Game crashes when loading the server (Error: Server Error)
“Error: Server Error” occurs most often when the most recent autosave have become corrupted. This can be solved by rolling back to the previous save, although you may lose some progress.
Changes in the most recent patch (Hotfix 0.5.42050) should greatly decrease the likelihood of a
save becoming corrupt. We're continuously working on improving the saving process to
prevent issues like this in the future.
To revert your server to an earlier save:
Locate the Saves folder by copy/pasting this text in your file browser: %userprofile%\AppData\LocalLow\Stunlock Studios\VRising\Saves
Locate the server you want to roll back a save for. The easiest way to do this is to enter the v1 folder, then check the name of the server in each folder's ServerHostSettings.JSON file.
When you have found the server, you will see a number of autosave folders. Identify the most recent autosave folder. The most recent folder will have the highest number in its name.
To roll back to a previous save, move the most recent autosave folder somewhere else on your PC.
Once you have moved the folder, try launching the game and attempt to host the server again.
We recommend moving the most recent autosave folder instead of deleting it, as there is a
small chance that rolling back to the second most recent save does not fully resolve the issue.
