    Anyone playing this?

    I know Early Access is the devil, Dayz is still garbage and H1Z1 is the worst game in existence. But hell we had endless fun in Minecraft so some mates and myself took the plunge yet again.

    It doesn't run particularly well.
    Office Servers are full of trolls.

    But man I guess it's the kid in my but I love this game, brings back fond memories of Dino Riders... It has crafting, gunning, and DINOSAURS!
    In fact we love it so much we registered our own Kiwi/Aussie Server.

    However having major issues with my new 390... Anyone else have major driver crashes? Nothing in other games.

    A couple of reads the forum search spit out:

    ARK: Survival Evolved thread by Ghostly
    ARK: Survival Evolved thread by DarkKnightDude

    also this threads were a big deal, respectively:

    ARK: Survival Evolved DX12 in future patch notes thread by Barry J
    First Direct X 12 game: ARK: Survival Evolved Patch coming Friday. thread by AMDFreeSync


    Mind you, there's quite a few people playing it around here, it runs not that good on average, and the dx12 patch has been postponed, shortly before it was supposed to be released.

    I played it during the free weekend a couple weeks ago and hated it. This is by far the worst survival game I have played. And whoever thought it was a good idea to add the pooping feature in the game is an idiot. I killed several people during that weekend and when looting their body their inventory was full of poop.

    Normally poop doesn't go into your inventory but on the ground. Most likely they picked up the poop themselves.

    That's my point. These idiots go around collecting poop from themselves, other players, dinosaurs. Unless that poop can be used for something at higher levels than I see no purpose other than to troll people.

    Looking forward to the DX12 patch, haven't tried it yet on my new rig.

    I'll probably wait for the dx12 patch to hit live.

    Since it's Early Access it's really buggy and extremely unoptimized but it feels like a good game with many possibilities.

    Yeah i'm currently waiting for them to optimize it, and for the DX12 patch.

    My PC is fairly decent, i hoped it would run good but nope. :(

    And they should stop adding SOOO much stuff, i did try it again not long ago, and some bases i found damn, so much new things you can build.
    That's all fine and dandy, but they should focus more on performance.

    This game runs like garbage. They keep promising performance improvements but never get to them. I also think after announcing the game would be on Xbox One that their focus has shifted from PC to that. :3eyes:

    I hope it will improve things. And also improve the UI, it's messed up and needs scaling options.

    Yea, I wonder if any system can get this to work well :(
