What is ACM?

ACM is originally short-hand for Admin Command Menu, but it has recently, and will only from now further become, Advanced Command Menu, as it serves as a more streamlined, accessible and enhanced replacement to ARK's built-in administration mechanism attached to the ShowMyAdminManager console command.

Currently, it cannot reproduce every command or function from the built-in tool as many aspects of Admin commands and management is handled exclusively by commands and inaccessible classes/code.

Due to ACM' nature, it inadvertently serves a dual-purpose as acting as a "cheat" or "creative mode" tool for singleplayer due to the massive simplification of spawning items or creatures into the world and instant-taming.

Note: The shown screenshots of ACM' UI's likely will not appear exactly as they do in-game for you, my resolution is 3440x1440 so things get stretched a little by default.

ACM is not 100% functional, it is expected you will encounter issues using it as I bring everything online again.

How to use ACM?

The process is incredibly simple.

If you are either a whitelisted Admin on a server - that means your SteamID has been added to the AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt, playing Single Player or in a non-dedicated session, authorisation is entirely automated.

Password Required:
You must authenticate yourself normally, then use the appropriate command from the list below to have ACM verify your permission status for its use.

Permissions Authorised:
As an "advanced" feature of ACM, the commands and features that are either hand-built by myself as custom or are replicated to produce the same results as if a native command was used may be made available to a player by means of the Permission system still currently in progress but was implemented as of V2.7.0287.

This system allows the assigning of permissions to players without giving them the Admin password. It is still very much in progress and is alpha-level, and as such many checks and balances have not been completely implemented yet so caution must be exercised.

Once you are "authorised" via ACM, the keybindings that appear below are how ACM can be interacted with.

Current Default Keybindings:

Toggle ACM: Shift + F1

Open UI: Shift + Right Mouse

Use Target Command: Shift + Left Mouse

Open Target Command Menu: Shift + Middle Mouse

Command Structure:

IMPORTANT: All commands begin with the following:
cheat scriptcommand acm

To use a command, enter the above, then choose from below plus and further arguments.

  • me - checks for permission and spawns ACM, overrides temporary block.
  • toggle - removes ACM if present and temporarily blocks ACM from spawning until desired again.
  • all - see "me"; extended to all players in the world. RCON accepted.
Eg. "cheat scriptcommand acm scan me". - This is the primary activation command for ACM


  • bindings - restores bindings to default.
  • colours/colors - restores custom colours to default.
  • scalars - restores screen scaling options(and eventually tracking map scaling) to default.
  • all - resets all to default.
NOTE: If reset is not the secondary argument, bypasses binding events and directly opens My Settings UI. Eg. "cheat scriptcommand acm mysettings". If reset is the main argument, a listed option is also required. Eg. "cheat scriptcommand acm mysettings reset bindings".

  • reset - will remove AutoGen data and recommence data generation.
  • remove - will remove AutoGen data.
  • debug - will process AutoGen data and return basic debug level data regarding internal structure and saved information.
NOTE 1: All arguments have a secondary data point. all & null(eg: empty) are effectively the same, if the class name of a specific mod is specified, then AutoGen will only target that specific class and relevant data else if allmods is passed as the argument then all mod data is targeted. This name can be found in the mod folder in your ARK install. Eg. "cheat scriptcommand acm autogen reset PrimalGameData_ACM".

NOTE 2: The autogen sub-command is only available to whitelisted/authorised admins and RCON.

- ACM is nowhere near 100% operational. Not everything is working as expected.
- Any bindings you set within ACM will concurrently trigger with whatever actions have been bound in your key-bind settings for ARK.
- Target Commands will not fire with a weapon equipped, this requires further work and due to not consuming input I chose to prevent using it with weapons equipped.
- If ACM is acting up, you can use the command cheat scriptcommand acm scan toggle which will remove ACM from you, and followed up with the activation command, ACM will be re-spawned on you.

On the ACM menu S+ shows up as "Uncategorised" and I can't spawn anything.

I was wondering about leveling up and the godmode settings on the ACM mod? I have full access to do everything however unlike videos that showcased this mod years ago, things appear to be frustratingly different. One issue is that leveling up using this mod is pointless, as the experience is not instant but gained over a very slow period of time. In-fact, spawning in the resources for the Keep mod would be an even faster way. Another issue that I am experiencing includes no longer being able to change other players (including myself) levels and statistics such as weight & Hunger. There also seems to be a big 'disabled' menu on the player menu, what is this exactly? Thanks!

Master Obelawe, [quote] we use it all the time and spawning woks well when you doing builds

you are using it the wrong way all command work fine you need to know the keys why dont you hold shift then F1 and study all tabs
