      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. Can anyone with experience help me, i am running windows 10 got 250Mbit/s connection speed. Seems whenever i patch my download speed is bad, 12,3 gig took me about 4hours speed drops often to 0, tried settings changing locations that did not help. So i hit finally the 12.3gig and it got cancelled for a strange reason and starts over again. Got enough HD space. this seems only to happen with ark Would appreciate any help/tips.
  2. TLC Phase 3 Suggestions

    I have a VERY good suggestion i just came up with today. So, because the Kairuku (Penguins) are pretty much useless other than a bit of fortitude when you are near them, I want them to act a bit like the diplocaulus, where you can hold on to them while in the water and they will propel you forward and be very quick. They wont give you any oxygen or anything, but they will have a use! I really think it would be useful!
  3. Game wont update

    On a recent install the game sits at 278.46 and nothing I can do will update it to .66. I.e verifying files, clean installs, update drivers, check for updates on steam ect. I submitted a ticket, however its gone for over 3 days without a reply from the support team. Any ideas?
  4. On today's episode of "What the Patch Messed Up This TIme" we go over exactly what went wrong when the latest update was made to the game. Feb 16, 2018 approx 6:30 pm EST The update goes live and the servers are taken down for maintenance. No client side download this time! The game drops us all for a few minutes upon attempting to log in. I give it 15 minutes or so. Upon logging in I discover that both of my tames have woken up. Before the patch they were at full torpor; the 145 megalosaurus was at 98% taming and the 100 megalo was about 80% starved. (I also found out that someone had stolen the 100 Valentine's megalo and refuses to give or sell it to me, I'm pissed). 15 minutes after the servers come back online, a series of crashes drops everyone repeatedly and the server is still quite laggy at this moment. Anyone else have their tames wake up for no reason? Experience a rollback/crashing? Etc etc?
  5. After todays update 14th Feb 2018 I started getting crashes already on the server list page while downloading mods. THought It might be a mod problem so unsubscribed to all, deleted the mods files, ran a file verification but the problem persisted. I uninstalled all of ARK and installed it on another drive if the drive was the faul but keep getting the same problem and have not been aboe to get into any files the whole day so have spent about 6 hours total on this.
  6. 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.
  7. TLC patch this weekend ?

    Anyone else is worried by the TLC patch they're going to push to comp servers this weekend ? TLC means upgraded graphics, means high textures... What kind of patch size can we expect in your opinion ? My slow connection is going to suffer... Again, and i think we're numerous in this case. And by the way, isn't it possible for WC to push a "pre-download" of a patch like a week in advance, so people aren't stuck when a big patch magically hits the servers ? Just my thoughts...

My cpu is a I7 8700K with water cooling, just needed to say that, haha :-P Anyways, yesterday before the patch i was running 60 to 75 fps. I call it the good times! But today after patch i'm running 30 and less! in the same base.. Please revert the patch if you cant fix! or add DX12 :-P please :-) Best regards Shepard FuryOfArk Servers.
  10. Patch Platform Order?

    All, Does anyone know the patch "order" for platforms now that win10 with crossplay has been added? Let me clarify: It used to be PC (steam) would get the patch, and sometime after Xbox would receive it. Now there's PS4, as well as Win10. I would assume Win10 gets updated same as X1, but that doesn't seem to be the case, as I'm experiencing bugs on Win10 that my xbox tribe mates had patched back on 12-21. Really I'm trying to get an idea as to when my version will be patched to get caught up to the X1. I'm also trying to figure out why the Win 10 version isn't updated with Steam, being that they are essentially the same version. Also, does anyone know how/when the Nitrado servers are updated when an update goes live? I guess finally: Anyone know when Win10 is getting the most recent patch that fixes a number of Aberration issues?
  11. So something in this last unknown patches made our cloning stop and wiped from the cloner. Thanks WILD CARD
  12. how about some notes on what your changing so we know if we need to adjust mods or servers? This is 3 updates so far with out notes on what your changing, this is full release game, not a beta.......
  13. Update glitch?

    After doing an Ark update today when I restarted the game, all of my items were still present and at the appropriate level but my engrams were gone going back to level 1. I have tried a hard restart and dying, none of these worked. Anyone out there have a solution?
  14. Megalania Toxin 12/15/17

    I don't know if something was overlooked in the last couple patches but since yesterday every time we kill meglania, we are getting titanboa venom and not meglania toxin. Please look into this.
  15. Linux v275.0 missing

    So once again, big patch comes around and Linux patch is nowhere to be seen, any ETA?
  16. crash The Bad Stat of the game

    The Bad Stat of the game Hello Everyone, I wanted to address the bad state of the game and talk to you guys about my experiences running a server. We started a Ragnarok server 3 month ago and we where hoping the game would be ready. Now that the game was finished, it should have been a lot of fun. I do think the normal player had fun with the game and when it's running it seemed okay in the beginning. However as an admin there where a lot of painful setup problems with ASM and Ark it self. Most of the problems where related to bad or no descriptions of settings and having to find stuff on the forums all the time! We also ran in to another problem after a while. We suddenly had big performance problems with the server i had used before, we did eventually solve this by changing settings and getting a monster server that was rented for 100 Eu a month. However even with that it still ran a little janky.. This brings me to the next point, this game is riddled with bugs and strange physics. There is to many to remember them all but one of the most strange things to me is the constant desync of player placement and character placement. The issue also translate in to arrows not hitting where they should be hitting. There are tons of other bugs! We have decided to shutdown our server. You can read more here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/FuryOfArk/discussions/0/1488866180615241737/ The biggest problem however, where the bad patches the broke the game almost every weekend. It also had a bad effect on some of the mods we where using and we where only running 10 basic mods. Most notable was problems with updates to the game that effected structures plus and Offline Raid Protection 2(ORP2). It was not problems with the mods but changes to the game that then after a day would get fixed. This created a lot of fatal errors on the server and frustration as an admin! In short, this game is a horrible experience as an admin, and people always blame us for all the patch problems. I also think that performance is to bad, the game is not in a playable state atm! The turret change is not enough to fix this issues. In time hardware will become better and bugs might be fixed but for now this game is in a bad state and not worth wasting your time on!
  17. 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.
  18. WC, Everytime you publish a patch, I run the risk of my baby/jvuenile dinos dieing due to that horrendous render glitch. They have food and sit next to troughs. I've lost countless dinos now, sucking each one up because who has time to wait months for customer support. Server mates have lost their 80% matured gigas. Either fix the raptoring issue or stop patching every few hours.
  19. Still can't join servers

    What did today's almost 200 MB patch do? I still can't join servers and haven't seen anything different in the title screen. What was the patch? And when can we expect a fix for the issues joining servers?
  20. Mindwipe Tonic Re-work

    Would you guys mind reworking the mindwipe tonic patch? As of now you can only wipe once per level and when you get to max level you are stuck with the engrams you have learned unable to unlock the new dlc engrams without creating a new character first. How about adding a system where you can only mindwipe once per real life month or after a amount of time, that way you cannot wipe constantly giving the older players access to new engrams with newer ways to play and balancing out gameplay?
  21. So ever since the latest patch that opened the bit of desert area, I have been getting host connection timeouts when trying to go near that areas. This is on an unofficial server and this has never happened to me before - only after the latest patch. I have been on the borders of these new areas before the patch with no issues. Can anyone recommend a fix?

    Hello, Wild Card & Players I am going to run you threw some points that are just horrible & other things that should be done differently because the game isn't perfect by all means. I will list of all the ideas and things I see wrong with ark today that should be fix, changed, or re-thought... 1) (Fix) Baryonyx - Well I am sure you all know how horrible the Baryonyx even level 5 or 15 is depending on map, How they are in water.. I can be max level and have pretty good flak on & i have a 90% chance of dying. There water spin stun effect is so horrible and broken. I should not die by a Baryonyx that level, But guess what it happens because you cant even attack before getting stunned again. Can't move and just getting beat alive by the Baryonyx. Total garbage! (Note: The Spin Stun Attack how often it can use the attack should be lowed by 50% so it takes 50% longer for him to do another spin attack. 2) (Fix) Ichthyornis - Really my items are gone if he takes it. Anyhow that is so annoying and horrible its one of the top hated creatures in ARK. The Ichthyornis should always drop non eatable items to the ground as a item box. Not completely lost for ever. Only thing the Icthyornis should take and eat and loose that item is food items. All meats, Kibbles, Berries, Seeds, Mushrooms, Flowers, and any other consumables. PLEASE FIX THIS! 3) (Change) Platform Saddled Dino Turrets - Platform Saddled Dino's should be able to have auto turrets again that was a dumb removal back in the past. Then the game was fun. Anyhow what needs to happen is just have it limited on how many turrets you can have on a dino depending on the type of dino to no more then 4 to 5 turrets at most. That will give them dino's more war purpose again. 4) (Change) Flyer Nerf - That should have never happened the way it did either. It was a slap in the face to all the dino's that everyone worked so hard on. *This is how it should have been nerfed: Speed should be go by dino type such as Argentavis it should go by the level of the dino if you have a breed level 300 Argentavis it should go much faster then a fresh tamed level 25 Agentavis. That way it will give more meaning for the bird breeders. 5) (Fix) Ark Transferring - Obelisk should be the only place you can bring tames out & loot out of. Loot Drops should never be able to pull dino's out of & equipment. Drops should be only used for uploading or transferring a character that is it. There is no cross-ark strategy for a guy pulling 10 giga's out of his butt cheeks 50 feet from your base. 6) (Fix) Ark Transferring - Idea number two: I think there should be a limit weekly & daily how many transfers you can do. Because being the little guy and someone bringing 10 to 20 giga's out of a loot drop by your base its no chance for a smaller tribe. It's exactly what ran me off the game and why i play it so much less now & the nerfs. 7) (Change) Tek Tier - Its just lame when you have guys on the map that starting out and only have stone building & you have these guys that have Tek and they want the server for them self's... Its just lame... *Tek Tier should have been just like Primitive + a Standalone game mode with low Tek up to High End Tek. They should never put guys with sticks fighting off guys with plasma guns... Its just stupid. 8) (Fix & Change) Menu & Options Screens - I am color blind I have 45' TV and I still cant read anything unless I am 2 feet from the tv. The blue menu they changed to is really horrible choice of colors.. Layout of then menu's are fine but I cant read anything in that hexagonal looking blue menu to craft or anything... You should be able to set up the color as you choose for the menu's.. PLEASE! 9) (CHANGE) Mindwipe - The mindwipe change is horrible that mean people have to make new characters when they shouldn't have too... If you want mindwipes to have a bad effect make them loose 5 levels each mindwipe they do. To slow down the use of it, but it should be unlimited again because that's just more characters the database has to hold because people want different builds. It was dumb making mindwipe's only one use per level. Thanks for reading and hope you read my thought... Really beating at them points because they hurt the game for me and I know many others that feel the same way. Also i will try to update and add more thoughts to this post. Take care & enjoy my post.

  24. For two days, I have a connection timeout while trying to connect at my lunch time. Today, my client version is 271.12 and the server is at 271.11. In Ark Newwork Status, it states that the servers are currently upgrading to v271.11. I can see that some people are able to connect to the server (NA-PVP-NoTek-Ragnarok-CrossArk6). Is it because their game version (client) are not updated yet and they are able to connect? If it's the case, is it possible for me to rollback to a previous client version? Thank you
  25. 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
