ARK Update, now unable query server to join

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • Hello,

    Here is additional information about how releases are handled at Nitrado. If you wish to discuss further, feel free to contact Nitrado Support directly.

    If they are minor updates, the client and server are not dependent on both to be the latest. The dont always match. Also Nitrado updates faster updates needed for like exploits and security. If it is a minor one, it will take longer.

    When will my ARK server update when ARK has an update? [ALL platforms]

    Also if you visit the Dev site they have released this-

    We will be disabling transfers momentarily in order to prep for a short rollback to reinstate snails.

    also- Deployment and rollback happening now. Thanks for hanging in there

    While that affects official, it also affects the version being released to update. So the servers will update once the dust settles.

    PC Client update alone was 66G.

  • And just noticed when looking at servers being listed by steam, a message is on the top "Deploying 338.23" so that process is not even complete. We have to wait for that as well.

    Awesome! Thank you for the response. I was not sure how big the actual update was since it started while I was AFK and came back to see it installing. Usually the updates go right through, so this one must have been bigger then what I had read.
