ARK Server Not Showing in Browser List

The following guide will help you troubleshoot why your service isn't showing up in the in-game browser listing.

Servers can take up to 5 - 10 minutes to start
You will know it's started when the CPU drops to around 50% and RAM is at 2-3GB


The game currently has been updating 4 - 5 times per day, and the servers usually need an update as well to stay in the listing.

1) Click Stop on your service.
2) Click the 'STEAM Update' button and wait for it to finish
3) Start your server

If this doesn't work, then the issue is probably the browser listing. Currently there is a bug which prevents servers from being shown to every user. This issue is only the in game browser and doesn't affect the STEAM list.

Right click the STEAM icon and press 'Servers'
