Nitrado ALWAYS late with updates....

Any idea when you will let us update Ark to 255.5???????

The update is out since March 10th, restarted several times and the server is still in 255.4.

You always leave us behind, All other game server hosts already updated in the SAME DAY the patch was out!!!!!!!!!!!

Usually it is within a couple of hours. We do this to ensure that the patch is stable.

If for some reason your server doesn't update, contact support, who will sort it for you.

I don't know if you even bothered to read my email but we are not talking about a couple of hours, the patch to 255.5 was not available 11 days after the release. And I restarted the server multiple times.

The same thing happens with ALL patches.

We have been waiting WAY over "a couple hours" for the latest patch..... so..... Its very clear that "Some" times Nitrado updates within a few hours... And Other times its a ridiculous amount of time- such as posted above. We are now waiting for 255.7 WHICH is suppose to help FIX some of the issues brought on by patch 255... A very NEEDED patch, and..... ............ still waiting...

Indeed. 255.7 should fix the vanishing dinos and nothing yet. Already restarted today and no update!

Yay, we finally updated to 255.7! and only a couple of hours (4 days) after the release. But I guess missing dinos is not a big issue...

I am very satisfied that the patches are not applied the same day. I appreciate a host that watches to see how the patch goes. And even more so with .7 since it is not Retro.

.7 hasn't fully fixed the vanishing Dino's anyways. People are still loosing them. I do know in the last 6 months, many things have improved the chances of a Dino going poof. Personally, I have not lost a Dino in over 4 weeks and we have like a crapload tamed.

On a side note, not sure if this will work for all, but several of us game admins have been doing this to our servers in an event a dino goes poof:
We shut down the server, and restore from the last backup before the filesize had changed. We have been able to restore 100% of any missing Dino this way. Unfortunately this will not work with a server that has players 24x7.
We've finally told folks basically in an event a Dino is reported poof, the server maintenance is between this time of xx to xx. Nothing will be saved during that time. Worked for multiple servers for us.

The decision to update is the server's admin to make, not the hosting company. I choose if I will take the chances with an update or nothing. Whenever there is a delay on Nitrado's side, players leave the server an move to an up to date.

It's 21:45 EDT now on March 31st. Officials already update and my other server at HH too. Nothing here and ppl want the new content.

(I am assuming you meant to say, that should be up to the server admin).

My response is a technical answer.
Depends on which hosting company you are with.
Cause I have no way of updating mine. I reboot and no change, so I created a support ticket recently. Host said they apply when they are ready and appears stable.


My ticket "


By: Nitrado Support, 03/17/17, 08:14 am

Hello xxx,

Thank you for your support request.

You're not doing anything wrong, we haven't pushed that update out. It was
extremely tiny and fixed 2 things, so rather than restart (all) servers to
apply a tiny update and boot everyone off, we typically wait until server
population drops drastically, or a more important update is released.

Your server would automatically restart and have the update applied when we do
push out the next update."


although I admit, I'd love to play this massive update. But I support and agree with the process here. I rather be safe than sorry.

Well, that's really sad. officials are on 256.11 already and I just transferred the savegame from here to Host Havoc (256.11 over there too). I'm not in the mood to lose players and ppl want to play the new content.

As I said, it's my decision to make, not Nitrado's.

The problem with waiting is that Steam forces ARK to update, which means you can't play on the server you pay for.

I now have the 256 patch installed. I can't go back to an older version, and I couldn't stop the download and play anyway. So now I'm stuck with the new version but can't login to my server, and that's why we should be able to force update ourselves.

Yeah, would like to try it out also, but our 3 servers are still on 255.7; even restarted 1 hoping it would update. I think I am going to set up our 4th somewhere else, since it is not going to be linked to the other 3 by Cross Ark.

first, our servers updated by nitrado and said they were still at 255.7- NOW they are saying theyre at 256.11 - Where is 256.2? werent we waitng all this time for 265.2? or is there no .2 - is it .11 that is the latest mini patch?

Nitrado is good for servers with low population, no mods and that wipe every other week. Our server runs just fine with our mods mon-fri (as long as more than 20 ppl do not join- once we have 21 ppl + server does not run well at all!) and never works well sat-sun. BUT somehow works just fine mon-fri.... hmmm... these must be some magical mods! But it "must" be the mods and the fact we only wipe every couple months not a couple times every month (as Nitrado "support" has told us)

Woohoo, in this case they jumped from 256 to 256.1. I am glad too...

256.1

Released - March 31, 2017


  • Fixed a common server crash associated with harvesting. Servers should urgently upgrade to this version to avoid crashes! <----"Oh Boy! not good." -doa
  • Fixed not being able to craft Tributes, and not being able to "Transfer All" from Supply Crates.
@ those asking the versions. We were all waiting for 256.

Because there was an issue already it went to 256.1 per WC. But we may see it as 256.11 somewhere. WC is getting better at the versioning. I doubt in the future will go from 256.1 and create a 256.11. Now that would be mean. They would at least create number 256.2 first we hope. Sometimes they get crazy and jump like 256.1 to 256.88. I stare too much at their wiki. lol

pfft- after typing this post, WC (not the wiki, but the ARK Network says 256.12)

I too want to know when the servers are getting the update. Nitrado have already updated the official servers. I have opened a support ticket and all I get is "your server is already up to date and will be updated when the next one is released" 256.4 has been released but my server is still on 256.32 !!! If they can't do it on release in a timely manner I may have to cancel and switch providers.
