ARK not installing

Recommended Posts

Hey, my problem is that ARK is permanently downloading, it has already downloaded 26.8 GB of 26.8 GB down. This means that the update will never finish (it has been updating for 2 days now), all files are already unzipped and in the download folder (D: \ Steam ARK \ steamapps \ downloading \ 346110). I have talked to a moderator from the ARK Germany forum so far (who came to the conclusion that there is a problem with the installation process) as well as support from Steam Support/StudioWilcard Support, which could not help me yet, here is what I already did: emptied Steamcache several times; Steam download region changed several times; Steam completely deleted and reinstalled on another disk; ARK installed on all my 3 hard drives to eliminate disk damage (over 1 TB of free space); Repair ARK files; Pull ARK files from the download folder to the ARK folder and start the game through the (ShooterGame.exe (usually starts the game)) -> error message; Copied ARK files from the download folder to the ARK folder and tried to repair the files through Steam; Windows registry emptied; Run through CCleaner; Minimum requirements of the PC hardware compared with the hardware recommended by StudioWildcard (sufficient); Driver reinstalled; all anti-virus programs and firewalls were turned off; my modem and router restarted (20min between off and on);  downloaded ARK on the mobile data of my smartphone and running Steam, of course, always in the administrator mode. Despite everything, absolutely nothing has changed and I still get the same connection timeout error message.


All other downloads of games are done normally and do not delay.
