  16. You will need to use a fake steam account.
  17. Your fake steam account need to have steamplay activated. It means, you need to have friends activated. It can be achieved by activating any game with a key. I'm not really sure, since my fake steam accounts are kinda old... (you can also use your main steam account, but at your own risk)
  18.  
  19. 1) if you have steam running, exit it
  20. 2) locate your steam folder (ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\). rename the file \appcache\packageinfo.vdf into anything else (ex: packageinfo.vdf.backup)
  21. 3) login to your fake account (a new packageinfo.vdf will be generated)
  22. 4) exit steam
  23. 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 patchter
  24. 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.
  25. 7) Run ARK_Launcher_MP.exe
  26. 8) In game main menu, click "JOIN ARK", select filter "Unofficial". You will see all available servers. Click "Join" to connect
  27. 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
  28.  
  29. If you did everything above, and its still not working, you should better wait for better solution. please keep in mind, its an very early mp way to play on cracked servers and the game itself is in very early stage.
  30.  
  31. And it is confirmed working, since people are already playing on my cracked server.
  32.  
  33.  
  34. Launcher options:
  35. nomansky: launch without the sky system and fallback to a simple sky (which also currently makes the water turn green). Just in case anyone gets driver crashes non-stop until we have those resolved
  36. DX10 Shaders: force using directX 10 shaders. You should get more FPS
  37.
