Dayz is Constantly Crashing on all versions
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Whenever I join Dayz and start playing and looting and whatnot, it will crash within 5-10 minutes, constantly. The game just freezes, then it crashes, and I have to cntrl+alt+delete and close the game through the task manager. It's been happening for a couple of months now but I haven't reported it, hopefully you can find a fix.


Legacy ID
Game Crash
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start up Dayz
  2. Join a game
  3. Walk around for 5-10 minutes
  4. A crash will happen
Additional Information

Maybe it's related to the fact that there's too many items being loaded and my GPU/CPU can't handle it? It used to crash every 1-2 minutes once I'm in a game, but then I disabled AMD Overdrive and it stopped crashing that soon, now it's only 5-10 minutes. It happens a lot in towns and cities, particularly Svetlo, I've stopped playing as it's pretty unplayable. The crashing always happens in the latest stable version, haven't even gone near experimental.

Hi, any information on a fix? I should also add that my GPU is only a 256mb one. Also I logged onto my hardcore server and found most of my items missing, lost my pistols and ammo and shit, so presumably you guys were checking my character out. I also crashed about a minute after logging in for a bit.

You'll need to wait for a developer to come along and acknowledge this issue.

Your items were, unfortunately, most likely lost to some sort of bug.


Thank you for the feedback. We are aware of this issue and are currently working on a fix.

Please keep monitoring this issue for further updates.

Hi iidf123,
is this still an issue?
If so, please reproduce the crash again and upload the newly generated contents of the AppData folder.
Thank you,
