I will put a version on my discord available for download which I believe will resolve this issue.I've seen a few people mentioning that they have the error:
"[Permission][error] (d:\programs\ark\plugins\permissions\permissions\private\hooks.cpp Permissions::Hooks::Hook_AShooterGameMode_HandleNewPlayer) Couldn't add player"
I too now have this issue as of updating to the most recent version of the plugin. I haven't managed to find a reliable fix yet, so I wondered if anyone else had?
So far I have done the follow:
I've even gone as far as to drop the database, recreate it, create a new user (legacy auth), fresh ARK server & ARK API & permissions, updated permissions config, booted the server and let the plugin automatically generate the MySQL tables it needs.
- Checked DB connection information, using legacy authentication, all fine.
- DB user has all privileges granted.
- Fresh ARK API installation.
- Downloaded the most recent Permissions version, replaced existing plugin.
- Truncated players, permissiongroups, tribepermissions tables.
Currently I have restored my permissions DB back to what it was before I updated the plugin so I still have all the players in there. It's still happening.
What's odd is that it doesn't happen to every player. It seems to happen randomly, sometimes a lot, sometimes fewer. I haven't found a pattern yet.
I'm a little lost on what else to try really.
It will be located in "General -> ark-api-fixes" channel.
