Hey GTA V Forums,


Today I made a quick instructional video how not to delete your character and how to possibly get it back. There is a lot of people having this problem and I just wanna do my part to ensure you guys dont lose your hard work.





If you log into GTA Online and discover that the multiplayer character you play has disappeared, do not start another a new one. This issue appears to be related to the fact that the character is stored on Rockstar Games' cloud servers. So, it's possible that you aren't seeing your multiplayer character because the servers are having problems loading it and not because it was completely deleted.



Hope you guys get your chracter back,


Garrett

Go outside and stare at the sun. If your eyes start hurting after 30 seconds: up. After 40 seconds: down.

To check if there'd online, go in SP and pause the game. Go to the Gallery tan and click X. If the photos load then good. Then go to the Friends tan and wait for it to load. After it loads and you can browse your friends,

The cloud is up.

Sometimes it will tell you when you trying to play GTA online and sometimes it may be an error on their end where you cant see your character.
The best thing to do in this instance is to go to the GTA Online Rockstar Social Club page and see if the character you created still shows up there. If it does, you just need to wait it out for Rockstar to straighten out the online servers. If its not check if on the character creation tab there is money on the screen that is also a dead giveawya that your character still exists.


BEST TIP: DONT MAKE A NEW CHARACTER!!!!!

Well I didn't know. So theres at least one person. Thanks for the vid, unfortunately no luck for me. I'm checking in every morning and evening until we get some concrete news. I'd rather them tell me now if my whole save is gone for good, as then I could at least play the game from level 1. I am afraid to even OPEN slot 2... That sounds dirty... Come on just push through it... So did that... Um... I'm just going to wait a few more days.

You got your character back, and you're worried about your car?
