      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.

      Official PC: Hard Turret Limit begins on 18th of February at 1PM ET   02/16/18

      On the 18th of February, at 1PM ET we will be enabling the hard turret limit on all PC Official Servers. This means that you will not be able to build over 100 turrets within a 10k unit radius. This will work on autoturrets, heavy turrets, tek turrets, plus plant turrets and is no longer map specific. The hard limit calculation is done on start-up, so if your turrets are ever over the limit, they will be randomly shut-off until you're under the limit. In order to restore shut off turrets, you must pick up any which exceed the number, as well as shut-off turrets and replace them in order for them to work.

  1. Okay... I have a very nice computer and it runs very well. I am trying to make a dedicated server for me and my friend to play around in, on PS4. I am hosting the dedicated server on PC but I will actually be joining it on PS4. The problem is that, (I have no mods enabled) the second that I click the host dedicated server button, the game immediately crashes and shows the picture on this post. I have tried doing the dedicated server on the maps, The Island and Ragnarok and neither of them work. I have restarted my computer, done updates on ark and my computer and nothing works. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!
  2. Здравствуйте.Это сервер ковчег, войдя в луч обелиск и тому подобное ( проверка кэша , удалил АРК от пара и модов просто не удалить Windows удалить Windows и Вы не хотите ) пожалуйста, помогите ( пишет : соединение потеряно ).

    During the rollback for primitive plus on THE ISLAND of course RIGHT BEFORE 3x...I get back on and my giga disappeared and my life was ruined... no but seriously.. I spent two real weeks of REALITY raising that little bundle of melee power, for it to just be taken out of the safety of my home to be god knows where right now ?! Not okay wildcard... not cool. Can I get some assistance here.
  4. Hi I’ve played through the island and accended to gamma and bata level so now I’ve just started ragnarok which I’m really enjoying the map but I have only just realised I can change my game mode to play on primitive plus, which I’m exited to try out! The only thing is I don’t want it to override my current save on ragnarok as I’ve just hatched two pretty high level wyverns(which as you can imagine took a lot of hard grinding). So I was wondering if anyone could give me a little advice, can I start a new game on prim plus on the ragnarok map or will that override my current save? I’m an Xbox one player btw(don’t know if that makes a difference)
  5. I just downloaded the update for Valentine's Day about an hour ago and the update paused itself several times. My boyfriend's pc sitting right beside me (identical specs on the pc) downloaded in moments without a problem. But once my update finally finished about 40min later through the stops and starts I loaded the game up and now the screen is flashing with thick green horizontal lines. It never did this before this update. No windows updates happened that I'm aware of and I've already validated the steam files (in progress of running it a second time as it found files the first validation that needed to be reaquired). UPDATE: I loaded after the 2nd validation (it found 2 files) - still green lines. I switched to windowed full screen rather than fullscreen and the lines went away but returned upon switching back to fullscreen like I always play it. I don't understand this.
  6. Help I need to figure out what would be a great dino that can harvest rare mushrooms and rare flowers. Would a level 70 raptor be able to defend well in the swamp?
  7. Non-Dedicated Player Tether Glitch

    So, my friend and I have been playing Ark non-dedicated servers for a while now, and we recently decided to check out ark. We found a really gorgeous place to build and started to set up, just to discover that my friend apparently can't explore anywhere. he can explore wherever I happen to be, or if he's in an area where I was before I moved out of it, but on some sections of the map, he gets randomly, abruptly teleported to me- even if I can SEE where he is- usually no more than 100m away. I had the tether distance set to maximum (300), and when that failed, I turned it all the way up to 12,000 to try and eliminate the problem. That failed too. Please help, as this more or less makes the map unplayable for he and I if we both have to constantly be in the same place at the same time to do anything. We like to explore and do work on our own sometimes, and we dont always want to be in the same location. Normally, we can play on The Island at distances something like from the southern coast all the way up past the snow zones on the north without ANY teleportation issues whatsoever.
  8. I'm on the center map, playing single player because my internet it to bad to join other players. But i'm trying to learn the cloning chamber engram so i can use it. But the command im using isnt working. I'm on Primitive+ Xbox one if that has any effect at all. I've tried learning non tek stuff as well, that won't work either. This is the exact command im using - unlockengram "Blueprint'/Game/PrimalEarth/CoreBlueprints/Items/Structures/BuildingBases/PrimalItemStructure_TekCloningChamber.PrimalItemStructure_TekCloningChamber'" Please help! Thanks
  9. Hey all! So we have a dedicated server on our home PC running the Windows 10 copy of Ark. The server account (PC) only has the basic ark game, where as myself has the complete dlc collection too. I noticed last night that I couldn't build a windmill which is a SC Engram. Does this mean that I'd have to buy it on the server account to enable this? And in doing so would it prevent my girlfriend from joining & playing as she also only has the basic game? Any info would be great as it's Friday and a weekend of gaming is what the doctor called for!!
  10. So I've played on multiple servers where the Loot Drops are boosted slightly but they are relatively inexpensive (compared to official's rates) but I cannot seem to find a setting where I can change the expense of the blueprints. If anybody knows, please let me know. It would be truly appreciated.
  11. 277 tribe inventory bug

    I am hosting a non dedicated server on Ragnarok. Since the v277 patch my tribe file (i think) har become corrupt. I, as admin, have no problems but the other tribe member can’t interract with anything. She can’t press E to interract, when she does nothing happens. Her own inventory is showing empty, but shouldn't. When she tried creating a whole new survivor, who was then not a memeber, everything worked until she became a tribe member and tried interracting with anything. Then she got the ”recieving remote inventory” message, after that she could not interract with anything and the game started to glitch. We have tried several times creating new survivors and the same thing happens. Even when she tried taking over the dinos to her tribe with the admincheat, it still wouldn't work properly. We have both tried validating the game files in steam, restarted our computers and, clearing the steam download cache. We have spent 2 days trying to solve this problem but nothing works. We had hopes the latest small patch would fix it but alas it didn’t. We would really hate to lose all our tribe progress, and I don’t want to play single player on this server.
  12. Hey my sens has always been okay(ish) but the zoom always worked just fine. Ever since I turned mouse smoothing off (to false) from the BaseInput file it made it that much better in third person / first person aiming, I didn't feel any input lagg or weird sluggish movement BUT ever since i've done that my scoped sensitivity is completely messed up , its at like 200% the speed is insanely fast and impossible to control. I have obviously tried changing ""bEnableMouseSmoothing" back to True (default) and my zoomed/scoped in sensitivity is STILL messed up. Anyone got any ideas ? Appreciate all help.
  13. Clicking play doesn't work

    So about 20 minutes ago I finished downloading the 7.3GB Update and was excited to go play. So I clicked play and no message popped up telling me its launching, which I thought was stange but ignored it and watched youtube while I wait. After it doesn't launch in 1 minute I click play again. Nothing happens. I try clicking the desktop app but that doesn't help either. I can't ever verify the integrity of the game files. I have ~120 hours of gameplay and this has never happened to me before. OS: Windows 10 GTX 1060, i5 7400, 16GB RAM
  14. Ark PC Hosting...

    I purchased ark through a digital download and I am trying to host a game from my pc and play on my xbox... Is that possible, i already have ark on both xbox and pc through the play anywhere update. I can't find to invite my xbox from my pc.Thanks for your help!
  15. “Undermapping”

    I’m sure I’m not the only one frusturated about this issue, but something has to be done @devs. Why do people who under the map bases get no consequences, and people who build under the map to protect themselves get dev wiped??! This is so unfair and makes the game unplayable in my opinion. This has been an issue for so long - WHY ISNT IT FIXED
  16. So, I want to buy my own server and transfer my wyverns and everything in it. I'm just wondering if this is even possible?
  17. I run a player dedicated ragnarok server with 20 people daily. Theres never lag bronto saddles are banned. Its been up for about 2-3 weeks and it just started to crash. Alot daily like 5 times were it gets annoying. I own the server i dont abuse. The stats arnt op were its bad or were it lags server. Speed is about 250 bit lower. Its on ps4 and this is a bluescreen ce dashboard error (game crashes) every reset this has happened after 2-3 weeks after 5 total resets so far can anyone help? I will also include screenshots of my base my dino count etc. And the error code when it happens which will probaly be really soon.
  18. Dedicated Server Ziplines

    This is a bit of a repost, so I can get a bit more exposure and hopefully someone whom has fixed this issue in the past. Last night, ziplines stopped working properly on my personal dedicated server, sometime after killing the boss (and losing all our stuff). I see at least two others have the same issue. Full details in the following post; Anyone else had/have this issue. Did you manage to solve it? I have a niggling feeling that it is something I've done, but ARK does have its bugs...
  19. I’m experiencing a new glitch where every time I try to transfer to or join any ragnorok server it won’t allow me to download character and eventually times out. Although I can join any other server on my official Notame cluster. I’ve contacted support without any response.
  20. No Season Pass Skins Help!

    I was jumping around on the wiki, which I do often as there is always something to learn about this game, but I found out that there are skins that you obtain from purchasing the season pass. I’m not getting any of the skins. Any idea as to why that may be?

  22.

  23. I’m playing on the island, and my friend transferred from a different server and gave me a basilisk. I buried it in the ground and now I can’t unbury it!!! I believe the only way I am now able to get it out, is with the help of ARK support or if I could somehow transfer it into the ARK data by using a term transmitter. Since it is not able to move, take damage, or get knocked out, I am seeking someone out there to please help a guy out or have any advice on how to get it usable again.
  24. My internet crapped out on Saturday and ever since we got it fixed my boyfriend and I have had issues with what seems to be a really bad tethering issue. We are playing Abberation, he is hosting on a non dedicated server and our computers are right next to each other. Before the internet got messed up we had our tethering turned up to 999999999(etc) and had no issues being far away from each other. Now, whenever he leaves the base, it pulls me to his location and says “out of range” on the top. He read that some people said to just put the tethering to 99 but when we tried that I still got pulled away really quickly. This issue is making it hard to play the game how we want to and it’s very frustrating. I was wondering if anyone else has had a issue similar to this or if anyone has any ideas on how to fix it? Thanks!
  25. I'm having problems finding reference to this anywhere, but can a Homing Underwater Mine go after a raft and/or motorboat? If so, what kind of damage does it doe? Does it ignore foundations that are lowered into the raft? Thanks in advance!
