This plugin has been working great for me for months.. but in the last 2-3 days it started acting up.

If i send a large message (write until the ARK UI caps the characters and blocks you from typing more.)

The message is delayed by a good 2-6 seconds or more before i see it localy. its prevents me from doing any actions localy (riding a dino, geting on or off or opening inventorys is all delayed) but localy i havnt crashed yet. i tryed this from 2 maps aberration and theisland

2 of my 5 maps crash as a result each time.

the first test i did crashed my rag map and the island

then my 2nd test crashed rag again and valgero..

and my 3rd test it crashed rag and crystal isle....

i tried setting the async option to true and to false didnt seem to help ither way.

no speical characters... just normal letters in my tests to keep it simple.

if the message is short i never seem to have this problem...

this is kinda a big issues... if my players notice they can take advantage and crash the servers with just chat.... not even spam.. 1 message.

any suggestions?

u can come test it at

Theisland: https://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/ark/7016559
Rag: https://www.battlemetrics.com/servers/ark/7126285

the crash logs are empty i would of loved to provide them.. -_-

maybe you can add an option in the config to limit the number of characters in a message. might be a quick fix until you find the issue.

thanks for your time.

For some reason people can not see Crystal Isles chat on valguero, despite having reinstalled the plugin and config on both servers.

Reading all the above comments I take it this plugin has reach EndOfLife?

It's it as is, won't be supported any further developing for this plugin.

I made this account for exactly one purpose:

To ask that anyone who has SUCCESSFULLY INSTALLED THIS PLUGIN AND HAD IT WORK ACROSS MULTIPLE ARKS, create a single post with the following information:

1.) Please include your EXACT .json details (assuming you have the exact details matching across all servers) Please include an explanation of the "CrossChatKey" and its significance in the plugin.
2.) Please specify whether you are using a private server (IE: you personally own the machine on which you are running the server/s) or you are renting servers from a hosting service.
3.) What files need to be configured, how to do so and why.
4.) What the conditions of each server need to be in order to successfully run the plugin. (IE: Port forwarding, UTF-Encoding, etc)

I read each and every post in this entire thread and not ONE SINGLE PERSON, even those appearing to know what they're doing, took five minutes of their time to briefly explain the installation process, not even the mod author, who has a Discord which I implore everyone to utilize in troubleshooting: OwnProx#3654

I have done everything I need to do to set up this plugin and still cannot get it to work, even my server host can't figure it out. All of the posts like mine have gone unanswered or given sidelong replies that ultimately help nobody. Please somebody find the time to comprehensively answer the question literally half of this thread is asking.

I'm sorry, but for your knowledge, this plugin is as it is. If it works. It works. I have used it before But I host my server completely by myself and I had zero issues with it at that time.
If you have decent knowledge about networking and how TCP works it should be hard to figure out how to get plugin to work.

You should know the further development of this plugin has halted, due to the instability of the built-in RCON in ARK.

Here is an example from my config:
JSON:
{
    "CrossChatKey":"mycluster-cluster-00", <--- Could be anything
    "CrossChatMapNameInclude":true, <--- If we should send the Map name to other servers
    "RconServers":[
    "10.1.2.10:37000", <--- 10.1.2.10 = Internal IP for the machine. 37000 = The port for the RCON port that the server use
    "10.1.2.10:37001",
    "10.1.2.10:37002",
    "10.1.2.10:37003",
    "10.1.2.10:37004",
    "10.1.2.10:37005"
    ],
    "CrossChatMapNameOverride":"(EX)", <--- This option customize the "Name" the plugin send to other servers.
    "Async":true <-- If the the chat should be Async or not
}
Further development of this plugin has been done here: https://arkserverapi.com/index.php?resources/advanced-chat.29/
Where it uses another technic. instead of "RCON"

I just set this up last night. 9/3/2020. It's working great.
1)The key can be anything you want it to be. Simply set up this config and copy it into the arkapi/plugins/rconcrossserverchat folder in every servers directory. Here is my config: 127.0.0.1 for server IP because my servers all reside on the same box. If your servers are on separate IP addresses, make sure you put those IP addresses there instead. The ports listed after the IP address are the RCON ports for each of the servers. If these are incorrect or your firewall does not allow rcon over those ports, this plugin will not work.
Code:
{
    "CrossChatKey":"123456",
    "CrossChatMapNameInclude":true,
    "RconServers":[
    "127.0.0.1:32330",
    "127.0.0.1:32332",
    "127.0.0.1:32334",
    "127.0.0.1:32336",
    "127.0.0.1:32338"
    ],
    "CrossChatMapNameOverride":"",
    "Async":true
}
2)I am running my own servers on a dedicated box. Located in a datacenter.


3)Config.Json is the only file you need to configure.

4)The RCON ports of your servers need to be open.

Note: Once it's installed on all of the servers, restart them. I tried manually loading the plugin and it said it loaded, but nothing started working until I actually restarted all of the servers.
