Some friends of mine bought this game for me on 2-25-20. I logged in to their dedicated server, selected Blackwood Map, and the three of us played together for a few hours. The highlight of the night was I leveled quite a bit and was able to tame me a monkey. At the end of the session, I walked into their house and logged out for the night. After work the next day, I go to log in and it takes me straight to the Character Creation screen. Confused, I restart everything and retry again. Same issue. So of course I come here and try to find some topics on this.
So I search for "Character Missing" in forums and some other things and see this was kinda a big thing in Jan, 2019 I think. But I am not finding much info on it recently. I did see a few post about missing characters, but really has no responses and are no help. I did read a few things to do but I am not sure since I am new and haven't been following this game.
1) I seen a few post that warns you should not create a new character. It overwrites the previous character. Just wait it out and it will come back. So I didn't create a new toon last night and didnt get to play. Gonna see if I can log in when I get home today after work.
2) I seen a post by Dollie(I guess a mod) that says go ahead and create a new character. I dont mind this, I only have a few hours into that character anyways. But not sure I want to play 300 hours then lose a toon in the future. Only to have to grind again.
3) I also ran a "Verify Files" from Steam, and every time I run it, it says "1 file was in error and it replaces it". But this is every time I run it. I think I ran it 4 or 5 times last night and it kept saying it has one file that will be reacquired.
At this point I am not sure what to do. Make a new character? Uninstall and download again? Wait it out? Any help from some veterans around here that can give me an idea of what I should do would be much appreciated. And If I have missed a big post on all of this, I am sorry.
P.S. I asked my friends in game If I was still part of the Company and if my monkey was still there that I tamed before I logged off. I was still in the Company, and my monkey was still there.
P.S.S. Only thing that was even slightly weird was when I first logged into the game, I was already dead. I assume this happened because first time loading games, it takes a little bit. And I figured I was mauled by a tiger waiting for everything to load up. I respawned and had fun the rest of the night.
