Since Valguero was released, I cannot get Ark to connect to the Nitrado server. I receive the following messages from the client (see attached screenshots):
Attempting to join a game from invite or direct join...
Network Failure Message
Unable to query server info for invite
I have uninstalled and reinstalled Ark through the Steam client.
I have cycled the Nitrado server on-off-on-off
I have shutdown everything and restarted everything.
I have validated the Ark game files through the Steam client.
I have checked and unchecked the Valguero DLC in the DLC tab of the Steam client "game properties" box.
I have added the Nitrado IP address as a launch option for Ark, and I have removed it.
If I launch Ark from Steam *without* attempting to join Nitrado, and I thereafter click on "Join" in the main menu NO OFFICIAL SERVERS WILL APPEAR. I can find unofficial servers, but no official ones. The list is empty.
