    Bonjour Nyynax!


    First of all, I don't want to promote anything or anyone here.

    But I used the tutorials of Jay Cartere (Or something like that) to setup my Server for my Youtube Channel members.


    That's the link to the playlist Jay has on YT and it helps you understand the settings etc. and where to change them! ;)
    Some things have changed a little bit in the Nitrado setting and Dashboard, but it's still very easy to find and manage! ;)

    Good luck and happy taming! :)

    Good Question..

    I don't really have an All tome favorite, I am really into RAFT, and yesterday I rented my own Nitrado ARK Server and played ARK for the very first time! Man What an amazing game! :D Sooo much fun! :D

    I also enjoy laid back games like Stardew Valley and GraveYard Keeper alot! :D

    The Far Cry Series are games that keep drawing me back though I guess those could be considered All time favorites after all! :P

    Hey Guys,

    I was looking for a solution for my CrossPlatform Server (Steam + Epic) where people had trouble to connect or couldn't find the Server in the Server list.


    I found one and since it's a more common problem than we all like to admit I thought I'd put a little tut down here!


    If you're playing ARK with an Epic Games copy and you have you're Server set up as CrossPlatform (Steam + Epic) you can either try to find your server name in the list which for me hasn't worked for me in the past days..

    If that's your case too you're not as lucky as the Steam users who can add a Favorite Server to Steam so here's a work around:


    If you want to connect to your server from your Epic Games version of ARK, let the players load into a SinglePlayer game first (Character Creation is not important, cause we won't use that one, so skip it).

    Than once loaded in open the console (default key is Tab) and type the following:


    open IP:PORT


    If you use a Password on your server do this:


    open IP:PORT Password


    So for example if your IP is 238.10.6.2 your connection port is 3000 and your password is "NitradoRulez" it would look like this:


    open 238.10.6.2:3000 NitradoRulez

    or

    open 238.10.6.2:3000 when not using a password.


    Then press Enter and it will start to load you into the server if the IP, Port and Password has been correct!


    NOTE: The Port number used here is the connection Port NOT the Query Port Number! ;)


    I hope this helped you out,

    If so go to my Youtube Channel and Sub! :)

    I have been struggling with this as well BUT I come baring gifts! :P

    If your on Epic and you have you Server set up as CrossPlatform (Steam + Epic) you can either try to find your server name in the list which for me hasn't worked in the past days..

    If you want to connect to your server from Epic let the players load into SinglePlayer first (Character Creation is not important so let them skip it), than once they're loaded in let them open the console (default is Tab) and type the following:

    Code
    1. open IP:PORT

    If you use a Password on your server do this:

    Code
    1. open IP:PORT Password

    So for example if your IP is 238.10.6.2 your connection port is 3000 and your password is "NitradoRulez" it would look like this:


    Code
    1. open 238.10.6.2:3000 NitradoRulez


    Then press Enter and it will start to load if the IP, Port and Password has been correct! ;)

    @Moderators or DOAGEN Share this somewhere please or add it to the wiki cause I spend over half an hour searching for this while Streaming the game on Youtube.. :P
    Easy info should be shared! :)
