ARK update 271 released to fix boss exploits issues – Patch Notes

ARK update 271 is now available for download on PC. The latest ARK 271 patch has fixed some boss exploits issues with the previous updates. In addition, bRawSockets server option now has correct performance (server stalls eliminated), as good or better than Steam sockets.

Update: More updates are now available including 271.12, 271.15, 271.16, 271.17 and 271.2. Read the combined changelog below.

ARK update 271.2 Patch Notes

  • Fixed an issue where fertilizer would occasionally restore its lifespan.
  • Fixed an exploit which would allow players to get under the map.
  • Fixed a bug where remote keypads sometimes wouldn’t work.
  • Fixed a server startup crash, primarily affecting mods such as S+ & more.
  • Defaulted dedicated server ?bRawSockets mode to not use threaded networking, seemed to generally be a net performance loss in our analysis. Can still be forcefully enabled with -forcenetthreading.
  • Fixed a spawn issue with Ragnarok Lava Golem Boss.
  • Further improved performance of ?bRawSockets servers by eliminating threading “critical sections”
  • Added -nonetthreading option for bRawSockets servers to only utilize a single thread for networking (useful to improve performance for machines with more servers than cpu cores, especially on Linux).
  • Baby Bone Scalings & Gestation Setups now stack from Mods, and Dino Entry Icon now stack from Mods.
  • Fixed client side dino initialization crash.
  • Fixed issue with local events on the client.

ARK update 271.11 Patch Notes

  • According to the latest ARK patch notes, Baby Bone Scalings & Gestation Setups now stack from Mods, and Dino Entry Icon now stack from Mods.
  • Fixed client side dino initialization crash.
  • ARK 271.11 patch has fixed an issue with local events on the client.

ARK update 271 Patch Notes

  • According to the latest ARK patch notes, Game.ini [ShooterGameMode] bUseTameLimitForStructuresOnly config option, which if true will make Tame Units only be applied and used for Platforms with Structures and Rafts. Defaults false. Tame Units on Non-Legacy Official PvP now have this true (thus in effect disabling Tame Units for Dinos without Platform Structures).
  • bRawSockets server option now has correct performance (server stalls eliminated), as good or better than Steam sockets
  • ARK 271 patch has fixed some boss exploits issues.

Previously, the major ARK update 270 was released on PC which added new Tek Sword, Tek Shield, and Tek Structure to the game. The new Tek Sword is capable of a dash-charge attack and has armor piercing capability, while the Tek Shield can reflect incoming projectiles and bullets, and can completely stop splash damage.
