Random Restart
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I recently had been playing and had 11-12 hours into my character. I have been forced to restart once before (2 days ago), and also today as well. The problem happened similarly both times. First, I joined a server (one that I hadn't been playing before)to play with a friend. When it loaded up, and the screen started showing the game play, it instantly said that I was having trouble connecting to the server. So I did as I usually do when I play on the server I regularly play on, I exited out, and went to log back in. When it loaded back up, my player had been reset, so again I have to start all over again. After that just happen, everything I had done with the game today was a complete waste of my time.

What is the name of server, that deleted your character please??

Could you delete DayZ folder from: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\ and after your character is deleted again in the game, send us dxdiag and files from: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

Can you pack the files in winrar and upload it somewhere?
When the *.rar will be smaller than 5.000KB, you can attach it here.

Thank you.
