  1. THANK YOU FOR CLICKING ON RCGAMING.COM THE GIST So my cousin and I are looking for a server and he finds one where we are out leveled and they already have Wyverns and Gigas and all that fun stuff, right? We end up catching up and we're just bored at that point there is nothing going on, no point and no purpose, so we get this idea to maybe just start our own server with some *structure*. Needless to say we both liked the idea, and to test it out we got a 10 person server to mess with, so consider you select few as beta testers. So get a load of this The Idea: This is by far not a new idea, but I haven't come across a server like it yet. But let's make this clear MICS ARE REQUIRED, no if, ands, or buts. The idea is that we have 2 "teams" or "tribes" split up evenly, for us it will be 5 and 5, and put on opposite sides of the map in which the opposite side MAY NOT spawn at (*structure*). Each team will start with absolutely nothing and build from the bottom up like the game wills us to do, brutally may I add. As each city builds up and each city gets more tames you you can attack each other's base(s) at will and each has a chance to defend itself. You may raid and grief the city as much as you like and force them to rebuild until you are dead . That is after all the point of a defense. But There Are Rules! 1.) No switching tribes or going "lone-wolf" (Not yet anyway, only a 10 slot server) 2.) You are stuck with the tribe you have no inviting friends or banishing one from the tribe (But no one said anything about trading...) 3.) No more than 5 bases outside of the city 4.) If caught (and we will catch you) raiding/destroying/f**king up a city or base with a SINGLE line of defense (meaning at least 2 people from the opposite tribe must be on) you will be banned immediately. Sorry charlie. 5.) A Microphone is required. Your Tribe can use either Playstation Chat or the Ark Chat, whichever you prefer, but all must be in it (That are currently in the game of course) no loners. 6.) Have fun. I know it seems like a lot of rules, but its structure for a successful server and until NITRADO creates a better server host that allows more structure, we must keep the peace!

  4. I just purchased my first rented server from Nitrado for PS4. I have been working on tweaking my settings all night. I spawned myself in a Griffin but it spawned in at zero health and zero XP. Also, the Dino/Griffin i spawned in isn't gaining any XP over time either. It is sitting at zero and not moving. What settings do i need to change so that any animals I admin spawn into my game aren't a millisecond away from death? Please help! As I would like to make this server public soon and remove the password.

  8. Otter On Shoulder Issue

    I have a visual glitch for otters when they are on my shoulder and only my shoulder. When I have an otter on my shoulder it looks like it's been distorted trying to map to my character. This makes the otter look like it's been flattened. Please help. Anything I can do other than start a new character?
  9. I've played this game since about 2 months of it being in Early Access, and I just made an account for the forums as I never had any issues. Now I do. After the game was fully released, I wanted to play very badly, I downloaded the update, and I got this error, i thought it was just something with my PC, so I brought it to GeekSuad to get help. I have it back and I get this message still. Someone please tell me how to fix this! It would be greatly appreciated!
  10. So I'm in the cave in ragnarok that's by the dino tail bridge near vikings bay. Has anyone else built there and been able to get water without building a huge pipe system? I was hoping it would rain in there but it doesnt seem to work. Any help would be appreciated.
  11. Heya! i have come across this issue since i started playing again. Whenever i open a supply drop or an ark on official; my game freezes and it is as if i press the button to leave the game. When I am back in the main menu i get the timeout/disconnect error. Tried unsubscribing to ALL workshop items; verifying game files. Is anyone else experiencing this; and how could i possibly solve this? i would love to get some beacon drops and to transfer some SE stuff to the island thanks in advance!
  12. Does anyone play in the Xbox cross ark clusters? You are aware they are all missing maps? Help me get the deva attention on twitter and here please!?!
  13. Help Ragnarok

    Does anyone know of any Xbox pve official ragnarok servers that aren't completely filled 24/7. I'm still looking for one and have had no luck. Any help or info would be great.
  14. Lowering Dino ammout?

    Me an my mate recently started playing ark, on our own non dedicated server (ragnarok) an one problem we have ran into is a large number of dragons, elementals, an brontosaurs. Iv tried looking up how to change these but I'm a noob when it comes to editing game files an not sure what to look for on editing SPEICIFIC dinos.. For example, we went otter hunting the other day, to a place otters are supposed to be more abundant, an instantly ran into 5-6 dragons where these otters are supposed to be, its so dangerous there, we havnt gone back lol. We also just discovered rock elementals. One was near our main base, we took care of it, but now there are four! imo, elementals and dragons should be MUCH rarer then what we have seen. I would like to lower the amount of dragons an elementals in our game, as well as a few less brontosaurs (they are big, very buggy, and annoying!) What code would I have to enter in for each of these 3? Please be specific >.< I'm not sure where it is in the game file I'm looking for, I tried finding something called "DinoCountMultiplier" but it wasn't in the "GameUserSettings.ini" Is it possible to lower/adjust a specific dino for a non dedicated server?
  15. Recently on the player dedicated server I play on, the host had adjusted some of the Dino stat settings. One he changed was the speed setting under "Dino Add Per Level." This affects the speed that certain dinosaurs gain when they are first tamed. We had this setting on 5x previously, and it had somehow gotten reset back to default. When the host set it back to 5, all creatures that receive movement speed when tamed show that they have an increased speed stat, but they move no faster than if it were set to 1 rather than 5. If a new dinosaur is tamed, there is no issue, but any tames from before the setting change have their speed bugged. I couldn't find any information on this, and was wondering if anyone could help me find a fix for it.
  16. Snake eggs

    How do you guys get snake eggs, without taming them? We currently don't have spare eggs with the x2 breeding event but we need some thylos in our lives. So how do you guys do it. If a trap, can you specify the design. I tried with a 2x8 and gates on each side. Had 20 in there and watched it for an hour to no avail. Not even one egg. What's the secret?
  17. Unknown Error anyone?

    I keep getting an unknown error when trying to log into a server. anyone else having this problem?
  18. Joining failed: Unknown Error

    People still have this problem. Can't believe they are not doing nothing to fix this problem... I was playing this morning without a problem, go out for 2 hours, then i came to play again and surprise!! I can't join to any server, it always says " Unknown Error, Join Failed" now i found out this happened specially today to a lot more people... I hope wildcard do something soon, is not fair to buy a game that you can't play...
  19. Ohhh my god am I the only one who wishes Dino's would just ask for they're preferred kibble instead of some off the wall bs that I couldn't tame because tame limit is 200 seriously wildcard either remove tame limit or make to where Rex's (plus every other Dino too) don't ask for freaking terror bird kibble knowing they eat scorpion kibble. Or you could do both remove tame limit and that random kibble bs.
  20. Help!

    I tried to play on the new dlc map Ragnarok and it said must ascend gamma to beta to unlock and I don't know what to do next so PLEASE HELP!!!
  21. i've been on a server for a while.. he's switched maps a couple of times so i know its not the map. he has upped the quality of loot drops. so we get ascendent almost once every crate. however i got an ascendent saddle bp, it has the exact same armour and durability as primitive. and to make the saddle its the same materials as primitive. but shows as ascendent? does anyone know how to fix this?
  22. Hopefully someone can help? On my nitrado dedicated server one of our players has tried to transfer to another server in our cluster and his character has disappeared. Is there anyway I can get it back for him or if he creates a new character give him his levels back and his old structures and dinosaurs?
  23. So i just got back from a 2 week holiday, while i was away ark was released. So when i got home i downloaded all the updates and started playing, i noticed the problem when i got on my Pteranodon and started flying. It's not easy to describe and i can attach a video if my explanation doesn't come clear. Whenever i turn with my mouse on the Pteranodon it has some kind of delay, so the 3rd person camera looks in that direction that i turn to before the Pteranodon, same happens when i look up or down. Very strange problem and is happening on all flyers. It makes picking people really hard in PVP and is overall quite annoying. Any help is appreciated.
  24. Upgrading graphics chip

    So I'm updating my CPU to an i7 and I want to upgrade GPU as well. Would an amd r7 m440 be better than an amd Radeon 540. And would an Intel 620 be better than both of these.
  25. Great migration Prim +

    A player logged on my server the other day and broadcasted a warning of his alpha tribe will be invading. He said it will happen when they open transfers up aug 8th. He said this confirmed by complexminded on reddit or twitter. Anyone know what he is talking about?
