Purchase Info:
After payment join my Discord via "Get Support" button (top right), and send me your hwid. The plugin will print it in console when not authorized.
Please give me at least 1-24 hours to setup hwid info. No new DLL is needed.
This purchase comes with basic support if needed.

Hwid Info:
- Each license represents a physical machine, so 6 ark servers running on one machine would only need 1 licence, Additional licensee's are required when using multiple physical servers.
- Are you moving server host/upgrading hardware and worried about the hwid? Not a problem send me a pm, here or on discord, with the new hwid and I will have it updated. In most cases within the hour, but it can take up to 24 hours depending upon my availability at that moment.

For questions or more information join my Discord via this link:
(This is a temporary link, and unless assigned a role, you automatically leave server when you go offline on discord.)
