Setup JoinControl whitelist for your server
JoinControl is a great mod, that does what you expect the normal whitelist should do. Premium ARK offers an API for all connected gameservers, allowing effortless whitelisting without restarts!
Step 1: Install JoinControl
Go to the 'Mods' section of your gameserver and install the mod JoinControl. Mod ID: 949422684
Step 2: Copy your JoinControl config to your Config template
If you are using an Easy mode config template, you do not have to setup anything. JoinControl is automatically setup for you.
When you do not have Easy mode turned on, or you are using a 3rd party gameserver, please make sure to add the JoinControl config to your config template.
You can find the JoinControl config for your gameserver on the connect tab, with your gameserver.
Step 3: Disable default RCON whitelisting
Step 4: remove -exclusivejoin
If you are using an old config, please make sure that -exclusivejoin is removed from your configs. Otherwise JoinControl does not work.
