New here. Rented a nitrado.net server this morning. Spent a little time trying to understand the capabilities of crossplay between xbox Ark and PC Ark (crossplay seems to work with Win 10 Store version & xbox). I think I may be barking up the wrong tree I'm afraid but I need help understanding this.
Can I rent a server on Nitrado (or ANYWHERE) so that I can host both a pc player (myself and possibly a couple friends) AND my other friend who plays on xBox??? We are able to join the same game in random official dedicated servers, but we want to enjoy the game world as our own (not deal with other people being able to join).
If one of us hosts locally either from xbox or pc we cannot play/progress when the other person isn't around to play. Also, that HUGE tethering issue is unbearable for me and a hard dealbreaker.
Do Nitrado.net servers only support the PC Steam and PC Epic Games Store versions of Ark? I am willing to buy the game on any platform on PC to be able to play with my friend on xBox if we can rent and password protect our own server.
Please help me understand if there is any way we can do this.
