Ark Patch Notes

v729.9, ETA: Dec 17:

(this will be a small executable update :wink: )

  • Fixed an issue where many Player-Hosted sessions were not joinable!

  • “Full” Servers are now listed! Also increased server list size to 250 so that ALL Official Servers are listed (100-server search limit causing some servers to not appear)

  • Server Bookmarks now save!

  • Server Bookmarks are automatically added for any servers that you join (to help you find your server if you didn’t remember the name :wink:

  • Session List Ping should work properly now (and the servers are now default ordered by Ping)

  • LB+Start now opens Tribe Chat (text chat)

  • Plugging in a controller no longer signs you out of your gameplay

  • Hidden Engrams are no longer displayed on client (Primitive servers etc)

  • Server Broadcast messages now respect player communication privilege

  • Reloading ( X ) with the hand-held Map out now opens the UI to Apply/Remove Map Pins

  • Player Actions Wheel now only shows the Poop option if you can Poop (tee hee hee).

  • You can now Press Start in the Inventory of an activateable structure to toggle its active state (campfire etc)

  • Improved Structure destruction vfx

  • Fixed issue where you couldn’t interact with some nearby Dinos / Access Inventories in Singleplayer / when Hosting

  • Fixed a singleplayer crash that could occur randomly when moving through the world

  • Doubled the Slider Ranges on the ‘Host Game’ UI (in a future patch will uncap it with editboxes ala PC)


They hope for it to hit this weekend or Monday.

So this isn’t out yet?

No. None of us playing last night have been able to connect after the crash but the server is currently full so I have no idea what’s going on. Going to try a fresh install. See if that helps.

It looks like the patch is now live.

Just downloaded it.

The server browser is also saying Maintenance update a 3:15 EST to update to v729.9

On right now servers are all full for PvP and says “70/70” which I thought they were increasing server size. Dedicated player servers go up to 50.

EDIT: tried joining some player servers still same issues. Address not found. So yeah as far as trying to play together currently we are still out of luck.
