  1. I run a group for Ark players on Nintendo Switch and I hate to say it but we are not satisfied with the graphics. We love Ark but the graphics are just not meeting our expectations. Quite a few have mentioned that they are returning the game. Will there be patches/updates soon to come to improve this issue? We all want Ark to work great on Nintendo Switch. The following are problems noted from players in my group: - Very, very low resolution graphics in handheld mode. The visuals are so poor that I cant play for a few minutes without developing a headache. - Rendering distances are very poor in handheld mode; many objects don’t fully render until you’re right next to them. - The entire world seems to need to re-render every time you open and close the in-game menu. - When killed by a dinosaur in handheld mode, the HD rumble seems to vibrate to its absolute maximum, so much so that it feels like it’s going to damage my console if it keeps happening. - It often takes multiple attempts to join an official server, even when said server isn’t anywhere near to being full. - Equus go through the mesh and disappear when pooping. Textures also flicker on them when they are rendered again after coming back in range. - Some single player settings are not saved the next time the game is loaded. - The ground keeps disappearing.. it's crazy and terrifying when you're getting off a mount and don't know if you're going to fall to your death or not. - Brightness/gamma needs work or maybe contrast. With gamma all the way up its still nearly impossible to see anything at dark.
  2. Starting a friendly switch server! My son's getting to the point where he wants to start playing pvp. He hasn't had the best of luck with people being friendly. So he's looking for some friendly players looking to hop on his non dedicated switch server.. Hes willing to help new comers with what they might need as long as there willing to play nice:) he's always on eventually, look for the Ethan server on switch its only ever me and him on so there's not many people ever.. I told him if people aren't nice to him don't be nice to them. Thanks ahead of time..
  3. Is there crossplay / crossplatform in ark between PS4 and switch So I did some research, and found both that the Nintendo Switch is able to perform crossplay on Ark with PS4 and some websites said it wasn't. Can someone pls confirm with me whether or not it's possible because my brother wants to get ark on his switch but won't get it if he can't play with me on my PS4.
  4. Update For Switch? Ark, I love your game. I have loved it since it came out a few years back. Your game has been a big part of my gaming hours and I would love for you guys to update the switch version. I know that it's not the best, but I know you guys are very smart and can make it into something people would love to buy. The switch is one of the newest consoles with a lot of attention that you guys could potentially have. I know that the switch version hasn't gotten a lot of positive attention, but if you work with the people you guys could have a lot of attention and profit from it. I did have this game on my laptop which has since broken and the switch is the only other console I have. I have a phone, but the mobile version doesn't run too smoothly on it. I'm asking as a customer to please at least try to update this game and make it to where people love it, because I know you guys definitely can!
  5. I GOT SCREWED!! So I was interduced to ark threw my son watching YouTube videos. Always finding myself saying "what the hell game is this again?" so I thought itd be a good idea to get it for my 8yr old. So after I jumped on this thing called ark, I instantaneously realized "what the hell kinda game is this". So after dying 400x and taking days to even know what the hell was going on let alone save. I started the survival. Once I was established my boy picked right up on it too. It's buggy as hell, iv errored out a million times, I know I got shafted on the switch version. But with that said it was enough to hook me...bad. My son now has it for his switch and between mine and his we have over 250hrs in and that's mainly sp or just us two. SO.. I get absolutely no DLC and by the sounds of it I won't get genisis either! I don't have the money to buy a computer or Xbox or I would, just for ark maps. Even on the switch port I managed to get hooked and would easily drop more money into it, even with all the bugs and absolutely no updates I want more.. I just don't understand why they neglect the switch port(well I do cause its the switch port) when theres obviously people ready to help the ark name in the switch world. Anyone else stuck with the switch version but still loves the hell outa it?. I'm sure there's others bitching too, but Its been bugging me and had to get it out.. poop it wasn't even easy to sign up for an account on this.. No switch to pick. I had to write my first dlc? Iv haven't got to play one but that wasn't a valid answer.. But whatever. #THINKOFTHESWITCH!
  6. Singleplayer Advanced Settings Bug So when you try to play Singleplayer in Ark Survival Evolved for Nintendo Switch the Advanced Settings section before you begin Singleplayer do not save when adjusted. For example if i wanted to halve the duration for baby dinosaurs to grow. Exiting closing the application resets advanced settings back to default. This would be highly appreciated and would mean so much if someone were to make this fix. Thank you!
  7. [SWITCH] Engrams disappearing upon start. I was having a great time playing Ark on switch, until I entered my game and engrams were gone. I had to relearn them and its so annoying. Happened 3 times since I've had the game (I got it 2 days ago). Is there a fix or can you fix it?
  8. Hi wildcard It would be amazing if after 5 months we could get some patches for the switch. Ofcourse the DLC's would even be better but im already happy with general game improvement kind regards
  9. Ark Switch update Hello Team 1.- I want to know if there is coming any update for Nintendo switch? 2.- Why remove the x2 in Taming, farming during weekends? 3.- When are you going to include the x2 of breeding? Thank you for your support.
  10. Is there anyone playing multiplayer on The Nintendo Switch? I’m thinking about getting Ark On my Switch but , I’m worried about no one being on to play with. If any of you guys have the game on switch, tell how many people plays.
  11. Really WildCard? R e a l l y? Apparently cheating is also a PC privilege that Switch players only get a fraction of. The game is so freaking buggy that I have to cheat certain items in because the engrams were erased. To even get good things, I gotta cheat. They cheated me, I’ll cheat em right back. Oh! But wait! Certain codes don’t work! Once again they pulled the wool over my eyes and cheated me again. Does anyone have proper codes to cheat in tamed dinosaurs, flexible electrical cords, and kibble (it doesn’t cook in my game)? It doesn’t work for me and y’all know tech support won’t help. (Don’t move this to big reports cause I’m still waiting for the last three reports to be answered.)
  12. Is Fear Evolved Event coming on Switch? I've played Ark on the Switch Version for 5 months now so this is the first time that I see this event and I think it's really cool. I know that WildCard isn't interested in this platform anymore but when they announced the event they said that it is coming on all platform without specify which. Has anyone more infos?
  13. if you go in Creative mode (GCM) using console commands and type "gfi Sniper 1 1 0" you will be given the TekGram for a Tek Railgun. i play on the switch with 0 DLCs and this railgun is only on Aberration. it is currently unusable even with "learnengrams" on. try this for yourselves and see what i mean. this 100% hints to a new boss and/or new Tekgrams. Have a nice day and thanks for reading also
  14. I waited long time for ARK on the Nintendo Switch, since it release i love it. Due lack of further DLC‘s (Scorched Earth Datas are includet in Swich version, except Models and map) and updates i bought the PCVersion on Steam this week. For me its not the same like on Switch . I still hope WC see us one day as normal ARK Players, thath worth further Updates. And please add private servers and/or noTaming would be nice.
  15. So when will this be coming on to nintendo switch? I heard October 2019, but idk if thats true. Any info on that, and other DLC would be greatly appreciated.
  16. Release dlc on switch and patch it. Everyone, or at least lots of people, are getting ark on switch. If you, wildcard, ported it onto switch, you should patch it and release the dlc for it or as a bundle with the base game.
  17. Hi guys, long Story short we all know theres not a tsunami of Information about Ark on Nintendo Switch. But i reached out to Abstraction Games, and heres what they said. At least they answered and see we are out there. But as it always was: Wildcard is asleep. Heres the Quote: “Hi Thorsten, Thanks for reaching out to us! We are working on all console versions, including ARK Switch. We do not however have any control over when new patches will be released as Studio Wildcard controls that process 100% and sends instructions our way as they see fit. Basically, we’re in the same boat as the community as far as information is concerned. That said, our idea is to vastly improve the Switch version over time. We just don’t know when we are able to put the bulk of our resources on either platform. I guess this is still just a case of waiting for Wildcard to broadcast their plans or release date commitment. DLC was planned for Switch, but honestly I don’t know where that sits right now. I’ve been trying to get a hold of Wildcard management for weeks but there has been radio silence for a while. I’m sure at some point they’ll be in touch again after a period of being overwhelmed on their end is my best guess. Cheers, Ralph Abstraction“ Bottom Line is that Wildcard does not even respond to a freaking developer that they paid for porting their game. Thats probably the most sad company I have ever seen. But there is hope because the Support is not canceled. Just wanted to share this since no one has any word on the Switch Version.
  18. Will the Nintendo Switch console be able to play with PC,Xbox and Playstation etc...?

    PIXARK PS4?

    PIXARK PS4? so guys i came across a twitter comment on @pixark twitter and it was about that they made a mistake and put the game on the store for one day and only a small amount of people own this game on ps4 so i would like to now who has it and what is your experience with the ps4 version?
  20. ...at least we don’t have to deal with messes like the vault drop “fix” and tons of people losing their characters after the rollback. Maybe being ignored is a blessing.
  21. Dear Team Why did anyone here purchase ark switch? cause we love ark and we love to play it on the and tv, yes myself I have a ps4 pro which does a amazing job at ark but the switch version just has a magic that you guys can fix I don't know what your teams issue is with funding the fix for switch did you not forget that we paid for the game ? Please look into this and fix the game the switch version deserves fixes
  22. I played ark on many platforms. PC, xbox, mobile and now on nintendo. I will only talk about the last mentioned, just say that they are all a disaster. But the version of nintendo? 4 months later and want to make us lose all the time invested? They know how the game is, if we move from server to server, we will have no place to build. I have a base with more than 150 defenses (distributed) many hangars, many dinosaurs, and they want me to take everything to a server where I do not know their population and they kill me everything? You are thieves! We have paid more than in the other versions and we are ignored, and not only that, now they want to take us away. It should be reported that in just 4 months they can do this to us. Nintendo should not allow this.
  23. The Save Our Eyes Suggestion I am going to keep it simple and easy to understand. First off this suggestion is in regards to Ark on PS4, although it could extend to other console platforms. My knowledge and experience only pertains to the ps4. The Issue? The ridiculous bloom and light intensity. Specifically on Aberration where navigating the Element Zone is unbearable. There are days where my eyes are literally suffering physical symptoms such as popped blood vessels and obvious irritation due to this games bloom settings. Not to mention the fact that the ability to change this setting is a feature that has been lacking on PS4. Terminology: What is bloom for those of you who do not know? It is the extreme glowing effect seen when you look at bright lights in Ark survival evolved. It renders practically all of your screen unable to be seen as if a bright light is in your eyes. A real life example of this would be trying to look directly at the sun(which might I add is not a healthy thing to do for fun). History: The start of the problem I hope I am not the only one who remembers the early days of Ark ps4. Where there was a screen tear and blinding light so bright, and so horrifying, that everyone playing Ark survival evolved on ps4 would have a popped blood vessel in the same eye. It was almost like a badge of honor for a true survivor. The Working Solution that was found There was a solution found by players on console where you could type in commands in single player utilizing admin commands, and once successfully done you would be able to log back into any server and the settings would be maintained. This came at the inconvenience of having to re-enter the commands every time you closed the application and returned for another play session. Lets just say this solution gets a 0/10 on aberration where blue screens are a common occurrence. How did we get where we are now? At some point it was confirmed that the ability to use those commands had been altered, thus the previous solution was made ineffective at solving the problem. Now we are currently trudging through extremely saturated glow effects, blinding light shafts, and other effects that I may not even know of due to my lack of expertise in how these game effects are taking place. Current Solution? As far as I am aware, there is no slider for these effects, and there is no working solution to the problem from the player's perspective. However, there are a few things worth mentioning here: Gamma Correction Many of you may have thought changing your gamma would suffice. Unfortunately all this does is reduce the brightness of the glow and lights. This is helpful at making the experience of Ark easier on your eyes and comes with it the benefits of reducing eye irritation. Unfortunately it also makes it even harder to see where you are going by reducing the amount of "light" entering your characters "eyes" , so to speak, as well as doing nothing to change the area in your vision being obstructed by glow or light shaft mechanics. .ini settings There is a way to add .ini settings into a server and disable or reduce the quality of these settings. However, through personal experience with this issue I have found it unreliable at best. Typically this requires server restarts while characters are on the server being restarted. Sometimes the changes will take effect and the game will be completely playable. Other times nothing changes. The times when the changes occur may not even be affected by changing the .ini settings and restarted but some other mystery altogether. This solution seems fine until you consider that only a server admin could implement such a thing. A player would not have such a solution to utilize without hosting their own server or having a server admin figure out how to introduce .ini settings. THE SUGGESTION? @StudioWildcardPlease either disable the bloom quality and light shafts across the entire ps4 platform or finally make the addition of a player control option to permanently change these features. This problem is a matter of both lower quality gaming experience as well as real world health implications. Obviously there are many other solutions to reach the desired outcome of being able to see in the direction of light objects without causing physical harm to our eyes or being unable to navigate within the game. As far as utilizing glow in pvp and pve balance, which is the only argument I can see as to why the feature shouldn't be disabled or controlled by individuals, as cool as using the sun at your back during a huge battle charge sounds, I think there should come a point when the realism within the game has gone too far. Bloom and light intensity has gone too far. Special Thanks! Thanks go out to all the people out there who helped spread information on this subject! All information gathered for this suggestion was found on various Forum searches and YouTube Videos on the subject, or otherwise through personal experience playing Ark Survival Evolved since December 2016. One Final Note While the major issue that destroys our gaming experience is the blinding lights from the glow effect and the light shafts, another major concern of mine and many others is just simple ability to alter graphic settings. These, as well as many others, are some of the major graphic settings that could easily reduce massive lag spikes, blue screens, and various other issues that plague survivors on the console Arks: -Ground clutter quality -Shadow Quality -Reflection Quality -texture quality -view distance quality -Effects Quality AND MANY MORE!
  24. To Studio WildCard, quit ignoring the Nintendo switch port and fan base. This is ridiculous for over 5 months of silence about anything of the maps. I demand for you to speak about the Switch port and I understand that you are a busy company but releasing a unfinished product is just scummy and not saying anything of new updates too. I put it over 700 hours on the Switch port of Ark and this is getting ridiculous of how there is been silence for months about the matter of maps or new patches. I know that you possibly are working on the maps since all of the dinos from the DLCs are in the games files since you can spawn a Griffin in game. If you ever wanted to do this yourself, have admin commands on in single player or non dedicated and type in the code gmsummon “Griffin_Character_BP_C” (You put here what level you want it to be) and it spawns in. It is a fully function Griffin also. WildCard, everyone in the Switch community is demanding a response back to your fans of any new updates about this switch port. You as a company not even giving updates and leaving this like if it never became a port is extremely disrespectful to the Switch community. This is. And you promising maps and not even releasing them for over five months now is ridiculous. You need to get your act together WildCard. Stop spending your time on the other consoles and fix the biggest issue you have right now and that is the Switch port. Coming from a PC player and a Console player, I honestly played the Switch version of Ark more than the PC version and this is a great idea for Ark on this platform but it is an unfinished product that you haven’t even addressed to fixing. If you ever expect your fans to buy your games or DLCs in the future, it’s best to fix this port because this port would be almost as popular as the PC port if it had its maps and the glitches and optimization issues fixed. We all want the maps already and it doesn’t take this long to optimize a few maps. Any one reading this post, please share it and repost and demand that Wildcard will respond and fix this switch port. If they don’t do it, this will show even more of a scummy company they can get if they don’t fix this.
  25. PLS ARK STAFF I only have a switch to play ark on, and I want to play some scorched earth but I cant pls tell me when its coming
