the multipliers are listed below: Event Multipliers GenericXPMultiplier= 2.0 HarvestAmountMultiplier=6.0 TamingSpeedMultiplier= 6.0 MatingIntervalMultiplier=0.075 EggHatchSpeedMultiplier=12.0 BabyMatureSpeedMultiplier=36.799000 Raffles We run raffles once a week, each with a different prize. Once a month, during the Anniversary event, a themed raffle is run for a much grander prize. Each raffle has a unique ticket currency, which will always consist of smaller, tamed dinos. Each raffle will have a single winner based on a random draw (a computer program handles this end of it). Participating is as simple as taming the raffle currency, renaming it with either your *Gamertag* or *Tribe Name*, disabling wander, and depositing the dino in a raffle collector at any of the commuunity centers. There is no limit to the number of raffle entries any individual or tribe can deposit. Information on the current raffle can be found in the #raffle channel. Auctions Once a month, also during the Anniversary Event, a cluster-wide auction is held. The Admins get together and pick some things we think you folks might want to bid on, we spawn them in at the Community Center on Ragnarok, and the madness ensues. Each auction will have a currency requirement, typically metal ingots, and a minimum bid requirement for each specific item to be auctioned. No, we don't keep the cost of won items. The ingots go into a collector, and are allowed to despawn. See the #auction-house channel for more details. The Golden Dodo It's out there, somewhere, probably chewing on a raptor or two. A high level, ridiculously overpowered, golden dodo is released on each map. The dodo will have something good in it's inventory, and it's yours for the taking should you find it. Claim it, take your prize, and put the dodo in the raffle collector at the map's community center. I, Spy The admins, at their leisure, will spawn in an underwater lootcrate. A broadcast message will go out to the entire map with nearby coordinates, and the race is on to claim whatever is inside. Guess the Pincode There it sits, a box full of something. Is it useful, wonderful, magnificent? You won't know, until you guess the Pin code and open the box. Find the colored storage box at each of the community centers, figure out the pin code, and get whatever is inside. Proving Grounds Jousting, Sword fighting, Archery, Roping, Riding, obstacle courses, and whatever else we can come up with. The Providing Grounds is a multi-use event arena that will be used to host a variety of events, many of which you will be allowed to bet on. PUBG Ala Ark We're still waiting on Neon to hit us with some details on this one, but we'll have more information up soon. Races Think your Sheep is fast? How about your Equus? Put your money where your mouth is, and let's find out. Each race will have a required entry fee, with the pot going to the winner. Last Straw Standing Think you've got some building skills? Put them to the test in this building contest. Each participant will build their best straw hut design (materials will be provided), and then the Trogdoor will be released. We have no idea what a Trogdoor is, but Pearl assures us it is very scary. Whichever building takes the most time to destroy wins the prize.
