  • Hello,

    this is a duplicate topic.

    If interested how updates happen @ Nitrado please visit the following: When will my ARK server update when ARK has an update? [ALL platforms]

    Thank you.

    I'd suggest you communicate that an update is pending in the server dashboard. That would avoid "duplicate topics." Threads and support requests regarding update status of the server are caused by poor communication. Let us know an update is inbound in the control panel and you won't have to deal with people wonder what is going on.


    Just a suggestion.

  • Updates are controlled by the Devs of the game.

    On the official Wiki site it does list platforms and what versions. You can even subscribe to the forums to alert you when an update is release. Also WC has an official discord.

    Those folks are the ones that alert when updates are released. The hardware is hosted by Nitrado, not the game. That Nitrado link also provides greater detail on how they work.

    Also Nitrado has made in possible in the webui to reboot the server after it receives the update. Just mentioning some other tools available.

    :)

    And can you tell me who is responsible for taking the updates from the dev and installing them on Nitrado servers?


    I am pretty sure that's not me, and that's not developers.

  • So a few days later, we're here and the developers have pushed another update. On the PS4 the client is updated before the server update is available, and I've got players wonder where the server is.


    Now I understand *completely* that Nitrado has nothing to do with how or when Nitrado can deploy the updates to the server. My problem is I have to keep restarting the server, over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and refreshing on PS4 client to see if the update was made.


    This seems... inefficient? Unproductive?


    What would be lovely is something that shows when a server update is ready to be installed. Then I have something to watch out for, instead of endlessly polling and rebooting.


    Again, I completely understand that this less than ideal update pipeline is a product of the choices of the developer. What I'd love to see is some tooling around that crappy set of choices made by Wild Card to make all our lives easier. I know you don't want a bunch of dopey "Where's my update?" support tickets, and I don't want a bunch of players on my server doing the same thing to me. The issue is: information. We don't know if there's a server update available to install.


    And, because the developer have a less-than-ideal update pipeline, perhaps tooling isn't an option and you're just as frustrated with the situation as I am. But, I thought I'd ask.
