This all started last night. I began to load up Conan and it was hiccuping a lot, the cinematics began to jump and skip and then freeze up on the same spot where Conan is handing the axe to the woman. Freeze there and do nothing at all. I even waited 45 minutes at one stage and nothing.
I restarted my laptop and still, I got the same things. several restarts later. Same. I began to wipe other games to clear some extra space, nope, same issues after restart.
I then went on to do a clean install of Conan. Uninstalled, restarted laptop, installed, restarted laptop. Still the same issue.
Next step. I uninstalled steam. Complete wipe of steam and ARK started giving me corrupted files once I tried that.
I went to bed
Now, I got Conan back in. I was happy about this. I checked I could get on to Conan, and I could and it seemed to have sorted itself, bit of a hiccup. I tried getting into two of the servers I played on. nope, kept Fatal Erroring me. Not fun.
Next thing I tried was getting onto an official server. Yup, I got to create a character and I got onto the server. Then had to outrun the sandstorm. I survived. Go me.
I logged off that server and went on to try getting back onto The Grove. loading in all the mods. Nope Fatal Error!
It wont let me onto the old servers, it seems to freak out when trying to load in my character. No matter how many times I try I get fatal errors.
Yes I had to change my file path because of the corrupted ARK files.
Any help would be grately appreciated.
