  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Attention for the switch

    I've created a suggestion in the new forum to hopefully draw some attention to switch support kind regards

    Nintendo Switch support

    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
  5. 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

    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

    ARK for Switch is great

    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.
  8. Hi, can someone say me the online player number in official European servers for Nintendo switch? Because i think to get one and i play this game on my xbox mostly in official servers.
  9. 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.

    Ark-Nintendo Switch

    Hello, This is a question for the Dev’s. I own Ark and season pass on all platforms and now I bought it on the switch so I can play in my down time at work. My question is, will there be any update to the graphics quality/game performance for the Nintendo Switch version, and will any of the DLC be coming to this system. I love ark and realize that even on other play forms it had a rough start and they still have bugs, but they have come a long way, will this be the same for the Switch? I feel it has the possibility to surpass other versions just due to portability aspect but some improvements to the quality definitely need to be made before it gets there. I’ve tried searching for the answer online but I have yet to see a response from any Devlopers which I find unusual as I’ve seen responses on other platforms, so I’m asking please give us some form of information if we all bought the game and waisted $50+ on it at least have the courtesy of letting us know. Thanks, Dan
  11. Will the Nintendo Switch console be able to play with PC,Xbox and Playstation etc...?
  12. i don't think any of the devs read these threads but on the off chance they do i'm gonna make a list of bugs/problems with the nintendo switch version i've encountered in a place they can see it. some of these have already been mentioned but have seen no replies to their posts so if you're reading this you're not alone, the game is just really buggy and the devs don't seem to care as long as they make money. i'll be underlining the bugs for tl;dr readers as well as using colored text for people with reading/comprehension difficulty like myself. so the first and most annoying one that a lot of people seem to have is the matter of engrams being unlearned or disappearing upon reentering the game, and have to be relearned with points that were taken the first (and second, third, fourth etc) time you learned them. no idea why it doesn't reset the points along with the engrams so we can just relearn them for free, or why only some engrams seem to stay learned, but it is incredibly frustrating to learn one that costs 30+ points and have the game crash before you can craft it, or needing it again and it not being available due to the weird selective erasure. another issue related to crashing is having advanced settings reset themselves whenever you close the software (or of course if it crashes), and again only some of the settings are reset: poop/egg/mating/crop intervals, and dino/player stat multipliers. i assume this selective reset was somewhat intentional but it would be extremely helpful to be able to permanently save settings instead of having to slide every bar into place upon restarting the game. also, i should point out manually exiting the game via the + button and choosing main menu keeps these settings saved, and it is only when closing the software that they revert to their original settings. things like day/night duration, some tickable boxes, and everything on the general settings menu stays the way you set it even after a crash. i can't see a reason why they can't all retain their adjusted settings if we know it's possible to do so. moving on to the game itself, the graphics are obviously very poor. personally i'm just glad to be able to play the game since i don't own an xbox/ps4/gaming computer, but i know the low quality of the forests and plants were a huge complaint among other players. my only issue is that due to the poor loading of these graphics you are basically unable to chase down dinos because the frame rate drops so low that it crashes the game 80% of the time if you run in an area like the redwoods. i have lost a few dinos because of this and knowing i have to maintain a steady jog and hope my target gets stopped by a rock or tree is pretty frustrating. and speaking of losing dinos, i've had the issue of dinos loading before structures when starting the game, so if you've trapped some in a pen, they have a chance to escape when you start the game because the walls won't load in time to keep them inside. even when the game has been on for a while the dino heads can clip through walls (yes, even walls their species is unable to damage) and bite things outside the pen, such as other dinos who then attack back and can kill the ones you have inside the pen. another major bug i've seen people have when trying to tame troodons is that unconscious dinos can attack in their sleep! if you know about troodons you know they are a pain to tame, and this bug makes it nearly impossible to use the gimmick needed to tame them. the only solution i've found for this is that's all i can think for now, though i'm sure i will remember more and update the thread. before i go, i want to say something to everyone struggling with crashes in the nintendo switch version of ark survival evolved: in advanced settings under join/host local, turn on enable admin logging (a checkbox) and once the game loads, press + to get to the pause menu, then press L R X Y at the same time to bring up the command box and type in saveworld and then click admin command. it might take a few seconds but you should see the blue saving... text at the bottom right corner of the screen. this will force save your game (without having to exit/reload) every time you hit the admin command button on the pause menu, otherwise you have no control over when the game saves and could lose your progress to a sudden crash. learning this command saved my life, and i hope it helps others who have lost their hard work be able to prevent it in the future. unfortunately it occasionally crashes the game when you try to save via this method, but those are times when it was almost certainly close to crashing on its own anyway. if you are really desperate to save and don't want to risk crashing, just save by "exit to main menu" as i have not yet experienced a crash when saving this way.

  14. Hey guys, Played hundreds if not thousands of hrs on PS4, Made the jump to play ark on switch but cant seem to find which button cycles snap points for structures when placing. on PS4 usually the Map or R1 button cycled snap points when there were multiple but cant find what this is on switch. Anyone else had any luck in this space?? thanks!

    Engram Bugs

    When I logged out of single player all of my engrams disappeared and my character only learned the base skills. I also had 0 points. I tried logging out several times and my points never came back. So now I am level 17 and cannot learn any skills. This bug is game breaking and makes it unplayable.

    Handheld mode is utterly dreadful.

    I am absolutely stunned that Wildcard are charging £45 for a game which, in handheld mode (which many of us are purchasing this for) is utterly unplayable. Take a look at my screenshot and see for yourself. Everything is incredibly blurred, and most objects don’t render unless you’re right next to them. The visuals are so poor that I actually developed a massive headache after only 30 mins of handheld play, and 5 hours later my headache has only just passed. It’s like being unable to focus your eyes for half an hour, so you can imagine how that feels. And this is AFTER a day one patch! Dont buy this game guys. The mobile version offers far superior graphics and it’s free. The game should have never been released in this state. It looks nothing like the trailers, or the demo earlier in the year. What a mess.

    US switch servers?

    Why are there no us servers? I'm not going to play on 170 ping eu or oc servers. Downloaded the patch but clearly needs the frame rate upped, running at like 20 fps or lower on dock mode.

    Nintendo switch?

    Hey guys I play on mobile and my friend has a nintendo switch and he was planning on buying ARK. I was just wondering if we would be able to play together. I mean its classified as "ARK MOBILE" right? I mean a switch is mobile. Thanks, -Cap
