SERVER SETUP
#1
Hi Guys

i have this cracked version on 2 pcs, 1 for me and 1 for my 7yr old

i have tried everything i can think of to get a server setup for just our use, as i dont want to expose a 7yr old to the full online experiance just yet.
i still cannot see/join either pc when set up a dedicated/non dedicated session,
they do not show up on the unnofficial list or non dedicated list or even the LAN list

please help a upset little 7 year old that wants to play with his dad :-)


thanks  Big Grin

did you try make a bat file to run server via finding the files in the client folder ArkGameData/ShooterGame/Binaries/Win64/ will contain ShooterGameServer.exe you can make a .bat file and run a server from it http://ark-survival-evolved.wikia.com/wi...rver_Setup   ignore the part where you download the files you already have them so its cool#

if your unsure how to make a working bat file heres mine: https://mega.nz/#!LklHHKxL!GjtZJiOLl3wMX...iqAXNiC7VU

also do note a server can take 5-10 minutes to fully load and maybe if you still dont see it in lan try put int custom server section 127.0.0.1:27015   in launcher and select custom server on the pc you host the server on, and the harder thing that you now have to do is get your lan ip and of the pc of the server and then in your sons launcher in custom section put your lanip:27015 in custom server section, also you might have to go to start menu on your pc type in firewall and select allow a program through windows firewall then click on add a new program and navigate to ShooterGameServer.exe

Hi Kappa

thanks for yoour reply

followed all instructions to set the server, i tried with your batch file first as a test, looking at all progress it seems the server starts up no problems (cmd screen)
followed all instructions to open ports on my router.

started game normally, after 20 mins af refreshing servers on all sections (official,unofficial,LAN ect) still no sign of server

shootergameserver.exe allowed through firewall

what am i doing wrong ?

we can join other severs that show in the list and play together on them but we dont want to rely on the other server staying up , we want to be able to play together and keep all things we get/tame


any further help would be appreciated

I had to forward ports: 27015 and 27016 plus 7777 and it worked fine.

you shouldnt need to port forward if your accessing it by lan ip, might need upnp on though

my router firewall blocks ports unless forwarded even with upnp on, maybe he has the same problem. Also, if you are using raw sockets to connect directly with ASM, bypassing STEAM connection, you'll need to forward 7777 + 7778
