Holy hell, what is this forum? I've been waiting days, checking back until I could finally reply thinking my account needed to be verified or something, only to realize now that I can't send private messages nor reply to threads. You can only create new threads.
So the entire purpose of this is to help out cramara33 but I doubt they'll ever see this. I had the exact same issue and stumbled upon their post (https://arkservermanager.freeforums.net/thread/8117/invalid-auth-token), and I later figured out what's wrong.
The problem is BattlEye. The command "-NoBattlEye" needs to be the very last in the line of commands or it just won't work and BattlEye will launch anyways, preventing Steam users from connecting. I don't know how it being the last command can be ensured using the server manager; I resorted to managing it myself with SteamCMD and a bat file instead.
