[PS4] Patch 108 to 109 Local Characters no longer recognized

  • Closed

Environment: PS4 1.09, Game originating from 1.08 or earlier

Issue: When returning to a saved server offline game after the upgrade, the character thumbnails for the levels came up as unselected. After starting the original world, we had to select new characters, which started from the start point, with initial equipment. All equipment on the character prior to 1.09 upgrade was gone.

After disconnecting, the game was saved with the characters, however the data was no longer present. This appears to be a version incompatibility.

Expected Result: When returning to a saved server offline game after the update, the entire world is left in tact.

Notes:

  • When trying to fix, we rolled back by 1 day to observe if this would restore our characters, but it also yielded no selected characters, and we had to reselect again.
  • Server Playstyle has no choice, and is no longer selectable. Was Cooperative.
  • Server Mode is Offline. We originally had a section that called out that the game was Split-Screen that is no longer present.

Server Settings

  • Late Winter Day 174
  • Game Mode Endless
  • No Server Mode selected
  • Players 2

  • Spring None
  • Summer None
  • Poison Birchnut Trees None
  • Bearger None
  • ??? None

  • Dragonfly None

User Feedback


We have the exact same problem.. We can launch our world but have to reselect our characters, with a loss of inventory obviously. Our story is IDENTICAL lol. Please fix this, I redownloaded the old save state and I'll leave it until the next update, hopefully with a fix..
