  1. Rock Drake Stuck in Ground

    Me(YourBoiSlow) and my tribe(Doppelgangaz) were on a rock drake run and whilst getting attack by multiple rock drakes, mine got stuck under the surface of the map. Any way I could get help from a dev to release my drake from this glitch?
  2. 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.
  3. Hola, Soy un jugador de PS4 en el que juega en Primitive+ desde hace un tiempo, Desde el 3º dia de la salida de Aberration en el modo Primitive+ faltan cosas, mas bien dicho DINOSAURIOS, Solo tenemos Ravagers, Rock Drake, Bulbdog, Roll Rat, Karkino, y algunos pocos mas, me gustaria que volviese ser como el primer dia que habia Espinos, Raptors y Paracetariums por todos lados, Por faltar faltan los engramas y algunos fallos del juego, pero lo mas importante creo que sera que vuelvan los dinos, no se si es por un error en el codigo fuente del modo primitive+ pero espero que alguien me lea o haga algo para hacer llegar esto a alguien para que pueda mirarlo o arreglarlo puesto que el unico servidor de Europa no tiene nada mas que 7 dinos y estoy un poco harto de tamear Ravagers y Roll Rat, lo de los engramas en cierto modo hasta resulta divertido ir de drop en drop esperando a que salgan los blueprints nuevos pero PORFAVOR PONER LOS DINOS COMO EN EL SERVIDOR OFICIAL, A ALGUIEN MAS LE PASA?
  4. keys Bugged controls

    When mounted on a Rex, I'm not able to turn left or right suddenly. I've tried to change which keys make you strafe left or right, I've tried to use a game controller. Doesn't work. I'm in a particularly hostile area so this is a pretty bad time for the controls to crap out on me
  5. problem ``E´´ botton

    camasi1991 When I start the game, I wake up inside my house, and I can not go out, or open some closets, or look at the inventory of the animals inside the house, because the letter "E" does not work on the doors or what I said before, but if it works to open other things at home.I take 136 hours played, and it's the first time something like this happens to me, I hope we can fix it soon, I do not want to lose what I have! Write me, please help! aah! and I'll see if the keyboard has been deconfigured, and it's not like that ... the other letters on the keyboard go! and when i play in other servers, all works good!
  6. So I've easily been able to find my friends nitrado server by name search and I can join it, the problemis it takes FOREVER. After selecting 'join' and entering the password it just hangs on the server search menu with a 'joining session' message for 45mins - 1hr. My friend is able to join within a few minutes and I don't have a slow connection so I don't get it. The only thing I can guess is that the the search that automatically starts before you search for your server takes FORRRREEVVVERRRR and is causing the join to delay until the searchis complete. I've tried different filters to stop the search or have it finish quickly but the search that auto starts always takes an enternity and, on top of that, the server shows I have it as a favorite but when I select the favorites filter it doesn't find it. Is anyone else having this problem where it takes an hour for the game to join a nitrado server? Those who can join a nitrado server quickly, how are you doing it and what search settings do you have? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Could not retrive address

    I keep getting the could not retrieve address message when trying to join servers it happens after i play on a server once i would like to enjoy the game but its crap i want a fix or my money back
  8. Anybody have any ideas. We can go to the Obelisk, see the servers in the list to travel to, but the button to travel is greyed out. Not just me, but other players too. Any suggestions as to why and what to do? This is with no items, and at any level.

    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.
  10. Hey there, me and my wife want to play ark on one Xbox (We just have one). Problem is that I use inverted Y-Axis and my Wife is not. I can't seem to change the setting just for my character. Please help!
  11. Since patch 270 I've noticed that some of my tamed flying and swimming dinos would flee my base as soon as they are set to not follow nor wander. (Really, I've checked that they are set to disable wandering.) There is no dino around for aggression either, they don't go to another dino, but each goes to a seperate spot more or less near the base. Interestingly, the spots are more or less consistent per dino, each would go the same individual spot every time I release them. My base is located at the entrance of the eastern cave between the swamp and the southeast island. Could it be related to the loot crate periodically spawning there? Was there something changed in patch 270? And how can I finally make the dinos stay in my base again without setting them to follow another? Any help is appreciated. I am playing on a private server with Structures+ enabled, this was installed long before the problem started occuring. Attached is a (poorly drawn, but hey) illustration of my situation.
  12. Hi there, my dedicated server keeps crashing since today whenever i try to join. Yesterday it worked fine. I just quit the server and let the acutal windows pc running over night. Today the server starts easy as always. But shortly after joining it crashes with the popup attached. Has anyone advice how to fix? There have been no updates to ARK or Windows within the last time it worked. 09.11-20.12.42.crashstack Dump722804272.dmp ShooterGame.log ShooterGame-backup-2017.09.11-20.04.41.log
  13. Hello, i've been playing ark for a few days and got my character to lvl 66. Been playing on an official PvP server where i really did not like the way the thing were going. This morning i've tried switching servers but either the server which i've switched has mysteriously dissappeared either the character got deleted or maybe i just can't find the right server anymore. Can anyone help me ?

  15. Overheating PC?

    Hey, I appreciate the time taken to reply to this. I seem to have a bit of bother with Ark. I run Battlefield 1, Day Z, whatever there is fine, usually on ultra. Why does my PC get so hot when playing ark? I've barely had the PC for two months and the side casing of my PC heats up. I'm not sure if its due to my processor being OC'd to 4.0ghz rather than the standard 3.6ghz, but I don't think that is the problem. Any suggestions?
  16. Ark uninstalls every night

    Starting around a week ago, my ark has started uninstalling itself at night, when I go into steam for the first time every day, for some reason it makes me install ark again, I tried to check the files, but according to steam, there are no files, which shows that for some reason all my ark files get deleted every night. At first this happened every few days, but now it happens every day. Could someone please explain what is happening/and or how to fix this?
  17. The Tame Limit Problem

    With the latest patch on the pc we saw that platform saddles now add to the tame limit. Even without this new change, the tame limit was a little talked about problem but I am here to explain why it ruins the game and even increases lag. The tame limit is in place to limit both tribe size and lag amount. With a limit of 200 dinos, large tribes are forced to expand to other servers or form massive alliances, crushing small tribes in their path, to be able to keep all the dinos they need to compete with other tribes doing the same thing. Without a tame limit, mega tribes would be more inclined to stay on one server thus reducing overall lag and giving the little guys a fighting chance because of there not being a massive Dino pen of 40 different servers. Currently, brontos are the meta in blocking turrets. The game now is at a point where if you have enough brontos and gigas... any base can be wiped but with new changes to turrets it seems that these dinos are severely weakened and now can't compete with mega bases. If there was no tame limit, people would be able to have enough dinos to stand a fighting chance. My last point is probably the biggest and most painful, lag. The biggest causes of lag (outside of duping) are Dino movements and floating names. The names of tribe tames can be turned off but that is only a max of 200 dinos. All other allied tames still show a floating blue name thus largely contributing to lag. I won't leave you without a fix so here it is: increase the tame limit to at least 500 or remove it all together. I have made my point and hope that you agree with me <3
  18. Hello all, Currently experiencing an issue with the painting of my Wyvern. I know that painting on PS4 painting is bug city at the best of times, however I had what I thought at the time successfully painted my Wyv however upon my next login the painting has disappeared and I cannot seem to re-load it. Also painting on the Wyvern again does not work at all. I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if there is a known work-around? I have raised a ticket however I never seem to get a reply. Many thanks
  19. Official server 72 offline

    Since yesterday the server has been offline, what happened? 2 days without being able to play is reaaaaaaaaaally not nice at all. Connected right now and timed out, completely unstable. What the hell is going on?
  20. State of Ark PvP ?

    So of course Ark isn't in a great position right now but lots of improvements and fixes are happening and the developers and community managers do listen. They are respected by a lot of us players, so... with that said, I just want to relay a few important points that I've been hearing from friends on the game and the PS4 community group chats, and my own. Quite a lot of people from our server and some friends of mine have quit Ark or they've taken a break (who knows if they'll be back) recently, and a few of their reasons are some of the most obvious, like the lag/DDoSing, Duping, etc and yeah they're getting worked on, but the main point they made, was because of the balance. Now, I don't mean Club vs Sword type of PvP balance, I mean attacking a base vs defending a base, kind of balance. The main thing they mentioned, went along the lines of "We hate having to play for 500 hours to build a strong enough base just for it to be wiped in less than a day" and I totally get that. It made me think, why is that even the case? like, why do the attackers have the upper-hand? I could write paragraphs on that alone, but I'll try to keep it short and bullet point WHAT I believe to be the main issues with the state of Ark PvP, not including the game-breaking exploits. Stone and Metal structures are too weak. (Don't bother mentioning Tek, most tribes who play legit, don't have tek bases unless they bought from dupers or raided dupers) Explosives are too easy to craft/get a hold of (not counting the mass amounts of duped explosives) Turrets are pretty weak since everybody can soak them, even people on GIGAS can soak turrets, and turret ammo is too tedious to craft in the 10's of thousands just to keep the turrets active because of the amount of turrets you need just to keep your base defended. There's a lack of defensive structures, weapons and traps. DEFENSE SHOULD HAVE AN ADVANTAGE OVER OFFENSE! Things like cannons, ballistas, turret machine guns and rocket launcher gun are great but they're not exactly viable for defense, as most raids happen when the tribe is offline or just not at their base. (Don't mention Offline Raid Protection...) Plus, anybody sitting on one of those mounted weapons will be sniped off by an average player. We need more defensive structures that cannot simply be destroyed by a sniper (large bear trap) and Plant Species X is absolutely terrible. I get that it's just a CC to blind & slow attackers, but it can be countered so easily. We need things that will actually make raiders think twice about raiding a base which doesn't rely on heavy, ridiculous grinds (3432432 turrets) vs the small grind it takes to make explosives and tame/breed a tank, like a 2 day bred Turtle, etc. Stop with the Tek stuff! Tek is great, but no. I don't even need to explain why Tek isn't an option to most tribes on official PvP. We need defensive structures that are grind-able from resources on the map. Wooden spike walls and metal spike walls are a joke. Where's the electric fencing? (shock and K.O attackers) Land Mines? (Huge explosive power) IED's that can be planted (buried, like a Purlovia)? Flame Traps? (Traps that spit fire, like something from a tomb in Indiana Jones.) Razor wire? (slows and damages attackers, can't be shot) Turret variety? (different bullets, different targeting conditions, etc) Natural traps that aren't as lousy as Plant species X and Y? (Vines that grab, poison, break Armour, trap tames, idk) Traps that don't suck like Narcotic Traps, Trip Wire explosives? (since they have to connect and they're so blatant, and easily destroyed) Bear Traps are OK. C4 shouldn't be so easy to craft, and shouldn't really be allowed to be thrown and detonated from the seat of a dino (like a turtle) while turrets only target the turtle. Defense is too reliant on present players and dinos. Like I said earlier, most raids/wipes happen when the players are offline/not present, and I'm sorry but a base that took months to build should not be destroyed so easily within minutes/hours, regardless. I know A LOT of factors come into play here, like was the bases defense set up right, etc etc, but the fact that most bases are so easily breached, is alarming. I remember when we first started.... getting a grenade from a yellow drop felt like a big thing. Suppose you can tell me to play some custom server, but I'm on about official and official only (even the new, upcoming servers that supposedly won't have duping chaos.) You guys may think I'm just saying all of this to make the game more dumber and easier, but no, I'm trying to improve it before all hope is lost for the PvP aspect of it. Too much grind to defend, too easy to raid/wipe.

  24. Admin command problems

    I might sound stupid asking this but my admin commands aren't showing up when I pause the game. I've look through the options and couldn't find anything. I'm on Xbox btw. Any help?
  25. Hello again, hello to the developer and support team. Yesterday I recognized another Problem with my ARK Version on PC. I tried to start ARK again and a BattlEye window opens up. Well this far ARK did start up. Then I tried to login into my server an did get a driver crash. As I have shown in the other post I'm using the last driver Version and there is no Problem with my driver or graphic card. Well again... no real information about the real issue inside the crash log. The game works before perfect with the system configuration... So I did ask myself: Especially why did the files get blocked? OS? Firewall? Some changes at BattlEye with the execution permissions? I haven't logs @my Firewall! There hasn't been any log inside the windows manager console... I have the permissions to the folder and with this permission my executable will be executed as every last time! Sorry guys but there are still weird bugs inside... => After ARK has crashed I was still online in ARK, because BattlEye hasn't been shutted down. After I have closed BattlEye I was able to start ARK again and it works. A friend of mine has asked me how could I play 22 hours ARK or why I didn't logout? => Well it seems that BattlEye didn't shut down the connection was still up for 22 hours and occurs the crash and blocked himself, maybe. This issue occurs the first time at my machine, just want to led you know. Best regards, Kerbi PS: Why do I need to confirm my platform from my profile a third time? Hope this time PC has been saved PS 2: As addition Screenshot to my last post and because I did get it yesterday two times and didn't get it why I lose the connection, here a screenshot from the connection lose window. I don't get it why ARK lose the connection. No internet traffic, no other program in the background, only the lag from server... http://i66.tinypic.com/2ngtwti.png Well at least change the Option to a middle button with "OK" that's not so frustrating as to think I need to accept or chancel this issue Both will not work because chancel is not possible and I will not accept get thrown out like a Java exception Especial when you will get it out of the alpha status to a release status and in this point to a finished game ^^ (Sorry guys with all this reported bugs it don't feels finished. Fighting against Cheater and Dupper and future exploits will be your daily business but please fix this bugs from this an my previous post before you release this game as finish... )
