Hey, I'm having a problem within my files. I have gone where your guide said to go and this is what I have as my options. Here is the URL of the location I went.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\Config

There are two folders under this.
CleanSourceConfigs
WindowsNoEditor

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\Config\CleanSourceConfigs
Image

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ARK\ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor
Image

Most of these files are just blank files... as in there is literally nothing stored into them. x-x Help?

Hi, i followed your tutorial through and through, very detailed however i am having an issue of, it shows on my lan page, but going to the site and looking doesn't show up with anything, me and a couple friends want to play alone but we can't do it since that is happening, i have noticed it's almost like it's not even using 7777 or 27015 for the ports as i can launch a server from a different game and it not error with socket in use. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Okay so: I followed this to the letter. Everything works fine, I use it for LAN games with my buddy; only issue is the admin password. I made sure it is typed correctly everywhere but when I go to log into the server and type the admin password I am greeted by "this password is incorrect."
Is this normal? I hope not :(

Scnede, may I ask what was in your \Shootergame\Saved\Config? Was it the file that eXi listed or what? I'm so confused. DX

Also post pictures of where you have your admin password document, there may have been something you missed.

Hi Miraak! I have attached images of the location of the files as well as the files themselves of what he said to do. My local server runs well and I can play on it, but admin password won't work for some odd reason. I followed eXi's tutorial (and have even bookmarked it so I can come back to be sure of any changes).

Note; I've also changed the password in Photoshop but I assure you they are spelt correctly everywhere. I've triple checked.

Okay, that is a little strange.. if there are any capitalizations in the password it may be the game being caps sensitive. I'm not exactly sure what or why it might be doing so; at least not without being able to test it myself. Right now all I can think to suggest is use a new password, make sure you're typing it in the exact way you have it in your documents, or make sure that you left no extra spaces behind the password itself.

And if I can ask a favor. If you're able, could you copy and paste the contents of your Windows Server file into a RAR file? For whatever reason that mine is missing, I think all I'd need was the exact files from someone else.

I will change the password to only lower case letters and test that out, hopefully it works!
And I have attached the .ZIP folder.

Hopefully it will indeed, either way tell us what happens.
Also thank you. ^^
