I tried to launch Ark Dev Kit from Steam, I end up on this web page : Workshop
I followed the instruction, but since I already had Unreal Engine 4 installed, I go to the Ark tab and look to download it.
Only thing is I have already download Ark Dev Kit through Steam and with my internet connection speed I needed more than 12 hours to download it.
So I simply set the downloading directory to my Steam, in Steam\steamapps\common\ARKDevKit (My Steam is not on my C Drive by the way and my 120Gb SSD as C Drive will not handle a 50Gb software, not enough free space).
But Epic Game Launcher simply tried to download Ark Dev Kit for 60Gb and create a ArkDevKit folder inside the existing one.
If I simply set the path to \Steam\steamapps\common\ the Launcher tell me : “Le répertoire doit être vide.” or in English it will probably be “The Repertory/Directory must be empty”
So here is my question :
How can I simply get the Ark Dev Kit to work without having to download it a second time with over 12h of unusable bandwidth and if possible not corrupting the one I already got through Steam who is 54Gb heavy and don’t have any use except opening a web page…?
I did not find any clear instructions to get it to work or about my case, all tutorial video are old and the system changed since.
