Game shutdown takes a very long time
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I shutdown Dayz it goes to just a blank screen for a few minutes in which my computer is unresponsive which is very annoying. It also happens to my friend with a Windows 7 64 bit PC.

Same happens to me but with a bluey gray screen, I just kill task (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC or CTRL+ALT+DEL) find DayZ in the applications tab and end task. Works every time.

The problem with CTRL,ALT,DEL is that it only works some of the time as when I shutdown half the time my actual computer stops responding. Also it would just be nice if I didn't have to do that. It is a problem a problem with the game after all.

@cabooserooster - I totally agree it is a problem with the build also remember that it is not a game yet as it is still in development, these types of things are going to happen. My suggestion was to just provide a simple work around until this issue is addressed by the development team.

And just think how good this title will be once completed.

Maybe several minutes is a bit to much, but I agree that it takes up to 40-50 seconds until it closes the program.

I thing this is very low priority, but still a good Feedback.
So upvote.

A dev could see this and acknowledge so that in time during beta they can work also at this.
But as I said: VERY LOW PRIORITY ^^
