Character Reset Randomly Upon Joining A Server
New, WishlistPublic


I was playing DayZ today on the latest version, 0.30.114008, and i was walking around the NWAF Area when the server restarted (no message received 10, 11 etc.) and i was auto-disconnected. So i go to the server menu and rejoin that server, but as what usually happens upon a server restart is that it goes to the black please wait... screen but stays there for way to long, so i press escape, and im no longer in the please wait screen and i can actually see where im standing. so i exit and rejoin but instead of being by the airfield, im buy the beach, with nothing but a flashlight and a battery... this annoys me because i had good loot. email me on for a video, as i was recording at this point.


This hasn't happened in 0.31.114343 yet. (Hope it doesn't)

A friend told me he had the same problems and he found a few tips online which work for him, don't know why they work but here they are:

  1. When looking for a server, wait till all the servers load not just 10-20 before you join one
  2. If a server restarts, wait a few seconds (30-40) before joining in that server
  3. If your character was reset, DO NOT MOVE, don't touch your mouse don't do anything, just leave the server, give it a minute, and log back in to a different server.

Hope this helps (And maybe fixed in 0.31.114343)
Have fun and don't rage too much

This just happened to me I was at the north Air Field had to take the dog out side and when I came back to connect to the server and my character was a fresh re spawn this needs to be fixed ASAP!

It happened to me couple times.

It happened to me right after I got DC'd from a restarting server.
