Delete Game Progress in Conan Exiles


Hosting Conan Exiles servers allow for many different features, such as mods and settings for customized experiences. This is also true for singleplayer gameplay sessions, as the Steam Workshop has lots of content to try out. However, in some scenarios the world’s progression needs to be reset. This can be caused by a variety of reasons, whether it’s too many modifications or simply wanting to start over. Solving this can be tricky, as it involves deleting specific files within the game and/or server. Due to this, our panel will simplify the entire process for you to reset progress. As for solo worlds, we’ll completely summarize the required steps to erase them. Keeping everything in mind, let’s explore how to delete game progress in Conan Exiles in this Apex Hosting tutorial.

Deleting Server Save Files

Removing your server’s save files involves two possible methods, manual and automatic. Each of these are easily done through the panel, with both ways achieving the same goal. However, make sure you’re using the correct Server Profile for this process. If you mistakenly use the incorrect one, other precious files can be accidentally removed. Choose one of the two methods down below to begin deleting game progress in Conan Exiles.

Automatic Method

  1. Navigate towards your Apex server panel, then press Stop and wait for it to shut down.
  2. Once this finishes, click Reset Server Files near the bottom left.

Common Issues

Game Progress Persists
In cases where your game’s progression is persistent, the cause likely originated from deleting the wrong files. This may happen if you use server profiles on the panel, so make sure you’re enabling the correct one. However, you may have had the server/game online while removing the files. Ensure everything gets shut down properly before deleting any progress. Otherwise, the removal process for the folders could have failed. In this particular scenario, having administrative computer privileges or an external FTP program will resolve the issue for both singleplayer and the server.
Unable to Find Folders
If you’re unable to locate any of the Saved folders and files, then it can be possible you don’t have any stored game progression. This occurs when you’ve already deleted the save or an unforeseen server-related problem arose. Since there is no data, you can simply generate a new world to begin playing with a fresh start. However, if you confirm the save appears in-game, then make sure you’re using the right server profile to delete it. Otherwise, you may want to try using the Automatic Method instead of the manual variant to delete the progression.
