Persistent PIE

To enable persistent PIE, a few things must be done.

Open the ARKDevKit directory in File Explorer, and copy RunEditorSDK.bat so that the modifications are not lost with DevKit updates. Name the file RunPersistentEditorSDK.bat. Add -ForceLoad and -ForceSave to the argument list.

call "%~dp0Engine\Binaries\Win64\ShooterGameEditor.exe" "%~dp0Projects\ShooterGame\ShooterGame.uproject" -ForceLoad -ForceSave -Installed -AllowPCG -log -DontBuildEditorGrass -NetDriverOverrides=/Script/OnlineSubsystemUtils.IpNetDriver

Launch ADK using this new .bat file when testing with Persistent PIE.

With ADK open, open the World Settings (Window -> World Settings) and enable Play Persistent Player.
