Have you tried to follow this guide:After you have installed the API the console should show up a bit different and you should it loading the plugins you have added to the plugin folder.
An important note is that you installed the API under BIN/Win64 Folder (Same folder as the ShooterGameServer.exe belongs)
And have a folder in Win64 named "ArkAPI" with a subfolder "Plugins".
So basically install the API Under \ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64
Installed this Plugin under: \ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64\ArkApi\Plugins
You need to check your kits what options and values they have.
So I've done all that, is there some extra setup after the install?
