Ark: Survival Evolved [CRACKED] Download (Installation)

 

Server has updated to latest version!

 

Okay, so yes...this game is epic... for full details including videos and the alike checkout: http://store.steampo...com/app/346110/

 

Video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/embed/tJT52d2OPS4

Instructions:

 

1) You will need a Torrent client, the one I prefer to use is uTorrent. Checkout www.utorrent.com and download the free version.

2) You will then need to download the torrent here: https://thepiratebay...LumaEmu__Kortal

3) Once that has completed. Please follow the following instructions that are apart of that torrent that explain how to install the multiplayer aspect of the game. Yes the instructions are a bit "long" but..it will be worth it and is only a one time thing.

--- PLAY MULTI PLAYER ---

You will need to use a fake steam account with the game Spacewar in your library.

If you don't have a fake account, you will need to do theses extra steps:
a) create a new steam account at https://store.steampowered.com/join/
b) login to your fake account with the steam client
c) install spacewar game: press keys WIN + R and run steam://install/480. It will add spacewar game into your library.

1) if you have steam running, exit it
2) locate your steam folder (ex: C:Program Files (x86)Steam). rename the file appcachepackageinfo.vdf into anything else (ex: packageinfo.vdf.backup)
3) login to your fake account (a new packageinfo.vdf will be generated)
4) exit steam
5) Run AppID.Patch.exe. click the "Browse" button, select your newly created packageinfo.vdf into your steam folder. In AppId, put 346110 and click "Patch". Close AppID patcher
5a) if you have an error, try to add any other free game into your fake account
6) login to your fake steam account. you should now see ARK in your library. If you don't see it, you can still continue.
7) Run ARK_Launcher_MP.exe
8) In game main menu, click "JOIN ARK", select filter "Unofficial". You will see all available servers. Click "Join" to connect
9) when you have finished playing, Before using back your legit steam account, restore your previous saved packageinfo.vdf (packageinfo.vdf.backup) and rename it to packageinfo.vdf, or you can just delete the patched packageinfo.vdf

4) Now that we know the game is installed and mutiplayer works...we now need to get the game updated.. this is now the most easiest part...and at the time of writing this should never have any issues with future updates unless Steam changes something as we'll now be using "steamcmd" (which is a legitimate steam application) and we will be downloading all the updated content directly from Steam servers which is completely legit and free! (Weird right?). Download the 'steamcmd.zip' (the link is below below) extract this into the game folder itself. You should so by that I mean next to your  "ARK_Launcher-MP.exe" so you should have a folder 'steamcmd' listed next to all the other game folders like "Engine" and "ShooterGame". From there, you just need to run the "ark_update.bat" inside the 'steamcmd' folder and let it do all the work.

 

Here's a screenshot of what the game directory SHOULD look like in terms of the folders after you extracted:

 

dir.png

 

 

5) Once the above is complete you're now updated and can play on all the servers!

 

Click here to download the steamcmd application: http://www.team-neo....ds/steamcmd.zip

 

 

 

How to update:

 

  1. Download the steamcmd client here: http://www.team-neo....ds/steamcmd.zip
  2. Extract the contents of the above file into the games directory. (Next to your ARK_Launcher-MP.exe)
  3. You should see a bunch of folders, "Engine", "ShooterGame" and now "steamcmd". (Please see the image above to see what your directory should look like)
  4. Open the folder steamcmd and run the file "ark_update.bat". Once you start to see messages like "Already updated" you can now close the window (if it doesnt automatically close)
  5. Run the game and you'll now be updated!

 

 

Ark: Survival Evolved Server [CRACKED]

 

 

b_560_95_1.png

 

Current server feature(s):

 

  1. Taming speed boosted 20x
  2. Gathering Resources speed boosted 8x
  3. Experience Gained is boosted 3x
  4. Gamma settings Enabled/Allowed

 

Notes:

 

 

 

  • I know that it seems rather long winded getting the multiplayer part to work but you will only ever have to do that part once. And I'm 100% sure that its all actually needed...but it IS the guide that I followed and it worked great. Since then I have updated twice and not had any issues at all...with joining the servers.  :smile:
  •  
  • If you suddenly don't see the server in the server list, it is either rebooting OR is updated to a newer version than what you're using OR an older version if you updated before we could get to update our server.
  •  
  • New version released? Dont update until the server updates!

Yeah their website has like 3 'download' buttons whilst only one actually works and that is the 'get torrent' button in small text just below the description box alternatively just search for any ark evolved torrent and it should be fine to be honest.

I have no plans to reset the world yet as to be honest it hasn't been that long less than a month lol and putting that aside there isn't actually a need to reset either ?

Sure there are a lot of 'stuff' built around the world but anyone that's inactive you can go and demolish their walls and take their stuff which is only a good thing ! So no real need to reset... Plus I think it would piss a lot of people off that spent time making things even mine for example I've only just gotten a really secure (I hope) base lol... Also your question should be posted in the appropriate section on the forum as its not relating to this topic at all ;)

I assume pain's link will help you but to explain just google that file and download it manually placing it in the games directory will fix this kinda thing usually. If the file in question is part of a package of files then it would be better to install the package rather than each file one by one (this is probably pain's link that he posted to look there first) :)
