Character locked in Database
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I joined UK 0-2 got into the loading screen and while I was in the loading screen the game then crashed/ closed itself. Then i started DayZ again wanted to join UK 0-1 came into the loading screen and at the bottom of the loading screen it said "Character locked in database, remaing attempts 5" so i waited for the attempts to finish and then i got kicked with the reasson "character locked in database". 5 mins later i tried to join UK-03 and was locked again. I haven't tried any other Servers. I'm gonna do that now and update this report in case it will work on other servers.

Event Timeline

  1. Try on DE-01 didn't work Character still locked.
  1. Try on US Northeast 2-1 didn't work Character still locked.
  1. Try on UK 0-3 after I changed my Character didn't work Character is still locked. I'm gonna stop trying now and will wait for a "unlock of my character" also I'll upload my crash dumps in here including my DxDiag and I also have -"dologs" in my DayZ properties enabled! Hope this helps.


I'll now delete my "chars.DayZProfile" located in >"USERNAME" > Documents > DayZ. According to a friend this helped him even though his character was deleted and he had to respawn with a new one, but it's a temporary solution.

Nevermind i tried one last time to join a Server which was a UK one and now it works without deleting my "chars.DayZProfile"
