Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

    Its not really glitch. Server owners have been doing that for years. Even I do that. I am sure Nitrado Dev Team is already looking into what they can do. Typically its the vendors that control this not a host. Typically with non console servers its a bit more open what can be controlled and what cant. With consoles, it is very limited what can be done. I am sure the Game Dev once it has an update they will release to Nitrado. As for the limit of characters, I doubt it will be increased. Even ARK servers have a limit and have for years. You may want to contact Nitrado Support directly by submitting a ticket. They can escalate to Devs as needed. The moderators are really just guessing and providing info from prior experiences in the gaming industry.

    sorry I dont have a precise answer.

    Is the 64 Character count accurate for server names on PS4? and does a space = a character as well?

    Also is the 64 Characters including spaces? I see a lot of servers on the DayZ Community Server listing that are on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th page that have at least 128 characters.. With about 64 of those characters being spaces before their server name.... Can you please tell us when Nitrado be fixing the Special Characters Glitch and limit the amount of the characters to prevent server issues?

    By Special Character Glitch I mean: People who are abusing the system by using special characters in front of their actual server name, or multiple spaces. This way their server appears at the top of the search on the first few pages.


    Are you asking how many characters you can have in the server name itself. If you have too long of a server names it will constantly crash your server also i wouldn't special characters either. Best to keep it short if possible.

    Yes, I am asking how many characters I can have in a server name, and what/when will Nitrado be changing the character limit

    I have had my server running somewhat decently yesterday but for some reason today it keeps crashing; and keeps disappearing from the DayZ Community Server listing on PS4.

    Also I have submitted 2 Support tickets a 2-3 days ago in regards to server issues but have not yet received any response.

    Issue #1 server keeps crashing continuously.

    Issue #2 you keep taking timing off my account when my server has barely been usable since it started last Friday August 16th.

    Issue #3 I decreased my slots from 100 to 64 and followed the directions ii n the process of doing that. It showed my account having a big credit which I decided to extend my server length with by months. However now it's not showing any of that.. No server extension and No credit in my account.

    I have had my server running somewhat decently yesterday but for some reason today it keeps crashing; Or it won't be showing up in the DayZ Community Server listing. This is VERY frustrating because I have paid for a service that so far isn't running smoothly at all, and even more so I have been investing so much time trying to build a community for my server and get players in there... but then the server keeps crashing and they go play somewhere else...... ***SOOO FRUSTRATED***

    Also I have submitted 2 Support ticked a couple days ago in regards to server issues but have not yet received any response.

    Has anyone had issues with this? I have mine set to 3am and 3pm but it seems to just be restarting at random times through out the day/night... Either that or the server keeps shutting down and then restarting it's self?

    To set up my custom server restart times I did it through web interface under tools/timed restart. Is that the correct way?

    Please take a look at the Log Files I attached to this thread and if you can help or inform me of anything I would appreciate it :)

    Im trying to get mine figured out but im struggling... I don't know why they have to make it some complicated lol...

    I want to have 2 server restarts (3am/3pm) which I already setup...

    This is where I get lost; I would like to have 3 full cycles, Each cycle being 4 Hours Long (3 Cycles x 4 Hours = 12 Hours then Server Restart) Id like to have 3.5 Hours of Daylight and 30 Minutes of night).

    Custom Servertime: 2015/4/8/05/25

    Tried to copy a post I saw.. it may be a little out dated and not even work anymore...

    DayZ Server Admin Time Settings & Day/Night Cycle - Dayz TV

    Good things come in time :) lol I was a little bitter having to wait to be honest.. But they did/do have their hands tied waiting for the game to be stable enough for them to open more servers.. plus have a backlog of ordered servers. Just be more understanding of the situation. You will get what you paid for and wont lose any of your server time.

    I got lost on the 3rd step

    Step 1:

    So far I want 2 server restarts (3am/3pm) which would equal 12

    Step 2:

    I want my days to be 3 to 3.5 hours long ok no real time. Which would be either of these...

    12/4 = 3

    12/3.4 = 3.5294117647

    Step 3:

    Lost AF... But I want my night time to be about 20-30 minutes of pure darkness.

    How would you calculate sunrise and sunset into the equation?

    Im trying to calculate having about a 15 minute sunrise, 3 to 3.5 hours of actual daylight playtime followed by 15minute sunset and then 20 to 30 minutes of night. All of this being in a real-time 4 hour period and being able to have 3 full cycles between each server restart.

    How do I know which months and days/times are best for my scenario.. is there a chart or anything showing this information?

    Because it's not based off my location it would be based off of actual game location or server location ?

    Can someone help me with this setup? I'm trying to setup a public server.

    I want the server to restart at 3:00am and 3:00pm

    I'd like there to be roughly 3.5 hours of daylight (including sunrise/sunset) and 20-30 minutes of night time.

    So I guess a 4 hour cycle of day/night repeated 3 times between each 12 hour server restart.

    I'm also not sure what would be good setting for Custom Servertime or what that even is? And should persistent server time be on or off?

    Any additional settings advice would be greatly appreciated

    I actually read that post, tried to reply to it but it kept giving me an error.. also I'm horrible at math and can't figure out the proper numbers/settings I need to input.

    I don't see where it asks me what time I want the server to restart.

    What is persistent server time?

    When people play on that server will it automatically save their gear and such? And can they go play on another server with that gear?
