      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. pc ark hosting problem

    I need help starting a server on my pc so i can play it on my Xbox. My NAT Type is open so i don't know why i cant join my server that my pc is hosting.
  2. Well i was casually playing ark on my only character and all of a sudden my server shuts down. my tribe and i wait and wait for hours and noting happens and everyday we check up on the server and its hasn't been up ONCE since THURSDAY not only have we reported it but we also contacted admins directly and they wont help us. this is not good for my tribe and other tribes on the server because we all have our only characters stuck on that one server and no one will help us get the server back up so we can get off that server and move to a server with more up time. SERVER #124 OFFICIAL PVP ASIA ON PC
  3. Ark crashes when loading

    I'll update this the error message if my ark crashes again and I get the error. Happens about once a day. This error also happen while updating the game this weekend 01/12/2018, it would look back to "update available" when I had already downloaded the update. Ark would launch and crash on the splash screen sending you back to the xbox dashboard. My Ark was crashing when I was loading the game from the xbox dashboard. From the xbox dashboard if you click on ark to launch the game, you will get the splash screen and then immediately Ark crashes back to the dashboard and an microsoft error message is displayed. This may be due to the Digital Rights management. What I did: Quit ark by forced quit on the dashboard. Deleted the 512 ARK cache off the Ark game under manage game. Signed off my Xbox account Restart or shut off the Xbox, through the setting menu, not by pushing the button on controller. When the Xbox restarted, I was able to start Ark. I experienced harsh crashes while playing the game and got the same error message again and ark would not launch past the splash screen, I repeated the above and was able to start playing again. Be patient it can take upwards of 5+ mins plus to do all this.
  4. I decided to spend the morning collecting Wyvern eggs and searching for a high level poison wyvern egg to complete our set. On two out of 4 occasions I picked up the egg.. Ran for my life.. Got back to base.. and there was no Wyvern egg in my Inventory. I went back to the scar to make sure I wasn't going crazy and the eggs/nests that I had raided were gone. I appreciate that loads of new content is regularly released but whats the point if the base game doesn't work properly. Things like this tempt me to put the game down and not bother if all my hard work results to nothing. Please look into this.
  5. Anyone else experiencing this on PC? I am using the Ultimate Spyglass (spyglass + magnifying glass combo) and apparently it hates menus when you have it equipped. Everytime I have the spyglass in my hand (zoomed or unzoomed, doesnt matter) and you open a menu ('Esc' menu or the pop up menu on a brand new tame appears) my cursor disappears and I can't click on anything! It won't let me move my character or close any of the menus either afterward, and its not like you can move the 'invisible' cursor around and trick shot the continue button, its just gone. This causes me to always force close Ark and open it again...another glitch to add to the already long list of glitches that can get you killed. Anyone else getting this issue as well?
  6. Abberant Megalosaur's

    So what is with PC having this patched where bred Abberant Megalosaur's don't become sleepy but xbox has the bug that they are sleepy. Basically makes the only good melee Dino in the game expansion useless.
  7. Aberration bugs

    Is anyone else experiencing the bug where you are on a tame like a crab of spino and trap a wild dino that you are going to tame by just cornering it into a rock or something and blocking it from moving and then it just vanishes?? I was doing this to a 145 crab and the crab just disappeared. Also the issue with the crab dropping anything, especially the anky, when whatever you're holding comes close to any of your own structures? This is REALLY annoying and needs to be fixed. And how about nameless being able to come up out of the ground through you're foundations? This happened to me and a reaper king came out of the ground inside my main building in my base lol rip like half my tames
  8. Xbox one single player on aberration keeps crashing

    I play single player and everytime I go to load Aberration it goes to the loading screen, gets to "Supply_Drops" or what ever and crashes to the xbox one home screen. I reopen ARK and at the base screen itll ask if I want to rejoin my last session, I click yes and it promts me to start a new character on a brand new map. I press cancel on the last session and its fine. I go to reload Aberration and it crashes again on the Supply_Drops loading. This is the 2nd time this has happened to me, first being the 3rd day after Aberration was released, but with that I was trying to figure out how to fix it, and trying to fix it resulted in me deleting my Aberration data by mistake(whoops) but when I went to access Aberration again, all my mini map data was reverted to what it was before and my prior character was back but nothing of mine on the map. The whole map was cleared but I had gotten my explorer's levels back. I ended up spawning in the max level ravager tames I had lost from the first Aberration crash.. I hate "cheating" and "admin commands" so doing that wasnt the funnest thing for me to do. And if I need to do it again, I might say screw it and quit the game because how fair is it for people to lose 2-3 weeks of progress and hard work? Fix this please.. or any kind of reply from a dev/admin would be great..
  9. Glider Suit Skin Suggetion

    BIG SUGGESTION HERE Actually a rather small but what i feel is detrimental to survivors health on the aberration without. I have been using my Glider Suit Skin for a little bit know, just jumping from the local rock walls and tall ladders we have built. Since it is a skin it is wonderful, its a craft and keep till you lose it affair. Wonderful!!! However, it instead of the actual wind suit losing life, it uses the chest piece armors durability while in use. I think this is great, better chest piece, better flight time. Spot on idea really. But, for the love of Christmas!!!.....can we get a HUD icon similar to TEK items that shows the active wearer the wing suit durability left.....i just fell about 100 feet, luckily not dying lol. Because my cloth chest piece broke. Just a suggestion that i feel could greatly improve playability. I can always look in my inventory to see what it is at prior to jumping....but what if I'm being chased by a wild pack of Ravagers....god i hate those things...
  10. Why isnt this fxed yet it has been broken for months now someone needs to get on this now didnt spend money on a game that i cant play
  11. So I did the Alpha Ascension achievement so I could get the clown skin to joke around in singleplayer and it gave me an achievement I don't want it as a steam achievement, Is there a way to reset my achievements, I'm okay with earning all of the ones I got vanilla back, I just don't feel right with a cheated achievement! Please let me know if there is a way, I honestly thought it would just give me the skin so I could take a few screenshots with a Unicorn I found. I've only genuinely earned four achievements and now I feel bad for teleporting or godmoding to certain locations to get them, and the Alpha Ascension achievement is killing me! I just got the season pass and I started to mess around on scorched earth and got some of these achievements I don't want! I earned First Day, First Dino, First Ride, and Rex Rider all genuinely! I don't wanna get banned or anything, I just want it fixed if it can be. Though it is a little stupid that commands can give achievements, not being mean or anything!
  12. placement of smithys

    Can the ark devs fix the smithy to where i can place it closer to walls, because it seems it forces me to have a big gap between the smithy and wall
  13. I have not been able to play ark for almost an entire week due to the fact that whenever I try to load up a singleplayer game it either freezes before it attempts to load or attempts to load and then the screen turns black with the only visible icon being the loading bar with the text 'PrimalGameData_BP'. Please get this to Studio Wildcards attention to fix this bug as I know I am definitely not the only one to suffer from this issue (P.S. It is not because of being below system requirements as I have been able to run the game perfectly fine before about a week ago) Thhank You.
  14. Dragon Issue possibly fix

    Hey guys we might found a fix for unoffical servers that suffer from the flying away Dragon in the Ragnarok Bossfight. Solution: find your SAVED folder of your Server Copy folder "SAVED" to your desktop or an other save folder (not in your server install) create a NEW Serverinstallation (not a reinstall a complete fresh install from steam) paste your SAVED folder in the new serverinstallation in the according place start your server this should fix that issue BE AWARE - if you are using CACHE from ASM for fresh instalation of servers - you need to delete that !! ASM CACHE folders content need to be deleted please let me know if you can confirm that this fix was first found from @Baradine Allawa on our discord THANK YOU Für deutsche User hier ist eine Übersetzung für euch: https://arkforum.de/index.php?thread/18504-möglicher-fix-des-drachenboss-problems-auf-inoffiziellen-ragnarok-servern/
  15. As many may know it's such a pain in the A to switch from official to legacy. First, that's something I consider a bug plus leads into my report. Devs need to make it easier to access the server lists. The drop down where you select legacy, dedicated, official etc. You cannot just click join ark then the drop down to select what's servers you want.... which again leads to my bug report. You gotta click join ark. Let some servers load then go back to the main screen. Wait a little and then click join ark again and hope it let's you select the server list. By hope I mean this. I've just now as we speak tried going to main menu then back into the server list to select legacy. If you go into servers, back to main screen, then back to servers the game 99% of the time freezes and completely crashes. It's done this as far back as I can remember. Is it seriously that hard to select the server list? Please fix.... also! If you select favorites for quick access to your servers. If you use an ob to transfer your chare tor from one server to another, the favorites list changes back to official or whatever your on. This should stay on favorites. When it doesn't you gotta go back through crashing to try and find your servers again. Such a pain..
  16. Help with stuck wyvern pls

    I play on pve na ragnarok server. Currently have a wyvern stuck inside a glitched rock wall, going on 5 days now. I have tried every suggestion, and a number of players on our server even came together and tried to help release the stuck creature, to no avail. He is stuck in the hidden metal cave. NW CORNER near swamp islands and land bridge (near the canyon opening inside the break away cave wall). I know this is a bad catch point because many players related stories of stuck dinos. Most can be retrieved after much struggling, but the consensus is that this wyvern is to far into the wall to have a chance. Have tried leaving on wander and follow. Tried whips(x6). tried commanding to location. Even KO'd and told to follow a bird across sand bar.. No luck at all.. If anyone out there deals with this stuff... Just wondering if admin can come teleport wyvern out of wall, before the patch. If there is any way to do this it would be swell. Here's to hoping....
  17. I had this issue for a while, my computer is beyond fast enough to run the game, the support team wasn't very helpful. I did find a solution that has worked for every single person I told it to, if you have the same crash then please try this. After the crash, or if you've already crashed today, restart your computer. If it crashes again, restart the computer again, keep this up till it stops crashing. It should only take a couple resets then the game will stay on problem free. It sounds simple but it will work.

    theres troodons every where you walk!!!! they are so broken and its getting on my nerves!
  19. Help with stuck wyvern pls

  21. Fix Ragnarok Please

    Ragnarok is a great map but it's already proving to be anti-raft. I've lost 2 rafts to two different locations on a official PvP Ragnarok server while driving/sailing the raft over a certain part of the water, causing it to completely destroy itself like as if black hole instantly swallowed it up, and teleported my character far away - then, I was doing a U-turn near the shore on my new raft and it suddenly shot up into the sky, literally... the raft was floating and I was stuck inside, so I couldn't do anything but log out and then when I logged back in, it was instantly, fully destroyed. This is getting ridiculous and I cannot be bothered building on rafts anymore. All of those hours wasted on building a fully-covered stone raft with plant X, smithy, pres bin, forges, etc. all gone within the blink of an eye thanks to glitches on Ragnarok. I also recorded it.
  22. Get a few Dev's and have them join PvE servers and if they find pillars/land claim made setups, that are beyond expected range from a players base (generally pillars that are the second+ layer out from the base. One layer out is of course understandable for expansion and preventing people building tooooooo close for comfort but a second pillar layer is overkill) or just flat out, in the middle of nowhere (along entire beach coasts / covering mountains / entire mini island masses) then just have them remove them without any warning. Take a random time, once or twice during a week to do this and new players will begin building in the previously claimed areas for their own bases. You get these players who talk about how they are protecting the servers resources while having 50+ pillars scattered around a biome, if not giant doors that cut off primary pathways to the rest of the map on foot. People will of course try to re-pillar IF they actually notice their pillars are suddenly gone and if it becomes a problem on specific servers where too much land is being reclaimed over and over by the same person/tribe then issuing warnings and temp bans can happen. If they put pillars back near a new players base then that new player will have the rights to contact Support and the offending pillar player may receive some form of punishment if not a warning about their griefing of another players base. Knowing the Dev's are taking down pillars manually will spread to the PvE servers pointing out that pillaring too far from your base is just a waste of time and they should do more productive things. Gamers have low patience for simple things. They will take forever for a Wyvern because it's a Wyvern but their pillars being taken down is just a tedious task and there's a Wyvern they want to add to their collection of 5 other Wyverns. Tack on the possibility of temporary bans and the rate of pillar spam drops even more. 'Wyverns or banned for the weekend because you put ladders on hunks of wood.' Tough choice. I got on try out Ragnarok now at an updated map size and, while not every PvE server in NA but I can figure MOST of them, were full of nothing but bases and pillars at every possible location leaving a tiny bit of space to build a base in most of the decent areas that are not full of slopes and cliff sides. Beach coast with 0 bases and full of pillars, grassy plains with a few bases and a river running through them and layers of pillars, you get the idea. The only other non manual idea is just to make it so you need X amount of building pieces to be connected to give a radius that prevents players from building too close. Anything too small would have a reduced preventative radius (thatch huts for the night/offline player). I'm no game designer but automatic stuff is most likely harder to do compared to manual removal and warnings/punishments. People get banned from Customer Support Player Abuse Reports so it's not like repeat pillar offenders is hard to handle.
  23. Omnidirectional Lamppost Bug

    Hey there, we are encountering a bug involving our lampposts. Everytime we set the light intensity to "medium" and change server/log off it sets it back to "high". Its really annoying tbh greetings
  24. The center purple rain glitch

    Please fix the center map, whenever it rains in the redwoods everything goes purple or blue. I can't believe you release the game that has such a glitch in it
  25. Water pipes need a small fix ;)

    Let's say you are not happy with your water pipes and want to destroy them, you can't entirely destroy them and loads of water pipes are left flying in the air... forever. We need a small fix on this as I didn't know you couldn't connect to water well's and near the green ob's water "pond". Now my water pipes are just flying there and it looks ugly.
