Character Data Issue
New, WishlistPublic


I bethink i got a big problem with my DAYZ SA character maybe it is an issue in C:\Users\Username\Documents\DayZ files but i´ve tried to delete them and checked the files in Steam to download them again but it has brought me nothing.

and so my character reset himself when i want to join any server

fortunately i´ve filmed how it happened.


How you can see in first Video, i was thrown out of the building and in second Video, i tried to join some servers again.
I try it since DAYZ Version:0.30.113860 also since almost a month I try to play Dayz Standalone without success.

If i click on: "Character" and chose one to Default and than join a Server, it gives me Error message: Session Lost/Connection failed
and if i go back to Mainmenu i just will be able to see my INVISIBLE Character.
So i click on:"Character" again and it shows me the standard character skin but not my setted one. It happens even on non-Battleye servers too.

Please help me to fix this problem

Additional Information

First i thought that i was banned , so i contacted bistudio
They answered:


I apologize for the inconvenience, the banning system is administrated
by Battleye, we have absolutely no involvement in the process of
detecting cheats/hacks nor administrating any bans etc. I would suggest
you contact Battleye directly:

You will still be able to play on non-battleye protected servers.

Best regards,

So then i contacted battleye
AND they answered :


I'm afraid I cannot help you there as this is not a BE-related error.
Please contact game support regarding this.

Bastian Suter
BattlEye Innovations

So i wanted to contact them but there says:

As the game is in alpha release / early access, for DayZ Standalone bugreporting, support and suggests please contact our developers trough DayZ Feedback tracker.
Thank you for understanding.

So now I hope that I get an answer here

I had this issue on one of my laptops. Had it happen on this one as well, but after I opened the server details and joined through that window, it wasnt an issue anymore. Seems like a lot of people are having the issue, but there are hardly any details about it anywhere on the net.

It´s not a ban because i cant even join an non-Battleye server

I have reinstalled DayZ Standalone: but like before ,same issue
I have reinstalled my whole Steam and downloaded "DAYZ Standalone" again: Same Issue.
AT 10.02.2014 i´ve restored my whole Computer and i still have the same issue!

thanks for your answer, but it doesnt helped me to join the server trough server details info

Yup. Same thing happened to me.. EXACTLY but only after the last patch on 2/7/2014. Prior to this last patch I never experienced a character loss issue. This is a definate GAME BREAKER BUG.
