KetilI don't know how steamOS work, but if you have a menu system you can access and edit easily you can make a shortcut with "xdg-open steam://connect/193.111.186.8:27415" in exec, although it will ask you to type in the password in a steam popup.

If I remember correctly you should also be able to do this:
xdg-open steam://connect/193.111.186.8:27415/linuxftw

At least the steam browser documentation points that out it seem
Ooh, handy. I was never able to find the steam documentation The man page is limiting and steam support doesn't have any obvious path to it.

I have found a way to launch ark without autoupdating. xdg-open steam:// will auto update, unless ark is already running. To start ark without autoupdating you 1. Turn off automatic updates for ark, 2. Start steam, 3. Run $HOME/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/ARK/ShooterGame/Binaries/Linux/ShooterGame (or equivalent, if the steam library is in a different location). Then you can use xdg-open, or join from the ingame browser menu.

Ok, I am building a base near the red obelisk. Nice taming and XP stats... In 3 days I am at a level what used to take me 1.5 years. Of course with the latest respec I jumped from L72 to L91.
I think I saw one flying and saying something, but it took a while before I figured out how chat works.
As it is very hard to chat with a steam controller, I just stay at a distance :-).
Latest update seemed to have b0rked joining any server...
Well a that time my farm plots should have grown something.
At least I have a horde of lysies now, upping my dilo's.

We are going to spawn in an alpha broodmother lyrix the next few days, if you want to join then please let us know. We think doing caves are lots of fun.

Can we have the pet-finder mod?
I use it in single play and that works wonders...

Also, if you have excess rotten meat, please dump it in my feeding through, I will turn them into narcotics, and put half of them in another unlocked large box.
You can also get the narcoberries from the through, and create them yourself though. Please donate 1/2 of them in an open box :-).

Please note: I've just made sure the server is up to date with the latest version of ARK.

I've also removed the password, we want the server to be as easily reachable as possible and password protected servers cause issues with the Linux version (weirdly). With it often crashing when doing the password bit (myself and Sin both had this issue often).

I still hope the fix up some of the issues in the Linux client, but the server is staying for the next few months at least

BTW: please make a public backup if you ever decide to stop it. So I can at least take over the base I build 8-D.

Survivor Gelantious asks, “Any news related to Vulkan? Still having hopes you guys will move over to it and ditch the idea of dx12, since it would help Linux users as well and all windows users, not just the windows 10 players.”

Unreal 4’s own official Vulkan integration was only like half-functional when I last reviewed it a few months ago. I’ll take a look shortly to see if it’s farther along. Once Epic has got it going fully well (fully matching the functionality and pipeline of DX11 & Shader Model 5), I’d like to try to incorporate it into ARK.

ARK server down for a bit, doing an upgrade.

liamdawe commented on 29 August 2017 at 12:45 pm UTC

Server is coming back online, also enabled a daily update. Set it to 9AM, but unsure what their timezone is, think it's around 5PM UTC.

Edit: Server updates at 4PM UTC each day.
