Disappearing Characters
« on: October 07, 2013, 03:49:13 pm »
Some of the highest ranked members in the crew have lost their characters in the last 24 hours. The same happened to me on thursday.

BUT DON'T LOSE HOPE. The fact that you can't see your character doesn't mean that it's gone for good. Shut down your console and come back later. AVOID making a new character in the same slot, because this can overwrite the old data which might still be hidden somewhere in the skeptical cloud of R*. That was what i did and i won't see that character again. If you're still able to see your character on social club you should be quite confident in retaining your character.

How to prevent losing your character:
- Never make a new character in the same slot if you can't see the original
- When quitting GTA Online, go to single-player first (this will make the game save the data, though no guarantee)
- If you get the 'Rockstar Cloud Servers Is Down'-message when trying to connect to GTA Online, avoid pressing the 'retry'-bottom as this may cause you loosing data.

Hope this helped! :)
