Okay, so, I tried all that and I’ll put together a more comprehensive diagnostic of the problem. Firstly, a simple reboot of the PC and, with it steam, did not solve the issue.
When I attempted to rejoin the same server I uploaded my transfer from, I did get a different menu with an actual button recognizing the import feature but it said “Cannot Import Character”. I assume that’s because either the old server has the feature “CanImportDirectlyFromSameServer” is disabled, or because 24 hours has not passed. However, thank you for this tip because at least I know now what that first screen should look like.
I’ve attached images of my server “New Server” and the previous server “Conan Old Server”. You can see from the pictures that my server never even gives the option screen for importing a character and simply goes into the default character creation screen.
I’m trying to figure out why my server seems to be blocking the feature, whereas there is clearly an import character available and the ServerTransferEnabled feature is set to true (can be seen on the g-portal server settings page as well as the settings.ini file).
For further clarification, both servers are PVE, both are unofficial servers.
